Criminal Minds fans: Do you remember when showrunner Erica Messer teased that one of the agents would be getting a new love interest this season? Well, the speculation can now cease. Former Dirty Sexy Money star Bellamy Young will play Beth, a museum curator who will run into Hotch (Thomas Gibson) while he is training for a triathlon.
Earlier this year, Messer spoke about wanting the widower to get a fresh start after the death of his ex-wife and first love Haley (Meredith Monroe), back in season 5. Messer also said that Hotch has been 'going through the motions' for a while now and she would like to see him smile once again. Will Young's Beth be the one to bring a little light back into this single father's life or will their relationship merely be a stepping stone to a happier Agent Hotchner?
