All the Burzek feels with this episode! This episode provided us with so much Burzek content, and I loved it. I am falling more and more in love with Burzek each episode. The writers better treat them with care though, because I don’t want their relationship to feel rushed like last time. Overall, “In Your Care” was a solid episode of PD.
That opening scene! I’m not a huge Burzek shipper, but this episode had me all in my Burzek feels. Domestic Burzek, just like domestic Upstead, is SO GOOD. And Adam saying that he wants to date Kim again? So freaking cute! Their scenes together are so genuine and sweet, and it’s clear that those two care a lot about each other and there are definitely still feelings there. I’m beginning to accept the idea that Burzek is endgame.
I’m warming up to Burzek, guys! They’re still not my favorite One Chicago or even PD couple, but I definitely ship them now. However, I definitely think they have some issues to work out before they start a relationship again. And I definitely still want their relationship to progress naturally and not be forced or rushed like it was last time. I like what I am seeing so far, and I am all aboard the Burzek train. I’m interested to see how their relationship progresses after the opening scene and the conversations they had this episode.
Burgess and Makayla Reunited
Burgess reuniting with Makayla was adorable. The way Makayla ran right to Kim after she saw her was so freaking precious. Those two clearly have a clearly formed a bond that will last forever, and that bond is one of the many reasons that Kim is going to be a great foster mom to Makayla. But as much as I love that Kim is fostering Makayla, I can’t help but wonder if Adam has a point. Is Kim moving too fast after losing the baby? Can she just not stand the idea of seeing another kid lost? She has a strong bond with Makayla, there’s no denying that, but would she have been so quick to take Makayla home if she hadn’t fallen in love with the idea of being a mom from her pregnancy?
I know that we all would have liked to see Adam foster Makayla with Burgess. There’s no denying that having a little Burzek family, no matter how unconventional, is appealing. However, we have to put ourselves in Adam’s shoes. Adam experienced a lot of trauma with the loss of the Burzek baby, too. Pulling Kim out of the bathtub, waiting beside her in the hospital room, losing his baby too. He might not be ready to bring another kid into his life, and that’s not his fault. He’s still healing, too. However, I think he’ll end up coming around. Just give him some time.
Stand Out Scene
Kim told their main suspect to lie. Girl, what were you thinking?! Lying is never okay, but especially when it interferes with the investigation of a case. She probably won’t get in any trouble for this, though, because the only One Chicago character besides Noah Sexton in this week’s Chicago Med that has faced any real consequences for their actions is Hailey when she got sent to work for the FBI.
I get that she was trying to help the other kids. Kids are her weak spot. But you can’t save every kid, Kim. Especially if said kids have done something illegal. I think Kim feels guilty about losing her baby, so she’s now made it her personal mission to save every kid she can. But girl, some kids just can’t be saved.
Kim: I want all of it, Adam. I want the proposal, I want getting married at some bad banquet hall, I want to have babies, I want the job, I want the mess, I want the whole thing.
Kim: Do you ever wonder if maybe that’s the reason we’re even closer now? Why we wanna be together all the time? Why we act like a couple? Because of this terrible thing that happened to us?
Kim: It’s not real. It’s not closeness. It’s just trauma.
Adam: We fell in love with something, then we lost something together. Sometimes trauma just brings people closer. Why is that not real?
Adam: You know you can’t replace what we lost.
Adam: I’m a little worried that this is a reaction. That you just can’t stand the idea of seeing another kid lost.
Adam: I’m too comfortable, and you’re very warm.
Kevin: I think that would change your life.
