Did Popo have a plan to escape or did he just get lucky? Either way a major bad guy is back on the streets and he hurt one of their own on his way out. Is Antonio ok? He looked pretty hurt and the other officers looked like they could be dead. Hopefully Voight and his team doesn’t get blamed for Popo’s escape. It wasn’t their idea to work with Popo and they thought it was a very bad idea, and they were right.
Voight thought the mole in his team was Sumners, but apparently it was one of their own, Jin. What was wrong with his father that he could be bribed? I thought the woman running I.A. was shady, but this guy is worse. He’s cheating, or at least cheated on his wife, he wants dirty money and is spying in a unit that seems to be doing really well. He’s leaving his wife for Sumners and because his wife will take him for everything he has, he wants the money off the street for his own pocket. I’m not even sure Voight is keeping any of the money he gets from the street. He may seem dirty in some ways, but he’s the kind of guy I would want protecting my streets. I know he’d keep it safe. I feel like this new guy running I.A. is spinning out of control and it could have serious consequences.
So a guy from Erin’s past has walked back into her life. It’s unclear what role he had in her past life, but it’s clear he’s a criminal of some kind. Erin is such a sophisticated, strong lady, but when he walked in, she was none of those things. Could he pull her back down or will she handle it? I think it might be ok to let Voight or Jay take care of this one. There would be no shame in that.
It doesn’t really surprise me that Ruzek’s fiancee broke up with him. It’s not easy being in a relationship with someone that has a demanding job, especially someone who is a detective. Alvin was right, that it was never going to work. I think when you’re in a job like that, you need someone who understands the demands of the job. Maybe Burgess and him can give it a go now. I was so happy when Atwater stood up for Burgess like that though. He didn’t care that Ruzek was his superior, he was there for his partner. That’s what’s great about this show, the close relationships and how they would do anything to protect each other.
Check out the preview for next week. The team searches for Popo and they won’t let him get away with what he’s done:
