  • The story within the story.

    All good dramas have a recurring internal story often called the mythology. X Files / abducted sister, Law & Order, CI/ Goren & Nicole, CSI Miami/Horatio & Resden, etc The emergence of Emily and her dark past has been hinted for some time. Almost teasingly the tension rose episode by episode until the chilling outdoors meeting. Now the story takes wings and flies as one by one her enemy kills all who knew her in her former life. Prentiss was superb - lots of subtlety and nuance. The only question is when does the rest of the team find out. Great episode. Unlike some shows, Prentiss and her story unknowingly became the "case" for the rest of the team - great integration of plot lines. Can't wait until next time.
