Criminal Minds may not have too many episodes left for season 14, but there’s certainly enough time still to dive into some big stories. Ultimately, that’s what this article is all about — speculating about what should happen for many of our favorites!

Before we dive too much deeper, rest assured that there are no actual spoilers ahead. This is just a good at some of what could be coming for a few of our favorite characters.
Spencer Reid – We’re starting with Reid largely because he’s the one who hasn’t been around! Rest assured that Matthew Gray Gubler will be back, though, and our hope is that he will get one or two personal stories before the end to make up for his absence.
Emily Prentiss – Is Mendoza meant to be the one for her — or at least the one for her at the moment? We’ve seen some of this relationship over the past couple of Emily spotlights, but it feels like we’re due at least one more before the finale wraps.
David Rossi – Let’s stick around the subject of Rossi relationships for a moment. Doesn’t it feel like we should get a wedding in the finale between him and Krystall? What better way to wrap up this season than seeing these two tie the knot while David also takes on a new UnSub?
JJ – We’ve already seen a case that was super-personal because of her past, so let’s mix things up here and give her a case that is super-important to her present. Maybe she finds herself in a situation where her job or a longtime friend is threatened. What does she do?
Matt Simmons – We’ve explored some of his family history on Beyond Borders, so why not do that again? We’d also love to see Daniel Henney have an opportunity to speak a little bit of Korean on the flagship show.
Luke Alvez – Are the events of “Luke” really in the rear-view mirror with him? We wonder this question mostly because “name” episodes of Criminal Minds are the ones that really tend to have a significant long-term impact.
Tara Lewis – We’d like to see her more consistently at the forefront of taking down UnSubs. Despite this being a great character, it did feel like Dr. Lewis faded into the background in season 14 more than we would’ve liked.
Penelope Garcia – Given how long she’s been a part of the series, we really do think that Garcia’s love-life deserves more of a spotlight. We know that there are only six episodes left, but what better time than the present to give that a spotlight?
