Criminal Minds: Evolution episode 10 was the season finale that brought everything together while also setting up for Season 17. While we knew that the series would be continuing, it was a question of whether the team would rescue Rossi in time and take Eli Voit in.
After Voit takes his family to a remote cabin, it’s a question of where they will be able to find him. The team is able to communicate through the link that gave them access to Rossi. However, he will only talk to Deputy Director Bailey.
Bailey tries to get Voit to negotiate the release of his family to save Rossi, but then Voit mentions something about a Gold Star. This leads to a meeting between Rebecca and the Attorney General. There are two possible options, one to let Voit go or to go in and risk the lives of his family and Rossi.
