‘Criminal Minds’ season 11, episode 2 preview: How ‘The Witness’ continues the story

Criminal Minds -There were many important events that took place on the “Criminal Minds” premiere, from the first appearance of Aisha Tyler as Dr. Tara Lewis to a guest spot to a surprise appearance from someone we did not expect to see for a while.

Guest stars are going to be the name of the game during AJ Cook’s absence, especially when you consider the fact that we’ve also lost Jennifer Love Hewitt as a primary cast member, and there is therefore somewhat of a sentiment that there is some room to fill. Recent “NCIS” player Marisol Nichols is going to fill one of those voids on “The Witness” next week, and we’re getting an appearance from former “The Mentalist” star Tim Kang to go along with it.

“When a Los Angeles bus is attacked with sarin gas, the BAU must act quickly to find the suspect before a larger-scale incident occurs, on CRIMINAL MINDS, Wednesday, Oct. 7 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  Guest stars include Marisol Nichols (NCIS, “24”) as FBI Agent Natalie Colfax, who assists the BAU with the investigation, and Tim Kang (“The Mentalist”) as Charlie Senerak, a medical supply worker.”

How do we describe this episode? “Epic” is the right word given that we are going to see a story chock full of different twists, turns, and action. We’ve long criticized the show for not giving us any information on their B-story in these synopses, so we regrettably have to do the same exact thing here. Would it have really been that much trouble for the show to at least give us something more?
