A.J. Cook and Paget Brewster were fired after the fifth season. According to Brewster, CBS did this to save money. Brewster was suddenly brought back for the sixth season but her character was written out towards the end of the season. Cook was replaced with Rachel Nichols. Brewster was rehired for the seventh season as she still had a season left on her contract. Cook signed a new contract to return and Nichols was fired. Brewster left after the seventh season because she did not like how CBS treated her.

Goofs
The black SUVs used by the team frequently have US Government "G" plates. However, the plates are usually incorrect for the type of vehicle they are on. Plates with prefixes of G12 and G14 have been seen. G12 is a compact sedan and G14 indicates a large sedan, and would be incorrect for use on an SUV. The correct plate prefixes would either be G41 for a 2 wheel drive or G61 for a 4 wheel drive 1/2 ton vehicle.

While the show has used different model GulfStreams,they always have the same interior. There have been minor changes in the interior over the seasons. The size of the cabin shown is most likely the G450 or G550 which have similar interiors. A G100 or G200 is a much smaller cabin, narrower and not as much headroom when walking in aisle.

Q
Do serial killers in prison really have groupies as is depicted in the show?
A
Yes, hybristophilia is the term for sexual attraction to someone who has committed an outrage and many notorious incarcerated criminals have devoted fans and even romantic admirers. Mass murderer Ted Bundy was especially notorious for being popular with attractive young women which were exactly the kind of victim he preyed upon prior to his imprisonment. Racist cult leader, Charles Manson, who orchastrated the murders of seven people and whom now serves life sentence in federal prison, is due to be married in late 2014.
Q
What happened to Elle Greenaway (Lola Glaudini)?
A
Elle shot and killed a serial rapist in cold blood after she panicked on the job and allowed the unsub to go free. While there were no witnesses and it was deemed a 'clean' shoot (self-defense), she intentionally skipped an ordered psych evaluation and then quit the job. However, she told Hotch it was not an admission of guilt. Actor's reason for leaving: Lola decided to spend more time with her family and filming locations were inconvenient for her.
