01/11/2017 (10:00PM – 11:00PM) (Wednesday) : INTELLIGENCE INVESTIGATES THE ACTIONS OF A PRIVATE POLICE FORCE OPERATING INDEPENDENTLY OF THE CPD. When a mutilated sex offender is found dead, it is unclear if he was the victim of a hate crime, sexual assault or self-mutilation. As Intelligence questions those related to the case, they find themselves up against a private “special police” force who may be covering up illegal activities. Meanwhile, Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) runs Jimmy’s (guest star Tony Crane) DNA to confirm that he is actually Lindsay’s (Sophia Bush) father. Also starring Jason Beghe, Patrick John Flueger, Elias Koteas, Marina Squerciati, LaRoyce Hawkins and Amy Morton. Guest starring Markie Post and Nick Wechsler.

Revenge alum Nick Wechsler is moving up the ranks with a recurring gig on Chicago P.D., where his gang-unit member Kenny Rixton won’t get the warmest of receptions.
When Voight brings his former protégé Kenny into Intelligence during next Wednesday’s episode (NBC, 10/9c), it doesn’t sit well with some of the squad.
“They want to know the story: Who am I working with? Who am I trusting my life to?” executive producer Matt Olmstead previews.
Voight, however, “isn’t in a big hurry to over-explain himself to the rest of the people who are under him in the unit,” the EP says. “He doesn’t really mind them being a little destabilized, and he’s not falling over himself to say, ‘Hey, guys, accept him.’ He’s still coming from a point of view of, ‘I run the unit. I brought him in. I say he’s going to work out, [then] he’s going to work out. So do your job.’”
Chicago PD SpoilersBut that non-answer “may not be good enough for some people, like Halstead and Atwater, who want to know more about this guy,” Olmstead continues.
Kenny’s arrival stirs “different reactions from the characters in the unit, in terms of their willingness to look past certain things,” the EP adds.
Having turned his own life around to a degree, Voight “believes in” Kenny’s future potential – and that could lead to heartache for the typically stoic Sergeant.
“We’re going to explore the circumstances of why [Kenny] wants to leave the gang unit,” Olmstead teases. “The question becomes: Can [Kenny] make a transition into legitimate detective work when he came from the murky Wild West of the gang unit? That’s this character’s journey, which isn’t entirely successful, at least at the outset. Do old habits die hard? And does that kind of break Voight’s heart, in terms of wanting this kid to move forward like he, himself, did?”
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.”

Chicago P.D. star Jesse Lee Soffer has a message for fans who think that Erin Lindsay and Jay Halstead shacking up will soon lead to a milestone of the diamond variety.
“People live together for a while. We’re getting a little ahead of ourselves,” the actor warns the engagement hopefuls. “They’re career cops. Hold on a second! Let them focus on their professionalism for a minute!” he adds with a laugh.
Co-star Sophia Bush “definitely” thinks it’s too early in the pair’s relationship to be talking about ring-popping. “I don’t think that’s Erin’s priority in any way,” she explains.
While Jay won’t be putting a rock on his girlfriend’s finger in the near future, the couple’s connection will be strengthened when Erin’s absentee dad Jimmy Sanguinetti (played by Tony Crane) re-enters his daughter’s life and causes plenty of trouble, as Soffer and Bush reveal to TVLine below.
TVLINE | Things are going so swimmingly for Jay and Erin right now. Do you foresee any obstacles coming their way?
SOPHIA BUSH | I never know with that stuff, but what I think is cool is that we’re not making a big deal out of it. It’s two people who’ve been in a relationship a long time, who said, “Alright, let’s give it a try,” and they’re just seeing how it goes. … It’s cool that it’s just sort of working. There doesn’t need to be any drama. We’ve got a lot of drama [and] a lot of entertainment value with the cases. So I’m sure it’ll be nice until the writers decide it doesn’t get to be anymore, and then we’ll see what happens.
JESSE LEE SOFFER | [They are] very domesticated right now. It’s kind of a nice break from all the conflict with Voight [about] “will they or won’t they be able to be together,” and “is he going to put an end to it.” It’s a nice break to just relax and play out some of that relationship dynamic when you come home from work and see these characters deal with the stuff they see at work in their private lives.
TVLINE | Will we be seeing more scenes of them at home? So far, it’s mostly just been about them moving in together.
SOFFER | Absolutely. I’m sure every few episodes, they’ll throw something in for the fans.
TVLINE | What can viewers expect with Erin’s family coming back into the picture?
BUSH | There was a whole storyline last year where Bunny told Erin that her father wanted to meet her, and it just didn’t make it in. The cases were too big and complicated. So they’re saying that they might bring it back in now. All that I know so far is that [Bunny] tells me he’s in Chicago and wants to meet me. I know that a couple of facts that Erin thought she knew about her dad turn out to not be true.
TVLINE | With her father resurfacing, does Erin find herself leaning on Jay?
SOFFER | Yeah, I think more so than ever, she leans on Jay instead of Voight, because they’re closer now than they’ve ever been. She is going to lean on him in that situation. We don’t know what that’s going to be yet. We haven’t seen those scripts yet. We know that it’s going to be a conflict. We know that he’s going to cause a lot of trouble.
Chicago P.D. airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on NBC.
