DO NOT POST IN THE [ profile] bau_inbox. THANK YOU.

After three weeks my show is back and its back strong. I still have some bones to pick with Mr. Bernero but I love him too. So lets get to it, shall we?

OMG, I loved this episode. It was great from the word go....I was just boggled and intrigued, and I love that feeling.

Simple in its storytelling, it weaved a lot of stories into one and had a good storyline and resolution. It didnt have the huge, pop-off ending that leaves you breathless but throughout Murry and I were just like "for real?, Well OK". And now the highlights.....

*Rossi calling Garcia kitten. I just loved that.
*Rossi not paying much attention to Reid talking about The Illustrator Man.
*Sin to win weekend in AC and Emily wins big. Fuck yeah!
*Hotch without his suit jacket. Ugly ties or not, it does not take much for that man to be super sexy.
*Pregnant partner who wanted a daughter more than anything. So sad. The poor woman was just sad as hell.
*I couldnt help but wonder who was doing the voice over as she was reading the Unsub's letter. His voice sounded familiar.
*Damn, Morgan is FINE and Prentiss looks so good in red. And thus ends the shallow portion of this post. Oh wait, one more thing...if Prentiss' clothes got any tighter....not quite a complaint, I'm just saying.
*I'm kinda over JJ being mom. First she had little to no personality, though not an unlikable character, and now she is just Mom. I would like to know JJ. Dont know if its gonna ever happen but it would be nice.
*Garcia not letting Prentiss interrupt her *ta-da*.....I love her the mostest.
*The end with Prentiss, Reid, and Morgan. I love my team shits and giggles. And I always wonder what Morgan listens to on his iPod. I have a feeling he takes his music very seriously.

Subtext for all the ships but mine, Bernero is a cruel bastard. For real. Sin to win weekend gives me plenty to work with though, believe me. And watching her bitch Reid at cards was worth the price of admission.

Scene in the tattoo parlor....priceless. I really loved Rossi this week and that made me feel sooooo good. Because I love loving him. I loved my whole team, and I loved this episode.

Next week looks like trauma for Garcia and holy hell, the team is wearing coats. Five damn seasons and I've never seen Hotch in a coat. And did you see....he's standing next to Prentiss. C'mon Ed, hook a sistah up. I love you boy!

What did you guys think? Oh, and I now have 6 people who have given in and read a Rossi/Strauss and that makes me happier than a pig in slop. Who's next? Give it a try. Liking it isnt a requirement but you'll never know if you dont try. My latest AU, Of Facial Hair and Freudian Slips is up at [ profile] lairofthemuses.

It's been ages since I felt like I was watching Criminal Minds when the episode was airing so imagine my joy when tonight's show was so great! THIS felt like MY show again. I'm praying it stays that way.

Rossi wins big with me this week. He was so funny without meaning to be. And don't ask me why, but the guy at the tattoo place that kept asking to see the body cracked me up too. He was like a five year wanting to see the circus.

Reid LOSING at poker to Prentiss was fabulous too. Especially since she let him think he'd won for a second or two before lowering the boom. :)

All in all an episode that will make my top 5 for the season. :)

Yes, to everything you said except I wont be picking a Top 5 till I can actually see this season without major interruption. I cant wait for the DVDs. Then I will be a happy girl : )

And yes, thumbs up for Rossi. They were killing me making him obnoxious since I've pretty much loved him from the word go.

So, you ready to give Rossi/Strauss a try ; )

No thanks. ;)

I will admit my mind went to a Rossi and Garcia fic when he called her kitten though. Not a pairing, just a gen fic with them as friends. The two of them are almost always entertaining.

Yeah, I was thinking about good Rossi/Garcia fic. Not necessarily shippy but a little more than gen.

I am so all about Rossi/Strauss now, I'm asking everyone to join the love train : )

From: [identity profile]
I wish I could get on that train with you, but I just can't. I can't get past how she's treated Hotch.

And that's exactly what I mean about the Rossi/Garcia fic...nothing shippy. Their conversations are usual one of the highlights of the show for me.

From: [identity profile]
I totally understand, believe me.

