WILL TRENT’s homicide this week leads viewers on a chase that involves a whistleblower and perhaps tampering with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. It is fast-paced and powerful. 

The writers are also letting us in on Will’s (Ramon Rodriguez) partner, Faith (Iantha Richardson). We learn more about her past and how her choices have made her who she is today. It is good to see her smile and appear to express more emotions than just sarcasm. The episode also centers around trust issues with Betty, the adorable pup, and Nico (Cora Lu Tran). Will’s household is expanding. 

It is hard to explain why I like this police investigative series. It contains well-flushed characters who are more than just their job. They are flawed and troubled, yet their work ethics are astounding. It gives me hope in this very turbulent time of police shootings. It makes me feel safe watching people who care so much to get it right. And when they fail, they keep coming back to try again. This is the kind of humanity I dream about in real life. 

WILL TRENT is available to stream on ABC Television.
