In the last episode, Voight makes a deal with the mob in hopes that he can clear a murder, but Lindsey is not sure it’s a good idea. Lindsey is starting to see that Voight’s word is not held to the same esteem as it was before despite the fact that he saved her from her mother. Her questioning him is not something that Voight is used to, but nevertheless does what he wants anyways. In this week’s episode, titled ‘I am God’, we get the third part of the 3-part Chicago Crossover. The first two parts had the police trying to find the person who stabbed one of their own on the fire department, while in the second part they get called in to find someone who is diagnosing cancer patients with too much chemo which causes them to die or make it look like suicide. The title is a big overshadowing to what we can expect on the show.
The victims, Annie, Jessica, Carrol, and Dana are the sole focus of the show. When they find out that Dr. Dean Ribault is the one that diagnosed them, it quickly turns personal for Voight. He was Voight’s wife’s doctor, right before she died. Coincidence? I think not. It’s not only personal for Voight but for Lindsey as well. They bond over Camille’s passing and how much she meant to both of them. It’s these moments that they have together that are truly beautiful. A beautiful kind of father-daughter relationship that is not on TV enough.
Things get complicated when the unit talk with the people that Ribault actually helped. They seem more devastated that they were used as pawns to get money and not as a way to help them. Considering it touches on a sensitive subject such as cancer and chemo. Perhaps that’s why this show means so much more. It shows that there are some people evil enough out there to gain profit out of someone else’s misery.
With the help of Lindsey’s psychiatrist, Dr. Charles, they are able to get Rival to talk and help them build a case against him as they get him for homicide and not just fraud. They use his ego against him and give Voight the pleasure of arresting the man who perhaps killed his wife. But the more he talks, the more it looks like he was working for the police. With nothing else to lose, Voight takes the stand.
Roman is still reeling from what happened in the last episode with the shooting. He still stands by the fact that there was a gun, but until the gun is found, he’s going to be in the hot seat. Burgess takes it upon herself (with the help of Platt) to find the gun. With saving Roman’s job as the most important thing, they are able to convince his brother to reveal where the gun is ‘anonymously’ giving the grieving mother the money.
In the next episode, the police look for someone who is after one of their own and does creative ways in order to do it.
