Also, I usually really like Virgil Williams' work, but I am dissapoint
that, in what seems to me a very un-Criminal-Minds
-ish element, the prostitutes in "The Apprentice" were treated as disposable, while the nice girl with a job in a pet store got rescued. And none of the women demonstrated the kind of agency I'm used to seeing in the show.
This season is not standing out for me, so far. The gore level seems to be higher, and the humaneness/agency seems to be lacking.
