I feel like the 15 years of Criminal Minds 2005-2020 thank you for the memories shirt thing is equivalent to the last 2 minutes of How I Met Your Mother – they’re trying to ruin the whole series. They have always loved each other but it’s a family-type love. It was so out of character for Reid to even follow up and ask JJ if she really meant it. Even if he felt that way, Reid is way too classy to put himself between JJ and her family, he loves her whole family, not just her. And the part of the beginning where it showed that Reid couldn’t read her poker face why should we believe that he could read it at the end of the show?
Plus, the writers already tried to make us believe 15 years of Criminal Minds 2005-2020 thank you for the memories shirt had an affair a few seasons back and that was proven to be out of her character as well. I feel like this writing is just for shock factor and has nothing to do with the actual character lines they’ve been developing for years. This was such a disappointing season finale. And why did the season end so early? I’m so disappointed. Hardly any episodes with Reid in them, then this mess of a finale in February? Come on.
