Wednesday 10:00 PM on CBSIn Season
I think it's just that fans have come to expect constant quality from the show. Like, if the show is consistently good, what reason do we have to doubt it will continue to be that way? I usually don't rate episodes before I see them though, so I'm just speculating.
Really looking forward to the episode. I'm gonna miss it airing though, so I'll have to watch online. Still.
|Please discuss "Outfoxed" in this thread. Episode #99 was written by executive producer Simon Mirren and directed by John Gallagher. Watch promo clip here.|
Not just for Criminal Minds, it's just an habit that some people seem to have on TV.com; rating an episode before it airs. I just wish there could be some way to prevent it.
|Easily the best episode this season, if you ask me. Beautifully directed, wonderfully paced - the case was fantastic, the profile great. I loved Emily's interaction with The Fox, her nerves, her second-guesses. The Fox seemed much creepier this time around. And the twist at the end? Nice. Morgan's wrestling match with the unsub was heart-stopping! But what I really loved about this ep was that the actors and the writers brought it. They all committed, working seamlessly together with these characters that have been well-established in their minds and in the viewers'. Nothing felt off - they were all very believable in their roles, their words were right as were their reactions. From Reid's edge of the seat enthusiasm during the seminar at the beginning to Hotch's clench jawed, red-eyed fury at the end. These are the best characters on television when written like this.|
There isn't much I can add to this. You read my thoughts!!!! What I love most about CM (and what some people may not understand) is the fact that sometimes it's not about the case or even the unsub; sometimes it's about the team, how their job affects their lives, how much they care for each other. Tonight's ep was an introduction for next one and Hotch walking off that jail with all the noise the prisoners were making was just IT! Foyette, they are coming for you!
The case and how it was solved was excellent. Aaron and Emily with the Fox was creepy. Morgan at the end was scary.
However, I was waiting the whole show for the end. I knew it was coming, I just did not know how it would pan out. Next week is the 100th episode and I can't wait.
|Loved this episode!!!! All of it was amazing, but I particularly liked the end. Foyet definitely has Hotch down pat. |
Can't wait for next week. The 100th episode looks fantastic. Here's hoping nothing bad happens to Hotch.
And how funny is it that Reid still is using crutches (obvsiously MGG has to, but Hotch was stabbed multiple times and fine while Reid was shot once and still on crutches)
i tried not to read your posts,
because i need to know beforehand:
if i watch this ep now, will i stay rooted in front of my tv until next wednesday?
(I wouldn't mind, my employer would)
it's bad enough as it is now. (the waiting for the episode next week)
|Good episode but man did it take a while for backup to come for Morgan wtf?! Anyway good case and Foyett working his way back in nice touch.|
I know, I was thinking the same thing! After the first shot, Rossi and JJ (or any of the other dozen or so SWAT memebrs) should have been right there. If I was Morgan I would be laying into them for not backing him up properly. But then again, it would not have been as exciting to watch.
But I really don't get what happened in the ending. Is Foyet the one who sent the fox the note signed 'the admirer'?
WOW!!!!! This was a total knockout episode!! The Unsub under the girl in the pool played on one of my childhood fears (to keep me out of the pool alone as a child, neighbor told me the dark spots (leaves) were alive and would pull me under !!).
The actor playing the Captain was amazing... convincing... and heartbreaking. Such a heavy episode carried so well by our beloved cast.
IrigD - yes, the drawing of the eye on the newspaper clipping that was mailed to The Fox was the Reaper's signature / calling card.
Completely wound up for next week..... on a scale of 1-10 this epi was a 12~
