About Last Night…FBI, THE ROOKIE, FBI: MOST WANTED, and More

April 10, 2024 by  


“Secrets and Lies” – Following their time as foster parents, Bailey has decided she wants to have a baby and forces John to reconsider their decision to not have children. Meanwhile, John and Celina discover a prison escapee whom they fear is out for revenge and race to find her before it is too late. TUESDAY, APRIL 9 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EDT) on ABC. (Disney)

Let’s talk about Tuesday night’s TV!

FBI: Oh my God, Isobel asking Scola whether Tiff should be pulled from the field in front of her?! Ouch. And I wonder how much of this is cumulative for Isobel given what she went through last episode.

I do love that the team was worried about Tiffany—and Katherine Renee Kane was great—and trying to back her play while also toeing the line of not letting her go too far. (Especially Scola.)

I do wonder what Hobbs’ wife rejecting her will do to Tiff’s grief and processing this all. The woman does not owe her anything, obviously, and it’s very possible Tiff lingering was pouring salt on a wound. But what happens to Tiff now if she doesn’t have someone she feels she can talk about Hobbs with? Will she open up to Scola or someone else on the team? Or will all this guilt and grief turn inward, even more so?

THE ROOKIE: Well, that hurt.

Look, I absolutely get if people are really upset about the Chenford breakup—I am, too. But I also (unfortunately) bought it specifically because of how it played out.

This wasn’t a situation where they were fighting about stupid things. This wasn’t a third party. This wasn’t something that is easily, obnoxiously, obviously a thing they could have brushed aside. Tim was not doing well. And as Eric Winter said, the situation snowballed; he didn’t go into that conversation intending for it to end with a breakup, but Tim was clearly not mentally well and in that moment he said the stupid thing out loud. (And he and Melissa O’Neil were fantastic.)

Is that fair to Lucy? Of course not. Her boyfriend just went MIA, finally told her what was going on (after intentionally trying to shut her out for her own good), and now dumped her. It sucks. She should be hurt. (And, honestly, I thought she’d outright reject his attempt at breaking up and make him say it to her face the next day if he actually meant it, but I assume she was too stunned to fight back to that extent.)

But I also don’t for a nanosecond think this means the end of/for Chenford. They love each other. I get that Tim is spiraling, in general, and doesn’t know how to love himself right now, but fingers crossed he can find a (good) therapist who can help him realize he is enough.

That being said: I loved Tim and Angela’s part of the episode. It’s great to see their friendship revisited and how very clear she was she would risk her job to back his play.

(Also, I…sigh to the Bailey and Nolan subplot. I appreciate he said he didn’t want to deprive her of motherhood, but…)

FBI: INTERNATIONAL: What a clever way to get Jubal to Budapest and revive the Vargas case. I really loved how they handled that, but especially the relationship and dynamic between Jubal and Forrester. And we got to see Jubal out in the field!

But I really loved that final scene. Jubal talking about his terrible singing, acknowledging he was coming at things the wrong way…it was very human. He obviously has friends on FBI, but this was a nice beat and a really smart way to continue to keep these shows/world interconnected. More of this, please.

FBI: MOST WANTED: This may seem minor, but it meant so much: I’m so thankful for how many little moments of personal touches we got in this episode. Nina talking to Remy and Barnes about different elements of her past and present was natural…you’d talk with colleagues and friends, especially if you’re on the road together for hours.

And I’m thankful MW brought in Scola just for a couple of personal scenes. Sure, you could have had Nina freaking out about baby Dougie (!) on her own, but seeing it through the perspective of them as a couple and her getting to explain what was going on (and him apologizing/comforting/reassuring her) meant so much.
