Finally got around to watching the last episode, and this one, unlike Fire, could definitely pass as decent season finale.
When they give Atwater storylines, LaRoyce Hawkins continuously knocks them out of the park with his acting. The only issue is that the only storylines the character seems to get deal with racial issues. And I really think that's stereotyping his character. He's basically the token black man on the team, used for undercover buys and the race issues. He could do so much more if given decent storylines that just have to do with cases, regardless of race. It's a real waste of the character.
Doyle got what was coming to him. No tears shed for him. Live by racial profiling, you die by racial profiling. Not sure why Kevin didn't tell the full story of what happened to the officer at the beginning. It took until after they caught the guys and he heard their accounts of what happened that he finally had to give the truth. So glad that Atwater still went through with telling COPA the full story, even after learning of what the blowback would be. I actually thought he might lose his nerve after Price told him he isn't MLK, and he'd be crazy to take this on. But he stuck to his guns. It was probably because he went with the party line to clear Doyle of the shooting last season, and didn't want to make that mistake again.
And that last scene was straight gold. All those cops sitting in hiding on Atwater's home and Kevin ready to take them all on. That looked like an entire precinct of cops, or heck of a lot of cops loyal to Doyle and his family. It's going to be interesting to see how Kevin and Intelligence handle this next season.
I wish real cops had the guts to call out the racist cops amongst them and not let them slide. I've heard of so many cops that shoot unarmed victims that had prior history of profiling or racism, and they were never dealt with. Or worse yet, other officers cover up evidence of an officer's wrongful shooting, like we saw with Jason Van Dyke.
