* To anyone who has family that survived war, it's hard not to watch this episode and not remember the struggles and challenges that they have to contend with. Its a saddening, and sobering reminder of the price those in the military pays in serving there country.

* While investigating murders in a prison, the team notices an inmate named Devon White is missing, who is linked in some way to the murders. To find out more they questioned the inmate named Sam who worked with him in the library. They bonded quickly, Devon even stole a book for him after Sam had his taken away by guards, but sadly everything went downhill when [[spoiler: Two corrupt security guards arrive, making an underground fight club, causing Devon to be killed and covered up by said guards. Sam misses Devon, reading the book he gave him and the note left for him. After they find the murders and Devon's skull, Rossi gives Sam's books back. Sam is on the verge of tears. Coupled with sad music and great acting, this is amazingly bittersweet.]]

* In "Sick Day" the team was only able to save two of the three victims that the unsub kidnapped for his endgame. The mother's reaction of losing her daughter and JJ having to deal with the grief and trauma of unable to save all of three them is heartbreaking.

The mother's reaction of losing her daughter and JJ having to deal with the grief and trauma of being unable to save all of three them is heartbreaking. heartbreaking.]]
* In "In the Dark", the team dealt with [[TheWoobie an absolute Woobie]] of an UnSub. [[spoiler: As a child, he was abused by his father and always had to be taken along to brothels and drug dens, where he was exposed to a lifestyle of sex and drugs. At one brothel, he was molested by a prostitute, his father didn't care, and worse, it didn't seem like anyone was prosecuted for it. As an adult, he started killing {{Asshole Victim}}s who reminded him of said father, but because he sleepwalks, he unknowingly continues killing at night to seek more of the release he gets from murdering. The worst part is that these victims are completely innocent people who were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. When the UnSub realizes this, he does all he can to stay awake, only to fail. By the time he's arrested by the BAU, he breaks down horribly, especially after learning how many people he killed. Considering how pretty much everything in his life went wrong, you'd feel nothing but sorrow for this guy.]]

** That whole episode was a huge TearJearker (with heaping helpings of [[NightmareFuel nightmare]] and NauseaFuel as well). Just the fact that Monica never gave up looking for Hope only to learn that she's dead. And then there's the circumstances of Hope's death. She was kidnapped, raised by said kidnapper, when she hit her teens, he started raping her with the intention of getting her pregnant, and when she did get pregnant, she killed herself to escape the misery and the shame. Then there's the scene where Monica finds Hope's mummified body. *cries*

*** Also Hope's childhood friend, who blames herself for what happened (not helped by the fact that the Unsub left her a note thanking her). As if all that wasn't enough, the Unsub truly believed to be in love with Hope. Monica having to be told by the Unsub how her daughter was kidnapped, seeing the place where she had to live with him and then learning of her pregnancy and suicide...

** Hotch's interactions with Evan Abbey. He was able to relate to him as an absent father who works for the government in some way. Even more tragic when Hotch is informed that Evan is dying from cancer, causing him to relate more when his own father was suffering in the same way. [[spoiler:Not to mention Hotch being forced to watch the benzene fire, knowing that the man he's related to so much performed a HeroicSacrifice and a MurderSuicide.]]

!!General
* Anytime a victim whose only crime is that they were the wrong place in the wrong time and/or who fit the killer's type who didn't do anything majorly wrong who gets murdered by the killer of the week. A victim could be minding their own business and living a normal life only to be brutally killed in sometimes cruel ways. It is heartwreching even more if they have left behind family and friends who now have to deal with losing their love ones in such a brutal and cruel way, especially if they hoped that they were still alive.
