Magnum PI episode 11 spoilers: Who is the Viper? A Higgins story

Magnum PI episode 4If you have been curious as to when Magnum PI episode 11 was officially going to air on CBS, wonder no further.

Today, CBS confirmed that the reboot will be returning to the air with new episodes when you get around to Monday, January 14. What we’re going to be getting here is a story entitled “Day of the Viper” that is very much when it comes to establishing the Higgins character. We’re going to get a sense in this episode as to precisely what happened in her past, especially when it comes to someone responsible for killing the most important person in her past. We know Higgins to be a tough, formidable person, and what we like about this story in theory is that it’s a chance to see her dive into something a little more raw and vulnerable. It’s going to be painful and, because of that, we’re fairly intrigued to see where things are going to go.

Below, CarterMatt offers up the official Magnum PI episode 11 synopsis with some more news as to what’s coming up:

“Day of the Viper” – Magnum and Higgins are shocked when one of her former MI6 teammates shows up with a fresh gunshot wound and news that “the Viper,” the assassin who killed Higgins’ true love, has surfaced on Oahu. Also, while Magnum’s busy helping Higgins track down the Viper, he asks Rick to take over a case, a task that Rick relishes until it goes sideways, on MAGNUM P.I., Monday, Jan. 14 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

This episode does obviously have a good bit of comedy in it courtesy of the story of Rick, mostly because this is going to test precisely how much he actually knows about Magnum as a person. We feel like this is going to be a really unique story that allows us to actually explore further some of these dynamics, but of course it probably will have some sweet, earnest moments at the same time.

While Magnum PI does remain a show that is, in so many ways, about the cases, we cannot forget in the process that the writers really are intent on putting the characters and their stories front and center. That is incredibly smart, mostly because these are some of the people who we are going to be seeing and watching for many years moving into the future provided the show gets that season 2 renewal or more. (At the moment, we remain at least cautiously optimistic about what’s coming around the bend.)
