FBI - Unreasonable Doubt television review

Ghosts from Jubal’s (Jeremy Sisto) past come back to haunt him when the discovery of a serial killer’s dumping ground makes him question the conviction of a man (Ari Fliakos) for a similar crime eight years ago. While Maggie (Missy Peregrym) and OA (Zeeko Zaki) find no holes in the original case, despite their similarities to the current murders, Jubal can’t fight the hunch that he missed something during his heavy drinking days leading him to reach out to his former partner and mistress (Kathleen Munroe).

FBI - Never Trust a Stranger television review

FBI returns with a new season and a new agent in Special Agent Tiffany Wallace (Katherine Renee Turner) but apparently without Ebonee Noel. “Never Trust a Stranger” returns Special Agent Maggie Bell (Missy Peregrym) from her undercover assignment to investigate a mass shooting at a liberal media company by a White Power group which involved a source (Andrew Yackel) of OA (Zeeko Zaki). The first-half of the episode deals mainly with Scola (John Boyd) and Wallace getting off on the wrong foot as new partners and Maggie wondering if OA is too close to his missing source to face hard truths about a kid he’s determined to think the best of (even after he takes seven people hostage to avoid being arrested by the FBI).

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.
