'The Chicago Code' 1.08 'Wild Onions' Review

It feels awesome to have  The Chicago Code  back with new episodes. (Even though I watched the last two weeks of reruns anyway.) While the trailer played up that this episode is set during a heat wave, that really just provided the backdrop for solid stories for each of our characters this week. No games, no gimmicks, just good TV. I find it adorable that Jarek is picking up Teresa every morning to drive her to work. They clearly deserve each other, and I mean that as high praise. He's handpicked some potential new drivers for her, and she finally picks one - ex-Marine Ray Bidwell (Warren Kole). When there's a robbery call in their vicinity, Teresa decides they'll take care of it. "Do I look like I wanna wait in the car?" she tells Ray, shortly before defusing the situation. (Best. Boss. Ever.) Though she's reluctant to warm to Ray, he proves himself more than capable as an equal partner to her, if not in title than in personality, at least. I love their final scene together, as Ray calls Teresa out on selecting him because he was the only candidate without a spouse or children. He knows she's afraid to do damage to another family. Now she has a chance to move forward past her grief. I still miss Antonio, but Ray won me over with that speech of his, and I think that his relationship with Teresa is going to be plenty interesting.

THE CHICAGO CODE “Wild Onions” Review

THE CHICAGO CODE  "Wild Onions" Season 1 Episode 8 – It’s one of the hottest summers in Chicago and hot weather leads to a rise in crime which means the police force is stretched thin, so thin that the Chief of Police decides to take on a drug store  robbery herself. The drug store robbery was not the worst idea, but Colvin’s "something like that" cool-as-a-cucumber line was just missing Horatio’s sunglasses and wink. Her new driver  is a cool character whose only problem is his totally unrealistic dedication to his job-dedication as in he does not sleep.  The Chicago Code  would get a lot more exciting if he turned into a Cylon. How awesome would that be? The lecture Wysocki gave Evers about promising to get the guy who killed a kid’s father was just awfully redundant: of course Evers made a mistake. He knew it the moment it slipped out of his mouth. Does Wysocki really need to pound the guilt into him with the whole orphan shtick? And why would Wysocki guilt Evers into making his CI count?

The Chicago Code Review: "Wild Onions"

The heat makes emotions run high both inside and outside the police department in "Wild Onions" as a record breaking heat wave hits Chicago.  When we first met Jarek Wysocki in the pilot, I really liked him. While, he had a lot of the classic "shoot from the hip, follow my own rules" personality built into him; he also had some uniqueness in that he didn’t like cussing and he knew right away if someone was going to be a fit as his partner.
