The One Where I'm Beat to Hell  
My doctor thinks it might be a good idea to get back on my medication and I think I agree.  I just havent been feeling much of anything lately and I know there are a variety of reasons for that but.......it might be time.  I wont fight it, I just wanna feel better, you know.  So, anyway...........

This case freaked me out.  It combined two of my greatest fears, being sliced and taxidermy.  Thanks Ed Bernero.

I dont have much to say.  Loved Derek's first case as Unit Chief.  Still getting tired of Rossi having all the lines of dialogue that cause doubt and cracks in unity.  Hotch did a good job stepping down.  Scene with Morgan, Prentiss, and Hotch made me smile.  Like the idea of Morgan being with someone.  Dont know how I feel about her yet, and for fucks sake I forgot her name that fast but I liked what I saw so far tonight.  Penelope is the cutest thing ever and Strauss is just Strauss.  Murry said she needed to buy a skirt that fit......I almost fell off the bed laughing.  Prentiss in red, mmmmmm yeah.  And I have an idea for a post-ep, I think.                                                                                                                         

That's it really.  I want to know what you guys think since I'm light on the conversation this week.  Come and engage me.........I'll make it worthwhile for ya ; )

I think overall it was a pretty good transition ep for Morgan. It should be interesting to see where they take the "he is a natural leader....what happens when we catch Foyette" bit.

Major squee over the H/P (look/smile/laugh)...still not sure what it was, other than totally adorable.

Can't wait to read your post ep...they are ever so awesome!

I think the same thing, he can do the job, there is no doubt about that. But I am sick and tired of it always being Rossi with the "but..." I initially loved his character but he has really been getting on my last nerve lately.

Yeah, I liked the look too. I kinda wish though that the team would have been less skeptical and more supportive of Morgan in the beginning of the episode. He doesnt want to be Hotch, he wants to save Hotch, that's why he's doing this. And the other stuff is just drama filler crap, which ticks me off.

Oh crap I wasn't paying attention to Garcia's skirt. Was it too tight or too loose? lol
SSA McGeek: Penelope....innocent lookmcgarrygirl78 on November 5th, 2009 04:16 am (UTC)
No, not Garcia's skirt, Strauss' skirt : D

The smile on Emilly's face when Hotch confronted Morgan about back-up was priceless.

and if you look at my entry, I have a plot bunny... Emily and Reid whine for an office.
SSA McGeek: Hotch and Prentiss....Starsky and Hotchmcgarrygirl78 on November 5th, 2009 11:24 am (UTC)
Yeah, it really was.

I saw your plot bunny, I'm sure someone could write a cute story.

Meds might not be a bad idea. Just until you get back on track. I worry so much about you, sweetness.

SSA McGeek: Emily Prentiss.....gazed uponmcgarrygirl78 on November 5th, 2009 11:26 am (UTC)
I totally appreciate that someone is out there worried. I mean surely more than one person is but what I mean is my family isnt much. But then again what else is new. One thing for sure, and this you can always guarantee, I will do everything in my power to get better. I have to wait til next month to see my doctor but I will dropping the bomb on her. Its been so long, its going to be a looooooooong appointment. And I will be discussing with her making it easier for me to get in and see her or my going elsewhere, even if I dont want to.

This episode contained the cutest ever H/P moment. They were like sharing an inside joke. Hotch smiled at at her. In the field.

SSA McGeek: Hotch and Prentiss....mirror imagemcgarrygirl78 on November 5th, 2009 03:47 pm (UTC)
I really, really hate that icon, Ana. I'm not trying to be bitchy but I just find it to be so demeaning to Prentiss. Totally, as if she only has that one thing to offer. Every time I see it, I cringe.

I really liked that scene, and that they sat next to each other on the plane even if it didnt really mean anything. It meant something to me : )

i make up for it with cunning and guilebibliothekara on November 5th, 2009 03:46 pm (UTC)
Uncle Dave *is* very fond of starting shit, isn't he? But that's been consistent since the start; I watched the "Lucky" rerun last night, with the whole bit involving Morgan, the priest, and Rossi being a nosy Nellie.

And I loved the little smile-exchange, even though what Hotch did, combined with our last glimpse of him, makes me fear for his mental state.
SSA McGeek: Hotch....the barrel of a gunmcgarrygirl78 on November 5th, 2009 03:50 pm (UTC)
No, I think any other agent would have done what Hotch did.....Morgan's done it a bunch of times, which was the joke. That man was ready to cut her eyes out. Waiting was not the thing to do. Now our last glimpse of him....yeah, I'm with you on worrying.

