Whoa . . . what a winter finale!
I didn’t anticipate any of that to occur nor did I feel level-headed Antonio would let issues get so out of hand.
I suppose it is true what they are saying — you by no means actually know somebody.
Admittedly, it has been a tumultuous season, however Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 9 could have been the one to show it throughout.
Regardless of the horrible occasions that transpired, I am feeling optimistic concerning the present’s future on the subject of compelling storylines even when they proceed down a darkish and depressing path.
Antonio has made a serious mess not just for himself but additionally for his daughter and his squad.
It is one factor to mess up your life and profession, nevertheless it’s one other factor to get your loved ones put within the line of fireside.
In actual fact, it is disappointing on Antonio’s half.
You selected this job over your loved ones. I hope it was price it.
What number of occasions are his children going to get kidnapped due to him?
He completely deserved the slap that he received from his ex-wife! I’d take custody of these children and restrict his visitation till he received his act collectively once more.
Antonio’s storyline has been known as out for being an affordable knock-off of Severides work-related-injury-turned-addiction on Chicago Hearth, and whereas I agree it is not technically in-character for him, it additionally supplies a distinction to his cookie-cutter methods.
All through a lot of Chicago PD Season 6, Antonio received into scuffles and disagreements with Ruzek due to his want to do issues by the ebook.
Whereas there’s nothing improper with being in line, Antonio was the sort of one that would choose and select when to comply with the principles and when to interrupt them.
Principally, he thought it was okay to interrupt them when it benefited him which was past irritating.
Perhaps all of this needed to transpire for Antonio to be taught his lesson?
He proved to be the last word hypocrite when his righteous methods went out the door as he tried to attain capsules, ignored his staff, after which ran from them on the drug home.
And he verbally gave Voight the “okay” to go off-the-books and do no matter they may to get Eva again.
Antonio took fixed digs at Voight’s means of dealing with issues earlier than however then relied on those self same unethical strategies to get his daughter again.
Nonetheless, regardless of my annoyances with the inconsistencies in Antonio’s character, his downfall was arduous to look at.
All I do know is that in case you do not do what this monster says, he’ll kill her.
It simply goes to indicate you that dependancy doesn’t care about who you’re, what you do, or how a lot cash you make.
You’d suppose he would know higher than to permit himself to turn out to be so dependant on oxy as a result of he offers with druggies and sellers each day, however by the point he goes to the physician, he was too far gone.
He wasn’t considering rationally, he was simply trying to rating, no matter who his habits damage.
You noticed his indifference and dependancy present itself in his outbursts and extra particularly, the lies he was telling his family and friends.
Burgess’ chase down within the alley would have been far more efficient had we not seen the end result within the promos.
It is a nice instance as to why some of us keep away from promos altogether! Oftentimes, they destroy the ingredient of shock by freely giving an excessive amount of of the episode!
We’d have been extra shocked if we did not know that Antonio was going to going to get caught up along with his staff!
Nonetheless, getting caught was a blessing in disguise. The second he wasn’t capable of rating oxy the “authorized” means, he went down the unlawful avenue understanding rattling effectively that it might be laced with medication that might kill him!
Voight: What the hell is occurring?
Antonio: What do you imply?
Voight: You do not look so good, bro.
And when he could not get his fingers on these medication, he went to purchase heroine!
I imply, critically?
He is fortunate his pals picked up on his odd habits and that Voight, who has been across the block a number of occasions with addicts, picked up on all of the indicators.
Regardless of their distinction, Voight by no means turns his again on Antonio.
If he had, Antonio might need been a lifeless man.
It was additionally heartwarming to see the staff rally behind him. It is reassuring that they’ve one another’s backs it doesn’t matter what. They’ve all gone via their justifiable share of hardships so that they perceive.
Sadly, even having his daughter kidnapped wasn’t sufficient of a wake-up name for Antonio to cease chilly turkey.
He wasn’t even clear after they received the scumbag who kidnapped Eva.
Voight can discuss himself out of lots of issues, however drug exams do not lie.
He pulled so many strings to assist his buddy out, however on the finish of the day, their operation was off-the-books so it leaves them in a troublesome bind.
How are they going to elucidate Rizzo’s loss of life?
Certain, Rizzo was a scumbag who deserved it, however somebody must pay for it. If Antonio confesses, he will not be cleared due to the medication.
My guess is on Ruzek stepping as much as cowl for Antonio seeing because the writers selected these three — Voight, Antonio, and Ruzek — for the ultimate scene.
Ruzek is the one Antonio constantly butted heads with however he might be his saving grace right here. He can say that he was defending himself and by chance pushed Rizzo out.
Antonio taking it out on Rizzo wasn’t all that surprising, however my jaw was on the bottom as I took a step again and realized simply how badly Antonio screwed up that this was his new actuality.
Fortunately, Eva survived, even when she was badly crushed and presumably sexually assaulted.
Voight could also be a giant deal within the metropolis, however attempting to have a person with priors launched throughout election season had a marginal degree of success.
Everybody is aware of how essential politics are in Chicago. The corruption runs deep and these individuals will do something to raise themselves above the competitors.
Seeing all of them flip Voight’s request down regardless of “guarantees” wasn’t shocking.
Because the episode was so heavy and darkish, I will finish on a lighter observe by addressing Ruzek and Upton.
Regardless of my preliminary hesitation in the direction of the couple, Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 9 was the primary time I noticed actual chemistry between them.
From Ruzek’s joking about her shifting in with him — finally — to the best way he picked her up in his arms, you possibly can inform he actually cares about her.
It looks like this fling has the potential to show into one thing extra come the brand new 12 months, and surprisingly, I am not utterly against it.
What did you consider the winter finale? Did Antonio shock you? How do you suppose they’re going to get out of this one? Will Ruzek vouch for the one squad member he is by no means seen eye-to-eye with?
Be sure that to catch up earlier than the sequence returns and watch Chicago PD on-line proper right here at TV Fanatic!
Remark beneath and share this put up together with your Chicago PD loving pals.
