CBS issued main press releases for the episodes, the first of which is titled “Face Off” and also memorializes the first anniversary of Rossi virtually passing away through Everett Lynch also known as The Chameleon (played by Castle alum Michael Mosley). When David develops some brand-new theories with inspiration from his previous companion, a young Jason Gideon (returning visitor star Ben Savage), the BAU team sets out on a legendary hunt to capture the elusive opponent.
In the series finale, labelled “And in the End” as well as co-written by showrunner Erica Messer and also cast participant Kirsten Vangsness, “Following an explosive in person experience with The Chameleon, Dr. Reid endures from a brain injury and also, while experiencing hallucinations, is gone to by ghosts from his past.”
Said ghosts, as revealed in the press launch, include late area chief Erin Strauss (played once more by Jayne Atkinson), Seasons 4/5 adversary George Foyet also known as the Reaper (C. Thomas Howell) as well as, yes, Spencer’s very much departed love, Maeve Donovan (Beth Riesgraf).
Jane Lynch likewise guest-stars in the series ender, as Spencer’s mother, Diana, while some great prolonged flashbacks to Season 1 manage to surface a few various other old pals. (As Messer told TVLine a while back, initial actors member Shemar Moore was “really hectic capturing S.W.A.T.” and also couldn’t swing an encore as Derek Morgan.)
Topping the series ending, “the entire BAU team integrates to commemorate Rossi’s retired life”… and also perhaps something more.
