Let’s talk about Wednesday night’s TV!

CHICAGO MED: Oh my goodness, the FIRE people showing up to deal with Bert’s fire…and then making it clear they were there for her? Oh, my heart. (And, look, there are times when having Generic Firefighter or Generic Medic would work in a small scene like that, but given what this means to/for Goodwin, having people she and we care about to be an extra cheerleader? It means the world.)

Crockett opting to not do the surgery was a heartbreaking twist. I was trying to prep myself for him going forward full speed and it ultimately failing anyway, but him making the likely smart decision and not giving the kid the life-saving organ…ouch. (And he was right! That child’s body would not have withstood the recovery process of the surgery and it might have killed him faster. But ow. And I do wonder if they’ll come back to this or we should just, uh, imagine the tragic fallout.)

And Ripley telling Asher the truth about his past and her kissing him? Love it, love them.

THE MASKED SINGER: The crazy thing about this show is when actual legends are eliminated in favor of (potentially) non-professional singers. It’s part of the game, but still always surreal. Sorry to Thelma Houston, who deserved better than placing third.

CHICAGO FIRE: Wow, it hit me when Violet was channeling Boden to give a supportive speech that we’re really about to lose him. It hurts, man.

The Chloe and Cruz drama worked for me, even if it was quasi-unexpected. The drama and trauma of what happened to Mouch was a year ago, but it made the danger very, very, very real for her. Of course she was going to be scared and traumatized by it. (And I’m very glad they didn’t do something crazy like break them up or have her issue an ultimatum.) And I’m glad she got to see and experience tangible proof of the good he’s doing at work, about the lives he’s saving.

CHICAGO P.D.: This is not actually a surprise—he was great last time, too—but my goodness, Jesse Lee Soffer is a fantastic director. There were so many moments I wanted to rewind the episode and examine the choices he made because they were so visually stunning.

For as deep as Voight has been in tracking down this serial killer, it didn’t really hit me that the guy (hi, Frank?) would target him the way he did. It makes sense! But yikes…and good luck to the team as they try and save him next week.

I’m so curious (and nervous) about how Hailey leaves the show next week. Right now, she seems content…or as content as possible. I so deeply hope she can leave safe and with some element of hope/a happy ending because she deserves it. (And please let people stop dying right in front of her.)
