The team acts surprised when they find out one victim was able to purchase a shotgun and leave with it the same day. Since this is the normal legal procedure in the vast majority of U.S. states, this should have been no surprise to a federal agent. See more »


Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: You guys can catch up on the jet.
Dr. Spencer Reid: Oh yeah, that'd be great.
David Rossi: The jet?

Introducing David Rossi!
12 September 2013 | by (Seymour Tennessee) – See all my reviews

We are introduced to David Rossi played by the great character actor, Joe Mantegna as really it is nice he is getting recognized on this show. I will admit, as well as Gideon fans that they did not take too kindly to Rossi.

Rossi was old school and took matters into his own hands. Plus his character had to take time to develop. As now he is one of the most popular on there.

Despite being ten years out of the BAU and one of it's founders sort to speak. Speaking and writing in retirement. Still the character I love now. After not liking him at first. As he still has that investigative mood. But he had to be a team player first. In order to click with the current BAU.

In this Halloween episode. Where a federal agent would not be surprised if someone took a gun or if a first victim disappears. That is what they are called in for.
