When will we see Blake and Reid lecture in her linguistic classes on Criminal Minds?

Not for a while. Jeanne Tripplehorn says she hasn’t shot any classroom scenes as of Episode 7, but you can look for Blake and Reid to get closer. (No, not like that!) “It’s a great friendship they have because they’re both brainiacs and you’ll see they have secrets between each other,” she says. “These are just things between them that the rest of the group probably isn’t aware of and it’s really sweet.” Hmm, could it be that Reid is confiding in her about his new galpal?
