Chicago PD season 5 premiere title revealed; get ready…

Chicago PD season 5 premiere titleCurious in getting the Chicago PD season 5 premiere title? Well, we’ve got that for you within this very article. Read on for more…

In a new post on Twitter (see below), Marina Squerciati (Kim Burgess) revealed that the first episode is entitled “Reform.” It is being written by new showrunner Rick Eid, and we also have to say that this about as fun of an episode title reveal as you’re going to get. (Marina welcomed a child earlier this year, and she is returning after a brief maternity leave at the end of season 4.)

So what does this title ultimately mean? There are of course a number of different theories that we could throw out there, but we feel like the prevailing idea here is that “Reform” is a sign of great change. Maybe this means that the higher-ups at the police department are starting to tire a little bit of some of Voight’s various shenanigans. Or, it’s also possible that this could be Voight instituting some change of his own. It’s not all that often when you see someone like him want to change his stripes, but he may be starting to realize that there is only so long he’s going to be able to do what he does while spontaneously keeping his job.

Oh, and there is also a reforming of the Intelligence team at the same time. Remember here that Erin Lindsay isn’t going to be a part of the show in the long-term, and there still isn’t any real indication surrounding how the character is going to be written out. Is she really just taking the new job and it’s that simple? If so, we hope that she comes back at some point in order to offer up a little bit of closure between her and Halstead, especially given that they were one of the best couples in the entire One Chicago family.

Beyond what happens to Lindsay, there are still many other important things to come — think for a moment in terms of possible crossovers and some of the complications that are there schedule-wise. You don’t have Chicago Justice at your disposal anymore, and with Chicago Med not premiering until the fall there are certainly creative challenges that come along with figuring out just how much you can use that show. (We’ll have more on that show’s future in due time — rest assured!)

Yesterday, one of the big stories that we had to report on was the arrival of Wendell Pierce of Suits fame to the show for a prominent guest spot. If you head over here, you can read some further news about it without further ado! Hopefully, this is just the beginning in terms of there being some other good Chicago PD news to share.
