SPOILERS after the Break. Do NOT click if you don’t want to know who the unsubs are.

In “The Gathering”, the teacher of a fantasy mystery writing class is using his/her student’s ideas to commit murders. I think that story has been done on a lot of shows before— Monk comes to mind— with the tomato soup murder.

In “Pay It Forward”, people involved in a cover up of a rape are being targeted. The rape victim never got over it and her husband is killing people that he believes were involved.

In “Alchemy” I think the unsub is female. It is likely she uses poison. At some point an elderly woman who cackles madly is hallucinated by either the unsub or her victims.

In “Nanny Dearest” the nanny (tentatively named Gina Mendes) and 1-year old girl (tentatively named Phoebe) are kidnapped and Gina is tortured in front of the child. This episode is currently in casting process.

In “#6” Two African American brothers videotape themselves stealing a car, which ends up having a couple tied up in the trunk. But that is just for the teaser. Not sure on the plot.

In “Brother’s Hotchner” Sean Hotchner is framed/setup/suspected of murder. Obviously Hotch goes to help him.

In the season finale, it will be a cliffhanger and the Replicator arc will NOT be resolved. They’ve decided to carry it through to the next season.
