CRIMINAL MINDS “Sense Memory” Review

CRIMINAL MINDS "Sense Memory" Season 6 Episode 14 – An unregistered taxi driver is prowling the streets of LA in search of a woman with a natural scent. He is delusional; he likes drowning his victims in methanol and he likes taking a square slip of skin from the soles of their feet. Meanwhile, Prentiss has some demons from her past reappearing in her life.

This was a tightly plotted episode written by Randy Huggins. Instead of rushing headlong into Prentiss’ past, the show is slowing gliding in, leaving the viewers desperate for more. The opening scene where she lays booby traps around her house and seats herself, gun fully loaded, at the end of the hall, was chilling. I love the fact that the show is taking its time, giving us small gems to ponder over-the blacked out file, the purple flower, the four leaf clover tattoo-instead of rushing into an overloaded, unemotional plot. I also liked that Prentiss moved out of her house because, as her booby traps show, she is a smart and therefore formidable heroine, which of course means that whoever she feels threatened by must be a pretty scary, pretty clever villain. The scene between Prentiss and Morgan in the taxi was also very good. I like that he, as a top notch member of the BAU, is picking up on her unease, but whatever danger she is in is so top secret that she cannot reveal anything to him. Read More...
