Well, that's definitely a way to kick things off with Paramount+'s Criminal Minds: Evolution. When the dust settled on "Just Getting Started" and "Sicarius," the BAU team realized that their cases are connected to a sizeable serial killer network run by someone named Sicarius. And as developments continue to grow, the BAU welcomes back former analyst Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness). But our heroes also have internal threats to deal with after learning that the Department of Justice is looking to shut them down sooner rather than later. And that brings us to the following preview images for this week's episode, S16E03 "Moose."
