After shoring up the details of his plan to deliver Gaalan (Timothy V. Murphy) and a bunch of the Irish Kings' assault weapons to D.A.

Paget Brewster, Criminal Minds
Paget Brewster is already bracing for the fan reaction.
"There's a nice little moment between Prentiss and Hotch in the episode," she tells TVGuide.com of Criminal Minds' 150th installment airing Wednesday.

The opener picked up three months after the finale at a Senate hearing, where the BAU was grilled about its rogue operation pursuing Prentiss' IRA nemesis Ian Doyle (Timothy V. Murphy). After Doyle's son, Declan (Conrad Bluth), was kidnapped — but not by Doyle — Prentiss (Brewster) came out of hiding to help the team, which now finds JJ (Cook) as a profiler, solve the case.
"Gang's all here!" Cook tweeted after Brewster's ...
Thomas Gibson can only think of one way to sum up Season 6 of Criminal Minds.
"The sh-- hit the fan basically. And you can quote me on that!" he tells TVGuide.com. "But the great thing is now we feel more reenergized than ever. There's a whole fresh energy on set and we're all really excited for this year."

And why not? After drawing fans' ire for dumping A.J. Cook and Paget Brewster last year — in addition to hiring Rachel Nichols — CBS rehired the two actresses in the spring and dropped Nichols, bringing the BAU's core seven back together. "As we should be," according to Gibson.

Matthew Gray Gubler
Matthew Gray Gubler is usually known as "Gube," but he had a different nickname while directing this week's Criminal Minds.
"Someone started calling me Michael Bay Gubler because there's so much action in this one," he tells TVGuide.com "I know so little about action films that it's kind of funny."

Indeed, the actor and NYU film grad specializes in the creepy and quirky — just check out his artwork — so quirky that his crash course in action films included The Fantastic Mr. Fox.
