Storyline

Aaron Hotchner is contemplating a transfer to another unit, and Emily Prentiss is quitting the FBI, and Jason Gideon is missing. The team, led shakily by Director Erin Strauss, is called to Milwaukee to investigate a serial killer who has had 5 female victims. Horribly, it seems that the killer is using his young son to lure in the victims. As Aaron rejoins the team, along with Emily, this puts his marriage on shaky ground. We learn the fate of Jason Gideon, as this was the final episode starring Mandy Patinkin, who has left the show. Written by Dave Goldhirsch

Decent, but incorrect in some respects.
26 June 2019 | by fallencarpathiaSee all my reviews

Overall this was a pretty good episode, but what spoiled it for me was their insanely incorrect description of what Borderline personality disorder is. Being as I have BPD myself, it's really quite annoying and frustrating to see it misrepresented in this way, and with a show like this, where they rely upon these facts and profiles for the show to make sense, you'd think they'd accurately research these things.
