Criminal Minds will air a new episode tonight at 9:00pm ET/PT, and you can find a sneak peek, a behind-the-scenes video, quotes and tweets after the jump!
Next, check out this behind-the-scenes look at the table read for the episode. (It’s also available on CBS.com.)
TV Guide posted an article last month called “7 Teases for Criminal Minds Season 10″. Here’s one of them, which relates to tonight’s episode:
2. Kate’s secret
Like the introduction of Blake ([Jeanne] Tripplehorn), Kate has a mysterious backstory that viewers will get a peek at when we follow her home at the end of the season premiere. But unlike Blake, hers won’t be tied to an unsub or even keep you guessing that long. Hotch and Rossi (Joe Mantegna) already know her secret, which involves a plane crash, and she will tell Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) in the third episode. “Something pretty tragic happened in her life, but she wasn’t a victim necessarily,” Messer says. “Her secret is not like Blake’s at all. She’s been dealt a hand that most people aren’t dealt. There’s no secret in that, but she also doesn’t want it to be what defines her, certainly to the rest of the team.” The event is also partially what spurred Kate on to become an FBI agent. “She was on her way there with her psychology degree, but this happened at a very important time in her life,” Messer says. “It was her trigger, so to speak, and it informs why she’s as strong as she is. She’s very tough, smart and fearless.”
Also check out this interview with Executive Producer Erica Messer, which TV Fanatic posted two weeks ago. Here’s a quote about tonight’s episode:
…the third episode is a little bit of a departure because we’re doing a massive plane wreck and it turns out it’s not terrorism the way you would anticipate it…visually it feels like a feature and we really went big and we usually don’t go that big that early in the season for a number of reasons but CBS was very much behind it so we went for it.
Finally, check out a few tweets and photos, including a link to promotional images from the episode:
