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?!

Walker Recap Season 3 Episode 8 Cry Uncle

The CW is gearing up for its spring TV season—and April showers are clearly going to be bringing back many highly-anticipated shows by fans. 

With plenty of CW originals going on the chopping block last year, two survivors, Walker and All American, finally have airdates for what will likely be their final seasons. 

All American Season 6 will be gracing TV screens on Monday, April 1 at 8/7c (no, this isn’t an April Fools joke), as Walker returns with Season 4 on Wednesday, April 3! 

Two surviving shows that are visibly absent from the lineup, however, are All American: Homecoming and Superman & Lois.

It’s unclear why the shows are being held back, but the hope is that they will now mark the network’s fall TV season.

As for new shows, Walker will be joined by crime drama Sight Unseen starring The Originals‘ Daniel Gillies. 

There’s also no word on a second season for The CW’s Sullivan’s Crossing starring Chad Michael Murray, Scott Patterson and Morgan Kohan, though it seems the series will be debuting in April in Canada, so fingers cross a fall return is possibly stateside. 

Here’s the full lineup for The CW spring 2024:

MONDAY, APRIL 1
8 pm All American (Season 6 premiere)
9 pm Lovers and Liars (series premiere)

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3
8 pm Walker (Season 4 premiere)

It’s Happening—’Wizards of Waverly Place’ Is Getting a Sequel With Selena Gomez

Published

In the words of the Wizards of Waverly Place theme song—yes, please

Deadline exclusively reported that Disney is reviving its hit series, starring Selena Gomez. The network has ordered a pilot for a sequel to the teen show that ran from 2007 to 2012 on Disney Channel.

And there’s definitely something to be more excited about because it’s set to be executive-produced by original stars Gomez and on-screen brother David Henrie.

That’s not all! Gomez will reportedly guest star the pilot episode to reprise her iconic role as Alex Russo, while Henrie will be a series regular in the role of Justin Russo. 

Rounding out the new cast will be Janice LeAnn Brown (Billie), Alkalio Thiele (Roman Russo), and Mimi Gianopulos (Giada) who will play Justin’s wife and kids. 

The series, hailing from the writers and producers of Raven’s Home (another spinoff of an early Disney Channel show, That’s So Raven, that found a second life) Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas, will kick off with a mysterious incident as WizTech, where Justin works after surrendering his wizard powers to lead a human life. 

However, Billie soon arrives as a powerful young wizard seeking training and guidance, forcing Justin to get back to magic to save the Wizard World. 

Henrie confirmed the news on social media, sharing a photo of the pilot episode and captioning it, “The Russo’s are excited to become a part of your family, once again, but we’ve grown 😊 2024, the year magic comes back! 🪄”

Gomez also took to her Instagram Story to share a throwback photo with Henrie, writing, “We’re back.”

It’s unclear if other members of the original cast who played Justin’s parents and brother—Maria Canals-Barrera, David DeLuise, and Jake T. Austin—along with Alex’s bestie Jennifer Stone will reprise their roles. 

But this is something worthy of celebration for all the millennials who grew up with the Russo family!

‘Roswell, New Mexico’ Star Jeanine Mason Shares Sweet Update From Wedding

Roswell, New Mexico Season Premiere Review Steal My Sunshine Season 4 Episode 1

Jeanine Mason is officially off the market!

The Roswell, New Mexico star, who announced her engagement back in March 2023, shared sweet wedding photos from her recent nuptials.

The So You Think You Can Dance champion is said to have married husband Nicholas late last year. 

She shared two intimate photos on Instagram, one of the duo kissing after they seemingly exchanged “I do’s” as their guests looked on, along with a second shot of the two cozying up to each other on the subway.

“So many thank yous to come. But for now, just one to this unbelievable man. I love you husband,” the Upload actress captioned the post, which you can see right here.

Brides got more of the scoop on the newlyweds and their big day, noting that she and Nicholas met on a dating app and later exhaling vows on the stoop of their New York City home, which is also where he proposed. 

“We thought, how fun would it be to bring our favorite people along for a weekend in our lives here in New York City and to fill all our neighborhood spots with our families and friends,” she told the outlet. “We imagined, ‘What would our ideal weekend be with our favorite people?’ and then, ‘How do we want to be married?’ We really threw tradition or answering to any standard out the window.”

With that said, they told guests to go all out with their outfits, telling them to “do the MOST.” 

Nicholas serves a major in the Army Reserves following years of active duty, so he opted for his military dress uniform.

They also used the day as an opportunity to hire as many artists as they possibly could, including a violinist to perform during the ceremony, local artists for illustrations, and florists for flowers and arches.

As for the public transit choice—that’s how everyone got to the reception! 

“We always knew we’d take the subway to the reception but this was the perfect way to start the party,” she said. 

Since Mason is Cuban, there was also plenty of music and dancing on a “large dance floor,” and she even danced the salsa with her dad as it’s a “huge part of our culture and the way we celebrate. I think we made the Cubans proud.”

Her co-stars immediately jumped into the comment section to share their congratulations—warming the hearts of The CW fans all around—as Michael Vlamis wrote “VLAMIS GOT MARRIED!!!!” Tyler Blackburn shared a series of heart emojis, Heather Hemmens wrote “So beautiful! Congrats you two!” and Lily Cowles added, “So gorgeous! Felicitaciones mi amor.”

Congrats to the happy couple—we wish you all the best on this new journey!
