Morales will replace Jayne Atkinson, who played Strauss and was killed in the season 8 finale. The Examiner reported that Matt has close ties with JJ [A.J. Cook]. The website guessed that "it goes back to her days with the Department of Defense."

But for the first two episodes, we will see Aaron Hotchner [Thomas Gibson] holding down the fort, acting as section chief.

What else can we expect in season 9? How about Hotch's emotionally state of mind after his wife's [played by Meredith Monroe] death.

"In our 100th episode five years ago, Hotchner's wife, Haley, was murdered by Foyet [aka the Reaper] and then Hotchner beat Foyet to death," said executive producer Erica Messer. "So we're going to honor the longtime fans by clueing the audience in to where Hotchner has been emotionally these past five years."

Both Monroe and C. Thomas Howell [Foyet] are invited back to shoot new scenes.

What about Leon Vance [Rocky Carroll] after the death of his murdered spouse Jackie? Fans will sadly watch him spend Thanksgiving along, the first holidey season without Jackie.

"We'll be casting the father of Vance's wife," said executive producer Gary Glasberg. "We think it will really have some resonance."
