Episode 8.18 "Restoration"
Or, also known as "Profiler, Profiled, Part 2", with many of the same characters from that episode reappearing this week.
Last time we saw them, we watched in horror as Derek Morgan was falsely accused of murder by Stan Gordinski (Skipp Sudduth), who was on a witch hunt and missed who the real criminal was, Morgan's other tormentor, child molester Carl Buford (Julius Tennon). This week, Gordinski and Morgan show us that everything is okay by getting together for ice cream and singing Kumbaya over a campfire...or at least they will after they have to team up to catch a baddie targeting middle-aged men in Morgan's old stomping grounds. Can Morgan and Gordinski patch their differences and work together? How will Morgan, faced with the memories of his past, overcome his horrors in order to help solve the case? Will Reid shoot another bottle rocket and hit Alex Blake in the head and maybe give her a pulse?
...and, the ultimate question of them all: how low will CM's trolling for attention and ratings go tonight? Seriously, can anyone think of another reason why the writers wanted to reprise one of the most beloved episodes in CM's history? We've already had the "Broken Mirror" rip-off in "All That Remains", Breen Frazier has already admitted he thought nothing except "Emmy" when he wrote "Zugzwang" and the awkward attempt at message-sending in "Broken". Not to mention Al!! That! *Gorn*! Hopefully I'm wrong and this won't ruin what is my own personal favourite episode, but the writers haven't given me much hope this season that they can get a big episode "right".
We'll see this week.

Episode 8.16 "Carbon Copy"
After months of not having the slightest clue about who The Replicator is (due, mostly, to the fact that the team hasn't actually investigated him yet), tonight we're told that The Replicator comes out of the woodwork.
According to the promo, we see JJ asking the cryptic question concerning the UnSub: "Which one of us is next?"
Next for what? An attack? A robbery? Being forced to wear matching socks?
(I know the promo *really* tried to play it like someone could die, but do you *really* think something catastrophic is going to happen to a member of this team?)
What we do know is that this week, the team gets a break in their case against The Replicator with a lead in Philadelphia, telling us that the hunt- finally- is on for this guy. Scott Grimes ("ER", "Party of Five") guest stars, with Brian Appel returning to play Anderson (maybe we'll learn his first name or what, exactly, he does) and Jayne Atkinson playing the once mean but now suddenly compassionate Erin Strauss.
This week promises to be explosive...maybe even literally.
Just a programming note, for anyone reading in Canada: the episode tonight is on at 9 on CTV, not 10, so adjust your PVR's and your couch schedules accordingly.

Episode 8.15 "Broken"
This week we have people with their timing all off.
...and we get...The Guy.
Okay, first things first. The BAU heads to Austin, Texas, home of the legendary South by Southwest music festival, where people are found with their watches set incorrectly. What does that mean? Could that be a clue to catching this week's killer?
If that wasn't enough (wait, there's more? Yes, there is!)...
This episode promises to finally introduce us to that strange guy haunting the team this season...THE REPLICATOR (cue "Phantom of the Opera" music with Dracula-like cackling). We won't know how far he *will* get in his pursuit, but we know, this week, he gets...CLOSER.

There was an episode that involved Reid and Morgan trapped inside an elevator and I do not know which episode it was, maybe someone here knows? I THINK it was in season 3
