This episode did not turn out at all how I was expecting. When Voight’s safe gets taken, you assume he has something inside that he’s not supposed to have. He has gained a reputation for himself for being dirty, but it wasn’t the money or anything illegal he was desperate to get back. It was his wife’s wedding ring. Making Voight a lot more sentimental than he lets on. Or maybe the news of him being a grandfather has brought this new facet out in him.
So if everything was all on the legal side, why keep it in house? It would have made it a lot easier to find the two guys if he would have got the rest of the station involved. While everything was on the up and up, Voight didn’t exactly go by the book on the case. He has his place just out of town where he lives to take his suspects. He scares them into telling him the information. Not sure why feels the need for this, when intelligence has their own interrogation area and it’s pretty scary too.
I’m not sure what the whole point of Roman and Burgess’ little case was. They were just searching for a girl who stole her badge. What was the point of this little storyline? It seemed pointless.
Check out the preview for next week. They go undercover in a very dangerous case:
