Criminal Minds season 8 continues next week with episode 7, "The Fallen," which will have some focus on Rossi as he reconnects with someone from his military past.
CM Season 8 Episode 7 "The Fallen" Promo
"The BAU travels to Santa Monica when burned bodies of homeless people begin showing up by the famous pier. Also, Rossi reconnects with his former Marine sergeant from Vietnam."
The last episode, "The Apprenticeship," teased that someone's watching the BAU and began to introduce the recurring unsub as a body has shown up with his mouth sewn shutÂ—the same MO from the first case of the season. Will they be facing more of that in this next episode? The preview focuses entirely on the case like always and doesn't offer a hint as to what to expect regarding Rossi and his former Marine sergeant, but that is something to look forward to given that this isn't a show that spends all that much time on the characters' pasts.
The theme of the Criminal Minds season 8 episode 7 promo for "The Fallen" (below) is cleanliness. This unsub is apparently very much into being cleanÂ—and they're pouring bleach on their victims. Is it about cleanliness or cleansing? It sounds like Reid may have figured it out: "To him, they're a virus." The unsub sees himself as the cure. Now that's disturbing.
What do you think of the Criminal Minds season 8 episode 7 preview of "The Fallen"?
