Contains spoilers for 'Criminal Minds' Season 15
Come the series finale of 'Criminal Minds', there's a possibility that JJ and Prentiss may actually bid goodbye to their beloved jobs. There have been signs all along that this was inevitable, and this week's episode proves it.
Emily rekindles her faltering flame with Andrew and even joins the two for dinner after the BAU had to take a trip to Denver to catch a violent killer who was decapitating his victims. For someone who called her cat Sergio as the perfect man, it's a big step for Prentiss to be meeting Andrew's kid. We know she's been missing him ever since he moved there to be with his daughter, so now with the two of them getting along so well, what is stopping Prentiss from not moving in with him?
It's quite similar to JJ's arc as well, but with her, it could be the fact that she's constantly in danger and her family needs her to stay alive. The synopsis for the next episode' Family Tree' suggests that the two agents come face-to-face with important decisions about their future. We know JJ was almost killed by Everett Lynch's daughter earlier this season so it would make sense for her to want to back out after all these years.
It could also go completely the other way, at least for Prentiss. She could end up choosing her work with the BAU over Andrew, breaking his heart and her own. The show has just three episodes left and they have a lot of loose ends to tie up.
It will be interesting to see how Lynch is incorporated into all this and how his return plays a part in the closure we get.
Episode 8 of 'Criminal Minds' airs on Wednesday, Feb. 12 (10-11 pm, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
