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.

Antonio

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 TVGuide.com. “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.”

Halstead 

 “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?!

Harry Potter Live Action TV Series Eyed at HBO Max

Blimey! Harry Potter might be coming to HBO Max.

Deadline reports that a live-action TV series based on the world created in the popular novels-turned-movies could be coming to the streamer. 

But don’t pack up your flying car just yet. 

At this time, the streamer is only holding “exploratory conversations,” sources say. 

“There are no Harry Potter series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform,” HBO Max and Warner Bros. said in a statement clearing up the rumors. 

However, that doesn’t mean a spinoff series won’t eventually happen or isn’t a logical move for the franchise. 

We’ve seen Disney embrace lots of success with series’ based on the Star Wars or Marvel franchises. 

Harry Potter, Hermione, and Ron Weasely may have graduated from Hogwarts, but there’s plenty of magical stories within the castle walls just waiting to be told!

Would you be interested in a Harry Potter spinoff? Let us know in the comments below!

Dale Moss Accused of Cheating on ‘The Bachelorette’s Clare Crawley During Engagement

Dale Moss Accused of Cheating on 'The Bachelorette's Clare Crawley During Engagement

With a few notable exceptions (we’re looking at you, Jake Pavelka; ditto, Arie Luyendyk, Jr.), Bachelor Nation couples tend to offer fairly staid reasons for why their relationship wilted.As they’re busily shipping off that Neil Lane diamond and hashing out who gets custody of Chris Harrison in the breakup, the once madly in love duos craft statements about their mutual decision to separate and the deep admiration they still hold for each other. And for a minute there, it appeared Clare Crawley and Dale Moss would be following that script.

Confirming their separation on Instagram Jan. 19, the former NFL athlete shared that it was “the healthiest decision for both of us,” noting they continued to want “the best things for one another.” He doubled down when approached by a reporter while out in New York City hours later, insisting that “Clare and I have a lot of love for each other.” 

The split was just one of those things, he continued, blaming his and the Sacramento-based hairstylist’s packed schedules. “Honestly, we’ve just got a lot going on in our lives right now,” he explained, adding that they had every intention of remaining in each other’s orbits as friends: “Clare and I will be cool.”

Wellllllll, unless that’s some sort of hip new slang, he shouldn’t bet on it. 

Because not 24 hours after the 32-year-old and the franchise’s 16th lead announced the end of their five-month engagement, leaving the door just slightly ajar for a reconciliation, it became clear that their breakup was more Hannah BrownJed Wyatt, less Ben HigginsLauren Bushnell. Put plainly, multiple sources familiar with the situation tell E! News they believe Moss has been cheating on Crawley throughout their engagement.

He and the woman in question (E! News has chosen not to name her at this time) have been in communication since at least late 2019, but Moss insisted to Crawley, 39, that theirs was merely a business relationship. Still, “Clare has always been skeptical,” says one source with knowledge of the circumstance. “She never trusted the friendship and thought it was shady.” And as their nascent romance began to splinter, her worst suspicions were confirmed.

The first source tells E! News the woman “has been talking to her friends about sneaking around with Dale.” As for Crawley, continues the source, “she has seen proof” that whenever Moss was in New York City without her, he was with his other flame. 

One such occasion came in November—not long after Moss’ proposal aired on TV and he brought his bride-to-be home to South Dakota. Spotted enjoying a late-night candlelit dinner at Cipriani Downtown, “It definitely looked like a date,” shared an eyewitness, noting the pair appeared to leave hand-in-hand. “Dale looked really smiley and happy with her. They were laughing and flirting.”

Suffice to say Crawley isn’t the type to subscribe to the it’s-not-cheating-if-you’re-in-a-different-area-code theory. 

Signing on to dole out roses after a memorable stint as Juan Pablo Galavis‘ runner-up, two rounds of Bachelor in Paradiseand a brief Bachelor Winter Games engagement, she was unequivocal about her intentions to find her forever partner. “I am looking for a man that is just like my dad,” she explained during her Good Morning America reveal. “Strong, loving, gentle, compassionate and just a real, genuine, kind man.”

Of utmost importance, she stressed, was someone interested in cozy Friday nights on the couch, someone “who doesn’t want to be in the spotlight.

Basically, someone not like Moss, as she’s come to learn. Because for all of his smooth moves and uncanny ability to, as Crawley put it, “show up for me,” Moss seemed to arrive at Palm Springs’ La Quinta Resort & Club last summer with visions of podcast hosting, modeling work and sponcon dancing in his head, just like others before him.in other words, he was there for the wrong reasons

Now, as multiple insiders familiar with their relationship describe Moss as a “fame-seeker,” the first source notes the signs were there all along: “It is obvious now. Things are making sense to her now. She didn’t want to believe it at first but is now heartbroken.”

Because Crawley had been certain she’d be able to sniff out an imposter, knowing what she would and wouldn’t put up with. But it turns out intuition is powerless in the face of overwhelming chemistry. 

As viewers saw, Crawley believed in her soul that she’d found her guy in Moss from the moment he stepped out of the limo. Sure, she’d done a little Insta digging beforehand and she didn’t hate his chiseled abs and mega-watt smile, but in person there was something else, that inexplicable belief this was meant to be. “I definitely feel like I just met my husband,” she declared breathlessly.

And the more she and Moss bonded over the loss of her father and his mother and, yes, made out, the more certain she was that the rest of her suitors could pack their bags and go home. “We have this connection where it feels like I’ve known him forever,” she explained to producers. “It’s that intangible chemistry that you just can’t make up and you can’t replace.” 

Even better, he seemed just as all-in, telling Crawley, “When we met, I felt love and, like, that’s what I came here for. I’m falling in love with you through this process. I’m not afraid to say that at all. My heart is open and I’m not gonna fight that.” 

Can you really blame a girl for getting swept up in it all? 

By the time she was flashing a shiny new 4.5-carat diamond, Crawley was so far gone, she bristled at the mere suggestion that what they had was anything less than love at first sight.

“How he makes me feel is literally, like, sunbeams out of my heart, like, into the world,” she explained to Harrison at their make-shift After the Final Rose special. “And I know that sounds so stupid, but I just feel it to my core. And whether it took one day or 10 days or two weeks or two years, this man makes me happy.” 

So she dove head first into a future as Mrs. Dale Moss, giddily referring to the South Dakota State alum as “my husband”, announcing her intention to have babies ASAP and dreaming up the perfect way to cement their bond with a collection of island-based elopements. And she brushed off any and all criticism.  

“I’d be lying if I said it’s been easy because I’m human,” she admitted on Good Morning America of people questioning Moss’ commitment. “The things people say without knowing the full truth and without seeing exactly how things really happened and genuinely happened, it just blows my mind in a world right now where there’s so much negativity and hate and hard things going on right now.”

But, actually, the full truth seems to be worse than most suspected. 

Because Crawley couldn’t shake her anxiety that Moss’ friendship wasn’t as platonic as he claimed it to be. “Dale would always reassure Clare that it was nothing serious,” says the source, but “multiple people have told Clare that Dale was parading around NYC with this girl.” Each time, continues the source, “Clare would confront him about his relationship and tried to question him about it, but he would always deny it.”
