In the Criminal Minds episode “Last Gasp,” the BAU meets in secret to investigate an UnSub (guest star Kevin Peck) who kidnaps and photographs young women. The team was specifically told not to investigate the case. So by doing so they are violating direct orders and have to proceed without the FBI’s assistant director of national security, Linda Barnes (Kim Rhodes), from finding out. If Barnes does find out she’ll shut down the BAU and everyone will be fired. They also have U.S. Senator Mayhew to deal with.
Senator Mayhew is portrayed by Drake Hogestyn. The actor from Fort Wayne, Indiana is best known for his roles as Roman Brady/John Black in the soap opera Days of Our Lives (since 1986!), and as Brian McFadden on the TV series Seven Brides for Seven Brothers with a young River Phoenix as Guthrie McFadden. Criminal Minds airs Wednesdays at 10pm on CBS.
