I'm so glad that it sounds like they are not going to do another season long unsu for season 9, bc imo the one they did for season 8 wasn't executed all that well.
I hope we get to see familiar UnSubs/ cases pre season 6 before most of these writers started.I can't remember many UnSubs who got away in earlier seasons other than the Fox and the Romanian gypsies (S4), but I'm sure there were a few. I'd love to see them go back to the cannibal case in Lucky season 3, it was only one episode which led into Garcia, but I think that was one of the best creepy UnSubs the show has had. It was such a great episode, I'd love for it to be mentioned... weird, I know, but it stands out in my mind.
* led into Garcia being shot :S
Don't forget the creepy photographer they 'cleared' in one episode-- I forget which one, but Seaver was involved I think. "Out of the Light" was it? Not to mention the kidnapper who was hiding out on the Appilacian trail. he got away...
"Lucky" was unique in that it was able to shock the hell out of the audience at the end without resorting to graphic scenes.Unfortunately I have my doubts as to whether or not these current crop of CM writers would ever be able to pull something like that off. Of course now I'd be very happy if next season these writers would prove me wrong.
The Fox never got away. He was arrested at the end of episode 1.7 and he was still in prison at the end of episode 5.8.Apart from the kidnapper from "Into the Woods" it would be interesting to see any psychotic kid they arrested through the years that could potentially have been released from prison/psychiatric facility early and has become even more psychotic, like the kid from "A Shade of Gray" (4.21) or the one on "Safe Haven" (6.5).LJ
The one in Safe haven would be interesting because he so manipulated everyone and the taunt he gave Morgan when Morgan arrested him. How would Morgan react if that kid was back on the street and still killing people?I like the idea of going back to old cases and hopefully close them.Cannot wait for season 9!
I've been watching a marathon today and there were two episodes that I think could have return episodes :1. Where the dad was using his son to lure woman and then he would take them home to torture them, etc. It was the one where Emily was leaving, Hotch was transferring and Reid finds Gideon's letter in the cabin. I was thinking the little boy was about 8-10 and it was 6-7 years ago....so he could be older and have his own issues.2. The one where the guy has mental issues and sees 3 people who encourage him to kill. A woman and two men...and in the end he gets caught and goes to a mental hospital. The last we see of him, the doctor tells him they did shock therapy and it worked. Then we see him in his room and the 3 hallucinations/people are back. He could get released as cured and strike again.....
