'Magnum PI' Season 3 Premiere: Higgins owning Robin's Nest means changes, fans say 'don't be bitchy'
With everything going the way it does, we wonder if Higgins's changes to Robin's Nest and Magnum's way of life might sour their relationship
Spoiler for 'Magnum PI' Season 3 Premiere 'Double Jeopardy'
Perhaps in what is an unintended tribute to Alex Trebek, the third season premiere of the 'Magnum PI' reboot on CBS is titled 'Double Jeopardy'. Of course, it is none other than Juliet Higgins (Perdita Weeks) who makes her fortune on the show. With Higgins's visa expired, Higgins is forced to work something out with her immigration lawyer's help. Of course, the titular lead, Thomas Magnum (Jay Hernandez) steps in and works with the elusive Robin Masters. It turns out that Higgins can, in fact, get her visa extended if she owns a business. Luckily, Robin transfers ownership of Robin's Nest to Higgins and while Magnum may have helped her get there, he might regret it.
Before the season began, we were excited to see how their relationship would progress. As one fan put it: "Time for Magnum PI and the continuing courtship between Thomas Magnum and Juliet Higgins!!!! #MagnumPI." Unfortunately, with the new developments, that may not be the case. Another fan tweeted, "It seems like Higgins and Magnum are out of sync just a bit @MagnumPICBS #MagnumPI."

As the season premiere begins, Higgins tells Magnum that while Robin's Nest is in her name, she refuses to take any more money from Robin. As such, she is looking to cut costs, telling Magnum to pay his own rent. On top of that, Higgins has the number plate of the Ferrari changed to include "HIGGINS." She also keeps reminding Magnum that the car belongs to her and when he finds out that others are getting a pay raise, while he objects, Higgins reminds him that he really does not need one.
Now, fans wonder whether Higgins might rename their business, as one fan tweeted, "Should Higgins rename Robin’s Nest? #MagnumPI." Another fan joked, "Okay, but in all seriousness, can Magnum afford rent? @MagnumPICBS #MagnumPI." However, not all fans like this change of events, and one fan wrote, "Higgins don’t be bitchy, as if it wasn’t for Magnum you wouldn’t be staying there or get the deed to the house #MagnumPI."
