It involved the son of one of Sergeant Hank Voight’s (Jason Beghe) old confidential informants. Meanwhile, Nadia (Stella Maeve) goes for her first ride-along with Officer Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Officer Sean Roman (Brian Geraghty), while Sergeant Trudy Platt (Amy Morton) grew attached to a young girl in her care. Read on to learn more about this episode.

The entire Intelligence Unit went to a crime scene. It involved two dead teenagers belonging to the Gangster Disciples, who were found near a truck, whose driver, Aaron McIntyre (John Kelly), was missing. Inside the truck were tubs of sauce with two million dollars worth of heroin.


Detective Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) and Detective Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush) then discovered that one of the victims, Darius Gifford, lived alone with his younger sister, Denise Gifford (Storm Reid). She had seen him earlier with the other victim, Andre, and another teenage on whom they had pulled a gun on. Before bringing her to the station to be picked up by her aunt, they discovered an old calling card of Sergeant Hank Voight’s (Jason Beghe) in one of the wallets. However, after showing the card to Voight, and after telling him that the missing teenager was Charles Gray (Maurice Demus). His mother was a woman named Michelle Post. He was the one who instructed Jay and Lindsay to find out more about the truck driver, and left to visit Michelle. However, Michelle told him that Charles hadn’t been involved in any gangs lately.

Downstairs, Sergeant Trudy Platt (Amy Morton) took care of Denise while they waited for her aunt to pick her up. Before Nadia (Stella Maeve) left with Officer Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Officer Sean Roman (Brian Geraghty), Platt warned her to be safe and told her to do absolutely nothing while with them.

Later, Platt placed Denise in the care of Child Services as her aunt was a drug addict.

Back at the precinct, a frustrated Jay, who couldn’t get any information out of Voight about his connection to Charles or Michelle, decided to go the address that Craig “Mouse” Gurwitch (Samuel Hunt) had given them, as the truck that they had recovered at the crime scene parked there for thirty minutes once a month. As the location was within the Gangster Disciples territory, they realized that the truck had been headed there.

Lindsay, Jay, Officer Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins) and Officer Adam Ruzek (John Patrick Flueger) staked out the place. Atwater and Ruzek confronted two teenagers who just came out of the building. He went with them back inside in order to see if there were any drugs to be found there. However, as soon as they got inside, the door slammed, and the two teenagers begged to be released as a fire, which they had started ignited. Thankfully, Jay managed to kick the building’s fan out of its frame. It allowed him to open the door for the others, as the door only opened from the outside.

At interrogation, Jay apologized for being reckless. Voight told him that he trusted Michelle as she had been one of his most trustworthy confidential informants back in the day.

Inside, Ruzek and Atwater learned that Andre and Darius had decided to rob their own truck. Because of that, their leader was after Charles, as somebody had to pay for the two million dollars worth of heroin that had been lost.

Meanwhile, Nadia started to become bored as they were answering calls such as reports of a dog barking loudly. However, when Burgess and Roman checked it out, they discovered that the homeowners had been tied up and gagged. Outside, Nadia followed two men that she saw had come out of the side entrance, and stopped them from escaping, but got herself and the car shot at. It caused Platt and Commander Fisher (Kevin J. O’Connor) to reprimand Burgess and Roman, and Nadia, respectively.

Meanwhile, Detective Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas) and Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) brought in the truck driver. He informed them that he smuggled heroin in from Texas for that gang, and that this time, a Mexican enforcer, named Octavio Ramirez had accompanied him. This man was the one who was now after Charles, as he had killed both Darius and Andre.


After learning that Charles had been shot, Voight asked Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) to patch Charles up. Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) to patch Charles up while he and Jay got rid of Ramirez. They had come to finish off Charles, who had been coerced to be Andre’s and Darius’ wheelman.

Afterward, Voight helped them get settled outside Chicago, and Will and Jay bonded at home. There, Jay told him that he hadn’t spoken to his father in two years. He told his brother that he should have been around when their mother was dying instead of partying. Will then told him that he had left New York because he had gotten tired of doing things for money, and told him that he was going to work at the emergency room of ChicagoMed.
