'Criminal Minds' Season 14: Rossi's Ex-Wife Returns – PopCulture.com

Criminal Minds will be bringing back a familiar face after its milestone 300th episode.

The series will celebrate the big episode for its season 14 premiere with some memorable guests stars of their own. But the following episode will see the return of David Rossi’s (Joe Mantegna) ex-wife Krystall (Gail O’ Grady), who was first introduced in a season 13 episode of the CBS drama.

According to the episode synopsis for “Starter Home,” set to air Wednesday, Oct. 10, “when the mummified remains of numerous victims are found in the walls of an elderly couple’s remote South Carolina home, Rossi, J.J. and Simmons are dispatched to track down a trail of clues that date back over 20 years.” The hunt becomes urgent after BAU learns the killer has a specific ritual of when to strike, and like clockwork another person goes missing. Also, Rossi reconnects with his ex-wife, Krystall.

When viewers first met Krystall Richards, the reunion had quite a bit of drama for the leader of the Behavioral Analysis Unit. Krystall was revealed to be Rossi’s third ex-wife, a blackjack dealer from Las Vegas.

The two married in a drive-thru wedding chapel and their marriage was quickly annulled after the pair got sober. She then moved to Los Angeles, married someone else and was in town for her daughter’s wedding.

During their gracious encounter, Kystall asks Rossi to be her plus one for her daughter’s wedding, as she has always been impressed by the fact her mother was once “married for 36 hours.”

Later on in the sweet reunion Rossi notices that Krystall’s daughter Portia’s husband to-be has some misogynistic tendencies, and after doing some digging with the help of Penelope Garcia (Kirsteen Vangsness), they discover the man has an ulterior motive for the marriage.

Despite the sad turn of events, which ended with Portia’s wedding being called off upon the realization her beau was a con artist looking for money, the episode ended on a rather sweet note, when Krystall showed up at Rossi’s house and the two listened to music and played cards.

Though no details were given as to what will prompt Krystall to come back to town, we wouldn’t necessarily be upset if it was to woo Rossi back into the dating scene.

Before we get to that, the BAU will have to deal with the big season finale cliffhanger, which found Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) having to decide between helping a dangerous cult free their leader from jail, or let Penelope die.

Watch it all unfold when Criminal Minds returns for its 14th season Wednesday, Oct. 4 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.

Scoop: Coming Up on a New Episode of CRIMINAL MINDS on CBS - Wednesday, October 10, 2018

“Starter Home” – When the mummified remains of numerous victims are found in the walls of an elderly couple’s remote South Carolina home, Rossi, J.J. and Simmons are dispatched to track down a trail of clues that date back over 20 years. THE HUNT becomes urgent after BAU learns the killer has a specific ritual of when to strike, and like clockwork another person goes missing.

Other members include Special Agent Emily Prentiss, the daughter of high-powered diplomats who returns to the team after being the head profiler at Interpol; Special Agent Dr. Spencer Reid, a classically misunderstood genius whose social IQ is as low as his intellectual IQ is high; Jennifer “J.J.” Jareau, the team’s former unit liaison turned profiler, who juggles motherhood and marriage with the same skill as she solves cases; Penelope Garcia, the team’s indispensable computer wizard who helps research the cases with her unique charm; Dr. Tara Lewis, a forensic psychologist whose expertise is studying and interviewing serial killers after they’ve been captured to determine if they are able to stand trial; Luke Alvez, a former Army ranger and excellent tracker recruited to the BAU from the FBI’s Fugitive Task Force; and Special Agent Simmons who joins his colleagues in the BAU after consulting them when he was a member of the International Response Team.

Is Criminal Minds Season 13 Coming To Netflix? – Otakukart

Criminal Minds aired its 13th season through September 2017 to April 2018. It was another terrific season, and the fans are waiting for the new season to hit Netflix. It was speculated that the show would come to Netflix in June like every year. However, the show wasn’t released in June. So, now the fans questioning when will the show come out on Netflix. It looks like that the show won’t be released even in September.

It is not listed in the Netflix’s new releases for the month. The wait continues for the 13th season. The show has already been renewed for a 14th season and the 14th season will come out in September; this was confirmed by Harry Bring, and it is actually strange as the fans will have to wait for the 13th season to come on Netflix while the 14th season starts airing later this month on CBS.

Criminal Minds Season 13 Netflix

Harry Bring revealed the news in a tweet, which read — “Criminal Minds S14 premiere date confirmed. Wednesday, September 26, 2018. 10 pm CBS.”

