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

Finale was great until the very end
21 May 2007 | by (Metairie, LA) – See all my reviews

I detest back-stabbing politics, abuse of authority, ego-induced deceit and blackmail in order to produce disunity and downfall of someone you have it in for. If Criminal Minds continues on the tack that it ended the finale, I won't be able to be a viewer anymore. I love this show; it's intelligent, draws you into its story and characters. I love the characters and their interaction. It is a group effort. To put a political witch-hunt and effort to destroy the group really irks me. Why can't the producers and writers continue in the same successful way that's proved itself. Why do they have to make stinking politics and abuse of authority the center of the new season. I hope the "new girl" isn't pressured to dismember the team. If distrust, deceit and political pressuring becomes central to the theme of the show; I'm afraid they've lost me. My dream episode at the beginning of the new season would be for the new girl to call the team together and tell all without concern for herself. They'd be sure to keep her on the team and we wouldn't have to deal with the unhappy, vengeful witch and her political agenda.

It is now November 2009 and I am still enjoying Criminal Minds. The team has been together and the political agenda of destroying the team was dispersed. Still a great show with characters I care about.
