YES! They are going there with Reid.Can't wait!Great site, by the way.Al
NO!!! omg no...this is turning out to be THE WORST season EVER!! =(
I don't think it'll be schizophrenia because the character would have to leave the BAU. Can you imagine a schizophrenic FBI Agent ?I think it'll turn out to be a physical issue, like a brain tumor (other fans have already speculated about that possibility some time ago) and not a mental disease.
Oh no! I do not want Reid really sick or schizophrenic! Can't he have a fun secret?
may be the ritualitics murders give to Reid LSD or somethings like that, they know his addiction in the past (revelations) oh no! poor baby!Chantou The gublerlander
It should be tear-jerking yet fascinating, if it turns out to be what some of us have thought would be an interesting storyline: that something happens to Reid to make him lose his "genius abilities", and him having to deal with all of the repercussions of this - even perhaps going so far as to have him mentally challenged for a while.Of course, after treatment, etc. he will be back to normal again.
Reid is being drugged by another member of the team who resents his genius status and wants him out of the way. Hmm?
poor reid. i guess im a bit sadistic since im just glad we are finally getting a Reid episode!
Grrr it's my worst nightmare. I swear I HATE those damn writer for screwing up my Spence. Spence is my favorite character.
It looks like a meaty storyline for Reid, I love it and I'm really happy since he's my favorite character.And Reid deserves so much better than a storyline involving a crush or a lame romance.I'm excited and I can't wait to see what happens.
Happy we are finally getting a storyline for Reid, been awhile since we had a Reid episode!
I actually felt a lump in my throat after reading the summary for this episode and I really do hope its something like a brain tumor because i cant see a mentally ill agent working for the BAU not that I want reai to be ill at all but I'd prefer something that can be fixed =P
So happy that we are FINALLY getting a Reid episode! I'd almost given up hope. This sounds like a fantastic storyline for Reid, chock-full of angst. I'm so glad he's getting a meaty, emotional secret rather than some fun one or, hopefully not, some lame, boring relationship storyline. We've had so little Reid since S4,the character (and MGG) deserves a decent, emotional, character developing storyline this year.
CBS's done it again, I fear! Should we then be ready to start a campaign to keep MGG on CM? If they finally choose the schizophrenic way and turn Reid into a sicko, we'll certainly lose him. FBI wouldn't allow an schizophrenic at the BAU, and Reid would become incapacitated in the end. Sad to hear this, maybe it's time to quit and stop watching the show if we finally have come to this point. Since I don't trust CBS and the CM team any more, I assume it has happened. But maybe it had been writers' plan for Reid from the beginning. I had always feared for it to come. Sad news.
Look people! Stop worrying if reid will get kicked off or not. They already ate hell from fans who are STILL complaining over losing JJ. Plus, Reid has a zillion more fans than her. If they kick off reid they lose all their viewers
We would be EXTREMELY surprised if CBS would let Matthew go. Our guess is that whatever illness Reid got, it will not be something that will make Reid leave the BAU but maybe he will miss a few days of work. This will give time for Matthew to work directing another CM episode.
I truly hope you are right but they have been downplaying the character for a year and a half. It has been on entire calendar year since the Reid character has done an episode quote. Fans really do not understand why they have done this.
Finally a Reid episode!! It's been a really long time!! I was kind of hopng something like this would happen. Maybe he'll hallucinate Tobias Hankle. And I agree, I really don't think they're gonna get rid of Reid, that would be very bad for the show.
Tobias was awesome! i hope he comes back!!
We'll be missing you, Reid, we'll be missing you; Matthew. Christmas holidays are starting now, and I wouldn't be surprised to find that CBS had fired another member of the cast while on holidays, as they did to AJ last summer. I'd rather had Criminal Minds being canceled last season than watching how it's disintegrating this way. The writing team has definitely run out of imagination playing the schizophrenia card with Reid. It had always been there of course, but I always had had the hope that they would never use it. I can't but think that his days in CM are over, the writers seem to be unable to come up with a decent storyline for Reid, so they have possibly opted for eliminating him, like they did with JJ when she became a mom ( it's a Hollywood typical thing that moms should be invisible, disappear, die or not be seen on the screen). Maybe they think the same of loved young geniuses. Anyway, they've already lost me, I 'm not gonna be there watching how that happens. This show is rapidly deteriorating, and it should be the people who are screwing it who must go(writers, producers), not the actors.
