“Phantom” – After an employee of the U.S. Army is shot in an industrial park, the team works to track down the killer who reveals a larger plot at play. Meanwhile, Tiffany continues to struggle with the guilt surrounding Hobbs’ death, on FBI, Tuesday, April 9 (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).

On the Tuesday, April 9 episode of FBI, “Phantom,” the series revisits Hobbs’ (Roshawn Franklin) unsolved murder…and the ongoing fallout for Tiffany (Katherine Renee Kane), who was lead on the operation where he was killed. 

“My gosh, it’s such an interesting episode,” John Boyd, who plays Tiff’s partner, Scola, tells Give Me My Remote in the video below. “It’s like navigating how to trust your partner’s instinct, but also have to question them and protect them. It’s like Scola’s trying to protect her from going too far and losing her job. And at the same time treat her as a partner would and listen to her and honor that.”

Jubal (Jeremy Sisto), who previously told Tiff that the bosses wanted her to be more assertive (and also worked with Hobbs regularly in the JOC), will also be sympathetic and empathetic to Tiff’s struggles.

“I think for Tiffany, it’s especially hard because they were close,” Sisto says. “Jubal is aware of that. He’s obviously had his own history with losing someone on the job. And, you know, Hobbs was his guy…She’s taking on a much more aggressive role…he completely understands what Tiffany’s going through and that everyone does that—there are certain cases that you’re going to be more driven.” 

“And that it is your responsibility to try to stay in touch with that,” he continues. “Try to stay as self-aware as possible, so that your own biases don’t come into play and make you act in a way that does not align with the values of the organization and your own personal values.”

Though Tiff may be struggling on-screen, Boyd praises his on-screen partner for her work in “Phantom.” “It’s a really, really great episode,” he gushes. “Katherine’s work is just…I got to see a scene from it, and, I mean, her work is just fabulous in it. We get to see this side of Tiff that’s so cool. And, yeah, it’s sad. It’s really a sad, dark place for an agent to be and I feel like it’s the first time we really see Tiff in that place of [thinking about] the one that got away and how she’s struggled with that so deeply. And that can be—it’s borderline self-destructive. It’s self-destructive to herself and to the team and the case. So, it was really fun to play and I’m excited to see it.”
