Well, this is awkward: During this Tuesday’s crossover between Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. (starting at 9/8c on NBC), Severide will find himself on the wrong side of the law… and his ex-girlfriend.

“We thought a perfect character-based crossover would be Severide looking like he had committed vehicular homicide, and Lindsay being the one that has to come and arrest him, and all the ramifications of that,” Fire executive producer Derek Haas previews.

The idea for the special event originally started out as an episode of P.D. “We had this really great script about… high-end car-theft rings,” P.D. EP Matt Olmstead shares. “It was right there; it was all good. We were just looking for that personal connection.”

And they found it in the rescue squad lieutenant. “When we read that [script], we thought, ‘Oh, what if we had Severide drinking because of the complications to Anna, the girl lying in the hospital bed?” Haas describes. Combine intoxication with a somewhat checkered past, and Severide is looking awfully guilty of driving under the influence.

The firefighter was also an ideal crossover candidate because “we knew that we hadn’t overused that character too much on P.D.” Olmstead says. “He hadn’t really been around since that romance with Lindsay” several seasons ago.

Plus, the exes’ relationship history “actually gave even more momentum” to the storyline “because [Lindsay] would have an emotional investment to seeing him,” Olmstead continues. “It really helped us out, because not only is Chicago Fire/PD CrossoverVoight kind of keeping an eye on her, and aware of the fact they used to date, but he’s also smartly bringing her into it and letting her use that, because it’s keeping Severide talking.”

Then there’s Lindsay’s current boyfriend, Halstead, who is “a little quick to think that Severide is guilty [because of] the fact that this guy used to sleep with his girlfriend, and he isn’t really realizing he’s doing it till down the road,” Olmstead previews. “So it really destabilizes everyone, but not Voight, who is using all of these emotions and relationships to get to the bottom of what happened, essentially.”

Considering all the complex dynamics at play, Haas sums up the Severide-focused arc as “fraught with drama” and “juicy” in its exploration of whether Lindsay is “giving favorable treatment to [someone] who could be a murderer simply because she used to go out with him.”

The upcoming Chicago P.D., Chicago Fire, and Chicago Med event is ramping up to be the most emotional Chicago crossover yet.

In the crossover, P.D.’s intelligence team works a case to determine if a doctor is intentionally killing patients. EW can now exclusively reveal that the case will hit close to home when steely squad commander Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) realizes that the suspect in question, Dr. Dean Reybold (Jeremy Shamos), was his late wife’s doctor — meaning there’s a very real possibility that his wife didn’t just die, but was killed several years ago by this man.

“We really enjoy these crossovers,” executive producer Matt Olmstead tells EW. “In this inaugural three-Chicago-show crossover, viewers are going to have the opportunity to see a side of Jason Beghe’s Voight that they haven’t experienced yet. It’s personal, emotional, and there’s a good chance viewers may find a new level of compassion for him as this case brings up feelings from his past.”

Question: Any scoop on the three-way crossover with Chicago Fire, P.D., and Med? I’ll take anything you have on any of the shows individually, too!
The franchise’s first three-way kicks off Jan. 5, when Chicago Fire responds to a call involving a comatose woman discovered in a burned-down apartment building. After learning she was on chemo, “we start digging into her case because we’re not sure if it was a suicide attempt,” P.D.‘s Jesse Lee Sofer previews. “We realize that she didn’t actually have cancer, and she was being poisoned with chemotherapy, possibly by a physician. Then the story transfers from Fire to Med to P.D., where we go on a manhunt for whoever was responsible for this. It turns out, there may be more cases.”
