Criminal Minds Sneak Peek: Rossi's Birthday Ends on a Not-So-Happy Note

David Rossi gets a birthday gift he certainly didn’t ask for in this exclusive clip from tonight’s Criminal Minds (CBS, 9/8c).

In the Season 12 episode titled “Profiling 202,” Rossi (played by Joe Mantegna) is at home winding down his special day when he gets a phone call from serial killer Tommy Yates (played by Adam Nelson), a longtime nemesis who in the Season 7 episode “Profiling 101” negotiated away a death sentence in trade for annually disclosing the location of one of his many victims.

Typically, that intel comes via a prison visit from Rossi. Except now Yates is on the loose — and he has a second surprise to spring on his old foe, after delivering a few haunting, discordant bars of “Happy Birthday to You.” Press play above to find out what that twist is.

    Still don’t understand why they needed to add another face. Guess you can’t have more women than men on a show?
