What happens when strong women set out to claim back their power?
You get a really badass episode of Chicago PD Season 5 Episode 15.
Burgess and Upton took control of the narrative, while subtly supporting the #MeToo movement in a way that resonated with every woman, and hopefully, every decent man.
Intelligence got wind of an Initiation Day led by Pena, a local street gangster who became "crazier" in prison.
The initiation portion? Raping and killing a 17-year-old girl, and leaving behind her body in an abandoned house.
I've seen some pretty gruesome images, but the sight of this poor girl will forever haunt my dreams. How many women, of various ages, have to become victims? Time's up!
Halstead: That's one hell of an initiation.
Upton: What kind of animal does something like this?
Antonio: What kind of animal makes someone do something like this?
Permalink: What kind of animal makes someone do something like this? Added: February 28, 2018 Burgess is especially triggered by this case because of her sister, who was drugged and raped on Chicago PD Season 4 Episode 19.
The series hasn't really mentioned the case until now, but considering her sister is still dealing with therapy while the rapist received a light one-year sentence, it needed to be revisited.
Can you feel the rage burning within you too?
Burgess was so proud of herself for taking charge of the case, as she should be. Women haven't really had their moment in Intelligence. Until this season, it was strictly the Lindsay show, but now, Burgess and Upton are leading the movement.
As I was watched the episode, I found myself rooting for Q. I asked my fiancee if it was bad that I wanted to cheer her on, but then Burgess reassured me that many women probably feel a ting of satisfaction knowing that for once, a rapist got dealt with properly.
Halstead: Hmm.. okay, that's one way to take care of rapists.
Ruzek: You gotta be kidding me. They cut 'em off.
Permalink: You gotta be kidding me. They cut 'em off. Added: February 28, 2018 I obviously don't condone murder, but Burgess was right — Q wasn't killing choir boys, he was getting rid of monsters.
And one less monster on the street, who thinks he has the right to a woman's body, isn't something to lose sleep over.
Was it brutal? Beyond. But no more brutal than rape.
Halstead and Ruzek's had the best expressions when they waltzed into the house only to find the suspects with their genitalia chopped off. You reap what you sow.
Q was a cold-blooded killer. She was castrating men and protecting future victims until she could finally get her power back for being raped at the age of 14.
When she mentioned she was a victim herself, I kind of figured her rapist was Pena, the man enabling all these guys in the first place.
If you want to own a neighborhood or a territory, you have to break its soul first.
