Season 8 of ‘Chicago PD’ was filled with engaging storylines and complex situations. Whenever fans thought that the show might get slow after some time, the makers surprised them with another amazing episode. The makers recently promised that the season finale would shock the viewers and leave them wanting more.

The finale of Season 8 just aired on NBC and viewers can’t stop talking about it. All eyes were on Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and fans were eagerly waiting to see if she’ll be able to survive the dangerous situation. In the penultimate episode, we saw Deputy Superintendent Samantha Miller’s (Nicole Ari Parker) son found himself in the middle of a case that was being handled by the intelligence unit.

While working undercover, Miller’s son was killed by traffickers. His death took the team by storm and they rigorously try to search for those responsible for his death. Fortunately, the team gets a lead and Burgess makes the mistake of going to the location without any backup. Burgess was attacked as soon as she reached there, thus setting up a major cliff-hanger heading into the finale. Did Burgess survive? Or her time at the Chicago Police Department has come to an end? Let’s find out what happened to Burgess during the finale.

The season finale picked up right where the penultimate episode left off. The opening minutes of the finale saw Burgess in great distress as her attacker brutally assaulted her. However, things got really intense when we saw that the attacker’s partner also showed up at the scene and that’s when things got escalated pretty quickly.

Roy arrives at the warehouse and shoots his accomplice, but he also shot Burgess twice in the stomach and she says, “No, I have a daughter.” The scene gave fans a lot of reasons to panic as it looked that we just witnessed the end of Burgess on Chicago PD. However, fans took a sigh of relief when they saw that Burgess survived the attack. But her life was still in danger. Burgess did not step down and created a makeshift tourniquet and managed to crawl out of the garage. She broke into one of the cars and turned on the emergency lights before passing out in the driver’s seat.

After a lot of effort, Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins) and Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) finally noticed the emergency lights and made it to Burgess in time. She was quickly taken to the hospital for treatment as she needed surgery.

The episode ended with no official update regarding Burgess’s condition, putting fans in shock if they had seen Burgess’s exit from the show. The conclusion of Season 8 made it looked like Squerciati might not be returning for another season, but there is no confirmation as of yet.

Considering Burgess’s fate was left up in the air, it is possible that the writers wrote the story as a possible exit should Squerciati choose not to return.

‘Chicago PD’ will be telecasting older episodes from Season 8 on NBC from next week at 10 pm EST.
