Tonight on Criminal Minds: Are Those Wedding Bells We Hear?

criminal mindsThere is a theme of marriage and family on tonight’s Criminal Minds in both a professional and personal capacity. We also have a big spoiler relating to the season finale and the fate of Emily Prentiss (Paget Brewster) as we unfortunately know that she will be leaving the BAU team at the end of this year.

The team heads to Seattle tonight to investigate the murders of married couples, who all happen to be foster parents to young children. Teri Polo (Meet the Parents) is playing Maggie Hallman; a former teacher who has both maternal and murderous instincts and it is clear that she is targeting these couples because of the children involved. The promo below shows that it is the children that are what is important to this woman as she says “You’re so lucky. A child’s the greatest gift of love anyone can ask for.” J.J. (A.J. Cook) also comments that “Her maternal desire is causing her to unravel” and it would seem that this woman is desperate for a baby no matter what she has to do to get one.

On a personal level tonight Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) fears that Kevin (Nicholas Brendon) is going to propose very soon. The last episode that featured Kevin had the pair falling out and making up, with an added misunderstanding between Garcia and Morgan (Shemar Moore) thrown in for good measure. If Kevin does propose, will Garcia say yes?

Warning spoilers for the season finale. Executive producer Erica Messer spoke to TV Guide about the two-hour season 7 finale that gives a hint as to what Garcia’s answer could be, as there will be a wedding. The wedding is going to be between one of the team and their long term love interest and will either be Garcia and Kevin, or J.J. and Will (Josh Stewart).

This wedding will also be the venue for the departure of Paget Brewster and they have made the decision to not kill off Prentiss, so Brewster can return in the future. Messer said that “We wanted to balance out the darkness of the two hours and the bittersweetness of Paget leaving with the flip side of a really good thing” and that they wanted to “end a season on a happy note instead of blowing something up.” Is this how you want to see Brewster leave the show? Are you looking forward to a happier ending this season? End of spoilers.

Watch a promo for tonight’s episode of Criminal Minds “I Love You, Tommy Brown” below.
