Voight's old prison buddy Eddie was brought on as a confidential informant on Chicago PD Season 3 Episode 12, but he let his own agenda get in the way of making a new life for himself.
Below, TV Fanatics Elizabeth Harlow and Stacy Glanzman are joined by super fan Honey to discuss Eddie's betrayal, the Burzek break-up, and Mouch and Platt's financial woes.
Burgess returned Ruzek's ring. React!
Honey: Kinda knew that was coming, with all the little things that happened to them through this relationship. I am hoping that they can work this out. If Ruzek really wants to be with her, and I think he does, then he will figure this out quick.
Elizabeth: I like Burgess and Ruzek together, but neither one of them really seemed ready to get married. He may have been dodging setting a date, but she was having way too hard of a time talking to him about it. If you can't openly express your needs to your partner, you probably shouldn't have said yes in the first place. I'm hoping that they can *both* work on their issues, separately and together, and then come out stronger in the end.
Stacy: It needed to be done. I agree that Burgess should have made more of an effort early to voice her feelings, but I think Ruzek hears her loud and clear now. I like them together though, so I hope they work it out.
Will Roman try to make a move now that Burgess is single?
Honey: This is a tough call, he has been after her ever since he arrived at Station 21. But I think he has figured out that Burgess really loves Ruzek and wants this to work. This might just be the straw that broke the camel's back, so to speak, and cause Ruzek to realize what he has standing in front of him.
Elizabeth: Ugh. God I hope not. Although I feel like Burgess would react in a hilariously horrified way and that may make it worth it.
Stacy: I hope not too, but it would not surprise me in the slightest if he does. I think it is more likely he'll try to be the shoulder she cries on and hope that something more develops.
Was Eddie's betrayal too obvious?
Honey: Yes kinda. He was asking too many questions about the money and his cut, and he just didn't seem genuine. Her daughter was right on the target with her suspicions about him. Her mother did have blinders on.
Elizabeth: I didn't see it coming with the first episode, but it was apparent pretty early on that Eddie had a one track mind this week.
Stacy: Yes, I agree that he did not seem genuine, and no one really trusted him. It did not surprise me at all that he tried to take off with the money, but he should have known better than to try to pull one over on Voight.
Has it been too long since we've checked in with Olinsky and Michelle?
Honey: I think that at least once a month we should make it a point to check on these two and possibly see if Olinsky's wife has had a change of heart which, hello! He should have positively looked at that blood test Mouse did for him.
Elizabeth: Yes. And it's also been too long since we've had anything good going on with Antonio. Both are surprising since Antonio's gym had the potential to be another non-workplace meet-up space for characters from all three shows, and Olinsky and Michelle are living with Ruzek which is reminiscent of when half of 51 was living in the same place.
Stacy: Definitely, what is going on with them? Are they still living with Ruzek? It feels like this story has been dropped recently, and we need to get back to it soon.
Will Platt and Mouch get the money for their wedding somehow, or will they do something cheaper/smaller?
Honey: Really not sure about this, somehow. Without seeing it, I think that the Firehouse and Intelligence will get together and maybe surprise them with a really nice wedding. But right now it is up in the air.
Elizabeth: Chicago has started a bit of a thing about having homegrown DIY weddings instead of big to-dos, but Trudy's had that binder for years, so it's hard to tell. Watching Platt get her deposits back was hilarious though--even if it didn't mesh with Mouch's comments on this weeks Fire about not yet picking a date (and once again, continuity fell by the wayside).
Stacy: I was confused by the continuity too, especially since last week Platt was telling her dad the deposits were due, but apparently she already paid this one. Anyway, I think they will end up with the money somehow - mysterious benefactor or a fundraiser or something.
