Next week, “Criminal Minds” arrives with a new episode in “Scream,” which happens to be a rather significant one for the direction of the Kate Callahan character. We’re going to see Jennifer Love Hewitt have a good deal of screen time in this episode. Not only that, but we are also going to see quite a bit of her home life. Also, Greg Grunberg! Anytime that we get a chance to see the “Heroes” alum is a cause for celebration in our books.
Want to get a few other details right now in terms of what to expect? Have no fear, since CBS just released what is the official synopsis for this hour:
“Victims in California have the BAU searching for an UnSub who may have witnessed abuse as a child. Meanwhile, Kate shows parental concern when her niece, Meg, makes a date with a friend to meet a boy they met online, on CRIMINAL MINDS, Wednesday, Feb. 11 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Greg Grunberg (@greggrunberg; “Felicity,” “Lost”) guest stars as Kate’s husband, Chris Callahan.”
We’re excited to see what happens with Kate, and in addition to that, we feel like the case of the week is going to be a tricky one. We have an UnSub here who is apparently making it a mission statement to put children through trauma, and then record their screams. Hence, the title of this episode. We’re not just talking here about a reference to some horror franchise.
There are some further twists and turns that we will probably find out about with this episode soon, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for more in the days ahead.
