Criminal Minds: 11×16 – Derek

When Morgan is abducted, the BAU scrambles to find him and save his life.


I am so confused.

I feel like I just watched an hour of !tortureporn and !characterwhomp and I don’t even know why.

In fact the first thing I did when I finished the episode was search Google because I felt like I must have just tuned out when they explained WHY Morgan was abducted and tortured but nope, didn’t miss something that didn’t happen.  I mean, typical TV for leaving part of the plot unresolved and dragging it out over future episodes but it didn’t even end with a “Will you marry me Savannah but oh God before the wedding I must hunt down the people who did this to me!” speech to highlight the fact that there were outstanding questions.

Anyway, rewind to when I watched the previous episode.  I had seen a few comments where a lot of fans thought that Shemar would be leaving the series so I purposefully remained spoilerfree for this episode and avoided social media until I watched it.

*spoiler alert” Derek survives so I breathed a sigh of relief but it turns out there are rumours that he will still leave in a later episode, presumably after he finds out who ordered his abduction.

Sad times.

There’s really nothing else to say about this episode apart from great casting of guest-stars with Danny Glover playing Derek’s Dad and Tyree Brown from Parenthood playing the younger version of Derek.
