Warning: Major Spoiler Alert
Rumors have floated for weeks that Detective Jo Martinez would gain a new love interest in episode 18 of the ABC freshman series “Forever.” Monday afternoon, “Entertainment Weekly,” reported that the NYPD detective portrayed by Alana De La Garza, will start keeping company with a man described as a wealthy philanthropist, named Isaac Douglas, played by veteran actor Cuba Gooding Jr.
Gooding will get introduced in the eighteenth episode of the season, as a possible murder suspect, but he’s cleared of all wrong-doing. The website states that Gooding will remain with the series in a multi-episode story-arc and become Jo’s boyfriend. There’s no word on how many episodes Gooding will appear on.
Series creator Matt Miller shows with this move, that he’s pulling out all the stops to insure that ABC renew Forever for a second season. While the series has topped the ratings of the three series that held the Tuesday night 10:00 pm slot before them, the network’s held off renewing the show for a second season.
