Women are found dead inside their own homes throughout L.A. The BAU searches security footage for an UnSub who was invited into each victim’s home.
It’s very hard to get me excited about a Criminal Minds episode nowadays. It seems that the spark has gotten out of the show the past couple of seasons and there have been barely any cases which have kept me sitting at the edge of my seat.
Thankfully, courtesy of a piece of inspired guest-star casting and a cliffhanger ending, this episode was somewhat thrilling.
I haven’t seen Carmine Giovinazzo in anything since CSI:NY ended and in typical Criminal Minds fashion they made him into a really believable bad guy and erased all of the good cop Danny Messer about him.
Interesting setup of having him pretending to be law enforcement. It’s scary how natural it would be to let someone in your house if you believed they were a cop.
As to the ending? Wow, poor Derek. I’ve heard rumours that Shemar might be leaving the show? I hope not. Anyway, I can’t wait to find out why the gang of men attacked him. Usually with big character episodes like this, there is some sort of build-up and moments laying the groundwork but this time there’s been nothing.
