Given the quality (or lack thereof) of the writing on some of these shows I expect either that it was a civilian who happened to be getting into his black SUV at the same time as the agents OR whichever agent was in the exploding car will not be QUITE dead, will be attended to by a doctor who just HAPPENED to be passing by and will be rushed to the California version of St. Vincent's to be patched up.

I like this show very much, especially since Joe M. came on board, but I harbor no illusions as to the integrity of its scripts.

I guess the Hours before the Finale aired, the exec Prod said one of the team members will be severely injured.
post #156 of 418
I'm thinking it was Morgan who was in the exploding SUV. They just focused too much on him with the whole him being the "next in line" for a certain position.
post #157 of 418
Yea, Wasn't he the only one that they actually showed walking toward the car and hearing the ignition. I hope the team stays together.

Seems all the CBS Crime Finales this week had something BIG happening. This Fall should be good.

Or after the Writers Strike that CBS put all its LEO show writers in the same room together.

CM: "Okay...were going for a blown up car for the 'hanger"

CSI: "NO! That's what we were going for...guess we go for assassination in the car."

NCIS: "NO!" That's what we were going for...guess we do it in a building instead."

CSI-M: "NO! That's what we were going for...guess we do it out in the open instead."

CSI-NY: "NO! That's what we were going for...guess we do everything but pull the trigger."

Well, I liked how they shaked everything up for the most part. Not a big fan of CSI M or NY either.
post #160 of 418
I suspect it's Morgan. As someone before said, they focused on him too much and that way they can bring in the blond brit girl. Maybe she can get a smile out of Mr. Personality! My wife and I rewound and slo-mo'd the final scenes and the suv and street scene makes led me to my conclusion.

That seems to be the note that everyone passed around. FOX has been killing people off and writing cast members out with ludicrous finale twists as well.

I'm surprised CBS didn't shoot the kid on Two and a Half Men for shock value.

Now, that's funny right there...I don't care who you are.

Can anyone see a loose connection with this show and scooby-do?

Did the same thing. . Based on the surroundings, I ruled out JJ and Dr. Reid. Based on the truck, it can't be Prentiss (her license plate was in a different position). But I think it could be any of the others.

That said, I don't expect a TV show to be too accurate with the exploding car (i.e., it's possible that Prentiss died, even though it obviously wasn't her truck.)

And what kind of budget does the BAU have? They take a private plane to NY, then each of the agents gets their own black SUV?

there's no guarantee that whoever was in there is dead either!

I'm saying JJ if only for the reason that when they restart filming she'll be very very pregnant or about to give birth and she probably wants to send some time with the baby.

That and the fact she was the only one who was off to a happy relationship. That's far too cheery for Criminal Minds. They all have to be miserable and damaged. I think smiling is fatal in their job.
post #166 of 418
I think it was mogan too,when i paused the dvr i could see his brown shirt sleeve as he closed the door then the suv blew up. I really hope they didnt kill anyone off as i like all the actors in this show.
post #167 of 418
Anybody think that JJ's boyfriend looks like kd Lang???
post #168 of 418
just an observation if it is Morgan than it brings the token black character quota down. CSI killed off Gary Dourdan,Candi Alexander is off CSI Miami. I will admit all the cliffhangers are fun.
post #169 of 418
The cliff hanger for CM was almost identical to that of ER. In both cases, an exploding vehicle and we're not supposed to know which cast member was involved. It would seem that the folks who write for television are really running out of original ideas.

And just when did it become mandatory to have these cliff hangers at the end of every season?

When JR Ewing got shot. That's when they found out that a summer full of just this kind of water-cooler speculation is worth more than any advertising they can buy.

Since the FBI in CM World seems to have a fleet of black SUVs in every city, you kind of gotta assume that local agents are assigned one, too. Which means the person in the car could very well be the British girl. Which gives Shemar Moore's character some drama to contend with in the fall.. should he take the job or not?

On the other hand, Shemar's star is rising and the show may be holding him back from doing other projects.

If they were going to kill off JJ, they wouldn't have invented the boyfriend story line to cover AJ's real pregnancy that's really not showing yet. Or they would have brought Louisiana Boy on board a whole lot sooner so we'd be emotionally invested in their relationship.

Though I wouldn't mind seeing Paget Brewster's character go away. Loved the actress in "Huff" but not so much here. Maybe it's because she did more underwear scenes in "Huff." And I'm really tired of the bangs.
post #171 of 418
I think I can rule out at least two charactors.

I re-watched the episode on DVR and slo-mo'ed thru the final scenes.

The car that blew up was a Chevy with duel rear doors and a licence plate on the rear bumper.

Reed is clearly seen getting into a GMC truck.

Prentice gets into a Chevy but it has a single hatch type rear door with the plates in the middle of the rear door right under the Chevy Bow tie design.

So barring a continuity screw up neither of them are dead.

My wife has the theory that the exploding car is actually in the road stopped at a red light and none of the main charactors had started their cars and had time to drive away so nobody is dead.

That's funny, I was thinking the exact same thing while reading these posts yesterday, I liked her in "Huff", but wouldn't miss her one bit in this role. Also agree about the bangs...

Something else I've noticed this season, while I like Joe Mantegna, he really hasn't seemed to have much impact, certainly not as dynamic a force as Patinkin was.

Now that you mention it, yes. Although not as clone like as the young Donny and Marie Osmond.

I was thinking that but it's probably because Patinkin was the lead when it started (by a slim margin) and this time around that role went to next in line - Hotch.

Could be why they are killing someone. So they can give Mantegna a bigger presence.

Actually, if Hotch was the one that bites the dust I think it would be good for the show. Not only is he way too dull, his angst over job vs family is not really working for me. I think they have at least one too many people in the cast. Removing Hotch would open up the lead position for Rossi, and allow more screen time for the rest of them.

I think the most fascinating character on the show is Reed. The episode(s) where he and JJ were held captive, and the recent one about the kid in Texas, were excellent TV. The actress who plays JJ was very good in those earlier eps as well, but not so good over all throughout the season.

What's funnier is the fact that it's always the same SUV regardless of what city they're in. If you look closely at past episodes, the license plate on the SUV is always the same (since I'm sure they're using the same prop vehicle on the set for each shoot). So they fly to CA and get the same SUV as when they fly to NY.

And they've always only had one or two SUVs per show until this one--which is silly since there was no other reason for each of them to have their own except to set up the cliffhanger.

Yep - it set up the possibility of a spin-off: Criminal Minds NY.

I'm still guessing that it's JJ. Rumor has it that none of the main characters is dead, but someone is seriously hurt. They could kill of the boyfriend and the baby to pave the way for her to return later in the next season.

My guess is she'll have a miscarriage and her romance with the cajun man will end.

Anything is possible, but that would be in extremely poor taste, as she is actually pregnant.

LOL I didn't realize that the actress herself was pregnant. Oops. I guess the question is how far along and will she have delivered by the time they start filming again.

But yes, a bit creepy of a plotline in that context.
