Criminal Minds Burning Question: How Will Prentiss Return?

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!

Reid: There's an old Buddhist saying that, when you meet your soulmate, remember that the act to bring you together was 500 years in the making. So always appreciate and be kind to each other.
Lewis: That's lovely.
Reid: There's a corollary for friends. When you meet a true friend, you will be bound together though space and time for 500 years.
