Depart a Remark
Spoilers forward for Episode 18 of Chicago P.D. Season 7, known as “Strains.”
Chicago P.D. spent “Strains” persevering with Upton’s descent into changing into a cop like Voight who does not hesitate to cross strains, however she did not altogether get away with it this time, and the top result’s a twist that would in the end present an replace on Erin Lindsay. The character left the collection on the finish of Season Four when Sophia Bush determined to depart, and she or he’s impossible to return to P.D. The present’s Upton twist may ship that replace on Lindsay with out requiring Sophia Bush.
In “Strains,” Voight bought a name from the FBI Subject Workplace in New York Metropolis to request a loan-out officer from the Intelligence Unit. After Upton planted medicine on a prison to get him caught and get Rojas out of a bind, Voight determined that she could be the one to go since he did not need her to show into him. This is how he put it:
New York’s FBI process pressure is in search of a mortgage out officer. I simply signed you up. It’s an task for a couple of weeks. Consider me, they do issues totally different there. The strains, they’re actual clear.
As longtime Chicago P.D. followers undoubtedly bear in mind, Erin Lindsay left Chicago on the finish of Season Four to take a job with the FBI’s counter-terrorism unit in New York. Even when Upton is not quickly working with the FBI on counter-terrorism, it could stand to purpose that the 2 would cross paths, even when socially. They had been briefly partnered on the finish of Season 4, in spite of everything, and Upton turned Halstead’s associate after Lindsay left.
Assuming that almost all if not all of Upton’s arc takes place off-screen whereas the motion of Chicago P.D. stays in Chicago, P.D. may ship an replace on Lindsay by way of Upton. Sophia Bush would not must reprise the function (which is not more likely to ever occur regardless of her current return to NBC) for Lindsay’s outdated buddies (and former flame) in Intelligence to seek out out what she’s as much as.
If that is the case, I simply hope that the previous few years have helped Halstead get to a spot the place he would not be upset to be reminded concerning the transfer that cut up him up from Lindsay.
I am truly actually to see how Halstead handles Upton being despatched to New York to work with the FBI, fairly abruptly. Voight advised Upton that her flight was leaving the following day, and he advised her to have a protected journey, which makes it sound like he wasn’t precisely anticipating her again within the workplace earlier than heading off for her task.
If Upton did not give Halstead a name and he finds out from any person else that his second associate for whom he seemingly has romantic emotions left for a NYC FBI posting, he won’t react effectively. Dropping Lindsay was definitely tough on Halstead in Season 5!
Not less than Upton’s task will probably be non permanent! Could Upton following in Lindsay’s footsteps for a couple of weeks by working with the FBI in New York lead to some Upstead improvement? Absence does make the center develop fonder, in spite of everything, and it could be good if Upton does not should get shot for Halstead to have a wake-up name, like what occurred for Upton within the fall finale and winter premiere this season.
Discover out if Chicago P.D. delivers an replace on Erin Lindsay with out Sophia Bush and/or delivers some developments on the Upstead entrance with Upton heading to the FBI in New York with new episodes on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC following new episodes of Chicago Hearth at 9 p.m. ET and Chicago Med at Eight p.m. ET.
Sadly, all three One Chicago collection are having their seasons reduce brief as a result of coronavirus halting manufacturing, however not less than all of them scored large renewals earlier than the shutdowns occurred. Remember to vote within the ballot under about whether or not P.D. ought to ship that replace on Lindsay!