I never really remember Garcia and Rossi having too many conversations. I just dont read or write many gen fics....I love it with the shades of shippiness. Nothing overt but just enough to leave the reader wondering maybe.

this,love,love, is all i have to say

other than the no h/p (seriously are they afraid if tg&pb actually have a scene together the world will end? oh personal theory...h/p are together so much off the case that they have to set new personal on case boundaries :) )

anyways my criminal minds is definitely back...and i couldn't be happier

-interesting and different spin on a kidnapping
-how frustrating must it have been for the last vic...this close..unsub dead....key just out of reach...i would have been tearing my hair out
-team interactions were stellar
-hotch was oh so hot (seriously every week its like...damn)
-emily must hurt to be that awesome (i know i totally fangirl her every week...but every week...pure unadulterated awesome) (also..loved the dress in the

now i am really curious as to what "sin to win" means....can't wait for the fanfic interpretations ;)

IDK, I'm kinda scared of the fic "sin to win" interpretations....some writers are wild! I may try my hand at it though.

I know, I cant believe we got bupkis but I stick to my original plan of the rules separating personal and professional must always be obeyed. They had a little "sin to win" as soon as they got home and made sure Jack was sound asleep : )

It was a phenomenal episode.

Looks like Prentiss is back with bangs! :)

She's had them since The Fight. I dont love them, I loved the other style better but the bangs are very "Prentiss".

Oh I must have thought they were a different style then. lol *facepalm* They suit her.

I loved this episode too, it's was awesome :D
Prentiss looks really hot in red, Jesus, she's dangerous, very dangerous !
I really don't like when Hotch wears this blue shirt and plus the tie was so ugly . He does look so GOOD in white shirts without his suit jacket or even better with Kevlar(:
And Why does Hotch always get to stick with JJ ? It's becoming kind of annoying, IMO .
The end was just FABULOUS, I loved that scene so much <3

I really really need some Hotch/Prentiss subtext, I'm dying over here. Hope we'll have something in the next one.

btw, What's Sin To Win ? I have something in mind but I'm not really sure if It is what I think .

ooh, I already figured out what that could possible mean *facepalm* :D

Yeah, I dont know what exactly she meant by "sin to win" but I could surely guess and I like what I'm guessing.

Yeah, the whole Hotch and JJ as tortured working parents is getting tired. I dont know what's going on, everyone seems to get a little bit of something except us and its quite obnoxious. It wont stop me from loving my show but I would love to see something like in Haunted or Outfoxed again before the season ends. Making it up is fun but seeing it onscreen is better.

Hotch's ties are always ugly but luckily he is always so handsome I hardly care. Kevlar Hotch = my favorite : )

Yes, in red Prentiss is the hottest. I actually love her the most in pink, its innocent and makes her even more beautiful....but I am so biased.

I was very happy with tonight's episode.

Sin to Win is now the 11th most popular search in the past hour on Google. This amuses me.

"Kitten" was an amazing note.

Hotch was wonderful. (Did you notice that he and Rossi matched at the end?)

I liked the Rossi and Prentiss in the car scene - and you're right, she looks good in red.

In my own little (unrealistic) world, the final victim adopts the child. I realize that realistically that would be unwise and she couldn't possibly hold it all together for a recovery with a baby, let alone the constant reminder.

Do we get to request a fic in which sin to win somehow includes Hotch?

YESSSS. Next week looks awesome. I will be so exhausted and jet lagged, but I want to see it!!!

Rossi was amazing this week. I feel that if good caps of that episode were found, they would make amazing icons. But it's the good caps that's hard.

YAY! That's a great start. :)

No fic requests right now. In my head, Prentiss is a little pregnant. She's not sinning that hardcore, unless you count the fact that she's out of wedlock.

I didnt notice Rossi and Hotch were matching at the end I was too busy rolling my eyes over JJ and the constant kid questions. But I'm not surprised.

I'm just glad Becky got out of it alive and I'm glad she brought the baby into the world safely because she doesnt need that guilt too on top of everything else. Poor kid...I hope she finds an excellent trauma specialist.

They were all amazing in this episode even though the lack of subtext upset me greatly. I mean, I dont need much but there was nothing. Even Murry commented on that.

