Season Premiere of Criminal Minds

Hotch, Alex and J.J. investigate an escaped convict who’s sewing his victim’s mouths shut.

Emily has left the BAU and I don’t think she’s coming back this time. Criminal Minds ended Season seven with the exit of Paget Brewster, something fans had seen before, and J.J.’s wedding. Finally! I love when we get to see the agents with their families. But, before those monumental moments I was on the edge of my seat with worry for J.J’s family.

If you’ll remember, they got caught up in the bank robbery the team was investigating. I kind of had a bad feeling they were in for a rough day. The episode started with a big happy moment for. That’s the warning sign that your day is doomed.

Tonight’s premiere picks up after Emily Prentiss quit to oversee Interpol’s London office. There is a chance she’ll come back for a visit, but that’s about it. In the meantime Alex Blake (Jeanne Tripplehorn) will be filling the void. I will admit, I’m suspicious about how she will work with the team dynamic. What do you think? Will she be a nice addition?

The serial killer in tonight’s episode sews his victims mouth shut. The weird part to me is that the “UnSub” or unknown subject is an escaped prisoner. We’ve had a lot of those around here lately.

I will be tweeting during the show so be sure to share your comments. Click here to follow me.

Dad: I can’t watch that show. It’s too twisted.

Me: I know. That’s why I love it. Studying the mind of serial killers, figuring out what motivates their crimes, and understanding why they chose their victims.

Dad: You’re weird.
