'FBI: Most Wanted' Season 2 Episode 3 Preview: Can Jess stop killer who kidnapped woman, murdered her husband?
When Jess realizes there may be a connection to one of his past cases, the need to find the kidnapper becomes personal
The last episode of 'FBI: Most Wanted' Season 2 Episode 2 'Execute' aired on November 24, 2020, and saw the team try to find a hacker who triggered a car crash killing a family of three. He was hunted down at the end right before he almost hacked an airplane in mid-air.
While the case in the episode was nerve-wracking and kept viewers on the edge of their seats, the personal storyline of Hana relating to the hacker and how his parents spoke of him and treated him was a relatable part of the episode. The upcoming Season 2 Episode 3 'Deconflict' airing on Tuesday, December 8, 2020, will see another personal storyline when Jess LaCroix (Julian McMahon) takes on a case that hits a fidgety nerve.
'Deconflict' will see a case where a victim is not only kidnapped but also one that witnesses the murder of her husband. There is also talk of money being hidden in the floor of the couple's home. While that already seems like a ticking goose chase since the woman has to be found safely, it makes it worse when Jess finds out that this case is connected to one of his old cases.
Not to mention, if you're a cop drama junkie, you'd know that the first 48 hours in a kidnapping is crucial. What makes this case interesting is that Jess barely allows personal issues to cloud his judgment on cases — let's not forget the premiere where his father Byron (Terry O’Quinn) and his father's fiancee Marie (Rachel York) made their we're-getting-married announcement. 'Deconflict' though might see Jess uber focused considering the criminal must have rubbed him the wrong way.
Now the question is, can Jess find the killer who kidnapped a woman and murdered her husband? Most likely yes, considering the team has worked on harder cases and this time they have another hand on board — 'Blue Blood's Linda Reagan Amy Carlson debuts in her recurring role as bounty hunter Jackie Ward.
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."
