Let’s talk about Wednesday night’s TV!

CHICAGO MED: I’m honestly surprised we didn’t get more clear-cut exits for April and Natalie. While it absolutely made sense that April’s would be tied to her new program and Natalie’s would be tied to stealing drugs for her mom, we didn’t see either woman actually quit/leave. Which, honestly, is a bit of a bummer…it would have been bittersweet, but we also got no goodbyes. For characters that have been such a part of the show’s DNA from the start, it’s sad. (I guess the closest we got was April talking about her love for Ethan, but even there…did that mean she wanted to revive their relationship? Are we going to see them long-distance?)

The weird side effect of knowing about the exits also means that the cliffhanger isn’t really one. Natalie won’t be back at Med. I am curious if Will will be punished, too, because he also lied for her…

THE MASKED SINGER: Well, I wasn’t surprised by any of the people revealed, but I was shocked by who won. (Sorry, Nick Lachey.)

CHICAGO FIRE: Well, they’ve gotten out of trickier situations, but that cliffhanger sure was grim. I’m hoping everyone will make it out the situation okay, but it would be really cruel to kill Severide or Cruz right now when they’re newly engaged and about to be a dad, respectively.

I am glad Brett and Casey finally got their act together. After seasons of (understandably) dancing around their feelings for each other, I’m happy their feelings for each other are out there and now they can explore what the heck they can be.

SEAL TEAM: I’m very glad it was not, but in many ways, it felt like this was a series finale. I’m so glad Ray finally acknowledged this PTSD, and Neil Brown Jr. was fantastic in the scenes where he admitted it and later reunited with his estranged wife.

And there was some happiness! Clay got married! Jason had some lovely moments with his daughter. And while Sonny and Lisa weren’t exactly back on the same page, they at least seemed to be lighter.

But I’m happy there will be more. And I’m very curious to see how the streaming platform might change how the show going forward.

CHICAGO P.D.: While this absolutely felt like a move building for all season, I’m so curious if or how the show gets out of its Voight situation. Voight has struggled with reform all year, but for the most part, he was changing. And it makes sense he would go off the deep end with Burgess at risk. And there was the cushion of Upton killing the suspect because he lunged for Voight’s gun and was trying to kill him.


The whole argument has been that doing bad things for the right reason isn’t enough. And this was that times, like, a million. Is this the start of Voight backsliding into his old ways? Or was this a blip he–and we—are supposed to move past? And can Upton move past it? Especially since in her panic and grief, she immediately went home and proposed to Halstead, which is sure to have some fallout.

I am glad Burgess appears to be okay/on the road to recovery. Ruzek falling apart made sense, but it was also absolutely beautiful that Upton was able to bring him back to Earth by reminding him he couldn’t lose it; Makayla needs him.

But, really, the whole cast was fantastic in the finale. The hour was intense and absolutely gut-wrenching.

A MILLION LITTLE THINGS: Ugh, poor, poor Sophie. I’m glad she got some answers, but she’s going through so much. I hope things can get at least a little easier for her, soon. And at least she has a good support system.

I really do love how the show has been handling the darker issues with Regina’s medical issues, the BLM documentary, and Eddie and Katherine’s split. Regina’s mom advocating for her? Perfect. Rome helping Tyrell with his interview set-up and framing? Lovely, especially as Rome expressed his quasi-paternal feelings towards the young man. And Katherine worrying about Eddie watching Theo because of his addiction and Gary rallying to support them both? Incredible. Katherine isn’t wrong, but Eddie shouldn’t be penalized. And I’m so glad Gary is stepping up to be a go-between/supervisor/helper.
