In the sneak peek below, you can get a first glimpse at Tran’s character of Desi Nguyen and one thing feels pretty clear about her on the surface — she’s awesome. She excels out in the field, she’s dangerous, and she stops at nothing to get the job done. She has a very different energy than Jack Dalton, which makes a certain bit of sense given the fact that she’s tasked more to be Mac’s bodyguard than almost anything else. There’s a small shift here where Matty and the team seem to be recognizing Mac for what he is more so than anything else: An asset to be protected at all costs. They’re going to need him for just about every single mission possible; after all, he can do things in a way that almost no one else can.
Superficially, the relationship between Desi and Mac seems reminiscent to Chuck and Sarah from NBC’s oh-so-great Chuck — at least when you take the romance out of the picture. We can’t speak towards anything when it comes to Desi and romance at the moment. She’s going to work with Mac, but she also knows that protecting him is the most important thing. Sometimes, that could lead to situations where the two are at odds. He’s going to think most likely in terms of resolving a case, and she’s going to think more in terms of saving his life.
As for what the main story is going to be on Friday night’s new episode, the Phoenix team is going to be tasked with protecting a very important ATF gun-sniffing dog … and things are going to get haywire, as they often do. In between this dog and Eddie on Hawaii Five-0 (let alone the dogs on Magnum PI), it’s pretty clear that the Peter Lenkov extended universe is a good place to be if you like four-legged friends.
