    I agree completely. There was absolutely no reason even attempted, much less given, why Jay went rogue the last three episodes. The writers delivered fans a slap in the face, and I am quite certain they do not know their own characters at all. I am done with Chicago PD, and it was my absolute favorite show. What a shame.

    I agree with most of what you have written. I do disagree that Chicago PD has been about strength of family. I think Chicago Fire has been about that. I think Chicago PD has been, for lack of better phrasing, about the grey areas in law enforcement and whether “the ends justify the means.” This has always centered around Voight. Voight has always had a foil. First, Antonio and then Jay.

    I loved Season 9, so far I am disappointed with Season 10 and hated the last episode. You are correct all of the character development put into Halstead, thrown away. The careful development and cultivation of Jay and Hailey from partners, to boyfriend/girlfriend to husband and wife damaged and possibly tossed away. Since Season 4 (and possibly earlier), this show had been building to a confrontation between Jay and Voight. A battle of wills to see whose view could steer the Intelligence Unit going forward. I thought we would see it in the Season 9 final, but we didn’t get it. That was fine by me because I thought we would get it this season.
    There were a lot of great possibilities and now they are gone. When Gabby left Chicago Fire, it made sense. She was always impulsive and did what she wanted regardless of the consequences. Her suddenly leaving for Puerto Rico made sense and was consistent with her character. Jay suddenly going to Bolivia made no sense. He also does this with Voight and Hailey not being in the best place. If they were going to have Jay leave, this episode should have had Voight and Hailey come together in some way and Jay should have left in the next episode.

    Where does the show go from here? There is not a clear foil to Voight. Hailey has her issues based on the lines she has crossed in the past and in this episode. Adam won’t do it. Dante is too young and not ready for that role. There has been no build up for Kim to step into those shoes. Kevin is the best candidate and he has pushed back on Voight so it makes sense. Hopefully Jay returns to Chicago and Upstead can continue off screen, but I would not be surprised if Jay gets killed in Bolivia.

      “Strength in family” is the season’s logline — lol, not my own assessment.

    I agree with ya, but who quit who? It has always been hard for me to stay awake til 11oclock, Now I don’t have to. Have ya heard the term “cut ya nose off to spite your face” ? To me NBC did just that!! I’m really pissed off @ NBC right now! They had better have a darn good back up plan for me to continue support of Chicago PD!!

    Thank you for entering my head and writing all my thoughts down so eloquently. The show was just bad!!! Chicago PD has to do better! This had to be the worst episode of the series. Really afraid for the future!
