As fans of the show know, the team is set to face off with fictional serial killer Everett Lynch, also known as The Chameleon, played by Michael Mosely, one last time. “The Chameleon is back and he’s more chameleon-y than ever,” Matthew, 39, revealed to TV Line. “He’s worse than ever, he’s got a vendetta with Rossi, and he’s taking people’s faces left and right. Rossi, though, has a new theory to pursue, and … well, I don’t want to give too much away.”

He added, “It’s a really beautiful ending, but they’re setting up a lot of different avenues of exploration for these heroes that we’ve come to love and have in our homes for so many years. It’s kind of interesting to see how it all will eventually shake out.
