I don't even know if I should bother being upset over the use of Jay's wife as a trigger for him...I'm honestly jut happy that we're finally looking into his past. The promo and summary for 4x18 has a lot of focus on Voight though, so I hope the writers don't delay a Linstead conversation for too long.
I’m giving myself a couple of days to be upset but, yeah, eventually I am going to have to accept the fact that it’s canon. And, by “accept”, I mean that I will forever recognize it was a poor decision that the writers made (as was Erin’s recovery arc, Hank possibly being Erin’s bio-dad, the fallout from Burgess’ trial, the whole murder and moving a body thing, etc.), but it was their decision nonetheless and it is not something I can change at this point.
Trying to adopt your more positive attitude because you’re absolutely right. We should be happy the writers are finally exploring his past, including the drama with his dad.
Yeah, the promo and summary are focused on Voight, but we know Linstead filmed a scene in the break room for the next episode so that should (hopefully) touch on what happened. And I’ve heard rumblings about Voight stepping in to tell them to get it together.
Not sure how long it will take for Jay to sort himself out or to let Erin in, but I’m okay with the writers taking their time and slowly building it up. Jay having some serious trauma in background has been teased for four seasons now so I’d rather have it done right than rushed.
Not that I have faith the writers won’t do that.
