It has certainly been easy to feel for some of the officers on “Chicago PD” from time to time, especially when you consider much of everything that they’ve gone through this past season. Apparently, sometimes bad news strikes them even when they are not on the job.
Take, for example, Wednesday night’s new episode when Halstead saw Terry lose his life while working his security job at the dispensary. This one event sent off a chain of emotions that probably showed off a more violent side of the character than we’ve seen. Terry was getting ready to start a family, and he cannot bear the thought of having this child grow up without a father. That’s why he was not exactly too accommodating to those responsible, and it showed off some of that vigilante side of him that he probably gets from Voight.
While it was not altogether easy to see Halstead in such a place, kudos to Jesse Lee Soffer for completely delivering really from start to finish with this performance. That moment where he broke down in tears at the very end of the episode is something we imagine we will remember for some time.
The aftermath of the situation did have some far-reaching consequences. Jay was told by Voight to take a brief medical leave, and he also informed Brianna that he would send her the names of some good cops looking for extra money. After going through this and seeing what happened to Terry, could you really go through with working there any longer?
While in some ways this was a very character-specific episode for the show,w e rather liked that focus. It gave us a point of view, and seeing the attacks and the aftermath through Halstead’s eyes allowed for the entire range of emotions to overwhelm us. Grade: B+.
