I Love You, Tommy Brown
I think my favourite part of this episode was the opening scene with the teenage couple. With the narration and the music, it was kind of misleading and I thought something was going to happen to one or both of them, not her parents.
I also really enjoyed the interaction between Kevin and Morgan, although this sort of thing would normally annoy me, in this case it didn’t. It is an important event and insight into one of the main team members, but I didn’t feel that too much of the ep was spent on it.
I am so over knowing who the UNSUB is from before the opening credits roll. That seems to be the theme this season and I am just tired of it. There is no suspense or mystery left for those of us watching every week. The scene with the team working together to come up with a profile in the plane was great.
Even though we see bits and pieces of the team profiling at scenes, etc., I almost felt as if they were absent from the ep. The UNSUB doesn’t seem as interested in getting her baby back as she does getting her child lover back – and the best way to achieve that is to get the baby back. The woman, Maggie, is just seriously sick and has her priorities all out of order. And is Tommy really naïve enough to believe all of her lies? Yes, she is very manipulative, but can he honestly not think for himself? Hopefully he is enlightened at the end when she calls Tommy by the wrong name.
I’m sorry, but the only parts of the ep that really worked for me were the interaction between Morgan, Garcia and Kevin. And I can’t believe I just wrote that. Please bring back the action, mystery and suspense. CM just isn’t the same as it used to be for me and I really miss that. What do you think?
