Despite all appearances, it is in fact no day at the beach for the BAU team in this first look at a 2018 episode of Criminal Minds.
In the CBS drama’s first episode back from the holiday break, titled “Submerged” and airing Wednesday, Jan. 3, the BAU launches a search for an UnSub with a puzzling past when a series of backyard pool homicides are reported in California.
In the photos above and below, you can see that the investigation leads the team to a lakefront, where a series of surprises await them — including Agent Matt Simmons (played by Daniel Henney) getting shot, immediately after which he witnesses the UnSub committing… well, a devastating act.
In the same episode, Lou Diamond Phillips (Longmire) guest-stars as Sheriff Clifford.
