“Walk The Line” is this week’s episode of FBI. The team works on another high-stakes case and OA’s girlfriend makes an appearance. Tensions rise in this high-stakes game. Let’s get started!
“Walk the Line” – After a bomb leaves three people dead, the team presses a reluctant informant to gather information from his close friends who are under suspicion. Also, OA finds tension in his relationship with his girlfriend, Mona (Yasmine Aker), when they clash on where the informant’s rights lie, on FBI.
“Walk The Line” jumps right into the action with a bombing. The team quickly narrows down a possible suspect, who turns out to just to be an innocent bystander. He claims he saw a Muslim man on the street corner staring at the building before the bombing. When asked why he hadn’t called 911, he said it was no longer 9-11 and you don’t call the police over that. Wallace and Scola told him he should report, but this guy has a point. Just because he was standing there doesn’t mean that he is guilty or has anything to do with it.
Wallace and Scola were trying to point out he was a suspicious man, which you should report to the police. But that is a black and white response. There are so many factors that get innocent people in trouble just because of their race that is uncalled for. Most of the time, they are innocent. Standing on a street corner doesn’t make you guilty.
Now on to this informant business. Vega is having a hard time being an informant against Muslims and the spying he is doing. It’s taking its toll and he feels guilty and like he is a traitor. He just wants to be done. That has to be a hard position to be in. It also looks like OA is having a bit of an identity crisis that Wallace had on “Discord” – when to be loyal to his beliefs and his job. It isn’t always black and white between choices, there is a lot of muddy water.
I love how Maggie wants to step up for OA when she sees the pressure he is under and be the point with Mona. She is a supportive partner and wants to help him in any way she can. OA and Mona are having issues with Mona blaming Vega’s issues specifically on OA, which is uncalled for. While Vega and the FBI had a deal, OA had no part in it. Mona is taking her frustrations that her client is going through on him and it makes me not like her. Maybe I’m just inclined not to like any relationships that OA and Maggie are in. Clearly, they should be together.
The team always pulls together when needed to get the job done, OA was just working a bit of overtime on “Walk The Line”.
