I know I just posted that some people dont even want to talk about the finale but this just came to me and I wanted to write it down to see if it made sense…..
Joe Mantegna let it be known there would be some foreshadowing in the episodes before the finale as to who would die/leave in the finale. You know what I just thought about? Alex. Here she is after 10 years getting the opportunity to be a married couple with her husband whom she loves very much but she gives that up for the BAU. Why? This is her moment and her husband will always be there. Also, Reid with his little speech about always having work but not always having love. What if Alex could’ve saved her own life by just leaving the BAU and heading to Harvard with James? Just a thought.
