Susan’s TV Talk: Criminal Minds


“Well, that blows.”

Yes, friends, that’s what I said to the Tour Manager at the conclusion of last night’s season finale.

Ideas who was in that exploding black truck? I’d love to discuss it in the comments, so comment away and let’s speculate ourselves silly!

    You’ve such a way with words, SHG ;)BR/BR/I missed the finale. Then again, I’m not a consistant watcher so I shall remain ‘unspeculative’ 😉

    Specualation on who was in the van…huh. Well I dont think it was Garcia. BR/A) they already almost killed her once.BR/B) the person got into the driver’s side so that leaves it…BR/BR/Reid, Hotch, Derrick, and JJBR/BR/I don’t know. My gut says Hotch. Which will totally suck because I can’t see the team without Thomas Gibson–period. I hate to see any of them go. I really do, but if I had to choose I’d say JJ or Derrick. Hotch is just too intense and knows exactly what he’s doing. Reid is just one of those characters that stick with you. BR/BR/Who would you choose?BR/BR/Hugz!BR/Donica

    Yep, not Garcia. BR/BR/I think it’s Hotch, too. That leaves room for Derrick to move up and take over his job — thus the foreshadowing of the “they’re looking at you for her job.”BR/BR/Reid’s a possibility because they haven’t given him much of a storyline of late. But on the other hand, he’s a fan favorite. BR/BR/So’s Derrick, BUT the actor’s hot. Maybe he wants to move to bigger and better?BR/BR/Hmm. I can make arguments for them all. I hope it’s not Hotch ’cause I want to see him and Prentiss get together already!

    I just read this post in my feed reader and thought, why the hell have you seen the season’s finale only now when even I saw it a week ago (and I live in Germany). But then I noticed the post’s date. Duh.BR/BR/I can’t say who it was in the blown-up car, but I have it on good authority that whoever it was got not blown to kingdom come, apparently, but got only hurt. So it doesn’t really matter, because I take that to mean that no-one is gonna leave the show. Yay for that.BR/BR/I hope it was JJ and her guy that get blown up. I am not much of a fan of her and I absolutely despise that guy with his mumbling accent – wouldn’t mind him being blown into tiny little pieces…BR/BR/Oh, and just one little nit-picky thing: it’s BDerek/B Morgan. Please. (Derrick is a german tv detective and he’s a really old and ugly guy.) 😉

    I wondered about the spelling. Thanks, Samulli.BR/BR/Yeah, I’m not big on JJ’s dude, either. He’s too effeminate for me — not in the “Ooh, he’s gotta be gay” sense as much in the sense that he doesn’t come across as strong and a good partner for her. *I* think.BR/BR/So no one dies? That’s a bit of a bummer…

    I don’t think it’s Garcia, Reid or Derrick – they’ve all had their own dramas and become memorable characters. That said, Hotch seems like the one which means maybe he isn’t – you know how they twist these things up! JJ or Emily are probably the most dispensable in characters and Emily came in as a replacement anyway. Joe Mantegna just got here when Mandy Patinkin bowed out so he’s probably still around for awhile. On the other side, maybe it’s no one from the normal cast. Hotch did say that Derrick was next in line for the New York job, so maybe it was the lady (can’t remember her name) that Hotch knew and Derrick hated?
