The BAU team is called in when a girl, Kate Joyce, is reported missing while vacation in Atlantic Beach.

Her roommates say she never returned to her hotel room after leaving the Sea-crets nightclub with two men, Syd Phillips and Jim Barrett.

The town and entire police force believe these two guys did something to Kim but the two guys aren't talking and it's been almost three days.

Only 12 hours are left before they're released.

Our team comes in to use their master profiling skills and observe the two guys' non-verbal cues to see if they can get something out of them.

Through their questioning and an important find by JJ, the team is able to create a more specific timeline that ultimately causes Jim Barrett to slip up.

In the final hour, the Coast Guard finds Kate, alive, clinging to a buoy, and reunites her with her family.

JJ can no longer ignore the repeated job offers from the Department of Defense and Director Strauss tells her she has no other choice but to leave the BAU and take the job with the DOD.

Hotch does his best to try and stop it and keep JJ but it's no use, and the team says goodbye.

Episode Number:

Does anyone know the name of the singer and song played at the end of the episode? Thanks.


They should have gotton rid of Director Strauss. AJ is an important part of that team. How could anyone think the show would be better without her. Criminal Minds is my favorite show and I have been disappointed to see the direction it is taking. If the formula works........why change it?


i really think they made a mistake jj is one that keeps everyone in sync she will really be missed.. already missing u jj


This is my favorite show of all time and I cried at end of this episode. All the strong female stars are being picked off one by one. I have waiting not so patiently for this show to start this fall and this is what NBC does!!!!! OHHHH I really saddened.


I have watched Criminal Minds since it first started and to get rid of JJ was a big mistake so I guess this will be the beginning downfall for this show. Fans like me will probably move on to something else. If you want to boost rating get rid of the woman causing the problem and keep the group. the way they are. I hate this why mess with a good thing. GET JJ BACK.


Why did JJ leave? How in the world will she ever be replaced? It will not be the same without her. She was a vital part. I don't know if I want to watch this anymore, even if it was my favorite show. How can you do this? Don't you know a good thing when you have it starring you in the face? Good Lord!!!! BRING HER BACK!!!!


No need for her to leave the show. Why? Although it is my favorite show she was a big part of it. She is a big part of the story line every week. Bring her back. Big Mistake to let her go.


I cannot understand the departure of AJ Cook. Guess i'll be checking my TV guide for a new 8pm Central program!


I have been a fan of this show from day one. I was very sad when Mandy left because he was a personal favourite from way back. I know that Mandy wanted to leave and so was written off and in with a really good story line. JJ's leaving is so unnecessary, or maybe there were other production issues? She is the quiet member that as Garcia said, the 'glue' that holds the team together. Now Paget is leaving after this season? I dont get it. Some of the production team should share their vission with the fans. We may not like where you want to take this show.


Can't believe J.J. is gone. Serious mistake. PLEASE get her back!!!
