Gideon left; Mandy Patinkin asked to be released from his contract citing Creative Differences - he left of his own accord...

Rossi is meant to fill the gap left by MP's abrupt departure, however, he is not meant to be a replacement of the character of Gideon. He is playing his own character and right now, people are 50/50 on him. I think he's bringing out something different in each team member and helping them to grow and also, he is slowly growing on people. I know I'm getting used to him.

I think you need to calm down about the new character (Rossi). I will admit the first episode of him in it wasn't good. The episodes following that isn't so bad anymore. The way i view it now (which has changed dramatically) I think we all should give him a chance for his character to develop. We shouldn't really judge him when he hasn't even been on for one whole season......give him that much than if you haven't changed your mind then thats fine, you can continue to say that you want him gone. 8  out of 10 found this valuable.

you all kinda miss the point of the Hollywood formula, it is in your best interest to have an initial character seem "not good" to you. Uncomfortable. Because your desire to get comfortable requires of you exactly that, as in the first episode with "M.P." As in his first roll, MMortalis PProportionist, the best by far, he explains why you must die, in coordinance with his "Creative Difference." 'Sleep Well, Patiently". 2  out of 6 found this valuable.

I'd like for him to come back for the show finale(It'd be great if he saw that Reid needed him THEN and THERE and he just appeared) Have you seen any recent photo's of him? It's horroriable! I wanted to scream "Gidoen, get that hairy thing off of you face!"

I am a MP fan and have been for years, but he left and lett abruptly as is his way. I did not like Gidion. He was a pain. He kept forgetting who the head of the team was. An incidents like telling Garcia that she was stupid when she used her pc for gaming and then was later responsible for Elle geting shot, what was his response? "She'll understand I was doing my job." Apparently she didn't. Always justifying himself. Rossi does't challenge Hotch except as a friend. I have always been a Joe M fan and always will. 9  out of 13 found this valuable. Do you?

He left, but I was sad when he did because gideon left because he couldn't handle it because he kept seeing his girlfriend everywhere when they were on a case and so he wrote a letter to reid, and left it in his cabin along with his gun and his badge. and in the next episode, when Gideon didn't show up,m the team got worried and called him and stuff, but didn't know where he was. So, in the end of that episode, it shows reid (he he) going to his cabin and walking and finding the letter and gun and badge and the it shows Gideon at a diner getting cofee or something and then leaving to go some where.
i seriously think they should bring him back, just as a cameo, though, you knw, like meet him up at a case or something. I think that would be cool.(:

I've seen Gideon's last ep and the ones leading up to it. But the character of Gideon left because Mandy left, not the other way around. Mandy did the same with Chicago Hope. He is a magnificent actor as he againg showed on Three Rivers a dying patient

You sound just like I did!!!!!!!!! I kept asking why did Mandy Patinkin (NOT GIDEON) leave Criminal minds????? And I kept getting answers like the blood & gore was too much for him & I'd get very frustrated, like DO I HAVE TO SPELL IT OUT???The ACTOR, not the character. Finally, someone said MANDY Pantinkin felt the show was getting too graphic, too bloody, violent, whatever.

I thought, well, geez, what'd he expect, it IS a show about serial killers & what not. But it is also a show primarily about profilers, profiling, etc. Ilove MP, have for long time. I was so excited when I first heard a show about profilers was coming out, then that Mandy would star! I miss him, I miss Gideon, but I've also always liked Joe Mantegna & I grew to like Rossi (took a little while). someone msg. me that MP is doing a stellar performance in a play on Broadway. He is s Shakespearean trained actor & an opera (i believe operatic) singer.

I hope this helps, I went thru same thing for years!!!!!

I really didn't like Gideon-too egotistical and condescending. Yes, Mandy Patinkin is a broadway star. He won a Tony for "Sunday in the Park with George." A great singer, but it seems every show he was on, he left after 2-3 years. As for Rossi. I love his dry sense of humor. 5  out of 6 found this valuable. Do you?

"An incidents like telling Garcia that she was stupid when she used her pc for gaming and then was later responsible for Elle geting shot, what was his response? "She'll understand I was doing my job.""
I don't mind about Garcia - that *was* stupid. But as to the Elle thing? Gideon did the EXACT same thing when Reid was killed by Raphael. Three times Gideon made decisions that ended up disasterously - the 6 killed pre-CM (which sent him on sabbatical); talking to the media (which got Elle shot); and interrupting the video downloads (which got Reid "killed"). After I realized that, I couldn't really find it in my heart to like his character much, although I had liked him when I first started watching the show.

He just seemed so smart, yet all these decisions he made always ended up being the wrong ones.

I NEVER understood why Elle blamed Hotch & not Gideon for breaking the "rules'.

I was also mad at Gideon for cutting the feed or whatever that nearly got Reid killed. Taunting the unsub sometimes worked, like in Broken Mirror, but when your agents lives are in your hands. Ya think he'd learned or at least been hypervigilant after being "responsible" ( I know Bale WAS responsible) for blowing up 6 former agents.

Although Gideon was never my favorite CM character, I continue to wonder where he is, and what he is doing. If this show were actually "real", I would hope that he stayed in touch with Reid, but since (on this unreal show) Reid never mentions hearing from Gideon, I have to wonder if he just dropped out of everyone's life.
(I have trouble sometimes, remembering that the characters do what they do because of the writers, not because they are real people.) I wish at some point we could know that Gideon is well and happy somewhere, and that he stays in touch with Reid.

I found this a few days ago. I really didn't like Gideon on the show. Now, I REALLY don't like him. He said he didn't know the show was going to be so violent. Did he not read the scripts? He just didn't show up to the season three table reading. That could have cost people their jobs. And why bring it up now?
Here's one of the many links to this subject.
