“Pain Killer” was yet another powerful episode that what looked to be an active shooter shooting a politician; but there’s a twist as a blast from the past comes to Voight in a shocking way. 

After an event for Ray Price, a shot was fired hitting Price. Voight and team search for the active shooter that takes them to another victim, a judge that Voight knows. Soon, the pieces come together of where the shooter has been in the area to where Voight has been in the last day or two. Could someone be targeting Voight? 
After another shot was fired at the courthouse; Atwater chases the suspect but gets away leaving a backpack with the weapon. That weapon belongs to someone, who had been away for a couple of days but knows the suspect. It was soon that the suspect was a blast from Voight’s past as a kid that he arrested but got him a deal for turning in other bad guys. Voight learns that the kid didn’t get out as they had agreed on;  stayed longer till he was released just a month ago. 
After a call of the shooter taken hostages, Voight tries to go in and reasoned with him. After letting two hostages go, Voight tries everything to make the shooter feel safe, but that wasn’t gonna happen. As soon as the last hostage escapes, Voight tries to reason with him one more time but he walks into the window, where a SWAT sniper shot him. 
This episode was a real thrilling episode that just when you thought that it was a policial shooting; it was of Voight’s past that would come back to haunt him. Jason Beghe gives another strong performance; the character of Voight has really grown and developed this season as a man who’s been suffering a lot but still moves on from it. Overall, I give this episode a 9/10.
