'Criminal Minds' season 11, episode 9 spoilers: Show breaks off for Thanksgiving; hunt for 'Dirty Dozen' resumes next week


Numerous TV shows either have taken a break via airing their fall finale last week or will be going on a one-week hiatus to give way to Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, “Criminal Minds” will be one of them. Despite this, the hit criminal series of CBS left a lot of things for fans to look forward to when they come back next week.

The Behavioral Analysis Unit of FBI (BAU) will delve deeper into the murders of two undercover Drug Enforcement Administration agents and another case of a missing one. The group will be in contact with the National Security Agency (NSA), and they will join forces in infiltrating an underground Internet drug group, which they believe is behind the murders and kidnapping.

BAU will be accepting the job as Hotch (Thomas Gibson) believes that working through the case will give them additional information in finally cracking the notorious “Dirty Dozen.” The group of online hit men continues to haunt the BAU unit since they were first introduced in season 11 and after Giuseppe Montolo warned Morgan (Shemar Moore) about the “Dirty Dozen” earlier this season. The problem with the “Dirty Dozen” is that there is almost no information available about them, therefore making it difficult for the BAU group to decode their modus operandi.

Meanwhile, the beloved technical analyst of “Criminal Minds,” Kirsten Vangsness just got engaged to her boyfriend, actor and writer Keith Hanson. Hanson popped the question two weeks ago in from of the couple’s closest friends and family in Redbury Hotel. The actress who played the quirky Penelope Garcia in the show gushed about her fianc revealing that Hanson will be more specific in the details of the wedding compared to her. Because of that, the planning for their wedding might take a little bit longer.

“Criminal Minds” will be back on air next week, Dec. 2, on CBS.
