From Season 6 it did become hit and miss, with the odd gem, but a lot of average episodes and some stinkers. Season 12 so far has been nowhere near as bad as feared, all things considered with its significant changes and troubled behind the scenes. Also on the team are Emily Prentiss, the daughter of an ambassador and a surprise addition that neither Hotchner or Gideon signed off on; Derek Morgan, an expert in obsessional crimes; Dr. Acting across the board ranges from very good to great, Gubler and Lynch taking the acting honours.

Reid had received professional advice that his mother should be in a facility both for her and his own good, but it may be news from a more caring rather than clinical voice which may carry more weight with him. The unsub's motive is incredibly flimsy and one of the most confusing things about the episode. The music is moody in the haunting and melancholic sense and fits well, without either enhancing or distracting from it. With that being said, Reid's subplot is far more memorable than the case and is really quite wonderfully done, it was often very moving and tackled a very difficult subject with sensitivity and tact. In conclusion, loved Reid's subplot but the case left me underwhelmed. Written by In its prime Seasons 1-5, with Season 4 to me being the best and most consistent season with a lot of classic episodes and even the weakest episodes being far from awful 'Criminal Minds' was one of my favourite shows.
He is utilised brilliantly, even if his subplot with his mother takes up a little too much time of the episode. One thing that immediately stands out is that Reid is back after being sorely missed in the previous two episodes. While the team work cohesively and solve the case without baseless conclusion jumping or Garcia providing too conveniently the answers, one can't help thinking that they take too much of a back-seat. He is called back home from the office while the rest of the team heads off on their next case. The script is good in Reid's subplot but patchy with the case. It isn't until the team is in the air that they learn that Diana is no longer in the Houston facility, but that she is now living with Reid, as the trial drug was not having the intended effect. Rossi has the most screen time but some of the rest seem underused.
This cannot be said for Walker who is still rather bland and doesn't gel yet. David Rossi comes out of retirement to help the the Behavioral Analysis Unit lead by Aaron Hotchner, a family man who's able to gain people's trust and unlock their secrets. Also, Reid decides to take his mother out of a clinical study early to bring her home with him. Visually, the episode is very well shot and lit and is overall stylish, gritty, classy and atmospheric.

Reid has returned from Houston, where he was visiting his mother who is in a new facility on an experimental drug program. .
There is a complete lack of tension and suspense as well, and creepiness is sacrificed by too much weirdness going on. Eric Henry impresses too as Bryce. Nothing exceptional yet but no low-points either. Criminal Minds Season 12 Episodes. Regardless, he makes himself available to the team, who are in the Tampa, Florida area where two individual deaths have occurred, both now considered murders, the two tied together by ink drawings on the inner arms of the victims, the second victim's whose has one more stroke of the pen than the first.
