We're counting the days until Upton (Tracy Spiridakos) returns to Chicago P.D., and this wait feels like it's taking forever. As you'll recall, Voight (Jason Beghe) sent her to New York to work alongside the feds in the hopes that she'll keep on the straight and narrow rather than follow in his footsteps and become someone accustomed to bending the rules for their own agenda. Although Upton is set to return to her Intelligence cohorts soon, Platt (Amy Morton) took it upon herself to tease Halstead about the possibility of her not coming back in this exclusive sneak peek at Wednesday's episode.
"Feds have a sneaky way of holding onto good people," Platt jokes to Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) in the preview, noting that the FBI pays their agents extremely well. More importantly, she got Halstead to admit that he misses Upton, though it wasn't exactly a romantic declaration. Still, we'll take what we can get.
Wednesday's episode will also see Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger) continue to navigate this amicable but strange new dynamic following their tragic loss, which hasn't been easy for either of them. In the video, the pair's friendly conversation takes an awkward turn when Burgess realizes that Ruzek has a date and won't be able to grab a bite with her.
"Copy you, you have plans," she says, brushing off the slightly uncomfortable moment. "I'm glad you're out there having fun." Kudos to Burgess for handling this better than we ever could.
Chicago P.D. airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on NBC.