There is a possibility that both the seasons might come out together on Netflix. It may seem unlikely but, there is a chance.

Erica Messer had her say on the current situation and the finale of the 13th season. She said, “They feel like two incredibly important pieces to our team, who won’t be available if they’re held captive. They won’t be available to help us solve the case, which is crazy. The challenges we’re coming up with now are, ‘Gosh, if we have two of our MVPs sitting on the sidelines here, what can we do? What clues do they possibly leave behind for us to help find where they’re being held or how we help to solve this case without them?’ It’s one of the first times, I think, we’ve ever been without, truly, truly without the help of both of them.”

If you’re interested in the cast of the 14th season, then I’ll just add it in this post:

Matthew Gray Gubler as Dr. Spencer Reid
Kirsten Vangsness as Penelope Garcia
A.J. Cook as Jennifer Jareau
Thomas Gibson as Aaron Hotchner
Joe Mantegna as David Rossi
Aisha Tyler as Dr. Tara Lewis
Daniel Henney as Matt Simmons
Paget Brewster as Emily Prentiss
Adam Rodriguez as Luke Alvez

'Criminal Minds' Premiere: Luke Perry Returns — Plus, a Sneak Peek at the 300th Episode (PHOTOS) – TVInsider

Criminal Minds premiered way back in 2005 and it’s now about to celebrate its 300th episode.

To help commemorate the milestone, executive producer Erica Messer teased that fans will be seeing a few familiar faces in the episode — including Beverly Hills, 90210 alum and current Riverdale star Luke Perry.

“A lot of exploration of the history of the show in the 300th episode, right from jump,” she tells Entertainment Weekly. “Even when we would normally be doing a ‘previously on Criminal Minds, we give a little history lesson of the current team on the show.”

Perry is back as cult leader Benjamin Cyrus, who first appeared in the Season 4 episode “Minimal Loss.” However, in that episode, the character died… which begs the question, how will be return? We assume in a flashback scene.

Messer said the reason to bring back so many major players is a way of “acknowledging the talent and history of those people.”

We left off in the Season 13 finale with the lives of Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) and Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) in jeopardy. The rest of the BSU team must race against the clock to try and save them from another murderous cult leader Benjamin Merva (Michael Hogan).

'Criminal Minds' Debuts First Season 14 Footage in Dramatic Teaser (Exclusive) – Entertainment Tonight

Criminal Minds is about to make history.

ET exclusively debuts the first footage from the upcoming 14th season, which will open with the show’s milestone 300th episode and pick up moments after the dramatic season 13 cliffhanger that left Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) and Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) in huge trouble. 

“We’re so excited to announce that season 14 will kick off with our historical 300th episode! It’s an action-packed hour of our team in never-before-seen jeopardy,” executive producer and showrunner Erica Messer tells ET. “This episode is a love letter to our fans as a way of saying thank you for being with us all these years and here’s to many more.”

In the new 30-second teaser, which you can watch above, the rest of the BAU scramble to save their friends and some members of the team — most notably J.J. (A.J. Cook) — have a harder time than the others.

“We stand beside one another through good, through bad… because we’re family,” Rossi (Joe Mantegna) says, while Garcia — held hostage by a mass murderer — desperately questions, “What do they want?!” 

If the promo is any indication, it’s looking bad for Reid and Garcia.

Following the heart-stopping season 13 cliffhanger in April, Messer spoke with ET about what viewers can expect when the show returns this fall, hinting that all the core characters will be major players for the 300th hour. 

“There are many different ways to go, but, obviously, we want our wonderful heroes to be in the 300th episode,” Messer said at the time. “It would probably be a matter of our team trying to solve one of the biggest cases they’ve ever seen without two of the most important players on their team.”

Criminal Minds premieres Wednesday, Oct. 3 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

'Criminal Minds' Season 14 Spoilers: How Will the Events of Episode 300 Affect Garcia? – Newsweek

There isn’t a time jump when Criminal Minds Season 14 begins, which is good news after that finale cliffhanger. What happens next, now that a serial killer cult has two members of the team, is going to affect Garcia beyond the premiere, TVLine said Wednesday.

The CBS procedural drama is celebrating its 300th episode with its season premiere, which begins immediately following the finale. The Season 9 finale showed the serial killer cult the team had been investigating get the upper hand. Special Agent Mary Meadows (Karen David) kidnapped Technical Analyst Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) and threatened to have her men kill her if Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) didn’t free her leader, The Messiah Benjamin David Merva, (Michael Hogan) from FBI custody.

