This really was a wild roller coast ride since they started this arc. Everything about it brought out all the older elements that made this show what is was the first year. Except the last 30 seconds....Morgan couldnt respond in time, knowing full well the consequences? Hotchner didnt plan for that type of action/reaction? Rossi was out of rabbits? Not a fan of them setting up Spencer for all the trauma to follow, as he has been the one character that i have liked from the beginning.

Can't they change the ending.....maybe Spencer was having a nightmare....something, he has had a challenging life enough and DESERVES happiness....ya I know some of us speak of the characters like they are personal friends. Criminal Minds should have done what Hawaii 5-0 did, have the viewers select the ending!! Just a thought. BRING MAUVE BACK!!!

Good episode, not the ending I was hoping for. I love Beth Reisgraf in this role & I feel a continuing love interest would have been an interesting take for Reid. Michelle T. made a GREAT psycho-stalker!

Why can't they give poor Reid a break?! Can they never let him have any happiness? Does anyone know the name of the song playing just after Mave is shot?

This episode saddened me, and not just because of its content. I just hope the writers turn this pseudo-arc with Spencer into something worthwhile and put some life back into CM or I'm just really done with the show. Love the characters, the acting still ranks. The writing, however, has really been cold; the plots uninteresting or disappointing; the profiling next to nil and the sense of teamwork is gone.

Holy crap that was an amazing episode. If you don't like Reid then this is not the episode for you, but if you, like me, are a huge fan of Spencer-centric ep, then you will love this!!!! I loved it. Spoiler Alert!!!! I cried like a fricken baby for the whole last 5 minutes. Well Done.

I really have high hopes for this Spencer-centric episode. I hope it's not only good, but helps Criminal Mind find its footing again.
