Criminal Minds returned tonight with their first episode of 2013; The peculiarly titled “Zugzwang”. Not only was this one of the best episodes of the season, but a powerful and gut-wrenching episode for everybody’s favorite character: Reid.
We kick off tonight’s episode with a very strange dream sequence involving Reid marrying his mystery woman, with the whole BAU team in attendance no less! It’s very rare for this show to have such different scenes visually, so it’s always nice when we have something that feels new. Well Spencer quickly wakes up and takes a nice walk to a nearby pay phone to talk to his mystery lady, and he finds out that she’s been kidnapped!
