“Chicago PD” Season 3 Episode 6 “You Never Know Who’s Who” aired last Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at 10:00 PM on NBC. In this episode, after the dead body of a private security company owner who claimed to be part of the CIA was found dead, the Intelligence Unit was plunged into a case full of mystery and suspicion as they tried to make heads and tails of what the truth really was. Meanwhile, Officer Sean Roman (Brian Graghty) gave the child he had been donating bone marrow to a little field trip before he passed away, Detective Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) and Detective Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush) took an important step in their relationship, and Officer Adam Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger) discovered his fate and future as a police officer. Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode began with Officer Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and her partner for the meantime, Officer Price (Travis A. Knight) responding to the call of a young couple who had noticed a suspicious black SUV that turned out to be bullet proof and armoured. Inside was a dead old man named Victor Cullen who owned a private security firm.


Upon entering his house, they discovered more than one million dollars inside, and a very well stocked arsenal.

The next day, they were informed by Cullen’s girlfriend that he died of a heart attack, and asked for his body to be placed in a public place so that the CIA would be able to find him.

Because of this, Detective Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas) reached out to his CIA contact, Bishop (Steven Williams) to see if Cullen had been telling the truth.

Meanwhile, Officer Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) asked Sergeant Trudy Platt (Amy Morton) if she could somehow help Ruzek out with regards to his situation before heading down to help Craig “Mouse” Gurwitch (Samuel Hunt) and Ruzek catalogue the guns that they had brought back from Cullen’s arsenal.

Later that day, the entire precinct geared up for a visit from Andrew Gibson (Vincent Shuster), the boy whom Officer Sean Roman (Brian Geraghty) was supposed to donate bone marrow to. They set him up as a captain and gave him a day that he would never forget, which was a good thing as the doctor, later that night, told Andrew’s mother and Roman that he didn’t think that the boy would last the night.

During lunch that day, Platt bumped into Deputy Emma Crowley (Barbara Eve Harris), and talked to her about Ruzek.

Meanwhile, the team became flabbergasted after discovering that professionals had stolen Cullen’s body from the morgue. However, they were able to track down Ryan Bergstrom (Leif Gantvoort), the man who stole the body, as he had picked up the SUV’s that Cullen had had outfitted recently.


After capturing him, Bergstrom informed them that he had been part of a special operation, and that he had been under instructions to remove Cullen’s chip from his body, which all agents had been outfitted with.

Mouse then discovered that it seems like Cullen had managed to murder and execute three criminals recently who had all gotten free due to a technicality.

Later, Bishop informed them that Cullen had been an analyst in Panama before, but had been let go as he had, according to Dr. Daniel Charles (Oliver Platt), been suffering from delusions, which made it seem that the entire operation had been real.

After revealing this to Bergstrom, he agreed to cooperate with them to bring the two other operatives in by having Detective Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas) pose as Cullen’s CIA handler.

They then managed to meet Clay Carlson (James Knight) who was later shot down after realizing that Alvin wasn’t really CIA.

The other one, John Lee Radigan (Greg Berman) was tracked down thanks to the fact that he had stolen one of the guns in Cullen’s arsenal.

Later that night, Ruzek was informed that thanks to Platt, Crowley was going to drop the investigation, and Olinsky, instead of looking at the results of the DNA test he had done to test if Michelle Sovana (Madison McLaughlin) was truly his daughter, he threw them away.

At Molly’s, Jay and Lindsay made a huge step into their relationship, and they kissed and held hands for the first time in public.
