WILL TRENT went on a MANHUNT this week. Too bad “bad bitch Betty” didn’t come along. She would have stopped the kidnapper in his tracks with her big brown eyes, but then there would not have been much of a chase. 

This episode again had two plot lines going on simultaneously. One concerned Angie (Erika Christensen) as she once more confronts memories from her past. Eighty-one days sober, and she is having a tough time. Her screen times are so expressive and filled with angst. This actress can make viewers feel empathy and being out of control with just a look. Powerful. 

The other story concerned a cop-killing felon and whether or not he was actually guilty. It all fell to Faith (Iantha Richardson.) She is one strong GBI officer, even though her favorite outfit and shoes were ruined. Will (Ramon Rodriguez) was just the icing on the cake this week. But I would love to have one of his hugs. He knows how to be there for his friends. 

WILL TRENT is entertaining and fast-paced. Will sees and feels things others skip over, which adds more depth to his character. I know there are holes in the script, but I do love cop shows that keep delivering more and more to think about each week. It is available to stream on ABC.
