When Criminal Minds executive producer Erica Messer asked Paget Brewster to return for the show's 200th episode, there was only one option for the actress.

"I said yes right away — no question," Brewster tells TVGuide.com. "Erica called me directly before talking to any agent or executive or anything. She just called me up and said, 'Hey, we want to have people come back for the 200th.' I said, 'Absolutely. Whatever you want. I'm game. I'd love to.' I was really flattered that they asked me. There was nothing to think about."
