Chicago PD (S05E20) “Saved”

If you thought that someone was going to be rescued in this episode, think again! It holds another meaning and one hell of an hour for one member of the Intelligence Unit.

When Voight meets a girl named Hannah that he remembers from the past. She asked about getting help but wouldn’t tell him what it was about. When she leaves, Voight sees her get abducted by someone and drove off. Voight and Ruzek chase until they hear gun shots at a local bank. There a couple of robbers where there stealing and shooting.

After the crew were gone, they see that it was the same vehicle that took Hannah. The Intelligence Unit work to find the car and find whoever knew Hannah. You can see throughout the episode that Voight was eager to find this girl and to help her. Even if she was later caught on camera holding a gun during an arm robbery.

Voight tells the truth to everyone about Hannah. That she got his card from his wife, who was her school teacher at the time. Explains that his wife thought he could help Hannah, who wasn’t doing well. But after Justin’s death, he didn’t visit her like as usual. And that explained of her chaining to her boyfriend, who’s bad news.

After finding a member of the shooters, they found where Hannah and her boyfriend where located at a car dealership. There it become a stand still. Voight decides to go in and try to talk them down. But it didn’t turn out the way he wanted it. The boyfriend walks with Hannah outside and the cops shoots and kills them.

If that wasn’t enough for Voight,  Al is arrested. Voight is certain that he can get this fix it. And tries to get one of the Assistant  State’s Attorney to help.  But Woods was just a step further to him and wants him to confess to his doings. Voight realizes that things are coming down pretty bad and even powerless to say the less. As he comes home, he views a wall of family photos. He picks up one with him, Al and Erin and just breaks it along with the rest of the photos.

“Saved” goes from the causal start to fast driven, well developed that brings all the emotions from the screen. Whether it’s Voight searching for Hannah to save. Or Voight trying to help Al with the investigation. You would thinking that with Voight would get the job done. But that’s not the case as you seem him become powerless to do anything. The performance from Jason Beghe’s performance was amazing, probably one of the best episodes in a while to watch.

After this episode I don’t know what comes next. Will Voight come clean and help Al out of this serious investigation? I really don’t think that Voight will take things to another level and take out Woods.

Overall, I give this episode a 9/10.
