I didn’t realize this is in the 10pm slot. Is that the same as last season? I was looking forward to watching tonight, but it will have to be tomorrow!

I rewatched the season 2 finale last night, looking forward to seeing how this plays out. Nolan was making some pretty stupid moves, he's going to need to do better or get some help.

I thought they might play that out for a few episodes. A little more woke preaching than I needed.

It was good, but everything was resolved very quickly. However, it’s pretty apparent why Nolan is pretty much staying a Rookie because of the discipline he received at the end. All the good he did was thrown out the window.

Commander West screaming at Harper was a pretty intense scene. I’ve had a boss yell at me as loud as that. The look in his face was intense.

I'm glad they've (so far) kept covid out of the show. Enough are already slapping us in the face with it every episode.

Agreed! It was not only the best scene of the episode, but made us see West in a new light. He always seemed a little shady, but maybe it’s because of his role. I hope we get more of that this season!

I am disappointed, but not surprised, everything was wrapped up in one episode. Same thing used to happen on Castle all the time.

For me, it's because the actor usually plays a bad guy (and well) like his roll on SWAT. Hope they make him more of a regular character here.

I am somewhat glad they wrapped that up fast. I thought it would take 2 episodes, but I was afraid of multiple episodes around
1) Nolan goes to jail and does "Nolan things" in prison
2) Meanwhile the team (a few at first and more later) fight to uncover the truth and get Nolan out in addition to the normal stuff they do and their personal lives

COVID didn't exist in the last episode of Season 2 and this episode took place the next day, so . . .

Michael Beach also played a bad guy on Chicago PD last year as well as his role on SWAT. It's role not roll.

Crossover with The Good Doctor where an inmate in the prison Nolan is being held gets an incurable disease. They send Shaun in for a consultation and a riot breaks out with Shaun being taken hostage and pisses people off with his brutal honesty. Head of a prison gang gets shanked, Shaun performs emergency surgery while Nolan is talking down the members of his gang from killing the opposing gang-members who they also have hostage.

I wonder if the letter of reprimand rebuke at the end, saying Nolan wouldn’t be anything more than a beat cop, was a backhand to Castle when they tried to spin it off into the PI show.

I didn't think of that. I assumed it was just a means to make the show title somewhat relevant still.

Yes, but look at somebody like Lopez. How long has she been on the force before even being eligible for detective?

Id just had for them to have said detective Nolan come season 6.

This wrapped up a little too quickly and neatly. But still fun.

Is Ali Larter then officially gone? I know she was attached to a pilot. I really liked her characters chemistry with Nolan.

This week’s episode...uh..

I really hope this isn’t the direction they’re taking the show because I won’t be watching much longer if it is.

Which part? My wife is getting pissed also about some themes shows are now incorporating. I am like shows about cops should have this stuff because it is real life.
