Criminal Minds Episode Review: “The Witness”

Criminal Minds

Season 11 | Episode 2 | Aired: October 7, 2015

As a person who frequent travels on the bus this episode was terrifying.

After Sarin Gas is released on a public bus in Los Angeles, the BAU must determine if it’s a lone attack or part of larger plan.

This was a really great (and terrifying) episode. It also really had you guessing as to who the actual unsub was. It seemed so obvious at first, but then you would question it, then you’d think you knew again, but then you weren’t quite sure…

By the end of the episode they caught two unsubs for two different crimes and you actually felt kind of bad for one of them. Well, I did, I’m assuming other people did too.

One guy killed the man who was having an affair with his wife, but when he did this he was seen by the guy’s brother who then started to blackmail him. The guys brother is actually the unsub for the other crime and was trying to frame the first guy in the Sarin Gas release.

All these episodes later and I will never stop being both impressed and slightly frightened that the creators and writers can still think of so many crimes and then on top of that, so many plot twists for each episode. Seriously, how do they do it?


Something that really stood out last night was the frowning friendship between Reid and Dr. Tara Lewis, the newest member of the BAU.

I’ve heard rumours that Reid may get a new love interest this season so if this is the case and they’re hinting that it’s Tara I guess we know she won’t be around for very long cause the writers don’t like Reid to be happy for too long.

I hope she is around for at least a while though cause it normally takes me a few episodes to determine if I like the new character or not and I’m not 100% certain how I feel about her yet. She seems like a cool character, but no joins the BAU without having some sort of sketchy past so I’m waiting for hers to come out.

I really liked this episode and next week looks even better! Let me know what you thought in the comments down below!
