FBI Season 3 Episode 8 Recap

In the 8th episode of ‘FBI’ season 3, called ‘Walk the Line,’ someone plants a bomb in a car with a message endorsing anti-capitalism. Three people lose their lives. The FBI is called to the scene, and they immediately find a suspect named Nicholas Katz, who identifies as a radical liberal. He had sent a text a few seconds before the bomb was set off.

Katz’s alibi, however, checks out, and he informs the team about a suspicious man in the neighborhood who went running at the time of the explosion. They look for evidence in the security cameras and chance upon Salem. He said he had sold the car to another man and gave them his address. The man also frequently visited a nearby Muslim restaurant which has been under watch for a long time now.

The feds then take Vega’s assistance. Vega Assad, an inside guy who is scared to be deported back to Syria, reluctantly agrees to help. As an informant, he meets with the restaurant owner named Hassan. He confides in Vega about the advanced security system that he has set up in the restaurant. After their conversation, Vega decides to quit working for the FBI. But OA would not let that happen. He relays the information about Hassan’s security system to the FBI, making it seem like a tip from Vega.

The security from those systems is retrieved, and the real bomber is revealed to be a white man who went through a breakdown during the lockdown. His dark hair and beard made people mistake him to be a Muslim. The FBI then finds him. But he refuses to budge and threateningly holds a gun. Stuart then ends up shooting him. On the other hand, OA’s bosses find out about Vega pulling out, and so he is sent home to Syria.
