Tonight’s 2 hour Criminal Minds season finale was a lot more action packed than usual and included a huge explosion. It was also riddled with symbolism as we prepared to say goodbye to S.A. Emily Prentiss for a second time. I’ve written up an in depth recap over at my gig on The Celebrity Cafe at the links below. They are separated into two different reviews since it was a 2 hour episode.

Please feel free to leave me some comments over there!
On tonight’s episode of Criminal Minds I saw one of the coolest retro rag shirts EVER. It was a light blue Book It shirt. Once I saw it I knew I had to have it. It’s a great way to be super styling and remind my kids that reading is important. So if you also saw this shirt or maybe just like the sound of it, you can find it in the Book It Store. It’s only $14. I absolutely must purchase it right now! Yes I’m a total nerd, I’m okay with it!
Breaking news states that Paget Brewster will be leaving the cast of Criminal Minds at the end of this season. I think we all knew that she was unhappy on the show. She has made Tweets a few times about how she loves the people but is ready to move on and do different things. I for one can say I’ll support whatever decision she makes and do my best to watch whatever new show in which she stars. My heart is breaking for yet another loss of Emily Prentiss. But hey, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.
Looks like everyone besides Matthew Gubler has renewed their contract so far. The word is he is currently renegotiating. I’m torn. Part of me knows for a fact that without Dr. Reid this show won’t work, it will be canceled immediately because he is one of the biggest reasons people tune in. However the other side of me realizes that his heart is in directing and not acting. I’m sure he loves Spencer Reid and that Spencer is a part of him, but there is probably more out there for this budding director.
Entertainment ExactLee With Criminal Minds Show Runner Ed Bernero
Over at my friend Jill’s blog http://www.criminalmindsfanatic.blogspot.com she has a great story up about my favorite show Criminal Minds. The basis is that Executive Producer Ed Bernero has announced he is leaving the show and AJ Cook (who plays JJ Jareau) is in talks to come back for the following season. Looks like maybe, just maybe Paget Brewster will be back as well.
Unfortunately Shemar Moore and Thomas Gibson are still in contract negotiation so we aren’t positive they will be coming back. I for one don’t think I’d watch the show if Hotch left. I just can’t imagine it. As much as I love Shemar, though not as much as Shemar loves Shemar, I would watch without him. He is great but doesn’t add an addiction appeal. My one true deal breaker is Spencer Reid. The show without Spencer Reid wouldn’t be the show anymore. It would fall apart. I don’t think many would watch.
