Season 5 of Chicago PD has been nothing but a rush of intense entertainment.
When the show returned in January, the show picked up from its fall finale of Ruzek trying to fix what he had done with his deal with Woods, who was trying to get Voight caught and fired. But Voight and Al figured out before even Adam could even come forward to Voight. But when Voight learns about it, he had Ruzek go along with Woods as if what happened here never happen so they could grab more information.
Ruzek gets put into a corner and keeps on doing business with Woods. But it's doesn't seem to be the end as the body of the man who killed Voight's son has been found at a construction site. Woods, with his cheesy grin, talks to Voight and give him updates on the process. Voight, in the meantime, can only do what he can to keep him and Erin, who moved the body there, away from being the suspects.
Meanwhile, Halstead's keeps his undercover job as his relationship with Camilla grows. But when someone gets killed, who happens to be an undercover agent, outside of the bar, Halstead tries to do everything he can to keep her away from trouble. Voight and Upton aren't too pleased about it (you think?) and forces him to get her to confess about what had happened to an undercover agent. But she gives a name and not only takes him down but Camilla down as well and it wasn't too pretty for Jay to do so, let alone apologizes as well.
Atwater gets kidnapped when he was checking on someone and is assumed to be another drug salesman. But while being held up, he's with a man that even hates Atwater as it's the father of the son that he shot years ago. But after trying to talk about it, the two worked together to get out and does, but Atwater comes close to getting killed.
Burgess not only deals with professional issues when Antonio gets close to a visiting detective that turns out to be a mother on revenge on a drug lord, who killed her son. But also personally when she and the team take on a rape and murder case that hits close to home.
So far this season has been amazing and intense to watch with such great writing in developing these characters. The performances from the cast have been a home run with performances from Jesse Lee Soffer to Marina Squerciati and LaRoyce Hawkins. The Halstead storyline this season has been an emotionally wild ride to watch as he's dealing with personal issues that dived into his profession.
So far I give this part of the season an 8.5/10.
And tonight's the epic 100th episode milestone but also the #OneChicago crossover with Chicago Fire.
You can catch Chicago PD Wednesdays at 10/9c on NBC.
