Criminal Minds returns to CBS with new episodes later this month, and the eighth season premiere, “The Silencer,” airing September 26, is set to feature yet another creepy unsub and set up something that will be part of the rest of the season.
CM Season 8 Spoilers
Usually, it’s the BAU team doing the hunting as they track down unsubs each week. Well, that’s going to change in the upcoming season, as according to TVLine, executive producer Erica Messer has teased, “At the end of the premiere, you will realize that somebody is taunting the team but also hunting them – and that will be the villain they come head-to-head with in the season finale.” In addition to that, “viewers will be privy to the big bad before anyone else.” With this news, it’s hard not to wonder if one of the profilers will end up in danger in the season finale because of this villain. Something else to look out for is who ends up playing this role. That could make it or break it. The Foyet storyline was as good as it was because of C. Thomas Howell. A storyline like this needs a good actor in the role.
It’s already been teased that Criminal Minds season 8 would include a recurring unsub, unofficially named The Replicator, who would be copying solved cases and pop up throughout the season. It certainly seems like this upcoming season is going to be a good one and should show that even eight years in, the CBS drama is finding things to make it fresh.
