    So a decent premiere. Nothing truly earthshattering - although interesting to see an unsub who was truly made into what he was. Jeanne was okay. A little stiff maybe but I expect she'll settle into the role. She seems a bit like a female Reid. And that's okay. I like the linguistics angle - that's something new for this show. Interesting that they gave her a backstory with Erin too.

    At the end, it looks like someone is targeting the whole team! And I can't get over improved looking Garcia has become over the last few seasons. She went from frumpy to attractive.

    I agree about JT being a little stiff. I also found her character a little standoffish, but I'm hoping that dissipates as the episodes progress. Her introduction was definitely smoother than Rachel Nichols.

    I think Jeanne's stiffness is perhaps meant to be a sign of her similarity to Reid? With whom she's clearly bonded, but we barely saw him tonight.

    Penelope...holy smokes!!! Did she lose about 40 lbs. over the summer? You can't call her svelte yet, but she's clearly a lot thinner than she was. Except in her British dress it wasn't so obvious in her figure, but her face is tons thinner. And in that dress...wow.

    Enjoyed the season opener, if only because of the banter between Derek and Penelope. Never get tired of that.

    I'm gonna say this now, knowing that I could be proven totally wrong later, but here goes: There is definitely something between the new girl (Alex) and the Director. The tension had the makings of a Mother-Daughter fight!

    It sounded like a case that Alex boggled and Erin threw her under the bus. This happened years ago and Alex is just now getting back into good standing with the bureau.

    I was getting a different vibe from Erin and Alex. At first I thought they were past lovers.

    I loved that they went on vacation together. Those two can make a bland episode so much better.

    Poor Reid indeed. Just when he was finally going to get some love. I thought that Diane had shot just herself, I didn't think about how the bullet would go through to Maeve.
