Love and feelings are a weird thing. It compromises you and yet at the same time, holds your head high and motivates you to get through. Even when you aren’t in love, you are driven by emotions, especially when the feelings are brand new.
Agent Vo is experiencing feelings and they are heightened when they man she is seeing is a concert. She goes with him, to meet up with Raines and drop off her man. Her life is committed to the FBI and she wants to be one of the best agents ever. But life is complicated and gets more complicated.
As she and Raines turn to leave one bomb goes off, seconds later another one. Each are knocked on their ass, but they are okay. They get up to help, and she goes to make sure that Lucas is okay.
The festival doesn’t have many leads and the Hungarian police welcome their assistance. Five Americans and seven Hungarians are dead.
The thing about FBI: International is that what scares me is how many connections that they can make, and how everyone can look guilty. Everything that you do can be used against you and you better be aware of that.
Forrester and Jamie aren’t playing around and are on the tail of whomever is doing this. You know what I love about these two and their relationship – is their dramatic pauses. Like when a person delivers a line at the end of a scene, right before commercial break and you’re sitting there, trying not to laugh.
Forester and Jamie, I have grown to love and kinda respect them more than I should. The whole team is intent on solving issues and cracking cases.
They figure out that one of the deliverers of the nitrate has been skimming off the top of the deliveries. He’s got enough ammonium nitrate to make several bombs. They can’t find him, but they can find the ways that he has been radicalized.
See, everything that is being targeted is companies outside of Hungary and this professor has started to tell people that they must make it stop at any cost. The professor is an asshole and he doesn’t want to take responsibility for anything.
He may radicalize people but he’s gonna do his best to keep his hands clean.
The man behind it all – he’d lost his job because they place where he worked was going to automate his job. He blew up a bunch of places for “the greater good” but what is the greater good here? I am so confused. How is killing innocent people sacrificing for the greater good?
What am I missing? I have never been good at politics but I am not angry about that. I am angry that this idiot thinking that it’s okay to sacrifice peoples lives. I’m angry that he’s taking nothing seriously. I am angry that this man is a liar and deserves to be tossed in jail.
But if we know Forrester and his team, they will find a way to address that.
The team is able to figure out where the other man is going, after he beats someone up. He wants to target the heads of the corporation that are automating his jobs. The team is able to stop him and Vo takes his ass down. I cheered for her, because this shit is somewhat personal to her and she doesn’t know how to take it. But what she does know is that she’s not one to back down from anything.
I admire her and her commitment to be a good agent. I think that she’s proving herself over and over again, but I worry that she’s going to close herself off in order to keep herself from having the prospect of loosing someone.
For Vo, seeing the man that she’s falling for, injured, was a wakeup call. She doesn’t know how to balance the job and the relationships.
She’s searching for advice, but I think for everyone it is different. It won’t be the same for everyone. The situations, the feelings, they are all different. I was appreciative that Forrester really didn’t hold back about talking about Jamie and what she means to him.
The terrorist had been caught and Vo was worried about how this whole situation would be remembered and if the terrorist would be what people remembered. She needed to be reminded that people don’t remember the terrorist message – the terrorists are cowards – but they remember those who were lost and the heroes in the situation.
Luckily Forrester and the Hungarian authorities were able to find a way to arrest the professor, which, if we’re being honest his ass deserves to be in jail.
Vo headed out to see Lucas, but when she gets to the hospital, she doesn’t go in the room. She watched him. And you have to wonder, is she going to cut herself off. Has she realized that she can’t do this right now?
