Excellent episode.........even though we all knew there was no way Red was going to die---it was still a gripping hour. I'm so glad they've made Dembe a series regular. I do agree that I think a change in direction with Liz's character is in order and I think maybe we are heading in that direction.

Not to start a debate on why Mandy Patinkin quit the show, but he was quoted as saying he didn't like the subject matter--or something to that effect.

Interesting premise for an episode.......I am more interested in learning what happened to lead up to Avery's patient being murdered.

It really wasn't a surprise that the liver transplant didn't go through. I think this leads to Maddie being a donor. SO sick of waiting on Will to come out. I think someone will end up doing it for him and that someone will be Jeff. I like that Layla stood up to him but she's still clingy and needy. I think that Scarlett and Gunnar keeping the band together without Avery will lead to a triangle with those 2 and the doctor. I was expecting Teddy to be arrested at the event---and I'm sure that's coming by the end of the season.

I think we all would like a follow up to this.......question is will we see it.........

Terrie

YES he is................LOL

While that drug they mentioned is real and while that case this was based on was real, I found myself laughing through this episode. I found it very unrealistic, however, at the end Thomas Gibson did a fantastic job of making it look real. How, when the rest of the team arrived, did Hotch snap out of it long enough to turn and shoot at the unsub? Why wasn't the team already in route to back up Hotch instead of waiting until they couldn't get him on the phone? Not only that, but how could such a powerful hallucinogen be that readily available to anyone outside the medical profession--if it is even available to them? No, I'm not that well versed when it comes to this stuff. The ending made it seem like we'd see this unsub again but I find that unlikely--although it would be great. Being so close to the end of the season I'm even wondering if there will be any follow up with how this has affected Hotch. We now know his greatest fear is his entire team being killed. I'm wondering when he talked to Rossi if he told him that.

I loved it! There's no doubt that Vanessa will be back next season with a vengeance and will help Fisk escape yet again. I just hate that we will have to in all likelihood wait a year or longer for the new season. I also hope that this series is recognized come awards season. D'Onofrio was excellent at portraying Fisk. He brought the same tenacity and emotion he had as Robert Goren to this role and it was great

Indeed, Romero IS a badass...........

But do you think there would still be a show without Norma?? I don't think there would be..............I know we all know it's coming but that question remains..........
