Let’s talk about Tuesday night’s TV!

FBI: Missy Peregrym and Zeeko Zaki were straight-up fantastic in their final scenes together of the season. Maggie’s panic as she realized she was trapped juxtaposed with OA’s absolute terror/helplessness over not being able to get her out fast enough was tense and a gut-punch. Logically, I knew they weren’t going to kill off Maggie, but it was hard to watch them both struggle and heartbreaking to watch OA’s breakdown in the hospital, later, when she was finally safe, but still not healed.

JUDGE STEVE HARVEY: Well, the best part of the episode was finding out how good Steve Harvey is at pool.

FBI: INTERNATIONAL: Okay, on a scale from 1-10, how suspicious should we be of Scott’s new friend? I’m at a 17 right now…

NAME THAT TUNE: Okay, Cassadee Pope deserves a do-over, that band rendition of “All I Wanna Do” was awful. But it was a fun episode. No one in either game was blatantly bad, it was fairly even—a good game night.

FBI: MOST WANTED: With maybe literally any other show, it would feel unrealistic that the team is gelling together so well, but considering they’ve had to adapt to probably a dozen different variations so far…it makes sense they’d roll with the punches.

I’m sorry for Hana she didn’t get to connect with her birth mother, but fingers crossed her half-brother ends up being a good guy.

NEW AMSTERDAM: This sounds odd, but I’m so, so impressed with how stressed they managed to make me. The show is no stranger to following a specific character, and certainly no show is going to wipe out this many characters at once, but the brilliance of their approach was they started the danger with something that was both unfortunately common (a possible blind date gone awry) and happening to a (beloved) recurring character. As more and more people were impacted, it became clear it wasn’t just about something bad happening to Wilder and no one knowing—something bigger was going on.

And even throughout that, it was tense. It was stressful. We were seeing just enough of characters we cared about to know they weren’t okay, but with no context about WTF was actually happening. And pairing it with the karaoke? It was emotional whiplash, in the best way. (Save all the characters.)
