In our exclusive clip of this week’s episode, J.J. is tapped for a meeting with Assistant Director Linda Barnes (Kim Rhodes) to discuss a covert operation J.J. was part of a few years ago. Why the trip down memory lane? J.J. suspects it’s part of Barnes’ campaign to become director of the bureau.
If the name Linda Barnes raises the hairs on the back of your neck, they should. As J.J. finds out while she’s stressing about the meeting, Barnes was instrumental in disbanding the Beyond Bordersteam, so she’s a destructive force to be reckoned with. Simmons (Daniel Henney) definitely doesn’t think anything good can come from this meeting, so how much should J.J. be worried?
