Just in time for our one year anniversary (which is later this week – stay tuned for some surprises), I have finally completed the film and TV section of our gallery! More than 8,000 HD screen captures of Sophia in her final season on Chicago P.D. have now been added, completing this section of our site. Out of all of Sophia’s released projects, this was the only one we were missing – meaning you can now find pics and screen captures from every single one of Sophia’s TV episodes and films here at “Dear Sophia”.

I really enjoyed this season of the show, even though I wasn’t crazy about Erin’s farewell. It was hard to say goodbye to a character I’ve loved for so long, but I completely support and understand Sophia’s decision to leave the show – and I can’t wait to follow her on this new chapter of her life, with the upcoming “Surveillance”. Erin was – as always – brilliant in this season, and there’s a lot of really great screen captures in there, so make sure you head over to our gallery to start browsing all the episodes.

I’m going to start working on some pages dedicated to her shows up next, now that the gallery section is complete. Stay tuned for those!

Marie Claire – In the 18 months since Donald Trump was elected president, a handful of Hollywood actors have taken on part-time roles as political activists. Among them is former One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush, who can currently be found fighting the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh tooth and nail—protesting, petitioning, tweeting, and passionately siding with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault in the ’80s. (Bush has even been mocked by Breitbart, which is how you know you’ve made it in 2018. I’m not going to link to that.)

A lifelong activist, Bush has emerged as a major player in the resistance movement. She’s a founding member of TIME’s UP, delivered a speech at the Women’s March this year, partnered with The Outrage to create a clothing line that benefits causes like Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, and tweets almost constantly about Trump and the (many) people his administration marginalizes, to the point that she’s gotten death threats over it. So it should come as no surprise that Bush is vehemently against the confirmation of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, which looks like an increasingly likely prospect this weekend.

“To everyone saying “why did they wait? The timing feels suspect,” etc…Just remember Bill Cosby,” Bush wrote on Twitter on the eve of Dr. Ford’s testimony. “No one wanted to believe it about him. It was true. And he’s going to prison. I’d wager more women victimized by Kavanaugh will vome [sic] forward. Women feel safety in numbers.” (Indeed, two more women have accused Kavanaugh of assault since Dr. Ford stepped forward—claims Kavanaugh denies.)

Like other stars with huge fan bases independent of politics—Bush, of course, starred as the sharp, fierce Brooke Davis in the CW’s One Tree Hill, a character often described as an OG feminist—Bush actively encourages her social-media following to practice activism in their own lives, from registering to vote to showing up to support women. “I’m a social liberal,” she told Refinery29 in December. “I believe in equality for all…I believe we should smash the patriarchy and systemic racism and actually make healthcare more easily accessible than weaponry.”

Central to Bush’s belief system is her feminism, which she proudly went on the record about in 2014. “I don’t think there was ever a time where I wasn’t [a feminist],” she told Teen Vogue in 2016, just before she went out on the campaign trail with Hillary Clinton. In 2017, she quit the NBC drama Chicago PD, hinting that her departure was related to a negative atmosphere for Bush on set. She told Refinery29:

“I couldn’t do that job anymore…[I told them that] if something really drastic doesn’t change, I’m leaving at the end of the year…I’m giving you 23 episodes’ notice. There will be no conversation in which I was hysterical, emotional, in which I was being a quote “irrational female” or whatever you want to put on it. I’m literally sitting in front of you, like, cool as a cucumber.”

Bush has also gone on the record about how being a woman on the set of One Tree Hill became unexpectedly devastating, joining the rest of the show’s female cast to accuse creator Mark Schwahn of sexual harassment and emotional abuse. (Schwahn has not commented publicly on the claims.) “Why am I supposed to suffer and kill my own career because somebody else can’t keep their dick in their pants?” Bush later said in an interview with Sirius XM.

Now, in the run-up to the midterm elections, Bush is amping up her activism as much as her time allows: Even though she just scored a leading role in new show Surveillance, she tweets almost exclusively about politics and the “blue wave” she and other activists are pushing for in November.

New showrunner Rick Eid also discusses Halstead’s struggles in the premiere episode and Voight’s “toughest opponent yet”.[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Wednesday’s season five premiere of Chicago P.D., “Reform.”]

Det. Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush) is gone but definitely not forgotten. Chicago P.D. opened its season five premiere with a tribute to the now-former member of the Intelligence Unit, a series of clips showing everything from her recounting when Voight (Jason Beghe) and his late wife took her in off the streets as a troubled teen to her rollercoaster relationship with partner and beau Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) to, finally, her accepting a job with the FBI in New York from the season four finale, just as Halstead was about to propose.

The first new season five footage also hit hard on her exit, first with Halstead going back to her now-empty apartment and finding a picture of the two of them together, and then with Voight telling a stranger about how difficult it was to say goodbye to the woman he thought of as a daughter.

Even as Halstead dealt with the blowout from accidentally shooting a little girl during a bust, he asked Voight if he had heard from Lindsay. The answer? A definitive no. “Look, it was time for her to move on,” Voight told him. “You need to make peace with it.”

And with that, the new Chicago P.D. — after all the season premiere is titled “Reform” — got down to business. The hour set up new tensions between Voight and his boss (Esai Morales) as well as the new independent auditor, his old partner Denny Woods (Mykelti Williamson). The premiere also set the stage for Antonio’s (Jon Seda) full-time return to Intelligence (following the cancellation of Chicago Justice) and also began to lay the groundwork for Halstead’s new partnership with Det. Upton (Tracy Spiridakos), even as he struggled to cope with not only Lindsay’s absence but the fact that he accidentally shot and killed a little girl.

There was also some movement on the romantic front, when Burgess (Marina Squerciati) informed ex-fiance Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger) that she was seeming someone new despite their kiss midway through season four.

New Chicago P.D. showrunner Rick Eid answered all of THR’s burning questions about Burgess and Ruzek’s “intense romantic connection,” Voight’s “toughest opponent yet,” and to get the behind-the-scenes story on Lindsay’s “meaningful” farewell.

The season five premiere opens with flashbacks of Lindsay’s time on P.D. You could have easily gone the Law & Order route and not made mention of her exit, so why did you think it was best to acknowledge her absence and in this way? Why was this the right way to start the episode?

We knew the unit would feel Lindsay’s absence in a meaningful way. Voight saw her as a surrogate daughter, Halstead wanted to propose to her last season, and she’s been an integral part of Intelligence from the start. So it felt right to acknowledge this new reality in the premiere.

We also see Voight getting emotional when talking with someone about Lindsay leaving Chicago. Can we assume this is some kind of therapy? Will he be going back? What makes him open up in such a way about her leaving?

Voight is a complicated character who has a hard time opening up to friends and colleagues. He’s more likely to open up to a perfect stranger. The woman he meets with in the premiere is more of a surrogate therapist than a professional psychologist. He may visit with this woman again. You’ll have to watch.
