The team’s newest addition, Kate Callahan (played by The Client List's Jennifer Love Hewitt), will be introduced while she's working undercover on a case. “You see her doing something you don't see our team ever doing,” says executive producer Erica Messer. “[She has to] sit there and pretend to like a criminal.” Early episodes will touch on how the “traumatic” season finale shooting affected both Garcia and Reid “more than we know,” as well as shed light on what's new with Rossi and JJ. On the romantic front, it's BAU for the BAU, though that could change. “We need to figure out a few things with Morgan's girlfriend [Savannah] and Hotch's girlfriend [Beth],” says Messer, “and see how we'll explore those stories this year.”
BONUS SPOILER | Episode 3 is a “big” one, says Messer, as the team is called to the site of “one of the largest disasters with mass casualities they’ve seen in their 10-year history.”
RETURN DATE | Wednesday, Oct. 1 at 9/10c (CBS)

Will we find out what happened to Blake on Criminal Minds? — Mindy
Yes, and you won’t have to wait long to get the scoop. “You’ll learn in the teaser that she’s actually moved to Boston and she’s teaching full time,” executive producer Erica Messer tells me. “She’s not an FBI agent anymore, but she’s taking all of her skills and teaching them to others, which is a pretty honorable thing to do.”
