Have to admit, I think Jess and Tasha are some of the best female characters written for a television show. Why? Because we’re seeing strong, resilient, and empowering females that everyone can relate to. This episode highlights my love for them.
My love for Agent Ross.
And well, the severe dislike for women like Billie.
While I will be the first to understand why it is that these kids shouldn’t trust the FBI, I am glad that we start off with Oren and Liam at the FBI ready to talk to Agent Ross. She tells them that they’ve inspected Liam’s house and there is no dead body there.
Liam is trying to explain that the body was probably moved, but Agent Ross really needs more information and she’s not getting it from anyone. Anyone including Tasha and Ethan who have been brought in.
Tasha and Agent Ross have a convo, where we get to learn more about Tasha. Her Grandmother is on all sorts of watch lists, which I love, because if gives a potential storyline for the future (and I am going to need a future and more seasons). Yet, with this show, I am left with so many things that I don’t expect, including Agent Ross letting the four of them leave the FBI and tells Tasha to call her.
Meanwhile on the plane, Jess is trying to get to Ethan’s phone that is in Casey’s bag. Billie is trying to figure out what is being hidden int he journal.
Now, I would never think to look inside a pencil for anything. But Billie does and there is a needle. A needle that opens up the necklace that Jess has been wearing. A necklace that can guide everyone towards the treasure.
Maybe I am not as observant as I keep telling myself that I am in life, because I don’t see anything that these people do. And yes, I know it’s a TV show, but I have to think would I notice any of these things? The answer is no.
Jess is everyones main focus. She’s trying to get to Casey’s bag, where she hid Ethan’s phone. She has her plan to get help, but she’s going to have to keep the focus off of her to do it. Jess manages to get the phone and set off the SOS signal.
While I wasn’t and still am not sure that a phone can set off an SOS signal from a plane, I am glad that this show thinks of these things.
Back on the ground, Ross is really believing that Lucas was telling the truth so heads back to the Trudsky household to investigate.
I have to admit that at first I didn’t like Agent Ross. She didn’t and doesn’t take anyone seriously and has a habit of not standing up when she should. I get that her job is on the line all the time and it’s really just her wanting to do it well and not be defined by her past. But the thing is – she’s trying so hard, what she’s doing is actually harmful.
I think to a certain point, it’s Ross’ over zealous boss who seems to be pushing her to always towards Jess. He’s so insistent that Jess is up to something that it kinda freaks me out. Like why are you set on this girl taking the fall? And why are you so happy about it?
There is something really fishy about it and I don’t like him.
At Sudsky’s Ross and her man are trying to check Liam’s story, but there is no evidence left behind. It’s only when the idiots come back for the phone that she realizes somethings up. Shootout entails and she’s asked for backup. One creepy dude got away and the other one dies.
The SOS from the plane pings Meena’s phone. I can’t stop laughing at the fact that happens. Why? Because of course it does. Meena’s trying to move on and her friends are trying to make her move on. Yet she doesn’t care and checks on Ethan.
Meena and Ethan make sense. I mean she’s not my favorite, but she makes him better. She may be unsubscribed to the “j-ethan” drama, but also she’s way deep in. It’s because of her that they are able to find Jess.
What I do love about this show is that it shows the connection between friends. Friends who will always be there for you, no matter what. Each one of them brings something unique to the story. Each one of them is a force to be reckoned with.
And they are better together than apart.
Ross is trying to tell her boss that Billie is behind everything. Tasha has hacked the airport cameras and sends the info to Ross.
One thing that you can’t deny about Ross is she picks up on things. She pays attention to the small details once she starts thinking clearly. She figures out that her boss is a part of this entire thing. She makes him handcuff himself to a plane, but I think she forgot the key.
I knew that man was a shady bitch. Ugh, I hate that I was right, but also don’t mind that I was. I feel like Hendricks has been played really shitty. It’s kinda frustrating, because you know the entire time he’s a piece of shit, but we shouldn’t have been able to tell at all.
Ross gets to the swamp and you think that everything is going to be okay. She’s going to save Jess and she’s going to bring Billie down. I legitimately cheered.
But that shady bitch Hendricks showed up and we finally know why he’s so shady.
