Criminal Minds Season 9 Review “Final Shot”

I don’t often care, or even pay attention to, any of the advertising going into the TV episodes I review. I don’t think it’s fair to hold the show’s cast and creators accountable for the marketing claims that their network is in control of, but this week I just had to mention it. Tonight’s Unsub was hyped up as being “Unlike any other” that the BAU has ever faced. With a promise like that, I was expecting tonight’sCriminal Minds episode “Final Shot” to be a little different from the rest.

What we ended up getting was basically more of the same, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing! It was a very exciting episode that really started off with a bang (pun intended!). We open on downtown Dallas, Texas. How do you know we’re in Texas? Because one of the very first people we see is wearing a huge cowboy hat! Anyway, I was thinking that the cute blond girl would get to actually say a couple words to her crush before all hell breaks loose, but that didn’t happen. I can’t remember the last time that I jumped so much while watching this show, and then everything just went from bad to worse.
