I thought they worked well together, and kept a professional focus on the case. Edited March 29, 2018 by normasm After watching a second time, I like it better. I'd watch that, too :. Edited April 1, 2018 by KatsDivision My favorite trope, and I know they've done it on this show, is when there's a team that has a certain specialty, and they're presented with a case that at first looks like it's not something they usually handle, and so rather than: a. I want Reid and Emily to have a spin off. I want to know more about Emily's Spy-life.
Don't understand why Portia was so dismissive of Rossi. I do think it would made a better story if it centred around Brick and involved him killing Portia because Portia didn't get the profile or didn't want to believe it. I'd say she's about 10, 12 years younger than he, even on the show. But I liked the visuals. It worked and bye bye Wick. Now, if there's a moment with a contrarian its planned in advance, meaning natural contradictions in the story are never explained.
As for Rossi- what gets me more about Brick good name for him is that Garcia too picked up on his misogynist tendencies, and she's not a trained profiler. I had Wick penciled in as a baddie from the moment I saw him. That was 11 years ago in November, 2007. This would have worked better if Portia made the decision to end the wedding but wanted Rossi's input before she did so. I rejoiced that he's not romantic with Hayden anymore, and I liked his casual friendship with Krystall. As for Penelope, they really need to tone her character down. Assuming he was 18 at the time of the Tet Offensive in January 1968 the youngest he could reasonably be , that would mean he would have been born in 1949 at the latest, which means he would be no younger than 69 this year.
Edited March 29, 2018 by Old Dog I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Italicized part my actual thoughts during more than one scene. It's interesting how she's super dorky and has a hard time dating yet she's so badass. This is one I will be watching again and am already looking forward to next week. I would love to have that skill.
It was rather humorous to have likely virgin Spencer or at least nothing in this show has indicated he has had sex weighing in on the evolutionary advantages of multiple sexual partners. However, I must say I ship him with Tara, who seems to enjoy the heck out of him, and he reciprocates. I liked that the profile evolved, and that I could actually follow the evolution in a logical fashion. I remember the unsub started the conversation in the elevator by saying something about the stocks. I think he's really charming and a very attractive older guy so trying to make him look 15 years younger always struck me as a major fail. Edited March 29, 2018 by ForeverAlone I didn't like the ex-wife still being around at the end.
Rossi looked great with the gray, a guy comfortable in his own skin. On Days of Our Criminal Minds Lives. She actually spent more time investigating creepy fiance dude, and that was nice to see the team do their actual job. I also find it slightly odd that Garcia was just now learning about everything with Krystall. After watching a second time, I like it better. The ensemble drama relies on the diversity of the team, which includes a young genius and a seasoned leader tortured by a past case.
And I do agree the takedown with Cheryl was weird. And on a purely superficial note, I love that they've let his hair be gray and got rid of that black shoe polish look he's been sporting for too long. It would have been a very different kind of Entropy episode. My guess is that the writer was going for allegory, as the wick is what you would light to get something like a lamp or a candle burning. What kind of name is Wick? All in all, it was better than I thought it would be. I took the name Wick to be something an idiot would think sounded upperclass so renamed himself.
I can't believe they swept it under the rug for so long. However, I must say I ship him with Tara, who seems to enjoy the heck out of him, and he reciprocates. Why would a girl who has multiple copies of his book, so she must clearly be interested in profiling and think he's pretty special, totally disregard her hero's diagnosis? Didn't really buy Emily not thinking a woman would torture the guy. The staredown he had with Wick was one for the ages. Unlike other crime dramas that focus on science, this series is very cerebral and almost Holmesian in its deductive analysis of the crimes and their perpetrators.
From 26 years of teaching, I can tell you that Wick seems perfectly innocuous to me. The ensemble drama relies on the diversity of the team, which includes a young genius and a seasoned leader tortured by a past case. That was trippy, and not in a good way. I am kinda glad they didn't go that route, though I can definitely imagine Rossi keeping in touch with Krystall and Portia and towards the end I kept imagining Joy and Portia meeting someday, which could be kinda fun. Edit: Ignore this - I didn't realise they used it as a first name.
Reminded me of his character Joey Zasa. Didn't mind the case, though. I liked all the twists and turns. Sure when Rossi was introduced, he was 52 at the time. The staredown he had with Wick was one for the ages.
