You knew that guy was going to have something to do with it as soon as Jay would  not hear of it.  Getting a weird vibe with Hailey and Jay.  Did last week too.  Seems beyond normal partner stuff.  Really weird that her and Adam weren't in any scenes together.  At the end I expected  a shot of Adam watching the two of them walking away.  Adam seems like he could get goofy if she gets involved with Halstead.

I guess we need to be careful when we ask for Atwater to be used more. Gulp. I was worried about him for awhile.

Why are the terrorists always American soldiers  and never the people who actually set off bombs?

Both the soldier and the dead Muslim guy were terrorists I'm not sure I'm following.

The main bomber is an American Soldier.  Not the racist radical Iman. How many American Soldiers set off bombs. I would guess none. This is typical of Dick Wolf shows. The bad guy is almost always a white guy. Preferably a businessman or a Christian.

Someone should do a compilation and see how the crime stats line up with how they are portrayed on Dick Wolf shows.

Of course I can think of one American Soldier who was a murderous terrorist.

Major Nidal Hassan.

Where are the ripped from the headlines shows about him?

Seeing as on this show there are a ton of criminals of color.. And because after an exhausting election cycle im tryna give ppl the benefit of doubt.. I'll assume they meant when the story has to do with radical Islamist terrorism.. Shows sometimes have another layer of bad guy behind the mad bombers and that layer is an evil white guy... While that particular trope has shown up more in recent times.. Its nowhere near as prevalent as the "Mad Brown Bomber "...  But like with many things lately it seems not showing particular ppl in a certain light all the time is seen as "an agenda" and all the other buzzwords

maybe people are sick of Muslims always being portrayed as terrorists in movies and tv shows and white men as the heroes? Go watch every movie that is set in IRAQ. who are the good guys? The soldiers. So white men have no business being upset about being portrayed as evil.

My point exactly.. I agree.. What I was saying was the original poster to who I was replying to.. Seems to have an issue with the scenario that behind the Muslim terrorist or instead of one.. Is some white villian.. And my response was.. Even if that scenario has popped up a bit more recently.. Its nowhere near as common as the "mad brown bomber"

When it was revealed Atwater was the guy who was undercover, I thought, "Yes, an Atwater episode."  Then it went to hell and turned into a Jay has issues episode.  That seems to be what the show is anymore - Jay, Ruzek, Burgess, and Haley have issues.  Then in the season finale, Voight gets to have angst and all his issues dredged up again.  {face palm}

I did like that Atwater was so calm, and handled things like a pro instead of going off the deep end like - Halstead, Ruzek, etc. have a tendency to do.

I didn't like the implication that because the radical Iman hadn't killed anybody he was a good guy.  He preaches hate.  In all the suppressed minorities he was yakking about, he forgot a very important one, in every country in the Middle East, and several other countries - the group who is the most oppressed is - women.  And the religion he represents is doing a lot of the oppressing.

I think next week is the Atwater episode, where Atwater loses his 'CPD virginity' - so strap yourself in and lets see how they screw that up.

Yea his unseen until now love interest.. Whos probably not a cop so she"ll prob be gone soon.. Again this episode just kinda glossed over how the homeland guy was roughing Kevin ( and I assume all the other ppl who got detained)  up... They made a lil mention of it when the imam got free.. I wonder if the imam will pop up again... Anthony Azzizi is pretty well known and he didn't do much this episode.. And they were kinda ambiguous on if hes a bad dude or not.. Def a fire brand  and.. And that kinda fire and anti-capatilist talk could get someone revved up to do something very stupid

I am curious if you stopped commenting last night when the news broke of the white male former marine killing many people?

No. I stopped because my posts have been deleted before in other threads as there is viewpoint discrimination here and I dont want to be deplatformed as has been the case for alternative viewpoints.

No point in it.

I was watching this last night and had sort of shied away from online news because my stomach hurts enough already ... so only this morning (daily dose of news-gathering) did the irony of the timing hit me.

(Read that AND all the news that the specific area to which Mr. Snappy and I were planning on moving in 2020 may be reduced to ashes by tonight -- pass the Xanax please.).
