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

Criminal Minds

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.

"Anytime there's a very close coworker environment, as we have here, it's hard," Messer tells TVGuide.com. "There's just a natural hesitation to accept, but in that friendly way. She certainly doesn't have an ulterior motive or anything."

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

What can you tease about the two-hour episode of Private Practice? —Jessica
NATALIE:
As you might expect on an episode about Amelia's intervention, her brother Derek Shepherd will make an appearance! It won't mean things go smoothly though, as Amelia will turn the tables on her friends by exploiting their faults — Addison's inability to have a child, Pete's recent heart attack — causing two of the bunch to have very Izzie-like reactions.

I'd love some good Castle scoop. — Mike

Sounds like Castle and Beckett are going to be working closely with... read more