Chill out Jademarisa, Reid will be find in the end.He's not leaving the show and he probably won't develop schizophrenia either.
OK im hopping that Reid has had like a sickness that the DR had to proscribe him a medicine that has a bad side affect and thats cosing all these things. Or like somebody said one of the team members is poising him like not anyone on the BAU but like one of the officers that they go help on cases. but i will not be ok if he has a brain tumor because those never work out i would no. but i don't think they would get ride of him seeing as everybody loves Reid...... PS, why does all the bad stuff happen to Reid
Not all the bad stuff happens to Reid.All the team members have suffered a great deal, and Hotch more than any of them (difficult childhood, having problems with Haley, Elle blaming him for getting shot, getting suspended to cover up for Gideon, his wife leaves him which leads to a nasty divorce and a son he doesn't see often, getting caught in a big car explosion, loosing a friend (Kate Joyner) in that explosion, suffering from hyperacusis which could have been permanent and ended his career, his feeling of guilt for the death of the bus passengers in 'Omnivore', car accident in Roadkill, being stabbed nine times by Foyet who causes his ex-wife and his son to leave, the murder of his ex-wife that now leaves him as a single dad...and there are many other things I didn't mention).Reid has suffered too, of course, but he's not the only one. I would love the brain tumor theory.People with brain tumors can be cured or the tumor can go into remission for a very long time (I know someone who is a brain tumor survivor, and it has been 25 years). I just hope that I won't be disappointed by the way the writers handle whatever they have planed for Reid.
good point on Hotch that is very true but i have also known somebody with a brain tumor it didn't end well for him but the good thing is its just a tv show but the better not get rid of him
You have to wait until January. I do not think that the production of CM delete the character's most popular show. In addition, the health problem may result from Reid how long you used drugs or infection of anthrax.
Hey everyone, I looked it up and there is nothing on if Mattew is leaving the show. I really like the brain tumor idea better then hjim having what his mom as. Me and my mom agree if they kill or kick Reid off the show we will never watch it again until he returns. I am sure another network will pick CM up if CBS drops it. I hopping that maybe Gideon will come back for an episode. I really hate when they hurt Reid hes my favourite chracters.
its driving me crazy they need to air this episode already
I agree with the person above they need to air the epsidoe already. Where is the picture on the top from?
thats a good question
The wording of the episode description makes me think (hope!) that it's not schizophrenia. Blinding headaches and hallucinations making him "worry for his health". That sounds physical to me, not mental. Something affecting his brain, yes, but I'm inclined to be more interested in the theories here (brain tumor, some sort of drug, etc.). Besides, if you ask me, Reid ALREADY shows signs of very faint schizophrenia or Asperger Syndrome (Matthew Gray Gubler has also hypothesized this in interviews, based on Reid's adorable lack of social skill). Suddenly going the "oh no, his mom is sick and now he has the same thing!" route just feels too tired and obvious to me.As long as it doesn't involve him leaving the show, I'm cool. I love him entirely too much. :)
If the picture is not from Corazon then I would say, Memoriam season 4 because that is when he was waking up from those dreams.I am just glad they are doing more Reid, as long as they write it well (like seasons 1-4) and don't get him kicked off the show I'm okay with them doing it a few different ways. Personally, I really like that they are going there with Reid.And it had better not be something simple that gets swept up at the end of the episode, they need to have a whole long storyline spanning multiple episodes, we need to make up for the lack of him for the past... too long that we have been without a good Reid episode.P.S. Its when bad things happen to Reid that we get more Reid time and more interesting episodes.
I am hopping in the upcomming episode that we will see more friendship stuff with Reid and Morgan. We really havn't seen much of it so I like to see more. As long as its not schizophrenia I will be very happy. Thanks Anoyymous above me.
the reason they make terrible things happen to read is because MGG is one of the few great actors on that show and he can do great with any sort of material
I agree he does do a great job. When Reid was kiddnapped by Tobias he was drugged, and beating. He even died for a few mintues and then came back to life. I have to say Mattew did a great job on that.
when does it aire because iv seen two day the 12 of jan or the 19 of jan
its next week. Becasue the the Presadent is going to talk on tv. So it will be on the 19th.
