About Criminal Minds TV Show
Members of the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) are hot on the trail of their final un-sub. "Criminal Minds" will wrap up its 15th and final season with a two-hour series finale on Wednesday, February 19th.
What is "Criminal Minds" about?
Here's what producers have said about the show: "Criminal Minds revolves around an elite team of FBI profilers who analyze the country's most twisted criminal minds, anticipating their next moves before they strike again. The Behavioral Analysis Unit's most experienced agent is David Rossi, founding member of the BAU, who is essential in helping the team solve new cases.
Other members include Special Agent Emily Prentiss, the daughter of high-powered diplomats who returns to the team after being the head profiler at Interpol; Special Agent Dr. Spencer Reid, a classically misunderstood genius whose social IQ is as low as his intellectual IQ is high; Jennifer "J.J." Jareau, the team's former unit liaison turned profiler, who juggles motherhood and marriage with the same skill as she solves cases; Penelope Garcia, the team's indispensable computer wizard who helps research the cases with her unique charm; Dr. Tara Lewis, a forensic psychologist whose expertise is studying and interviewing serial killers after they've been captured to determine if they are able to stand trial; Luke Alvez, a former Army ranger and excellent tracker recruited to the BAU from the FBI's Fugitive Task Force; and Special Agent Simmons who joins his colleagues in the BAU after consulting them when he was a member of the International Response Team. Simmons is an ex-Delta soldier with deft profiling skills and military special-ops expertise.
As the team evolves together, the BAU continues its dedication to using their expertise to pinpoint predators' motivations and identify their emotional triggers in the attempt to stop them."
What can we expect for the series finale?
After 15 seasons, the "Criminal Minds" series finale is sure to be packed with nostalgia. The show will conclude with two back-to-back episodes, the first of which is titled "Face-Off." According to CBS' teaser, the first half of the finale will center on Everett Lynch, a.k.a. “The Chameleon.” It's been close to a year since Rossi was nearly killed by the elusive criminal. Rossi has, "developed some new theories, with inspiration from his former partner, Jason Gideon (Ben Savage)." The entire team sets off on an "epic hunt to capture Lynch" according to a press release from CBS.
In the second episode, "And in the End," Dr. Reid suffers from a traumatic brain injury. In his hazy state, he hallucinates ghosts from his past. "Also, the BAU makes a shocking discovery about Lynch that affects Rossi personally, and the entire BAU team comes together to celebrate Rossi’s retirement..." CBS teased.
