Chicago P.D- Finale Spoilers!



Burgess, Atwater and Rozek

Burgess has been doing everything in her power to get into the intelligence and work under Voight. Marina Squerciati who plays Kim Burgess on the hit show talked to Entertainment Weekly about her character’s determination.

“I think that scene in ‘Turn the Light Off’ was really a seminal moment for my character, to see if she could do that, to see if it was within her,” she says. “I don’t think she knows exactly what joining Voight’s unit entails, that there’s a bit of a gray area, and I don’t think Burgess has really delved into that gray area, so I don’t know that she’s going to be OK with everything. It was interesting to see how, in this moment where she has to do something that was out of her character, if she was able to step up. And she was, and I as an actor was excited by that ability as well, by the chance to do that,” she explains. 

Burgess is a fun and joyful character who really just keeps getting kicked around, most recently by Voight when he picked Atwater to join intelligence when a space freed up. To make matters worse, he told Burgess its because of her relationship with Rozek.


“It’s always tricky in any sort of a relationship when one person is more successful than the other, and sometimes you can navigate it well and sometimes you can’t,” she says referring to how her relationship with Atwater will change now that he got the position she was trying for. 

As for her relationship with Rozek– there’s definitely going to be some resentment towards him as he’s the real reason why she didn’t get to be on the intelligence unit. But will she be able to stay away from him? Probably not!

“I kind of wonder whether, if you don’t get your professional life going well, if you’re willing to sacrifice your personal relationship as well. I think yes, she would be bitter, but if Ruzek came to her, I feel like since the biggest thing in her life has just been taken away from her, I don’t know that she could turn him away. That’s my guess,” Squerciati said.

She also admits she’s totally a Rozek/Burgess shipper. They actually have their own name now– Burzek! “I do feel like they are in this together and there’s a certain thing that happens when you work with someone in that high-adrenaline situation that really just bonds you to someone for better and for worse,” she said.

As for Wendy, well no one really thinks her relationship with Adam was very strong. She didn’t realize how much a stressful job would change him and she wasn’t ready to change with him.

Here’s the light at the end of the tunnel. By the end of tonight’s season finale, something works out for Burgess. Whether it be romantic or professional, we haven’t found that out yet.

A lot is focusing on Antonio in this big season finale. He’s had a rough season. First his son was kidnapped and then he was shot.. twice. His wife is ready to have him quit the force and settle down in a happy home life, but obviously Antonio is not feeling that. He lives for his job! His struggle between career and family will be something the show delves into deeply next season.

Lindsay & Voight 

Lindsay will have significant moments in the season finale mainly focusing on the blast from her past, Charlie. She finally confides in Voight for help dealing with him. Meanwhile, we learn something disturbing about Voight’s past! Charlie asks Lindsey for a favor that could potentially ruin her career. “It’s a favor that risks her career, but she doesn’t really have a choice because he’s in possession of a secret from her past that could derail not only her career but her life,” executive producer Matt Olmstead says. “She’s in a horrible situation.” This will also coincide with another return from Lindsey’s past; Nadiya. Yikes, those two characters meeting would be a disaster! 

Voight and Jin

Voight also finds out that Jin was the actual mole/rat and well, he probably doesn’t take it very well. Soffer admitted that Jin’s betrayal has a huge affect on the whole unit.“I think it’s almost like Meet the Parents. It’s like, you’re in the circle of trust until you’re not, and if you’re not in the circle of trust, then [it’s] not good for you.”

An unexpected death

What can you really expect from a show that killed off one of its main characters in the first episode? The drama will end the finale with another fatality as a result of Jin’s secret betrayal meetings with Stillwell. Hmm. Stillwell has been threatening Jin’s father if he doesn’t co-operate, but why would we be distraught about a character we don’t even know dying? Or does Jin himself die?

“It hits critical mass in the finale and one of the characters involved in all this dies,” Olmsted told “Not only do you have an unexpected death in the finale, you know who the suspect is — you know who did it. So there’s a major bomb that drops at the end of the episode which is going to have big ramifications going forward into Season 2. That whole story line hits a shattering climax.”

Everyone is a little shaken up by the death, but it hits Voight the hardest.

“[It impacts] the game that Voight’s playing a little bit in terms of giving internal affairs a little bit of what they want. But was he a dirty cop? Is he a dirty cop? Will he continue to be a dirty cop? Was he ever?” Olmstead says. “It has ramifications because it takes Voight out of his comfort zone — [it’s] the one thing in his life and his business that he doesn’t have full control over.”


 “In our finale, it’s really just about our team and our unit,” Jesse Lee Soffer told Entertainment Weekly. “And something so surprising happens, we didn’t even see it coming when we opened the script.

