Anna secured her “in” with Escano.
We received again to that pivotal case on Chicago PD Season 9 Episode 16, and whereas it was slow-moving for a while, that capturing kicked issues into gear.
Of course, with every passing second with Anna, it seems like she’s not lengthy for this world.
The hour primarily served as case-heavy and a possibility to meet up with the Escano open case and flesh Anna out even additional.
We spent most of our time with Voight, Anna, Halstead, and Upton, and it is evident that this case is attending to Voight in some ways.
He’s pouring his all into it, but it surely’s very very similar to a General sending his troopers into battle from the skin wanting in. Voight makes all these calls; some are fueled by emotion, others lack it. And lots of them irking Halstead and Upton or Anna.
By the top of the hour, he acknowledged what all of us knew to be true. The job is every part that he has proper now. It’s the one factor he has left, so he clings to it. I do not know who Voight could be with out it or if he’d stop to exist if that point got here.
In some methods, it makes for a tragic existence, but it surely’s a part of what makes his relationship with Anna a compelling one. She manages to grasp him on some degree.
While it is laborious to say that these two would ever be pals in some capability outdoors of this, the bond they’re constructing is born out of some similarities and an understanding of each other.
We’re going after Escano for every part. I need him for every part.
But that is one of some the explanation why it feels as if Anna is on borrowed time. She is rising on the opposite characters, and whether or not Voight would acknowledge it or not, he has a delicate spot for her.
Maybe that is why he tries laborious to not present it.
He’s been assured that he can throw something at her and place her in any place, and he or she’ll get outcomes and are available out of it on the opposite aspect. Her resilence is one thing of which he admires and relates. But you’ll be able to sense that he is taking that with no consideration.
Every time he sends Anna undercover to do one thing, she narrowly escapes together with her life.
Adrian capturing up the bakery was scary, and at any level, she may’ve caught a stray bullet. But her actions after which might be what expedited her getting nearer to Escano, however as a lot as he sees her potential, he is good sufficient to acknowledge how good and harmful she is, too.
Getting in good with Escano doesn’t suggest something when everybody round him is expendable. It does not really feel like there is a manner that Anna will get out of this alive, and I hate that she’ll be one other individual that Voight loses to the job.
Escano is horrifying. He did not react as a mean particular person would when Adrian was bleeding out on the ground. He did not get as offended as you’d think about when he overheard Anna’s inquiries.
He’s unpredictable, and it is terrifying. When he instructed Anna that he knew who she was and gave particulars about her life, it was sufficient to present you chills. He went from calling her “Rebecca” to having her quantity in virtually each manner.
But it is due to his thorough investigation he knew he may make Anna his new runner.
Anna: OK, we try this. How will we construct the case?
Anna: You get nearer.
Anna is such an adrenaline junkie sort particular person. But the truth of what all this entails is hitting her laborious. She was beside herself after they did not break cowl to hurry into the bakery and rescue Adrian. She went from barely working the register to sewing up a gunshot wound whereas sobbing.
Voight was taking part in a dangerous and questionable recreation, risking Adrian’s life like that. And he continued to push the envelope for the remainder of the hour.
Adrian’s motive for killing Joshua was anti-climactic, however Voight trying to speak the child out of killing himself was intense and horrifying when Adrian pulled the set off. They did not shrink back from the violence throughout this installment.
Escano is a monster for making that teenager commit suicide. He knew that Adrian would do something for him and undergo with no matter he stated.
Voight tried his greatest to avoid wasting Adrian, but it surely ended with Voight watching the sunshine exit of that boy’s eyes after that prolonged scene. It’s extra motivation for Voight to take Escano down. He stated he needed to get him for every part, and it is plausible. He was irate after Adrian’s loss of life.
Things will solely worsen earlier than they get higher, but it surely’ll be fascinating to see them construct an enormous case towards Escano. Anna is essential to that, however they’re going to want greater than her.
It’s hitting her how deep she’s gotten, and for the primary time, we noticed her questioning every part. She wasn’t fallacious about Escano and Voight both.
They’re each utilizing her and need one thing out of her, and he or she’s beholden to them in several methods. Both males know sufficient about her to leverage her.
Escano: You’re not afraid.
Anna: Excuse me?
And the deeper she will get into this, the extra harmful it’s and unsettled she feels. She has to maintain distancing herself from Voight for the case and her safety, however you’ll be able to inform she’s combating that. It’s comprehensible why she requested for one thing out of him.
She wants some sort of connection to remind her why Voight is completely different than Escano and so she does not really feel like a disposable asset.
The different characters fell to the background massive time over this hour. It meant that we did not get any type of follow-up on earlier tales. It might be so distracting, particularly once we’re coming off of storylines like kidnappings.
But alas, it is what you come to anticipate with this collection.
Anna: You instructed me you’ve gotten a son.
Voight: He’s useless. This job is all I’ve left.
