Next on "Criminal Minds" season 7, the BAU team searches rural Oklahoma to find a serial killer who claims the lives of several women. Each of the killer's victims has one of their five senses being taken away before they are murdered.
While the team is pursuing the murderer who likes to videotape himself and hear his victims scream, JJ and Emily Prentiss get the cold shoulder from Reid as he deals with their deception about Prentiss' presumed death. This episode entitled "Proof" will air Wednesday, September 28 at 9 P.M. on CBS.
The new season premiere has brought back familiar face Prentiss (Paget Brewster). The emotional aftermath of her return will linger with the team a lot in the second episode, "some more in three and throughout the season," executive producer and showrunner Erica Messer recently told Entertainment Weekly.
Asked if there will be new Doyle-type mega villain following his death, Messer said, "You know, it's hard to top Ian Doyle." She added, "We haven't thought about unsub arcs. We're really concentrating on our hero arcs right now."
