Be Happy, Feel Beautiful
Since 2005, Criminal Minds has pleased the hearts and minds of viewers all around the globe with its intense episodes of crime drama and action involving a team of profilers who are part of the Behavioral Analysis Unit of the FBI. But the Season 7 Premiere episode had everyone on the edge of their seats. The main reason was the return of Agent Jennifer Jareau, played by actress A.J. Cook, and Agent Emily Prentiss, played by actress Paget Brewster. Both actresses had left the show in Season 6 due to budget cuts and viewers were devastated.
Although the vibes varied from beginning to end, overall the episode had different levels of intensity. When Agent Morgan (Shemar Moore) catches Ian Doyle (Timothy V. Murphy), it keeps your heart racing, as does having Dr. Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) and Agent Rossi (Joe Mantegna) searching the house for any dead bodies. When the team discovers that Agent Prentiss faked her death, there is a vibe of shock to tears from technical analyst Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) and the others. Then there is sorrow when Ian Doyle’s son, Declan (Conrad Bluth), watches his father bleed out to death. The episode closes up with a happy ending when suspense in every agent of the team is lifted, bringing them back together, just like old times.
During the season premiere, A.J. Cook was answering questions on her personal Twitter account. I asked her a couple of questions and got an answer to both of them!
BB: What were your thoughts/feelings about Season 7’s Premiere episode of Criminal Minds?
A.J. Cook: It was emotional. Happy emotional.
BB: What can we (viewers/fans) expect for future episodes of Season 7 of Criminal Minds?
A.J. Cook: We’re going to see more on everyone’s personal life.
Some other answers she tweeted were:
“I work with some amazing people every day. That’s why I came back.”
“This episode holds a special place in my heart for obvious reasons.”
Keep on the lookout for new episodes and a different level of intensity in the episodes of Criminal Minds Season 7!
