Would you like to make a comparison?
On February 19th Mr and Mrs Anderson was aired. This is what they did before, during and after that particular episode:
February 17 – You won’t believe how this week’s Unsubs spend a romantic night out (Picture of Rossi)
February 18 – Morgan Gives Garcia some dating advice on Wednesday’s new episode of Criminal Minds! (Picture of Morgan and Garcia)

Then, on February 26th Gabby was aired. And this is what they posted:

February 27 – Thomas Gibson directs an episode of Criminal minds, and gets punched in the face for it! Clip.. (and a picture of Hotch and Rossi interrogation the Unsub)
Then, Persuasion is aired, and it gets “What does Criminal minds star Kirsten Vangsness do in her free time?” and “What would Criminal minds be without Garcia?”
At this point, I don’t think anyone could argue this was just a coincidence.
Dr Reid should start looking for jobs right now...
I don't know, last season they gave Reid the whole Maeve storyline. Whatever my opinions on that (seriously, they don't even get one date?) they did make Reid the focus of at least one big storyline and let him emote all over the place for a few episodes. I don't feel like Reid was ignored last season. This year could be another question.
That story line was dumb, but aside from that, there were just a few seconds here and there, ending in Zugzwang, who, by the way, got a very lame ending with a bunch of useless FBI agents being outsmarted by an unsub...
And I believe Reid was ignored, because he was written as if he were Matthew Gubler, not Dr. Reid. The actor is there, sometimes, but he only rarely acts as the Dr. Reid anymore.
