And all good things must come to an end.
Case Summary: After Will Halstead calls in the unit to notify them of yet another overdose and a body’s later found, the unit scatters together to find the dealer. Tay’s sent back to her old unit. Jay gives Mouse his blessing to leave and Platt hands him the cleared record.
Review | Analysis: “A War Zone” was solid, but unsurprisingly one of the more heartbreaking episodes. One of the things Chicago P.D. is best at is showcasing the importance of a person’s agency. And in doing so, it’s always done a riveting job of revealing the depth of adoration our heroes carry in their hearts. However, most importantly it reminded us of the fact that soldiers carry admirably selfless passion within them, and we need to remind ourselves of how vital they are everyday.
This week’s episode was once again a heavy one, but it showcased team work wonderfully.
Episode Summary: It’s a crazy, busy day at the police department and when a frazzled man looking for his daughter can’t get Platt’s attention, he holds Mouse at gunpoint. One of their own in a dangerous situation quickly gets everyone’s attentions and their hunt towards finding the girls works out gloriously as each of them were alive despite being missing for a very long time. And with James Beckett out of prison, Voight’s life is threatened.
Review | Analysis: It was amusing to get another episode focused on parents and their children. And thankfully there were no deaths in this one although the trauma the girls faced made the episode heavy enough. It’s always best when we get backstory on characters no matter if they’re secondary; writers for the series are so great at providing riveting stories. “Actual Physical Violence” was essentially a fantastic set up for what’s to come in the next few weeks for it gave us lots of material to look forward to.
