Forever the voice of wisdom, Rossi hits Hotch with some sound love advice and sums up human nature in one sentence. Boom. HotchB+ As super awkward as our fearless robot leader is with the ladies, he manages to find some stiff game. Sure the running smack talk flirt is a bit junior high, but if it's with a lady who pulls the classic "fake and injury to concern your opponent then make a dash to the finish line" move, it seems like it will pay off. And if that doesn't, bailing on paper work to show up at said lady's house with flowers on Valentine's Day definitely will.

It's no surprise that this particular case is the one to push Prentiss out of her imaginary world where everything is okay. The victim calls her out about her attacker, even thought that's it's clear that dead or alive, the monsters will still haunt your life. Everything she's been trying to ignore is thrown into her face. She's having a bad day. Why is there not a giant team hug? I suppose the important thing is she finally admits that things aren't going well; but I'd still like a hug.


Your monster is dead, I have to live with mine.” Criminal Minds celebrates 150 episodes with an all-out, top shelf crazyfest full of piano power ballads, endless who dunnits?, and lots of emotions. I had high hopes for this episode going in and while I wasn't exactly let down, my socks weren't knocked off. (Yeah, that's a phrase.) The episode hit the ground running and didn't relent (except for brief, poignant moments with our favorite back from the dead BAU agent, but more on that later).

"Sometimes, I want to fight, but my body keeps telling me to stop. It doesn't matter how hard I punch, I can't do it. And when that happens you know what I do? I let go, Ryan. And what I figured out is letting go doesn't meant that you're a quitter, it doesn't mean that you lost, it just means that you realized in that moment that it's time to let go and move on. "

JJ

JJFA+Only four pairs of shoes? Not impressed. JJ's face can only receive an Ramble about the necessity of owning excessive amount of kicks: Hotch Has no comment on the shoe situation, but is apparently still participating in Hunger Strike '11. Possibly with Toby Flenderson. Are they eating food? You decide. "We don't always get second chances in life. Take the plunge. See where it goes.” The unsub does offer an extensive collection of crayons. 120 colors! I would do extremely questionable things for 120 brand new crayons.

This week's episode unfolded like a realistic reboot of Scream. You might think this is a bad thing, but you'd be wrong. While the graphically violent aspects were omitted, we did have terrible things happening to young adults by young adults, victims that believed they were safe only to be attacked again, a bad guy that wouldn't die, and shining moments of humor. Wes Craven would be proud.
