Criminal Minds Season 12 Episode 22 Review: Red Light

After an erratic season, "Red Light" was a fairly respectable finale. Criminal Minds Season 12 Episode 22 was jam-packed with a resolution to the Diana kidnapping, Reid-and-Cat mind games, a Derek Morgan cameo and an unexpected cliffhanger. I liked how the Reid-and-Cat scenes were handled. It was very reminiscent of their engrossing first meeting on Criminal Minds Season 11 Episode 11. ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/05/criminal-minds-season-12-episode-22-review-red-light/

'Criminal Minds' Season 12 Finale Recap: Reid Faces Off Against Cat, But What Does Scratch Have Up His Sleeve?

Yes, Cat Adams is a psychopath and has put Reid through hell, but Matthew Gray Gubler and Aubrey Plaza play off one another so well it's impossible not to hope to see her in the future, and as great as they were in "Entropy," that has nothing on how spectacular they are in this Criminal Minds episode. The season 12 finale, "Red Light," sees the team working to save Diana Reid from Lindsey Vaughn, who has been working with Cat, not Mr. Scratch, as they all thought, but that doesn't mean that Peter Lewis' presence isn't still felt. Well, it's at least likely he's behind what brings Morgan back (briefly) to his old workplace. ...Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/criminal-minds/criminal-minds-season-12-final-64618.aspx

That in fact the game Prometheus [] http://tvline.com/2017/05/10/criminal-minds-recap-season-12-finale-reid-versus-cat/

Criminal Minds Recap 5/3/17: Season 12 Episode 21 “Green Light”

Reid’s mother was in trouble. Her nurse had apparently disappeared and she was suddenly being taken care of by this new person her son happened to know. However, Lindsey Vaughn wasn’t just anyone. She was someone that Reid had saved many years ago and who was supposed to be in the Witness Protection Program though Reid hadn’t seen nor heard from her since 2007. So he had been little confused at first about how she came to be his mother’s nurse and why she was calling herself Carol Atkinson. And so it didn’t become clear to him what was happening until Carol managed to get away with his mother. Though Reid hadn’t wasted any time when it came to talking to his friends about this new threat. He told Prentiss that he didn’t know why Lindsey was targeting him or his mother, but he admitted that Lindsey could have been the woman that drugged him in Mexico and so that led to even more questions. Like why would she target him and if she was working with Scratch. It had been Scratch’s drugs after all that had gone to work on Reid and had left him in a disorientated state. So Reid didn’t know what to believe when it came to Lindsey meanwhile Prentiss had been a little skeptical. READ MORE...

Criminal Minds Season 12 Episode 20 Review: Unforgettable

Well, there's nothing like sitting through 44 minutes of humdrum narrative to get to one minute of reveal. But that was the situation on Criminal Minds Season 12 Episode 20 .
