This is a pretty heavy rant. There was so much wrong with this episode it's hard to find a place to begin. I can't, for the life of me, understand why a show would put ON SCREEN someone being tortured. It is beyond the pale. In this writer's opinion, it had a legitimate chance of being classified as torture porn. With all the shows they've done with abuse to women being done either off camera, or implied, why did they have to corrupt the show principles? The writers have 199 episodes behind them and less than 10% of them showed direct violence to women. I get it. The people who do these heinous things to women do exist. When I worked in San Quentin Prison, I had direct contact with several of them. They loved to talk about their "conquests". these are truly bad people, and these people watch this show too. Believe me when I tell you they don't need ANY encouragement when it comes to finding new, sadistic, and creative ways to hurting women. Living in the central time zone where the air time is 8:pm, I wonder how many underage children saw these acts of cruelty on Ms. Cook? With the end being thrown together like something out of Marvel Comics, how much damage has this particular episode done to the shows reputation? And last, how many discussions will parents need to have with their children, to explain to them that hurting women is NOT the right thing to do? I, for one, wish this show well in their future seasons. But I won't be back. If I want Torture Porn, I'll turn on my computer.

Dreadful! A storyline lifted out of the worst of fanfiction, virtually no team and profiling, huge holes in continuity and the appalling Super Mary Sue JJ who now dominates the show. This should have been an episode celebrating 200 episodes of an intelligent show about Criminal Profiling and we got this absurd spy story. Worst of all was the ridiculous ending - after being tortured for hours Super JJ didn't need hospital but a jolly time in the bar with the Gang?? Come on CM - stop dumbing down what used to be a clever show.

He popped up in Castle as well I think last season or the one before. Lots of guest starring roles, but I ain't complaining ;) he is a great actor.

Is Emily back on the show? Or did you mean just this episode?

Emily was the BEST. They should bring her back.

No. The actress that played her doesn't want to come back as a regular. We should all respect her will and appreciate the ones that decided to stay instead of longing for the ones that decided to abandon CM.

I respect her decision of not coming back but one thing I'm pretty sure a lot of people think is that the character portrayed by Paget Brewster is one of the most complete, better prepared and can contribute the most to the team. I'd hope she decide to come back (someday); she'd make a lot of fans so happy. We simply love her.