Good Rossi icons FTW!!!!

Heh. That's good. Pregnant with Hotch's kid in one of your verses or something else?

LOL. I try to pay attention to my two favorite profiling guys. :P

Absolutely. She needs a lot of help and support. That's not something you just get over like that in a few months or a year.

So sad. Next week, I hope, will be better.

I dont quite understand the question about Emily. Emily is pregnant with Bree in my main universe. I have 2 and a half regular one in which they get together the night Haley leaves, my Something More universe when they get together after the events of 100, and my half-universe of random stories I shoot out when they are just getting together or I feel something in an episode or in my mind touches on something I need to discuss.

I'm excited for last week because the case looks compelling but also because cold weather always makes me think of Hotch/Prentiss canoodling. I'm hoping beyond hope for subtext, or vibes, or any damn thing really.

Just curious. I was basically asking what universe. Pregnant and not married could go any number of ways. :)

Yessssss. Even a freakin' awesome cap of them would do. :P

Yeah, they get married just a few months after she finds out she's pregnant. Hotch was ecstatic because he wasnt sure he could have gotten her to accept his proposal any other way.

Yes, a couple of screencaps would be really nice.

Hotch is ecstatic because he got himself some Emily and he gets to keep her too. :)

Mm hmm. If they gave us caps, flirtz, and subtext, I would be ever so happy.

Caps, flirtz, and subtext....that's never going to happen. Though I would be happy to eat my words : )

Oh he gets to keep her alright, forever and ever. 30 years and still going strong.

"Sin to win?
Oh yes,and I ALWAYS win"

Every time I think it's impossible to love the woman even more BANG! a line like this.Can I be her when I grow up?Pretty please?
Also the Emily/Garcia moments were awesome.And so was the last scene on the plane.Pwning Reid and Morgan at the same time.Go,Emily!:D
Shipper wise the episode was blah.At least for us.Maybe we have a sign on our forheads 'Don't feed the shippers' or something.Ed,you have only a few episodes left,so please DO SOMETHING.K,thx bye.

Emily is an amazing character and they are finally giving us these little glimpses into who she is. Derek was so right, "there is another side altogether to that woman". She is so intriguing, I just want to spend a weekend with her having fun. I think after almost 4 years the fun side of Paget is starting to come out in Emily.

I really, really, really want some subtext though. I dont want to be one of those fans that always bitches about it but seriously, I am starting to feel overlooked and its ticking me off. We just want to have fun with something but I think if they keep opening the vault on Prentiss' character, which is no promise, it will pull the possibility of her and Hotch getting closer, even as friends, because he is such a closed book. And I'm yawning over him and JJ as the "parents" so now they seem to have a lot to talk about. Gimme a break. I dont usually like to complain about something that really isnt a part of the show and not my draw to it anyway, but its ticking me off. Long comment was long.

Great episode, great team effort, great Emily!

i agree with this^

i just think ed is wasting a huge opportunity...not saying anything romantic has to ever happen with H/P...but its obvious that as actors TG&PB have a very natural chemistry, that is seemingly being wasted just because Ed doesn't want "ships" to rule an episode

most shows would kill for two actors with something that obvious and natural (seriously if we can pull subtext from them just standing near each other...the chemistry...they is doing it right :) )

I feel that by at least showing their friendship we could learn so much more about both characters...which is definitely lacking, instead we get retreads of Hotch and JJ are parents...and Emily likes to joke on Reid and Morgan (don't get me wrong I love that...just..need...more)

sorry bout the was a great episode, I guess I just need something to complain about :)

Their chemistry cannot be denied....the chemistry between the whole cast is amazing. That's why its so obvious those two arent allowed to play in the sandbox together. It would be amazing I think. Even though its angsty, I think of that scene in Demonology when she tells him about Matthew....the chemistry was just crackling and Hotch was halfway across the room. Ed better give us something soon. It can only make the show better, not worse.

I just watched the last scene, with Reid and Prentiss playing poker.
I agree with what you said about Prentiss in red. And that scene - where she won.....damn woman, why so hot?

She really is made of win, totally. I love her, her spark, her just radiates.

Oh, I agree with this soooo much.
