Tonight on Criminal Minds: A Personal Case for Rossi (Sneak Peek)

When the team head to the Santa Monica Pier on tonight’s Criminal Minds, the case becomes personal for Rossi (Joe Mantegna) when he spots a face from his past. We will see an unfamiliar Rossi and get a glimpse at his life long before he was an FBI agent. On Sunday, Joe Mantegna co-hosted PBS’s National Salute to Veterans and the case in tonight’s episode highlights an issue that is very close to Mantegna’s heart.

The team are called in to investigate after three burned bodies are left near the Santa Monica Pier and they discover that people that have been murdered are all homeless. There is another twist when Rossi sees his commanding officer from when he was a Marine. Emmy nominee Meshach Taylor (Designing Women) guest stars as Rossi’s former Marine Sergeant, who has now fallen on harder times. There is flashbacks to a young Rossi (played by Robert Dunne) to show his time in Vietnam, revealing more about who Rossi is.

This episode highlights one problem that some veterans face and executive producer Erica Messer tells Entertainment Weekly that “It’s a special episode for Joe [Mantegna]. He’s been asking us to do a story on homeless veterans.” It looks like it will be a particularly heartbreaking and touching instalment from the BAU team tonight.

The end of last week revisited this idea that there is a season long unsub, who we haven’t seen since the premiere episode. Firstly, Hotch (Thomas Gibson) got a call to say that a victim had been found in Dallas with their mouth sewn shut, even though ‘The Silencer’ is dead. The final scene at the softball game (yay Reid!) was all good fun until they made it clear that the team was being watched and photographed. Messer revealed to Entertainment Weekly that “You’ll see him sprinkled until episode 16, but when that one rolls around, it’s game on.” Are you excited about this plot development?

Watch a sneak peek for tonight’s episode “The Fallen” below.
