“Unreasonable Doubt” was very much the definition of the most recent episode of FBI. A series of recent murders looked very similar to a murder committed eight years earlier. The only problem, a man was already in prison for committing that murder.
Our justice system is not without its pitfalls. That could not be more true during “Unreasonable Doubt”. An innocent man was sent to prison and a serial killer walked the streets, continuing to commit murders. All because said innocent man was a giving person and gave the killer a bone marrow transplant when he was diagnosed with Leukemia when he was a child.
This is sad all around. An innocent man was sentenced to prison for eight years for a crime he didn’t commit. Not only that, he was a donor to a dying child who turned out to be the killer. That situation is just tragic and unjust. You can’t help but feel vindicated when he was set free. I applaud Jubal for not giving up on his hunch when everyone was telling him to let it go. That takes courage and makes me love him more.
It just shows that our system is not perfect. Even when it looks like someone is 100% guilty, there are cases when they are 100% innocent. That was the case here. DNA turned out to be right, wrong and the key to finding the real murderer. It also shows that you can’t 100% rely on science for evidence.
THE DREAM TEAM
Let’s get back to Maggie and OA. They obviously have some chemistry and I want them to be together. They work great as partners, but there is longing in OA’s eyes when she mentions she is seeing someone. Perhaps our time will come when they will be a couple and we can ship until our hearts content. Until then, we will join OA in the longing of the current one-sided ship.
