FBI: Most Wanted ended its second season with a cliffhanger involving five people, three guns… and three gunshots, all off-screen.

Special Agent Jess LaCroix’s (Julian McMahon) new girlfriend Sarah (Jen Landon) had been staying with him and his family after her ex-husband, Hugh (James Carpinello) broke into her house. (And that came after she left him because he hit her and she ended up in the hospital.) But though he had been arrested earlier in the season, he made bail and showed up on Jess’ property — armed! — at the end of the finale.

Sarah immediately locked the doors and sent Jess’ daughter Tali (YaYa Gosselin) to the bathroom to hide. However, Tali instead got one of the guns in the house and insisted Sarah take it. As soon as Jess saw Hugh, he had Special Agent Kenny Crosby (Kellan Lutz) call 9-1-1 before the two grabbed guns and headed inside after him.

But we didn’t see what happened next. All we heard was Sarah pleading with Hugh (“she’s just a kid”), him blaming her (“you did this, Sarah, to me and to you!”), things breaking, Sarah and Tali yelling for Jess, and three gunshots.

Who was shot? We rank the possibilities from least to most likely in the gallery below.

No one

Let’s be realistic: It would be shocking if one of those bullets didn’t hit someone.

Maybe this is more us hoping Tali wasn’t shot but we’re going to optimistically place her low on the list. After all, there’s only so much loss Jess can take and we really don’t want to see him worrying he’s going to lose his daughter when Season 3 begins. We’re also going to assume that Sarah was standing in front of Tali and therefore would take any bullet coming in their direction.

Jess and Hugh already faced off once in Season 2 — when the former tracked the latter down after the break-in at Sarah’s house — and that could have been building to one of them shooting the other. (Hugh even taunted Jess to shoot him.) While he was also behind Crosby as they turned down the hall, it is possible that one of the bullets could have hit him, but for now, we’re going with not likely.

It could turn into him being at the wrong place at the wrong time — he just wanted to look at Jess’ motorcycle! — and he turned down the hall ahead of Jess (last we saw). We can’t help but think he might have taken one of the bullets (but will live).

We can’t help but think that Sarah had to have taken at least one of the bullets, especially if she was protecting Tali. But if she did, will she live or die?

Considering Sarah, Jess, and Crosby all would have had their guns on Hugh, it’s not even a question of whether he was shot or if he survives. Rather, we’re wondering who took the potentially fatal shot. We’re going with Sarah, with Jess a close second.
