WILL TRENT finally gave viewers a smidge of Angie and Will’s back story while weaving us through a dangerous case involving a Nazi terrorist group. The opening was intense and compelling. This makes me wonder what happens behind the scenes within any Bureau of Investigation. 

The writers shared more insight into Michael’s (Jake McLaughlin) rage and Angie’s (Erika Christensen) self-destructive behavior for the first time. The story then added Will’s (Ramon Rodriguez) unconditional love for Angie and his self-doubts. I say it every week…flawed, compelling characters will keep our interest and keep us returning for more. 

WILL TRENT Is insecure, real, and a fascinating detective. I am on this journey with all of them, no matter where it leads or for how long.

It is available to stream on ABC.
