Her constant complaining about it got old a long time ago. The idea that this Hotch was really one of the hitmen in a plastic Hotch mask is too freaking ridiculous to contemplate. One of these days we're going to have an unsub who didn't get the Barbie Dream House she coveted as a child so she killed a bunch of real estate agents when she got older. Don't meet a new date in a cemetery in the middle of the night. On one hand, the old man should have known better. Hotch being an imposter or Hotch under the influence of Mr.
David Rossi comes out of retirement to help the the Behavioral Analysis Unit lead by Aaron Hotchner, a family man who's able to gain people's trust and unlock their secrets. How would a request for that meeting place not set off alarms for the woman? I wonder if the unsub bothered to wipe his prints off of things or if they will turn out to be all over the crime scene. I hope ratings will agree with me and I'm half sure of it. A true fan of the series can't be so glibly defined. Overnight ratings has this episode getting a 1. I did like seeing Rossi playing cards with Garcia. Another example of a stupid person.
It's not like he left for good. Scratch would be too ridiculous for this show. I saw one yesterday I hadn't seen before and while it was Reid-lite, what Reid there was was good Reid. But I still consider myself a true fan even though when I do watch now it is only for Reid and in the small hope we get a stand out episode. ChillFam xD They're not going to calm down.
Hmm, could this be a Xmas miracle? Was Matthew's absence designated to be three full episodes? It will be interesting to see the final ratings. Just thought I'd mention that. I just thought it was ridiculous that she had to be spirited out of Quantico. It did look sort of creepy, but still, it seems a little hard to believe that one incident would have traumatized the kid so much. Since I've mentioned that I had elderly friends, I've seen this sort of thing happen-- where one is ill and the other knows they will be left behind. I don't like that people won't give episodes a chance because a certain character won't be in it or they heard it's supposed to be a morgan centric, jj centric, garcia centric etc. It seemed like Hotch and Rossi assumed the Reid role for providing relevant intellectual information, though thankfully Rossi mentioned that he called Reid to get the information he was giving.
Granted, okay, that sounds like a nice cliffhanger for the winter finale. It would have been better to have not met in a dark cemetery in the first place. Overnight ratings has this episode getting a 1. I felt there was the right level of warmth from Rossi. Nothing new to see here. He's literally back next episode. Didn't care for any of them but really really hated Awake.
Unsub's story about the nursing home is booooring at first. So, I was already expecting something sinister to happen. Honestly, it never even occurred to me that it wasn't Hotch - he was acting a bit mysterious, but I assumed that was for suspense. Yes I am cynical and disillusioned about the show I love, and yes even with the change in the whole tenor of the show there are still the occasional episodes that give glimpses of the great show it was. Because i'm sure that the ratings won't drop or actually rather rise in the long term.
Also on the team are Emily Prentiss, the daughter of an ambassador and a surprise addition that neither Hotchner or Gideon signed off on; Derek Morgan, an expert in obsessional crimes; Dr. So much for Garcia not being annoying. . So far, the Morpheus one is the only one I'm even remotely interested in watching again. I did like the way they filmed it so you could hear the unsub and the old man speaking the lines sort of at the same time.
They've lost over 3 million loyal!! I did like that Bruce wrote some respectful absent Reid scenes unlike Kim, who just wrote snarky, disrespectful stuff, encouraging us to laugh at him. There is another young female victim who worked at the same restaurant as the first one. Edited December 10, 2015 by Guesswht. How are they going to possibly segue from being on the verge of taking down the hitman network, to Reid going on one of the worst dates in history? I'm just not as excited to see 'new' episodes when they won't come anywhere as close qualitywise as some of the reruns. I actually liked the scene with Rossi and Garcia playing poker.
As for me, my eyes wander a bit lower. The last year was terrible, yes. The kitty blouse that the former medical experimentation club member wore, though, was awesome. Saying she was going to mute them because the insect thing was too icky. I like that Rossi called Reid to ask for info on stuff. I kept wishing someone would give her a jacket or something to keep her warm.
The older couple didn't appeal to me either. Richard or Robert is rather vague-- and it make sense that the cat-shirt lady didn't remember the name. It never occurred to me that it was anything but melodramatic. Other things that bugged: as soon as I saw the aquarium, I knew that at some point the unsub would smash it in anger and frustration. Oh wait, now he's gone full rage monster and is pointlessly beating a corpse.
