Here’s another collection of videos, questions, photos, tweets, and news articles for Criminal Minds, NCIS, and NCIS: Los Angeles. (Spoilers after the jump!)
Check out these photos, featuring shots of Kirsten Vangsness (Penelope Garcia), Shemar Moore (Derek Morgan), AJ Cook (JJ Jareau), and Executive Producer Erica Messer:
Here’s a question from MegaBuzz:
Any Criminal Minds scoop? — Kyle
ADAM: Episode 9 will be a Rossi-centric episode about race relations in the South that will shed light on his early years. And the picture that the episode paints of Rossi isn’t necessarily a flattering one. “You will learn things about him that you never knew and you will question him,” executive producer Erica Messer tells us. “Like, ‘Did he do that? Was he using it as an interrogation technique? Could the Rossi we know and love have done something not OK?'” Hmm, could this have been what drove him to join the Marines?
You can take a look behind the scenes of episode 9.09 here, and check out this Vine clip:

Michael Weatherly (Tony DiNozzo), Mark Harmon (Leroy Jethro Gibbs) and Executive Producer Gary Glasberg spoke to TV Guide about next week’s episode, “Once a Crook”, which features flashbacks to Tony’s past as a street cop in Baltimore. Here’s an excerpt:
TV Guide Magazine: Fans are never more excited than when they hear NCIS is doing a flashback. Will this episode provide psychological insight into Tony?
Weatherly: For me, the most interesting part of this episode was how I didn’t realize until we were shooting the flashback scenes that Tony used to be quite earnest, focused and almost without any defense mechanisms. I’m like, “Oh, this is before. He was a movie buff, but it hadn’t become [a major] part of his personality yet.”
Harmon and Weatherly are on the cover of the October 21–November 3 issue of TV Guide—click the thumbnail below to see the larger version of the cover:

Here are two question from EW.com:
Any plans for Abby to get a new love interest or for her to have a large storyline this season on NCIS? — Laura
“I’m certainly open to it,” says exec producer Gary Glasberg. “I can’t say that we’ve been talking about it right now, but I’m not going to say no. Pauley Perrette is fantastic and can handle anything that’s thrown at her and if the time is right and the opportunity is right and the character is right then we’ll consider it, sure!”
Can you give me any scoop on Palmer’s baby adoption on NCIS? He seemed to be having a hard time in the last episode. Is it going to fall apart? — Gracie
That’s an arc that will continue to play out throughout the season, says Glasberg. “We’ll step away from it from time to time and it’ll resurface, but people should be prepared for a bit of an emotional roller coaster when it comes to that,” he says.
Finally, here’s a tweet from director Dennis Smith, referring to Emily Wickersham’s new character:
OK, first day shooting #NCIS with new character "Ellie Bishop". I really like this young lady. Going to have some fun! She got game.

The show celebrated 100 episodes this week, and the cast tweeted live during “Reznikov, N”. Here are some photos and Instagram videos from Twitter, including a few from the set of The Talk—click the thumbnails to visit the originals:
As CSI Files previously reported, most of the cast visited The Talk on Tuesday to promote the 100th episode, and you can watch the episode on CBS.com here (interview starts at 13:10)—or find several clips below:

We won’t be referencing the fact that Dani is pregnant on the show at all. And through the magic of television and with great editing and acting and great story lines, the audience won’t even know she’s pregnant.
The cast spoke to E! Online, and they revealed that at least one character may die by the end of season 5. “This season you’re going to see a lot of shockers,” LL Cool J (Sam Hanna) revealed. “We’re going to throw curveballs at people and they definitely aren’t going to see them coming.”
LL Cool J told Zap2It that he didn’t anticipate NCIS: LA’s success from day one:
To say that I knew all along [it would be a hit] would be an absolute lie. I had no idea this show was going to be as successful as it is, and I’m just hopeful that people continue to embrace it, watch it and enjoy it. And hopefully, those people who haven’t watched yet will decide to give us a shot and get into it as well.
Here’s a fan question from TV Line:
Question: Got any scoop on NCIS: LA Deeks/Kensi? —Katie
Ausiello: It’s time for another round of “Is This Just a Coincidence or Am I Onto Something?” Earlier this week, NCIS: LA EP Shane Brennan told Matt Mitovich that “there’s quite a shocking moment in Episode 10 that throws everything awry, and then for the next eight or so episodes Kensi and Deeks’ relationship is in some serious trouble.” Curiously, it’s also around Episode 10 that the show is introducing a new (possibly recurring) ”physically capable” American female agent, and two Middle Eastern male agents. Now, I ask you: Is this just a coincidence or am I onto something? (Mitovich votes for the latter, theorizing that Kensi will take a very dangerous off-grid assignment in the Middle East that sets up Daniela Ruah’s forthcoming maternity leave.)
Here’s another question about Kensi and Marty Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen), from MegaBuzz:
Got any more news about Kensi and Deeks’ relationship on NCIS: Los Angeles? — Brittney
ADAM: Executive producer Shane Brennan says he plans to stretch that story out for most of the season, noting that the couple will talk around their feelings rather than dealing with them, which could lead to trouble. “It comes to a head, and it has some pretty devastating consequences,” Brennan teases. “There’s a revelation … about Kensi that is quite shocking.” But before you ask, it has nothing to do with Daniela Ruah’s real-life pregnancy. “I will put to rest any suggestion that Kensi is carrying Deeks’ baby,” Brennan says.
Brennan spoke to TV Fanatic again, and you can read the full interview here. Here’s an excerpt about Kensi and Deeks:
By the 9th or 10th episode, it has some fairly dramatic consequences. And, then we put them both in a situation through the next 8 or so episodes. They are struggling with what happened in the 10th episode and then in the 18th episode there’s this pretty powerful and surprising revelation that changes the course of their relationship in a very, very big way. And, it has nothing to do with Dani [Ruah] being pregnant by the way.
Guest star Matthew Godbey (Dan Evans) did an interview with NCISLA Magazine.
