Casey meets his niece Violet at a café and discovers that she is experiencing trouble at school and at home. Shocked, Casey follows up with his sister Christie to see if he can help and she assures him that she can manage just fine, the family’s just going through a rough financial period. But her lack of specifics piques Casey’s curiosity and he visits Jim, Christie’s husband, at his firm downtown where Jim drops the big news – he and Christie are in the midst of a divorce. Except Casey suspects Jim of withholding more information when his secretary bounds in and acts a little too casual.
The lieutenant’s concern for his sister’s family boils over into 51 when he borrows Dawson for advice and leaves Herrmann with menial candidate duties. This causes resentment and an irate Herrmann mentions it to Boden – the two men clash in a difference of opinion and, as the chief, Boden wins out. Later, Herrmann’s frustration reaches a peak when he notices another mistake from Dawson – except she admits to making the mistake on purpose to test whether Herrmann and the squad would treat her like a normal candidate. After a big argument, Dawson requests to shadow Herrmann instead of Casey – and Herrmann agrees. It seems her true test is yet to come.
Meanwhile, Brett remains uncertain about whether she should rejoin Harrison and return to Indiana. After shift, she makes it back to her apartment only to find the door busted open… and her entire place in the midst of a robbery. Moreover, she discovers the thief is still there – her instincts kick in and she beats him out with a baseball bat. When Harrison hears about the break in, he offers to start packing for Indiana right away, assured that she lacks the ability to handle herself. But Brett sees it differently – she did handle it and she’s ready to stay in Chicago. With or without him.
Another person ready for a change is Joe Cruz, still serving his driving suspension. During an intense apartment fire, his quick thinking rescues a fire victim from a balcony and Boden commends his efforts. In fact, Boden asks Chief Tiberg to reinstate Cruz, but Tiberg rejects him without a second’s thought. But Boden believes Cruz deserves it and pushes the request up the chain of command. They eventually issue the reinstatement, yet it comes at a cost for the chief – he will not be considered for a promotion during the next round.
Unable to shake off the feeling that Jim might be hiding something, Casey approaches Officer Ruzek from Chicago P.D. and asks him to look into Jim. Ruzek comes back with troubling information not only is Jim seeing his secretary, he signed over the company’s assets to her as well, meaning that Christie won’t see a penny from his lucrative company in the divorce. Casey relays this to Christie, but rather than jump at the chance to even the score with Jim, Christie tells Casey she would rather settle the case and move on. Unsatisfied with Christie’s reaction, Casey surprises Jim and his secret girlfriend during dinner and demands that they look at his company’s books tomorrow morning. Jim attempts to cover, but Casey cuts him off this time, it’s Casey who means business. Well it gets very personal next week for Casey so don’t miss next week’s episode. Here’s a sneak peak.
NBC Gives Three Season Renewal to One Chicago Shows ‘Chicago PD,’ ‘Chicago Fire,’ and ‘Chicago Med’
And that’s what we call a triple sweep!
Your favorite ER docs, firefighters, and detectives aren’t going anywhere anytime soon because NBC just gave the #OneChicago universe a massive pick-up.
All three series in Dick Wolf’s “Chicago” franchise will be returning for an additional three more seasons.
According to Deadline, the renewals are part of a new deal between Wolf and Universal Studios.
“Dick Wolf has proven time and time again that he makes shows audiences love,” said Paul Telegdy, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “We are delighted, excited and proud that as part of this epic deal with Wolf Entertainment, NBC’s loyal audience will know that their favorite shows have a certain future for the next three years.”
His other highly-rated and highly-performing drama, Law & Order SVU, also snagged three more seasons.
While nabbing three seasons at one time is surely a feat to be proud of, it isn’t unheard of at NBC, a network that loves to reward shows that simultaneously perform well live, in DVR viewing, and can also be syndicated. And if they have large, dedicated followings — which all 4 Wolf shows do — it only works in their favor.
The shows join the previously renewed medical drama New Amsterdam and the emotional family drama This Is Us, which was scored a three-season renewal.
Following the exciting news, the shows will have to renegotiate contracts with talent. Since three-years is a pretty massive chunk of time, it’s possible that not all of your favorites will stick around for the full-term.
Wolf has found success in both keeping his lead around for the entire duration of a series like Mariska Hargitay on Law & Order: SVU or swapping out the full cast entirely to offer a different perspective and reinvent the wheel. Either way, it’s bound to be successful and lucrative.
Are you excited about the renewals?

The First ‘Chicago Fire’ and ‘Chicago PD’ Crossover of 2020 Is Coming – Watch the Promo
Fans of Chicago PD, Chicago Med, and Chicago Fire will have to wait an additional week for new episodes.
The One Chicago universe is taking a break this Wednesday (February 19) as it gears up for the first crossover of 2020.
The two-part crossover excludes Chicago Med, though the series will kick off the hour with an intense episode of its own, and instead, finds PD and Fire teaming up to respond to a national epidemic.
It even brings back a beloved PD character, although, it’s not in a way that you’d expect and might not be all that great for Roman (guest star Brian Geraghty).
Here’s what to expect from the crossover airing Wednesday, February 26!
Chicago PD: Tracy Spiridakos Teases Fire/PD Crossover, ‘Upzek’’s’ Future, and Relationship with Halstead
Chicago PD and Chicago Fire are teaming up for yet another exciting crossover!
On Wednesday, Feb. 20th, Intelligence and Firehouse 51 will work together after a string of robberies lead to a building fire.
However, Tracy Spiridakos, who plays Hailey Upton, revealed that the situation might get more personal when Voight suspects a firefighter may be involved.
But aside from dosing out justice and catching bad guys, Upton’s had a pretty tough season; she’s dealt with personal childhood trauma, falling hard for a co-worker, and getting abducted.
When we spoke to Spiridakos, she not only dished about the upcoming crossover, but also elaborated more about the brewing love triangle, the state of her relationship with Burgess, and even gave us some insight about Upton’s unique relationship with Halstead.
She also addressed the #Burzek fandom who have shown a bit of animosity towards her character.
And most importantly, she told us about her love for deep dish pizza.
Check out the interview below — you won’t regret it.
We have to address Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 14. Upton and Burgess were abducted, and it was one of a few times where the two ladies shared a really powerful scene together. Tell me about that. How did that feel?
It was great. We got to do some stuff in Season 5, the one where we’re PIs both of us approached, but this one was especially intense due to not only being abducted but also Burgess finding out about Ruzek at the beginning of the episode and the tension that came with that.
But I really like how at the end, they’re bonded beyond anything they’ve ever been and they’re stronger together which is really cool!
Yeah, I love how Burgess and Upton handled their “guy drama.” Rarely do shows allow two grown women to handle something in such a mature fashion. Why was that so important for Chicago PD and specifically, for these two characters?
I think it’s important to just show exactly what you just said that two women can have a conversation about something that’s going on like that and can walk away from that and just be like “things happen, and I understand where you’re coming from and thanks for talking to me about it and we’re good.”
After what they went through as characters in being abducted and not knowing when Burgess walks in and sees Upton tied up and bleeding and not knowing what happened to her and if she was going to survive or what was going on, I think you get sort of stronger bonded going through something like that.
