"Criminal Minds" season 9 continues this week with episode 12, "The Black Queen," for which CBS released a new sneak preview on Tuesday, Jan. 14, teasing both the case and certain characters maybe taking a step back from what we're used to seeing between them.
In this "Criminal Minds" episode, Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) has to face her hacker past and reconnect with an old flame and fellow hacker, Shane Wyeth (Paolo Costanzo), to help the team with a case when the BAU heads to San Jose to investigate a string of murders.
This "The Black Queen" sneak peek that has been released shows Garcia take a moment while working to tell Morgan (Shemar Moore) they have to stop "this" when he once again calls her baby girl, as he always does. "The FBI is organizing seminars on the way we talk," she explains, and while he doesn't see anything wrong with their banter, she just wants to cool it for a bit. But when something pops up on her screen, she has something much more important to worry about – presumably that she's identified the culprit as her ex – and runs off to find Hotch (Thomas Gibson).
"Criminal Minds" season 9 airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on CBS. What do you think of this episode 12 "The Black Queen" clip?
