And just like that Vanessa Rojas is in, and Antonio Dawson is out.

Voight and the rest of Intelligence glossed over Antonio’s departure on Chicago PD Season 7 Episode 3 in a truly infuriating manner.

In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, Voight mentioned that Antonio was moving to Puerto Rico to be with his family.

That’s it.

If that sounds wildly out of character, well, that’s because it is.

Antonio’s whole family — his son, daughter, and ex-wife — are all in Chicago.

And his whole life outside of his family was rooted in Intelligence.

You’d think that to overcome addiction, he’d want to be near his support system.

The only good thing is that at least his off-screen exit is consistent with his sister Gabriela Dawson’s (Monica Raymund) exit, who also moved to Puerto Rico when she left Chicago Fire.

Ultimately, the reason Antonio is leaving isn’t what has fans so upset.

It’s that Antonio, a character who has been with the series since its inception, deserved better.

He deserved better from his team, his friends, and from the writers of this series.

    ‘Hey, I think that we(HAVEN’T) heard the last of Antonio’s chacter? Think about it? “Why was Voight “soooo ‘ quick with his answer about where “Antonio” was going and shut-down “ANY ” questions about that was the best for him to be with his family, in Puerto Rico? Something down the road is brewing. and “Voight ” knows and has taken care of the problem-for now! “Hey, People -stay tuned ! I think it’s going to be an explosive season! “Lot’s of guessing and putting the puzzle back together!

      I think that’s a fair assumption. At least I hope. Antonio deserved better.

Chicago PD Review – No Regrets (7×08)

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.

Chicago PD – False Positive (7×06)

Chicago PD False Positive Review

No justice was served on Chicago PD Season 7 Episode 6.

After the weak episode that was Chicago PD Season 7 Episode 5, the series bounced back with a strong episode that tested everyone in Intelligence.

Halstead took the lead on a gruesome and heartbreaking case, and he was determined to solve it by any means necessary.

Along the way, he made a few wrong calls resulting in a pretty dire day for Chicago law enforcement.

By the end, there were no winners.

However, the biggest mistake Intelligence made was trusting a facial recognition software that was still in its beta stages.

The interim Mayor Crawford felt optimistic about the software and convinced Voight’s team to use it to find their suspect but ultimately, it was their call and their poor decision-making that created this mess.

When the software failed to work properly, there was no one to blame other than Voight because he knew better.

Who puts all of their backing behind a device that hasn’t even officially launched?

Sure, the officer developing the software should have given them the rundown of the device’s flaws ahead of time.

The fact that they were trying to identify a dark-skinned African American man using software that repeatedly botched ID’ing dark-skinned African Americans was crucial information that was conveniently left out.

It would have been good to know ahead of time and would have, most likely, changed the course of the whole investigation.

But again, none of that matters because Intelligence should have never let it get that far.

They naively followed a software while putting aside their better judgments.

They refused to use their skills to build a proper case and accepted that Marcus West was the killer.

When West denied any responsibility for the death of two nine-year-old boys, Intelligence attempted to pull a guilty confession from him at all costs by throwing him into County to break him.

I assumed Halstead realized that West was telling the truth.

There was a moment where the two connected and West was so shaken and scared, Halstead should have considered that maybe they nabbed the wrong guy.

Realistically, there is always some evidence against a suspect that they can use to elicit a confession.

Unfortunately, Halstead was too blinded by rage and his desire to pin this on someone that he got the wrong guy killed.

Technology fails often. It should serve as an aid, but it should never replace a case built from the ground up by detectives that are supposed to be the “best in the city.”

The initial crime was brutal. Only a monster could kill two kids in cold blood.

Someone deserved to pay but it shouldn’t have been an innocent man whose only crime was that he was a junkie.
