"it is my least favorite episode ever."
Tell us how you really feel, Kirsten Vangsness! crook intellects' season-eight laste airs tonight and let's just say something major goes down. Like, one of our beloved characters dying kind of major. it is a death so upsetting that Vangsness tells us, "i have never hated an episode more than this and I think we should all not watch it and then they will must rewrite it and make history different. I hate it that much."
So who's dying? And what was it like working with Star Wars legend Mark Hamill, who guest stars in the laste? We caught up with Vangsness and Shemar Moore to receive scoop on the season eight laste, and find out what's in store next season!
"One of us is in jeopardy, but if you do the math and go in the Internet you are going to see who signaled deals and who didn't! [Laughs.] So if you signaled a deal, it must mean you are alcorrect," Moore teases of two-hour laste. "it is action-packed, it is fun, it moves along and it is intense. Somebody that the fans know quite well but least expect is up against it."
Silver lining? There is no major cliffhanger to spend the summer fretting over, as Moore reveals, "After all the explosions and stuff, there is a nice calm, a nice calm with the releadinging team."
Aside from the death, explosions and calm, fans can expect to see Hamill make a "creepy" turn in the laste, though Moore tells us the actor was "charming" and guest-starred on the show after a nudge from his daughter. "His daughter is a enormous fan of the show, so Matthew Gray Gubler and I were arguing over who she liked more! She is like, ‘No, I did it because of Joe [Mantegna]!'"
