The One With the Beyonce Song at the End  
Well, here we go kiddies.  Enjoy........

Where to start......first of all, I flippin loved this episode.  I was all ready for oh noes, Reid is all victimized and thank you very much for not quite making it that way.  Though shouldnt the kid know from experience not to be wandering off alone, that's what got his ass kicked the last time.

--Poor JJ.  Does anyone on the planet have bigger weepy eyes than AJ Cook?  I am telling you now the answer is no.

--Prentiss just wanting to warn people.  She is so like that, information is important.  But she is a logical soul and most of the masses are not so it is totally possible to be right and wrong in the same breath.  Rossi of course was the voice of reason, I love how he apologized for "Emily-ing" her.  So cute.

--Damn Derek looked good in that grey button down shirt.  I admit I was drooling.  You were too, admit it.

--Garcia talking about worrying every time they go out there and just wanting to get her babies home safe.....I totally choked up.

--ROSSI!!!!!!!!!!  For the Italian toast before swallowing the pills and being there for Emily and using the term "Alpha males".  For just being so damn Rossi.  I cant get enough of the man.

--Poor Reid, but you knew that.  I loved that he wanted to leave a message for his mom, about how he was proud to be her son.  Aw, it was so sweet.  Yeah, I choked up on that part too.  And he solved the case so that should make all the Reid fangirls happy.  And he lived, and wanted Jell-O.  There is always room for Jell-O people.

--The Unsub was sufficiently nutty for me.  So nutty he didnt see himself getting the total shaft.  I kinda thought it was a gag but then wasnt sure and I like that feeling.  I like the whole "omg, what's next?" feeling of this ep, like could shit get worse.  I mean it totally could and as much as I loved the 'who knows' atmosphere I also loved the containment of it as well.  Dont know if that makes sense but its true.

--Hotch calling Jack at the end.  He always glows whenever he talks about him, to him, or looks at him and I love that.  It just gives me butterflies in my stomach.  I was so glad he was up late and he got to talk to him, it was so damn sweet and the perfect note to end on.  They all care about their family, including their BAU family, but they have to put the job first and sometimes it does suck.  But Prentiss knows she will lie again next time and Morgan knows no matter what they go down together and JJ knows that it was probably better that she didnt reach Will.  I sat on my hands waiting to see who was going to break protocol first and just say something.  I liked that tension, I liked all the tension.  I liked Reid telling Morgan he was going to get naked and Morgan saying see you later.  I loved Penelope not having a glittery nickname for Reid because she was just scared.  Damn I definitely loved Prentiss in black.  Great ep and now Murry and I are seriously anxious for next week.

--Also, this damn episode was a shippers' paradise, unless you are a Hotch/Prentiss shipper of course.  I promised myself I would never become one of those people who doesnt like an episode or gets all damn pouty cuz my ship didnt get their subtextual moment in time and I never will be, but damn Ed, a little sumthin sumthin would have killed you.  Luckily, I have an active imagination and was able to work out my own shit.  It's amazing what a smart gal can do with 35 seconds of footage these days.  Well hell there is always next week.......I get two hours of opportunity. It looks like it is going to be hella good.  Who's excited.....I am so excited.                                                                                                                           

Somehow Murry and I got to talking about Strauss after the ep was over and the whole Hotch will never rise above the BAU thing from Season 3 and then Murry is all like "she doesnt know him very well", which made me start singing "You must not know bout me, you must not know bout me", which is how I came up with the title of this post.  Not that anyone cared and you probably had to be there but we were laughing our asses off and I just love those moments.  Who knew a show about a ragtag group of FBI agents hunting nuts would bring a mother and daughter together like Criminal Minds has done for us.........as if I needed more reason to love Ed Bernero.

I know I'm repeating myself when I squee almost every week 'OMG! ROSSI!!!' but it's true. This man is awesome.

I also really liked the episode (although I am a Reid-fangirl I thought he got enough screentime this season and wouldn't have been to fond of another completely Reid-centric ep) and the end was so sweet. And Garcia. And actually everybody.

I dont think there is a such thing as too much squeeage when David Rossi is the subject....so you're cool.

I thought it was an amazing ep even though I am totally not a Reid fangirl and feel we have definitely gotten too much of him this season just comparing to all the other characters. Anyhoo, that matters little because it was a fantastic ensemble episode as well, the family really stuck together, and I thought it was a great lead-in to the end of the season. I am excited to see what we get.

Even I was worried that it might be, "oh look, we're torturing Reid again" and was happy it wasn't. I was also extremely happy that we got to witness part of his decontamination shower. :D
There were tons of cute team-y moments, weren't there? It was great.

It was a great episode with the right dose of team love and intrigue to make me all kinds of happy. I'm glad Reid kept his clothes on though : )

"I promised myself I would never become one of those people who doesnt like an episode or gets all damn pouty cuz my ship didnt get their subtextual moment in time" "Luckily, I have an active imagination and was able to work out my own shit. It's amazing what a smart gal can do with 35 seconds of footage these days" - Amen Sister!!! Wow, this is me in an absolute nutshell, I've got shippy tunnel vision or something. I'm glad I'm not the only crazy cat that can pull true, devoted H/P love out of their....hat.
