I understand having a negative reaction to some of the overplayed, lazy stereotypes in both canon and fandom portrayals of Reid, and I often share the feeling, but…
The whole point of Reid is that he thinks and behaves in ways that most of society doesn’t consider normal, and that he has an…
I think Reid’s character is kind of inconsistent. If he’s such a genius and constantly reads so many books and newspapers, he’d be hard pressed not to make a connection to pop culture references as massive as Twilight or Lady Gaga. I know they want to make him seem like a nutty professor who’s got his nose stuck in a book from the 15th century all the time, but it would be part of his job as a profiler to keep up to date on current events. It would make more sense that an unsub is obsessed with Twilight than some obscure scholarly text from the Renaissance, or even the more minute parts of the Bible, based on the lack of exposure any given person would have to those things. I absolutely love Reid’s character, and I know they have to do something to show that he’s not wired like the rest of us, but I do think sometimes the writers do his character a disservice by making him only know “smart people stuff”.
All this because he was jealous and butt hurt over losing out on the job that Blake got…??!?
If the unsub had been Gideon the story line would’ve been so much better imho… and much more scary; it’ll imply that ANY one of the team could end up being a serial killer because of what they’ve seen.
Just feel like this was a wasted opportunity? idk
Gideon! Wow, that literally just made me gasp aloud. That would have been insane! I’m going to have to ponder that…
Ignoring fame was my rebellion, in a funny way. I was insistent on being normal and doing normal things. It probably wasn’t advisable to go to college in America and room with a complete stranger. And it probably wasn’t wise to share a bathroom with eight other people in a coed dorm. Looking back, that was crazy.
