FOX’s The Chicago Code Recap (01×11): Black Sox
FOX’s The Chicago Code turns up the heat as its first season comes to a close; with just one episode left, the stakes are high and the plot thickens.
Detectives Wysocki (Jason Clarke) and Evers (Matt Lauria) are called to the scene of a brutal murder in Boystown wherein the victim’s blood is smeared across the window of a car to form the citation of a Bible verse from Leviticus — clearly labeling the murder as a hate crime. The victim is a high standing member of the gay community, however, and the local alderman is outraged and demands that the murderer be caught and convicted of a hate crime, not just homicide or any other charges he might be guilty of. But the murder victim isn’t the only victim; a second blood sample is taken from the car. When Wysocki and Evers find the second victim in a nearby hospital with a knife wound to the neck, they think that he will lead them to the murderer, but he won’t risk his wife and young daughter learning of his homosexual liason. The possible murderer he points them toward is proven innocent, and ultimately Wysocki and Evers put two and two together, discovering the second victim as the murderer, a closeted homosexual who, scorned by the deceased man, lost his grip on his own reality.
Meanwhile, Alderman Gibbons (Delroy Lindo) is trying to cover his tracks before Teresa (Jennifer Beals) can put the missing link in place that ties him to many layers of corruption throughout the city. Teresa is busy building other alliances at City Hall in hopes of finally taking Gibbons down.
Enter the melodrama: Vonda Wysocki (Devin Kelley) receives her father’s old watch in the mail and traces it back to a woman who says her life was saved by Vonda’s dad. It is revealed also that Vonda’s father was cheating on Vonda’s mother with this woman, and Vonda’s world is shaken when Jarek confirms all of it and tries to reason with her. In the midst of the tears and shouting, Vonda reveals that she’s sleeping with Isaac, and Jarek erupts in anger. At the end of the episode, Wysocki comes clean with his ex-wife Deena and confesses that he is still in love with her. She gently tells him that it’s over between them and that they won’t be sleeping together anymore. Wysocki goes home to fiancée Elena, and calls off the wedding. At least Wysocki is picking up the pieces of his life, though it’s a little too late.
