'Chicago PD' Season 7 Episode 17 will bring the focus back onto Hank Voight as a gang war looms
As we hunker down to keep the best social distancing practices, on March 18, Chihards will have new 'Chicago' episodes to fill their evenings with. It's an extra special episode for fans of Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) who so far has not had an episode centered on him this season and it's complete with personal disputes and a gang war to boot!
In this week's episode of 'Chicago PD', titled 'Before the Fall', Voight's professional and personal limits will be tested as we see how far he goes to get justice. By now, true Chihards know that Voight can go quite far in that quest.
In the promo for the episode, a child's body is found in a bloody crime scene. Voight's team is the first on the scene, however, the Homicide Division shows up. In a sneak peek for the episode, we see the homicide squad's detective is not happy about Voight telling him to get off 'his' scene.
Unfortunately, it does not seem like Voight gets his way as the police chief has asked Voight and the Intelligence Unit to work with the Homicide division on this particular case. This will apparently lead to a "feud between the cops," according to the voiceover in the promo.
The homicide squad's detective seems quite brash and does not seem to know of Voight's reputation. He could be new or he could just be that determined to show he's better than Voight. But as we know, it's Voight's way or the highway and hopefully, the detective gets that by the end of the episode.
With a gang war also brewing in the background, this could be an intense episode. It would also be interesting to see if Detective Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) might once again clash with Voight over the latter's propensity to handle cases in a questionable manner.
It might also be the case where Detective Hailey Upton (Tracy Spiridakos) would go along with Voight's idea rather than her trusted partner. This is sure to create some tension between Halstead and Upton, something that fans will not be looking forward to.
'Chicago PD' airs on NBC on Wednesday nights at 10/9c.
