After a brief week-long break, the new episode of CBS’ procedural crime drama series “Criminal Minds” is set to return this week featuring a facial surgeon as the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit’s (BAU) unknown subject (UnSub).
Titled “Inner Beauty,” the investigators will be on the hunt for a criminal who has a peculiar obsession towards making women’s beautiful faces ugly. As seen on the trailer, supervisory special agent Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) narrates how the suspect puts the victims into a transformation. The result of this transformation gives satisfaction to the surgeon. Reid even said that “to him they are more beautiful.”
Agent Jennifer Jareau (A.J. Cook) then observed that the UnSub purposely remakes the women to destroy them. It can be seen also on the trailer a scene where the UnSub tells a crying woman “who else is gonna love you the way I do?”
Another thing to expect in the upcoming episode is the focus on fellow BAU agent David Rossi (Joe Mantegna) as he takes on a brief reunion with his ex-wife Hayden Montgomery (guest star Sheryl Lee Ralph). However, the meetup is expected to have tense moments since Hayden was responsible for keeping Joy Struthers (Amber Stevens West) away from Rossi for almost 30 years.
For the show’s penultimate episode of the current season, TVLine revealed that actress Frances Fisher is set to appear on episode 21 “Devil’s Backbone.” She will play Antonia Slade, “a crazy UnSub” that agent Jason Gideon (Mandy Patinkin) encountered 15 years ago. Fisher stars in the ABC drama series “Resurrection” and also made guest appearances in shows such as “CSI,” “Castle,” and “Grey’s Anatomy.” She also appeared in the movie “Titanic.”
“Criminal Minds” season 11 episode 20 “Inner Beauty” airs April 13, 9 p.m. ET on CBS. Episode 21 will then air a week after.
