Review - Criminal Minds Season 5 Episode 8 Outfoxed

Wow, very interesting episode, and it set up the 100th episode which looks to be very emotional and explosive episode. Criminal Minds is one of those shows that there really isn't much to talk about; you really have to watch the show to get the essence of it.

Hotch and Emily spent the majority at the prison with a serial killer from season 1 episode 7. I was confused why the people in charge decided to bring back a character from so long ago. The episode aired in 2005, so who actually remembered him? Anyways, we got a little bit of recap as they tried to discover his secret. It was a tad disturbing seeing Emily flirt with the Fox, and Paget Brewster did a great job, but that's part of Criminal Minds - creepiness.

The rest of the case was pretty good with multiple roadblocks until Reid broke it open, remembering.a fact about brains. The killer turned out to be a woman who had experienced trauma as a child. This episode balanced the scenes of rest of the team with the scenes of the prison well so we had great slow paced scenes mixed in with faster paced scenes.

Score: 9.1/10
