Criminal Minds is back on the case!
New team member Adam Rodriguez, who plays FBI Fugitive Task Force Agent Luke Alvez, gets a major case of déjà vu on Wednesday’s new episode of the long-running crime procedural.
In ET’s exclusive sneak peek, Alvez and BAU head David Rossi (Joe Mantegna) are on their way to question a potential suspect, and Alvez reflects on his former post at the FBI, where he was able to be more of a lone wolf.
“Yeah, well, I could take a little getting used to,” Rossi says, half joking.
“Yeah, a little bit,” Alvez mutters under his breath.
But Alvez, who’s still acclimating himself into the BAU team, reverts to his old ways when the culprit tries to flee -- and thankfully, his quick actions pay off!
“This takes me back!” Alvez declares after kicking the fleeing suspect’s butt. Watch the exclusive video above to see how it all plays out!
It’s been a season of change for Criminal Minds, which recently welcomed fan favorite Paget Brewster back into the fold following Thomas Gibson’s final episode. The one-hour drama also cast Damon Gupta as a new series regular making his debut in the season’s eighth episode.
Though it is still unclear how the fate of Gibson’s character, Aaron Hotchner, will be addressed on the show, his final scene featured Hotchner giving key advice to a colleague about spending time away from work.
Criminal Minds airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
