If you’re a fan of the dink Wolf series, mainly the Chicago series; this might be a show that for you. While the series premiere got some teeth and interest that makes me want to tune in.
When a bombing at an apartment building goes off that takes many lives, even a child; the FBI team of Agents Maggie Bell and Omar Adom Zidan takes the case. But as their investigation begins, it leads to some twist and turns as their suspects either get killed in another bombing or in jail. Not only does the bombings get connected; but the killings too as their investigation leads to a white supremacist leader, Robert Lawerance.
Just as Lawernce is on a talk show, the team searches for the last bomb that’s about to go off any minute, which was at a prayer event. But with Agent Kristen Chazal’s quick and expert on disabling the bomb; while Bell and Zidan awaited Lawernce to make a phone call to his ‘lawyer.” But what he was doing was making a direct call to activate the bomb, but didn’t
We learn through the episode more about Agent Bell, who’s lost her husband a few years ago as an investigating reporter, as she deals with the after-effects of the bombing that a mother lost her child. But she gets the courage after capturing Lawernce to go to the funeral of the little boy.
It wasn’t the best pilot of the year, but I very much enjoyed watching. The cast plays so well with each other on screen. The story was interesting and kept me on the edge of my seats; like other Wolf series like Chicago PD and SVU. Missy Peregrym is amazing as Agent Bell. And Dallas Roberts kills it, but not like his role in Chicago PD. Overall, I give this episode an 8.5/10.
Not to mention that it’s kind of funny with this fact that it’s been 30 years since dink Wolf and CBS were working on Law & Order but the network passed on it and went to NBC for the next twenty years.
