Criminal Minds Burning Question: How Will Prentiss Return?

by at . Comments

Paget Brewster's return to Criminal Minds has been confirmed.

How her character reemerges and how her fellow BAU members react remain unclear ... and complicated. Considering how she left, it will be tough to explain.

Much of the team does not handle finding out that Prentiss is still alive and well, according to TV Line's Michael Ausiello, "especially Dr. Reid, who feels betrayed."

Prentiss in Danger

With Brewster's contract status up in the air, her departure from the procedural in the March 16 episode titled "Hanley Waters" was left open-ended for a reason.

Learning that she faked her own death won't be easy to swallow for Reid, though, and it should be interesting to watch their relationship unfold in the fall.

As for A.J. Cook's J.J., not only is she back in DC, but she's getting a promotion!

Season Seven of Criminal Minds begins September 21. Sound off on it here!

Criminal Minds Quotes

There are times when the mind is dealt such a blow that it hides itself in insanity. There are times when reality is nothing but pain, and to escape that pain the mind must leave reality behind. - Patrick Rothfuss

Morgan

Hotch: A sniper can wait up to 72 hours without sleeping.
Mays: Seriously?
Rossi: That's part of their training. They can stay awake for 72 hours and remain completely focused on their target.
Mays: How?
Hotch: By using a mental exercise called "fantasy integration". A sniper creates a scenarios involving a target that keeps that person at the forefront of their mind.
Morgan: Often they'll imagine a place where they're with the target, doing something together that takes time. For example, building a car.
JJ: For some, the fantasy begins the minute they're assigned a target. Then nothing will distract them.
