“June” – The Fly Team, with the help of their new intel analyst, Special Agent Amanda Tate (new series regular Christina Wolfe), works to clean up the pieces left behind after a massive explosion rocks headquarters and their key suspect slips away, on the third season premiere of FBI: INTERNATIONAL, Tuesday, Feb. 13 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and streaming on Paramount+ (live and on demand for Paramount+ with SHOWTIME subscribers, or on demand for Paramount+ Essential subscribers the day after the episode airs).

Let’s talk about Tuesday night’s TV!

FBI: First of all, Katherine Renee Kane was fantastic. Heartbreaking, and absolutely fantastic.

It’s never easy when a show loses a character, even a recurring one, and FBI handled the balance really well—we got beats where it was clear everyone was feeling the loss, trying to adjust to their new normal, but knowing they had to move on to try and get justice for Hobbs. It’s a tricky line to toe, but it worked here.

There was also a small beat in the hour I really appreciated—which I did speak with Kane about, so please read her thoughts if you haven’t—as OA and Tiff commiserated over POC being indiscriminately blamed when a terror attack happens. The show didn’t make it a big deal, they didn’t hit us over the head with it, but it was just a small, sad moment where these two agents—who are putting their lives on the line every day—acknowledged the (unfair) reality of the world we live in, the shared pain they have, and then it was on to the next thing. Kane and Zeeko Zaki were just great at expressing so much in such a small encounter.

I’m so curious when and how this case comes up next. We’ve had Big Bads before, but this feels different. And with a smaller season, how will that come into play?

[For more on the episode, here’s what Kane shared.]

THE FLOOR: What a brutal night for the contestants who had previous success. I can’t believe Stephanie was taken out by BBQ—and with a second to go! (I also can’t believe two different matches came down to a second.) I was screaming at my screener at the lack of passing during the hair category, but somehow it also worked?! It really feels like anyone’s game now, which is interesting.

FBI: INTERNATIONAL: Okay, I am begrudgingly admitting INTERNATIONAL got me good. I was convinced Raines would be the only one safe given he was outside for the explosion…and then he was the one most hurt? Well played, writers. Well played. (Ouch.) Given we had to pick up immediately after the finale—and the other shows are ahead in time—I wonder if we’ll jump ahead to miss some of his (long) rehab process.

Look, I’m heartbroken we’re losing Jamie Kellett; in a perfect world we could have kept her forever. But I’m also immensely grateful A) she survived that bombing (because I was scared) and B) she got to leave the team on her own terms and have a lovely goodbye. The scenes with Scott broke my heart, because, man, I don’t get it. I wish we weren’t losing that relationship/history/partnership. Fingers crossed she pops up again someday, somehow.

QUANTUM LEAP: I loved the scene where Addison bluntly told Ben what she had been going on in his absence. For so long she has had to be his pillar of strength, whether they were romantically involved or not, but he has missed so, so much of her life. They probably can never be fully equal given the nature of his leaps, but it’s nice she got that moment.

I know it’s TV, so I don’t actually believe that Magic is going to lose his job, but I’m very curious how/why they get out of this…

FBI: MOST WANTED: I do love that the team was the one who suggested Nina, because it makes sense: She’s an agent, they know her; why not bring in someone they know they like/could handle the job if they had already burned through two agents post-Kristin.

Which, look, I know there was a crime to solve, but…Kristin and Remy?! Can we investigate that? There was certainly fun tension with them in the past, but they never crossed the line as far as we saw. But there were rumors?! (Look, it could be entirely baseless—God knows rumors about women, especially in male-dominated fields, can be vicious. But..it’s an interesting thing to bring up if it was entirely baseless. And Remy didn’t deny it.) I have approximately 897931 questions, writers.

Not to make this all about romance, but I do love how Nina’s addition to the show means MW is inherently more (and forever) tied to the mothership. It’s also bonkers that out of the five active franchises on network TV, this also means three of them have romances spanning between two shows within the universe. It’s a smart way to keep the larger world interconnected, even if/when it’s not mentioned constantly.
