‘Chicago P.D.’ EP On A Future Without Jay Halstead; Voight’s Unraveling In Season 10

NBC’s Chicago P.D. premiered its 10th season on Wednesday night and the anticipation as to how Jesse Lee Soffer, who plays Detective Jay Halstead, will exit is all anyone can think about.

The episode picks up two weeks after the crazy events of the Season 9 finale that saw the Intelligence Unit bring down the notorious Los Temidos gang who were responsible for much of the drugs flowing in and out of the city, among other horrible crimes. With the organization out of the way, its replacement already has boots on the ground and Voight (Jason Beghe) is none too happy about it. Even as a powerful and connected guy, not even Voight can prevent a new gang from claiming the orphaned street corners.

It’s revealed early on that the unit boss is dealing with some demons following the death of his C.I. Anna Avalos (Carmela Zumbado). Although he didn’t pull the trigger himself, he feels responsible for not protecting her as he had promised. Meanwhile, Hailey Upton Halstead (Tracy Spiridakos) is also coping with the aftermath of the finale as the person who killed Anna, even after Voight explains he takes full responsibility for her death and doesn’t blame her. Back on the streets, Voight finds an unconscious boy who overdosed after accidentally eating strawberries that had been laced with drugs laying on the concrete. And everything became increasingly worse when the boy dies and an enraged Voight orders the team to search for the new dealers in town and pronto.

Newcomer Dante Torres (Benjamin Levy Aguilar) made his debut tonight as a series regular when Halstead enlists his help in their search for Enzo, the new drug boss. At first, he was on loan from the police department but at the end of the episode, Chief Patrick O’Neal (Michael Gaston) allows Torres to join Voight’s team officially. After bringing down Enzo, Voight has a chat with Halstead and Upton telling them they can no longer work together. This could be the unraveling that leads to Halstead’s eventual departure. Chicago P.D. executive producer Gwen Sigan spoke to Deadline about a future without Halstead, Voight’s journey in Season 10, and more.

Yeah, he’s definitely feeling the fallout, especially in this first episode. We’re two weeks after so it’s really fresh. It’s also been a while since we’ve seen Voight have a relationship like he had with Anna, where he allowed himself to be a little more vulnerable and to have a connection that was reciprocated. He’s somebody that loves everybody in his unit so much but he has these boundaries, and we saw a little bit of those walls come down last season. And now in the aftermath of her death in such a brutal way, he takes a lot of responsibility for that. He’s really feeling a lot of guilt in this first episode to the point where he’s really bleeding from it. He wishes he would have done things differently. We will certainly see it continue throughout the season.
