‘Criminal Minds’ season 9 spoilers: Thomas Gibson on horrific real-life story coming soon

Criminal Minds -Is “Criminal Minds” done disturbing you? Nope, not even close. This is a show about watching who are basically terrible people doing terrible things, and if that was to suddenly change, the show really would not have that much more to say.

But even with saying all of this, the series may still have something coming up that takes the cake when it comes to being harsh and uncomfortable: Something that is pretty true to life for show consultant and former BAU agent Jim Clemente. Speaking to TV Guide, star Thomas Gibson, who will be directing this episode in particular, had the following to say on the subject:

“It’s based on a case he worked in real life — the disappearance of a child. There are some horrific things in it. It’s a story about how profiling really works, the true ins and outs of it, and how they caught the people behind the disappearance. It’s a little more like our earlier episodes.”

For what we see here, this means that there really is not going to be much time for you to sit around and catch your breath after what was a pretty difficult episode in its own right on Wednesday night, where we witnessed Gibson’s Hotch see a great deal of his past via a coma-induced dream while there was a difficult case regarding a father and daughter playing out in real-time. Nothing this season has been particularly lighthearted, and while there may be a reason to celebrate with the 200th episode, don’t expect to see anything altogether cheery there, either, unless you consider finding out some more backstory on the character of JJ (AJ Cook) to be particularly pleasing. There’s a lot of good stuff coming, and also stories that will rattle you in a way that the show has not done already (and that is really saying something).
