"There are no words."

No indeedy there aren't.

The show was fairly uneventful compared to some of the stranger or tenser episodes. It was rather easy to figure out if the audience was paying attention. I saw huge chunks of the plot unravel before the show got around to revealing it, so it essentially wasn't that great of an episode.

For instance (warning, spoilers ahead):

The girl, Kelly, she should have given up and tried the phone later. Though of course it all worked out OK. Plus, why did she keep trying to dial 911? Once it doesn't work try something else. She kept her wits about her I'll definitely give her that though. I probably would've been too freaked out. Though the fact that her captor was slower than she was mentally had to be a big calming agent.

Another thing, the method of body disposal reminds me of Secret Window and the corn. It was far more disturbing than simply eating the body, which is gross, but typical serial killer fare. The method of turning it into acceptable food stuffs is freaky. What have I bought at the store that used to be people? (I know I know, a lot probably because people didn't used to be buried so thoroughly).

But the real grabber was the ending. That is what made the piece a season finale. It was frightening and scary; and is the person really leaving?

the storyline reminded me a lot of 'Of Mice and Men' because the relationship that mason and lucus had was like that of Lennie and i can't remember the other guys name, but with a sinster twist. also any silence of the lambs fans, the thing with the pigs reminded me of 'Hannibal'. Ending was brilliant though, can't wait to find out what has happened, although i personally wouldn't be suprised if they were leaving the show tbh, would be interesting to see there replacement?

I thought it was really quite a poor effort for a series finale. The plot was poor, the characters cliches, the action dreadful. The only bright light was Sharif Atkins (Hightower) who was superb.The ending was, of course, completely unrelated to the episode and contained the cliffhanger. And a good one.But the rest of the episode - nope. Not up to standard, sorry.

I agree with you. The ending was the thing that made it a finale. The rest was a fairly standard episode, that was easily unraveled, and maybe that was the point. To get the audience relaxed and going "bah, this is stupid" before click.

LOL I found this extremely interesting because I used to live near Port Coquitlam, BC. A man named Robert Pickton kill allegedly dozens of people (hookers and junkies) and fed them to his pigs after maiming them. The pigs were then made into sausage. They could only convict pickton using teeth they found on the farm.
The worst part is... Pickton had a mentally challenged brother and managed to put most of the blame on him... getting a reduced sentence. He was only convicted for killing 6 women (or something liek that)

The one who shot Hotchner, I'm pretty sure, is the serial killer from this season's episode 18, Omnivore. At the end of that episode they set it up so that everyone would think that he would come after Morgan, but at the end of this episode when the shooter says that Hotchner should have made the deal, it has to be that serial killer.
I just hope they don't kill him off of the show!!!

Oh thanks GabbieLea22!
I could remember something vaguely about a deal, but I couldn't remember which episode or what was going on. That totally refreshed my memory about it. You're right it does seem that way. However, I thought they caught the omnivore. I thought he was the only survivor of his attacks. Or is that some other episode that I'm thinking of?

The shit-head who shot Hotch was Foyett from episode 18-Omnivore... I really hate him right now... He went after Hotch because Hotch didn't make the deal "If you stop hunting me I'll stop hunting them." Yes I have watched it too much... The show was quiet good... scary but good... The ending was the one bit I will never forget.But I have news. I'm not sure if it is true but there's an AWESOME rumour that it has been confirmed ALL of the original cast from Season 4 will be returning for the duration of Season 5. I'm not sure if it's true but I would like to believe it is :).So there's a little bit of releif for you until September!

It's not relief. Rumors do not bring relief. But thanks for the info. It's always nice to get to things like that.
