The last the BAU saw of serial killer Frank, he vowed never to kill anyone again if he only had Jane in his life. Because he was holding children hostage, the BAU allowed Frank to take Jane and escape incarceration in exchange for releasing the children. Frank has reentered Gideon's personal life. Apparently, Jane has come to Washington D.C. to look for Gideon. Frank in turn is holding a friend of Gideon's named Sarah until Jane is returned. Later, Gideon goes missing. The BAU have no idea what has happened to him. All they know is that Sarah is found dead in his apartment which is covered with blood spatters, and that he was seen leaving his apartment also covered in blood and brandishing a gun. However because Sarah was eviscerated of a right rib bone which was found in her hand, the BAU know that Frank is back. Since Gideon is still a suspect in the murder, they know they will not be asked to join the investigation. Gideon manages to telephone Hotch to let him know what he knows. ... Written by Huggo

Erin Strauss: Your team is in trouble. They've lost sight of the big picture. I believe they are reckless and at times out of control. It's time for Agent Hotchner's career to come to an end. And if you want to stay in the BAU, Agent Prentiss, you're going to help me make that happen.

I never thought they could keep up the pace...................
23 December 2007 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

of the first series but having just sat through the whole of Series 2 I have found it every bit as good.I was a bit disappointed when Elle Greenway(Lola Glaudini)left albeit I liked the way she did so and it was so nice to see a bit of summary justice handed out for a change and I definitely couldn't see anyone filling her shoes and suddenly Emily Prentiss arrived in the form of Paget Brewster and has done well to fit in the way she has but then again she had a few years under her belt in other agencies already."JJ" has been allowed to flirt a little more and this has in turn permitted us to do so with her and Morgan has also been able to show he too has his vulnerable side.Mandy Patinkin has been like a father figure for the poor young Dr. but who does he turn to in his hour of need? Kirsten Vansgress the computer whizz can be a comedienne/serious or whatever you want and Aaron Hotchner turning the tables on the shrink at the end was absolute genius.As he said to her "I'm good at my job".There is in my opinion a fair mixture of everything although perhaps the episodes are a bit short in themselves to include a topic on someone such as Theodore Bundy. Also I hope that if in future any of the actors are despatched with as in the case of Ms.Glaudini it is because they have other projects in the pipeline or only agreed to sign on for 1 series say and are not written off because the production team simply feel their character for some reason "isn't working" because hers was! That said, as usual I found that once I picked up this pack of DVD's I couldn't put them down and undoubtedly this would be in my top 5 all time favourites.
