Tricia Helfer to Guest Star on Criminal Minds Season Finale

by at . Comments

The season finale of Criminal Minds just got a whole lot prettier. And a whole lot bad ass-ier.

According to TV Line, who spoke to Tricia Helfer on the red carpet of Saturday night's Genesis Awards, the former Battlestar Galactica star will appear on the season 7 finale of Criminal Minds as a "bad character."

That's all we know at the moment, although CBS released a spoiler-filled press release last week that teased the Criminal Minds season finale and revealed it will center on a member of the team being taken hostage inside a bank.

This May 16 installment will also mark the final one for Paget Brewster as Emily Prentiss.

    When did haley cheat on hotch? And does that give hotch the right to kill her? 100 was stupid and the whole story line was flawed from start to finish it was written for people with an iq of 1 that the writers could not even bother to make the story flow so the events were plausible and now haley was cheating on hotch. What did jack do to hotch that he killed his mom and left him to become a latch door kid

    Love reading your reviews for Criminal Minds. My all time favorite TV series. Watch reruns whenever they are on. SKH, I don't mind repeating some storylines as long as the characters are interesting. I will miss El and do wish her the best of luck. Let's not bring Beth back for Hotch..... is the actress who replaced JJ available. I'm all for her and Hotch to connect.Hey Jess you are kinda hard on Hotch in ep. 100. It is a good example of ."No man can serve two masters" Hotch picked the wrong one. But I still love him.

    Well Jess do you think she kinda of had it coming I mean she did cheat on Hotch and walk out on him for her own selfish needs

    If anyone a terrible negotiator it’s Hotch, look at the 100 episode. Rather than lie to the Reaper to protect Haley and just agree to stop chasing him, he just tells Jack to give his mom a big hug and say bye bye. Nice work in getting your ex killed.

    I don't see a review for "Foundation" but I thought it was an excellent episode and Morgan and JJ gave incredible performances. Prentiss was great also. Looking forward to the show's two hour finale. I am loving Morgan and JJ as a new team thogh. I'm assuming this new bond between them is in anticipation of Paget's Prentiss character leaving the show.

    Agree about the repetition, lets just hope the writers don't choose JJ as the negotiator again like they did in season 6 when the prince of darkness was dragging that cops daughter around. That was so bad and her speech on the radio was cringe factor with all that nonsense about mums. The prince of darkness wasn't there best storyline and dragged out for two hours.

    I'm a big fan of Criminal Minds. It's one show I'm careful not to miss each week. I hope it will be around for another season. I will miss Emily, tho, and wish her all the best.

    This show PR are doing a useless job of trying to make criminal minds finally interesting. How boring is this article, and who cares which team member is held hostage, been there seen it. Reid been held hostage, Prentiss and reid were held captive in the cult house and Ella was attacked in her home. Get a original idea, its getting boring with the same stories being constantly repeated. Making the unsub female is not making the cliffhanger any more interesting. It doesn't matter what the unsub gender is, if you are going to keep repeating storylines, the outcome still the same, viewers have already seen the story.

    I just love Criminal Minds. I fell in love with it the day I saw the first episode. I have been watching the reruns and older versions now and I can't wait every week for Weds.night. I hope that this is is just a vacation until next fall because I will be very upset if they cancel it. I will try to contact the studio to make sure that they come back.
