Criminal Minds Season 12 has found the grisly series embracing change, with Thomas Gibson being written out of the series early last season due to an on-set altercation. 

Paget Brewster was drafted in to appease fans when Gibson's exit was just months after the departure of Shemar Moore. 

Initially, Brewster was back for a guest stint, but it quickly became more permanent.

It seemed likely Mathew Gray Gubler's Spencer Reid was being written out earlier this season when the character was arrested for murder.

However, the series has managed to create an intricate tale about him behind bars. 

Also, Adam Rodriguez was added to the cast for some new blood, but it seems like the cast shuffling has hurt the series. 

Ratings down 22 percent this year to 7.5 million viewers and a 1.4 rating. The erosion is somewhat concerning, but it still ranks as the fourth highest-rated drama on the network.

Mays: Seriously?
Rossi: That's part of their training. They can stay awake for 72 hours and remain completely focused on their target.
Mays: How?
Hotch: By using a mental exercise called "fantasy integration". A sniper creates a scenarios involving a target that keeps that person at the forefront of their mind.
Morgan: Often they'll imagine a place where they're with the target, doing something together that takes time. For example, building a car.
JJ: For some, the fantasy begins the minute they're assigned a target. Then nothing will distract them.

They mess you up, your mom and dad. They may not mean to, but they do. They fill you with the faults they had, and add some extra, just for you - Philip Larkin.
