I just knew no one in the main core would be in danger. It just seemed like they were going to twist it somehow and they did. This wasn't my favorite episode but it was a switch up on what we are used to. Given that I suspect there won't be many like it. I did however like the ending. It's about time someone took Strauss down a notch. Having to deal with a parent who is an alcoholic I think they showed that she is a bit human. More than often they tend to go off and on the wagon. It seems she is no different. I wonder though how the team may change with the prospect of her possibly not being above Hotch. That is what concerns me more.
I stopped paying any real attention to previews years ago, especially on CM. They always twist it. They are trying to get you to watch under false pretenses. But what do you expect from a network that fired JJ and had them spend all that elaborate mess (that took away time from the main story) to write Prentiss out. The only reason I put up with it is I hoped to actually see the end of 'Dear Abby.' Great nickname, whoever thought of it. I have never cared for Prentiss and didn't realize how much I didn't until I thought there was hope.
