With the very upsetting 100th episode finally done, is it time to get Prentiss (Paget Brewster) a boyfriend? TV Guide reports that the demand for a Hotch-Prentiss hookup had been astounding, but Criminal Minds executive producer Ed Bernero doesn't seem to be too keen on the idea. And his reason? It just might be more shocking than the 100th episode.
"We don't even know if Prentiss is straight," he teases.
But didn't Prentiss get pregnant and an abortion at 15? The Criminal Minds bigwig is mum on whether or not some girl-to-girl action is in the offing on CBS show. And he wants fans to consider one thing before they jump on the Hotch-Prentiss bandwagon, if ever there is one to begin with.
"I think what's more important to us is their friendship. It's too important to mess up with them sleeping together," he says.
On the next episode of Criminal Minds after a week's break, Agent Hotchner (Thomas Gibson) takes a leave of absence from the BAU, and the team must regroup to solve a home invasion case.
