New this month Question: I'm a bit confused by the end to the whole 'Ian Doyle saga'. Namely I'm confused by Chloe Donaghy's motives. I get that she wanted to sell Declan to an enemy of Doyle for money and flee the country, but why did she stay with Lachlan McDermott? Why did they get on the plane together instead of going there separate ways? Did she want to see Doyle suffer at the hands of McDermott? And why did McDermott want to flee the country if he wanted to hurt Doyle? Did he not know Doyle was in federal custody?
Question: What was the reasoning behind Derek specifically being targeted for abduction?
Answer: Back in Target Rich, a hitman named Giuseppe Montolo dies whilst being interrogated by Derek. The men who abducted Derek were hired by his father, Chazz, who seems to blame Derek for his son's death. It's explained further in A Beautiful Disaster.
Question: The crew takes a private jet to most locations but always have the same black S.U.V.s. How do the vehicles get there as fast as the crew?
Answer: Black SUVs are common police, military and dignitary vehicles around the world. It is not too much to assume they could be rented or owned by the police forces in the areas.
Question: In the scene near the beginning, Morgan and Hotchner are on video call with Garcia, she is away from the screen, Morgan calls for her and she comes running to the screen saying she is on. They ask her to research something and she replies like usual and Hotchner thanks her but I think instead of saying "Garcia" I think he called her "Kristin." Can anyone confirm?
Answer: I just double-checked, he does say Garcia.
Question: I have the DVD sets for all the seasons, and I am wondering if anyone else noticed this issue with season 8,Disc 4, episodes "all that remain" and the next episode "broken", the descriptors of the episodes on the DVD case are correct and in the right order of when they were aired, but when I click "all that remains" it plays the "broken" episode and vice versa,I wouldn't have noticed if I didn't happen to look up one of the actors in an episode, just wondering if anyone else had this issue with their DVDs, or any other similar issues with their DVDs?Thanks.
Answer: I just noticed the same thing about season 8 disk four, Broken and All that remains are reversed on the DVD.
Question: How did the "Fisher King" know Elle was going to be home? Hotchner sent her home and she was home a very short time before he appeared and shot her.
Answer: After framing her for the killing at the hotel her and Morgan were staying in he must have known that she would not rest until the quest was over because it was a personal insult to her. He could have known her attitude while studying her as he did the rest of the team. His studies would also show him that Aaron would send her home to rest because he needed her mind fresh. He puts what he knows of the two team mates from studying them and comes to the assumption she was going to be sent home to rest.
Question: I know that JJ is/was the media liaison for the team we as the audience follow; but a few times other teams have been mentioned. So is she the liaison for the other teams too? (She seemed to go with the team most of the time on their cases).
Answer: Having seen just about every episode, as well as the spinoff (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, which focuses on a different team) it seems like she ONLY works with her team, being the liaison and media specialist for them only. The other team didn't have anyone in that capacity, choosing their cases on their own. And since that team specializes in crimes happening now, not after the fact like the original team, they have no need for that position.
Question: How did the BAU know who Unsub was? He had e-mailed his victims and created a program that was sent through e-mail to erase all information of who he was and how to locate him, but the BAU did.
Answer: The team told the local police the Unsub would have already injected himself into the case, either coming forward as a 'witness' or volunteering to search for the missing woman. Once they came up with a profile they compared it to everyone who had approached the police about the case and eliminated everyone who didn't match the profile (wrong gender, age, etc.). They didn't explain it very well, and in real life it would have taken much longer so it's easy to get confused.
