From "Criminal Minds: Epilogue (#7.6)"
Dr. Spencer Reid
I'm a man of science. I didn't know how to deal with it. There's no quantifiable proof that God exists, and yet, in that moment I was faced with something that I couldn't explain. I still can't.

What if this UnSub has had a similar experience and this is his way of looking for answers?
If that's the case, why kill Jake Shepherd? Why not just talk to him?
He wanted to see if he had the same experience as before.
Once isn't enough?
Not if Jake didn't see the same thing the UnSub did. He wants to know if the experience can change. I can relate to that. Reid felt a warmth and saw a light. When I coded in the ambulance, all I felt was cold and darkness. And I would like to think that there's a different future waiting for me.
