3) Almost getting Voight and Price shot

Not only has Denny Woods constantly pushed his own agenda, he’s managed to make a few of the Intelligence Unit’s cases worse throughout the season. There’s no better example of that than the episode “Fallen” when he nearly got both Voight and Alderman Ray Price (recurring guest star Wendell Pierce) shot.

Voight and Price, who had a beef of their own but were able to act like mature adults and put that aside (something Woods could take a lesson from!), teamed up in this episode to try and coax out their murder suspect. They were able to resolve the situation peacefully and convince him to give himself up.

That was, until the three of them stepped outside and found out that Woods had shown up with a half-dozen armed officers. Naturally, the already short-tempered Kane freaked out again and took Price as a hostage before Voight was able to defuse the situation a second time. But it was Woods crashing the proverbial party, entirely of his own volition and making it a way bigger deal than was necessary, that almost got Price dropped and could’ve gotten Voight shot as well.

We get it, Denny: you hate Voight and you’d probably be happy if he died. But putting other people in the crosshairs too? That’s a bit much. In fact, showing up with a horde of SWAT cops is a bit much. But this is a great example of how Denny Woods can’t calm down and seems to only know one way of working: smashing things into pieces. Plus, how great was it that Mykelti Williamson could pop up and in less than a minute still make us want to slap him?
