FBI is back again with a new episode this week called “Leverage”. On “Leverage”, a political reporter is kidnapped and held without a ransom demand, the team must dig into her past relationships in order to pin down her assailant’s motive. Also, Isobel’s relationship comes under fire when the case makes a connection to her boyfriend, Ethan.
Everyone keeps asking the question at the beginning of the episode of “why would anyone kidnap a reporter?”, um do they live in a different world than we? I can think of a couple off the top of my head. She could be covering a story they didn’t want her to, gets too close to a source, making waves, and inquires where she shouldn’t be. It’s not a stretch to me that a reporter can be kidnapped for these reasons.
And then the bombshell drops on poor Isobel. Her boyfriend Ethan was spotted with our missing reporter, Adi Ricard. Isobel was certainly blindsided by that, but she was also with him at her apartment. So that begs the question what level is his involvement with her? Which we later learn is about her involvement with a Senator that he works with. I will say this, FBI has been putting the fire under relationships the past couple of episodes. But let’s be honest, the only relationship I’m invested in at this point is ZiBell.
We got our first real suspect from a piece of tape with a fingerprint on it. I swear these people are newbs. If you are planning a kidnapping, one would think you would remember that the tape will have your fingerprints if you don’t wear gloves. He is a Russian that works in real estate. Who just so happens to have been spotted with the Senator that Adi was involved with. How the table turns. Also, Tiffany Wallace kicks ass and I love her.
Oh Ethan, you naive man. Why do you care about a career? Doesn’t he realize he is now an accessory after the fact at the very least? Prison or freedom is not a hard choice to make. At least it shouldn’t be. All the criminals in this episode are making all the rookie mistakes I swear. I’m glad Adi turned out to be ok, but she needs better taste in men.
