Chicago PD 2×13 “A Little Devil Complex”

Chicago P.D.

Robert Knepper has a knack for playing creepy evil dudes. He guest stars in this week’s Chicago PD as Adrian Gish the pyromaniac who is responsible for not only the death of Leslie Shay our beloved paramedic from Chicago Fire but also a handful of other CFD alumni. I will always remember Knepper as Theodore Bagwell or T-bag from Prison Break. He was the ridiculously evil inmate that you loved to hate and his portrayal of Gish this episode leads me to believe that Robert has a talent for bringing to life the men that creep you the heck out.

Anyways enough with my fangirling, this week the team is called into action by Antonio’s sister, Gabriella Dawson, a paramedic from sister show Chicago Fire. Now I have missed the past few episodes of Chicago Fire so I did miss the first half of this two part episode. But it’s fairly easy to pick up the important pieces. Pretty much Gish is a sneaky little fire starter who has pretty much all but admitted to firehouse 51 that he was the one to start the fire that ended in Shay’s death. Dawson asks for Antonio’s help because it is incredibly hard to prove arson, and she can’t have the man who murdered her bestie still strolling around town. With Lindsay back the team goes at this case full force, tailing Gish wherever he goes, putting the pressure on him in the hopes that he will make a mistake and they can catch him in the act. Burgess and Roman get their squad car blown up, luckily without them inside it, but nobody witnesses Gish do it. It isn’t until they figure out Gish is only an alliance and track down his true identity and his real home that they discover Gish is going after Gabriella, Antonio’s sister. And then of course it is a race against the clock for Antonio to get to Gabriella, who is stuck in an elevator having gas thrown on her, before Gish drops the lighter. Needless to say all ends well, Antonio shoots Gish killing him and Gabby catches the lighter an inch before it hits the gas. It’s a little bit too close for my liking. I feel like Antonio could have done something other than shooting the man who was holding a lit lighter over a pool of gasoline which his sister is standing in. But maybe he was counting on Gabby’s lightning fast reflexes. It just seemed a little careless is all. But I suppose that is how Intelligence rolls, all actions before thoughts.

Lindsay’s back. Her and Halstead are partners once again, but unlike I predicted she isn’t calling it quits on Linstead. She does however prefer to keep it between the two of them, stating that it is nobody else’s business. It doesn’t appear to be affecting their work as the two act completely the same the whole way through until the very end after the case is wrapped and Halstead shows up on Lindsay’s doorstep to ravage her. I’m not complaining. This way we get the adorable Linstead badass partnership we have come to love but also get to see the couple-y moments as well, it’s a win-win. Although there has to be some type of dramatic repercussions from their coupling or else there would have been no reason why they couldn’t have gotten together sooner. I wanna see Voight go all papa bear on Halstead and give him the speech. One can only dream.
