FBI season 4 episode 7 is set to follow a case involving a little girl’s kidnapping. However, as the official synopsis and promo suggest, the episode will heavily focus on Maggie too. Maggie will find herself struggling to keep up with the case as her plate gets full. Her sister has returned from rehab, and this will disrupt her concentration from the case. The core focus of the plot, however, is the young girl’s kidnapping. Her parents owe a large debt to the deadly local gang. The FBI team will be helping the parents with their debt and saving the little girl.
The title for episode 7 is “Gone Baby Gone”. Eif Rivera has directed episode 7. Zach Calig is credited with writing the teleplay for the upcoming episode. Let’s now delve into all that episode 7 of FBI will entail. Spoilers for episodes 7 and 6 ahead.
Episode 6 opens with the FBI investigating a case involving an NYPD detective. On his way home from a bar, detective James Gerrard was killed by an anonymous shooter who shot at his back twice and fled the scene. The motive, as it seems, was not a robbery. Another detail about the shooter is that he fled on a bicycle. The episode delves into the administrative struggle and tug-of-war between NYPD and the FBI. NYPD would have normally handled the case, but someone called the FBI when the murder took place. Now there’s an obvious rift between the two factions.
The fact that the victim was one of NYPD’s own only makes the matter more fragile. The cops don’t want the FBI to cover the case. FBI takes over the jurisdiction, and we see a number of tense moments between the cops and the FBI team. Our FBI agents start off the investigation with detective Gerrard’s widow. They interrogate her about any possible problems Gerrard might have had at his work. They also asked if he had any debt or financial problems. She says there was no such thing and remains cordial and cooperative throughout the interrogation. However, the case is not the same for the cops.
Scola & Tiffany Face Hostility from Cops
They are furious at the line of questioning that the FBI took, which they take offense for. Scola and Tiffany have to face hostility from the NYPD cops. While Tiffany understands the hostility since she was a cop herself once, Scola doesn’t. Scola finds it difficult to empathize with the kind of anger and hostility the cops exhibit. Difficult as it is, the case witnesses another major development as the detectives hear about another shooting. Another NYPD detective from the same precinct is the victim this time. However, he was able to evade the shooter without sustaining fatal injuries.
When he recovers, he tells the detectives he didn’t recognize the killer. We learn that the two men were a part of a drug bust involving two hundred thousand dollars that went missing. The detectives circle the drug kingpin, Rafael Alvarez, as the main suspect. However, as they later learn from Alvarez, it wasn’t his money but belonged to the DeMarco brothers. In the end, however, even they are not behind the shootings. The perpetrator turns out to be Ray Rudinsky, the son of Patrick Rudinsky. Patrick was the third detective involved in the corruption along with the two detectives.
The Case Comes to an End & Tiffany Faces A Dilemma
It turns out it was only him who confessed to the crime — taking 10,000 dollars. Consequently, he faced prison with his mouth shut in exchange for his wife’s safety and financial support. Eventually, he gets killed in prison, and before dying, he tells his son about the case. Ray then sets his eyes on the accomplices and decides to exact his revenge for his father. There’s yet another dirty cop — officer Ruiz — who was also a part of the money embezzlement. Ray kidnaps Ruiz, and when Scola and Tiffany confront him, Ray kidnaps Tiffany too.
Later, he goes to kill Ruiz when she opens up about her crime and part in Patrick’s fate. However, Tiffany manages to defend her and thwart Ray’s attack, but in the struggle, Ray dies. Ruiz now doesn’t want to come forward about the case that Ray is dead too. Tiffany digs up the case and finds out incriminating evidence against Dane and Gerrard. She now has the evidence but not the conviction to move ahead with the case. Going against the NYPD makes her hesitant about moving forward.
