Although we meet her in the premiere, viewers won’t get the full 411 on Jennifer Love Hewitt’s character Kate Callahan for a while. Some of her secrets will emerge when a case early in the season hits a little too close to home. (Hint: It involves a plane crash.) And although she’ll fill in the blanks to at least one member of the BAU, he or she may not be the first person to find out.
