After Scola (John Boyd) and Nina (Shantel VanSanten) had an episode-opening fight about how much Nina has been over-preparing for any kind of emergency with baby Dougie, she was left to linger in the discomfort on the Tuesday, April 9 episode of FBI: MOST WANTED.

The team was able to track down a mom who was seeking vengeance after her own child was killed by an overdose…and Nina opened up to Barnes (Roxy Sternberg) on the car ride home: She and Scola got into a fight—and now he’s going to be home late. “I feel like he’s avoiding me,” Nina admitted.

Barnes offered her an ear, and Nina acknowledged that Scola thought she was obsessed with Dougie and he was taking over their lives.

“We all want our kids to thrive and be safe in this world, and every parent approaches that differently,” Barnes said, noting her wife was the same way Nina was initially. Barnes gently pointed out the obsession sounded more like harmless overcompensation.

It clicked for Nina, who admitted that not having a mom when she grew up meant she didn’t have an example to emulate. “Just doing the best I can,” she said, self-deprecatingly.

Barnes advised that Scola loved her and they were lucky to have each other—and not to take it for granted.

Later, Nina waited up for Scola and apologized. “You were right,” she said. “I overcompensate. I fill all the spaces where I feel like I’m failing and I feel like I am all the time. I want to be the best mom, I do, and I feel like I suck at it.”

Scola reassured her she doesn’t suck, and Dougie is “so lucky” to have her. He apologized, too, for their fight.

“It was so fun to play a scene where Nina’s apologizing,” Boyd tells Give Me My Remote in the video below. “Of course, Scola apologizes, too, but it was so nice to get an apology from Nina.”

Going forward, now that they’ve been open, “I think that puts them on the same page,” Boyd says. “He has a way in and understands. It was really interesting to have the conversation about how Nina was mothered. What is she compensating for, what is she looking for?”

“Once Scola knows really what she’s struggling with, he’s able to be on board and be helpful,” he continues. “I’m hopeful they’ve gotten through the worst of that.”
