After-Take: CHICAGO PD “The Silos”
Name of the Episode: The Silos
The team picks up where they left us last season. We were picking up the pieces of our broken hearts after Justin’s death. As Voight is visiting Justin’s grave, Lindsay is home with Halstead. However, she can’t have any moments of calm because she keeps reliving the night of the shooting. Commander Crowley is trying get Lindsay to confess what she knows about Voight’s actions. Lindsay doesn’t give any information as Crowley begs her to give Voight up so she doesn’t lose her career as well.
However, the intelligence team has their hands full with an adult body burned in a car. It’s possible the subject was wearing a police wire at the time of his death. With Roman out of the city, Burgess is now assigned to a new partner, Julie Tay. Burgess is skeptical of her new partner; she needs someone she can trust. It’s obvious to the team that Voight is hiding something because Crowley keeps trying to contact him and Lindsay. It’s discovered that the young man was named Evan. He was only trying to help his sister stay out of trouble with the police by taking her place in a drug buy.
Olive tells Voight she is moving to Arizona with her sister and subsequently taking Daniel with her. Voight is heartbroken as his grandson leaves with Olive. At the station, Lindsay reluctantly tells a few details to Halstead about her woes; he follows up with asking her to move in with him, he doesn’t want to lose her.
The team inches closer to answers about the drug mark, that killed Evan. Burgess and Julie are finding their stride together as new partners. With the drug dealer caught and arrested, Evan’s family gets a little bit of closure. As the team wrapped up their investigation, Crowley shows up at the scene to take Voight to the scene of the crime. She offers him a deal if he confesses, because she believes to have the answer she needed from Lindsay. Voight doesn’t budge, and the crew tries to exhume a body from the ground. No body is found, and Voight is cleared to return to work. He goes to see Lindsay and thanks her for covering for his actions. She had no choice; she openly admits that if he didn’t save her, she would have died at fifteen years old. She is all he has in his life now, and he collapses into her arms weeping.
On next week’s episode: a young white woman is missing in the heart of south Chicago. The race for her rescue is quickly heated and threatens the safety of the Police Department.
