'Chicago P.D.' recap: Where the wind took us

Season 2 | Episode 7 | “They’ll Have to Go Through Me” | Aired Nov 12, 2014

Welcome to the final installment of NBC’s crossover week event. Last night we saw the beginning of the case unfold in Chicago Fire before establishing connections that sent detectives from Chicago P.D. to New York.

We pick up with the Intelligence Unit responding to a fallen officer, shot while guarding the hospital room of a suspect. Ruzek knew the cop, but out of everyone, Platt is taking the loss the hardest.

Lead after lead in the pedophile ring case ends up in the suspects killing themselves one way or another, whether deliberately or accidentally—like the actual cop killer, who falls to his death after a rooftop chase.

The police commander threatens to hand the case over to Major Crimes effective at the end of the day given the fact that one of Voight’s detectives has a personal connection to the case. Lindsay’s brother, Teddy, is repeatedly mentioned as a victim, but he’s been MIA since he agreed to fly out to Chicago to help with the case. His very existence is still a shock to me—we never even knew she had a brother before tonight!

When Erin locates Teddy and brings him in to the office with her, he immediately identifies the man in charge of the pedophile ring: the manager at DCFS.  Wow. It’s a good thing Erin took the little girl home to her apartment the previous night rather than cycle her back into the obviously dirty system.

Olivia Benson calls Voight to hear the latest on the case. Voight’s “running out of rats” and needs her help. She says she’ll be on the next plane out. She arrives just before they arrest the ringleader, and she’s able to stop Voight from handling this business the only way he knows how. Benson is probably the only person who can bargain with Voight to give her five minutes alone with the guy, who spills on the whereabouts of the other missing foster kid. Rollins and Amaro are also in Chicago working the case, but Benson is the one who really gets stuff done here—and stops Voight from resorting to his violent ways.

In the end, the children are safe, but the family of the fallen officer will never be the same again. Cops line the streets outside the district where the dead man’s wife and children are retrieving his belongings. Platt’s call for everyone to salute the family as they leave is definitely a tearjerker.

Chicago P.D.

Lindsay’s brother will be staying with Bunny and her new husband. I’m just as glad as Erin to see Teddy home where he belongs. We don’t know much about their family history, but I especially liked Erin’s apology to her brother for not being there for him when he was growing up in foster homes and being subjected to these horrible pedophiles. His answer was that they (meaning this little family of Bunny, Erin, and Teddy) all went “where the wind took [them].” Now that they’re all at least,on speaking terms, it will be nice to see them develop into a slightly more functional family.

What did you think of the epic crossover? Do you hope to see more in the future?

Chicago P.D. airs Wednesdays at 10/9C on NBC.
