About Last Night...FBI, THE ROOKIE, FBI: INTERNATIONAL, and More - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote


April 3, 2024 by  


“Behind the Veil” – When a bombing at a local restaurant leaves several injured or dead, including a congresswoman and someone close to Isobel, the team races to apprehend the suspect before another explosive goes off, on FBI, Tuesday, April 2 (8:00-9:00 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: Poor Isobel. Poor Maggie. Not an easy episode for either woman.

For Isobel, I can’t imagine how much the guilt is going to weigh on her—both that her young neighbor died, but also she took a professional gamble to get justice for him…and it led to other deaths. One of the things that I really appreciate about FBI is that the characters, even the ones in positions of power, are allowed the (interesting!) grace to be wrong/blinded by their own priorities and have to reckon with that. It doesn’t make Isobel a bad person; it makes her human and complex.

(I also love how the team supported her, from Maggie and OA on the scene to Jubal’s quick comforting squeeze when she got back to the office.)

Maggie…I’m worried about Maggie and Ella. Of course law enforcement officers can be parents, but Maggie just got thrown into this—and with a young girl who just traumatically lost her mother. How will Maggie balance her need to protect Ella with protecting everyone? How will Ella deal with the fear that Maggie won’t come home? I know we’re going to be seeing more of them soon, and I hope we get to explore this in depth more, because it’s going to be important for them both.

Side note: Smart of Scott to note a revolver had only six rounds and Tiff to make their suspect waste them. Excellent partnering.

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

THE ROOKIE: Oh boy, I’m really not loving the Aaron and his therapist subplot. I’m really, really, really glad they acknowledged it would be wildly inappropriate if they pursued something—because, yes, of course, even if so many shows and films ignore that—but now it seems like she’s potentially intentionally gaslighting him for some unknown reason? Sigh.

I’m nervous about the Tim storyline—it does not feel like this is going to end well, either. (Especially having to keep secrets from Lucy. She quasi-gets it, but she’s right to be upset and there’s virtually no chance she won’t eventually get dragged into it.)

A few other thoughts…

  • I don’t want or need Nolan and Bailey to become parents, but it was very sweet seeing them be foster parents together.
  • I appreciate that we’re still seeing Celina learn. Her not clearing the room was an understandable mistake, but it could have spiraled in a very bad way.
  • Aw, always love seeing Malcolm David Kelley.

FBI: INTERNATIONAL: After spending months covering the picket lines last year, I am both impressed and terrified of the AI profile of the young boy they used to trick the kidnapper. (I did love getting to see how the case impacted Tate and her going to see her daughter.)

Also, who can I/we speak to about ending a successful day of work with a meal in Tuscany…?

FBI: MOST WANTED: I’m really glad Remy and Corey cleared the air, because…I’m not sure their living situation was actually helpful or healthy for either of them. I absolutely get Remy’s desire to grasp on to anything left of his brother, but Corey’s an adult. There’s also been a drastic difference in Remy since he reunited with Corey and I hope he can get a little bit of his lightness back.

PASSWORD: Uh…did not love Liza Koshy as a player on this show. (Which is a bummer, because I have enjoyed her elsewhere in the past.)

    I’m happy that the Weakest Link is back and I loved Days of Our Lives for a lot of years but last night’s special episode was painful. Glad the money is going to charity but the other special episodes like the WWE stars had much better game play.

    Ah, I’m bummed to hear that!! I wanted to watch but decided to save it…hate it didn’t go well. (And they led off the season with a weak episode?!)
