Spoilers ahead for the Season 10 best of Chicago P.D., called “Let It Bleed.”
Chicago P.D. went back to NBC for Season 10 as the only One Chicago reveal with an instant time dive, although – as showrunner Gwen Sigan had actually exposed when talking about how “messy” the dynamics would get – just 2 weeks forward. Voight was still reeling from Anna’s death after the disastrous Season 9 finale, and his failure to come to terms with it was impacting the whole system… specifically Halstead and Upton. The 2 married investigators weren’t precisely combating in “Let In Bleed,” however they likewise weren’t at their best. The showrunner talked to CinemaBlend about their vibrant, and how dispute with Voight will continue.
The vibrant in between these 3 characters shifted and evolved in Season 9 after Roy Walton’s death and Halstead’s actions to stop the FBI examination prior to it took Upton and Voight down. Halstead and Voight are more on equivalent footing since Season 10, however Upton questioned Voight’s judgment to the point of going rogue when Torres (played by returning visitor star and new series regular Benjamin Levy Aguilar) remained in threat.
They had a conference in which Voight specified that they couldn’t keep going by doing this if they wish to all continue collaborating. After he left Upton and Halstead alone together, Halstead asked his spouse if they were “great.” She fasted to inform her other half “naturally,” then asked him the exact same concern. He had the exact same response for her. Upstead appeared to declare that they’re still a group, however the episode didn’t precisely end with them avoiding into the sunset together. So, what’s up with Upstead?
I asked Gwen Sigan how their relationship is holding up since completion of the Season 10 best, and the showrunner shared:
Unfortunately, what’s up with Upstead in this case isn’t that they’re the photo of domestic joy bleeding into work. On the advantage, the showrunner made the point (more than when) that Upton and Halstead really like each other, and Tracy Spiridakos’ and Jesse Lee Soffer’s efficiencies in their last scene of the best recommend that the characters are still all-in. (Spiridakos had a sweet message for her on-screen husband a couple of weeks prior to the best.)
The upcoming departure of Soffer as Halstead positions significant concerns about their vibrant, nevertheless, as huge changes are bound to occur in Season 10 since of it. The Season 10 style of “hero” and its ties to characters who see themselves as broken (as explained by Gwen Sigan and two P.D. stars) likewise raises concerns about how the fallout will bet Voight along with Upstead. The showrunner weighed in on whether the 3 will have the ability to collaborate functionally progressing after whatever:
Many fans can most likely rather clearly keep in mind when Halstead lastly snapped at Voight and punched him in the face last season after he dropped some remarks about Upton, so a lot has actually altered for them to now be “very close.” They have actually constantly had an unique vibrant within Intelligence, and it wasn’t all that long ago that Voight informed Halstead that the system would one day be his. So, how is this altered relationship impacting them? Sigan continued:
This vibrant in between Halstead and Voight will obviously continue through Soffer’s staying episodes. As no one from One Chicago or Wolf Entertainment has actually validated how Soffer will be drawn up, we can just hypothesize in the meantime about how Voight and Upton will be impacted when Halstead is no longer around every day.
