Let’s talk about Tuesday night’s TV!

FBI: I’ve said this probably a hundred times this season, but poor Tiffany. I loved the scene where Jubal checked in on her—both because it was kind and she stood up for herself—but it had to absolutely destroy her that her team doubted her multiple times…especially after she had to kill Hakim. It may have been necessary, it may have been self-defense, it may have been justice for Hakim, but she also had to take a life; it was probably at least quasi-traumatizing. And then it was compounded by the fact her colleagues, the people she trusts with her life, didn’t trust her word initially. But I’m so, so glad she (and the team) got closure.

So, uh, Ella’s uncle…is this going to be a fight for Maggie in the future? Or is he interested in her? Intrigued to see what, if anything, they do with that.

THE ROOKIE: Well, that fight sequence was one of the most badass things the show has ever done.

I had kind of hoped the conspiracy would be done-done with this episode—at least with Monica fully captured—but at least most of it has been wrapped up. And I absolutely loved how they seamlessly worked in THE ROOKIE: FEDS characters…if we’re going to see federal agents, why not have people a portion of the audience already loves and is connected to?

I’m not sure if this is the general consensus or I’ll be in the minority on this, but I absolutely loved the final Chenford scene. In a perfect world, would they have gotten back together? Sure. But they were also in the aftermath of a life-or-death trauma, and Lucy deserved the apology she got—and Tim basically vowed to spend the rest of his life earning her back, in whatever way she allowed. It felt like a very beautiful acknowledgment of the fact they weren’t right, yet, but he was going to respect how much she wanted him in her life.

Jason and Oscar being out there…not great!!!

FBI: INTERNATIONAL: I am so, so glad Teri Polo was not playing a recast Angela, which was my suspicion when the casting broke.

I’m torn about how they handled Scott’s exit, though. On one hand, yeah, of course he would have known that was not his mother, but Vo knew just as quickly; it’s not like she claimed she had work done or something. It could have been really, really powerful to see Scott working this case and realizing he was going to have to sacrifice his job—and his life as he knew it—to try and save his mother. Given his importance to the series, to the team, I wish we had gotten some kind of goodbye, even if the team didn’t know they were losing him. (I am at least glad he’s not dead. And we got to see Tank. Though I cannot believe Scott abandoned TANK.)

It’ll be interesting to see how they handle the team next season. Vo has stepped up as the new number 2, but is she going to lead the team now? Will we get a new leader?

THE VOICE: Well, I got wildly emotional with the tribute to the show’s history. I know it was only a year removed from Blake Shelton’s exit, which was also a big celebration, but showing the old performances, the new interviews, etc? It was really, really well done.

I’m so deeply thrilled for Asher HaVon, whose voice is just incredible, and has always been an incredible showman. What a joy to see him win. It’s incredible that this is the first time we’ve had an openly queer winner (given how many contestants have been openly queer on the show; there have been a number, including a winner, who have come out in recent years, post-their tenure on the show), but it’s long overdue.

FBI: MOST WANTED: How unexpected, how delightful, in a show so dark, to end the season with a very extended wedding sequence. It wasn’t just a quick blip, we got multiple scenes! I know this can’t be every episode, but I always appreciate when procedurals take time to break format and give time to the personal element like this.

(Okay, but seriously…anyone else still confused by/suspicious of Ethan? Maybe it’s just lingering suspicion from seeing Michael Raymond-James in a billion other things, but it feels like there’s more there we’re just not seeing yet…)
