Mrs. Carter: Should all Linstead fans be worried when it comes to a future “Chicago PD” story?
Given that these two have had a fairly stable, healthy relationship on the show for a little while not, we understand that it was probably a pipe dream that it would last. Still, we WANTED to believe it just because believing in nice things is fun.
Do we think that these two are meant to be? Absolutely, but there are going to be some other stumbling blocks that are going to be thrown in there way here and there over the course of the coming weeks. For more on that, just take a look at the small, but important, tease that executive producer Matt Olmstead handed down in a new Entertainment Weekly piece:
“A past ‘undisclosed’ relationship of Halstead’s comes back into the picture, putting his relationship with Lindsay on the rocks.”
So why wouldn’t Halstead mention this to her? We have a hard time imagining with this guy it’s because he wants to get back with this other person more than he wants to be with Erin. Maybe it’s just a situation where he didn’t think the past mattered all that much, or that he was embarrassed about something that happened way back when.
The issue that Jay has with this is mostly just perception. With Lindsay. you’ve got someone who has such a rich and at times very dark past, but she’s been open with it and she’s had someone in Halstead that she could rely on to discuss much of it, both the good and the bad. Having that rock, the shoulder to lean on is a pretty valuable thing. She wants to feel like she can be that shoulder to him, but if she feels like she’s putting 110% into the relationship and he’s somewhere around 85%, you can see why that may be an issue … and something that they are going to have to deal with.
