After being tipped off about a woman running barefoot through the woods, Intelligence is led to a kidnapping victim locked up in a shipping container. The bizarre scenario leaves Voight (Jason Beghe) questioning the legitimacy of the case, and sends the team on a twisted trail to get to the bottom of it. Meanwhile, a former relationship of Halstead’s (Jesse Lee Soffer) comes back into the picture, much to the surprise of Lindsay (Sophia Bush).
You can usually rely on Chicago P.D. to have an interesting, fast-paced case at the heart of an episode but this one really didn’t work for me.
Lindsay was exceedingly harsh to a witness, somehow an illiterate foster kid is under the spell of two OAPs and then conveniently commits suicide. The little old lady is actually a kidnapping mastermind and for some unknown reason separates the two girls she has kidnapped, keeping one of them behind the fridge …. And then there’s the whole Halstead/Lindsay break up.
After all the crap they have been through with Lindsay worrying about Hank’s approval and Lindsay going off the rails after Nadia’s death, Halstead/Lindsay are finally in a good place ……. and then all of a sudden TPTB decide to throw the fact that Jay was already secretly married into the mix. Erm, what?!
I can kind of believe him not telling Lindsay since they’ve been a couple but I refuse to believe that in all this time he and Lindsay were partners, he wouldn’t have let it slip in a “I know this sounds like such a cliche but I got married whilst drunk in Vegas …” type conversation over a few beers.
And then even though Lindsay is being all grown up and willing to overlook the whole marriage thing, Halstead still moves out.
Wake me when the drama ends.
