Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) saved his life. Meanwhile, we saw Alex Blake (Jeanne Triplehorn) on the plane, leaving for good.

According to TV Line, Jennifer Love Hewitt is joining the team as Kate Callahan. Executive producer Erica Messer mentioned that the viewers will see Hewitt in a different light this time.
“You see her doing something you don’t see our team ever doing,” stated Messer on TV Line. She further explained that Hewitt’s role will entail pretending “to like a criminal.”

Messer added that in Episode 3, the team will be faced with a massive casualty that they have never encountered in 10 years.
