I think the writers wrote Lindsey pretty realistically. I was an abused child and I survived. That is exactly how I responded. Lindsey taunted him because she knew that it would keep her alive. Sometimes, I taunted my abusers and sometimes I was quiet. You never show any fear. Even if they hurt or kill you: you remain defiant until the end. That way, even in death, you still win. Been there, done that.
Her father's reaction was really well written too. I've seen people argue that he shouldn't have shot them. In perfect world he shouldn't have to. I almost had to pull the trigger on my own mother to keep myself and my siblings safe. I would have done it too and faced whatever punishment if it meant that they would be alive and free. Thankfully, I was rescued by my father before I had to make that decision.
Yes, the bad guy could have gone to jail, but then he was the only living witness to see Jack face to face besides our heroes. And more importantly, he knows about Lindsey. Some of Jack's old "friends" could have heard about it from him in prison and tracked them down. Lindsey would have been slaughtered. To let him live would have been a death sentence.
He also could have been released due to legal issues or on good behavior and told about them. Then, our young unsub could have also escalated and become even more of a monster. Jack, being what he once was, knew that if that man walked then other women would be in danger and he could come after his own daughter again.
My abusers aren't in jail. I still sleep with weapons waiting for them to return. After that I went through, I would have done the same thing if I were in Jack's shoes. I would have then faced whatever punishment was dealt to me as long as my child was safe. If I was Lindsey, then I would have begged my father to do the same thing. Harsh, but at least I and other women would be alive.

thank you writers for not doing the right thing crap you had Reid blubbering about, just because he's Reid doesn't make him know everything about every father and daughter out there. if anything I was hoping that Jack Vaughan would shoot Reid to shut him up. This guy and his friends just kidnapped two girls kill one, then kill one of the rapists because things had gotten out of hand. He is now about to rape and kill Lindsey when her father shows up, the guy got lucky Reid was there so he got a quick death. I liked the character of Jack Vaughan and his daughter and I'd like to see them again if they are not written as victims. I'm a father and am happy I have a son because if I had a daughter I would have done exactly what Katie's father did telling Jack Vaughan about the kids and I probably would have done what Jack Vaughan did too. I don't know what real cops are like but I don't know why they have to write stories where they try harder to catch a victim who goes after the killer then the killer who was some one like Charles Manson, Bundy etc.

I have to admit; I loved how they just jumped right into the Crime Scene. Reid got some great air time but it was truly nice to see how the entire team got good air time! This episode bumps up into one of my favorites; it was very well done.
What blew my mind was that when Lindsey got up and shut off the water, the unsub approached her and taunted her; claimed she didn't know him. But he kept telling her to shut up and she'd never spoken a word! But my favorite scene was when Rossi, Morgan and Reid drew their guns on the US Marshall. I loved that Reid is more comfortable holding his gun; he doesn't look awkward with it anymore and he held it like the other two did.
It was a great dynamic watching Hotch and Prentiss pairing up in the beginning. They worked off each other and pieced things together while standing in front of the movie theater. And later when Prentiss kicked some door butt and then they cut to Rossi going in, that was really great. The Morgan walking up the stairs and they flashing to Hotch doing it; it was very well done.
The scene where Hotch and Prentiss talked to the 3rd unsub, Doug Silverman's dad had my heart in my throat. You could see the father knew what they were going to tell him and the eye contact between the father and Hotch.... Same as with the scene when the parents had to hear the phone call.
The scenes with the 2 dads was also riveting. Comforting one another and then when Katie's dad went to Jack to ask him if he was still capable of doing what he did. You knew what he was asking and it took a lot for him to do that and call on friendship to ask it of him.
Just an amazing episode.

According to TV.com, and a few other places, this new episode, "3rd Life" is scheduled to air on Wednesday, January 9th!! Let's hope so.... although once they air these last 2 episodes, not that it's bad, but we'll have nothing new to look forward to for months. If the writer's strike doesn't end in the next month or two, we'll have nothing until September. That's a long time to wait for our crime fighting heroes to come back!
