I think my main reaction to "Pleasure Is My Business" is this: Hotch is hot.

Seriously. Hotch is hot. Especially when he's doing any of the following: Watching video of his son, rejecting political BS, calmly reasoning with sociopaths and manipulating their delusions, and holding a serial killer's hand while she dies.

Other shallow aspects: Reid's vest/shirt combos weren't as hot this episode as last episode, but I like the jacket/vest combination. Also, Prentiss and Morgan both look ridiculously hot in bulletproof vests.

I absolutely love how screwed up Megan was. "That's what they told me you liked" when her father hit her? Goddamn.

I kind of want to do a series of fics about the unsubs, but since I already have too many unfinished Criminal Minds fics, I'll just put that thought aside until I finish my Gideon/Reid casefic and my attempt at Gideon/Hotch/Reid. And maybe a Criminal Minds/Watchmen crossover.

What? I like the image of the BAU profiling costumed vigilantes. And the image of Reid growing up with Ozymandias action figures.

I rolled my eyes when she asked how Hotch's wife could ever leave him. Oh, I don't know, maybe it had something to do with the fact that, thanks to his job, he was never around when they had a baby to take care of, and then when he had the opportunity to switch to a job that would let him spend time with his wife and help her take care of their son, and she told him that's what she needed him to do, he refused?

I love Hotch and I know Haley had her flaws, but she had good reasons to be unhappy with that marriage.

Also, Haley bashers do not need any encouragement.

(This rant is brought to you by far too many slashfics that demonize ex-wives. I'm looking at you too, due South fandom.)

I'm still not really sure how I feel about this episode, but...

Here from the Inbox, wanted to talk about Haley. I know a lot of people really dislike her, and the thing is, I understand the dislike, because...we love Hotch, and she chose a really terrible way to leave. But I feel so sorry for her, because I think she married a man she thought she understood but really didn't. She needed him to leave his job; he needed to keep his job. There was only one solution, and it was heartbreaking all around.

(For what it's worth, I don't think that Megan's words were meant by the writer to be a demonization of Haley; I think they were an indication of the level of trust she was giving to Hotch.)

I thought the whole point of the "why would Hayley leave you?" comment was as an ironic statement that all marriages have problems and she doesn't know that he wasn't as perfect as she saw him. Maybe I am giving them too much credit.

I'm pretty much a big fan of all bulletproof vests *_*

I usually hit the back button as soon as I notice this kind of thing going on. Unfortunately in this fandom, that doesn't leave a person with a whole lotta fic.

Thank you for saying that. Haley left because she finally got tired of coming in second to the BAU. Yes, the job is important but so is family. The marriage broke up because the two people involved needed different things out of it...

And while it as not be said, I don't think that Haley is the reason that Hotch doesn't see Jack as much as he would like. That is the "fault" of the BAU.
