In the last episode, the unit investigate a bag of drugs and a dead body that wash ashore in Chicago. Obviously where there are drugs, there is a drug lord. Voight thinks that he might be able to take down a big name until he throws his nephew under the bus to protect his name. In personal news, Halstead finally let’s go of the fight with Mouse and helps him re-enlist. Tay is returning back to her old precinct as Platt loses the battle. Which means that Burgess is going to be getting a new partner. The fourth in four seasons.
This week, Olinsky’s friend is in the hot seat in the show titled ‘Some Friend’. Burgess and her new partner, Sorensen, find a dead body in the basement of a baseball player whose father is friends with Olinsky. How far will he go to protect his friend? Will he pull a Voight and screw over justice in order to help him?
Right out of the gate, Olinsky is having problems keeping his personal feelings out of it. And of course he uses Voight’s past to help push his own agenda. His history with Jake, Billy Burke (Twilight series) goes deep and he’s going to stop at nothing to prove his friend’s innocence.
Jake was friends with the victim and tried to help her get away from her pimp. When the boss lady comes in, she kicks Olinsky off the case which means he’s gonna take matters in his own hands.
When they find Jake’s personal items, they find video files on his laptop that are of him talking to the girls trying to help them. It helps lead them to her pimp, Saint. But he’s not the killer. No turns out it was Jake. He found her stealing from him and he snapped.
Burgess’s new partner is one of those people who try to hard. He doesn’t mind that Burgess takes the lead and he loves to suck up to Platt. Hopefully she can keep personal feelings out of this one. Maybe date someone who is not a cop.
Their first case (that we see of them together) has them hunting down a sandwich thief. This is mainly because Platt wanted lunch. But they find that the woman responsible was a cop.
In non case news, but very important, someone sends Lindsey flowers and Halstead is not at all happy about it. Whoever sent it, it’s gonna cause a wrinkle in Halstead’s plan, unless of course he’s playing her. Wouldn’t put that past him. But it gets weirder when she gets random call from a number from Kansas. Could it be possible that it was her father?
Next week, we get the Fall finale and a 2-hour special as someone is targeting the CPD and they try and find the person responsible before it’s too late
