Bookend Quotes Edit
- Spencer Reid: Mildred Lisette Norman wrote, "Anything you cannot relinquish, when it has outlived its usefulness, possesses you. And in this materialistic age, a great many of us are possessed by our possessions."
- Spencer Reid: Isaac Asimov wrote, "In life, unlike chess, the game continues after checkmate."
- The title is a reference to the uncanny valley, a hypothesis in the fields of robotics and 3D animation. It postulates that there comes a point when human replicas act and look so similar to real humans that the latter becomes uncomfortable around the former. The term refers to a graph that shows how human feelings of familiarity towards anthropomorphic robots or robotic parts (including prostethics) becomes lower the more life-like they seem. The use of it as a title refers to the unsub's obsession with dolls.
