Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Gregory Wilson (as Grant Albrecht)


In separate incidents, three exotic dancers have been found dead in corn fields in Johnson County, Indiana. The women were abducted following their shift at work on a Friday night, and killed sometime at the end of the weekend on Sunday. The latest victim, Meredith Joy, had the DNA of two people under her fingernails, meaning that there are at least two unsubs. In reviewing the site where Meredith's body was found, Morgan and Rossi determine that there are probably three unsubs who are locals since they seem to know the area well. Another dancer, Stephanie Wilson, has just been determined missing, leaving the BAU less than two days to find the unsubs before she will be killed. As the BAU come up with profiles for the unsubs, Garcia finds an interesting connection of the case to the sheriff's office, Sheriff Salters with who the BAU have had a problematic relationship. Meanwhile, after the unsubs see reports of the murders on the television news, the true nature of their relationship ... Written by Huggo

Great episode with Amazing Guest Stars!
3 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this show, but this episode "Middle Man" was particularly good with great guest stars; please have Robert Newman and Michael Grant Terry on as guest stars as often as possible. Better yet, recurring or regular roles would be even better. They really heated up this episode!!! Not to take away from the regular stars of the show that keep me watching week after week, but we all know that Criminal Minds must rely on guest stars for the episode plots. I'd say that this episode hits a Perfect 10 because of Newman and Terry! I think the guest stars made me realize how wonderful the regular actors are as well. The way the regular stars all interact on a weekly basis make this one of the best shows ever! I could see Newman being part of that team. Terry could make a wonderful serial killer in my opinion!
