Chicago PD Season 3 Episode 3 Review: Actual Physical Violence

at .  Updated at .

Desperate times call for desperate measures, and most parents would do anything to save a child in danger. 

On Chicago PD Season 3 Episode 3, that means pulling a gun in a police station and taking a hostage. 

It may not be the best way to go about it, but it's hard to argue with the results. 

Taken Hostage - Chicago PD

Mouse gets his chance to shine as he bravely stands up to the distraught father. He easily gets him talking, and when the time comes, manages to disarm him before anyone has a chance to shoot him. 

And after all that? Mouse even removes the bullets from the gun so the dad's charge would be reduced. No hard feelings on his part! He knows he's not a killer and his daughter is going to need him now more than ever. I don't know what would happen to that poor girl if he was sent to multiple years in jail over this. 

That doesn't mean Frazier doesn't deserve any punishment. We can't have people pulling guns on cops every time they feel ignored, but I'm glad he won't be punished too severely. 

Voight and Lindsay are now aware of the problems Bunny is causing. She has evidence that Voight lied about witnessing a murder when he was never there. Lindsay tries to talk her out of it, but the damage has already been done and a violent criminal was set free. 

It seems pretty safe to say that Beckett is the one who blew up Voight's car, nearly killing his son and grandson in the process. Voight is going to be on a rampage for revenge. I would not want to be on the other end of his anger. 

Voight: So what's this for?
Dunn: Scare tactics.
Voight: I've heard of those. Me, I prefer actual physical violence.

I mean, we've seen what he does to suspects to get information out of them. When he gets his hands on Beckett, it won't be pretty. 

When he's done with him, Bunny's next. She may want to think about leaving town right about now. 

It is great to see Lindsay talking to Dr. Platt, even if she is resisting opening up to him. She really does need to talk to someone about everything she's gone through recently. Hopefully he continues his efforts with her. 

Olinsky finally comes clean to his family about his daughter. Unfortunately, it doesn't go well and his wife asks him to leave. That's a tough pill to swallow, but they'll work it out. Will his daughter eventually move in with them? I have a feeling that's where this is headed. 

I don't know why he would tell her to go to Antonio's boxing gym and not bother to give Antonio a heads up. Did he not expect her to tell him she was his daughter? That whole thing is just weird. One by one everyone is finding out about her, it's just a matter of time before the rest of the team knows, too. 

Some final thoughts: 

  • Will was about to spill something to Lindsay about Jay at the hospital. Any thoughts on what he was about to say? 
  • I loved that Lindsay called Benson from SVU. I'm looking forward to the next major crossover. 
  • How cute is Voight's grandson? 

If you missed any of the action, you can watch Chicago PD online and catch up.
