Criminal Minds Sneak Peek: Reid Has a Mystery Woman — and She Has Seen His [Spoiler]

Get More: Video

Color us sufficiently intrigued.

This Wednesday on CBS’ Criminal Minds, Reid breaks away to make a phone call — not from the office, not from a land line and not from his cell, but from a (working!) pay phone — and the woman who answers is quite familiar to him… if nobody else (viewers included).

This clip from the phone call scene sheds few clues, though there are some — namely about how long the two have been in touch, a hint at what brought them together in the first place and a nod to the lady’s own skills of observation. It is also revealed that Mystery Woman (who may or may not be played by guest star Heleya de Barros aka “ER Doctor”) has been intimate with Reid in a (ahem) very particular way.

When TVLine asked Matthew Gray Gubler about this storyline pre-season, all he would say is, “It’s very intriguing. I don’t know how to describe it. It’s a uniquely done story of love, I might say. Or maybe not.” He did confirm that Reid’s mystery woman is “someone new,” adding: “I think it’s going to be very well done. It arcs over a few episodes, and…. It’s interesting.”

  • Wonder if they are setting her up to be the one who is hunting the team…

    • I hope not. I would like Reid to have an occasionally mentioned romance that wasn’t based on her being a killer/stalker.

  • Finally!! An explanation of SOME kind about Reid’s headaches and what happened to them! I cannot bear it when story lines are set up and then just left dangling. Sloppy, sloppy, writing and producing. Which is not to say, of course, that this is the END of the headaches storyline but at least it’s not just out there, somewhere, in space, driving those of us with too much time on our minds nutso.

    • Right? It’s like the clouds parted and a beam of sunshine spat out when she mentioned The Headaches.

    • the headaches thing was supposed to be resolved in a storyline which involved jane lynch who plays reids mother but they started it before she was confirmed to appear, then she was blocked by her filming schedule for glee. it wasnt sloppy writing because they had a plan, its just that they were idiots and jumped the gun

      • ^^ Yeah, this. Apparently, it was all supposed to be in “True Genius” last year, but they couldn’t get Lynch, and asked Gubler if he wanted to wait. He said yes, wait. BTW, is it confirmed Heleya is playing the mysterious GF?

  • The mystery lady sounded like Parker from Leverage (Beth Riesgraf) to me….I suppose we will have to wait and see.

    • Thank you! That was driving me nuts trying to figure out where I’d heard her voice before!

    • I thought the same thing! I recognized her voice but I was not sure! And for the few we saw her on “God complex”, I thought that was her! We’ll see! #LeverageLover ;)

  • Yeah, I’m a Leverage fanatic and I’m 100% sure that she’s Beth Riesgraf.

  • I believe it is Beth Riesgraf of Leverage fame. The voice is so unique, as is the shape of her nose.
