I'm excited for the new season. This should be an interesting storyline and it will explain more of Rossi's character, which, sadly, we don't know a lot about.

She was utterly brilliant on JAG. My parents were college professors, so I know one when I see one. She was totally believeable. I'm looking forward to this character.

Criminal Minds Quotes

Hotch: A sniper can wait up to 72 hours without sleeping.
Mays: Seriously?
Rossi: That's part of their training. They can stay awake for 72 hours and remain completely focused on their target.
Mays: How?
Hotch: By using a mental exercise called "fantasy integration". A sniper creates a scenarios involving a target that keeps that person at the forefront of their mind.
Morgan: Often they'll imagine a place where they're with the target, doing something together that takes time. For example, building a car.
JJ: For some, the fantasy begins the minute they're assigned a target. Then nothing will distract them.
