“Criminal Minds” will soon air its landmark 250th episode. The series has an exciting episode filmed for its fans to celebrate this important milestone. In season 11, episode 17 (which is the show’s 250th episode), “Criminal Minds” will air a two-part story revolving around an unsub called Sandman, TVLine reports.
According to episode 17’s synopsis on SpoilerTV, the Sandman abducts children in Wichita. When the children’s parents are asleep, the Sandman kidnaps kids by sprinkling sand on their eyes. The episode, aptly titled “The Sandman,” is directed by series star Joe Mantegna (who plays David Rossi).
Moreover, “Criminal Minds” showrunner Erica Messer revealed to TVLine that episode 250 will end on a crucial cliffhanger. Directed by Dr. Spencer Reid’s portrayer Matthew Gray Gubler, episode 251 will be brutal and amazing, according to Messer. It is titled “A Beautiful Disaster.”
Gubler and Mantegna have previously directed several episodes of “Criminal Minds.” In fact, in season 10, Gubler directed a famous episode called “Mr. Scratch” that proved to be one of the most interesting and horrifying episodes of the CBS series’ tenth season.
Meanwhile, this week’s episode of the crime series will see the return of FBI Agent Natalie Colfax (guest-star Marisol Nichols). According to the episode’s synopsis on CBS, the BAU will travel to Los Angeles in order to catch a killer that is being invited into victims’ homes.
A close look at the promo of episode 15 titled “A Badge And A Gun” reveals that the unsub is invited in victims’ home because he flashes an FBI badge.
