Chicago PD Season 5 Episode 20 Review: Saved

at .  Updated at .

Denny and Voight are at it again, flexing their muscles to see who carries more weight in this town. 

Ironically, Chicago PD Season 5 Episode 20 is titled "Saved," even though everything is stacked against Olinksy and Voight.

Voight may be powerful, but Denny has everyone in his pocket right about now. And, of course, he cleared Ruben's possession charges since he needs him to testify.

Can He Save Hannah? - Chicago PD Season 5 Episode 20

Initially, Olinksy believes the best course of action is to just let the trial pan out since the D.A doesn't have enough evidence on him.

However, by the end, Voight realizes that maybe this isn't such an easy fix after all. Someone is going to have to pay the price for Kevin Bingham's death. 

The question is, will it be Voight or Olinsky?

Hank is loyal, so I don't think he would ever allow someone else to take the fall for his mistakes.

The "case of the week" involves Hannah, a young girl from Voight's past that's supposed to give us some Lindsay vibes. 

When she reaches out for help, Voight registers that his actions have consequences for which he must be held accountable. 

When Justin passed, he stopped checking up on Hannah which is how she found herself in that mess with some Bonnie and Clyde wannabes in the first place. She didn't have that father figure in Voight, so she found it in another man who didn't have her best interests at heart.

He told me that you're wasting your time. And that he can't help you get in front of something that you're already in the middle of.


She needed his love so badly, she was willing to do whatever he said.

It's unfortunate because Hannah's instincts were telling her that she needed a way out. That's why she reached out to Voight. But she was in too deep. 

Final Moments - Chicago PD Season 5 Episode 20

It occurs to Voight that, much like Hannah, Olinsky is going to pay the price for his vengeful decision to murder Bingham. 

Olinsky tells him he "can't save everyone," but in Voight's eyes, he hasn't saved anyone yet. He couldn't save Hannah, or his wife, or Lindsay, or Olinsky's daughter, or his own son.

The only person he does have the ability to save is Olinsky. Since we know he'll go to the ends of the world for the people he cares about, my guess is that he's going to decide to turn himself in rather than letting Olinsky take the fall. 

Confess Hank. 27-years on this job. We both know you did not do it clean. Well, the bullet is finally coming for you Hank, it just has to go through Olinsky first.


However, Voight can talk himself out of nearly anything, so I'm willing to bet he'll come out relatively unscathed.

That 27-year career Denny tried to disregard? Well, it was filled with wins. I've said this a million times, but Voight has done a whole lot of good protecting Chicago even if his actions were shady and unethical. He's always done what's best for the people while Denny does things in spite of them. 

That has to count for something in court, right?

Denny is such a hypocrite; he questions the legitimacy of Voight's whole career because it "wasn't by the book," but tell me, has Denny always done things by the book?

Don't Be Biased - Chicago PD Season 5 Episode 20

Last I checked, when Denny needed Voight and Olinsky to save his daughter, he didn't care if they broke the rules.

The whole feud between Voight and Woods has spanned several episodes, and I've reached the point where I'm ready for it to be over. 

I was secretly wishing Voight would just sock Denny in the face, Chicago style. He deserves it. Especially because he came around to the precinct gloating about his takedown. 

The whole Hannah storyline fell a bit flat to me. The writers really wanted it to feel like Hank lost another family member, but it would have been more effective had we known a bit more about their connection.

I know he cared about her because she was Camille's student and felt that he owed it to his wife to protect her, but honestly, we've never even heard of her. There has not been a single mention. 

You know, Chief Lugo just told me to call. But I figured I shouldn't waste an opportunity to come by here while I still can. Because pretty soon you and Al are gonna be, uh, tied up.


Why are we supposed to care about some girl we've only seen with Hank on one rare occasion?

She came around just as quickly as she left. And she didn't even stick around for breakfast! 

Put The Gun Down  - Chicago PD Season 5 Episode 20

The case was also a bit hard to follow because like Upton said, these guys were messy and had no clue what they were doing.

Why did they rob currency exchanges? Why did they shoot people? Why were they on the run? Why did they have a death wish? We got absolutely no answers.

I know love makes you do stupid things, but I refuse to accept that a girl would go along with all of that just because she loved a guy. 

Addie: But I'm not doing anything.
Voight: You're getting your friend killed.

If Hank's wife was so fond of her, I'd like to think she knew better than to point her gun at cops because her man was doing it and expect a different outcome. 

I've never had much of a problem with Antonio, but I was a little irritated with his black-and-white mentality. Yes, he was simply trying to make sure that Voight wasn't biased but it didn't sit well with me.

Just because the girl was present at the robbery and wielding a gun doesn't mean she was doing it willingly. And just because she didn't use the nearby door to escape doesn't mean she didn't want to escape. 

There is such a thing as being coerced and being too frightened to make a move. Her life was in danger, after all! 

A Mysterious Connection - Chicago PD

Interrogation scenes will always be my favorite, especially when Halstead sits back and revels in watching Voight make controlled and calculated threats. 

These punks always come in there thinking they will wave the "I want my lawyer" flag, and all their problems will just disappear. 

But newsflash, honey, that doesn't work here! 

Although, I'll say seeing Voight shake up a young, innocent girl was definitely frightening. It just goes to show you, no one is safe from his wrath! 

Do you think Olinsky will stand trial for murder? Will Voight fess up? Will Intelligence need a new boss?
