Would you sell your soul if it meant hurting the people you love?

That question — posed to Antonio on Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 21 — sums up the entire hour.

The idea of guilt, and how much guilt you could live with, was a central theme as it applied to Antonio, Leo Hernandez and Carlos in differing capacities.

All three of them refused to confess their secrets and face the truth because they were protecting something or someone.

Carlos told Antonio that if he told the truth, no matter how good it felt in his soul, Alex Del Toro would kill his brother, Beto.

Leo Hernandez was running away and refusing to be the one to take Kelton down because he was protecting his family.

And Antonio was allowing Voight and Ruzek to look for alternative solutions to his serial killer predicament in order to protect them and his career.

But the thing about secrets and lies is that they have a way of catching up with you sooner or later.

Even when you think the dust has settled, it’ll sneak up on you.

In Carlos’ case, it didn’t matter if he told the cops the truth. Del Toro would come after Beto regardless since he was considered a loose end

Similarly, Antonio’s past finally caught up with him and bubbled to the surface.

Hey, at least we’re seeing some consistency from the writers.

The penultimate episode of Chicago PD was the beginning of the end for Antonio.

And it’s bittersweet given how much we care about the character.

Chicago PD Fall Finale Review – Is [SPOILER] Dead or Alive? (7×09)

Chicago PD Absolution Fall Finale Review

Isn’t it ironic that the last words Jay uttered before getting shot were, “you’re safe.”

Man, Chicago PD Season 7 Episode 9 was an emotional rollercoaster.

It’s only right that the series brings out the big guns for a fall finale, but it was painful to watch Halstead get caught up in the unnecessary drama.

The phrase ‘kindness is weakness’ sums up all of Halstead’s actions. He ignored his better judgment throughout the whole episode and now, his life is hanging in the balance.

Halstead knew better, and yet his guilt over Marcus West consumed him.

He should’ve heeded Upton’s warnings against getting involved with a suspect’s family and simply walked away.

And he never should have told Angela the truth about what happened to Marcus.

At times, it felt as though Halstead was making it worse for himself simply because he thought he deserved it.

Many of you have criticized the show for its lack of continuity in our comments section, myself included, and it seems like the Chicago PD heard us!

Halstead’s guilt forced Chicago PD to acknowledge that these detectives aren’t robots. Wrongfully implicating an innocent man wasn’t something Halstead forgot about and moved on from; it weighed heavy on his conscience.

When the fall finale teased Halstead’s grim situation, I wasn’t concerned because I figured there’s no way Chicago PD would ever get rid of Halstead.

He can’t die, right?

Then I remembered that it wasn’t too long ago that they killed off Al and shipped Antonio off to Puerto Rico, so we can’t rule anything out.

But it’s because of Al and Antonio’s exit that Halstead has to be saved. He’s one of the only original Intelligence members still on the team.

Fans would be furious if he was killed off, and it would further diminish the quality of the show.

Therefore, the cliffhanger isn’t about whether or not Halstead survives, it’s about how they keep Angela quiet.

Based on the promo for Chicago PD Season 7 Episode 10 returning on January 8, 2020, Anglea survives and she’s ready to clear Marcus’ name and take down the police that wronged him, namely Halstead.

And why wouldn’t she? She’s poor, her son is sick, and she deserves it.

She saw an opportunity to not only to do right by Marcus but to get herself out of a bad situation and into a better one.

It’s a no-brainer.

But it’s not ideal for Intelligence, the CPD, the City of Chicago, and the interim Mayor. Is he still an interim or did he just get the gig already? I can’t keep up, but it doesn’t even matter.

The point is, everyone is screwed if this gets out.

It doesn’t just become local cover-up, it becomes a nationwide scandal.

While Halstead is fighting for his life, Voight and co. will have to figure out how to stop Angela from speaking her truth while acknowledging that she deserves to.

Halstead didn’t just implicate himself because of his guilt, he implicated everyone around him.

And his guilt could also jeopardize his career.

With Angela threatening to tell the truth, Voight will likely have to call in a few favors to shut her down, which forces him to admit to Halstead’s actions.

Angela’s personality change after finding out the truth was expected, and I don’t know why Halstead ever believed that getting the truth off of his chest would make things better.

Chicago PD No Regrets Review

Baby Burzek is on board.

Fans of the Burgess and Ruzek relationship can breathe a sigh of relief after Chicago PD Season 7 Episode 8 because the formerly engaged couple has agreed to keep the baby and see where this journey takes them.
Burgess’ shock at finding out she was pregnant was understandable.
She came to Med to deal with a cut on her arm and left with her whole future flipped upside down.
It’s slightly irritating that the baby bombshell was revealed via a teaser at the end of the previous episode because we should have been just as surprised by the news as Burgess was when she found out.
Giving away too much in a teaser ruins the fun!
There was also a missed opportunity by not using one of the Chicago Med characters to deliver the news to Burgess.
Natalie Manning would have been the perfect choice in this situation rather than a random doctor we’ve never seen before who didn’t pick up on the fact that Burgess was not overjoyed with the baby news.
If Burgess had a personal connection to the doctor delivering the news, it would have allowed her to get a little more in-depth about her mindset.
She could have confided in Manning (or anyone else from the Med staff) about her shock, concerns, uncertainty, and more, which would have made for a much more effective scene.
Instead, we were left with Burgess handling all of her emotions internally with the external coming from the distressing case-of-the-week.
It was that case-of-the-week that convinced Burgess she didn’t want to go through with the abortion and wanted to embrace this new, unplanned part of her life.

Chicago PD – Informant (7×07)

Chicago PD Infromant Review

Remember when kids in middle school used to say “snitches get stitches?”

Well, on Chicago PD Season 7 Episode 7 we learned that the stitches part means they can get killed in broad daylight while chatting up a cop.

I have to say, I’ve watched every single episode of Chicago PD to date, and I’ve never been so shaken by a death in my life.

When Cameron was shot in the chest, I jumped out of my seat.

It was obvious that he was going to die by the end of the episode.

Not only is it par for the course for many CI’s, but Cam was a rather overzealous one who ran rampant and ignored Hailey when she urged him to let it go.

Though, I didn’t expect his death to be so tragic and ruthless.

It’s probably important to get this out there now — the first rule of being a CI is to not walk into a police station out freely.

You might as well just ask to get killed.

And when a cop tells you to let it go, you shouldn’t go chasing your leads.

Hailey took Cam’s death personally, and ultimately, the death was on her. She reached out to him knowing how eager he could be about helping.

His blood was, quite literally, on her hands… and face.

The whole episode was heavy for Hailey, who didn’t know how to live with her guilt.

When Voight doesn’t have the answers either, you knew it was serious.

There’s no problem that Voight cannot fix.

Was Darius responsible for Cam’s death? That remains uncertain, though, all signs point to it being the case.

Darius proved he wields a significant amount of power on the streets; he’s capable of anything.

He also knew he had Voight’s protection.

Plus, Cameron was able to ID Darius as a CI after seeing him inside the police station.

But even if Darius was the man behind the kill, it wasn’t worth pursuing.

At the end of the day, Darius helped them get the carfentanil off the street and spared them plenty of overdoses.

Voight could have thrown the case and turned on Darius, but it wouldn’t bring Cameron back.

At least this way, they were doing their job by getting the drugs off the streets.

Darius also held up his end of the bargain after a little nudge from Voight.
