Criminal Minds, of course, is going through a mini shake-up. Paget Brewster exited following Season 7 and former Big Love star Jeanne Tripplehorn has been brought in to essentially replace her.

She'll debut on the Season 8 premiere this fall.

Reid needs to have a relationship already, I thought it would be the new addition at the beginning of Season 7, she left. Now this 49 year old actress(amazing actress btw) is coming on. No hope for Reid in the romance department. G-Man stands alone.

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.
