Remember last week?
What happened this week?
Part One: Climbing into Bed
The episode begins by showing Adam undercover and finds out about a possible robbery; he makes a quick call to Detective Dawson. But his new contact, Frank, takes him for a ride, crashes the truck into a restaurant where a hostage is tied up. Frank shoots the hostage and shoots the masked gunmen. The men were there to rob the jewelry store next door; Frank intentionally took out the men to take the jewels for himself. Adam keeps blaming himself for the civilian death; a female restaurant manager. He remains very on edge about the actions that occurred on his watch. The street deputy visits the intelligence team to find out more details about the shooting.
Voight knows the mission was off books, and could get his team in lots of trouble. Adam’s informant, Jesse Conway, seemingly doesn’t have any information about what Frank’s intentions were. The team sets up a gps tracker on Jesse so they can track down Frank. Meanwhile the son of the deceased restaurant manager, Jordan, decides the police are not acting fast enough and decides to take action.
The team gets a lead on the location of Frank. Unfortunately, all they find is an empty car and the body of Conway lying in the field. Burgess keeps feeling disconnected from Adam, and he isn’t confiding in her. The team beings to think Jordan was a part of the jewelry heist, but his mother wasn’t supposed to be harmed. They confirm their suspicions when Jordan is found at a hotel being beat by Frank. Once at the station, Jordan confesses he was a part of the jewelry robbery. Frank is taken into custody as the team tries to tie up the case’s loose ends.
Halstead and Lindsay kept teasing viewers with their flirtation, but by the end of the episode, they are back at Lindsay’s apartment. Looks like Linstead might be back on! More bad news for Adam as the deputy takes away his badge and gun. He is still allowed to work out of the department, but cannot be in the field.
Part Two: You Never Know Who’s Who
Burgess and her temporary partner Price receive a call of a suspicious man lurking in the park. However, they find man is dead and there are no signs of foul play. With the man’s information, the team goes to his house only to find a bunker of weapons and a million dollars in cash. Victor Cullen, the man found dead in his car, was reportedly dead for a week. His longtime girlfriend confesses he dropped dead from a heart arrhythmia, but was only acting under his wishes. She insists he was C.I.A. and they would be able to take care of his body. The theory seems plausible as his body was stolen from Chicago Med.
Officer Roman had been donating bone marrow to a child named Andrew. But when treatments are not longer helpful, the station gives him a hero’s welcome as their captain for the day. He was able to make Andrew feel good for a few days. But Roman had to eventually say goodbye; the disease became too much for Andrew.
The team begins to worry about the safety of the city when one of Cullen’s employees, Ryan is found cutting up Cullen’s body looking for a chip. He claims he was following orders and has the clearance to be taking such actions. Voight reached out to a friend in the C.I.A. and it’s discovered Cullen was not a part of the agency. Dr. Charles shed some light onto Cullen’s medical condition. Although he was a part of the agency for a brief time, his delusion took over his everyday life. And he was able to recruit others into his plans.
The team decides to draw out the other members of Cullen’s delusional orders. Olinsky is sent undercover to pose as the C.I.A. handler in the wake of Cullen’s death. They did not account for the other member of the team to ask questions about Olinksy’s fake past. A fight breaks out in the elevator and Alvin is shot, but he is wearing his bulletproof vest. The suspect, Burnstrom is run down and shot in the garage. The team locates the third operative from Cullen’s group, an Army Ranger named John Radigan.
They take him into custody and end the reign of the faux C.I.A. operatives.
Olinsky finally receives the DNA results, but is reluctant to open the envelope. He decides to tear it in half and not know. He has established a good relationship with Michelle and doesn’t want anything to affect that.
Adam is reinstated as a detective, thanks to the persistence of Sergeant Platt. Lindsay is still hesitant about being in a relationship with Halstead; but he takes it a step further by kissing her in front of everyone at Molly’s. Hopefully the writers explore their relationship more and let it reach it’s potential.
These episodes were amazing! And the season doesn’t look like it’ll be slowing down anytime soon.
Ready for next week?
A disturbed student threatens to hurt his fellow students. The situation cases chaos and the team finds an active bomb that needs disarming.
