Loved the episode. Knew who the stalker was just because they used a well known actress. I also knew Mauve would diie because I read about next weeks episode where it said Spencer would be dealing with a personal loss. Besides that the episode was amazing. This season has been really good. I am looking forward to see who the photographer and the unsub copying the murders the team has solved. Is it the same person? Is it that creepy photographer from season 6? Or someone we haven't met?

This episode was super intense, but I've got to say I think there has to be a way to obtain character vulnerability without killing their spouses. We have the unforgettable Hotch incident where he lost his wife, Rossi loss his first wife (albeit to cancer, but still emotionally fraught), J.J. nearly loss her spouse, and now Reid has to lose his hubby. Come ON.... Somebody deserves a happy and long relationship.
I think someone already said this but Michelle Trachtenberg is a big actress which automatically made me suspect her larger involvement in the plot. Nevertheless, I found her truly mesmerizing in the role. I find episodes where the team pulls together to help each other the best. I wasn't surprised that Reid chose Blake; she was the first person he told about Maeve. He's talked the most about Maeve to Blake.
The only thing I did have trouble discerning was whether Trachtenberg was just Maeve stalker or if she was larger seasonal stalker who was trying to get at Spencer through Maeve. I guess I had my timeline wrong :( My biggest question is how will this event affect the team and its dynamic?

while i like seeing ried as human....this story just fell flat for me....he didn't want to see what the woman looked like, before he went there....yet, he would have seen her at the dinner.

Michelle Trachtenberg did an amazing/fantastic job on this episode although I think It would've been much more better if she reprised her cancelled NBC show "Mercy" as Nurse Chloe Payne and not as a stalker. Because that's how I felt like and knew before watching this episode. Also That way it would've been much more funner and interesting to see this other option/new take the the show.

Didn't like the ending, poor Dr. Reid. It was a good show. Not as gorry.

While I think this episode was an astonishing display of great acting by Reid and great writing by the staff, I think that they lost us at the end. We've watched Reid evolve and he's become the most intriguing character on the show. It would have been nice to see this relationship evolve a little and with Maeve's cir!$#!#stances of being captured, losing her (ex) fiancee, and meeting Reid, this would have made for some interesting sub-stories in the upcoming episodes. I'm greatly hoping for a twist of fate, but also wondering if perhaps Matthew Gray Gubler is leaving the show and they are trying to antagonize his character. Regardless, I think it was a fail for loyal viewers who are SO interested in Spencer's progression.

I am so heartbroken for Reid, but this was definitely one of the best episodes of the season. I've gotten so used to Criminal Minds have mainly happy endings for the final victim that it was definitely both shocking and refreshing to have this one end in sadness, especially since it revolved around Reid. At first I thought Maeve survived when I saw Diane's body, but the ultimate murder-suicide (with the bullet going through both Diane AND Maeve's heads) took that fleeting hope away from me. I like the show doing personal episodes, because it gives the characters humanity and shows a life outside of their jobs. Overall, I really liked the ending, however unhappy it may be, because no good show always ends happily. Nice balance, I just wish it wasn't at the expense of Reid. Poor guy.

I'm curious to know if whether he's trying to kill our main characters of the show or must be something.

on gather.com. Because this season on some episodes, they show a scary stalker and scary music that's trying to reveal and I think lead up to the season finale.
