JJ is coming back to Criminal Minds, but not as a regular character. She will return for Emily Prentiss’ (Paget Brewster) final episode later this spring. The storyline for Emily’s departure is already being set up with this mysterious character that showed up in the last episode regarding another person who has escaped prison and is a clear threat to Emily. I know that is extremely vague but that is all the information that is available right now. I’m sure we will get more on this even as early as this week’s episode.
The fact that JJ is returning makes me think that this could be a death for Emily instead of a departure similar to JJ’s. I don’t like that. Well I don’t like that these women were cut from the cast to begin with but there is nothing that can be done about it now. I guess we have to wait and see where this is all going but it is happening this spring.
Are you excited JJ is back even if it is only for one episode? I’ll take one episode with JJ vs. no episode with her.
