Best Criminal Minds Episodes


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Season 1 Episode 7: The Fox

Brilliantly cryptic ending, when Gideon reveals the rings in the box you can't help but piece together how many people were murdered by this serial killer

The moment Gideon screams to check out the neighbors reaction.. Goosbumps

22 Season 5 Episode 16: Mosley Lane

It was just an amazing episode... Not particularly gory, but the storyline was so touching... I was on the edge of my seat the entire time, and the final minutes made me cry, out of joy and sadness at the same time. The ending, although kinda sad, was so relieving! The directing was amazing, and the casting too! Especially Evan Peters, he was extremely touching! He's so talented! I loved him in this episode (and I love him anyways! ). It's a wonderful episode!

It's such an amazing episode! The directing was brilliant! It made me feel grief and happiness at the same time... I so loved it! Matthew Gray Gubler did an unbelievable job at directing it (and it's actually the first episode he directs! ) and Evan Peters was simply amazing. His performance as Charlie Hillridge was so touching! Mosley Lane is very thrilling, and the ending is very moving! I VERY highly suggest you watch this episode more!

Must watch! I cried, it literally shows humanity! Couldn't be a better episode!

Very touching and emotional at the end.

25 Season 2: Episode 5: Aftermath
26 Season 5 Episode 8: OutFoxed
27 Season 8 Episode 12: Zugzwang

I love Spencer, he's my favorite and love this one, one of the saddest episodes of the show

I cried my eyes out for Spencer one of the best and saddest episodes od the show.

Definitely the saddest episode of the show, when Maeve died I cried so much, I felt so bad for Spencer, gosh, he's my favorite character on the show :(
But this episode was very well directed

Amazing. Heart-wrenching. Tear-jerking. Mathew’s acting was phenomenal in this particular episode.

Also, Thomas Mertin! Need I say more?

28 Season 1 Episode 9: Derailed
29 Season 3 Episode 8: Lucky

Really creepy with insane plot twist

30 Season 2 Episode 10: Lessons Learned V 1 Comment
31 Season 2 Episode 23: No Way Out II: The Evolution of Frank

Frank is one of my favorite serial killers. Having thwarted the police for so long he is so intelligent and tells it like it is.

32 Season 7 Episode 12: Unknown Subject
33 Season 4 Episode 20: In Conflict

Its just amazing the change of personality from Adam to Amanda, one of the bests episodes ever

34 Season 4 Episode 8: Masterpiece

Excellent episode, especially when Rossi foils the killer's plan

35 Season 10 Episode 21: Mr. Scratch

I think this is a great episode, Hotch was flawless with the act. I really like this one, but I was really confused on how all the victims where controlled with this chemical, poison thing, but somehow Hotch was not. Does it not include with him? I was super confused, but the ending was great with the move that Hotch made faking the kill on Morgan, he turned and got the Unsub. It was just amazing!

Matthew did an amazing job directing this; I was captivated throughout the entire episode. Honestly, the scene at the end had me screaming.

36 Season 9 Episode 5: Route 66
37 Season 8 Episode 8: The Wheels on the Bus

I love this one. I think it's the best. The unsubs are so interesng and I like how pretty much everyone makes it out alive (par: the attendant and one student). This should be number one.

38 Season 8 Episode 10: The Lesson

This guy is just so weird and disturbing. Dislocating joints and piercing hands to create life Marionettes, definitely one of the best episodes.

"the way the guy treats people as if they were objects is creepy as hell. One of the best episodes I've seen so far."

Don't forget the two creepy plot twists at the end

39 Season 2 Episode 13: No Way out
40 Season 4 Episode 2: The Angel Maker

To think that one person could be so devoted to another, that they impregnate themselves with sperm smuggled out of prison, and go on to finish the series of murders their lover started, making themselves the last victim.
