“Prodigal Son” – As the team investigates a deadly robbery that garnered a cache of automatic weapons for the killers, they discover one of the culprits is a classmate of Jubal’s son, who is reluctant to cooperate with the case, on the CBS Original series FBI, Tuesday, Oct. 4 (8:00-9:00 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: Goodness, Jeremy Sisto is great.

This was always going to be a tough episode, but Sisto really did handle it well. The grief and trauma that Jubal was going through as it became more and more clear that his son was entangled with the killer…and then his son was taken hostage. It was uncomfortable, in all the expected ways. And on a practical level, this did work better coming after the premiere and those troubles.

I don’t know how many casual viewers know/realize this was the intended finale. I’m so, so, so glad CBS pulled this from its original air date, because even if it didn’t touch on the school angle as much as I feared, it would have been absolutely gutting to watch as intended.

On a television note, is this the first time a regular character on a non-medical show had COVID? (Obviously the medical shows played with that as a storytelling device, but I can’t recall anyone off the top of my head having more than precautionary quarantine.)

THE VOICE: Camila Cabello not knowing “You Were Meant for Me”…I’ve never felt older. As for the contestants themselves, Grace Bello was my highlight of the night.

FBI: INTERNATIONAL: LOVE Smitty going to bat for them; she’s already such a great fit with the team. And, once again, Jamie is a badass.

But…yeah, I’m worried about Scott’s dogsitter, both for the kid and for Tank’s sake. (#protectTank)

NEW AMSTERDAM: Well, I don’t blame the doctors for feeling absolutely grossed out. Screw that entire family, and good for the (young) brother for trying to save his kid sister from being a child bride.

I’m also torn by being wildly impressed by Wilder for using glasses to get an address off a screen (even if I guessed that’s what she was doing) and being, uh, bothered, by the clear boundary smashing. Sigh. Of course the donor was going to consent to give blood and of course it was the woman who opened the door, but I wish they hadn’t been able to cheat their way around the rules.

FBI: MOST WANTED: Oh my God, Kristin. Poor Kristin. It was bad enough hearing how awful her time undercover was. But to have to fight for her life? And see the scars? I’m sure she won’t actually take the time, but she deserves it. I hope the tattoo she got also brings her peace.
