“Don’t Say Her Name Again” – When a local predator begins extorting underage American girls online, the Fly Team attempts to bring the offender to justice with on-site help from one of the victims. Also, Kellett decides she should find a roommate, on the CBS Original Series FBI: INTERNATIONAL, Tuesday, Sept. 27 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.

Let’s talk about Tuesday night’s TV!

FBI: Oh, Scola and Nina. Your poker faces could use a bit of work. They (and we, because I don’t want to see anything bad happen to either of them) are lucky their connection didn’t cause real damage in the field. I worry how poorly this could end—both because of the logistics of members on the team who are out in the field and in those dangerous positions and the off-screen fact that one actor is a regular and the other is not—but I hope they find a way to get on the same page for a bit of time. It was lovely to see such a different side of them both.

[For more on the episode, here’s what John Boyd said about “Love Is Blind.”]

THE VOICE: With all due respect to the contestants, it was a pretty lackluster episode. Parijita Bastola’s “Jealous” was incredible, but it remains frustrating we’re seeing so many no-turn auditions when people who made it through—even if it was a single-chair—get relegated to clip reels.

FBI: INTERNATIONAL: This was definitely one of the strongest episodes of the series thus far. Ruby Jay was incredible as Charlotte, the young woman determined to bring down the predator, and it was really great that the women on the team—especially Vo and Jamie—got to express how deeply upsetting this was. (And, of course, I wish they had found a way to make it a crossover with SVU…but I’m sure that would have been an absolute logistical nightmare.)

I also loved the end scene when Vo admitted she had told Smitty about Scott’s relationship with Jamie because she could not keep secrets. A lot of times procedurals hyperfocus on the cases, and I get it, but especially if your team is shifting, it’s lovely to see them in these off-moments and be reminded they’re friends, too.

NEW AMSTERDAM: Oh noooooo to Iggy’s dating video. But of course he accidentally set his filter to 90+. I’m torn on whether I think he and Martin will reunite (I’m at 80-20 for yes), but it’s at least nice to see them being friendly given they have to co-parent.

I don’t know if real hospitals are doing Max’s sponsor a patient program, but, I love it, even if it’s depressing as hell as it needs to exist. (Very similar to Donors Choose, which does incredible work, even if it remains embarrassing that teachers are not properly supported.)

I am so happy Max realized he should, at the bare minimum, learn a few signs for Wilder. But if the show is actually inching toward any sort of romance between the two…Wilder deserves better than being a rebound. I hope that doesn’t get lost amidst the chaos and him trying to find a new normal.

FBI: MOST WANTED: Well, this episode made me sick to my stomach. I’m glad shows are handling the abhorrent issue of abortion rights being demolished, but…whew. Hard to watch. Heartbreaking. And maybe the real world won’t escalate quite this way—it’s TV, after all—but too many people will find themselves backed into dangerous corners because their right to choose what to do with their body has been revoked.

On, somehow, a lighter note, Barnes and Remy’s continued butting heads hurt. I’m glad they cleared the air, even if it might not be 100 percent fixed.

I’m intrigued by Ray in his first episode. He got thrown into the deep end (and had to contend with Barnes and Remy’s drama, too), so I’m excited to see what he’s like when he’s a little more settled.

THE ROOKIE: FEDS: I love the cast, and I unexpectedly love the sweet friendship between Simone and Brendon. THE ROOKIE is one of the best procedurals on TV, and I hope this can find itself in a similar way.
