  • Not a favorite episode - don't like the side story re: Prentiss and her Interpol buddies.

    6.5
    Prentiss has never been a favorite of mine - but this whole backstory could get interesting. The best thing about this episode was watching the way Dr. Reid operates. When he is able to copy the tune the autistic boy is playing on the piano - and tells Rossi it's nothing; playing music is just understanding math, I was really impressed. He is also the one who later deciphers the boy's drawings - recognizing the pattern of his socks, the tread of Rossi's shoe, and the hands of the clock. The message the episode attempted to send, concerning how desperate people have become in this weak economy, was not completely lost. It was an o.k., not a great episode.moreless
  • I love Reid.

    I love Spencer Reid so much. He's always been my favorite character. He's so intuitive as well as super smart. Plus the Doctor Who comment makes me love him more:) I worry about his migraines though. MGG's hair was too long before and i was glad he got it cut but now it looks like he stuck it in a light socket :)

    Not sure how i feel about Prentiss and her side storyline. Feels like they (writers, producers) are trying to make up for axing J.J. and i don't appreicated it. Also the new girl is blonde. I'm probably reading into things but...moreless
  • One of my favorite episodes

    i have to say, i loved this episode.



    i thought that the story line with sammi trying to tell them all along who the the person is, was really great and well constructed, and i loved how sammi kind of connected with reid. my favorite part of the episode was sammi and reid paying the piano together, that scene just sent shivers down my spine.



    then there was also the sub story line with agent prentiss that kept coming up throughout the episode, the ending was also really intense (don't want to give away any spoilers)



    overall i loved the episode, i don't think there was any part of it were i got bored, it kept me interested the entire time :)moreless
  • I'll never forget this episode; one of my absolute favorites!

    The case was great! On the one hand it's hard to accept that what the unsub is doing is okay, but on the other hand it's easy to understand why he does it. It's wrong, but you can't help but to feel sorry for the guy.

    Of course the case becomes more interesting because of Sammy; and the difficulty of trying to understand what the autistic boy is telling them.



    I loved Reid's bonding with Sammy. It was great. If anyone can bond with someone autistic it's Reid. When they played the piano was just too adorable for words and I love how Reid figured out what Sammy was trying to tell him.



    And things are getting very dangerous for now just Prentiss, but the team too. It seems like it's time of the final showdown between Doyle and Prentiss. And I hope Prentiss kicks his @ss!moreless
  • I really loved this case! Vrey touching!

    This was definitely the best Criminal Minds episode in a while. The case with the autistic boy was definitely a very moving one, and it was also a very unique one to watch, as they have definitely not done too many cases like this in the past, an d definitely not with an autistic child.



    The Prenitss storyline is getting exceptionally interesting, as she comes face to face with her nemesis. It is certainly a very interesting plot, and I cant wait to see how things will eventuate with this one!



    All up, a terrific episode, which I definitely recommend! I can't wait till the next episode, and I think this one gets the show back on track, because the last two were not very good.moreless
