When Thomas Gibson was fired in the middle of "Criminal Minds" Season 12, all fans were shocked.

But the good news is that his exit in "Criminal Minds" Season 12 meant that there is a possibility that he could return in the future.

The possibility of the return of Thomas Gibson is because a victim of Peter Lewis, aka Mr. Scratch, has surfaced. In the latest episode of "Criminal Minds" Season 12 entitled "Mirror Imaabrielge" dealt with Dr. tara Lewis (Aisha Tyler) meeting her estranged brother. But the brother, Gabriel, turned out as not only an impostor but a victim of Mr. Scratch as well.

Fans will know that Aaron Hotchner left the BAU in "Criminal Minds" Season 12 because his son, Jack, was being threatened by the serial killer. They thought that having their family under surveillance would help, but when Mr. Scratch showed up at his son's school, Hotch took drastic measures and got them under witness protection.

In the next episode of "Criminal Minds" Season 12 titled "Scarecrow", the BAU team will be dealing with a new killer, who is responsible for dozens of people dying. The killer, who wears a scarecrow mask, hence the title, will require the arrival of a new character, Stephen Walker (Damon Gupton), an experienced profiler from the FBI.
