"Nameless, Faceless" (also known as "Faceless, Nameless") is the first episode, and season premiere, of Season Five of Criminal Minds.

Summary Edit

The BAU is assigned in their own hometown to profile a killer who is targeting an emergency room doctor and his son. Also, Prentiss stops by at Hotch's apartment to find that he is missing.

Guest Cast Edit

Bookend Quotes Edit

  • David Rossi: Karl Kraus said, "A weak man has doubts before a decision; a strong man has them afterwards."

Trivia Edit

  • This is the last episode of the entire series to have the theme song played over both the opening and closing credits. As of the following episode, a completely different song would be played over the closing credits.
  • Reid spent most of the episode sitting on a couch, since his actor Matthew Gray Gubler sustained a leg injury prior to filming. A stunt performer was used in the scene where Reid takes a bullet for Dr. Barton, which begins a minor story-arc where he is consequently using crutches for the first portion of the season in order to cover up his real-life leg injury as it heals.
