Spoilers forward for the October 5 episode of FBI: Worldwide on CBS, known as “Secrets and techniques as Weapons.”
FBI: Worldwide could solely be a couple of episodes into its first season, however “Secrets and techniques as Weapons” proved that the most recent FBI present isn’t pulling any punches. Jamie Kellett was shot comparatively early within the episode, and her destiny was unsure for a time whereas Scott Forrester charged forward with investigating the case. Unsurprisingly, he wasn’t at his most affected person with the unhealthy guys this week, particularly because the episode began with him and Kellett in mattress, planning a weekend away along with Forrester’s avowed intention to speak her out of transferring again to New York. By the top of the hour, Kellett decided that fully took me without warning, and raises the query of what comes subsequent.
Worldwide launched Kellett and Forrester’s relationship early on, however wasted no time in throwing in a complication when Kellett bought the information of a giant job alternative that might take her away from the Worldwide Fly Staff based mostly in Europe and again to New York. Forrester was sad on the prospect of dropping her, and introduced that he’d realized from previous errors and meant to try to discuss her out of stepping into “Secrets and techniques as Weapons.” Kellett took that effectively, and was completely happy to plan a weekend away in Portugal with him, however as of the start of the episode, seemingly had no intention to vary her thoughts.
And I absolutely anticipated FBI: Worldwide to proceed mining her job alternative as a supply of drama, at the very least for Forrester and Kellett, by means of the remainder of the primary season, particularly given the timeline of her nonetheless having a 12 months earlier than she’d have to depart. However that’s not the case! When Kellett was shot within the line of obligation (though nonetheless managed to crack the case whereas unconscious because of a quantity she jotted on her hand), she had a change of thoughts. She determined that she needs to remain in Europe with Forrester, and puzzled if they need to proceed conserving their relationship a secret.
As Forrester identified, their state of affairs as brokers in a relationship within the Fly Staff in Europe could be very completely different than it will be in the event that they had been based mostly out of the USA. And truthfully, they by no means appeared to be bending over backwards to maintain their relationship a secret, even when they’ve been roughly discreet. They had been affectionate all through “Secrets and techniques as Weapons” even when not cozied up at one in all their locations, and Forrester meant to remain by her facet within the hospital whereas she recovered.
So now that Kellett is formally staying and the Kellett/Forrester relationship goes robust, these are two sources of drama which have already been resolved after simply three episodes of FBI: Worldwide. What’s subsequent? As a lot as Worldwide is an ensemble present following the complete Fly Staff, Heida Reed’s Kellett could be very a lot the feminine lead, and the Kellett/Forrester relationship appears sure to proceed as a storyline.
Does the early job provide decision imply that Worldwide intends to shift a few of the focus to different characters? Or are there larger and extra dramatic storylines on the way in which for the staff that can make this pale as compared? Will this lead to extra issues for the staff, or has the plot been absolutely wrapped up?
Viewers can solely wait and see. New episodes of FBI: Worldwide air on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS, proper between FBI Season 4 and FBI: Most Wished Season 3. This newest episode featured Alana De La Garza as FBI’s Isobel (who’s in a tough state of affairs herself) in a cameo as Forrester video chatted from throughout the Atlantic (and needed to lie about Kellett being in a relationship), so the mini crossovers are already persevering with throughout the FBI nook of the Dick Wolf universe.
