If fans were wondering what kind of forshadowing would be in store for BAU Unit Chief Aaron Hotchner, they were disappointed.
ET Online shares the season 12 premier picked up right where it left off for viewers, and without any hint at Thomas Gibson's character having any kind of trauma in store.
Gibson's character did spend the final scenes of the premier welcoming Adam Rodriguez’s FBI Fugitive Task Force Agent Luke Alvez to the team to fill the empty spot left by Shemar Moore.
The sneak peek for next Wednesday's show, which is Gibson's final, didn't drop any clues as to whether he was to be written out of or killed off of the show.
"I feel like it took years to make a good reputation and a minute to damage it," Gibson said.
