Let’s talk about Wednesday night’s TV!

CHICAGO MED: Okay, Maggie and Grant were playing with fire, and even if it hadn’t been in the millions of promos, of course they were going to end up in a crash. But, my God, Maggie has already seen what withholding information from her husband has done, and I can’t imagine he’s going to react particularly well when he finds out about her crash after joyriding with her ex.

I’m happy for Ethan and April, but, yes, their engagement is incredibly bittersweet. I’m happy it seems like they’ll get a good on-screen ending, but they reunited like five seconds ago, got engaged off-screen, and now are getting married in three weeks?! Hopefully we get a lovely, drama-free wedding. (I know, I know, the odds of it are slim. But let me hope.)

THE MASKED SINGER: With all due respect to Adam Corolla, the Avocado should have been the first one home, and I have no clue how he didn’t get booted first. (The Bride was also always going to go home, too, but I assumed they’d at least progress to the head-to-head.)

CHICAGO FIRE: Good lord, poor Gallo. I can’t imagine the trauma of trying to talk a suicidal man safely off a ledge and then him jumping anyway. And to be clear, as thankfully the show was, too, it was not Gallo’s fault. But what a gut-punch of a scene/sequence. (The entire Firehouse needs like a month off at this point to just decompress from the non-stop trauma.)

Speaking of trauma, I’m glad the show is still finding natural ways to incorporate Violet’s grief over Hawkins’ death. You don’t just snap out of that grief, even if you’re back to work and things are quasi-back to normal.

(Trudy for absolutely freaking everything.)

CHICAGO P.D.: Before we get into the meat of the episode, let’s be clear: Adam was right, that shrine was creepy as hell.

I feel just awful for Kim. We’ve seen her deal a bit with the trauma post-shooting, but PTSD doesn’t just snap off, and it makes sense she’d have days that just do not work out right. We know she and Adam are great partners, but it was lovely to see him being so supportive, but walking the very delicate line of trusting her, yet not coddling her. His safety also depends on her being okay (and they’re lucky her forgetting her gun didn’t backfire in a major way), but if he pushes her too hard, she could very well shut down and not let him know when things get bad in the future.

I’m really grateful we’re getting scenes of substance between Kim and Hailey. So many of the stories in the past few seasons kept them isolated from each other—frequently because Hailey, Jay, and Voight were dealing with stuff they kept from the rest of the unit–but their dynamic is interesting and feels like it’s ripe to be explored properly now. And, hey, they already got a big piece of the puzzle to hopefully take Sean down.

(Also, how freaking cute were the glimpses into Burzek’s home life? Makayla being so happy, secure, and loved was a nice little balm to the darkness of the rest of the episode.)
