Is truth stranger than fiction? That sure seems to be the case for Detective Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and her team on this week’s episode of Motive. “In Plain Sight,” written by Damon Vignale and directed by Andy Mikita, also sees Angie embracing her new relationship with Agent Jack Stoker (Tommy Flanagan, Sons of Anarchy). Elsewhere, Staff Sergeant Oscar Vega (Louis Ferreira) frustrations with his superiors continues.
In order to prepare you for another new episode of Motive, we here at The TV Junkies are dropping a few hints about what viewers can expect. As always, there are no spoilers here, just a few teases to help tide you over until Tuesday night.
Missy Peregrym is back!
If you’re anything like those of us here at The TV Junkies, then you’re sorely missing Rookie Blue on your summer TV schedule. Thankfully, Rookie star Missy Peregrym is back on our screens, at least for this week anyways. She plays a woman who has been looking for years for her younger sister who went missing as a young child. However, we don’t want to spoil everything, so we won’t tell you whether she’s the killer or the victim, only that she’s directly involved in this week’s case.
Stoker is still around
Yes, Agent Jack Stoker is still around this week and it’s something Betty (Lauren Holly) and Det. Lucas (Brendan Penny) aren’t going to let Angie forget. While she may be all about embracing her new relationship with Jack, it turns out her colleagues aren’t above teasing and giving her a bit of a hard time about it.
Other fun guest stars!
Rookie Blue fans aren’t the only ones in for a treat this week as Motive’s guest star game this season continues to be a strong one. Fans of iZombie should also be on the lookout for a familiar face as Aly Michalka (Peyton) guests. However, the fun doesn’t stop there as Ian Tracey (DaVinci’s Inquest, The Romeo Section) swings by Motive this week as a private investigator who may have more to him than meets the eye.
Vega is distracted
With Internal Affairs now after him, Vega is feeling pretty frustrated and distracted this week and it doesn’t take long for Betty to pick up on it. Her advice for dealing with the bureaucracy is to just lay low and play by the rules, but Vega’s not an easy solution kind of guy. The question is, does this investigation have him so fed up that he may be thinking of leaving the police force behind? Could he really do that?
