The One Where Murry Thought She Saw a Crackhead  

OMG, work today was insane and I have to go to court at 8:45 tomorrow morning. Not fun you guys. So lets talk about something that makes me happy. We all know what that is.....

I dont even know where to start, I would go so far as to say that this is one of the best episodes of the season. It was practically perfect in every way.

--Sarah, who came in whenever a local child was abducted. I may be losing my touch but I surely didnt see her cracking the case or her kid still being alive no matter how much I wanted it.

--Henry is 17 months, somebody help me with some math.

--Awkward Reid. Open mouth, insert foot. Then turn around and say practically the best thing of the episode. Ahh Reid.

--Damn Morgan looked good in that suit. I just love him, I love his profiling skills, I love that he asks the tough questions when others in the room might not want to.

--Garcia still has red hair and she was wrong. She was probably pretty glad she was since she solved the case. Actually a lot of people got together and solved this case.

--Quiet, observant leader Hotch FTW!!!!

--Rossi, also quiet in this episode but still looking like you better not fuck with him or his team.

--Prentiss in all black. OMG, fuck she is hot. And excellent at her job and not to be fucked with.

This episode was so tense, I was expecting someone to lose it at any moment. When Charlie shot the Unsub, Murry and I both jumped. You wanted it but damn, she didnt even get her sentence out and the kid didnt blink. He didnt think or wonder or question, he just shot that bitch and I could admit that I whooped a little.

That diversion was an excellent ruse. The only thing that really bothered me is why? They didnt get into the pathology, something that has been missing from several episodes this season, or too quickly explained away. Why eight years old? Why didnt gender matter? Where did the creamatorium come into play? Was it the wife or the husband who started it? Were there kids before Charlie? People dont get crazy in their 50s you know.

Bud Cort? Really Ed. OMG, its Harold! Harold is a damn Unsub? No, no, no. No!!!! But I love Ed too because man was it sexy to see Hotch kick in that door, and take the steps two at a time. And talk on the phone to Prentiss, and sit next to her in the conference room. Subtext? Not quite, but it was vibes and these days shippers will take vibes. Speaking of sexy, Rossi pulling that gun off his hip was really hot. I'm sure I'm not the only one who thought so.

I loved this episode. Welcome back show. I'm a happy fangirl.

Come on in. Discuss, discuss, discuss. This is the 1st Wednesday Criminal Minds is back since I started my go to bed at a decent hour routine. Lets see how that goes tonight.

--Henry is 17 months, somebody help me with some math.

He was born in November a season ago. That would be one year plus 4 months. They're only off by a month. *G*

I thought that was strange too. You would think that not only the parents would've mentioned it but also the people they interviewed at the various crime scenes. That was a total facepalm.

Arent they all so damn beautiful....it makes me crazy and happy all in the same breath. Hotch is still too thin but looked good in this episode too, as did Rossi and Garcia...even Reid. I love my cast : )

I didnt even notice the music, I was holding my breath practically the whole hour.

This one is now my second fav episode of the season. But I still have one question...is Morgan still in charge? Cause he was sure bossing them around at the beginning of the episode. LOL...

I know what you mean about the why....I want an explanation as to why these crazy ass old people were stealing kids and then putting them in a crematorium. And why did Charlie live and the others die?

Ditto on whooping when Charlie shot that bitch. She was just about to say "You've got to be kidding me!" and he didn't even let her get it out. LMAO! Bang bitch!

All in all a great welcome back. :) And MGG did a good job on his directorial debut!!

Morgan is clearly second in command. There is not a lot of tiem to waste in a kidnapping case, he was just doing his job.

There were definitely things that were not explained, lots of things. But you were so distracted by the pacing, which had to be quick in a kidnapping case that you didnt even think about that until afterward.

It was a great return and I'm anxious for more. Oh, and did you see Ed once again stick Hotch and Prentiss together to go over the crime scene, playing husband and wife and still manage not to touch? It's so past ridiculous now, I just have to laugh.

what a fantastic episode!

I think what I most loved was how each profiler was showcased so awesomely, and I will agree with everyone above, on a superficial level the cast looked amazing as well! (mgg definitely loves his costars)

the storyline was one of the best this season, I was on the edge of my seat, in tears, and happy (when the kid shot the old lady)...all I could ask for in an hour of tv.

I think my favorite parts, unsurprisingly, were Emily and Hotch reenacting the abduction, and Morgan/Em at the unsubs house....(Paget cracked me up the way she questioned him)

So happy that we actually get a new ep next week as well...I am tired of all these breaks in the schedule

It really was fantastic, both in content and in total superficial ways. Those were two of my favorite parts as well, along with JJ, Emily, and Garcia displaying their Charlie's Angels-esque skills. Hotch and Prentiss on the phone,
"Is he on to you?"
"You better believe it."

I liked the comfort of the conversation, like they talk a lot even if Ed wants to be mean and not let us see it.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who wondered 'why did they kidnap the kids in the first place'? Unless it was just that the creepy old lady was just crazy and hubby didn't want to lose her. Since he was a few bricks shy of a load too.

It was nice to see JJ get a chance to shine. She may not be technically a 'profiler' but she knows what she knows..and all her internal 'mom alarms' were going off loud and clear. Hotch looked a lot better than the last time we saw him..not so tired or pasty faced. If possible, Morgan looks hotter in a dress shirt and jacket than he does in a T-shirt!

I loved the whole thing, even though I was pretty tired when I watched it. I was afraid the old lady was going to get away with the kids and that they would never find them. I really was hoping that the kids would just push her into the crematorium. But I'm glad Charlie/David had the strength to shoot her.
And a new one next week...and I have that day off! *twirls*

Yeah, I had a problem with getting no "why". No matter how good the episode was, and I think because of how good it was, I see that glaring hole.

Murry thought the same thing about the creamatorium. When she turned her back, Murry said "She's obviously never read Hansel and Gretel".

I am so glad Hotch is looking better, he still needs to gain some weight but he looked healthier last night. And Derek was just edible in that suit. The man even has gorgeous eyebrows. Trufaz!

Yay for new episodes and definitely yay for the day off!
