Criminal Minds is doing something unique in its final season: offering a look into how the members of the BAU spend a Saturday off in the January 22 episode.

In “Saturday,” Rossi (Joe Mantegna) and Prentiss (Paget Brewster) help Matt (Daniel Henney) put together a new crib, and Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) leads a hacking competition.

Plus, Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) strikes up a conversation with Max (Rachael Leigh Cook), which comes about as part of an assignment from a therapist “to go have a normal day,” executive producer Erica Messer told TV Insider. “In that normal day, he meets someone who makes him smile and makes him happy. JJ sees that in him and tells him to go chase it.”

Click through the gallery above for a look at Reid with Max and the rest of the team’s Saturday activities.
