Good Lord, this whole episode was like one bad acid trip, much along the lines of that horrible episode with aliens in "Miami Vice". I think I lost at least 15 IQ points between the first mention of the "shadow monster" and Hotch's Oh So Horrible Mindrape Experience. Gah. As for his most terrible fear, I'd have expected a flashback to Hotch's time in the hands of the Reaper, or, you know, something not invented by a junkie on a high.

"Criminal Minds"? You haven't been consistently horrible so far, which is the only reason I still watch you. But if this storyline is indicative of the "quality" of any further episodes yet to come?

Consider me done with you. I think my brain is bleeding.

Maybe they thought he'd kinda made his peace with the Reaper in season nine, when he collapsed and had this weird movie experience with Foyet and Haley? I don't know. *shrug*

But thanks for reminding me, I have so much catching up to do! So far I've only watched ep. 10x01, although I have dled all the rest. Good thing there's a staycation coming up...

I thought that episode was about Hotch making peace with letting go of Haley and moving on with somebody else (Beth?). I never got the impression that Hotch made peace with Foyet, though. Although that episode was its own kind of awesome. *g*

The movie theater. The wedding dress. Hotch's confusion. Popcorn.

When someone stabs holes into your body and starts to dig around them with their fingers (or other appendages, according to fanfiction), I don't believe that's something you get over. Ever.

Now I've successfully grossed myself out. Argh.

I certainly agree with you on the not something you get over. But it's the hug with Foyet in that episode that got me thinking along those lines.

And hey, Hotch in a tux! The episode could be the worst trash, I'd love it for that alone. *g*
