FBI - Prey

A young woman stabbed repeatedly and left for dead in the woods leads the FBI to uncover 18 previous victims and a human sex trafficking ring. The survivor's accounts lead FBI Agents Maggie Bell (Missy Peregrym) and OA (Zeeko Zaki) on the hunt for the traffickers and the dozens of other girls, including the victim's sister, who were brought over from the Ukraine with promises of jobs in New York and put to work as prostitutes. Those who spoke out, or broke the rules, ended up in the woods in an unmarked grave.

With a more straightforward premise, some very evil bad guys, "Prey" finally puts all the pieces together for the show's best episode of its young freshman season. Included are some very nice small moments, such as OA's mentioning of his own sisters, Jubal's (Jeremy Sisto) undercover assignment, and a pair of scenes involving Maggie taking on a sociopath first in an empty hallway and later in an interrogation room. She may not get the best of him in their initial confrontation, but she's certainly able to claim victory when it matters and save 50 girls from the traffickers.
