FBI - Broken Promises television review

The FBI initially believes a shooting at a climate change rally to be politically motivated, or potentially the work of a jealous ex-boyfriend, until a second seemingly unrelated shooting leaves another victim shot by the same gun. The case gets personal for OA (Zeeko Zaki) when his girlfriend (Yasmine Aker) becomes the shooter’s next target. It also exposes some sharp differences in how each of them view the world. Maggie’s (Missy Peregrym) attention over the episode is split between the case and a career opportunity she’s uncertain about pursuing. A connection between all three shootings leads the FBI to look at a recently-paroled young man with a grudge against all three targets, but the real shooter turns out someone deeply affected by what happened to the boy in prison (which the show attempts to reveal in dramatic fashion although the reveal instead feels awkwardly drawn-out).

FBI - Little Egypt television review

FBI opens its Second Season with an episode that hits close to home for one of its stars (in that way it’s the same as every other episode of the series which somehow makes any crime personal for one of the leads). A bombing in the neighborhood he grew up in sends OA (Zeeko Zaki) and Maggie (Missy Peregrym) on a search for a white supremacist teenager (but that turns out to be only the tip of the iceberg). While responsible for the bombing, the teen was hired for the job by a Muslim looking to target his own people in hopes of raising awareness of hate crimes like the one he suffered not long ago. When the FBI fail to reveal a Muslim was behind the bombing, it also leads two youths (Nik Sadhnani and Paul Karmiryan) to begin looking for their own form of justice.

FBI - What Lies Beneath television review

OA (Zeeko Zaki) has mixed feelings with being put on the protection detail for an Egyptian politician (Nasser Faris) arriving in the United States for a heart transplant. Putting his personal feelings for the man’s policies aside, policies that cost a relative her life, Omar helps prevent one attack on the target from a world-class assassin not realizing that the FBI is playing straight into the killer’s hands who orchestrates a change of venue for the transplant and is prepared to kill an entire hospital full of people in order to complete his mission.

FBI - Apex television review

The focus of the latest episode of FBI is split as Maggie (Missy Peregrym) and OA (Zeeko Zaki) hunt for a serial killer who has drugged, raped, and murdered ten women. While half of the episode focuses on the investigation, the other half centers around the Deputy Mayor of New York (Sandrine Holt) getting in the FBI’s way in order to manufacture another obstacle for the Maggie and company to overcome. Under the premise of not wanting to hurt the city’s tourist economy, coming off like the Mayor in Jaws who thought it was great for vacationers to swim with a killer shark, the unseen Mayor makes (some pretty outrageous) demands of the team that nearly allow the killer to claim another victim.

When a United States Senator’s (Eion Bailey) daughter is kidnapped Agents Maggie Bell (Missy Peregrym) and OA (Zeeko Zaki) lead the FBI in search of the kidnappers who are demanding an $100 million ransom. The investigation isn’t helped by the Senator’s unwillingness to disclose information about an old affair or enemies from his past with grudges. And after a reporter breaks the news, the chance of finding the baby alive drops even more.
