If you’ve been eager to get some early news when it comes to Criminal Minds season 15, consider this reason to celebrate! Come January 8, you’re going to see the CBS show come back with its landmark premiere. Not only that, but you’re going to have a chance to see a couple of episodes back-to-back! “Under the Skin” and “Awakenings” should each prove to be fantastic in their won way, mostly because we’re dealing with one of the most imposing Big Bads that we’ve seen on this series in some time: Everett Lynch. What we know about him is that he’s smart, shrewd, and willing to whatever it takes to get what he wants. He’s also one of the most dangerous criminals Rossi has ever tried to track down.

Without further ado now, let’s go ahead and give you some details about these episodes … including some big stuff for Spencer Reid.
Episode 1, “Under The Skin” – The BAU team investigates an UnSub with striking similarities to Rossi’s latest obsession, “The Chameleon,” a.k.a. Everett Lynch (Michael Mosley), who nearly killed him and then disappeared, on back-to-back episodes of the 15th and final season premiere of CRIMINAL MINDS, Wednesday, Jan. 8 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Episode 2, “Awakenings” – With a member of the BAU in the hospital, the team searches for Everett Lynch (Michael Mosley), and his daughter, Grace (Alex Jennings). Also, Spencer has a meaningful visit with his mother, Diana Reid (Jane Lynch), while she’s experiencing a period of lucidity, on CRIMINAL MINDS, Wednesday, Jan. 8 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Beyond these details, remember that you’re also going to have a chance during these episodes in order to see the aftermath of the Spencer – JJ cliffhanger. We know that these two do care for each other, but was JJ telling the truth that she’s always “loved” Reid … or was it more of a platonic love?
