Watch Clips From Tonight’s ‘CM:BB’, Plus ‘Criminal Minds’ Info


Criminal Minds and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders have new episodes on the schedule tonight. You can find CM: BB sneak peeks below, along with interviews, tweets and photos!

Criminal Minds will air “A Beautiful Disaster” at 9:00pm ET/PT, but there are no sneak peeks available. Here’s the episode preview:

Series star Kirsten Vangsness (Penelope Garcia) co-wrote “A Beautiful Disaster” with Executive Producer Erica Messer, which marks their second time working together to pen an episode of “Criminal Minds”. They previously co-wrote season ten’s “Nelson’s Sparrow”. Vangsness spoke to TV Line about tonight’s episode, which was directed by her co-star Matthew Gray Gubler (Dr Spencer Reid). Here’s an excerpt:

TVLINE | How long ago did you learn that you’d be picking up this Derek/Savannah cliffhanger?

I knew that I had in my contract that I could co-write an episode this season. Erica was like, “You can do the second [episode], or you could do 18 with me, which is going to be a big one.” Last year I did the one where we cleared up the mystery of [Gideon’s old case], and those are fun for me because I love going into the backstory. I’m not a big fan at all of dead people and violence, which is hilarious, but we managed to limit the casualties considerably.

TVLINE | And yet that’s Mr. Gubler’s forte as a director, the really unsettling, disturbing imagery. Did this episode not quite lend itself to that?

Yes, he is, and no, it’s definitely got the Gubler spin on it. It’s definitely got it with our bad guy, played by Lance Henriksen (Millennium), whom I love him so much. We knew we wanted him and he was so great. Then Matthew was like, “What about glaucoma?” All of us were like, “Sorry, what?” He said, “I want to get a contact for his eye so he looks really extra creepy.” It is low on gore, heavy on creep.

Here’s an interview with Vangsness from Hollywood Today Live, including a few comments about tonight’s episode:

Vangsness also spoke to KCAL 9, and here’s the interview:

Parade spoke to Vangsness as well, including this quote:

One of the funnest things of writing this episode is that when something happens to someone on the team, everybody’s thrown. So everybody’s adrenaline is going, and everybody’s not in their regular calm, expanded, creative mind to be able to solve problems. Everybody’s little demons come out because everybody’s scared. That makes for really good drama because people make mistakes, and people say things that they shouldn’t.
