This week Chicago PD gave us a Hailey-centric episode with “The Devil You Know,” and I couldn’t be happier. I absolutely love Hailey, and I am all for any episode where she gets to shine. This may just be one of my favorite episodes of this season so far. But it turns out the Hailey we all know and love has a dark side. And I’m not gonna lie, I’m kind of worried about her.
Hailey Upton’s Got A Dark Side
Hailey Upton has always been a stickler for the rules. She goes by the book, and we love her for that. She was always the one we could count on to be level-headed about things when everyone else wanted to seek justice by whatever means necessary. But when you mess with someone she cares about, all bets are off. And I definitely wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of Hailey Upton’s rage.
I can’t say I blame Hailey for wanting to take matters into her own hands and seek justice. After all, Darius did have her C.I. killed right in front of her. That had to be pretty traumatic. It was so cute how worried Jay was about her, too. He could tell that she was upset about the Darius Walker situation, and wanted to make sure she was okay. Hopefully now that Darius is dead, she doesn’t need to go all dark again. I’m all for badass Hailey Upton, but she was headed down a dark path.
Darius Is Gone For Good This Time
From the moment we first met Darius Walker, I didn’t like him. I could just sense that he was a shady guy who was only looking out for himself. So when Darius screwed intelligence over time and time again to save himself, I wasn’t surprised.
Even though I didn’t like the man, I will say that his death was pretty gruesome. But when you have people killed for your own personal gain, it’s bound to come back and bite you. I’m not saying that he deserved to die necessarily, but he definitely didn’t deserve to get away with what he did, either.
Stand Out Scene
I don’t know about anyone else, but I thought the ending scene between Hank and Hailey was well-done. You could tell that he could sense that she was heading down a dark path, and he doesn’t want her to turn out like him. I thought it was really sweet how he was genuinely worried about Hailey and wanted to make sure she was okay and warn her about the path she was headed down.
From what I can remember, we have never really seen Voight be remorseful for his actions. He always seemed to feel that he did what he had to do in order to protect the people he cares about. The only time I can really remember him regretting his actions is when they ultimately got Al killed. But this scene allowed us to see that he does regret his past and will do anything to prevent one of his own from ending up in the same boat. Because if there’s one thing Voight cares about, it’s his unit and the people in it.
Jay: Pregnant and undercover. That’s a good name for a reality show.
Hailey: He saw your face and you had him killed. He died right in front of me. So you can tell yourself whatever story you want about the life you think you’re living, but don’t forget the truth. The truth is you’re the kind of man that has people killed just because they see your face
Jay: Twenty different times you have figured out a way to tell me ‘don’t get too close’. I’m telling you, you’re too close
Voight: Cases like this, the only people I trust are the ones I can see from my desk.
Hailey: Last time I checked, this wasn’t a democracy
Voight: I don’t need medals, I need warrants
Hailey: He might’ve asked me out on a date. I might’ve said no
