  • Fast forward to the fight scene.

    Whatever happened to the days when a season finale would have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish? All shows seem to have weak finales these days and I was nearly asleep watching this one. For me, it only even began to get interesting when J.J. kicked the backside out of Madame X. Go, J.J.! I always love seeing Jack and Henry (but Henry needs a bit of a haircut. *grin*). I gave the episode a 7 because it was Paget's swan song and I found that very sad because she is such a huge asset to the show. I fervently hope that Emily has a guest spot here and there but after the way Paget was treated by the CBS honchos last season, I'm not really sure why she would want to do that. I think Garcia echoed my feelings well.



    I am hoping for good things in Season 8 but I shall miss Paget Brewster very much, she was a great asset to my favourite show. I wish Jeannie Tripplehorn all the best and the rest of the cast too.moreless
  • This is the most brilliant finale I have seen.

    This episode was phenomenal. This season was a complete roller coaster. it has downright horrible episodes and then some absolutely superb episodes but the finale was INSANELY AMAZING. I kid you not when I say that there wasn't even one moment where i got even slightly distracted from what was happening on screen. it was fast paced, well though out , every reason and motive was clearly explained and the unsubs were unlike we have seen before and very creative. When I read the review regarding some bank robbery, I was like eh that sounds boring but believe me, it was the complete opposite. The emotions and relations were such an important part of the story but not once did it come in the way of the storytelling or the main plot. What I love about CM is that even when new couples are introduced, its done with so much subtlety and not thrown in your face to like them, its basically kept at the background with just enough knowledge to know whats happening. Rossi and Strauss, Beth and Hotch and also I have to bring this up, they manage to get the most adorable child actors. I am big fan of jack and I love JJ's son as well. The last scene, oh man. Without being too cheesy and corny they managed to make it the most heartfelt scenes I have seen in a long time on any show. Emily's dance with everyone, her friendship with morgan, her talk with hotch, rossi throwing JJ a wedding, everything was just spot on. I am extremely sad that Paget is leaving, I'm not clear ont he reasons why but I hope they bring her back the way JJ was brought back. I like the original team a LOT and the opening credits needs to have Paget. Oh and I love Matthew Gray Gubler :) Cant wait for the next season and hopefully to see Emily.moreless

    Well before I address the obvious, let's talk about the brilliant continuation of a truly phenomenal storyline! Everything in here was executed to perfection! The Queen of Diamonds slash Lady X woman with Henry, plus the bomb scene! Aside from JJ kicking that woman's butt like there's no tomorrow, we also showcased the true brilliance of Prentiss in that scene with Will!



    OMG, this case was one of the BAU's best, and Criminal Minds never fails to deliver!



    My own ipinion to this ending, though, is that I am so sad that Paget Brewster is going! OMG, Emily has been my favourite character since I started watching CM, and even though she wasn't an original cast member, she will be missed more than I can even express in words! She was brilliant!



    I do hope that we get a replaecment. No one can replace Paget Brewster and Emily Prentiss, but it is better than leaving a void in her place.



    Thanks Paget Brewster for many weeks of brilliant CM episodes and many years with this show! I will miss Emily and her sense of humour. She was absolutely amazing!



    Also, congrats to JJ! And Will! And on a side note, Jack and Henry are both so unbelievably cute!!! <333moreless
