A week after Criminal Minds' fifth season closed, fans are somewhat divided over the finale. Some decried the lack of any major event or cliffhanger, while others enjoyed the change of attack.
We reported previously that even newly trimmed Matthew Gray Gubler agreed that the season 5 finale of Minds didn't measure up to the crazy closers the show's had in the past, and executive producer Erica Messer conceded that it didn't "end with as many question marks" as the past two seasons.
"We can't do that little trick again unless we're going to actually kill someone," Messer said. For Gubler, it's more of a choice to veer away from the usual Minds ending.
"Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think you even get the impression that Morgan's going to die. I think it's more like, 'What is Morgan going to do?' We pull a MacGyver cliff-hanger."
The more passionate of the show's legion of viewers, as they posted on the show's official Facebook page, want Minds to go back to its psychology focus instead of turning into another crime drama.
On the other hand, those who loved the episode noted guest star Tim Curry's outstandingly creepy portrayal of the killer and the fantastic case.
