  • I want HOTCH back !!!

    9.5
    I just couldn't watch this episode without being undisturbed! Beside that Morgan is better at kicking doors and butts than being the Unit Chief. Personally I love Hotch better than the rest of the team, part of it, is because he has such a good and interesting character and he is also a great team leader. But hopefully he'll be back in charge, I heard.
  • Personally I like Morgan better as the break down doors and kick criminal butt guy.

    9.0
    Hotch did good at kicking the guys butt though. I Loved when Morgan told him he should've waited for backup and Hotch said "Would you?" Then Prentiss smirked and Hotch said "What?" Lol. It was great to see Morgan understand the guy in charge perspective and Hotch the guy 'on the loose' perspective.



    Hopefully it will be like they said, once they catch the Reaper in the 100th episode Hotch will be team leader again, and he and Morgan will still be able to work together.



    As far as the story goes it was great and creepy. Should have shown it Halloween week. A hearty thanks to the writers for creeping me out even more by setting the creepiest episode in a while in my home town. Lol.



    I still don't like Morgan getting involved with Tamara though. I am thinking that might be part of a grander scheme though. Possibly the ethics behind it and her being a victims sister is how they will lead into him not being ready for command. Maybe he gets written up for it or something...we will see I guess. I just hope no one is leaving the show, I don't want any cast changes!



    I still miss Reid....I wonder if the writers read this stuff....Lol.moreless
  • Morgan's first case as the boss...

    9.0
    The team tries to catch a serial killer that after cutting the victims throat he removes their eyes with almost not leaving any damage behind. They suspect it could be a veterinarian or a Doctor but it turns out it's a taxidermist that his only social relationship was with his dad that died some weeks ago... just when the murders started. Meanwhile we discover that Morgan is still in touch with the sister of one of the victims of 2 chapters behind... Although he before said he wasn't involved now he is having coffee with her and supporting her... and later in the chapter he goes out to have some drinks with her... I don't like it... I ahve the feeling that this is gonna end badly! Even though that he makes quite a good job as chief although he tries to avoid Chief Strauss calls...

    There's a couple of interesting moments, one when Rossi reminds Hotch that the switch in positions it's just temporal but that maybe Morgan would not be very happy about stepping down and another one when we see how Hotch acts like Morgan, reckless and impulsive, and then Morgans lectures him about it and Emily just chuckles at the situation.

    In the BAU Garcia prepares a surprise for Morgan. She got him an office with JJ's help. While the team is out, Penelope arranges the office including a fun drawer with a picture of her and some toys and they share another Morgan/Garcia sweet moment.

    Good chapter with a creepy killer and some personal developements:)moreless
  • someone has a kink for eyes. Morgan is head, and...total heartbreak! i want hotch back!!!

    9.0
    Okay, yes there's a maniac on the loose who has a thing for eyes. the first victim is messy, but he gets more efficiant with every kill. not normal right? well, not for the BAU. blah blah blah, turns out to be a broken man who has lost everything, and CAN'T DO EYES!!!!

    but that's not the sad part. Morgan... I love him to death, i do. but he's...this is going to be hard. he's taken to the role of leader, and the stupid strauss want him to succeed in every way possible. the B****! Hotch is okay with everything, but may start to bite with the possiblility of Morgan taking his place, even though this is temp. there will be a show down. The writers know what they're doing to us, and i can't watch. it's like a car crash, with metal twisted around a pole, burning flesh can be smelt, but you can't help but gawk. I need to see this through. I can't! I have to. and morgan's being a dumb butt. He's chasing tail that he knows he can't have. he's gonna get in trouble... and garcia's gonna say i told you so. they're walking into traps, and i can't help but scream at teh television evey wendsday night. I need a life, and CM... someone save them.moreless
  • Really spooky

    7.5
    Call me crazy or what but I had real trouble watching this episode. I love the show and I think it is probably one of the best if not the best show I am watching currently so I am very eager every week but this was.. I do not know. I was never caught to the story, I found myself too many times not being able to watch the screen. The show has done it before: had very spooky and crouch episodes but this.. somehow was more spooky than usual.



    I did love the storyline with Morgan. I was not very found of the idea of change but it seems to open up a new dimension of Morgan and it looks we get more and more into his char, the life he lives and the way he takes the job. And the ending with office and Garcia was very sweet.moreless
