Oh, how I hate to admit it, but every once in a while, my favorite show on television leaves me with a reaction that can be summed up in one word: Meh. It almost pains me to say that Minimal Loss was one of those episodes. Andrew Wilder, you wrote us so many great episodes: Elephant's Memory, Lucky, North Mammon, L.D.S.K.. What happened? I have to wonder what kind of hacking occurred between script and screen. Was it in the editing? I wish I knew. The only plus in this episode for me was the focus on Rossi. They actually touched on his past with Waco and Ruby Ridge, and let him use his experience and strength as a negotiator, which is an honor that usually goes to Hotch. It was a bright spot in an otherwise 'Mind'less episode.
