I know for most people, Reid is their favourite character in Criminal Minds. He isn’t mine but I did miss him whilst he was gone and what an episode for him to come back!
I think they cast the perfect actress to play Cat – 9 parts creepy and sadistic and 1 part vulnerable. It was a real battle of minds between her and Reid and the interplay of the tension in the restaurant and the flashbacks with Reid telling her how they managed to catch her was really gripping.
I haven’t been particularly wowed by the “contract killers” plot arc and I’m glad it’s over – and even more glad that it ended with a really strong episode.
