The One Where I'm Bittersweet  

Receptionist Kim may be getting fired tomorrow. In other news, I wrote my TV show within a fic fic that I had been working on. It's the sequel to Jack 'Pres' Preston, and I had a blast writing it. I also decided that I need to stop being so crabby about things I can do nothing about including the opinions of others and just love my show, my ships, and everything else I skip over. The popular kids are always going to be the popular kids and I'm always gonna be me. The beat goes on. And now the show.....

I dont even know where to start.....I fuckin loved this episode. Yes, this is my show....this is what I want to see. The girls gabbing about men, Penelope and the indescribable coffee and the shopping for Henry, Rossi in an undone bow tie *falls over*

Not much subtext but who cares, the door was opened so many times tonight for a couple of different ships....I'll just step through and see what's behind it.

Mmm, Morgan....."I am not sleeping with Reid". And Penelope calling dibs....priceless. The conversation with Kevin just made me laugh more. Did you see his hair? He'd just gotten to work? Did Penelope accidentally pack his brush in her stuff? He's so adorable....I love that kid.

Morgan and Garcia, I love them so much. Saying he would protect her everyday of his life and never let her change. Everyone needs a best friend like that. And making sure JJ was looking after her when he couldnt. They are just so damn cute. I love to see Morgan in "papa bear" mode. No one is going hurt Penelope on his watch....never again.

Great case, finally a little more on the pathology. I loved the continuity, coming back to the rabid bear and how it wasnt a bear at all. I wanted to see Hotch shove his fist down that dude's throat. He cant stand abusive parents, it brings out "ass whooping!Hotch" and I for one am always happy to see him.

The BAU in coats, I know you guys I am just as shocked as you. And casual!Hotch!!!! Dont worry, that's just me falling over again.

This episode gets a ten. A ten and a half, a fifteen. Murry and I loved it from start to finish. This is what I wanted all season instead of two, three, and four week breaks. I wanted teaminess and good stories and profiling and pathology and a little OMG, eww! You cant have a good Criminal Minds without at least one "OMG, eww!" Am I right?

Oh, and the world would be a better place with more redhead Garcia icons. IJS. The girl is beautiful. Her outfit at the end, I was in awe of her. I mean, I'm a total Prentiss fangirl, and she had on a skirt again this week, but Penelope, meow, she's hot.

I dont wanna go to bed and go to work tomorrow but I was spared a BS staff meeting this week so I think showing up and pickin my cotton is the least that I can do. What did you guys think of the episode? Oh yeah, and re-pimp for The Air I Breathe....my first leap into "almost, sorta, kinda" case fic.

I'm right on the floor next to you about Rossi in a tux. And when abusive-dad opened his pie-hole, I thought...'bad move, dude, you are so about to get 'Hotchalanched' it's not even funny.'

I loved them in casual clothes..Reid's version of casual now includes ties under his sweater vests. And his brush is in Garcia's bag with Kevin's.

I didn't see who wrote the ep, but I wonder if Eddie B. was having a little joke with the shippers. 5 people + 4 rooms = confusion!

Great episode, casual clothes, puffy coats, and a nice show-down at the OK Corral/ Marina! What's not to love?

--Or a whole lotta fun, depending on who you're asking ; )

Yeah, Reid was a little stringy haired in this ep but that's Reid for you.

I didnt see who wrote it either but they need to write a few more. Definitely.

We should've gotten a Hotchalanche.....that would've been epic.

I love that icon but I would like it more if it were textless. Garcia was just too beautiful tonight not to get many, many icons.

+1 to everything you said about the episode. Honestly, this is gonna be my second fav this season I think. (Unless they knock my socks off again in the next few weeks.) Everything from start to finish was great! THIS is my show. THIS is the team I love and wanna see every week. Hopefully Eddie boy will keep them this way from now on.

I did read your case fic...I loved it!! Just didn't have time to comment at the time. What I really love about the way you write Hotch and Prentiss is that I don't have to take sides. I always understand where each of them is coming from and WHY they do what they do. :)

I think what I like most about writing Hotch/Prentiss is sometimes, in the same situation they are both right and both wrong and they can admit...even if it takes a little prodding.

It was a phenomenal episode and I enjoyed it soooooo much. My problem with Season 5 is I will never know if I would've enjoyed it more if CBS would've been more consistent with playing episodes. If you come off a three week break and its not ZOMG!EPIC! people will notice immediately. There were so many three week breaks I noticed that a lot.

I think there are only two more episodes left. I honestly dont know how next week will be, the preview looked intriguing but didnt give us much. I'm excited to see.

I absolutely agree on the episode. It was fabulous. Since I like Rossi/Prentiss, I even feel like I got just a hint of subtext.

Rossi looked amazing. Hotch was rocking the angry look. Morgan was being awesome. It was fabulous.

The ladies' girl time at the beginning was straight up awesome.

I loathe Rossi/Prentiss. I'm sorry, I never want to be a hater but I'm just.....we all have one ship that we're just not into and it is that one for me, they are totally the Josh/Donna of CM for me.....and since you're not a West Wing fan you probably have no idea what that means. Moving on..... : )

This episode was fantastic, period. I was so happy about that. It had the perfect combination of team and case, this season it seems as if that's been a difficult balance to maintain. But with so many breaks the truth is I'm not able to gauge a true view of Season 5.

I know you hate them. That's okay.

It was. That was one of the better episodes this season. I think S5 will have to be picked up on DVD to get a better feel for it.
