'Criminal Minds' Season 15 Episode 4: Penelope is the target once again and fans can't keep calm
Penelope has already been stalked and shot once. We almost lost her, but she survived. Not again, plead fans
Kirsten Vangsness' Penelope Garcia is probably the most loved character in the 'Criminal Minds' fandom — and the next episode looks like it will put her in danger again and fans are just not having it. Penelope has already been stalked and shot once. We almost lost her, but she survived.
The teaser for Episode 4 'Saturday' shows a frantic Penelope telling the BAU how a guy on the web has been threatening her with details about how he would murder her.
Penelope, the tech whiz, without whom the BAU wouldn't be as amazing as it is, isn't usually the type to get scared easily. However, the teaser shows her looking seriously worried. It can be speculated that during her off day, she participated in a hacking competition and things went south quickly.
"I will be done if you hurt Penelope, we gonna have an issue," wrote a fan after the teaser came out. Another echoed similar emotions of concern saying, "I'm ready to fight anyone that tries to hurt Penelope." Another said, " Penelope Garcia is a human rainbow, don't touch her"
It is unlikely that Penelope may die this season, but with this show making twists and turns that we just can't see, it wouldn't be very far fetched.
As for the rest of the dream team, the synopsis hints that it will be a relaxing day. Rossi and Prentiss help Simmons assemble a new crib, now with the fifth baby on the way while Reid strikes up a conversation with a woman named Maxine (Rachel Leigh Cook).
Now, rumor has it that Maxine will be Reid's love interest this season, although there's no saying how long it will last. Is JJ and Reid the endgame for that love subplot? Too soon to tell.
Criminal Minds Season 15 Episode 4 airs on January 22 on the CBS Television Network.
