I thought last night's episode was terrific. I too wish that Reese had opened up more by the end, it would have seemed fitting. But maybe they're saving that for a new, living person. I certainly hope Reese is not destined to leave the show any time soon. He is really the rock of the show, even more than Finch. I miss both Carter and Shaw. They could use some more regular friends, if not team-mates. I thought the one episode that had several new and returning characters might yield some new regulars - still might I suppose. In any case, last night's show was masterfully done in the filming, writing and acting. It is a real tribute to these two actors that they could make a minimalist, natural and personal conversation between two people in a car absolutely riveting.

Nice catch with Opal city as the possible location of the spinoff.
I found the episode better than that bunch from The Return to Public Enemy.
Lance being the enemy now, would be much more believable and enjoyable if he wasn't that big of an Arrow supporter earlier. Paul is killing the angry act but it just feels forced at the moment. Interested to see what they have in store for him till the season ends.

Supernatural Season 10 Episode 18 Review: Book of the Damned

Way past Metronome or whatever. He should have been dumped at least 2 seasons ago...and PLEASE get rid of Rowena. I'm Scottish and I can't abide her voice.....urgh. Too much.

I am getting burnt on Metronome myself, and Charlie, but the story line is great, and I think Rowena adds some excitement to the show.

Case of the week was very good and I didn't guess who the unsub was until they found out the mistress had a son. Hotch had a lot to deal with. He does feel responsable for what happened to Hayley but he also knows that he isn't resposable. So it was hard for him when Hayleys father said so to his face. Kudos to Hotch for keeping cool. Altzheimer is a horrible sickness and some of Roys anges comes from that. But I do understand. If Hotch had taken the other job in the FBI he had for a while in the beginning of season 3 Hayley would be alive and they wouldn't have spilt ut. All in all, a pretty good episode.

I don't agree with you about Hotch taking that other job. I don't think it would have fixed anything. If we know anything at all about Aaron Hotchner, we know that catching criminals is in his blood. You can't get around that and no other job would change that.

he is a workaholic, I never understood how Haley didn't mind he was away long hours for 15 years (more or less) and suddenly that was unacceptable.
To me there were two options there: She had a job and her own life till she got pregnant and being alone with Jack let her and Hotch in new domestic environment and any of them managed that well.
When you see their last argument you can see they are selfcentered and oblivious of each other needs.
And there is this second option: in Rossi's words, everybody has a breaking point.
But as always, that lands on the writers, how it is that Haley didn't know Foyet's look or the sound of his voice... I guess this is a FBI heros show, I will fantasize about a crossover with Raylan as an escort ;P

All I ment was that if Hotch had taken the other job Hayley would be alive. Hotch wouldn't have met Foyet.

Hotch had met Foyet already, the reaper was one of his first cases, but you may be right, her chances of being still alive are higher,
I think the topic is open to several possibilities because they didn't write well the end of that marriage.
Writers let hanging that odd phone call pointing an affair and the quick divorce... it was really weird Haley didn't rebuilt her life in that two years, it was unnatural.
I could agree about Haley surviving, but not about their marriage. And I'm sorry, I didn't mean to disrespect your opinion, that storyline and the one with emily, or garcia's backstory, they got a lot of holes, and as much as I love the show I have found personal storylines are not their strenght and I enjoy sharing opinions about that :D

I like sharing opinions as well as long as we avoid peronal attacks. And I think we are. -:)

It is a tough episode to watch and it seemed longer than an hour to me. I happen to re-watch season 1 to 3 again (no pun intended :) ) the week before last, that time Hotch and Haley were so happy and joyful about Jack. I don't blame Roy but I don't like him lashing out to Hotch like that.
We know by now Hotch is the calmest among the team. This episode proved that point. Dealing with disgruntled family member is very tough. During the episode I gave up and cursed at least 3 or 4 times when Roy bashed in. It is horrible for him to lose a daughter, but he seems to forget that Hotch lost both his love and the mother of his child. (And anyway Haley did fall for Foyet's ruse, I have to be a bad guy here but I feel that way.) Anyway thanks to Jack's presence all seems to clear up and get through. About the case of the week, I may have to watch it again to catch all the details. Anyway, I did not actually feel so sorry for the father and the mistress. Cheater never prospers in any ways. I actually sympathize with the unsub for certain degree. Being raised with hope for a lost one then getting hurt by the reality can turn a decent one around. This episode reminds me of 'pleasure is my business' long time ago. A sociopath doesn't have to become a killer oneself, but can stem or poison someone(s) around him/her to become like him/her.

