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
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.
