Criminal Minds season 14 episode 2 preview: A Joe Mantegna spotlight

Criminal Minds
Following tonight’s premiere, the show must go on with Criminal Minds season 14 episode 2 on CBS next week.

One of the themes this season is what makes these agents who they are. That certainly means them taking down UnSubs in the field, but that also means learning more about who some of these people are when they are not on the job. This is equally important and should be prioritized just as much — and it does seem like it will be moving into episode 2 at least. This is a big story for David Rossi, one that brings his ex Krystall back into the fold. It’s possible now that, after everything that he has learned in his life, he may be able to be there for her in a way in which he was not in the past.

For a little more information on Criminal Minds season 14 episode 2, including Rossi’s story and the case of the week, CarterMatt has the synopsis below:

“Starter Home” – When the mummified remains of numerous victims are found in the walls of an elderly couple’s remote South Carolina home, Rossi, J.J. and Simmons are dispatched to track down a trail of clues that date back over 20 years. The hunt becomes urgent after BAU learns the killer has a specific ritual of when to strike, and like clockwork another person goes missing. Also, Rossi reconnects with his ex-wife, Krystall (Gail O’Grady), on CRIMINAL MINDS, Wednesday, Oct. 10 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

It does feel clear after reading this that we’re looking at a case years in the making, one with incredibly high stakes and also a great deal of intensity. It also does feel like Rossi’s going to have to prioritize properly to spend time with Krystall, since he absolutely is going to be busy.
