I can't disagree with your reasoning, except to disagree with you and the other person who said that Gideon could/should come back for a couple of episodes. Mandy Patinken quit the show because violence on TV upsets him...which begs the question of why in the world did he take the role in the first place. Anyway, I just seriously doubt that he will ever agree to come back for even a few episodes. I'd love to be proven wrong on that one, though...

There was much rejoicing!

Bringing back JJ - win. epic win. No explanation needed for why she needs to come back!

Bringing back Prentiss - mostly win: they really need to figure out how to do this without just reversing what they did to get her out. Suddenly killing off her arch-nemesis, telling everyone she is fine, then tossing her back into the team would be more problem than help. They need to seriously consider what would happen in reality. It would have to be something like one of them goes overseas to help another country with a serial killer and randomly see her.

Bringing back Elle - fail. This wouldn't make sense as she's been gone for years, and she had become a very loose cannon. It would be difficult to effectively bring her back.

Bringing back Gideon - once or twice would be cool, full time would be a fail. Gideon just couldn't handle the psychological effects of the work any longer. As someone said, having him come back to give Reid advice would be cool, but it would have to be kind of in passing, outside of the office, outside of the job, and not last more than 2-3 episodes at most. Maybe Reid calls Gideon (Reid is the only one Gideon explained his leaving to, right?) for advice and they meet somewhere. Anymore would drag out and be contradictory to the growth of Reid's character, I think. He needs advice outside of the team, but I think he's outgrown the use of Gideon as the protective grandfather (I mean that in action, not age difference) always taking care of his feelings.

Getting rid of Strauss - either/or. I think she's pushed her power a little too far so replacing her with someone else could be helpful. (If anyone watches NCIS, someone like Director Vance who trusts the team while still finding ways to enforce the most important rules and respect.) Yet, showing a woman with such power in the FBI is a good idea for society. She just needs to show a little more of her feminine sensibility.

Getting rid of Seaver (wanna-be JJ) - a little more good than bad. I'm getting a little more used to the idea of bringing a hand-picked, brand new, not-quite-agent to the team to train her in the field. It gives the writers a chance to explain the theory behind profiling to the audience without having to make the characters talk to a random who is questioning their abilities. At the same time, it is so incredibly unrealistic. She's lacking so many of the emotional abilities of the other characters - being able to shut it off at certain times then having it overtake them at others, but making the times when it is one or the other be predictable to the character. Actress or script - I don't know but it's not working.

Sorry this is so long, but those are my thoughts. Anyone agree or disagree with my reasons?

I think we've all had a boss like that, which is probably the reason why everyone wants her to go. emoticon

I don't think its possible to like Strauss, but that's the point. I think a lot of us can identify with a boss who is so obsessed with the "rules" that she fails to see the big picture.

I guess not too many of us were Elle fans, LOL!

Wow, thanks for the info Kerri about the possibility of J. J. coming back to the show, that would be awesome. I don't really care for the new agent, I can't even remember her name.
I would also like to see Prentiss return, but, I wish her the best of luck with the comedy.

But, hey what is up with Strauss? Why does she always on Hotch's case? I think if the show wants to cut someone she should go.

I think Mandy could definitely do a guest appearance that would be wonderful, maybe he could help Reid with his headaches?
When I started reading your post my first thought was not Elle, I laughed when I got to the part where you said it.

I know that Mandy Patinkin is never going to come back, but I sure would like to see all of the people who've left the show over the last few years come back. No, let's ammend that. I'm living just fine without Elle, but I'd really love to see J.J. and Prentiss back on the team.

There was much rejoicing!

I saw a picture that the CM facebook posted and jumped but didn't want to totally get my hopes up until I actually saw her back for several episodes. Apparently they realized they need her for the fans to be happy.

Reminds me of my favorite tv show, Supernatural - the writers and executive producers are always watching the fansites and wikis to see what people like and don't like, then change the show accordingly. They've screwed up plenty of times but turned it around pretty quick when they realized the fans were ticked. When a show has a cult following they've gotta play to the fans they have. I just wish more shows (like CM) did this instead of waiting for how long for everyone's frustration to really build.

It would/will be interesting to see how she does in a comedic role...but I still hope that she ends up back on CM.

They offered Paget/Prentiss her full job back but she wanted to use her option to film a comedy pilot. She was cast in the lead but from what I understand if the pilot isn't picked up as a show she comes back to CM.

I agree. I probably will stop hating whatshername once I have JJ back! I guess CBS or the powers that be didn't realize how much AJ was loved.

Now all CM needs is Prentiss back and the family will be whole again. The new girl can even stay if the family all comes back and I won't mind.

I hope so too. I detest this new girl, I guess because I see her as JJ's replacement.

I hope it's true, too. She was one of the best of the bunch they dropped.
