Main Characters in this Episode

Jason Gideon: When did his demeanor change?
Victim: After I refused to go to his car. He grabbed my arm so hard, I thought that it would break. I don't know, I've been watching the news about all these women being abducted. And... I just started screaming.
Jason Gideon: You trusted your instincts. Because of that, you're still alive.
Derek Morgan: [Reading from the paper] They were our daughters, sisters, mothers and friends.
Jason Gideon: They have every right to be remembered and memorialized.
Dr. Spencer Reid: They didn't mention the shooter.
Aaron Hotchner: He was a nobody who wanted to be somebody by killing people, and they didn't give him that. Good.

- Goof (plot holes): SPOILER: The ad shown when Reid figures out how the Mill Creek Killer and Hollow Man communicate is the same one he writes later to catch Mill Creek.
