On the episode, “Alpha Male” – The BAU investigates when several young men and women are victims of disfiguring acid attacks. Also, Dr. Reid begins to settle into his new surroundings, on a rebroadcast of CRIMINAL MINDS, Wednesday, July 26 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. (Originally broadcast 3/1/17.)
CRIMINAL MINDS revolves around an elite team of FBI profilers who analyze the country’s most twisted criminal minds, anticipating their next moves before they strike again. The Behavioral Analysis Unit’s most experienced agent is David Rossi, a founding member of the BAU, who is essential in helping the team solve new cases. Other members include Special Agent Emily Prentiss, the daughter of high-powered diplomats who returns to the team after being the head profiler at Interpol; Special Agent Dr. Spencer Reid, a classically misunderstood GENIUS whose social IQ is as low as his intellectual IQ is high; Jennifer “J.J.” Jareau, the team’s former unit liaison-turned-profiler who juggles motherhood and marriage with the same skill as solving cases; Penelope Garcia, the team’s indispensable computer wizard who helps research the cases with her unique charm; and Dr. Tara Lewis, a forensic psychologist whose expertise is studying and interviewing serial killers after they’re captured to determine if they are able to stand trial. New to the unit are Luke Alvez, a former Army ranger and excellent tracker recruited from the FBI’s Fugitive Task Force, and Stephen Walker, a seasoned profiler from the Behavioral Analysis Program who brings with him his spy-hunting skill set.
As the team evolves together, the BAU continues its dedication to using their expertise to pinpoint predators’ motivations and identify their emotional triggers in the attempt to stop them.
