THE CHICAGO CODE “Gillis, Chase and Baby Face” Advance Review

THE CHICAGO CODE "Gillis, Chase & Babyface"

Tonight on FOX the third episode of THE CHICAGO CODE airs. I had the chance to watch it over the weekend and I was not disappointed. The Chicago Code is one show that keeps up the pace week after week and keeps my interest as well. As noted by Ciara in last week’s review of The Chicago Code, a smart villian is a scary villian and Alderman Gibbons is one scary guy. If you thought what he did last week was calculated and orchestrated, just wait until you see what he does this week. All I know is that I would not want to cross him ever. I guess the real question is, who is smarter? Right now all fingers point to Alderman, however, I have faith that Superintendent Colvin will catch up in no time.

Aside from the Alderman antics, we also get to see the flack that Wysocki is getting from his relationship with Colvin. As none of the cops truly know the nature of their relationship, they only assume the worst and stage a protest of solidarity with potentially dangerous results.

This episode also explores the dark side of going undercover. We all know that those police officers that go undercover enter a world different than their own, but when Liam shares his view in a voiceover and then we see a slice of his life, I realized just how hard it must be. When your friends are your enemies and your enemies are your friends, it is easy to get turned upside down. I have heard stories of undercover police getting lost in the crime world. I hope the show does not have that happen to Liam.

I still love the pairing of Wysocki with his not so new partner, Caleb. I think they make a terrific team. The relationship between Wysocki and Colvin is strong and drives the show even when they are not together. Then you have Alderman Gibbons. Whenever he and Colvin’s paths cross, it is electric. I think this show will continue to excel with every episode. What do you think?
