Let’s talk about Tuesday night’s TV!

FBI: Man, none of the characters really have it easy, but when it rains, it pours for Jubal. A tough case would have been bad enough when his son was going through trouble at school, but to know two girls he thought were dead had actually been alive (and kidnapped) for years and they only found out because one died now? Yikes. Thank goodness they were able to save the other young woman.

I did love Maggie acknowledging it was not his fault, in either regard, even if…well, I wouldn’t believe it if I was Jubal. (Not saying she’s wrong, just that it’s a lot to take on/fair to blame yourself for either.) And Jubal and his son going to therapy? Good for them.

THE FLOOR: Well, this was an episode that proved once again you shouldn’t tempt fate with the show. Gabriel got picked a couple of times in a row, but when he tried to challenge someone, bam, he was out. And then Nick competed in 6 of the 8 battles…and he ended up losing his final one. It’ll make next week’s finale interesting when so many of the players are relatively unknown factors.

FBI: INTERNATIONAL: I can’t quite tell if this is intentional growing pains/keeping us on our toes or accidental. It’s technically our first episode with the new team, and they were largely separated due to Scott being undercover. (And, yeah, Raines is still injured/not there, so maybe it doesn’t totally count, yet, but he was still in the office.) Loved seeing Vo lead, though.

It is interesting (good) that we got another mini-FBI crossover. It makes sense that team would be involved since this was about an MIA agent, but it also feels like a good way to solidify this show within the universe. (Especially now that the mothership and MOST WANTED have the obvious tie of Nina-Scola.)

(I’m also officially worried about Raines and how he might further injure himself in a rush to get back to work sooner.)

THE ROOKIE: I’m sure there’s a lot of angst about Lucy and Tim’s fight, but I actually loved it. (As much as possible as it is to love something like that.) No television couple is going to be perfect or happy all the time, and these people have very different personalities…which means it’s absolutely natural their way of handling a stressful topic isn’t always the same. It doesn’t mean they don’t deeply care about each other and won’t fight like hell for each other. Tim was trying to be supportive of Lucy in any way possible and she wanted someone to fight the voice in her head saying she couldn’t do this. It sucks they couldn’t read each other at the moment! But it doesn’t mean he doesn’t believe in her.

It was maybe one of the worst-kept secrets that Aaron was going to make it through the cliffhanger, but I’m glad they did the time jump and we got him back right away. And I’m really glad he’s going to therapy.

Yeah, I’m more than a little terrified of Monica and her boss. Who the heck are they? And given how much Monica knows about our team…

QUANTUM LEAP: I’m very mad we didn’t have a week between episodes, because I’m sure I was not the only person to put together Jeffrey being Gideon at the end of the penultimate episode, but…since they aired together, it was only a few minutes of OMG, before we jumped into finale insanity.

And the finale was very, very good. As soon as Jenn was killed, I knew they were going to kick the Butterfly Effect into gear, but I’m actually (spoiler alert?) more surprised it won’t spread out beyond that save and Jeffrey now being good. Glad, to be clear, but surprised.

It’s bittersweet watching a show like this, because you know the end may be the end-end. As much as the final moment was a cliffhanger, if this is the end, it’s at least a lovely note to leave on: Ben and Addison leaping together. But, hopefully, there’s more to come.

FBI: MOST WANTED: Ray was so happy?! Obviously there was angst and problems with Ray Sr., too, but Edwin Hodge’s point about making sure that relationship was still primarily good was so clear in the episode. These men are in frequent contact and clearly love each other so much. 

I absolutely loved the scene of the father and son talking about Ray Sr.’s regrets for not doing more when he could; yeah, he didn’t participate in the torture, but his silence was enough to haunt him. It makes sense. And it’s something Ray might be able to take with him in his career…when faced with others doing the wrong thing, what will he do? Also: Hodge and Steven Williams were just great. More of them together, please.
