The Criminal Minds Season 7 finale is set to feature Battlestar Galactica’s Tricia Helfer as a very bad girl. Unfortunately, it’s not the good type of bad girl that most men love to chase around. Instead, Helfer will be playing the big villain during this season’s two-hour finale, airing May 16th. If you’re like me, when you hear a show is getting an extended finale, you just know it’s going to be one of the best episodes that show will ever do.
According to TVLine, who spoke with Helfer on the red carpet of the 26th annual Genesis Awards, the finale will feature an attack on a federal bank. To add a little tension to what is already a fairly intense situation, one of the BAU members will be a part of what turns into a hostage situation. I wish I could say which of our lovely cast members will find themselves held captive, but it would appear that knowledge is not for the public just yet. I cannot even say for sure Helfer’s character will be present at the bank for the robbery. She could be operating away from the action, pulling the strings.
The finale will also somehow find the time to feature a wedding and will set up Paget Brewster’s exit from the show, meaning we will have to say goodbye to Prentiss for the second time. I just hope they don’t try and fake her death again. Once was enough.
