OMG. What to say about this moment.  We had been waiting for it since that first promo picture came out and it didn’t disappoint. Feds and cops butting heads over a case is such a trope, as is tension on the first encounter of a potential romantic pairing. But seeing it applied to two women makes it look like a brand new thing.

I also love how Maggie was genuinely annoyed by being thrown out of the crime scene, but that only made her more determined to work on the case and show her value with that comment about the evidence being handled wrong and showing off her alien knowledge.

As for Alex, even if she tried to hide it I think she was also impressed by it and the fact Maggie didn’t back down easily.
