On this “Ruzek-centric” episode, we’re in a position to as soon as once more see the caring aspect of Adam for each his household, crew and even these he’s investigating. Actually, the care and concern he has for Samantha Beck on this episode is harking back to Jay Halstead with a number of girls he got here involved with in previous instances together with the sister of a veteran the crew investigated who was dealing medication and the spouse of a person who was left widowed with a son when her husband was harmless, however killed whereas in custody.
On this episode, Adam known as by a patrol buddy to take a look at a scene, and he uncovers that there was a meth lab within the constructing that leaked fumes, and the fuel ended up poisoning a household who lived within the constructing. When inspecting footage of the realm, they discover that 5 occasions within the final month, Samantha Beck was seen in entrance of the meth lab in a automobile with dummy plates. The crew had met Samantha Beck and father Richard a month in the past when Sam kidnapped, and they’re believed to be manufacturing and working large quantities of meth. As a result of he didn’t work the kidnapping case, Ruzek presents to go undercover.
The crew helps Ruzek to return to Samantha’s support in the future, and he presses her for a job afterwards. She introduces him to her father Richard, and Adam senses one thing is incorrect of their relationship. Adam has to move a number of “checks” and ultimately it’s time for him to help with a supply, however he will get a panicked name from Samantha that her son is lacking, and he goes to help her and the crew finally ends up lacking out on the bust. Adam blames himself for making the incorrect name however Kim tells him he made the appropriate name and Voight tells him to stay with Samantha and maintain getting near her.
All through this episode there are a number of issues that grew to become evident, a few of that are definitely issues now we have come to anticipate from Adam Ruzek. The primary is his love for his household. Originally of the episode we see him on the skating rink with Makayla and Kevin and Jordan, and he talks passionately about how he wants to guard Makayla from what has been occurring with Kim, and that she has already been by means of sufficient. There may be additionally an ideal scene to drag on our coronary heart strings the place he’s placing her to mattress and holding her hand. He has actually proved himself to be a unbelievable father determine for her and he’s in together with his entire coronary heart relating to his daughter. That’s our Dadam!
The second is his protecting instincts relating to these concerned in a case. He instantly was in a position to assess and really feel out the stress between Samantha Beck and her father Richard Beck, and instantly moved to safety mode and making an attempt to see what he might do to assist her and her son. He additionally was in a position to attempt to flush out what was happening along with her son when he disappeared, and advised Sam he would assist her any method he might, and that he was there to pay attention and he felt she wanted somebody to have the ability to speak to. Even in early seasons, Adam was at all times very empathetic to victims and people he was working to help – assume again to Season 2 episode 2 Adam, who confirmed unimaginable empathy and kindness to the younger lady who witnessed her father’s homicide whereas serving to her create a sketch of what the shooter appeared like. Or Season 7 episode 19 Adam, who confiscated a automobile to chase after a lady he noticed being kidnapped. And what about Season 8, episode 7 Adam, who does what he can to assist his informant who has a drug downside and helps him throughout a case. If there may be one factor that’s clear about Adam Ruzek, it’s that his protecting instincts are effectively honed and robust. We’ve seen this time and time once more with Kim additionally, which makes their coupling that rather more endearing contemplating her fierce independence.
One other merchandise of be aware is how Adam has to cope with the truth that Richard Beck is a white supremacist, and that he has to play alongside and in addition faux that he agrees with this viewpoint. Clearly that is one thing that bothers Adam to his core which he makes clear within the last scene, and contemplating that his daughter and greatest pal are each individuals of color, one can solely think about how tough it might be to play alongside. We clearly noticed how Adam felt about race points in Season 8 episode 8, when he and Atwater have to usher in and defend one other officer who’s concerned in a racially motivated capturing at a site visitors cease. There have been a number of events the place the subject of racial stress has come up through the years on this present, and the writers at all times do such an exquisite job in addressing very actual and tense matters which might be affecting police companies in immediately’s society.
Just a few different gadgets to notice on this episode:
– It’s great that Kim is in search of remedy now to assist along with her PTSD and that she has the assist of Adam and Kevin whereas she heals. The love that these two share, unstated or not, will maintain Burzek shippers smiling…and you possibly can not ignore when Kim says to Adam “Let’s go dwelling and see our daughter”!
– With the extent of investigative work of this crew, it’s nonetheless baffling how Burgess, Ruzek or Atwater haven’t but turn into detectives. Certainly one among them will write the examination and be promoted quickly.
– It appears that evidently Torres is becoming in properly with the crew and it’s nice to see how he’s creating throughout the crew and creating a willingness to leap in and supply data and ask questions or suggest theories. Additionally it is refreshing to have a brand new younger member of the crew once more, now that Burgess, Ruzek and Atwater have been there for 10 years.
I for one can not wait to see what’s in retailer subsequent for the Intelligence Workforce as they work to take down the Beck drug ring.
