Does anyone know what JJ says to Hotch in the end ?
Could she have told Hotch the truth ?
Great episode! It definitely had the feeling of a finale, I teared up when she was asking Morgan to let her go and then cried even harder when JJ came out to the group & during her funeral. JJ was one of my favorite characters & mixed perfectly with the team, it was hard enough having her leave that I contemplated not watching, but now Prentiss too is gone and I'm wondering what they heck they are thinking. I don't dislike Seaver, she just isn't JJ or Emily, nor does she have the chemistry required to be with the team IMO. I will continue to watch half b/c despite 2 of my favs going away I love the show and half b/c I need to know if it can survive without the 2 characters.
I agreed with your review, except one thing. The funeral didn't seem out of place to me at all. The whole goal of being placed into relocation/witness protection is to have Doyle & any of his associates believe that she is dead. Which means no one else including the team can know the truth & they
The reviewer mentioned that he didn't necessarily like the cliffhanger ending with Prentiss apparently still alive and going undercover again (with the fact that they went so far as to even have a funeral for Prentiss). But it is definitely a way for their to be closure for the other characters (so that the show can go on), but this way there is also an opening to possibly bring Prentiss back at some point. It's reminiscent of Law and Order: SVU, when ADA Cabot (played by Stephanie March), was apparently killed. They had a funeral for her too (though Benson and Stabler learned different in the same episode). But everyone else believed she was dead (giving necessary closure), but then they brought her character back later on...albeit several years later...
Personally, I loved everything about this episode EXCEPT that Prentiss is gone and of course so is J.J. No offense to Seaver, she just doesn't fit. Maybe that will change as we get more used to her, but getting rid of Prentiss and
The show was excellent but prentiss needs to come back
I agree with everyone that last night's episode was great, and that both JJ and Prentiss will be missed.
However, I disagree with the review on the ending being 'out of place.' Obviously Ian Doyle escaped before Morgan got there and he'll want to track down Prentiss again since she's the only connection he has to his son.
Prentiss probably goes into some sort of witness protection deal, and faking her death was necessary. The only way to make it convincing is if very few people know the truth, and I'm guessing only JJ knows Prentiss is still alive. Not having a funeral would have been out-of-place, and Doyle probably had some minion observing it.
I agree with everybody that the show last night was excellent. I didn't see that Doyle got away, they just didn't show that. I knew Prentis didn't kill the boy, that is not what she does. I cried at the hospital and the funeral. MGG did a fine job last night directing and acting. I loved Garcia's message to Emily. I hope they can make Seaver better, along with everyone else I don't like her. But I will give her a chance.
Well,I know that Emily is alive,because it showed her thumb in the last scene. I know her hands anywhere.Maybe the new girl is a plant by either the good guy's or the one's that tried to take Emily out!
I love Criminal Minds, but please bring our two girls back, send the other girl home and leave the show alone. Last night was great but Emily needs to come back and so does JJ. There's unfinished business with the bad guy. As for the spin off....it's just not there. The cast just doesn't seem to interact with each other and that's half of what makes a good show. You just can't get a personal feeling about them like you can with the cast on the original show.
Great Episode and Storyline in general. Yeah, I'm not too fond of the new girl.....No Spunk! She always seems to be scared holding a victims posture that isn't a believable addition to the Team. I don't think Hotch or the BAU would have ever hired her, therefore CBS shouldn't have either.
I have to say I've never felt the need to post on any shows before, but I guess there's a first time for everything and this is the one. I am so dissapointed in losing Emely, she was one of the strongest characters, and one of the most humble. She wasn't dumb, as someone put it by her having to explain a lot of things, she was humble, and wanted to be accurate. JJ....I miss her very much also! I think future shows are going to be dissapointing from now on with now both of these ladies gone.
Good Luck Emely, we'll miss you GREATLY!
I was unhappy with the 'death' of Emily, to say the least. Not having followed along, I wasn't aware of tension on the set, I do hope if Paget is in something else, I can find it! I appreciate that changes are important, but i am never happy with killing someone off, and especially, as has been said, someone so strong to the integrity of the show. I have watched from day one, and love the growth of the characters.
