Bookend Quotes[]

  • Jennifer Jareau: Jean Racine said, "A tragedy need not have blood and death. It's enough that it all be filled with that majestic sadness that is the pleasure of tragedy."


  • This is AJ Cook's last appearance as JJ as a series regular until her return in the season seven premiere; returning as a profiler and not as a media liaison. She makes a special guest star appearance in "Lauren" and the season finale.
  • The song playing at the end as JJ walks into the elevator is sung by Ray LaMontagne which just so happens to be the same last name as JJ’s husband Will
