Cheers to Criminal Minds for thinking outside the proverbial box.
Paget Brewster and Shemar Moore
After an ominous month-long arc, Paget Brewster left Criminal Minds, as Prentiss finally confronted IRA nemesis Ian Doyle in an episode filled with suspense, emotion, torture and twists. And it also answered the question everyone had on their mind: Will Prentiss die?
Matthew Gray Gubler
Matthew Gray Gubler is usually known as "Gube," but he had a different nickname while directing this week's Criminal Minds.
"Someone started calling me Michael Bay Gubler because there's so much action in this one," he tells TVGuide.com "I know so little about action films that it's kind of funny."

What's going to happen to Prentiss on Criminal Minds? Please tell me she doesn't die. — Janelle

Rachel Nichols knows she's in kind of a tough spot.
