Emily Prentiss has always been, and probably will always be, my favourite Criminal Minds Agent so I am always excited to hear when Paget is guest-starring.

I think the plot of the case (copycatting famous serial killers) was a good one with so much potential that they could have made more of it.  More of it in this episode by making it more thrilling and gripping when in reality it fell short of the mark, or have kept it for a multi-episode arc (Prentiss aside) to make a great finale.

So casewise it disappointed but the whole “happy families” element certainly didn’t.  It was great to see my favourite agent interacting with the others again and they dealt with Morgan’s absence well (although realistically we all know that if he knew Emily was in town, he would totally have made that Mexican dinner!).  The last segment where Prentiss impersonates Morgan to Garcia was brilliant and the whole montage of the team at dinner really echoed a similar scene in season 3(?!) when the team were eating Chinese.

I just wish they had managed to do Paget justice by producing a more gripping episode case-wise.
