Criminal Minds: Preview of Episode 5.16 "Mosley Lane"

After a three-week hiatus, Criminal Minds returns tonight with another creepy episode. The team profiles a child abductor who may have been harboring children for more than eight years. Like similar cases in the past, there's typically a scary explanation to all of it, and that's what makes it so creepy. It is also the directorial debut of Matthew Gray Gubler, who plays Spencer Reid on the show.

The last time on Criminal Minds, the BAU dealt with a serial killer in Providence who was murdering his victims in public places in an effort to cause to cause widespread fear. Creepy way to start it, too, with a nice little family going to church and someone just slashing the throat of the father before the service.

Apparently, similar murders occurred in a laundromat and a restaurant bathroom, so the team flew to Rhode Island to investigate, en route to a very creep scene with Rossi (Joe Mantegna) reenacting the throat-slitting in the church.

Catch Criminal Minds tonight on CBS.

The promo, which features a little Hotch-Prentiss scene, is after the jump:

Much as I love Criminal Minds, it's starting to depress me. I appreciate that serial murder is never likely to raise many laughs, but this series is so well acted, so finely crafted, that it's getting to me and making me feel bad. Mosley Lane was very hard to watch. I think they need to lighten the endings a little more - give us poor schmucks something to cling on to. They shouldn't have killed off the lad a day before the couple were caught - it wouldn't have hurt them to keep him alive and allow him to be rescued too. We had all these sad photos of children who had not made it to feel sad about.I might have to give up watching it soon if it carries on like this. There's only so much a person can take.

Personally i thought that was a happy ending. it isn't that often that so many victims are saved! and Matthew Gray Gubler did a great job of directing i hope he does some more!
