** A small example in ep 4 season 8. When Reid calls Maeve, she asks him if he is taking his riboflavin and magnesium. Reid replies "yes, and the occasional shot of B2". Riboflavin ''is'' vitamin B2.

** In the episode "Perennials" (season 8), the suspect believes himself to be the reincarnation of a serial killer who died the day he was born, in the same hospital, and is killing the people he believes are reincarnations of the dead killer's victims, placing fly larvae by their bodies in the belief that it will make their souls be reborn into these instead of humans, so ending the cycle. Morgan states that "See, a fundamental tenet of reincarnation is that you can come back in any life form, not just human" (as part of {{Karma}}). Wrong. In ''some'' reincarnation beliefs, such as Hindus', this is true; however, others, such as the Druze, believe people are only reborn in human bodies, not animals. They also differ on whether people can be reborn into different sexes than they had in their previous life, along with the concept of karma, which is primarily Hindu belief.

* GoneHorriblyRight / GoneHorriblyWrong: "Hero Worship" [[spoiler: A guy rigs a bomb to play hero and impress his girlfriend, whose dead husband wasn't just his best friend but a heroic soldier. The bomb cracks a gas line, accidentally killing a bunch of people, and then ''another'' bomber gets pissed that he's getting all the attention. (Perhaps needless to say, the first bomber's relationship with his girlfriend does not survive)]]
** Just the second one: The VigilanteMan in "Protection" is determined to find the man who killed his mother and terrorized his tenants and clean up the streets in the meantime. Actually, [[spoiler: the criminal was in already in jail in another city; the schizophrenic [=UnSub=] killed the tenants and has been living with delusions of them (ironically said delusions want him to take his meds), and one of his victims was not only innocent, he was also a star student who was on his way out of the bad neighborhood when the [=UnSub=] imagined he was a mugger.]]

* ADeadlyAffair:
** Season six episode "Compromising Positions": The victim of the killer's career was the man that impregnated his wife. When talking to the wife Reid shows her pictures of male crime victims and, despite Rossi and Hotch's scepticism, she turns on her husband when she sees the photo of the man who fathered her child.
** Season ten episode "The Witness" has Charlie Senarak go after the man his wife was sleeping with. When he confronts the man, a struggle ensues, and Senarak kills the man. The man's half brother, anti government terrorist Mitchell Crossford, blackmails Senarak with this knowledge and tries to frame him for a sarin gas attack.
** During season twelve Reid is sent to prison for a crime he did not commit. There he meets Calvin Shaw, a former FBI Agent who murdered his confidential informant. He claims that she was {{blackmail}}ing him, but he actually was having an affair with her and killed her to prevent her from speaking and to destroy evidence of her pregnancy.
* ''Series/DiagnosisMurder'': In one episode a woman kills her lover in a fit of rage after learning he's been unfaithful.

* AccidentalAimingSkills: Invoked in "L.D.S.K." when Reid claims, after shooting an [=Un=]Sub in the head, that he was "aiming for his leg." Reid recently failed his gun test, so it would be easy to believe this explanation... Except that Reid was lying just a few feet away from the [=Un=]Sub at the time, and it had been previously established that anything less than a [[BoomHeadshot headshot]] would probably result in the deaths of half the people in the room. Reid was making his first joke of the series, and fittingly, it was a morbid and obscure one.
** The joke is also a call back to the opening of the episode when Reid was practicing with Hotch for the not-yet-failed test and aims for the target's head but hits the groin.
*** Potentially a ShoutOut as well, since Reid is a sci-fi fan. ''Criminal Minds'' began three years after ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' first aired.
