Brewster’s character, Trish, possesses upper class sophistication and book smarts. (Cue the fireworks with Javier’s ex, Gloria in 3, 2, 1…)

This is Brewster’s second major TV stint since wrapping her six-year Criminal Minds run last year; in September, she guest-starred on Law & Order: Svu as the head of the District Attorney’s Office’s Public Integrity Unit. »
