!!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.

!!Season 11
* As awful as the UnSub was in "Inner Beauty", it's hard not to sympathize with him after learning [[spoiler: he was in love with a disfigured girl with anxiety and working to make her feel beautiful and confident. After helping build her up he brings her to a public place to help her with her anxiety, she feels as if everyone is staring and laughing at her. When he leaves to get their favorite wine for not two minutes, she has a panic attack, runs away and turns up dead two days later. Just imagine the sheer amount of guilt he could carry, for someone he was trying to help and love unconditionally.]]
** Danielle's crying for why she was staying sober for her little brother is also heartbreaking.

**This is where the start of Gideon's breakdown that leads to him leaving the BAU begins; his cabin, as he describes to Hotch, is his sanctuary - the one place that is completely isolated from his job, where he can get away from it. That all changes once the Fisher King [[spoiler:has an AssholeVictim's head delivered right to his front door.]] Gideon laments that now he has no safe haven.

** Also, when suspect Josh is told that while he had been locked up, the serial killer struck again, which means it's not him. Unfortunately, the victim [[spoiler: was his mother, his lone surviving relative]]. Kudos to [[GenerationKill Eric]] [[Series/TheKilling Ladin]] (Josh).

* Bit late to the party, but season three's "Seven Seconds" has a pretty major one when [[spoiler:they're trying to revive Katie Jacobs]]

* The entire last half of "The Big Wheel" is one big tearjerker. Especially when Vincent gives the speech to Stan [[spoiler: before dying]],and when Stan finds out that [[spoiler: Vincent was the one who killed his mother,]] and how innocent and caring Vincent really is. This becomes especially painful when you realize that Vincent was so traumatized by his mother's death that he was forced to relive it - to take on his father's role - over... and over... and over...

** And then you find out that the FramingNarrative has been Reid talking to [[spoiler: Amanda]], the whole time. Some time has past, and [[spoiler: she]] is clearly still keeping Adam locked away.

** The entire episode itself is one of the saddest.[[spoiler: The [[=UnSub=]] is one of the most tragic in the show, a grieving father who blames the doctor he's targeting for his son's death (his son was brain dead and on life support when he arrived). He tries to commit {{suicide by cop}}]]

* "100". All of it. Especially [[spoiler:THAT phone call, where Hotch listens to Foyet torturing his ex-wife and son, and as Foyet kills Haley]]. If you weren't crying then, you sure were when [[spoiler: Hotch gets to the house, finds Haley's body, and [[DespairEventHorizon beats Foyet to death with his own hands]], then sobs over Haley's body while Morgan holds him back]]. The entire episode seems to delight in ripping your heart out through your chest. May also cause OcularGushers.

* "Coda": for some reason, [[spoiler: Ali Sparks's breakdown over her husband's body]] was especially heart-wrenching. [[spoiler: Dead bodies]] are pretty common on this show, but this one just made this troper lose it.

** This is made a million times more touching simply because of how REAL it is. For anyone who's ever had a friend in danger you can't contact, or a missing person... It just hit the nail on the head so devastatingly perfectly. This Troper nearly had a hyperventilating nervous breakdown because of that little bit there. And she's still waving a flashlight.

* While they stop managed to stop the unsub in "Rabid" and managed to administer the cure to one of the victims before the rabies virus progressed too far, one of victims who managed to escape, was far too long and she eventually slipped into a coma and die, leaving behind a husband and two daughters.\

* Tamer than most other examples on the page, but it can be quite upsetting to see Paul Davies, AKA Dante, from "The Performer" break down in tears in his managers arms - and this is before he realises that the murders are linked to him in any way. Watching him spend the episode desperately trying and failing to keep up his celebrity alter ego and knowing that it's driving him to drinking and taking drugs until he can't even remember what he spends his nights doing makes you wonder about the mental states of real life celebrities. Davies even asks if he has to attend a party "as him", and the actors tone makes it clear that Dante isn't considered a character any more; he's a person who's taken over and completely ruined the life of a performer who used to genuinely enjoy their work
