'FBI' Season 4 Episode 13: OA lies for Bashar, fans say 'not mad, just disappointed'
Spoilers for 'FBI' Season 4 Episode 13 'Pride and Prejudice'
'FBI' returns with another gripping episode after a break as the Winter Olympics are finally over and the new episode dealt with a sensitive issue that left Agent Omar (Zeeko Zaki) conflicted.
The synopsis for Episode 13 reads: When a Muslim college student and his younger brother are murdered, the team connects with the outraged imam of OA's former mosque, who insists the victims were wrongly targeted as terrorists. So read on to know what happened what fans of 'FBI' thought of it.
Episode 13 saw two Muslim students being murdered in what was pegged as a hate crime by a White man. But turns out the hunch of the man who proved to be innocent was right as his statement about the two students 3D printing weapons turned out to be true and could lead to potentially devasting incidents as the material isn't detectable. Since it could be used for terror purposes the counter-terrorism squad was also involved in the case along with Special Agent Omar Adom Zidan (OA) from the FBI's side. Rashid Bashar (Piter Marek) and OA investigate the case leading them to seek help from the students' mosques' imam. The case saw Bashar try and get information out from the imam through any means necessary which didn't sit right with OA who even questioned if Bashar was anti-muslim.
Being a Muslim himself, the case was even more of a dilemma for the FBI Agent. Toward the end of the episode, we see SAC Isobel Castille (Alana de la Garza) question them both about what happened since the imam had filed a complaint against Bashar. Confirming whether she should pursue the complaint or not she asked the two about it which saw OA technically lie as he agreed with Bashar's version of events, even though he didn't like it and was conflicted about it. This action by the just Agent had fans shocked as they questioned why would he do such a thing. Many expressed disbelief and disappointment and hoped that his decision wouldn't come to bite him in the back. Here's what they said.
A fan said, "OMG! OA how dare you take up for that sleaze ball?", while another commented, "I wonder if OA will go back to Isobel later and tell her what he truly believes, which is that even if what Bashar did wasn’t against the rules, it still crossed a line. Because we know that he believes in what he does and if he loses that… he’ll be adrift. #FBIFam #FBICBS". A fan tweeted, "I literally wanna smack OA. #FBICBS".
A user also said, "OA is definitely heading to Maggie’s apartment as we speak. The fact that he defended a man who he clearly fully disagrees with is unforgivable. He really needs Maggie to vent to. #FBICBS", while another wondered, "@FBICBSWhy did OA lie!??? I don't understand that?? When you lie you just encourage bad agents like that. Why do LE agents always defend there coworkers bad behavior? #FBICBS". A viewer also tweeted, "I’m not mad OA, just disappointed #FBIFAM #FBICBS".

@zeekozaki was brilliant tonight. This was a tough case for him. It left him caught in the middle of his job and his beliefs. He was a very conflicted man. It showed at the end when he didn’t turn in Bashar. I hope that decision doesn’t haunt him. @FBICBS @WolfEnt #FBICBS— Laura Navins (@laura_navins) February 23, 2022
