    I agree with a lot of what you have said. I also have to say that on the whole I have been disappointed by this season and also this episode. Tracy Spiridakos’ performance was outstanding and is really the highlight of this episode. I agree with you about Sean. His best appearance was his first. After that, he wasn’t very interesting and his performance in this episode was underwhelming. I also did not like Voight giving the Chief the file on his son. The moment that he did, I (and I’m sure most fans of the show) knew he was going to confront his son. Sean was not a criminal mastermind and quite a downgrade as an adversary for a multiple episode run as compared to Escano from last season. Given that his father was bailing him out, I think I would have preferred to find out that the chief was really the brains behind the operation, it could have been more interesting than what they actually did.

    My initial reaction to Hailey not wanting to save Sean was, please don’t go down this road with Hailey again. We saw “dark Hailey” and I don’t need to see it again. Your comment that given her past and what has happened in this episode (and this arc) that it caused her to pause rather than immediately render aid makes sense. What is consistent about Voight is that he sees himself as being the one that has to do “what other cops can’t or won’t for the greater good” and he tries for the most part (without success) to keep his unit from following his lead. I can imagine that if Hailey was not there that he might have let Sean die, but since Hailey was there, he pushed her to do the right thing for her own good.
