Preacher is an oily creepy man.

Well I can 't say I'm surprised at the ending, but I'm surprised at the preview of next week's finale.

yes, the preview for next week insinuates that someone is going to die! 0_0

Insinuates, but does not exactly say; the exact wording was: "say goodbye forever", which may simply mean that a character is leaving the BAU.

My money is on Cruz leaving. He's a throw away. I can't imagine anyone else actually leaving the series at this point.

I am curious as to who was pulling the preacher's strings and exactly why. I thought it was a good episode. Kept me interested for the whole hour. I'm not surprised by the gunfight, but Reid being in the middle of it is not the norm. His take downs are usually much quieter. Ouch for Morgan too. Though he's always running into danger so.... I was pleasantly surprised by Blake tonight. She's usually wallpaper for me but her comments to the coroner were pretty snippy, and well deserved.

Looking forward to next week.

Apparently it is indeed the case that in at least some parts of the Lone Star State, the local justice of the peace doubles as coroner, with no medical background required: https://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online/articles/sif01

"Which UNSUBS were the creepiest?" (Delivered with a certain roadkill-gawking glee.)

Officer Peggy Hill is on the case.

Peggy Hill! Love it. Great reference.

I know it is true in some other states besides Texas that a medical degree is not required to be a coroner. Still, I felt bad for all Texas residents last night. Between the coroner and the deputy the folks down there came off as pretty incompetent.

Thank God for rick for writing a decent episode and not revealing the unsub six minutes in.

It's kind of sad that I know Morgan is okay because his contract is through next year (though it is possible that he breaks his contract). And because of the promo, I know Reid is okay.

Lots of twists in here and i really thought the Preacher would bow down at end and not engage in a shooting frenzy so that was insane. I see that two BAU agents are down including Reid! 0_0 From the preview of the finale, it seems that they're going to kill off someone. It's going to be craaaazzzyyy!
I still want to know more of the suave and good looking unsub.... :-0

First episode I've seen in months...yeah this show needs to be over last year. It just gets more and more ridiculous. Sometimes I wonder what possesses talented actors to keep beating a dead horse...I feel like CM hired the idiots who wrote the last season of Dexter. Ick.

Bite your tongue, you're in a Criminal Minds community and there's no need to say that this show needs to be over.

I must say, I love the show. I love previous seasons and count it as one of my favorite series.

Are we not allowed to be critical of anything?

This post asked for discussion, it didn't say we are not allowed to speak our minds. I do realize this is the internet where disagreeing with someone is tantamount to murder (apparently). I can be a fan of the show and still think it needs to end its course. The further it goes on IMO the more it dissolves into something it shouldn't be. Writers run out of ideas, character development takes a dive into the most ridiculous (I mean the whole movie theater thing when Hotch was dying? That's just lazy writing). I can still love the show and love the characters. I am mature enough to be able to say that the thing I love needs to be over before it becomes the thing I can no longer stand.

Take Dexter, for example. A great show with good writing and excellent acting. Amazing character development. Even the most hardcore fans will tell you to just pretend the last season (or last three seasons) never happened. It's only because we are fans and care so much that we break it down and get critical---we want it to be the best it can be.

Man, I love my parents and my husband but even they hear every once in a while when they are being butts. But apparently I'm to just bite my tongue and speak only high praises. I think it is people such as yourself, _touched, that perhaps should bite their tongue and learn to accept opinions and critical interpretations from others that are not identical to your own.
