8 Spoilers for Criminal Minds Season 8: A Season-Long Unsub, Alex's Past, a Prentiss Return?

Criminal Minds executive producer Erica Messer wants to assure you that Jeanne Tripplehorn's Alex Blake will not stir up trouble in the BAU.

Criminal Minds scoop: Reid is getting a girlfriend!

Tripplehorn will make her debut on the Season 8 premiere, filling the void left by Paget Brewster's Emily Prentiss, who exited in the season finale. And though Messer previously described Alex as a "threat" to the team, she clarifies that it's merely a case of a newbie joining a tightknit group.

What else can we expect from Alex? Get the scoop on her and more below.
