This episode started out like most CRIMINAL MINDS episodes but in the second half it began to dodge and twist, evading viewer expectations, finding its own path. There was a little more emotional content than usual (not the artificial stuff regarding the team). In short: :thumbsup:
I can see that Gibson's one-note performance will get grating if he gets too much exposure. We need Montegna -- pronto!
CBS moved into the winnerís circle at 9 p.m. care of Criminal Minds, which scored a healthy 9.8/16 in the overnights. As predicted, the absence of Mandy Patinkin has not negatively impacted the series.
