WILL TRENT - ÒPterodactyls Can FlyÓ - A trailer park massacre leaves a young boy without his family; and Will, strongly opposed to leaving him, becomes his temporary guardian. Meanwhile, Faith receives a visit from her mother, and Angie spirals from incidents of her past. TUESDAY, MARCH 28 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. (ABC/Danny Delgado) CALLAN BARRY, RAMîN RODRêGUEZ

WILL TRENT showcased one of their most touching and empathetic episodes. It shared the softer, vulnerable Will (Ramon Rodriguez), and it gave viewers even more insight into his broken childhood. And his “mini-me” was too cute for words. Maybe more chicken nuggets would help. 

A cop series rarely allows audiences in so deeply. The writers are not afraid to paint a very human picture to the people working at the GBI or within the local police department. Kudos to them. They are giving the gift of real, authentic people to fans. It is working. They allow us to see how broken the system is and what simple humanitarian steps can be implemented to make it stronger. This is the strength of WILL TRENT. Smart people are just doing their best. 

Angie (Erika Christensen) is in a very dark place. I am rooting for her to make a clean getaway, but anything is possible without Will at her side. I hope she can. I hope she sees how much she is loved. Strong believable acting moments are punching everyone in the gut. 

WILL TRENT is a passionate drama that cares about the well-being of its ensemble and the real world. It tugs at your heart even when they are chasing some bad guys. It makes me lean into the action and revelations. Did I mention before I am hooked? 

WILL TRENT is available to stream on ABC.
