Why is 'FBI Most Wanted' Season 2 Episode 4 not airing today? Here's what could happen between Jess and Byron
Since we only saw Jess and Byron go at it on Episode 1 'Rampage' and Episode 3 'Deconflict', we're expecting more of that for sure
Spoilers for 'FBI: Most Wanted'
CBS' 'FBI: Most Wanted' titled 'Deconflict' aired on December 8, 2020, and saw the fugitive task force chase a criminal that was tied to an old case that Jess LaCroix (Julian McMahon) was part of. The old case was a bank heist that saw a pregnant officer get killed as Jess had chased a criminal, something Jess has felt guilty about.
It was an intense episode as we also saw Jess and his father Byron LaCroix (Terry O'Quinn) get into it at the end. Byron admitted that he didn't show up to Jess's late wife's funeral because he was in jail, something Jess had had no idea about at the time. While it looked like father and son having a heart-to-heart initially, it turned sour in the end anyway. Jess does not like the fact that his daughter Tali LaCroix (YaYa Gosselin) is getting close to Byron, because his father had always disappointed him as a kid - Byron is a gambling addict.
Seemingly, we're all waiting for a new episode, but unfortunately, it will not air this week. Hence, the fall release only saw three episodes for Season 2, and reports claim that it could be due to the fact that the new episode wasn't filmed due to the time crunch and production delays because of the Covid-19 pandemic. According to reports since, 'NCIS' is returning on January 5, 2020, and the latest announcement says 'FBI: Most Wanted' will return on January 12, 2021.
Since we only saw Jess and Byron go at it on Episode 1 'Rampage' and Episode 3 'Deconflict', we're expecting more of that for sure. Not to mention, we're also expecting Hanah Gibson (Keisha Castle-Hughes) to hopefully take Jess's advice and contact her biological mother. Also, let's not forget that Jackie Ward is now a "recurring character", so she's sure to be seen as a bounty hunter in more cases than one.
'FBI: Most Wanted' airs on Tuesdays at 10 pm EST on CBS.
