I’ve Got The Money Right Here

The kidnapped woman’s name is Carrie Chen. Her voice online was seemingly becoming a threat to powers in China. Her husband is Stephen Beck and the case is now high profile due to his stature as a genetic researcher. The man flew back home as soon as he heard. LaCroix and Gaines went to speak with the man and Gaines seemed suspicious of him. He gestures that Carrie could have been having an affair. Suddenly, he received a text message of a $50K ransom!

The exchange was to take place within 2 hours. The agents immediately got on the phone to get some tagged bills but Stephen told him he had the money right now in the house- as a precaution of the banks going belly up due to the pandemic. They had protocol but Stephen pleaded it would take too long. They argued that the Feds can track the bait money but Stephen pleaded that he would get his wife back as a priority. LaCroix made a decision to use the man’s money.

The team went to the meeting spot in a park. They surveilled a White man who fit the abductor’s description but also noticed two suited Asian men approaching with guns. The Feds identified themselves and the men shot at the team. The FBI took out the threats. The suspect, however, fled in a car and got away!

Time to identify the two dead men. Turns out they snuck into the country on fake Visas. A visit to the Chinese embassy revealed a lot of deep fakes can be created in China.

The team got a tip that compelled them to re-interview Stephen. They went to his home and the door was wide open. They entered and swept the place. It was ransacked, Stephen and the money was missing. Meanwhile, the abductor captured and bound Stephen to unite him with Carrie and he was confronted by a mysterious man


The lab got a hit on blood found at Stephen’s home as he struggled with his captor. The DNA came back to a goon named Rodney Harlock. He didn’t seem to fit as a goon for hire.

Gaines went to speak with her CIA spook friend about genetic altering, she learned some interesting theories that could drive a motive in this case. Gaines also went to speak with the CEO of the company behind embryonic gene splicing in China (as it is illegal in the U.S.) Pulling that thread made the Feds more suspicious of the company and that they used Harlock as an intermediary to distance themselves from any crimes.

Suddenly, the Feds learned Stephen broke into his lab overnight and stole the blood he was researching… altering. They watched surveillance footage to determine what could the scientists be up too. Re-examing the footage closely shows him purposely positioning a laptop towards the security camera. Zooming in revealed a name…

We learn that Stephen was forced to treat a teen boy with his experimental gene correcting blood. This is why his wife was kidnapped– as leverage to make him administer the treatment.

Harlock confronted the mystery man, Frank Zhao, as he killed people just to grab Carrie. He grew paranoid and wasn’t going back to prison so he demanded more money from the man at gunpoint!

Father To Father

The Feds got a hit on Stephen’s location. (The audience wasn’t shown but) Frank killed Harlock. When the team arrived, Gaines checked the pulse of a man lying face down at the front steps and said “It’s Harlock” right before they went into the house. Inside, Frank threatened Stephen to keep his son alive or else! Suddenly, the team closed in on the man and his wife, Jeanney Zhao. Stephen was still working on the boy despite guns drawn. Lacroix lowered his weapon and spoke with Frank… father to father. The boy started to flatline and Frank became more agitated.

LaCroix pleaded with the man, then Jeanney pleaded with him too. Then the boy started to recover, Frank lowered his weapon and was apprehended. Everyone immediately went to Carrie who was in the basement.

When LaCroix got home Tali had the audacity to bark at Sarah for her mischievous behavior. Sarah confronted LaCroix about the rebellious teen. She needed his support when it comes to Tali. He reassured her that he has her back…

6 comments on FBI: Most Wanted Season 3 Episode 4 Recap “Inherited”

  1. Bruce says:

    The last we saw of the kidnapper was when he said “I want more money.” The FBI never found him and the father just left him in the room they were arguing in. We didn’t see him killed!

    1. Sir Anthony says:

      True, the audience didn’t see him getting murdered. But did you see when the team arrived and Gaines check the man’s pulse laying face down at the front steps and said “It’s Harlock” right before they went into the house?

    2. Northcountry says:

      What a messy, convoluted, unsatisfying episode. Let’s wrap it up in a minute or two with an implausible father-to-father talk. Let’s dispatch the two Chinese agents in a 5-second exposition, oh, and try to dispatch the actual murderer with one line (which I actually missed). I suspect the cast was as disappointed as we were with this poorly-written, poorly-directed disaster.

      1. Sir Anthony says:

        I agree, this episode cut some corners!

    3. Rodrigo Guerreiro De Faria says:

      That’s the reason why I log online to find comments. I have no idea what has happened to the kidnaper like you’ve said.

      1. Sir Anthony says:

        Glad you found Celebrity Myxer!