I don't have a problem with the new girl, i can see potential for her, but if she's going to stay, they need to mature her faster, grow her up, or the show will lose the edge it has had for so long.
I do agree, i knew something was up when Reid didn't get to see Emily - dead giveaway!
On another note - I am not happy with the spinoff - it's too campy and cheesy - i don't like the lead guy - he's too much in the lead, and everything is too simple minded, yet you feel like he's got this insight he shouldn't be able to have given the lack of info. I probably won't contin
Screw CBS. I haven't watched since JJ left, and the new female they forced on is crap, just crap. They mess with the veteran female actresses and yet the men are untouched. I still say Rossi is expendable, and should have been dismissed. The team held their own succesfully before he showed up.
It was such a good episode fromt he first 10 minutes it had my attention to the very end. I am so mad they got rid of JJ and emily especially when they found such a cast with good chemistry they go mess it all up..but I am so glad they left both parts open for the actresses to reprise them. I just can't see how they can get any better now or top that....
Last night episode was awesome,a little sad,i really liked Emily and JJ I hope they bring them back...I knew when JJ talked to Hotch after they said that Emily was dead,I knew she wasnt because Doyle got away..this story line is not over yet,I think we will see Emily again,because there is some unfinished businees.all in all they better not even think of taking anyone else out
I thougvht the show was excellent last night. It was so great to see J.J. back on the show (I miss her sooo much!) I am very sad to see Prentiss' charater leave the show. I thought she was a great replacement for "what's her name" from 5 years ago!! She will be sorely missed!!
they had to go as far as the funeral because they want to make everyone think she is dead if the didnt have a funeral it would have been suspisous and pepole would have still kept looking for her to kill her but know its like hey you look ike someone who just died(coinsidence) it all does make since when u think about it
The Twitter accounts of the cast members of Criminal Minds are: @pagetpaget @ajcookofficial @Vangsness @Gibsonthomas @GUBLERNATION @JoeMantegna @RachelNichols1. Shemar Moore doesn't have an account. The 2 makeup artists of the show are also on Twitter and they tweet a lot of cast pics @annafleiner @Dayne9165.
It's so sad how Prentiss left the show.... The new replacement for prentiss is not close at all. I think that the network is trying to get rid of the show entirely... I mean, I bet reid is next in line because of his headaches. Then someone else is going to leave. Even if the show doesnt end, if they dont stop recasting so much the show would be dead in a matter of seconds.
Joe montega is on twitter @JoeMontega ... However you spell his last name... @Gibson is Thomas Gibson, and @PGarcia is Kirsten Vangess... They can be found on @CrimMinds
I hope that JJ returns now that you have gotten rid of Emily. They are both terrific actors. I must agree with the comments above that the new blonde does not fit well with the other characters. She must go. I hope that Emily will return in the fall. I enjoy the show otherwise. Carol
ANNIE or ANYONE who knows:
You mentioned following the cast on Twitter. I've tried to find them and can't. Can you please post their @? Thank you
I was so disappointed about removing the strong female character of the show. Are the producers killing the show? As has already being stated the new female on the show, haven't bothered to learn her name, is no replacement for Prentiss
I liked the episode. the end when we seen her walk away it was too Soap oprea for me however I liked it. I know they had fake her death because Doyle got away loved seein JJ agian I don`t like Seaver. I hope that Emily comes bacck next year. but sadly I think if she doesn`t come back CM won`t last much longer with more and more of the cast leaving.
SHAME ON CBS ON GETTING RID OF THE TWO BEST FEMALE ACTRESSES, JJ AND EMILY, IT WILL NEVER BE THE SAME OR AS GOOD! GET RID OF THE NEW BLONDE BIMBO THAT CAN'T ACT AND DOES NOT FIT WITH THE TEAM. BRING AJ AND PAJET BACK NEXT SEASON! CRIMINAL MINDS WILL DIE WITHOUT THEM!ALL BOYS CLUB CBS? WHY NOT GET RID OF THE MEN? WHAT HAPPENED TO "FAMILY" CBS EXECS? NANCY
CM one of the best shows ever! But - getting rid of AJ and Prentiss a major mistake. Don't enjoy the new female character at all and frankly would have rather seen Rossi go over one of the females. What happenend to the story line about Reid's headaches?