Yeah, Dave always seems to think he has a right to do things or say things and its getting irksome to me. I am one of those viewers who has loved Rossi from the start, being a Joe Mantegna fan, but he is really starting to peeve me recently. The team as a whole has enough shake-ups and troubles, he doesnt constantly need to be the voice of dissent or doubt.

So, I like the episode, but I don't like Tamara Barnes. I know it sound so silly, but I'm jealous of my Morgan. :P
I agree with you, Rossi has to shut up, he's getting boring with his 'but' opinions, nobody asked for them.
JJ was so cute, Emily was AWESOME and I love the exchange with Hotch at the end of the episode. He SMILED! *dances*
SSA McGeek: Hotch....I think very deeplymcgarrygirl78 on November 5th, 2009 04:28 pm (UTC)
I like Tamara, she has given me no reason not to, and his getting onvolved with her is against no rules, especially since it is clear that they are taking it slow. I know hoe much Morgan loves Garcia but he needs someone to get him, something to hold onto and be comfortable with....everyone does.

I dont know why everyone is so crazy about this. I mean I get that you dig Morgan but other people seemed to be peeved about it for reasons that make little to no sense.

I enjoyed the episode as a whole, I thought Morgan was great but I also thought Hotch was terrific in backig gracefuly out of his usual role and letting Morgan take the reins. That's why Rossi is getting on my nerves....right now they need to be "al for one, and one for all" and he's all like "Do you think he will step down when the timee comes?". First of all, he has been offered more than one UNit Chief position, he loves his job. Secondly, he is doing this under duress to keep his team together and to keep Hotch on it. Rossi is just being a real pain.

I take Wellbutrin and though I've never taken it by itself, it seems to be good - better than Remeron (I don't know what it's called in the US) that landed me in the hospital for 4 months back in 2005 with liver issues.

If they ever suggest Seroquel for anxiety or anything really, SAY NO~ I've tried so hard to get off this med and though I have cut down a lot over the past two years, I can't kick it completely because of the withdrawal results.

Would you like to hear about the other three meds I take to varying degrees? Probably not.

I'm with Shauna... I worry about you - you seem so quiet and down so much lately.
SSA McGeek: eating disordersmcgarrygirl78 on November 5th, 2009 09:54 pm (UTC)
I have been on a variety of drugs over the years but Wellbutrin worked the best....had the best results and the least amount of side effects.

I'll keep that 'no way in hell' medicine in mind.

I would say dont worry about me but I worry about you guys as well. Seriously though, I think my frazzled nerves will be smoothed by half just with my sister moving out this weekend. It's going to be peace at home, which I havent been getting at all. I am really looking forward to it.

I guess I'm in the minority but I seriously don't like Morgan as chief. I thought the show felt all off kilter and the team dynamic was just....weird...on this episode. Add me also to the list of those that don't like Tamara. She seems so fake to me...like she's trying to impress him.

I literally 'whoo hoo'd!!' at the scene with Prentiss and Hotch. That "What?" he threw over his shoulder at her and the look on his face (and hers for that matter) was simply priceless. To me it seemed like it was almost a glimpse of what Hotch was like when he was a new agent. I can't really explain it (which is why I don't write amazing fan fic stories like you do) but I adored that whole exchange between those two.

I have to say as much as we may not want to hear Rossi ask the questions he's asking, they need to be considered. I've also wondered if Morgan's ego will allow him to go back to being the subordinate once Hotch is free of Foyet. I think he will have a much harder time than Hotch will.

One last thing..why did Morgan choose the case and not JJ? Isn't that JJ's job?
SSA McGeek: Hotch and Prentiss...mcgarrygirl78mcgarrygirl78 on November 5th, 2009 11:43 pm (UTC)
Actually, it isnt JJ's job, its the Unit Chief's. She brings him the stuff and he makes the final approval. So that would be Derek's job now.

I just dont see why people are so up in arms about this Morgan thing....I think its because of Shemar's leg injury and nothing more. As for Tamara, she may be trying to impress him as that is typically what you do when you dig a dude and want him to dig you too.

I just dont know what the problem is, I mean honestly its a good thing, a different dynamic, a way to see why every team wants Derek as their leader and to see all that Hotch and Gideon have taught him....I dont see it as something to get up in arms about. Rossi just seems like an ass to me lately but thing is we all see something different when we watch, I know that for sure.

The Hotch/Prentiss thing was cute, I needed some subtext for as creepy as that episode was.
