); Garcia putting herself in Hotch's shoes by imagining herself in a really good suit; Prentiss' new boyfriend, Sergio - "the perfect man.He doesn't hog the covers, and he poops in a box."; and Hotch's ability to see through Emily's lies, even those that the FBI psychologist didn't detect.
The plot - or plots, if you may - were yet another element that got me all excited.
As you can imagine, one has high expectations from their favorite procedural show when it hits 150 and this one didn't let me down one bit, not even the focus on Prentiss and her issues with faking her death and all.
It was bound to be revisited at some point and I actually love the more personal focus of this season.
But I won't dwell on that and jump right into the case, which was again very unique.
Not only was it about a serial rapist - when this show usually handled murders and such, but the originality came from two directions.
The first one is the Un Sub's modus operandi, in which he was drugging the victims with cigarettes, using piano wires to tie them and was raping them while playing some piano ballad for the entire time (song that was different with each victim - and I will never be able to listen to "Total Eclipse of the Heart" with the same pleasure ever again); the second, the Un Sub having a copycat that was raping the Piano Man's victims, and actually setting this copycat up to take the fall for him.Also an original element - the BAU revisiting an old case where they didn't catch the Un Sub (definitely something new for them).Favorite moments: Reid's lesson about how the music we listen to when we're 14 sticks with us forever (so that's why I still love glam metal!The BAU team searches for a serial rapist in Houston known as "The Piano Man", who has resurfaced and is assaulting his previous victims.Also, Prentiss tries to come to terms with her trauma from last year and with rejoining the team.: Our musical experiences imprint on us.Our hormonal surges as teenagers may make the choices seem more personal and passionate, and later on in life we might experiment with other musical selections.
