Things kick off with a bang on the latest episode of Will Trent, “Unable to Locate.” We see Will knocked unconscious in the back of a truck under a tarp, before flashing back one day earlier to Will talking about the high priced food he’s feeding Betty. Of course, he also has to point out that she has some fancy duds on courtesy of Nico (his dog walker). But, while you might think being knocked out in a truck is the bang we’re talking about, it might just be the fact that Will has uncovered garbage from a pregnancy test thanks to Betty.
The fact that he doesn’t even have a chance to really think about what this means before his boss is banging on his door with a case for him and Faith, means that this is going to be one wild ride of an episode. So what is this episode all about?
Will Trent is on the case to stop a neo Nazi group from a planned attack after a container of guns goes missing. And with innocent lives on the line, we know where his priorities lie.
Will Trent is dealing with Neo-Nazis and a dog with a knack for a little trouble
The problem is that there is a lot more to the story than just a normal pregnancy scare. Angie and Will have a history together that includes assault and an abortion during their teen years. While the two confront each other in a police storage room, being a dog parent is not the same as being a parent of a child. These two have a lot that they need to deal with, but Will has a federal case to solve first. And with his mind in other places is it any surprise that he ends up in the back of a truck unconscious?
With Will missing, Angie finds out after coming home to a house with no Will and a Betty looking for her father. Because while Betty may be a dog, she knows something is wrong. And after Angie finds out that Will is missing and possibly injured (we know he is injured), it was interesting to see how Angie took the time to open up to Betty.
Betty might be a dog, but anybody who has ever owned a dog can tell you that they can be the best listeners. And that’s what she needed. She needed to be able to talk to someone, even if that was a dog.
So what exactly did Angie have to say to Betty? It was all about the kind of parent that she would be. It seems like her biggest concern is whether or not she can be a good parent when she’s so negative about herself.
With Will Trent technically out of action, it’s up to Faith to figure out where her partner is. And luckily for Will, Faith is a great GBI agent. He tried to make a stand with a gun that had no bullets and luckily for him his partner had his back and made a very timely appearance with plenty of backup.
Ultimately, Angie and Will never truly discuss what they both realized during this ordeal. It’s a sad realization when you think about the fact that if they would just communicate with each other maybe things would be different. However, Angie is not pregnant. And while Will might be able to admit to his tape recorder that he loves her, and Betty, it doesn’t seem like it’s some thing that he can say to her.
Maybe the only person (or animal), that they can both speak openly to really is Betty.
