Criminal Minds ended season 12 with quite the cliffhanger — six team members (Prentiss, Rossi, JJ, Tara, Stephen and Luke) in SUVs that were put right in the path of an 18-wheeler, thanks to a trap left for them in the road — and when season 13 begins, we’re going to see the aftermath of that crash. Did everyone survive?

In the premiere, “Wheels Up,” Agent Matt Simmons, from Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders’ International Response Team, joins the BAU as they try to take down Mr. Scratch and save one of their own in the process.

Check out the promo for the premiere to see who ends up in the hospital:

Not everyone is going to be able to walk away from that crash. Also, Reid’s back in the field (and therefore reinstated).

Watch a sneak peek of Garcia calling on Simmons for help:

After Garcia loses the signals from everyone in the field, she brings in Simmons for help. As they drive to the scene, she calls it in, explaining that Reid hasn’t been reinstated yet. And she’s had enough with protocol. She needs backup to the coordinates she’s given — and once they see the aftermath of the crash, “lots of medical.”

Criminal Minds season 13 premieres Wednesday, September 27 at 10/9c on CBS. Want more news? Like our Facebook page.

She has a love for all things fiction, starting from a young age with ER and The X-Files on the small screen and the Nancy Drew books. Arrow kicked off the Arrowverse and her true passion for all things heroes. She’s enjoyed getting into the minds of serial killers since Criminal Minds, so it should be no surprise that her latest obsession is Prodigal Son.
