Tonight, “Chicago PD” is giving you an episode that is going to feature some of the next steps for Ruzek after his return to Intelligence — though it doesn’t seem like he’s going to have an easy road getting back in the cage given the shakeups that have occurred there since his exit.
Moving forward, the show is going to be shifting and evolving once again, and we’re specifically going to get the second part of a three-part crossover that will effectively involve every part of the #OneChicago universe, including the new “Chicago Justice” that will be getting a special time-period premiere come 10:00 p.m. Eastern time.
Synopsis – “Olinsky’s (Elias Koteas) daughter remains in critical condition following a massive fire – leaving Intelligence on edge, but more determined than ever to track down the suspect. Voight (Jason Beghe) opens up the case, knowing that he has Stone (guest star Philip Winchester) and his team’s full support in the investigation, and all of Firehouse 51 behind him to examine potential origins of the fire. Intelligence works to connect the dots between the building owner, those who were inside, and a string of potential suspects.”
This is clearly an episode that will have several different moving parts, but it is so massive that it will need almost every branch of Chicago to get involved in order to figure out precisely what happened. Let’s just hope that along the way, there are going to be some developments that get all of the characters involved in interesting ways — and allow Elias in particular to have a powerful moment. It definitely appears already that this is going to be a case that impacts him deeply on an emotional level.
