Garcia: “I say we all demand vacation.”
Reid: “From who the guy who works three jobs? Good luck with that.”
“The Inspiration” is the season premiere of “Criminal Minds.” This article contains spoilers, so beware! Be sure to check out the slideshow for more quotes from tonight’s episode. “Criminal Minds” airs Wednesday nights at 8 on CBS (KHOU).
Strauss’s position as section chief has still not been filled. As the higher ups make a decision, Hotch has been filling the role. It makes sense that the personal storyline of the episode is essentially taking care of business at the BAU. Of course, a decision hasn’t been made yet. It would have been great to see maybe Hotch having a conversation with a higher up about the job. All the BAU gossip about Hotch is going to do is fantastic. It adds some humor to the episode. Do you think Hotch would be a good fit as section chief or is he made for the field?
Now if you’ve read any of my “Criminal Minds” reviews before, then you know I am not a fan of seeing the unsub. I prefer the old style where the viewers didn’t see the unsub until the BAU learned who it was. For this episode, it does make sense to follow Wallace around. The writers constantly throw twists in his scenes. Then on top of all of that, Wallace is suffering from hallucinations, and it helps understand things more by watching Heather berate him. There are enough twists and things with Wallace’s scenes that it’s intriguing to watch. Did you enjoy seeing Wallace or would you have enjoyed his identity being a mystery?
As it turns out, Wallace has a twin! Normally I wouldn’t spend a lot of time talking about the next episode, but the preview and the ending of this episode leaves a lot of questions. The guy who Morgan and JJ arrested acted way to calm for someone who had no reason to suspect the cops, let alone the FBI, were after him. This guy has to be also killing people and just hasn’t been caught. No one would comply that easily if all of this is coming out of nowhere. Personally, I would be upset that the FBI just wrecked my car. The writers have a lot of questions to answer about this twin, especially since in the promo he seems eager to join the killing spree. What did you think of this twist?
