Criminal Minds 8.23 and 8.24 reaction post. SPOILERS
Overall, there were predictable moments but there was also a lot of intense moments and it made for a good finale. I feel sorry for Rossi that he had to come under CBS’ allergy to relationships, however, I suppose that was about the only member you could really kill off and not have a flipping tables fest from the fandom. It was a good finale and had a good pacing. I would totally watch it again in reruns.
Beware of spoilers. Please keep in mind while reading the reaction post, I write it as I watch, so if something seems amiss, I was making assumptions that got answered later.
