Chicago P.D. Review

Umm wtf happened on last night’s Chicago P.D.?????? Halstead is MARRIED!!! Why, writers? WHY?? I’m still in shock, but before we get in to that, let’s talk a little bit about the case.

So the crew found a young girl tied up in a storage container next to a cabin in the woods. The girl was kidnapped by some guy name Austin, who ended up killing himself after the Intelligence Unit tried to catch him in a car chase. The unit find out there was another man working with him, which they then trace it back to the woman whose husband owned the cabin, but he has been dead for a year. They unit also finds out there is another girl who was kidnapped and trace it back to the old woman’s house. When Ruzek and Atwater find the girl they are locked in the secret room they found the girl in. Voight and the Intelligence unit show up to the old woman’s house and the old woman claims she knows nothing about any secret room or the officers. Voight goes classic Voight on her butt and gets her to speak but cutting her hand. Then we find out the woman was the second person and that she was continuing what her husband started.

There were two sweet moments in last night’s episode. One was when Ruzek hugged Olinsky. I have no clue how Olinsky can go back to work so soon, but sometimes you just need to get your mind off things. It was a sweet moment and I’m glad he appreciated the hug and didn’t go all cold. The other cute moment was at the end when Ruzek called out Burgess for being worried about him when he was trapped in the secret room. He wasn’t going to let her pretend that she still doesn’t have feelings. I hope this means we will be seeing more of the two of them again because we are going to need it after what happened to Linstead last night.

I’m still mad about it. First they have this random girl show up who is Jay’s ex and it turns out they got drunk married in Vegas! WHAT? And Erin knew nothing about this girl, which is really shocking because they live together you would think they would know about each other’s ex’s. So this ex-wife, claims they need to sign the divorce papers again and says she’s getting married to a lawyer. Then we find out, she manipulated Jay to get a drink with her by not bringing the papers and admitting she’s not getting married. Shady. Jay turns her down, but then goes home and basically tells Erin they need a break. Excuse me? I am not about this. I get it’s a shock you are still married, but you love Erin and you should be talking about this with her, not just running away from your problems. You guys have waited so long to be together, now you got to do this? This show thrives on the sexual tension of Jay and Erin. Come on writers. But as proved in the past, this wouldn’t be dramatic television if there aren’t a couple of bumps in the road for our favorite couples, I mean look at Casey and Dawson. Hopefully this means we get to see more of Jay’s back story because he still is quit the mystery. Obviously after tonight.

Why Everyone Should be Watching the “Chicago” Franchise

Tonight NBC premieres their fourth show in the “Chicago” franchise called “Chicago Justice.” Justice revolves around the world State’s Attorney’s office. Fans were able to get a glimpse of the show on Wednesday night when the show premiered its first episode in the epic Chicago cross overs known as “One Chicago.” It is going to be just as good as its counterparts. I think everybody should be watching all the Chicago shows and I’m here to tell you why.

  1. The Men- Naturally I’m going to start off with what is the biggest reason to watch any television show-the eye candy. Okay so maybe it isn’t the biggest reason, but it will get you to keep scrolling once you see pictures of these sexy men. The best part is they are all part of some service that is saving one person or another. It does not get much hotter than that!

2. The Women- Of course with hot men come hot bad ass women! The Chicago series does a great job creating strong women characters who can hold their own in male dominated careers. Chicago Fire dedicated part of a season to Gabby Dawson’s journey to becoming a firefighter and showed the challenges/prejudices women face.

3. The Couples- It wouldn’t be tv show without couples to ship! The Chicago series likes to have their characters date each other from different shows. My favorite couples are the ones who are in the same show: Dawsey and Linstead. I live for any scene involving the couples. There’s something so sexy when the men get protective over their girls. GOALS.

4. The Stories- The Chicago franchise does a great job with balancing the personal lives of the characters and the story lines they want to tell. Most of the calls and cases the characters work on are based on true stories that the writers get from talking to actual firefighters and cops in Chicago.

5. Molly’s Bar- Dawson, Herrmann and Otis purchase a bar and name it Molly’s. The bar is the hot spot for all four shows characters to go and unwind after a long hard days at work. Viewers get to see all the characters from the show interact with each other. It makes the shows seem more real. They even had a couple of Chicago Blackhawks show up at the bar.  Makes me wish I had a neighborhood bar like that to go to!

Trust me. Just watch one of the four shows and you will understand the obsession!
