Their killer will also be held responsible for the murder of a cop. The cop's death actually was a suicide.
To try to stay in front of his gambling debts he was stealing, which had been discovered. Gambling is an addiction and those with addictions often commit suicide.
Well, the elite unit of the Chicago police department has made a pact to keep the suicide a secret. Let that bad guy go down for one more murder, what the heck. And the cop's wife and two young boys will have the legacy of his mythical heroism as well as his pension.
Most pragmatists would likely approve of the cover up. However, the brilliance of the show's scripting is that it makes clear how high a price the elite squad will pay for the silence needed.
Already one hustler type reminds the head of the unit that favors are owned him. The weight of this decision will weigh on everyone who was in the loop in making it. They will live with the fear that the truth somehow will come out. And their own reputations could be destroyed.
The takeaway from this morally ambiguous show is that there are no free moves. Sure, you can make them. But they are being recorded in some kind of emotional, spiritual, and professional ledger. At any time, the wrong person can take a look at the contents of that book of compromised actions.
