This photo says it all. What an incredible ride with seven of the most caring, hardworking, talented people I have ever had the good fortune of working with. And a stellar team that toiled behind the scenes to make every inch of @crimmindscbs extraordinary. Thanks to everyone who touched the show and showed me kindness along the way, to Erica Messer and Breen Frazier and that fateful first day where they pitched me a six-episode arc that turned into five exceptional seasons. Wheels up, friends. #wheelsup
Additionally, Daniel Henney posted a series of images from his time on the set of the show as he expressed that he would miss the cast and crew of the CBS show.
Amidst the farewell messages from celebrities and fans, People revealed that Wednesday's two-hour finale showed the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) as they came together to capture Everett Lynch – more fondly referred to as "The Chameleon."
TV Line further divulged that the finale showed Dr. Spencer getting caught up in a Season 1 exchange between his younger self, Derek, Elle, Hotch, and Gideon. The character had embarked on a chase, which led him to Garcia's office.
The show eventually closed off as the stars of the show attempted to give the BAU a departure without notice, by slipping away days early.
