I agree about Morgen being the first one to find out she still alive but one thing that I really loved is how Rerid meantion Jason Gideon I though it was odd with them both being good friends that he hardly ever talk about him and I love it when the show meantion its past its always a good feeling in my book.
Also Seaver is playing the probie part perfect she like Ziva was when she join NCIS
Last night was a great episode. Finally, Hotch is back on the screen in more than just background character capacity. Everyone seemed in character as well. Great storyline, I liked all the parallels between Shelley and Emily's different situations.
This team is a family, really hope Emily comes back and JJ and that Seaver leaves. Seaver is an idiot. And if she's still asking so many questions, she has no business delivering profiles.
Liked last nights story. I don't see how Hotch can keep from telling the team about Emily being alive, I know that for her sake he has to keep it to himself. Wouldn't want to be in his shoes when they do finally out she is still alive. Thought the story line was very good. Kelli Williams played the part well. Keep up the good work CM cast. Love the show. My number one show.
I totally agree with CMinds1001 comments.
I thought the writing, acting and directing were excellent. There seem to be multiple layers of meaning in this episode. Just as Shelley was unable to save her son despite her valiant efforts, the team/cast was unable to save Emily/Brewster from outside forces that made the decisions. And in the end, all are grieving, including us the fans which the writers acknowledged with this episode.
I thought it was a very good episode and agree with CMinds1001 about his statement that it really was a hard year on the show personnel-wise. I also noticed that Hotch didn't really answer Morgan's question - but how could he without lying, since he knows that Emily isn't really dead. So he settled on "Same place as you, wishing she was here" which is, strictly speaking, not exactly a lie.
I think this counseling he's doing, is to find out how his team is coping with her "death" and, if he discovers that there are some MAJOR problems (i.e. someone on his team can't cope and falls into a rabbit hole without any chance of getting out), maybe he would let this team member in on the secret that Emily isn't really dead...But since it seems they are able to cope somehow there is apparently no need for that - the only thing I can imagine is Morgan going after Doyle. He expressed such hatred against him that it seems likely that his grief turns in the need to pursue the guy who did this to Em
I thought this episode had some very poignant moments with the team, and it was good to see Morgan finally open up some emotionally. I had to agree with the statement..."It's been a hard year," because on the show it really has personnel-wise, what with two "deaths" and a reassignment, the year has been hard on the cast, crew and fans, as well as the show. Did anyone else notice that Hotch didn't really answer Morgan's question of where he (Hotch) goes when he needs someone to talk to? I thought the actors did really well, and the tighter shots fit with the subject matter.
As for the issue with the unsub...it posed the unspoken question of who is more important, an innocent child injured due to a criminal's actions, or a police officer shot in the line of duty...I don't want to be the one who chooses, but the unsub felt her little boy was so overshadowed by the officer that it cost the former his life, and sent her into a downward spiral. The role of the unsub was masterfully port
