In this week’s exclusive clip, Barnes reveals that she’s not going after the entire BAU — just Prentiss (Paget Brewster). She’s using Reid’s (Matthew Gray Gubler) arrest in Mexico last year as a catalyst into how the BAU has performed under Prentiss and our fair leader’s job may be at risk.
According to Barnes, “mistakes have been made” since Prentiss has expanded the team and now her performance as BAU leader is going to be evaluated. She claims that the team is guilty of putting loyalty above FBI process, which isn’t going to fly with Barnes who has ambitions of making director.
Is Prentiss going to be able to survive this witch hunt or will the BAU be looking at getting another leader this season?
