FBI: Most Wanted


Series 1 - Episode 2 Defender



Last week’s case was nicely straightforward with an obvious bad guy: special agent Jess LaCroix (Julian McMahon) and his Fugitive Task Force were tracking down a pill-pushing doctor and cold-blooded murderer. This time it’s a bit more complex.

The episode opens with a desperate single mother, clearly wrung-out by constant legal and personal battles, being pushed to take drastic action when her son is given a harsh sentence for a petty crime. While he can’t condone the deadly rampage she embarks upon, it seems LaCroix can empathise with the woman, because he’s been raising his daughter alone since her mother died in the Afghanistan conflict.


A single mother goes on a deadly rampage at a Public Defender's office. Elsewhere, Jess worries how Tali is handling life without her mother.
