Criminal Minds Clip: Prentiss' "Death" and its Aftermath

by at . Comments

"Psychoanalyst Walter Langer wrote: People will believe a big lie sooner than a little one. And if you repeat it frequently enough, people will sooner than later believe it." - J.J.

With these words, the final scene of last night's powerful and controversial episode of Criminal Minds drew to a close (follow the link for TV Fanatic's review of "Lauren"). 

Whatever you think of Prentiss' open-ended, untimely exit and CBS' casting decisions, the directorial efforts of Matthew Gray Gubler (Reid) cannot be praised enough.

The score (by cellist Jen Kuhn) also makes this scene worth a second look:

Criminal Minds Quotes

Hotch: A sniper can wait up to 72 hours without sleeping.
Mays: Seriously?
Rossi: That's part of their training. They can stay awake for 72 hours and remain completely focused on their target.
Mays: How?
Hotch: By using a mental exercise called "fantasy integration". A sniper creates a scenarios involving a target that keeps that person at the forefront of their mind.
Morgan: Often they'll imagine a place where they're with the target, doing something together that takes time. For example, building a car.
JJ: For some, the fantasy begins the minute they're assigned a target. Then nothing will distract them.

Thomas Merton once wrote "Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone. We find it with another."
