The Bro code.
The thought of “all for one and one for all” takes on a completely completely different that means on Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 10.
Personally, I am not keen on how the sequence portrays brotherhood and loyalty as a result of it is wishy-washy.
Everybody ought to be taught from Olinksy’s mistake.
He was loyal to his longtime good friend Voight on Chicago PD Season 5 Episode 21 by taking the autumn in a homicide investigation, and whereas it was a noble gesture, it additionally price him his life.
Voight wasn’t joking when he mentioned this type of loyalty comes with a value.
Voight: Who the hell do you assume you might be? You do not defend me. I defend you. That is my job. I am the one who allowed Antonio to be there. That is on me. From this level on, you do not say one other phrase about this, you get me?
Ruzek: Sure, sir.
This time, Ruzek is the one keen to provide all of it up within the title of loyalty.
Up till now, we have not seen the place Ruzek stands or what his ethics are, however I used to be barely stunned he was keen to place his neck on the road contemplating his rocky relationship with Antonio.
I’d have anticipated Ruzek simply to inform the reality and throw Antonio underneath the bus (some may say that is well-deserved) to guard his boss.
Antonio is the one who acquired them on this mess within the first place. He did not assume twice about how it could have an effect on the squad!
And whereas I am positive Antonio would not need anybody taking the autumn for him, he let it occur. That is not solely upsetting however hypocritical on his half as he is at all times preaching about enjoying by the foundations.
Will he come clear as soon as he finds out about Ruzek’s sacrifice?
I perceive that Ruzek is simply making an attempt to save lots of everybody, however why would not the one that put them within the tight spot must be held accountable?
There have been many different instances the bro code took priority over logic on this sequence; nonetheless, Ruzek ignoring all motive was the one which did it for me.
It is one factor to be loyal to your boss, but it surely’s one other factor to go above his orders intentionally.
So many individuals had been making an attempt to speak Ruzek out of taking the autumn, and Platt had most likely essentially the most convincing argument: Voight would discover a method out of this.
He at all times does.
Ruzek? Not a lot.
Positive, corporal would try and dig up all incriminating proof on Voight, however he is additionally Voight.
He can deal with his personal battles, he has mates in excessive locations, his title carries weight, and he is aware of find out how to make offers and negotiate. That is how he is gotten up to now regardless of his unconventional techniques.
The one factor everybody in Intelligence wants to appreciate is that Voight is untouchable; he doesn’t want his staff to take one for him.
So, as Platt identified, sure, it could be successful for Voight, but it surely would not be practically as damaging as it could be for Ruzek.
Nonetheless, Ruzek made up his thoughts, and there was no altering it, which is able to make for some attention-grabbing storylines down the road.
I see the place Ruzek is coming from — he lastly suits in someplace, seems like he owes them, and is grateful — and most significantly, he does not assume Intelligence might soldier on with out Voight.
However as we have seen time and time once more, it may well.
Ruzek is coping with an officer-involved loss of life investigation. And that is the final this staff will focus on it. You by no means have to clarify one thing you did not say or hear.
Ruzek’s connection to the carjackings felt underused and stuffy.
He was already coping with a lot it did not make a distinction if he knew the perps or not.
Although, perhaps it did clarify why he felt so passionately about being a part of a staff and defending mentioned staff.
There have been a thousand methods Ruzek’s assertion might have been discredited, but it surely was the rattling recent blood.
He is so fortunate the world did not have cameras!
I might see Voight pulling some strings and ensuring the “blood samples” get swapped out. You heard the person — his job is to deal with the staff.
Did anybody else discover it odd that the second there was an officer-related loss of life, the higher-ups instantly assumed there was one thing fishy happening?
It appeared prefer it was frequent to discredit the officer as a substitute of assuming they did all the things by the guide to guard themselves.
Whereas a lot of the Intelligence staff was staying again and never getting concerned, Upton could not simply stand by idly and let her man take the autumn for one thing he did not do.
It is a new 12 months, and one thing bizarre occurred — I sort of fell for Upton and Ruzek as a pair.
Their first battle illuminated the real emotions they’ve for one another.
