Will Barnes and Charlotte break up on FBI: Most Wanted?
We got another look at Barnes’s life with Charlotte on FBI: Most Wanted. Is their marriage coming to an end?
It’s clear that Charlotte has been doing a lot of thinking. At the end of FBI: Most Wanted Season 3, Episode 6, she made it clear to Barnes that she doesn’t want to take time off after the birth of the baby. This was a shock to Barnes. The last conversation they had, Charlotte was going to stay home for a while.
However, Charlotte has a new job. It’s understandable that she doesn’t want to take time off. However, one thing that is clear is that these two women aren’t really talking to each other. Why would Barnes think a plan had changed if Charlotte hadn’t said anything?
Can Charlotte and Barnes work through this on FBI: Most Wanted?
There is still hope for the two of them. What’s clear is that there’s a lack of communication. That’s a downfall for a lot of couples.
Charlotte could have just been honest as soon as she started realizing she didn’t want to give up her job. She could have sat down with Barnes had had a discussion about how they were going to deal with things. Instead, Charlotte assumed Barnes would have figured out she didn’t want to stop work. Barnes is a good FBI agent but she’s not a mind reader!
At the same time, Barnes could have discussed things with her wife to make sure they were still on the same page. Now that she does know they’re not, she’ll want to think things through. Yes, it hurts when people change their minds, but this isn’t a complete deal breaker in a marriage.
The two women just need to figure things out. For a start, maybe Barnes could take some time off work to stay home. She might talk to Kristen about this in the coming episodes to figure out what to do.
Charlotte and Barnes could also discuss their nanny options. They could hire someone else since their previous nanny left. Or maybe they could have Barnes’s mom deal with it. No, Charlotte doesn’t like her mother-in-law for some good reasons. Barnes needs to talk to her mom about how Charlotte feels. In fact, Charlotte needs to stand up to her mother-in-law.
Don’t rule the two out making things work just yet. However, they do need to start talking to each other.
What do you think Barnes and Charlotte need to do? Can they make their marriage work? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
