A lot of shows will be airing Halloween themed episodes this week and next and CBS’ Criminal Minds is one of them. On October 27 the episode of Criminal Minds will be called “Devil’s Night”. Devil’s Night is another name for the night before Halloween (October 30), when people would play pranks. From the 1970s to the 1990s, serious vandalism and arson took place in Detroit, Michigan, promoting people to take the pranks more seriously.
In the episode, the Criminal Minds team needs to catch a murderer who is killing in Detroit on Devil’s Night. CBS has released a synopsis for the episode, along with a few photos. We have those for you below, along with a trailer for the episode.
A new episode of The Defenders will air after Criminal Minds, but won’t be a Halloween themed episode.
