Is OA leaving ‘FBI’?

So far, Season 4 has had several plot twists that none of us saw coming — and Episode 5, “Charlotte’s Web,” was no exception. In the episode, a suburban housewife named Charlotte is kidnapped by an unknown assailant and it’s up to the FBI to crack the case before it’s too late.

Viewers learn that Charlotte is living a double life that has gotten her tangled in a messy web of lies. The FBI is able to rule out Charlotte’s husband, Alex, and a lover from her local sex club. But they uncover that the true culprit has killed before — and will likely kill again.

Their evidence reveals that Charlotte's kidnapper is a stalker named Andrew Frasier, who attempts to woo his victims into loving him with mementos. That is if he doesn’t kill them first.

With this in mind, the team heads to Charlotte’s favorite place — the arena where Alex proposed. They find the duo there and Maggie and OA are ultimately able to de-escalate what was a pretty hostile hostage situation.

Did OA and Mona break up?

OA and Mona’s breakup was episodes in the making. Given the fact that their work lives overlap on a regular basis, it would be unrealistic to believe that they could continue their romance without conflicting interests. So does that mean for OA and Maggie? According to Zeeko Zaki and Missy Peregrym, only time will tell.

Zeeko told TV Insider, “[Their relationship has] become the backbone of the show!"

“What’s fun about Season 4 is they work so well together. Ultimately, Maggie and OA have each other’s backs, and they really care about each other,” Missy explained. “It’s very organic [for us to play] because Zeeko and I get along incredibly well.”

You can see OA and Maggie on new episodes of FBI on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
