Guilt, Grief and Unwanted Visitors Will Shake Up ‘Chicago P.D.’
Grief, poor choices and accepting responsibility all take their turn in Chicago P.D.’s Intelligence Unit this season, beginning with Det. Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush). Filled with guilt for not being able to prevent the murder of her protégée Nadia (Stella Maeve), she’s determined to quit the force and shows it by reverting to her hard-partying ways. “We’ve set up a triangle between Lindsay, her manipulative mother, Bunny [Markie Post], and her boss, Sgt. Hank Voight [Jason Beghe],” executive producer Matt Olmstead says. But when a friend in the unit is being held hostage, Lindsay agrees to help.
While her partner, Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer), tries to convince Lindsay to return to work full time, Voight isn’t sure that he wants her back, especially since she had already left once for a task-force gig. “He wants her to prove that she is fit to come back to the job,” Olmstead reveals.
Outside the precinct, Det. Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas) will have to tell his family about the daughter he never knew he had. And Voight, too, must deal with someone from his past who could shake up his life and potentially damage his already shaky reputation: his former cellmate, Eddie Little (Clancy Brown), who wants a debt repaid.
