Chicago PD tackled a case concerning domestic terrorism and it wasn’t an easy watch following everything that happened in Las Vegas this weekend.
1. Who Runs Intelligence? Burgess!
Burgess is the Beyonce of Intelligence. She’s one of the newer additions to the team but has already accomplished so much and really solidified her spot. This week, she stuck her neck out for Toma, a trainee of her’s who is suspected of terrorism after he goes missing following a street fest bombing. The fact that he’s been googling radical propaganda, communicating with them using a nickname and frequenting radicalized mosques isn’t helping his case. When everyone tries to tell Burgess that maybe she’s mistaken about her friend, she follows her gut. Turns out, he was working the case and trying to stop them when things took a wrong turn and the media blasted his image, crucifying him as a terrorist. He killed himself before they could uncover the truth but those that knew his selfless act hailed him a hero.
2. Voight’s Revenge
If Voight and Emily from Revenge teamed up, people that have wronged them wouldn’t stand a chance. Denny is this season’s antagonist and he really has it out for Voight, who is staying calm, cool and collected. Denny is trying to make things difficult for Voight but his intentions are in the wrong place while Voight is focused on one thing – justice. Justice for his victims and justice for his enemies. And like he tells him, “I don’t run, I wait.” That’s a threat he’ll act on once the right time comes along. And I cannot wait to see that showdown.
3. Burgess’ New Man
We haven’t met Burgess’ new dude but it seems like things are really serious with him. And you can tell, that’s driving Ruzek man. He deserves it of course because he let this wickedly awesome girl slip away. I don’t know if her new man is good to her but I will say, I’m proud of her for walking away and for the first time, putting her career first. Before she was ready to sacrifice anything to be with him and now she’s realized that it’s about her first. We see it in her actions, how she takes to cases and how she carries herself. I wouldn’t be surprised if Burgess was running Intelligence soon! But don’t take it wrong – I’m super excited for the relationship drama to ensue.
With Lindsay gone, we have a lot more screentime for the rest of characters like Halstead and Burgess. Who will the focus be on next? Upton, Antonio, Atwater or Olinsky?
