Who would abandon a baby in a duffel bag? That's what the Intelligence crew had to find out on Chicago PD Season 3 Episode 20.
Below, TV Fanatics Elizabeth Harlow and Stacy Glanzman are joined by super fan Amy Perrin to discuss the case, Roman and Burgess taking the next step, and what Justin is keeping from Voight.
What did you think of the case?
Amy: I thought the case was good, yet sad. I actually suspected that it was the older brother that was responsible, except that he did it on purpose. I was relieved that it was all an accident, but to put a baby in a duffel bag and then leave it out in the cold was cruel.
Elizabeth: It might have been the recent Chicago Med episode, but I suspected that the older brother had done it as well. The parents were way too cagey. I would have liked a more explicit explanation of the charges that bio grandma was facing. What a witch.
Stacy: I thought the case was good as well. It was interesting how many people were involved in what happened, and most of them weren't innocent. I was glad to see the baby survive and back with her birth mom.
How long do you think Roman and Burgess will last?
Amy: Ugh, I hope that they do not last long. I do not think that they have any chemistry, and that Burgess can do a lot better.
Elizabeth: Oh god, I had just managed to erase the memory of them kissing, and now I need a new bucket of brain bleach! Please end this ASAP. Burgess was so much better with Ruzek.
Stacy: I think there's a general consensus on this one. Hopefully it's over by the end of the season.
Is Justin keeping something from Voight? Why didn't he tell him he was in town?
Amy: I imagine that he is keeping something from Voight, but I have no idea what that is. Hopefully we find out before the season finale.
Elizabeth: I think it's pretty likely he (and his baby mama) are hiding something. Justin's always been shady, and that doesn't go away overnight. He's getting his life together, sure, but that's a process, and it's easy to fall back to old habits.
Stacy: I agree again, Justin is hiding something, but I also don't have a guess as to what that is. I'm sure Voight is going to have to get him out of yet another scrape.
Are you looking forward to the backdoor pilot for Chicago Justice, or do you think three shows is enough?
Amy: Before I read this question I had no idea that there was a backdoor pilot for Chicago Justice. I think another Chicago show is overkill, but I know these networks love franchises.
Elizabeth: I'll give it a shot, but honestly, I think it'll be way too easy to fall into the Law & Order trap--in more ways than one. Not only will Justice really have to fight hard to distinguish itself from its New York legal counterparts, but we all remember how over extended the L&O franchise became.
Stacy: I think three is enough, but more than that, courtroom dramas in general don't really interest me. If it gets picked up I'll probably just stick to watching the crossovers.
What was your favorite quote or scene?
Amy: Seeing Voight holding his adorable grandson. We need to see more of that!
Elizabeth: There was so much that was absolutely depressing. I liked how Trudy kept refusing to hear about the baby so as not to ruin her honeymoon high.
Stacy: Those are both good picks, but I'll choose Lindsay getting to arrest the baby's grandmother in the restaurant. That was so satisfying for her.
Make sure you're here to watch Chicago PD Season 3 Episode 21, "Justice."
