As Rojas deals with past during a case, Upton takes things a bit too far for Voight. Here’s a recap!
When the Intelligence Unit tries to do everything that they can to build a case against the leader of a drug ring; things get dicey for Rojas as one of the sellers happens to be a longtime friend. When Rojas sees footage of her friend selling. Soon she deletes the footage, but tells Upton about it; after learning that all the footages and wires were to be used to build the case.
But Voight learns quick and tells Rojas that when the drug deal goes down that her friend will be arrested too. After arresting him, Rojas tries to get him to help but wouldn’t. The ASA tells Voight and Upton that they don’t have a strong of a case. That leads to Upton getting Rojas’s friend to help with the boss’ car. That lead to Upton witnessing the leader of the drug ring arrested for having the position of drugs in the back of the car. She meets with Voight and talked about how the ASA has enough to take the guy away and to give Roja’s friend a deal.
But it didn’t’ end there as Voight tells Upton that what she did was wrong and that she has been crossing many lines that she couldn’t keep them straight. Of course, Upton tells him she’s fine; so Voight tells her that the New York FBI taskforce is in need of help with a case for a couple of weeks and he decided to send her. While she didn’t like it; things got heated after she tells him that she did what he would have done and that’s not what he wanted her to do. Soon Hailey Upton is heading to New York City.
“Lines” was such a better episode than the previous one. I thought that this was going to be about Rojas episode but twist and make it an Upton episode as well. The scenes of Voight talking to Rojas was very good and meaningful to the character. Also, that scene at the end of Voight and Upton was amazingly good that left me in shock. And yes, Upton will be on the CBS series FBI, which is part of the Dick Wolf universe. That should be good! Overall, I give this episode an 8,5/10.
