    Any update on how many episode season 4 is getting? The last I heard they were aiming to shoot 27 with the earlier production start.

    I would say Thomas Gibson and Joe Mantagena because there charactors are the biggest.


    Who(If Anyone)did they kill off on the season finale?

    Trust me - as soon as I know, you'll know. Hopefully, the network will release some official information on the episode order very soon.

    No one was killed. One person, or possibly two, were injured or impaired. We don't have much more detail other than that right now.

    I was just wondering if anybody knows if the second part of "Lo-Fi" has an official episode title yet?

    Not long to go before season 4 now

    Do you think Will and JJ will actually get married or will one of the chicken out?

    At this point in question isn't necessarily whether one of them is going to chicken out. The question is this: Are they both going to survive the SUV explosion?

    I doubt JJ and Will will split up because JJ needs someone to look after the baby if she's going to continue with her job but personally I don't think they'll get married for a while as it would seem insensitive to prepare for a wedding while one of her team members is seriously injured or recovering. But it's a longer than usual season so who knows?

    Life goes on. With Will in town - quitting his job, and a baby on the way, I doubt that altruism is really going to be a forefront of the story where J.J. is concerned. There's already too much drama. I don't want to see Criminal Minds become the new E.R. Character's lives are intriguing to a point, but if they become the center of attention it takes away from the real stories.

    They did a great job with The Fisher King Parts I and II revealing just enough about the characters to get you interested, but not wrapped up in their personal lives. Having these profilers become to interpersonal, and therefore biased, will deter from there jobs. It's pretty clear that many of the team members have suffered from personal trauma that has led them down the path to helping others. It is a common theme, in true life as well as drama. The why is not as interesting as the how, in my opinion. Most people are damaged in one way or another. Everyone has some instance that could have gone one way or another in determining the reasons for pursuit. I'm more concerned with the pursuit when it comes to the characters.

    How did Reid join the FBI? When was he assigned to the BAU? How did Hotch go from prosecutor to FBI agent? Why is important here too. How did Garcia get flagged as a potential "terrorist" to warrant attention from the FBI? How did Morgan go from street cop to the FBI? Why did he do it? How did Prentiss avoid the state department when she became an FBI agent? How did J.J. go from small town to big time and how does she maintain her composure in the big city? These are all much more interesting points to me than childhood experiences, unless they can lead to an ultimate "why" of a character.

    Thoughts?

    Tomcataxter, if you remember watching Tabula Rasa, it shows that Morgan and Reid joined the FBI in 2004. Why they joined hasn't been answered yet. If you want to watch the episode before Lo-Fi the season finally, go to youtube and watch it, it's under the url name SSAJoJo. She has all of season 3 on there.
