For most of Chicago Justice this season, we’ve seen NBC take a slow-burn approach to some of their storytelling. They’ve made sure that we were properly introduced to the world, and also how it fits in with some of the other editions of the franchise.
Moving into Chicago Justice episode 4 entitled “Judge Not,” we may be starting to see more of a focus surrounding individual characters. Specifically, Monica Barbaro’s Anna Valdez could be at the center of a new case in a way that she certainly did not expect. She’s going to have to find a way to prove that some sudden misconceptions of her are false; luckily, we have a feeling that she will figure out a way to do that just fine. As a matter of fact, she’ll probably be an asset to the case before the story is over.
Synopsis – “When a prominent judge (guest star Douglas Sills) is shot and killed while leaving a bar with Valdez (Monica Barbaro), her integrity is called into question and Stone (Philip Winchester) prohibits her from working the case. But the team learns the judge’s death is connected to a trial where he handed down a lenient sentence to a college rapist.”
One of the things that Chicago Justice is clearly doing right at the moment is that they are not holding back anything at all when it comes to some of big cases that make it difficult for the team to find its footing. College rape is an issue that should be taken seriously, and giving a light sentence to someone found guilty of it is abhorrent. Yet, the old saying goes that “two wrongs don’t make a right,” and there has to be a better way to get your point across than committing murder. In the end, we imagine Stone, Valdez, and everyone else is going to do their part to ensure that they bring the killer of the judge to justice, even while wading in the difficult waters of the verdict that he passed down prior to his death.
