FBI drummed up 6.4M viewers in the 9 p.m. hour to become the top program of the night, and FBI: Most Wanted captured the third place spot with 5.89M viewers. That’s Most Wanted‘s largest fast national audience in more than a year, up about 21% from its season average.

The crossover event spanned all three episodes of the franchise on Tuesday, taking viewers on a trip from New York City to Rome and back as Jubal Valentine (Jeremy Sisto), Scott Forrester (Luke Kleintank), and Remy Scott (Dylan McDermott) are on the hunt for terrorists targeting the President of the United States—or it seemed that way at first.

McDermott, Sisto and Kleintank all spoke with Deadline about the months-long production process for the episodes and teased what’s ahead for their characters.
