Well, it's a brand new year, and that means new Criminal Minds! After one long month without my team, after arms full of gifts and gorging on too many sweets, they are back, and I wish I could say better than ever. What I have to say instead, though, is that after so long without an episode, I wish they would have come back with one a little punchier than this. This is the sort of episode that works well as a breather between bigger, more explosive episodes. Soul Mates was slow, and while slow is not always bad (and I should say, there was nothing bad about this episode necessarily), it's not the sort of thing to get one excited for the rest of the season to come.
