'FBI: Most Wanted' Season 2 Episode 3 Preview: Who's Jackie Ward? Amy Carlson to debut as recurring bounty hunter
After witnessing her husband's murder, a woman is kidnapped from her home along with a mysterious stash of money hidden in her floor
We're excited for a new episode of CBS's 'FBI: Most Wanted' as the last episode, Season 2 Episode 2 'Execute', aired on November 24, 2020. Now, we're all set for Season 2 Episode 3 'Deconflict' that will air on Tuesday, December 8, 2020. The episode sees Jess get personally attached to a case as the synopsis reveals the team needs to find a criminal that has not only killed a man but also kidnapped his wife. What's makes the episode even more interesting is that Jess realizes that this case may be somehow connected to his previous case and so the pressure is on. That sounds like an exciting episode, but there's more. Amy Carlson will debut in her recurring role as Jackie Ward.
As most fans may remember, Carlson played the role of Linda Reagan in 'Blue Bloods' - he was the nurse that was married to Donnie Wahlberg's Danny. In the new episode of 'FBI: Most Wanted', Carlson will play - according to reports - "tough-as-nails, quick-witted, undaunted" bounty hunter. In an interview with TV Insider, the actress said, "I hope my Blue Bloods fans will tune in; they will be pleasantly surprised."
In the same article, Carlson revealed a bit of her character saying that Ward is a "lone wolf" and will be part of the Fugitive Task Force in 'Deconflict' as she said that when rewards are posted by the FBI for the exchange of felons, a bounty hunter has a "right to be on the scene" - "she wants the money". The actress even revealed that her character will be introduced in an "incredible scene where everyone's got their guns out, looking at each other, when they converge on a guy we're all after. It's tense and exciting".
Showrunner David Hudgins also spoke of Carlson's character to Cinemablend saying, "In the real world, the FBI has to deal with bounty hunters probably more than they’d like to. What’s interesting is, they share the same objective - bringing in fugitives - but they don’t play by the same set of rules. Jackie and Jess have crossed paths before. Jackie starts out as a nemesis, an unwanted distraction, but then the team learns to deal with her and turn her to their advantage. It just doesn’t come easily, which is the fun of the story."
The official synopsis for 'FBI: Most Wanted' Season 2 Episode 3 'Deconflict' reads, "After witnessing her husband's murder, a woman is kidnapped from her home along with a mysterious stash of money hidden in her floor. When Jess realizes there may be a connection to one of his past cases, the need to find the kidnapper becomes personal. Amy Carlson debuts in her recurring role as bounty hunter Jackie Ward."
'FBI: Most Wanted' airs on Tuesdays at 10 pm EST on CBS. You can watch the preview of the upcoming episode below.
