“Criminal Minds” Season 12 will miss the presence of Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore) who left the show to focus more on his family. However, Dr. Reid Spencer (Matthew Gray Gubler) is now finding it difficult to carry on without him. Morgan and Spencer have worked together for a long time and it is not easy for anyone to forget your teammate so easily.
It was not an easy decision for Morgan to leave the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU). He decided to leave the team after having a terrible experience with a deadly kidnapper, reports The Christian Times. The incident affected him so much that he decided to leave BAU. However, his colleague and teammate, Reid is now finding it difficult to carry on work without him.
Will Reid Accept Rodriguez?
“Criminal Minds” Season 12 will have a new entrant, Adam Rodriguez. He will replace Morgan. But will Reid accept him? It might not be easier for the BAU leader to accept Rodriguez so easily, especially now that he has come in place of Morgan. There is a possibility that Reid may reject him altogether initially.
According to Erica Messer, the upcoming season will tap this angle of Morgan’s absence and its effect on Reid. Also the showrunner stated that it would be interesting to watch how Reid adjusts to the working of Adam Rodriguez in the team. It is an indication that the character of Rodriguez will have to take extra efforts to dispel Reid’s hostility.
And it is not only Reid, but the whole team is also under pressure after Morgan’s exit since he was one of the best. Moreover, after working for a long time, the team has become like a close-knit family. So, the “Criminal Minds” Season 12 will focus primarily on how the team, and especially Reid adjusts to Rodriguez.
According to actor Thomas Gibson, the chief Aaron of BAU, the fans and viewers rave about the series because it has compelling stories, reports Master Herald. So new and interesting stories will also be a part of “Criminal Minds” Season 12 that premieres on Wednesday, Sept. 28, at 8 p.m. on CBS.
