'Criminal Minds' 9x18 'Rabid': BAU fitness

Reid: “But he has really good abs.”

“Rabid” is tonight’s episode of “Criminal Minds.” This article contains spoilers, so beware! To review the last case file, click here. “Criminal Minds” airs Wednesday nights at 8 on CBS (KHOU).

The writers make you genuinely concerned for the woman at the beginning when that guy keeps staring at her and follows her. As a woman, that is something I fear happening. It was a nice fake out that the guy wasn’t the unsub and/or that the girl isn’t the one who ended up dying. Speaking of the unsub, the writers don’t actually show his face until the team identifies him. There are still scenes featuring the unsub and what he is doing to his victims, but those scenes don’t give anything away. They build on the intrigue of the case. What did you think of the case?

This is a small thing, but the fact that Reid is involved in the unsub takedown is fantastic. Typically the BAU team member who finds the unsub seems to be either Morgan or JJ or both of them, seeing as how the writers keep portraying them as the “bad ass” characters on the team. It is fantastic to see Reid get in there and be in a scuffle with the unsub. He gets to do some damage, and he also get his ass kicked. Did you enjoy seeing Reid take on a little bit more physical role?

Garcia and Reid have been prepping for a field test. This is a hilarious storyline. It brings together two members of the team who are always entertaining when paired up, but they never get any one on one time. Plus, they are not the most athletic team members, so it just makes things funnier. Their scenes not only bookended the episode, but the writers included little moments throughout the episode. Morgan picks up on both Garcia and Reid acting strangely. It would have been great if another team member was with Morgan when he walked in and saw Reid stretching. Did you enjoy the fitness test storyline?
