With Chicago P.D.‘s Intelligence crew closing in on drug kingpin Javier Escano, this Wednesday’s episode (NBC, 10/9c) finds Voight and his legal informant Anna toeing a fragile line. Anna has been deep undercover gathering intel, and Voight’s lies to maintain her on monitor have solely exacerbated the deterioration of their belief.
It’s a precarious state of affairs that, in keeping with solid member LaRoyce Hawkins, will present viewers a brand new aspect of Voight.
“I believe we’re going to see Voight like we haven’t seen him shortly,” the actor, who performs Atwater, tells TVLine. “We’ve seen Voight defend, defend and make investments his power throughout the folks that he loves. I’m unsure if the unit anticipated Voight to attach with Anna or this case as a lot as he did, so we’ll watch Voight make peculiar selections in comparison with what we all know him to do persistently.”
This raises the stakes for the remainder of the crew as a result of it “places us ready to need to step up, locking in on our roles throughout the unit even tighter,” Hawkins provides.
Patrick John Flueger, who performs Ruzek, notes that Voight’s dealing with of the Javier case leaves the remainder of the crew out of the loop, particularly for the reason that others don’t have a robust connection to Anna. “All the things that’s happening with [Anna], this father-daughter relationship, that’s between them,” Flueger says. “We simply need to go along with what he says, what his orders are [and] what his plan is as a result of he’s the sergeant. He’s our fearless chief, however not so fearless [and] not so certain in these final two episodes.”
In the meantime, the others within the unit — together with Ruzek, Atwater and Burgess — have their “nostril to the bottom [and are] able to do the job. They don’t have the emotional connection to Anna. Their connection to the case is simply that that is the longest case they’ve labored within the 9 years we’ve been on the air. This might be an enormous bust.”
For Flueger, the state of affairs is just like what went down with Upton and Halstead earlier this season in the course of the Roy investigation. “The 2 of them navigating that, and the parallels to what’s occurring now with Voight and Anna — Voight retains us all at midnight as a lot as he can.”
Hawkins does shed some gentle, although, on subsequent week’s Season 9 finale, saying that followers can anticipate “the motion that we’re used to on the subject of these finales, however with an fascinating twist on it.”
