Thoughts about Criminal Minds #100

Something that never quite sat right about this scene from 100 below (and so many other parts of the episode that followed).  She could call JJ to find him because he wasnt signing the divorce papers soon enough but she couldnt call her when some random stranger called and said Hotch was dead.  IDK, wasnt she aware of how cunning Foyet was?  And I would figure her and Sam Kassmeyer had more of an Eraser-type relationship, you know “I work alone”. 

The whole thing just never worked for me…Haley seemed way too inactive in her own protection and that of her son.  I know, its the unpopular opinion, I just always think that when I see this episode.  More and more things just come to my mind that make me say “no way in hell”.  I know Aaron would’ve protected her from most of what he did all day but seriously Haley, dont you watch TV?  She seemed so clueless and that was not OK.

I just dont understand when people say Hotch and Beth feel forced and rushed. She got up the courage to ask him on a bike ride after watching him train for a while as she did the same. He trained for nearly three months with her, and had a few lunches, before he got the courage to ask her out on a first date. They had their first date on Valentine’s Day. By that May, when they’d known each other for seven months she was spending time with him and his son. By the time they’d been together for a year it was established they were in a committed relationship that included sex and Hotch willing to make a serious go at long distance when Beth was offered a new job in another city. Where is the forced and rushed part?

I know many fans ship Hotch with a member of the team and feel like Beth is an interloper/stalker/insert ridiculous title here. I think its a silly reason to hate a character but what the hell, I cant stop that kind of thing from happening. But nothing about the relationship seemed forced or rushed to me. If anything, I wanted to see more of it even though I knew it wasnt probable. It was so fun to watch Hotch become Aaron again and have more to life than the BAU and single fatherhood (with all the grief and guilt he carries attached to that).

Sometimes, when someone is into something/someone that I’m just not into, I cannot understand it for the life of me. When I’m into something/someone and friends express that same thought I’m like “What? Its fuckin awesome!”, if its something I even want to talk about because most love I want to keep for myself because I dont want it to be stolen and used improperly because apparently I’m kinda snotty about the whole thing as well. Point is, I always do my best to remain objective and open-minded with everything friends are into. But sometimes I just cannot get it at all.

I hope this made any kind of sense. It just popped into my head and I had to write it down.
