The Always Villainous Tricia Helfer to Close Out ‘Criminal Minds’

Tricia Helfer Battlestar Galactica

Oh, Tricia Helfer.  It doesn’t matter what role she takes, be they world-ending cyborgs, or the partner of a canine detective (yeah, seriously, that’s happening), networks know we’d watch her in anything because, well, look at her.  Thus, for the first time in any of our lives, we might need to start watching ‘Criminal Minds.’

TVLine reports that former ‘Battlestar Galactica‘ and upcoming ‘Scent of the Missing’ star Tricia Helfer will make a guest turn in the two-hour May 16 season finale of ‘Criminal Minds.’  Details are light on the role itself, but Helfer made the claim at the 26th Annual Genesis Awards that her role is “definitely a bad character.”  Shock of the century.

The two-hour May 16 finale is said to involve an attack on a federal bank and a resulting hostage situation in which of the BAU members is taken prisoner. Additionally, series boss Erica Messer told TV Guide Magazine that the finale features a wedding which will “pave the way for Paget Brewster’s Prentiss to (again) leave the canvas.”

In addition to her eternal ‘Battlestar Galactica’ fame and recent starring role in NBC’s failed adaptation of ‘The Firm,’ Helfer will next be seen in the upcoming TNT pilot ‘Scene of the Missing’ as a K-9 Search and Rescue volunteer who works with a golden retriever named Puzzle. The pilot also features fellow sci-fi icon Summer Glau, and continues baffling critics as to how it was even suggested, let alone produced.

What say you, ‘Criminal Minds’ watchers?  Will you dust off your remote to watch  Tricia Helfer for the 2-hour finale, or are you too ravenous for ‘Scent of the Missing’ to have anything tarnish its glory?  Bark out your thoughts on ‘Criminal Minds’ in the comments section!
