I hope you all got a chance to see the awesome season finale of Criminal Minds. If you didn’t, you really missed a good one. But guess what? You can watch the entire thing at Criminal Minds Video – Hit & Run!
To be honest, I actually hadn’t intended to write about the show. After all, the finales for all of my favorite shows have been playing – every one just as dramatic – and attempting to cover all of them is just more than I’m up to taking on. But the beautiful song from the end of Hit & Run just keeps playing over and over in my head, and that is what I really wanted to post. And let me tell you, that took a little doing.
Before the song though, here’s a bit from the official Composer’s Recap of the show, followed by the trailer:
“In this heart wrenching two- hour season finale, season 7 concludes with a federal bank under attack and hostages being taken, including a BAU team member. Meanwhile, Emily Prentiss says goodbye.
This episode centers around a ticking clock as a bank robbery quickly becomes a hostage situation and the BAU are called in immediately. For the central theme of this episode, we composed a rhythmic pulse that continually builds as the situation becomes more immediate and stressful for all parties involved. The heart pounding theme resonates with distorted drums, basses and guitars. As the situation becomes more stressful, the pulse’s tempo continually changes, becoming faster and faster as different situations occur. …”
And now that wonderful song from the ending:
I want ice water.
