The fall TV season is back in full swing. After a strange 2020 year, this one is already aiming to be one of the best for the return of our favorite shows. For example, CBS’s FBI: Most Wanted, heading into it’s third season, is introducing some new characters.
Yes, we have to say “goodbye” to some favorite characters, but Kristin Gaines (Alexa Davalos) is already gearing up to be a fan favorite. But where have we seen her before?
‘FBI: Most Wanted’ welcomes new character Kristin Gaines.
Fans are thrilled the new season is back on the air, and they were ready to welcome the high-intensity thriller back to their weekly schedule. However, while some are upset to see favorite characters leaving, there are some changes they’re excited about too.
And one of those exciting changes is the addition of Alexa Davalos, who is playing Kristin Gaines. Kristin is a new agent joining team Jess LaCroix (Julian McMahon), who is the leader of the Fugitive Task Force.
While it’s not clear yet what Kristin’s official title is in the squad, there’s a high chance she’s joining the team to replace Clinton Skye (Nathaniel Arcand) or Kenny Crosby (Kellan Lutz). And the new cast member is gearing up to be a quick favorite with fans taking to social media to share their excitement.
Kristin officially makes her debut on the team in the Sept. 28, 2021, episode titled “Patriots.” The official episode synopsis reads, “New Fugitive Task Force member Kristin Gaines joins Jess and the team; they head to D.C. to find a dangerous fugitive from the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.”
And fans are already thrilled. “One episode in, and I already love Alexa Davalos' Kristin Gaines,” one fan wrote on Twitter. “Welcome to the FTF, Agent Gaines!” another tweeted. “Loving her already, Gaines doesn’t mess around!” added someone else. “Kristin Gaines is awesome,” added another fan of the show.
As the season progresses and fans get to know Agent Gaines more, we’re convinced she’s just going to be even more popular. For some fans, the fact that actor Alexa Davalos is joining the cast is enough for them to tune in.
“Adore Alexa Davalos,” someone else tweeted. “So happy that she’s part of the #FBIFam now."
“I really like Gaines. Alexa Davalos is a great addition to the cast,” shared another.
With so many fans loving her already, where have we seen Alexa Davalos before?
Alexa isn’t new to acting and in her previous roles, she’s gained a fanbase who will follow her in any role she lands — including FBI: Most Wanted.
Before joining the FBI cast, Alexa starred in Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle as Juliana Crain. She is also well-known for playing Kyra in the 2004 film The Chronicles of Riddick, but she was also in drama mystery TV show Reunion from 2005-2006 and had a small role in Undeclared, a Judd Apatow production.
FBI: Most Wanted airs on CBS Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST.
