The One Where Murry Asked Me to Mute the Commercials  
OK people, you know what time it is.  My show was back tonight and I was a raging insane fangirl.....I thought my head was going to pop off at like 8:50 I was so excited.  Lets get to it , shall we?  Oh but first, for the 3 or 4 Gideon/Prentiss shippers in the universe, Going is up at lairofthemuses

I dont know what to think right now.  I wasnt super duper overly impressed though it had some good moments.  I think the case they were working on was kinda weak but I have always been a fan of Christoperher Cousins.  hell yes I love that it was Prentiss who went after Hotch and was just not going to shake feeling that something was wrong.  I almost lost it when I thought she was goign to pull keys out of her pocket but took out her cell phone instead.  But she got emotioanlly whipped.  Hotch and then Reid.....girlie needs a vacation.  She sat in his hospital room and showed love and concern for him but she always does.  Still, she could have taken his hand or touched his face or given some indication that she was more than just some chick he worked with.  I dont know, I dont want to look a gift horse in the mouth but once again they had the opportunity to at least show a friendship between the two of them and failed.

Um, Haley can go away now, please thank you.  I dont like her, I dont like Hotch feeling he owes her anything and I dont like her blaming Hotch.  She didnt have to stay married to him, she didnt have to have a kid with him, she is a family member of a federal agent...........this shit comes with the territory.  She acted like she was down for all that then drank the Kool aid and went evil.  Jack however is the most adorable kid on the planet and finally seeing him with Hotch again filled me with squee.

I feel so cheated on Hotch torture.  I mean is he going to have PTSD?  Are we going to see more flashbacks and more pain over several episodes?  I hope so cuz if not this is like sex without orgasm, you know metaphorically speaking.  I wanted more, especially since they hyped it like it was going to be the shit........and it wasnt.  It really wasnt.  If it was all about Haley and Jack, I know he had to take Hotch down to get them but what was the point of all the stab wounds....he's just going to go back to hunting him.  If he went after Unsubs with a busted ear and possible internal injuries a few stab wounds cant take down our boy.

Good way of getting Reid on crutches.  Hmm, yeah, that's all I have to say about that.  Loved the last scene with Hotch and Rossi, loved the quiet intensity of it, loved the bromance.  The moment between those two is what I wanted for Hotch and Prentiss......understanding, friendship, even love.  Something other than what I got.  Oh God, I think I might be a Hotch/Rossi shipper now.  Ugh *facepalm*  I love me some Rossi though, there is no denying that.

All in all, I think I give it a 7.5 out of 10.  Could have been better but you know what, my show is back and I look forward ot the next 21 episodes with pure joy.  I just hope we dont have to see much more of Haley rudeness and Hotch guilt.  I am really not digging that in the least.                                                                                                                          

Come in, discuss, what did you think?  Agree?  Disagree?  Just happy the new season started and the possibilities are endless for insanity, subtext, tackling, and Garcia banter?  Talk to me.

I felt it was over-hyped, too. It was a good episode but I wasn't going "OMG!" nearly as much as I had hoped. 7 is what I would rate it.

During Mayhem last season I was on my feet for the whole hour, too much of a bundle of energy to even sit down. Needless to say it wasnt the same for this one. Glad my show is back for sure but it could have been better. Onward and upward I guess.

Yeah, I'm just glad it's back and that Hotch isn't dead!
SSA McGeek: Gideon....the wise onemcgarrygirl78 on September 24th, 2009 03:24 am (UTC)
I am definitely glad he's not dead....that would have sucked.

Next week's episode looks interesting though, not that they give you much but still.

I see your Gideon icon and raise you another ; )

And here, I thought you'd be all excited by the fact that Prentiss called "It's Emily" through the door - he always calls her "Prentiss" at work, that we've seen, doesn't he? (or am I a really sucky H/P shipper who can't remember stuff?). The whole bit with her going to the apartment like she'd been there before was nice.

But, yeah, I gotta agree. Overhyped. Not horrible, but really not how I thought they'd deal with all they set out to do.

Can I ask where you stand on the whole Foyette/impotence threat issue? I was freaking out because I thought he mutilated Hotch *ahem* down there (which, seriously, unmitigated trauma!), but now other people are saying that he was sexually assaulted, or that nothing at all happened... I'm so confused!
SSA McGeek: Don't Emily Memcgarrygirl78 on September 24th, 2009 10:41 am (UTC)
He called her Emily once, in a late season 4 episode in the conference room and I didnt like it....I like that he calls her Prentiss at work. You know what, maybe when I watch it again I will see more subtext and such but I was really so busy waiting for the action that never happened to happen, I was too busy to get excited. I mean, Hotch and Prentiss had their moments and I am so glad shippers seem to be excited but I still dont think that wall was broken. Sure, Prentiss was all loving and concerned, that is her nature, but Hotch didnt show the feeling with her that he showed with Haley or even Rossi at the end. I have never had a problem stating canonly it can be shown she had feelings for him....I just wanted some reciprocity.

I dont think Foyet touched him down there. Some people were talking about "implied" rape and I was leaning that way as well but Foyet's behavior and profile show him to kinda have a thing for teenage girls so I still dont even get why he was so "orgasmic" over fucking up Hotch's life. I know, I know, power and all and holding shit over Hotch because he didnt take the deal but you know what, get a new storyline.....he's a serial killer, let him be a serial killer. But I did love Rossi and his "we're going to get him" attitude. They better because they didnt satisfy with this storyline so I for one dont mind seeing it end.

I really thought Emily was going to pull out keys!!!! I was so ticked when she didn't. HALEY SUCKS. That is all.

That scene was so calculated, Bernero had to do that on purpose. Wouldnt it have rocked though? I would have died. It would have made up for other disappointments last night.

Haley is evil!
