Let’s talk about Tuesday night’s TV!

FBI: Look, I always have a feeling of dread when a female character on a procedural is pregnant, because so many things can (and frequently do) go wrong, but I’m hoping for Nina and Scola’s sake they can get through this pregnancy as happy and healthy as possible. Now, that absolutely does not mean things won’t be a mess when the baby is born, because Nina thinking about moving across the country is absolutely going to cause problems. But at least they got through this hurdle.

The case was heartbreaking, though, and it was great to see Will Sasso in a really serious (and messed up) role.

FBI: INTERNATIONAL: WTF is Dandridge doing to Scott, and how much is Scott absolutely losing his mind as he’s being taken away from his team? (My—likely incorrect—theory is that it somehow has something to do with Scott’s mom. But I’m sure it’s waaaaay more sinister.)

Loved seeing Vo go undercover, though, because she really did hold her own, even when her cover was blown so fast. And Smitty saving the day? Love it, love this team.

[For more on the episode, here’s what showrunner Derek Haas said about the tension with Dandridge.]

THE VOICE: It was…a weird finale?

By the nature of Blake having 60 percent of the finalists, it made sense how much of a presence he had. (There’s also the elephant in the room that this is his penultimate season.) But as it was, he had two sketches (with John), as well as Blake having to do four performances. (Three duets with his contestants and then one with Kane Brown.) Blake was game for everything, but there was a lot of shtick.

And normally that would be fine, and expected, but the announcement at the end felt very, very, very rushed? I don’t know why they didn’t announce the second and third place and draw that tension out more…had it been a two Team Blake finalists, that would have been big! Had it been Team Blake and Team Camila, we could have had a final moment of suspense. And it’s not like they utilized the time to let Bryce sing, either. bodie and Morgan deserved better, as did Bryce.

FBI: MOST WANTED: Man, I love Ray. This show has done a really good job of introducing new characters—and they’ve had to do it frequently—and the very fast bond between Hana and Ray has led to a really natural way for us to learn about Ray in the quieter moments. In lesser hands, writing and acting-wise, him talking about his past could have felt like an exposition dump. Instead, it just further solidified how much I’m really digging the buddy vibe between Ray and Hana, and making me want to see more of them.

(Also, the case was twisted as hell.)

[For more on the episode, here’s what Edwin Hodge said about Ray’s backstory and a possible new connection in the agent’s life.]