“You see the team racing to figure out what has happened, and piece together where Reid and Garcia are,” showrunner Erica Messer told the publication. The premiere’s official synopsis reveals the team “finds surprising clues in their own history to solve why the two heroes have been targeted by a mass murderer.”

The events from the premiere will affect Garcia for multiple episodes. “What she does in order to survive, we’ve never truly played before,” the showrunner teased to TVLine. Garcia spends most of her time back in the office, behind her computers. She rarely travels with the team or goes out into the field.

She’s right in the middle of the action in the premiere, as seen in the trailer ET posted Tuesday. “I will die before I help you,” she tells someone, possibly Meadows or Merva. It does look like they may want her to do something on a computer—which could explain why they took her, other than threatening her life to get Reid to cooperate.

J.J. (A.J. Cook) appears to find Special Agent Owen Quinn (James Urbaniak) bleeding in the garage. Though the team had wondered if he was part of the cult, he was only a victim and Meadows shot him before taking Garcia hostage.

Looking beyond the resolution of the cliffhanger, Criminal Minds Season 14 is going to explore “one of our heroes in their home life in some way” in the eight episodes that follow the premiere, Messer told TVLine. Fans will understand the “lone wolf” quality of Alvez (Adam Rodriguez) after one of those episodes, she said.

One episode will follow a case in real time, with an UnSub (Unknown Subject) whose weapon of choice is a machete, the publication revealed. He strikes every 27 minutes.

It won’t all be gruesome cases. There could be a wedding this season, even possibly in Rossi’s (Joe Mantegna) backyard again. J.J. and Will (Josh Stewart) got married there in Season 7. Rossi reconnected with his third wife, Krystall Richards (Gail O’Grady) in Season 13, and she’s sticking around. “You know I’m a sucker for my backyard weddings,” Messer reminded TVLine.

Criminal Minds Season 14 premieres Wednesday, October 3 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.

Criminal Minds Has Big Plans For Its 300th Episode – Cinema Blend

9 hours ago

Criminal Minds closed its thirteenth season with a cliffhanger that left two characters’ fates in question. The episode ended with Reid and Garcia held at gunpoint by members of a serial killer cult. As if that wasn’t bad enough for fans dying to know what would happen next, the show hadn’t even been renewed just yet. Well, Criminal Minds did finally score a renewal order, and fans could look forward to a Season 14 premiere that also happened to be the series’ 300th episode. The show has big things planned for the 300-episode milestone, as showrunner Erica Messer recently revealed.

According to showrunner Erica Messer, the 300th episode kicks off with the team other than Reid and Garcia trying to determine what happened to the duo and what happened with VICAP Agent Meadows, who seemed like an ally for much of the Season 13 finale. The crisis will reach a climax, as to be expected, but the impact won’t end when the final credits roll. Garcia in particular will be affected by what happens in the 300th episode. As if she didn’t have enough of an emotional ride in Season 13! In her chat with TVLine, Messer revealed that “what she does to survive” is something they “never truly played before.”

Garcia has spent far less time in the line of fire than most of the BAU, so perhaps what she does to survive will take her to some heretofore unexplored violent places. Could Garcia need to cross personal lines to escape? She’ll undoubtedly want to help Reid and assist the BAU in catching the bad guys as well. No wonder she’ll deal with the effects of what she goes through in episodes beyond the 300th in Season 14, which may get more episodes than we expected.

Maybe Shemar Moore could drop by as Derek Morgan one more time to give her some support and perhaps a shoulder to cry on. Fans undoubtedly wouldn’t mind seeing Moore back with the BAU, even if only briefly. He wouldn’t even need to switch networks to drop by Criminal Minds from his own show. Who do I have to talk to for SEAL Team to lend Moore for an episode of Criminal Minds?

The 300th episode — appropriately titled “300” — will see the rest of the team following clues in their own history to figure out why Reid and Garcia were targeted by Benjamin Merva and his cult. The BAU only has a certain amount of time to find and save them, as a “Believers” prophecy is set to be fulfilled. While we probably don’t have to worry than Criminal Minds is going to kill any major characters off, all signs point toward an intense 300th episode that could be rewarding to longtime fans.

You can see for yourself when the 300th episode of Criminal Minds airs Wednesday, October 3 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS following the Season 2 premiere of SEAL Team. For more important fall TV dates, be sure to take a look at our 2018 fall premiere schedule.
