I don't think Blake fits in at all. What do you all think?
It seems like Blake is making her way to the center with everyone else, but doing it slowly. That's a good tactic on the part of the writers, I think.
As for Reid: this story arc was fairly intense, which may give some reason to believe that the show focused on him a fair amount. Back when Hotch lost his wife, it was just as intense, and the show focused pretty much on him as well. It's the way it goes.
@Annie: thank you for that important plot point. I had forgotten that the early male victim had his eyelids intact.
So sad moments with reid... I could cry all the time!
But I like the team handling with the circumstances... until now: my absolute favorite episode (my english is not so good... sorry!)
I love all episodes they make a great team. I feel sorry for Reid losing his girl and trying to get over it. I hope that everything works out from him. I hate the fact it won't be on next week. I miss it when it is not on. My two favorite characters are Morgan and Penelope. I feel everyone of them should expose a little of their personal life.
I was thinking the same thing about JJ! I honestly thought she was only wearing a coat. Obviously, she had a short dress on underneath, but still she's dressed like that to go to work?!
On a side note, the actor playing the Unsub did a much better job in this episode than he did in his guest arc on Gossip Girl. Yes, I watch both shows, no matter how vastly different.
MGG injured his leg while filming a movie so the CM writers had to create a story that caused Reid to injure his leg. If you notice in that episode, Reid spends most of the time (before getting shot) sitting down. That was why Reid used crutches and a cane for so long. The injury was real. In an earlier season, Gideon used crutches for one episode after injuring his leg. I don't know if Mandy Patinkin actually need those crutches.
When the unsub said, "I even used some of my own blood.", that should have been a HUGE red flag for the museum people. Even when he revealed earlier that he uses blood, they should have realized that they were dealing with a nutjob and called the cops.
More Reid! More Morgan & Garcia-those 2 need to finish the flirtation that's gone on the entire show, 1 way or the other! Do it or stop the games!
When JJ first show up did anyone eles think she had nothing on under that jacket we didn't see a dress or pants I was like OMG JJ what are you going to do sleep with him.
@makayla i've been watching from the beginning. maybe i'm just not a Reid fan. who knows. i just feel like there is more insight about reid then the other characters. i feel a lot of time the show dwells on reid and how fragile and how much of a genius he is.
i like morgan too.
i think he's gonna get less play time since it seems the new direction is to get reid super close to blake to get all the fans to like her more...
I've been watching this show since it started. Over the years, there have been storylines about some of the characters. Morgan had a couple, one involving his cousin and one when he went home to Chicago and was arrested for murder and the team had to delve into his past to help him. Since the work they do is the primary force behind them, having a peek into their personal lives is nice but it is not overwhelming. I would like Reid to have a relationship outside of the BAU, someone he can relax with, not necessarily a romantic relationship but maybe a really close friend. There has to be a balance in their lives. As for this episode, it was different and as one person pointed out about the friend putting up as much of a fight as he could, the man he killed first did not have his eyelids removed. That came with the later victims.
I think the friend was able to thrash around more because the unsub was hurrying and likely didn't wait for the drugs to take full effect before he started his gruesome work.
I liked the followup on Reid's grief, I hope they don't just continue on as if nothing happened from here on, there should be some change in him.
Did you watch seasons five, six, and seven?? Reid had pretty much nothing.
In season 5 he got shot in the leg which, IMO, decreased his screentime the rest of the season until 5x12 'The Uncanny Valley' and he was pretty much in the background the rest of the season. In season 6, he had one episode, 6x12 'Corazon', about his headaches which were mentioned only twice more in that season afterwards. He also had a little bit more grieving for Emily and the fear he was becoming Schizophrenic in 6x19 'With Friends Like these' but that about it for season 6. In season 7, he had a bit more focus in 7x02 'Proof' and 7x13 'Snake Eyes' and much more focus in 7.11 'True Genius'.
That's about it the for seasons 5-7. Reid's not even my favorite character. Morgan is but I've been missing Reid lately and I'm so glad the writers gave him something this season.
My favroite was when Rossi and Hotch were talking
rossi I can't imaged not being able to say goodbye to my wife
Hotch just looks at him
Rossi: Oh sorry
@Terrie no I've been watching since the beginning but to me it seems Reid gets the most stories... I know the others have had their little arcs, but Reid has had so many that has had multiple episodes to develop with the exception of Hotch and the Reaper... to me it just seems Reid gets more "play" than the rest of the characters. That's what I was saying.
@Nay you must be a fairly new watcher of this show. There was the arc with Hotch's wife being murdered, the one where Garcia was shot, the one where Rossi was asked by his ex wife to be at her side when she died, JJ getting married, the one with Morgan and his cousin........while these may have been small arcs they did delve into the personal side of each of the characters.
I'm still waiting on more with this mysterious photographer. My guess is we'll be left hanging with the season finale with this.......and no new episode next week.........ugh.......
I understand that they have to close up the rest of this relationship story with Reid, but do the writers ever go into detail for the other characters? No. Why is that? I want to know more about the other characters or at least give them more memorable stories. Now-a-days it seems as though its all about poor Reid.
Overall, the episode was okay. I liked the artist as the unsub.
