Let’s talk about Tuesday night’s TV!

FBI: Oh, this episode broke my heart. It absolutely makes sense Jubal would relapse—I’ve been worried about this with Tyler’s health, but frankly going back to when Rina died—but it being paired with a bioweapon? PAIN.

Looking at Maggie and Jubal for a moment, oh my God, their scenes hurt. It would have been tough to see Jubal be so angry and self-protective/destructive to anyone, but Maggie…we know how a bioweapon absolutely upended her life. She was going through her own PTSD, on top of worrying that Jubal had fallen off the wagon. I don’t really know how the two can make it right if Jubal won’t admit what he did, but wow did Jeremy Sisto and Missy Peregrym absolutely killed it.

I really hope this was just an incident-specific slip for Jubal, too. This job is dangerous, and it’s hard to have him holding so many lives in his hands—the team and civilians—when he’s not at his very best.

[For more on the episode, here’s what Sisto had to share about “Breakdown.”]

THE ROOKIE: Well, it speaks to the stakes of this show that I was absolutely worried for a minute they were going to have Celina die. (THANK YOU FOR NOT DOING THAT. Let’s keep her, please.)

I love what we’ve been getting of Chenford so far. Yes, it’s still new, but their devotion to each other is so freaking sweet and lovely to see. It’s a well-earned bubble of happy, even if that means a job transfer and cleaning a (terrifying) RV to get it.

FBI: INTERNATIONAL: This case actually fascinated me a lot—and can you imagine what that poor girl is going to think when she’s reunited with her mom, only to learn her parents split and her mom is now with an officer who was looking for her? (Considering he never gave up and agreed to take in the other girl who was kidnapped, it might not be that hard, but that’s a whole lot of changes at once.)

And Scott is officially staying! I’m glad the problem wasn’t just delayed, but Dandridge was pretty much demolished as a threat. Can’t wait to see what the team is up to now that they can just do their thing.

FBI: MOST WANTED: Wow, can we keep Dante around as a consultant? He saved…everything? And, boy, did I love the dynamic between him and Remy.

But, um, I’m concerned how Remy will handle it if his brother’s killer is actually released… (Especially if his sister thinks it’s okay.)
