Look for the 75-year-old character to be suffering from Alzheimer's. He'll crosses paths with the Behavioral Analysis Unit when he comes out of retirement and attempts to kill again, even though he can't remember his violent past.

The role marks Travanti's first television appearance since a 2008 episode of Grey's Anatomy.
