Missed episodes 11 and 12 of this season of Chicago PD? Hee’s a recap!
“43rd and Normal”
When the Intelligence Unite investigates a series of robbery and vandalism, Burgess and Ruzek’s relationship and partnership are put to the test.
Ruzek and Burgess’s relationship and partnership is put to the test during an investigation of vandalism that has Ruzk watching out for Burgess. But Burgess doesn’t want his help. As the investigation goes, it turns out to be a son of a former cop that Voight, Ruzek, and Upton stops before he could kill himself.
Meanwhile, Ruzek apologizes to Burgress, who gets an awakening gift from Platt and tells Voight about the pregnancy. Ruzek tries to propose to Burgress that she ended up with “no” and tells him that she’s been down that road and doesn’t want to be married because of a child. The two have found common ground. And it looks like Atwater and his brother are on good terms.
“43rd and Normal” was a very good episode, mainly for Burgress and Ruzek’s story that really carried with strong moments. While Ruzek tries to be there for Burgress whether it’s trying to protect her during a standoff with the suspect and the other propose to her. I do think that Burgress has learned to accept what’s going on and after the last couple of days in this episode it ended her up telling Voight and accepting Ruzek’s help to be there. The writing was so good and the performances as well. Overall, I give this episode an 8.5/10.
“The Devil You Know”
When the Intelligence unit tries to make a drug bust, a twist turns into that the seller happens to be working with the CPD. Here’s a recap!
As a drug bust was about to happen, Upton sees that the person that was exchanging happens to be a cop. Investigating closely, they soon learn that two more are apart of the drug business after planting evidence of drugs from the evidence room that would prove their guilt of selling it.
But who knew that the buyer that was buying happens to be Darris Walker and Voight gets him to help put them away in exchange for his freedom from the CPD. After the deal went totally wrong, both cops dead, Darris walks away free but Upton turns him into other gangs and gets the punishment of being a rat.
“The Devil You Know” was a very good episode and a very good Upton story. Upton gets the revenge for her CI that she’s been wanting since he was made by Darris. Tracy Spiridakos gave a good performance. Michael Beach gives one final good performance as well. Overall, I give this episode an 8/10.
