Thanks EW.com for sharing this bunch of infos about Dr. Reid's upcoming love angle in Criminal Minds season 8! On their brief chat with showrunner/EP Erica Messer, the fandom of Reid may now have a clue on what to expect from Reid's mystery woman. The report tells us that episodes 10 and 12 -- the latter will feature Trachtenberg -- will both inform viewers about this woman's identity and a bit of a sneak peek into her unique relationship with Reid.
Meanwhile, check out the statement from Exec. Producer Erica Messer below --
“Episodes 10 and 12 are the really big ones for [audiences] to see this character who we all know and love actually feel emotion for another person in a way that is not typical of him. I think what we’ve all promised you guys is that it’s not going to be a typical love story or anything we’ve seen on this show. And I think Matthew would argue that you haven’t seen a story like this at all.
In both episodes, the show will follow up in the information audiences learned in episode 4 — that the mysterious character is “running from someone and something." And naturally, her journey collides with the team.”
