Are you ready for things to get rather interesting over on “Criminal Minds“? Well, the upcoming January 21 episode “Anonymous” is going to be one of the biggest ones that we’ve seen all season for the Rossi character. Not only will this particular installment feature the return of his daughter Joy following her one-episode appearance, but we are also going to get a chance to see how Joe Mantegna fares as a director!
This is the second episode that Mantegna has helmed for the CBS series, having done one back in the fourth season, as well. Ironically, this particular episode aired at almost the same exact time! Who saw that one coming? Directing has become a more frequent practice for some of the series’ stars over the years, as it gives them a chance to expand their own horizons beyond just acting.
Now that we’ve said all of this, take a look at the episode synopsis below for some further scoop in terms of what you can expect:
“The BAU searches Tallahassee for a serial killer who calls the authorities to report the crimes prior to committing murder. Also, as Rossi prepares for a weekend visit with his daughter, Joy, he receives startling news about the death of a comrade in Vietnam.”
We hope that these Rossi-centric stories continue to air, mostly because it is so nice to get a variety of different dimensions to the character. We know now more of who he really is, and we appreciate the added insight.
