CRIMINAL MINDS Season 9 - 904. To Bear Witness - Review

This episode of Criminal Minds was written by Erica Messer, and introduces the new Section Chief played by Esai Morales to the show. The story revolves around a case of sibling rivalry that has gone horribly wrong. The story itself was just okay. It was painfully slow at times and I wanted to fast forward through some parts of it. What I did like about the episode was the team profiling. This season has done a great job with the team solving the cases with actual profiling, instead of "lets see how creepy we can make the unsub and his or her crimes show" episodes that we have had to endure the past couple of season. I am glad the team is back to being active in solving the cases through profiling and relying less on Garcia to produce names from the computer at the end of the episode. I am very happy to see that aspect of the show back because I missed it very much.

As far as introducing the new Section Chief, hummm... I can't really think of anything positive to say about it. I don't have a problem with the new chief, (although Erin Strauss was one of my favs and I will miss her very much) but the story introducing him was almost laughable in my opinion. I get they can't talk about open cases, sure I can buy that no problem, but to act like they don't know each other after they met in public to run and have breakfast is juvenile and silly. To me it feels like trying to create drama when none exists. It would have been way more interesting if JJ had actually had an affair with him. I guess it is impossible for anyone to see them together in public because they have a cloak of invisibility. HUGE EYE ROLL. Oh yes and lets not forget the whispers around the "Round Table" and the elevator. Oh wait, Rossi might think something is up because they forgot to push a button! OH NO, they do know each other. OH MY GOD NO! Wait and he wanted to meet up to run again... LOL Stop all this drama, is killing me!

All in all it was an okay episode. The team profiling was terrific, and I am glad to have it back. The ep would have been much more enjoyable without all the absurd drama concerning the new Section Chief . I look forward to the team being back on track and the stories that get resolved by the team, not Garcia on her computer, after watching thirty minutes of "how creepy can we make this new unsub"... If I wanted to watch American Horror Story I would. Welcome Back Criminal Minds, I have missed you.


CRIMINAL MINDS Season 9 - 905. Route 66 - Thomas Gibson Interview with TVLine

By Matt Webb Mitovich

Time does not in fact heal all wounds, Aaron Hotchner will discover tonight on Criminal Minds (CBS, 9/8c).

As the hour opens, Hotch is “working long hours, like he always does, and presenting a case when he collapses” in front of his colleagues, Thomas Gibson tells TVLine. The cause: Internal bleeding from the scar tissue of the stabbings he suffered years ago at the hand of The Reaper aka George Foyet.

During surgery, Hotch experiences vivid visions of two important people from his past: his wife Haley (played again by Meredith Monroe), who was a Reaper victims, and Foyet himself (C. Thomas Howell). Here, Gibson previews the introspective storyline and the sobering lesson Hotch still has to learn...

CRIMINAL MINDS Season 9 - 905. Route 66 - Tomas Gibson's Interview with TVGuide

by Joyce Eng

Hotch will see dead people on Wednesday's Criminal Minds but Thomas Gibson won't be watching — at least for now.

"It may be a little tough for me to watch with Haley and Foyet returning. It will be a while before I do," Gibson tells "Plus, I don't know how many people want to see the guy who killed their wife again!"

He may not want to, but Hotch will come face-to-face with George "The Reaper" Foyet (C. Thomas Howell) again on Wednesday's episode (9/8c, CBS), along with his late wife Haley (Meredith Monroe), whom, of course, The Reaper killed in the show's 100th episode before Hotch beat him to death. After collapsing at work due to...
