In the course of the prolonged (however not devastating) wait between Felony Minds’ CBS finish and its streaming debut on Paramount+, many viewers have been beneath the impression that Kirsten Vangsness’ tech whiz Garcia and Adam Rodriguez’s Alvez can be spending a few of that point collectively between the sheets. However Evolution in a short time snuffed out these sultry theories by revealing they’d stored issues extra pleasant than flirty after a single date. And it then upped that ante by pairing Garcia up with Ryan-James Hatanaka’s Tyler Inexperienced, her vengeful, Sicarius-duping informant. And it feels like her morally doubtful scenario will get even stickier when Season 2 arrives. (Or Season 17, relying on the way you’re counting issues.)
Showrunner Erica Messer has confirmed that followers shall be seeing extra from Tyler when Felony Minds: Evolution returns. And whereas a few of it could must do with Zach Gilford’s serial killer ringleader (and probably the entire “Gold Star” thriller), it’ll additionally contain Garcia’s romantic pursuits. Right here’s how the crime drama’s large boss put it to TV Insider:
Not solely was there a spark between the 2, however Garcia completely gave Tyler the most effective intercourse of his life, and almost put him in a catatonic state after doing so. However as Messer hinted at, Felony Minds characters past JJ (and Rossi, every now and then) aren’t all the time so nicely geared up to stability romantic relationships and instincts with job duties and stressed-out mindsets. After all, that’s basically why work flings, as regretful as these is perhaps, are so commonplace. (Even in actual life, as evidenced by sure former GMA3 anchors.) Aisha Tyler’s Lewis is aware of all about how up and down these will be.
However guess what? Those that have been hoping for Alvez and Garcia to stay it out are in luck. Or, on the very least, they’ll be capable to clutch onto these hopes for a bit longer, as Erica Messer mentioned the artistic crew shall be tangling Kirsten Vangsness & Co. up a bit inside a love triangle. In her phrases:
This sounds about as removed from a sleazy sex-fueled triangle because it will get, with Garcia pondering a worthwhile future with somebody like Tyler, all whereas Alvez is all smiles sitting within the dugout. I do love that Garcia is within the driver’s seat of her personal romances, although, versus the opposite manner round. In that sense, I’m unsure who I’d reasonably see her with in the long term. Wouldn’t wish to mess up the dynamic with Alvez by taking issues too far too rapidly, however his chemistry with Garcia is clearly extra constructed up than what she’s obtained with Tyler.
I suppose ultimately, crucial factor is for her up to now somebody that presently has zero ties to any unidentified serial killers. Additionally, zero ties to any incarcerated serial killers whose circumstances are nonetheless actively affecting a number of BAU brokers. It’s not that limiting a specification, I’d suppose.
Whereas we’re as regards to love triangles, with AJ Prepare dinner’s JJ and Josh Stewart’s Will being introduced up already as nicely, followers with Paramount+ subscriptions are little question hoping for Matthew Grey Gubler to return to the franchise as Reid. Which might nearly positively contain some form of romantic foibles, even when JJ and Will’s relationship appears as robust as ever. He even obtained shot! Within the vest, however nonetheless.
To that finish, Erica Messer did say the present will embrace any availability that Josh Stewart can present, given his busy profession. So what would occur if he couldn’t return and Gubler might? Hmmm? It doesn’t matter, as a result of that is about Garcia’s happiness, dammit.
Ought to Kirsten Vangsness’ Garcia hold getting sizzling and heavy with Tyler Inexperienced, or does Alvez deserve one other shot? Somebody mod a combating sport with these two going through one another, and let me know who wins.