Upton: Are you insane? There are a thousand methods this goes flawed. A thousand methods you find yourself on the flawed finish of this. If IRT got here to query you which means there’s discrepancies in your story. You’re risking your profession, jail time.
Ruzek: I do know.
Upton: Your life. For what? Some half-ass notion of loyalty?
Ruzek: It’s not a notion. It is Antonio. It is Voight. It is our unit. It is OUR unit. And I will defend it each time. Each time! That is who I’m. Why do you will have an issue with that?
Upton: I haven’t got an issue with that. I’ve an issue with one thing taking place to you.
Ruzek: No, you will have an issue with my rattling ethics, Hailey. You at all times have had an issue with that. And I am not going to speak about policing with you once more.
Upton: Hear. This has nothing to do with police loyalty, it has to do with you. I care about you.
Halstead (interrupting): I can hear you guys within the stairwell. What the hell are you doing?
Upton: Nothing. It is tremendous, sorry.
Halstead: You can’t be having this dialog right here.
Ruzek is making an attempt to show he is not “only a fairly face,” whereas Upton was shocked by the severity of her emotions for a relationship that was imagined to be “informal.”
And this, mates, is one more instance that informal courting and “mates with advantages” does not work. Somebody at all times develops emotions!
I discovered myself having a lot respect for her when she informed Voight that she’d fairly be doing anything than placing herself on the road “for a man she’s courting.”
You can see how a lot Upton cared about Ruzek in the way in which she spoke to Voight; her supply was emotionally charged.
And when she lastly got here clear about her relationship to Halstead, it was pure and real.
Halstead understands the state of affairs she’s in since he is been down the identical street with a girl for which he’d do something.
Perhaps he may give her some recommendation?
I beloved how Halstead informed her that they might at all times be good. Their friendship and partnership are a few of the strongest on the sequence proper now.
If I did really feel slightly spark between them, although, I am glad the main target is on the friendship between them fairly than making it one other romance or worse, a romantic triangle.
I used to be additionally genuinely stunned with Burgess’ indifference in the direction of Ruzek’s state of affairs.
For somebody who was as soon as so near him, she ought to have picked up on the truth that issues weren’t as they appear.
As a substitute, Burgess, very like the remainder of the staff, stayed out of it.
The writers and actors discuss a lot about Burgess and Ruzek being “end-game,” however this felt just like the furthest factor from it.
However I can see how the storyline — Ruzek incriminating himself and placing his job and status on the road for Voight and Antonio — might trigger a rift between Ruzek and Upton.
She did not wish to fall however did, and it ended up in heartbreak as a result of Ruzek did not take her emotions into consideration when he made his determination.
Upton may be very explicit in regards to the people she surrounds herself with and who she permits into her circle. She’s protecting due to her previous, so I might see her calling issues off with Ruzek on account of his actions.
And that may permit Ruzek and Burgess to search out their method again collectively steadily.
Upton: You’ll be able to’t let him do that. Not after what occurred to Olinsky.
Voight: I’d cease proper there. No matter that is — anger at me, distinction of opinion. emotion getting one of the best of you for a man your courting — I’d cease and stroll proper again out that door.
Upton: It is all these issues. And belief me, I do not wish to be right here. I do not wish to be risking my profession for a man I am courting, however right here I’m. He has my loyalty, and I do not know find out how to assist him. So, I am asking you.
Voight: Hailey, I am doing all the things I can to assist him. Every little thing. However on the finish of the day, it may be his determination, not mine.
Although, at this level, I do not want the one two sturdy females on the present conflicted due to a person. Let’s keep away from that in any respect prices.
I ponder how Burgess will react when she finds out Upton is concerned along with her former man. Will she be upset? Or will she be comfortable for them?
I am handing over the mic to you.
What did you consider the primary Chicago PD of 2019?
Did Ruzek make the suitable name? Was Upton out of line? Ought to Voight have discovered from the errors of his previous, specifically Olinsky’s loss of life after taking the autumn for him, and fought tougher for Ruzek to be absolved of this case?
Will the staff must testify? Will Upton lie for Ruzek? Or will Antonio come clear?
