CBS’s top-rated Police procedural drama, Criminal Minds, has given fans multiple note-worthy episodes that left fans craving for more and more. The show has been running for the past fifteen years and is expected to appear with another season soon. It made its debut on September 22, 2005, and was supposed to be concluded on February 19, 2020, but its reboot was announced in February 2021.
In fifteen seasons, the writers have given us many memorable episodes. Some of which we enjoyed while some of which we genuinely embodied by creating various situations in the lives of our beloved profilers.
What drew the audiences toward CBS’s top-rated police procedural crime drama, Criminal Minds, was the portrayal of our beloved characters as the knowledgeable Supervisory Special Agents of the FBI as members of its Behavioural Analysis Unit.
These agents are known as Profilers, who specialize in studying human behavior. They have studied the language of actions and have critically examined how the criminals function in their natural habitat. These agents work wonderfully together and have proved from time to time that they indeed are family.
The Supervisory Special Agent and the unit chief, Aaron “Hotch” Hotchner. His character was first introduced in the series’ pilot episode “Extreme Aggressor,” and its last appearance was in the twelfth season, episode two, “Sick Day.” Hotch led his team with skill, staying on top of current cases and matching new evidence with previous issues and unsubs.
Despite being one the best agents and unit chief, there were moments when viewers believed him to be less than ideal. The worst moment of his career is his treatment of Dr. Spencer Reid during seasons 2 and 3. In the episode where Reid was kidnapped, Reid showed his trust in his leader, and Aaron came through.
But after that, fans believed that he should have taken care of his team members after witnessing his symptoms.
