“Criminal Minds” Season 9 Episode 22 “Fatal” aired on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at 10:00 p.m. on CBS. A psychopath fascinated with Greek mythology was on the loose. He poisoned his victims with arsenic. Read on to find out more about MNG’s “Criminal Minds” recap of Season 9 Episode 22 “Fatal.”

Previously on “Criminal minds” (“Fatal” Season 9 Episode 22), the BAU team traveled to Long Beach, California to investigate about arsenic poisoning. When they arrived in the area, the killer took his third victim. They meet Janice. She received a death threat and called the police to report it. She thought that the neighbour kids were pulling a prank on her. But when the officer told her to check her doors and windows, here came the killer, strangling Janice to death using a twine.

Bill just received the bad news. He had cancer and only had a few months more to live. He was mad at the world. In a coffee shop, he saw happy people lining up. Well, yeah, it sometimes pissed others to see happy people while they just received some bad news. This went the same for Bill. That was probably why he poisoned and strangled his victims.

Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) figured out that the fifth victim would probably be residing outside the area and only bought her cup of double soy latte while Bill was pissed. When the fifth victim was identified, the team wasted no time to save her. She had pizza delivered and did not hear her phone ringing. The FBI and police arrived. She had a death note, but arsenic could not be found in her home.

Bill had a sad childhood with Greek mythology to keep him company. When he was six, he went camping with a friend. Snow started to fall, and they split to find for help. Bill survived but his friend did not. People blamed him for his friend’s demise. While in the hospital, his teacher gave him a Greek mythology book with the picture of the Labyrinth. It reminded Bill of his experience with his friend. He saw himself as Theseus because he was able to escape.

Bill was having a drink with Wick to celebrate his finally being able to fulfill his dream of going to Greece. Twenty years ago, Bill was set to travel to Greece, when Wick got him drunk the night before and missed the shuttle. He blamed Wick for it. It was payback time for Bill as he put arsenic in Wick’s drink. While drinking, Bill told Wick everything—his illness, how he saw happy people when he just got the worst news, and more importantly, the poison on his drink. When JJ (AJ Cook) and Morgan (Shemar Moore) arrived, they informed Bill that he should be thankful that he missed the shuttle two decades ago because that same shuttle crashed. He should be thankful to Wick though.
