'Criminal Minds' Season 15 Episode 5 promo teases Matt Simmons and Luke Alvez are in trouble
Episode 5 'Ghost' will be centered around the abduction of Luke Alvez and Matt Simmons
After one of the mellowest, happiest and most light heated episodes ever on 'Criminal Minds', we've got the darkness back next week. Episode 5 'Ghost' will be centered around the abduction of Luke Alvez and Matt Simmons.
The BAU goes to Des Plaines, Illinois, following a series of fatal shootings to investigate into what appears to be a copycat serial killer. But the investigation is derailed when the team is attacked. The teaser for the episode shows a worried Rossi telling the team that "the boys" had been taken and the scene shifts to Alvez and Simmons tied to a pole in an empty warehouse. "I will watch both of you suffer," says a male voice in the teaser as Alvez looks on, his head bleeding.
Simmons just had a baby girl (Rose, named after Rossi) and the new father has a lot to lose in this investigation. Alvez too just returned to the BAU and is just starting to reconnect with everyone, especially Gacia. If something were to happen to him, the fandom would be heartbroken.
It is impossible to say what will happen this season because it's the last and it is quite possible that the BAU will lose a member or two in an attempt to provide some closure to plotlines. There are just four more episodes remaining for this season to close down and there's still the Everett Lynch plotline that we haven't explored all the way. Is there a chance that this UnSub is actually related to the Lynch murders?
It would make a lot of sense for him to attack the BAU since he feels so personally offended by them and the guy has had a copy cat serial killer operate before. Thanks to Rossi, he was caught.
Catch 'Criminal Minds' on Wednesday, January 29 at 9 pm ET/PT on CBS.