Apparently, a lot has to do with Lindsay’s backstory and shady Charlie. “Lindsay gets into a lot of trouble. Charlie might be deeply involved. He might have information that can incriminate her,” Soffer teased. Like what? Ratting her out to the CPD? Letting everyone know she was once a druggie? What could it be? It’s difficult to speculate since we’ve never really gotten a deep insight into her past. 

So how does Halstead play into this? “I think he ends up making some decisions about what kind of cop he is or what kind of cop he wants to be. He decides where his boundaries are a little bit, where his morals lie, and I think he realizes that he’s maybe not willing to do certain things but he’s capable of allowing things to happen for the sake of the greater good. It’s like you might have to kill one guy to save 100. Morally, how do you feel about that? And every character on the show is going to have a different feeling,” Soffer explained. 

While he doesn’t say that the reason he helps Lindsey has anything to do with romance, we are sure it’s going to lead there eventually. He did promise that fans would get so Linstead scenes! As for Charlie, well there might be a show-down/conflict just waiting to happen.

“He definitely gets pulled in, definitely has to test his boundaries and figure out what he’s willing to do and how far he’s willing to go to help his partner,” he said. 


Advice for the finale 

“[The finale] is very sticky, and then there’s a really big cliffhanger at the end. Something crazy happens. You’re not going to see it coming, and it’ll be a really good segue into season 2.” So make sure you pay attention to the last 60-seconds folks! In such a high-stakes show, with people playing dirty on the streets, death and foul play is inevitable. So now, whose excited for tonight?!

For those who need a bit of a refresher, there’s plenty of drama that we’re going to dive right into. At the end of season 2, it was revealed that Bill is Isaac’s father (a bombshell revelation if I’m being honest), Noreen gave birth to her daughter and decided to stay in Serenity, Dana Sue decided to give Ronnie another shot, Helen suffered a miscarriage before cozying up to Erik and getting proposed to by true love Ryan, and finally, a bump in the road for Maddie and Cal’s relationship following his angry outburst.

When Is Season 3 of ‘Ginny and Georgia’ Coming Out?



When Will Season 3 of Ginny and Georgia Premiere

Ginny & Georgia centers on the heartwarming yet extremely complicated bond between a mother and her daughter after they put down roots in a New England town. 

With so many compelling storylines and incredible characters of all ages, it’s no wonder that the coming-of-age drama has become a fan favorite among Netflix audiences. 

And that’s why fans can get excited as the streaming giant renewed the series for two additional seasons—yes, that’s right, season 3 and 4 are officially happening. 

The cast of the series took to Instagram to announce the good news:

The second season of Ginny & Georgia premiered on Jan. 5, 2023, which means that a third season is likely far off, especially considering Brianne Howey, who plays Georgia, just announced her first pregnancy, which will possibly delay filming.

As for a premiere date, well, there isn’t one just yet. With the writers’ strike ongoing, it may be a bit before production begins so it’s difficult to come up with a date for new episodes. The season could likely arrive in February 2024 if we’re looking at the previous premieres for both seasons 1 and 2, which both debuted at the start of 2021 and 2023, respectively.

But with Howey’s pregnancy thrown into the mix and the writers’ strike, that could delay things a bit, and it wouldn’t be the worst thing if the series returned during the summer when there’s a lull in content and fans are seeking out something to binge-watch and get invested in.

ABC Fall 2023 Schedule Takes a Hit Due to Writers Strike



Abbott Elementary Recap Season 2 Episode 18 Teacher appreciation

If you’re a fan of ABC’s scripted shows, well, we’ve got some bad news for you. 

In light of the ongoing writers’ strike, the Alphabet network unveiled a fall 2023-2024 lineup that some might describe as foolproof and a sign of the times.

The upcoming fall programming will lean heavily into the reality TV show realm and unscripted fare, which isn’t exactly competitive enough against the other major networks.

In fact, the only scripted series on the lineup is Abbott Elementary, but again, keep those hopes at bay, because all the episodes that will be airing are labeled as “reruns.” 

In addition to Dancing with the Stars, fans can look forward to plenty of drama with Bachelor in Paradise and the series premiere of The Golden Bachelor—a dating show for seniors! 

Fan favorite shows that have already been renewed like The Rookie, Grey’s Anatomy and The Conners are all being held until midseason as production is pending the duration of the writer’s strike.

Other shows held for midseason include The Good Doctor, 9-1-1, new episodes of Abbott Elementary, Not Dead Yet, Station 19, Will Trent, and a new series titled High Potential.

As for Big Sky, The Company You Keep, and Alaska Daily, they’ve all been axed by the network. You can see a running list of renewed/canceled shows right here!
