Criminal Minds Preview Teases Michelle Trachtenberg And A Stalker

Criminal Minds has always given audiences small windows into the FBI agent team’s personal lives. In Season 8, we’ve gotten to spend a lot more time with Dr. Reid and his new love interest, who is dealing with a bit of personal disaster with an ex-lover. After meeting Reid’s love interest, briefly, just before the winter holiday, Criminal Minds has a special episode planned that will bring the season-long plotline to a head.

Reid has been trying to keep his love life as well as his lover’s stalker under control for weeks now, but the team has had suspicions about what is going on. In the episode, Reid seems to have let his FBI partners in on his troubles, and the team seems to be investigating keenly, although Reid himself might actually have to be taken out of the equation.

As the clip also notes, the episode will mark Michelle Trachtenberg’s guest appearance on CBS’ hit series. There’s more on that, here, although you may not want to click if you want next week’s episode to be more or a surprise. The episode of Criminal Minds is called “Zugzwang” and is set to air on CBS on January 16, which also marks the show’s return to the air following winter break.

CBS Criminal Minds airs on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET.

Amazing Race & Top Chef superfan with a pinch of Disney fairy dust thrown in. If you’ve created a rom-com I’ve probably watched it.
