That was intense.
What started as a case like any other took a dangerous turn for one of our detectives on Chicago PD Season 3 Episode 11.
Luckily, everyone made it out okay!
Halstead came to the rescue at exactly the right moment, saving Lindsay from a rapist by putting a bullet in his head. He didn't hesitate for a second.
How sweet was it when he made her promise never to go in without back up again? She wasn't about to argue.
Halstead: Promise me one thing. Never go in without back up again.
Halstead: I mean it, like not even to give a parking ticket.
We need to see more of them together. Their relationship hasn't really received much screen time lately, but their time is coming.
I liked the twist that the second victim was actually the perpetrator. Not only was she in on it, but she was the ring leader. It was kind of like a double twist. She deserved that punch to the face from Lindsay.
Lindsay is the best at comforting the victims. Watching her talk to both the father and the daughter were truly heartfelt moments. She knew how much space to give them, and exactly what they needed to hear.
The case felt like it moved really fast, but I really liked how it all played out, and how the pieces were connected. Plus, we got to see our two cop couples go undercover.
How gorgeous did Burgess look in that dress? Ruzek needs to make a grand gesture right about now if he wants to keep her. Set a date. Pick an apartment. DO SOMETHING.
If he doesn't, he might be facing more than just the possibility of losing Burgess, he may have to face the wrath of Eddie. He's already shaking in his boots just knowing Eddie wants to "talk."
Burgess: Our wedding is still this amorphous thing and Platt is like half way to the alter by now.
Ruzek: Are we racing Platt and Mouch now?
The race is on Ruzek. Get it together.
The Eddie story line could be interesting. He's definitely a funny character, but I don't think he's built to stick around too long. He's dipping into some dangerous waters inquiring about becoming a C.I.
I get the feeling that's not going to lead anywhere good. It would be nice if he could get his life together as he said he was going to do, but this is a TV show, so the chances of that happening are pretty slim.
They didn't bring him back to set him free and run off into the sunset with his pen pal. He'll be stirring up some drama.
Platt's father dropping the bombshell that he's broke was not super surprising. I think we all saw where that conversation was heading, but ordering an expensive whiskey knowing you can't pay for it is a pretty rude thing to do. Now Mouch has to pay for that and a wedding?
They could always just have it at the firehouse, it worked well before.
I still put them miles ahead of Burgess and Ruzek in the race to the alter. Platt will get her book back and figure out how to do it on a budget. It might be hard, but at least they're on the same page in their relationship.
It's interesting that the crossover seemed to work better this week than it did last week. The smaller ones are more seamless and feel less forced. They even managed to work in Jimmy in a situation that wasn't just hanging out at Molly's.
Your turn, did this case have you on the edge of your seat? Do you prefer these mini crossovers to the larger ones?
