At the end of last week’s episode of “Chicago PD,” Burgess was finally given a chance to prove herself as a member of Intelligence. Even though it did not happen exactly as she may have thought, she had to take it and dive almost headfirst right into the job.
Did she make Voight and company proud? For the most part, but despite her role, the Hastings case and trying to stop a revenge plot ended up becoming the crux of the episode. In the most intense moment of the entire hour, Lindsay had to protect someone reprehensible by standing in front of the barrel of a gun. Was this a moment of bravery? Sure, but there was something more complicated than that involved here. Maybe it was almost a true dare, an expression of her pain over losing Nadia and having such an unstable life.
You saw in the closing minutes Lindsay spending some time with people who are not exactly the best influences. That should give you a reason to be afraid.
Even in spite of everything that happened in this episode, there was still a little bit of that feeling where the air is let out of the tires. This installment came after one of the most epic “Chicago Fire” episodes to date, and with this not being the finale of this show, it could not live up to that level of drama. We found the first half hour to be almost boring, even though matters did escalate and we got to an exciting back half that created at least some stakes for the team. Grade: B-.
