|~ Lachlan McDermott after kidnapping Ian Doyle's son, Declan.|
Lachlan McDermott is the secondary antagonist of the Criminal Minds episode "It Takes a Village". He is an Irish gangster who kidnaps the son of terrorist Ian Doyle as revenge for Doyle killing his brother.
He was portrayed by Robin Atkin Downes, who also portrayed Mumm-Ra in the rebooted ThunderCats series, Falcon Graves in the rebooted DuckTales series, Medic in Team Fortress 2, Broseph Chillaxton in Regular Show, Deathstroke in Beware the Batman, and the Riddler in Batman: The Enemy Within, Doomsday in the DC Extended Universe, and the Prophet of Regret in Halo 2.
McDermott is the leader of a powerful Irish crime family, who for generations have been at war with the rival Doyle crime family. When Ian Doyle, a member of the latter crime family and an Irish Republican Army (IRA) terrorist, killed McDermott's younger brother Jimmy, McDermott swore revenge.
Years later, McDermott conspired with Doyle's former lover Chloe Donaghy to kidnap Declan, her son with Doyle, to inflict upon him the pain of losing a loved one before ultimately killing him.
"It Takes a Village"
Donaghy and McDermott's henchman Richard Gerace kidnap Declan after killing his foster family; as she had secretly planned with McDermott, Gerace then kills Gerace to eliminate him as a potential liability. She then meets with McDermott on his private jet with a bound and gagged Declan in tow. She presses McDermott to keep up his end of the bargain to buy Declan from her to then sell on the black market, so as to bring Doyle out of hiding when he inevitably tracks the boy down.
Before they can take off, however, the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) shows up on the tarmac with a captured Doyle in tow, offering to trade him for Declan. McDermott is receptive to the deal, but Donaghy does not want to give her son up, leading to a struggle between them in which McDermott shoots Donaghy in the chest.
As McDermott leads Declan onto the tarmac to make the trade, however, a badly wounded Donaghy emerges from the plane and shoots both him and Doyle, killing them, before she herself is shot dead by BAU agent Spencer Reid.
