In some arias, I just don't know if he is evil or not. He builds trust with the criminal in a way that I cannot see if he is evil or not, and then I find out that he is just bringing the criminal to reality by creating a rapport, confronting him or her to the situation, and there comes the confession.

I feel that Goren is very good too. When he has been sympathetic with a suspect I've always felt it was a means to an end...a confession.
Something I have wondered about is why do "the guys upstairs" question his sanity? As Angua stated above, Goren IS unorthodox, but would that make people think he is crazy? Is it because his mom had schizophrenia? He does go "outside the box" ("Untethered") and he breaks rules ("Loyalty"), but why would that make people think he is insane? Lots of people disregard authority figures. That makes them insubordinate. Not mentally ill! Also, I would think that his success rate would make his superiors overlook his unusual behaviors like sniffing everything and dancing with suspects ("Pas de Deux")! I've just felt like this is a loose end since I don't get the "Goren is insane" idea. Maybe the therapy sessions in season 10 will provide some answers. Have any of y'all thought about this?
I’m shifting the emphasis and predicting what I think we will see in Season Ten.
As this is the final season, we’ll see a lot of re-treading the early years. The show will focus on -
plenty of head and body bends
lots of sniffing dead bodies
Goren’s folder very much on display
Eames and Goren going undercover
prolonged arias in the closing scenes
Going back to basics is no bad thing as it was the early years that captured the show’s audience and it would be fitting for it to end as it started. I do know that we have seen all the above in one form or another throughout the seasons but, my point is, that there will be particular focus on what made the Goren character watchable.
The acrobatics will be more tempered as Vincent doesn’t look (from promos) as "fit" as he was in Season One. Much easier to climb onto the bonnet of a car than to get up and balance on a church pew.
My list above is not extant and I appreciate that you can’t fully recover old ground, but I do think we will see a glut of nods/references to the early years.
The only major difference I think is that we will also see the Eames character more high-profile as in being a more equal partner to Goren. By this I mean actually fitting the clues of some crimes together before Goren, but he will always be the lead in the interrogation room. I think it would be too radical if it were vice-versa in the arias - pity but I like to think I may be wrong.
