Love is in the air at the BAU! But for who?

Former Dirty Sexy Money star Bellamy Young will guest in an upcoming episode of Criminal Minds as Beth, a museum curator who meets Hotch (Thomas Gibson) in the park while he’s training for triathalon.

The episode also guest stars Charles S. Dutton, playing a boxing trainer at a Philadelphia gym.

Before the start of the season, showrunner Erica Messer teased a new romance for one of the agents, but declined to give details. She had also hinted, however, that she wanted this season to see a new beginning for Hotch, whose ex-wife was killed a few season ago. “Hotch … has been going through the motions of raising a child as a single working parent and mourning the loss of a great love,” she told EW after the premiere. “And even though he and Haley were divorced, she was his first love, his only life and all that. We’d really like him to smile again and let go of that. It’s going to be new and exciting for all of us and the audience.”

Young, who stars in the upcoming Shonda Rhimes-produced Scandal, has also appeared on Scrubs and CSI: Miami.

    • Raven


    • Cheery

      • sanrac

        this thread made me LOL <3<3<3

  • Jackie

    I’m happy to see Hotch get a love interest. Thomas Gibson has such a lovely smile, and we don’t get to see it nearly enough!

  • CMFan

    Good for Hotch and glad to see it is not someone on the team.

    I also have enjoyed seeing a less serious Hotch at times this season.

    • Lorie

      Same here.

    • JR

      Amen to this! I completely agree.

    • Isabel


    • Misty

      Agreed !

  • D


    • Raven

      RIGHT?! And lets face it….she’s not pretty enough for him!!!!

  • Birdie

    I’d rather it be Prentiss he gets involved with.

    • Alicia

      ITA, and Erica Messer doesn’t know what she’s talking about; she proved that when she pushed through Paget and AJ’s termination.
      There is no appreciable audience “excitement” over this; people will either be indifferent, casually interested or ROYALLY PISSED.
      Hotch + Prentiss belong together!

      • FTreddy

        I think it’s GREAT!!!!!! Can’t wait to see it :)))

  • LDSK

    I like this idea (as long as they keep it in the background and it doesn’t take over the show.) Hotch deserves to finally have some happiness in his life. Oh, and HORRAY that they are bringing in someone from outside the group!!!

    • Cheery

      You know what happens to love interests who aren’t Prentiss? They get paralyzed and bleed out in SUV explosions or shot by serial killers, just sayin’…

  • Jax

    What?!? Criminal Minds scoop on EW? I’m shocked!

    • Moore

      Seriously! It’s about time they payed attention to this show considering how many fans it has.

  • April

    Aww, she looks adorable. She and Thomas Gibson will look great together. Go Hotch!

  • Raven

    C’mon!!! She’s not even pretty enough for him!!!!

    • David

      Are you kidding me?! She’s very attractive!

  • AnnaMaire

    It’s about time. Glad the love interest is a newcomer and not Prentis. If the relaitonship goes south, it keeps the team intact. Good call IMHO.

  • Misty

    I don’t mind the news, (Hotch getting together with “Beth”). It’s not that I wanted to see Hotch getting a love interest, but anything that is NOT Hotch/Prentiss is very welcomed.

    • Sara

      ^ This.

    • QWERTY

      Sounds like you’re bitter no one cares about your ship. Let me guess, Morgan and Prentiss?

      • Misty

        Absolutely not, I don’t ship Prentiss with anyone. I’m just glad that Hotch/Prentiss won’t be happening, that’s it.

      • FTreddy

        QWERTY you’re the one that sounds bitter

  • Michael

    Oh thank God their not pulling a Tiva

  • sofia

    She played my least favorite character on Dirty, Sexy, Money, and I was thrilled when “she” died, I hated her on CSI Miami. I hope she is not in that many episodes, that they don’t get seriously involved, not only because I want Hotch with Prentiss but because I don’t like this actress, I don’t like her face.

    • Michael

      So does that mean I can hate you because you rape the English language

  • Fido

    Hopfully the ptb will do something different with her hair, cos when she was in Dirty Sexy Money she had an identical hairstyle to her onscreen husband and I found that distractingly creepy.

  • Aqua

    I’m not much for romance on the show, but Hotch does deserve some love. Just not with her…
