Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
I’m so excited that Criminal Minds is back, especially given how last season ended on the cliffhanger of Garcia being kidnapped and Reid being forced at gunpoint to help the bad guys, lest Garcia be killed. In this case, the bad guys were the cult members headed by the guy (called the Messiah) who was cutting out their victims’ hyoid bones. The BAU learned about it when long-missing FBI Agent Quinn was found in a storage unit – alive. At first they thought he was part of the cult, but they later learned he was just as much a victim. They had the Messiah in custody, but at the end of the episode, when Garcia rode down to the garage in the elevator with Quinn and another FBI agent, Mary Meadows, we quickly realized that Meadows was the one who was part of the cult, when she shot Quinn and kidnapped Garcia, turning her over to her henchmen (heh). Reid was then ordered by Meadows to help her get the Messiah out of the FBI’s custody or she would have Garcia shot.
Since both Garcia and Reid were safe from the previous season’s cliffhanger ending, I suppose it’s only fair that they be the two in jeopardy this past season. Given this is a show that doesn’t really hesitate to kill off or say good-bye to their characters, I never take for granted the safety of characters left in jeopardy during a cliffhanger ending. Sure, if either Garcia or Reid are gone, there would be a huge hole in the team/show. As we’ve seen previously, no one can really take Garcia’s place (Kevin, anyone? Gak.), and Reid is in a class of his own. It’s easy to find another good-looking guy who can kick in doors (as evidenced by the two it took to replace Morgan. 😉 ), and there are any number of strong females who could replace JJ or Emily (although, as we’ve seen, they aren’t exactly easy to replace either, since those characters are so beloved). But Reid’s big brain and memory, etc, would be hard to replicate without being a clone, and then…what’s the point of having someone new? So you’d think they’d both be safe. But given that this premiere is the show’s 300th episode, it’s a big one, and if they were going to kill or send either one off, now would be the time to do it, I suppose! (I’ve seen the episode, btw, so I know the answer to all that supposition. But now you have some things to worry about, just like I did…and am? Maybe… *cue evil laugh*)
On tonight’s episode, “300,” when Reid and Garcia are abducted by Benjamin Merva (Michael Hogan), it’s up to the rest of the team to find them. The BAU finds surprising clues in their own history to solve why the two heroes have been targeted by a mass murderer. It’s a race to save them before a “Believers” prophecy is fulfilled.
Find out if the team can save Garcia and Reid tonight on CBS at 10/9c.
