Criminal Minds Season Finale Recap 5/6/15 – “The Hunt”
Criminal Minds season finale opens with Meg Callahan and Markayla Davis sitting together in the back seat of Paige’s mini van. The driver is quiet as the teenagers continue to bombard her with questions about her son Bobby, and their excitement about tonight’s concert. When Paige doesn’t make the correct turn to the concert hall, Meg calls Paige out and requests for her to stop the vehicle immediately. When Paige nonchalantly locks all the doors and refuses to stop, Meg pulls out her cell phone and beings to text her aunt Kate, “pep” when all of a sudden a 20-something male by the name of Kyle pops up from behind the back seat. He quickly grabs for Markayla and then Meg and interjects the teenagers with a needle into their necks; the two best friends are drugged and now have passed out.
Meanwhile at the BAU Headquarters, Reid, Morgan, Kate and JJ are sitting around talking when Kate receives a partial text from Meg. After reading the partial word of the panic code, Kate quickly dials her niece’s cell phone number; her phone call goes straight to voice mail. Without missing a beat, Kate calls Markayla’s mom, Caroline, who believes her daughter is with Meg at the library. In complete control; Kate walks down the hallway and into Garcia’s office, where the two women begin to track Meg’s cell phone number. A few moments pass when Garcia quickly receives a loss of signal dialog box on her computer screen. In the interim, Hotch walks in and begins to inquire about this case.
This week’s slideshow begins with video feed from an establishment across the street from the library, where we see a willing Meg and Markayla getting into a tan mini van. With this action documented, Hotch issues an Amber Alert on Meg and Markayla.
Meanwhile, Kate’s husband Chris arrives at the BAU, Kate asks her husband about Meg’s friends: Bobby and Tyler. He pauses for a moment to think when Garcia interjects to confirm these two boys are not real. Kate is worried and begins to faint, Chris catches her. When she comes too, Hotch tells Kate to go home, and they’ll keep her in constant contact about this case.
Reid and Morgan visit Sam Devers’ home, he is the friend of Meg and Markayla. The agents believe he knows something about Bobby. At first, Sam couldn’t remember anything of importance about Bobby, but when the photo topic becomes the forefront of this conversation, Sam remembers he “might” have a photo of Bobby stored in the cloud. This photo was sent to Hotch and then to Kate. After viewing this photo, Kate remembers seeing this photo of Bobby in a case file: the Torso case.
Later that evening, Paige meets up with Broker boyfriend, Alex Zorgen, at their home in the woods. Meg and Markayla are now awake and are still sitting in the back seat of the minivan with their wrists tied together with plastic ties. Meg tells Markayla they need to devise a plan, if they plan on surviving this ordeal. Meg creates a diversion, as Markayla is able to break free and makes a mad dash into the woods. An upset Alex tells Kyle to run after Markayla, as Paige and him restraint Meg.
