Deaths on Criminal Minds are almost always innovative and interesting - and rarely predictable.
So far we've had victims whose legs were sawn off; eyes plucked out, and limbs dislocated.
This week's installment gave us a woman who was pressed to death, and the threat of a woman and her child being burnt at the stake. Nothing the least bit "normal" about any of them. Although in fairness, we did have one episode this season involving death by gunshot... so not all murders are as wildly inventive as the ones here.
Perhaps "inventive" isn't the right word, though, as all of these methods have been used before, albeit in a different age.
