About Last Night…THE FLASH, FBI, SUPERMAN & LOIS, and More

March 3, 2021 by  


“Discord” – As the team hunts a killer who is fatally shooting seemingly unrelated targets, an experience on the job has new agent Tiffany Wallace (Katherine Renee Turner) examining the tension between her career as an FBI special agent and the responsibility she feels to her community as a Black woman, on FBI, Tuesday, March 2 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Let’s talk about Tuesday night’s TV!

THE FLASH: The scene with Barry as the Wells was absolutely fantastic; Grant Gustin seemed to weave through the personalities with ease.

The CW shows are in a fascinating position, because they’re really finishing out their season for the first batch of episodes in the new year. It’s nice to know Iris will be back soon, but a lot of these big moves have me a bit skeptical. Is Wells REALLY gone, or was this intended to be a cliffhanger through the end of 6/break between 7?

FBI: Katherine Renee Turner was fantastic as Tiffany was given center stage. Police reform has been a topic many procedurals have tackled this year, some very well, others…not as much. But with this, FBI focused on how Tiffany was grappling with being a Black woman and belonging to an agency where she could see injustices from the inside and was viewed as a traitor by other Black people. The show did a good job of addressing her struggle, as well as Scola’s missteps as he tried to protect his partner—in a way she gently, but firmly, told him was actually not helpful.

I know FBI doesn’t need to keep on this topic, but I hope they don’t drop it.

THE VOICE: Okay, this episode was so, so much stronger than the premiere. There were a bunch of great performers, with my favorites from the hour being Gean Garcia and Zae Romeo. Now it feels like we have a season going.

SUPERMAN & LOIS: I’m loving the family core at the center of the show. It’s so, so, so hard to have enjoyable kids/teens on TV, and S&L has taken care to make them real characters instead of caricatures.

So, uh, with Luthor from another Earth and thinking this Superman is bad, are we leading to a mid-season twist where General Lane becomes the Big Bad? (His skepticism over Clark’s decisions has me worried…)

PRODIGAL SON: Ohhhhh, Martin’s in trouble. Dr. Capshaw is absolutely up to something.

I cannot believe Ainsley tricked Malcolm. Like, it’s brilliant, but a bit deceiving and more than a little worrisome. And Jess writing a book? Yes, please, but also…this won’t end well.

I’m really curious how the show is going to handle the new profiler, because can Nicholas’ murder really stay a secret forever? I want it to, because we know the circumstances of his death, but I fear how much it could change the entire core dynamic once the truth comes out. (For more on the episode, here’s what director/star Lou Diamond Phillips, plus stars Halston Sage and Bellamy Young had to say.)

FBI: MOST WANTED: Hey, Brooke Smith! She’s been incredible on BIG SKY, so I’m glad we got to see a bit of her on this show. (Albeit a villain here, where she was more, uh, complicated on BS.)

I’m happy for Jess that he was able to take his ring off, even if his initial attempt at moving on didn’t work as planned. (I had wondered pre-season if he would be paired up with Jackie, but guessing they won’t be going down that road.)

NEW AMSTERDAM: That opening montage absolutely broke me. We’ve seen the pandemic portrayed to varying degrees of success on scripted television, and I’m glad we didn’t linger the opening months for healthcare workers in New York. But goodness.

Vijay being sick is both heartbreaking and makes total sense. And even the win that he woke up was immediately tainted by the fact that he’s very sick and needs heart surgery. Good thing they know a good heart surgeon… (For more on the episode, here’s what Ryan Eggold had to say.)