I agree with you on the family stuff. I think maybe that what made the episode so compelling is that so many of us can relate to the idea of that one family member who creates nothing but drama and heartache for us. I agree too - the case of the week was fairly intricate. You pretty much had to pay attention to all the names of the family members in order to make sense of it.

@ trinity

I too did not feel sorry for the father or the mistress, but I did feel sorry for the rest of the family who were totally innocent. He did not have to kill the sister or the brother and mother. He was a wicked guy and a real sociopath, but I can understand how hurt he felt. It seems the father knew all about him yet ignored him all his life. Ah, the repercussions of a life of cheating. The mistress stayed with him for 26 years and lied to the son about his father until he eventually found out. Wait. How did he find out again?

Grey's Anatomy Round Table: What Happened to Derek?!?

Fave scene.The Der rerunning the end scene from S4 House of Candles scene, when he had to leave Mer to see R. MerDer actually reenacted the kiss too :))) I'm thinking Der had a road accident or is at the plane crash site?. If he's been in a road accident I'm expecting him to turn up very critically injured at the end of 11.21 ready for the May sweeps. I hope Der will be around for S12, and we get to see some MerDer happiness. Happiness has been very fleeting for MerDer since Kepner's abandoned wedding. Why wouldn't Cris ask Mer to look out for Hunt. Maybe Mer shouldn't be concerning herself with Amy, but Amy saying that Mer couldn't know how it feels to watch someone you love die was harsh. Didn't Mer recognise George who then died in front of her on an OR table? George was Mer's family. Lexie died after the plane crash, Mer was there. Isn't it time for Hunt to move out of Der's trailer, or is it that in S13 Hunt will move in to MerDer's house.
If MerDer leave at the end of S1, I also will not be watching GA anymore.

I didn't expect Thea ending up like her mom! what the heck?! I felt it was ridiculous that Roy didn't say goodbye to her...come on, man! I was seriously about to shout to my TV against that little excuse of Detective Lance!! seriously??!! after all the things that team arrow has done for the city, you storm in the verdant and behave like an asshole??!!!
I loved Laurel standing up to him, as a lawyer! I cannot understand all this hatred just because they all lied to him? this does not make any sense to me!

Avatar
@ Fra

They did confirm Roy is back for one more episode so maybe they'll address him not saying goodbye to her. Well I think if I was Lance I'd be pissed off as well...I think it's
more to do with her dying and him not really dealing with the aftermath
yet..yes he's mad that they lied but he's more angry that she's gone.

@ •SARAH

yeah, I see that, but this is not Team Arrow fault, and he should understand that! Sara made a life choice, to join the league...and there are consequences for that, one to be the very high possibility to die...

1.So Roy's death was a fake & they'll continue to keep him appearing in all the 3 shows next season.
2.Thea is definitely going to be resurrected by Lazarus Pit so this death is also a fake.
So,all of this was for what?So that Oliver could take Ra's place as Demon's Head?
The writers have lost their marbles completely seems like!
And there's a time line reset coming too at the end of this season,thanks to Barry!

Actually, other articles have stated that Colton Haynes (Roy) was only contracted through this season. He has one more appearance in the season finale and then he's done. That's not to say he might not occasionally come back but I don't think he'll be back regularly going forward.

@ Sarah T

I also read the same thing that Colton's contract was only for this season and not even he has a full contract but then we had had Colton since Season 1 anyway.
