Criminal Minds Episode 200 Photos: Prentiss 'Drops Everything' to Join the Search for JJ
When the State Department stonewalls the BAU, Hotch calls for reinforcements — in the form of former colleague Emily Prentiss. Upon hearing of the JJ crisis, Brewster says, “She drops everything, gets on the Interpol jet and boom — she goes to Virginia to help solve the problem.”
The clock is ticking, as the man who is tasked with torturing information out of JJ famously operates on a fixed schedule, and usually with great (read: grisly) success. “The race is on, to try to get to her before they break [her],” says Brewster.
Brewster says she was “thrilled that I got to do so much — and the reason for it is because Prentiss has information on JJ that no one else knew…. We find out that when JJ was flying Prentiss to Paris [in the Season 6 episode ‘Lauren’], JJ was in fact undercover, working a mission the team doesn't know about.”
Uh-oh, which familiar face is catching a ride in the ambulance…?
As previously reported, Episode 200 will answer several burning questions (including one you never thought to ask) about JJ’s time away from the BAU. “We find out why sweet little press liaison JJ became a much tougher, ass-kicking profiler,” Brewster affirms. “There's something that happened in the past [to make her that way].”
