chicagopd41smallWhen Chicago PD first started, I was worried I wouldn’t like it because I remember Voight as being nothing but a corrupt…jerk (to put it politely) after he had the to-do with Casey on Chicago Fire. But he quickly grew on me. Does he still lean toward doing things on the wrong side of the line? Yeah, a lot of the time. But we’ve only seen him use his powers for good, which has been great. Last week, we saw him kidnap a diplomat from Argentina in order to help find out who murdered a young woman Ruzek had befriended while undercover with a protest group. I felt really bad for Ruzek, who took her death really hard because he knew she was a sweet girl who’d gotten mixed up in bad stuff. I loved how he finally leaned on Burgess for comfort. And finally, we met Halstead’s doctor brother, who came to Chicago for a seemingly innocent visit, but Halstead already knows (as do we) that there is some other reason for him to be here…

I have a feeling it’s going to be a hard episode tonight, as it’s going to pit Halstead (who is a true stand-up guy) against Voight when Voight crosses that line once more (but again, I think it’ll be for a good cause. Not saying that’ll excuse it. Just that it isn’t for his own gain.), and that scares me because I like Voight, but I LOVE Halstead. *sigh*

On tonight’s episode, “Get Back to Even,” Intelligence responds to a drug robbery gone wrong, and in their investigation, it’s revealed that the first person Voight ever gave his card to is linked to a double murder. Voight will fight to keep her family safe. At the same time, we learn the real reason why Halstead’s brother Will (guest star Nick Gehlfuss) came to Chicago. Meanwhile Desk Sgt. Platt takes care of a young girl at district.

Find out why Will is there and what tension there’s going to be with Voight tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Mysteries of Laura, Young & Hungry, The Goldbergs, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Mystery Diners, black-ish, Best New Restaurant, Hot in Cleveland, & The Soul Man.

theamericans41smallI was thrilled by yesterday’s announcement that The Americans had been picked up for a fourth season — this season has been so good! Last week, Philip and Elizabeth broke into the shop where the FBI mail robot was being repaired, so they could plant a new bug inside the machine. However, while they were there, a sweet elderly woman showed up to do the company’s books. Elizabeth talked with Betty, revealing lots of information about herself and her past in the process, and the woman soon realized that Elizabeth was not going to let her live. Sure enough, Elizabeth forced the woman to commit suicide, overdosing on her heart medicine. Meanwhile, Martha told Philip about the FBI discovering his bugged pen and that she knows his story of being Internal Affairs is a lie; Stan and Oleg hatched a plot to use Nina to out defector Zinaida as a double-agent; and after Elizabeth fired KGB intern Hans, he gruesomely murdered the witness who saw him, and then he got his job back.

This season has been pretty gruesome and brutal but also a very tense, dramatic thriller. I have loved the scenes with Martha — how much does she really know about Clark, and how long will she keep his secret? And the scenes with Betty last week were so emotionally draining. I have already seen tonight’s amazing episode, and it’s one that can’t be missed. There are some major developments and lots more stressful, tense moments! I love not knowing what will happen next, because anything is possible!

On tonight’s episode, “Stingers,” a plan for the CIA’s mujahideen is set in motion by Philip and Elizabeth, but tensions are rising in the Jennings’ home.

To see if tensions can be resolved, tune in to FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, The Dovekeepers, The Middle, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, black-ish, Arrow, Supernatural, Young & Hungry, Broadchurch, Workaholics, and Big Time in Hollywood, FL.
