‘Criminal Minds’ First Look: JJ Returns!

Posted on February 24, 2011


As I reported last month, CBS’ Criminal Minds will be welcoming a familiar face while at the same time bidding farewell to another. After the jump I have your first look and details at the upcoming storyline!

In the upcoming March 16th episode titled “Lauren,” Special Agent Emily Prentiss (Paget Brewster) will come to one hell of a final confrontation with her nemesis Ian Doyle (Timothy V. Murphy) that results in Prentiss going missing. The Behavioral Analysis Unit calls upon their former team member JJ Jareau (A.J. Cook) to help search for the disappearance of one of their own.

Series star Matthew Gray Gubler directed the episode, with a script from Breen Frazier. Below, I have embedded a first look still image at what I believe is an emotional, not to be missed episode.
