The Angel Maker - S4-E2

Other mistake: At the start, it's nighttime when the unsub hides in the house of the soon-to-be victim who goes to sleep when her alarm clock reads 'Tue 11:06', and then we see the time morph to 'Tue 1:13' when the victim is sound asleep, before the unsub comes out of the closet to kill her. However, the time on the clock should actually read 'Wed 1:13'.

Mayhem - S4-E1

Factual error: Morgan is following a suspect into the subway tunnels. As he is coming around a corner, you can see the tracks behind Morgan. The tracks are three straight pieces of track making a corner. There is no way a train can make a corner on straight tracks. There should have been curved tracks.

Memoriam - S4-E7

Character mistake: When Reid is visiting his mother, playing Scrabble, he has eight tiles on his rack (ROLOAWAD), but a player can only have seven tiles at a time.

Demonology - S4-E17

Other mistake: Prentiss pulls up to a bar and the shot shows her looking out of the car window. "BAR" is shown reflected in red on the car window, but it is readable from left to right under the closeup of Prentiss's face when we see her. The reflection of "BAR" should have been backwards since it's a reflection of the sign on the building.

The Angel Maker - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: There's a clock on the first victim's night stand. When she goes to bed, it's Tuesday, 11:06. When the murder happens a couple of hours later, it's still Tuesday, 1:13.

The Big Wheel - S4-E22

Other mistake: When Morgan calls Garcia to have her search for Vincent, Prentiss jumps in saying he is a mentor. However Morgan had just learned this and didn't mention it on the call.

Brothers in Arms - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: When Reid is talking there's a big crack at the top of the window that might be a problem since they're supposed to be flying. Then a few seconds later they cut back to him and it's filled with putty. (00:05:00 - 00:06:00)

House on Fire - S4-E19

Audio problem: When Garcia is talking about the cross-examination she's done and how she should be praised for how quickly she'd done it, she crosses the room away from the computers (and the webcam she's shown through) to a bulletin board. While she's walking away, her voice gets fainter, and then becomes louder again when she returns, as though she were getting further and then closer again to a microphone. However, she is wearing a headset with a microphone - the volume wouldn't have changed. (00:13:15)

Zoe's Reprise - S4-E15

Visible crew/equipment: After Prentiss and Morgan catch Eric and his girlfriend in the park it cuts to Prentiss and the girlfriend in the interrogation room, and as the camera tracks backward from the door's window we can see a nice reflection of the moving camera and also a crew member standing behind Hotchner.

Zoe's Reprise - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: When Rossi is in Zoe's bedroom the camera pans the room and we see the laptop on the desk with nothing on its lid, but in the closeup suddenly there's a large embroidered flower sticker on the laptop's lid, which vanishes again when Rossi lifts the lid.

Cold Comfort - S4-E14

Other mistake: Evergreen State University in Olympia Washington should be The Evergreen State College (they aren't a university). The transcript for Evergreen (assuming they meant the real college) is also wrong in every way: -They said the guy Ivan was expelled, but the transcript lists a B.A. awarded in June of 1968? - Evergreen has always used a narrative evaluation so there are no grades. There shouldn't be numbers or averages. -There are no majors - you get a B.A. or a B.S. -They don't have classic course names like "Philosophy 101" or "History." -The school was founded in 1967 - he couldn't have taken those classes that are listed from 1964 - 1967. (00:18:50)

Extreme Aggressor - S1-E1

Agent Hotchner: This is Special Agent Dr. Reid.
Man: You look too young to have gone to medical school.
Agent Reid: They are PhD's. Three of them.
Man: What, are you a genius or something?
Agent Reid: I don't believe that intelligence can be accurately quantified, but I do have an IQ of 187, an eidetic memory, can read 20,000 words per minute...yes, I'm a genius.

Show generally

Question: I never saw the whole episode, only near the end of it twice. The episode was about a boy about 10 or 11 who took a girl his age Into the Woods so he could kill her using a baseball bat. What was the name of this episode and what was the reason for him wanting to kill her?

Answer: "The Boogeyman", s02e06. spoiler alert: The kid is Jeffrey Charles and at that point he had already killed 3 other kids. Jefferey basically hated and resented other kids after his mother abandoned him and his father spent a lot of time with other children because of his job. Jeffery would lure kids Into the Woods and then beat them to death with his bat just because of hate, no particular "reason." The scene you're describing, Jefferey agrees to walk Tracy home when her "buddy" leaves her (at this point the FBI announced there's a serial killer on the loose and kids should walk with a buddy). Jeffrey gets mad at Tracy for walking too slow and for complaining, and he takes a swing at her, causing her to flee Into the Woods and have Jeffery chase her.
