  • An unsub with a fascination for brains…? Could this be a Reid-heavy episode we’re looking at? In that case, I’m all in! This could be fun, gory, and all kinds of awesome. ;)

  • To me, he will always be Sark. But he is a great actor and popping up EVERYWHERE these days. Someone better give him his own show! Actually I would LOVE to see him in a show co-starring Zeljko Ivanek. That would be one helluva show.
