Chicago PD 1-27-15

What did you think of the case?

Elizabeth: The NSA thing was different, so I liked that. It had some good twists and turns, but it wasn't riveting.

Honey: It was almost like Mouse's twin was there. I liked that part. It would be kind of cool if he were to become a part of that show, in a Federal kind of way like to the side sort of. It was different. I agree with Elizabeth it had a lot of twists and turns. It didn't grab me where I would hold on and not let go.

Stacy: It wasn't one of my favorites. There was a lot going on, but it didn't hold my interest as much as others.

What would you have done if you were Atwater?

Elizabeth: Tough call. I mean Chicago is a city known to run with more than a little grease on the skids, but having to bail the kid out twice in a day or two would make me a little hesitant. I mean, he has no real indication that this favor will be returned. The balance is getting out of whack pretty quickly here.

Honey: Well I think possibly I might do that one time, but not twice with the same kid. I think that was a little weird. After the first time, I would think that he would go straight but that didn't happen, so maybe I would have thought he should do little bit of jail time, so he could learn his lesson.

Stacy: You know the saying "fool me once..." Doing the favor once I can understand, but I agree that after he blew his second chance I would be hesitant to do it again. Chances are these favors are going to escalate, better to pull the plug now.

Is Roman about to get himself involved in a dangerous situation?

Elizabeth: Yeah, I mean, even if the ex-husband isn't the type to come after him in a jealous rage, he should tread carefully. This woman is in a very fragile state, and the last thing Roman (really either of them) needs is for her to latch onto him as some kind of emotional displacement of her grief.

Honey: I would say he is definitely on the road to trouble. I think Andrew's mom is trying to develop a relationship with Roman to gain his protection from her ex-husband. He seems like a jerk and not very stable. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that he just wants to strike out, and I think for the most part, Roman is going to get into big trouble. I think he should use caution when it comes to this situation, but knowing Roman, he is going to go and be the hero.

Stacy: Getting involved with this woman right now does not seem like a good idea. I agree with Elizabeth, this is not what either of them needs right now.

What was your favorite quote or scene?

Elizabeth: Burgess' statement about having sociopathic tendencies as a child was funny on a few levels, and the her attempts at subterfuge had me alternately giggling and covering my face in embarrassment.

Honey: I like Mouse and all he has to input into the scenario of the stolen chips along with his twin.

Stacy: Burgess trying to covertly find out Platt's ring size was hilarious. I also liked the stakeout scene with Lindsay and Halstead.

Did anything disappoint you?

Elizabeth: I wouldn't say I was disappointed by anything specific, but I wasn't exactly thrilled by anything either.

Honey: Not really, like Elizabeth said, it wasn't a gripping episode.

Stacy: Burgess not texting Mouch the ring size instead of that uncomfortable attempt at telling him in front of Platt.

Stacy Glanzman was a staff writer for TV Fanatic. She retired in March, 2019.
