After a little adjustment period I got used to Alex Blake. I now really like her character and enjoy the interactions between her and the team. I also appreciate the fact that she’s an experienced profiler. But I still keep expecting to see Prentiss. It will take a while to get used to her not being on the show
The crazy part is while I miss seeing Paget on Criminal Minds, I dont miss seeing Prentiss this season. I know that sounds weird but Alex fills the space as an experienced profiler so wonderfully that I’m not yearning for Emily every week. Also, I think the writers did a wonderful job of wrapping up Prentiss’ storyline so well I dont feel like there is something hanging and we need to have her there again to fix it. Season 8 started a whole new story.
