As a born again Christian I already know where I am going when I leave this world [heaven]. The Bible is full of explanations about heaven and who will be there. The episode last night just solidified what I knew about how many people live in the dark about their eternal destination, so sad!
Thought it was a great episode last night. Im not sure, but it seems Reid is still holding a grudge against Prentiss for pretending to be dead. Did anyone catch his comment while they were talking about the afterlife? He was flabbergasted to learn that Prentiss had flatlined. I think he and she need to sit down and rehash this thing once and for all and let him vent about how pissed he is. The ending scene between Rossi and his ex completely caught me by surprise. I was in tears, it was so well done...
I think that if they wanted death to be more thought provoking then they would have given more than a couple of possible endings...maybe we go back to the best year of our life to live over...or maybe we are given a chance to alter the outcome of our future...maybe make a different choice at some crucial point in our lives. I son't think that our bodies can take CPR as many times as it was portrayed on TV, yes I know it is not real...just saying.
I loved the show last night. It was a powerful message, Loved all the actors they had me crying at the end,my heart went out to Rossi!
okay i know the focus was on Rossi but can i just give a shout out to Hotch's new image!!! finally no tie!!
liked the ep but i want things to go the way they were the first two season when we knew next to nothing about the unsub and didn't see his face until the very end, and we had to guess and g through the profiling with the team.
other than that, great ep!! but Rossi just doesn't touch me, i don't know, i just don't care about him, never did.
and i miss Reid-isms too!
on the whole, solid ep
pfft! I say, pfft! Abused children wreaking havoc as adults has now been done to ummm... death on this show. The fact that the unsub was dying was a nice touch, but he would have been an insane revenge killer no matter what else was going on, his rage was too big to contain. The team used to mention, from time to time, how the unsubs have lost their humanity and cannot feel a connection to the pain they cause others. This episode would have been a good time to say it again. The unsub devolved quickly, going from men of equal strength to girls, a mom and kid that was the same age as he was when he was tortured and killed his father. The "it's not your time yet" was lost in there somewhere, certainly I did not get it in regards to his father saying it.
Rossi's sad story line was long enough, this show has become overly saccharin when a team member has issues. And speaking of issues, where is Morgan's deep faith from when he got the heebeejeebies in a church and turned his phone off
I loved the episode. I cried for Rossi. It was a hard and moral decision for him.What to do???
I thought it was a really good episode. I do think they wrapped the Rossi storyline up quicker than necessary, I get why they want to get personal this season with the characters but it's a bit annoying at how we know more about some then others. Hotch got a long story arch with the Reaper and his wife, it was something that kind of just lasted a bit longer. Emily had a long story arc with Doyle. Rossi is probably one of the most enigmatic characters out of the bunch whom we know little about so I kind of wanted to see a bit more for him. I am glad that he got something though and I suspected he had a child so that confirmation was bittersweet to see.
I also liked how they handled "the other side" it did somehow mean more that a Scientist like Reid had such an inexplicable experience, I can imagine that had to be hard for him to wrap his head around, but it somehow made sense too that he had such a warm experience. I found it interesting that Emily's was so cold and dark and kind o
I was very disappointed in the quick wrap-up of the Rossi/ex-wife storyline. Why bother bringing in a subject that heavy for 15 minutes of airtime?
I also dislike how Prentiss has become the team therapist - she is suddenly the nurturing, caring friend-type who the team is confiding their innermost thoughts to.....seems out of character and doesn't sit well with me. I am glad she is back - perhaps we are supposed to forget that she nearly died, faked her death and was truamatized by an Irish gangster...like we are supposed ot forget Reid has a mentally-ill mom and is having terrible headaches. Or that Morgan had a love interest. Or that Hotch's wife was murdered by a serial killer and left him a single dad.
I am glad the ME has somehting to do with the profile changing this week. The episode where Reid, out of no where, figures out the unsub feels no pain made me crazy!
I still love the show. I hear we are going to see a love interest for Hotch and a peek into JJ's f
While I'm not a fan of knowing who the unsub is at the beginning (although it looks like that isn't going away anytime soon), this one was done right in the way we could both feel sorry for the unsub while being completely horrified by what he did.
My heart broke for Rossi all throughout this episode: struggling about what to do, having the woman who means so much to him dying in his arms, and sitting by the graves of her and their son at the end. The storyline packed such a wallop and Isabella Hoffman and Joe Mantegna were so affective that I think trying to stretch it out over more scenes/episodes would have been overkill.
I think Reid got the warm, white light near-death experience because it wouldn't have given Morgan (or the more skeptical viewer) pause if it had come from anyone else. Reid, a dedicated scientist dying in a dark cabin far away from any hospital, having such an experience holds up better against the two most common arguments against this near-death experien
I guess these is my biggest issue with CM is that their no big story acrh like there is with NCIS
i agree i cant wait to see jj storyline. i am so happy she is back.
I was crying at the end of last nights episode. I felt so bad for Rossi.
I also had rather hoped to see more of the story line of Rossi's ex-wife. I missed that actress after she left J*A*G; there is just something so very watchable and believable about her. I know, it is inconsistent with my previous statements that I don't care about the back stories of most of these characters. That lady is different. She paints pictures it's a pleasure to watch. Too bad.
I felt bad for Rossi and at the end wad so sad and when they showed the baby's graive was sad and I hope we get to see more of Rossi storylines. Am looking foward until next week's episode.
