Ok, so after reading some spoilers (I just can’t help myself!) and then the announcement, that all main cast members have signed new contracts (that’s how I understood it) I fear - as some of you do as well - that it’s possibly Strauss who will bites the dust.
And sorry (not), but I don’t want her to die. She fast became my favorite “to-hate-character”, I don’t wanna miss her on the show, she stirs things up and this is always fun to watch.
My guessing is that perhaps Blake gets kidnapped and Strauss sacrifices herself when the situation escalates (it’s Criminal Minds, it WILL escalate), and with her final words she asks Blake to forgive her for the mistake she made years ago. And poor Rossi is left behind heartbroken (again). oO
Perhaps? It might be, right? I need a real life, way too much invested in TV shows :p (just kidding, ha, bring it on!)
I just really dont feel comfortable with the idea of Erin “sacrificing” herself for Alex. Not enough has been told about this relationship and the incident for me to buy that. I’m sure Erin hurt more people she loved with her drinking than some woman she might have screwed over once, even if it was for promotion and blah blah blah. I still dont even like the fact that she wants to make amends to her since the point of that step is to attempt to make right things made wrong by drinking. Yes, I guess its possible Erin could’ve been drinking on the job but it seems ridiculous that she’s been a functioning (or non-functioning) alcoholic for over 10 years. Possible but a little ridiculous. This storyline has been fleshed out in no way, shape, or form for me to not lose my mind with anger if it comes to that. If they kill off Erin, what’s done is already done. But if that’s the reason I will not be happy. And even if we find out everything that happened between the two women in tonight’s episode, its just not enough….they could’ve told us everything 15 episodes ago. /rant
Sorry but I feel so strongly about this. I didnt mean to get so invested either but Erin is one of my favorite characters. Alex is as well, even though I’ve been against the antagonistic the writers decided to give them from the start.
