'Magnum PI' Season 3 Premiere: Is Higgins interested in her doctor? Fans happy to see a 'jealous Magnum'
Given that the actor who plays Ethan, Jay Ali, is to recur in Season 3 as Higgins's love interest, we certainly see it is likely that Magnum will get quite jealous
Spoiler for 'Magnum PI' Season 3 Premiere 'Double Jeopardy'
While we may have hoped for Thomas Magnum (Jay Hernandez) and Juliet Higgins (Perdita Weeks) to finally get along with their two-year courtship and move on to the next step as 'Magnum PI' returned for a third season on CBS. The reboot will, however, have us wait for a bit longer as it seems that Higgins has yet another person interested in her.
This week's case was one that confounded them. Magnum and Higgins were tasked with finding a woman's brother, as she claimed. However, as they find him, it turns out that the man does not have a brother and is, in fact, the woman's husband. It turns out that after he committed a crime, his wife took the fall and spent time in prison. The woman -- and her boyfriend -- had been following Magnum and Higgins as they went to find the man. Once the duo finds him, the woman shows up and shoots the man dead. As she turns the gun on Magnum and Higgins, the latter's quick thinking gives them some time to run. However, the woman's boyfriend shoots Higgins and the criminals flee the scene.
Magnum is able to drive Higgins to the hospital in time, but not without hiccups since the woman who shot Higgins had called the police and falsely implicated Magnum as the one who shot her. At the hospital, Magnum learns that Higgins will be okay, giving him a huge relief. However, it seems like Higgins -- who is quite high on the pain meds as we see her enjoy jello, could be quite taken with the doctor himself, named Ethan Shah. Of course, Magnum observes with what we can only call jealousy and fans are excited to see this new side of him.
Fans are anticipating the new couple and commended Higgins. One fan tweeted, "Higgins is flirting with her doctor. Already know these two are gonna become a thing #MagnumPI." Another asked, "So Will Ethan and Higgins become a thing? #MagnumPI." A fan opined, "@PerditaWeeks Can we talk about Higgins good taste?! Doctor Ethan is definitely approved #MagnumPI."
