If you are looking for a storyline that affects Chicago PD now and in the future, then keep your eyes on Hank Voight in the fall finale.
Voight, played by Jason Beghe, is in some deep stuff. Let’s see how much and what it is with some help from Matt & Jess.
This show’s fall finale is not until Wednesday, Dec. 8.
People are wondering if the wait will be worth it? Maybe. Detective Jay Halstead, played by Jesse Lee Soffer, is truly in a pickle. Does he help FBI agents take down Voight, chief of the Intelligence Unit? Or does he get into a spot where he and Detective Hailey Upton, played by Tracy Spiridakos, could face trouble?
‘Chicago PD’ Star Has To Make Decisions Around What He’ll Do With Voight
On Chicago PD, Halstead and Upton really do not have a lot of leverage in the decision.
Yet Halstead knows Voight has gone cross the line a lot of times.
Outsiders, what would you do in this situation? It’s possible Jay says nothing to the FBI just yet. Of course, he might just take a little time and talk about it with Hailey.
Either way, Halstead might see that Voight might go to trial or get in some situation where others will hold Voight accountable.
Halstead could chat it up about Voight. But there is no sure-fire promise that Voight does go to prison.
This fall finale of Chicago PD will be the last one until 2022.
It’s quite possible that the show simply has a cliffhanger about this situation. Heck, we might have some other storylines to follow heading into the spring season.
Catch another Chicago PD episode this Wednesday at 9 p.m Eastern, 8 p.m. Central, on NBC.
Jason Beghe Almost Passed On Starring In Dick Wolf-Created Drama
This is too good to be true from Jason Beghe. But it is true.
The Hank Voight actor chatted with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in September 2021. He talked about his overall career and playing Voight.
In the interview, Beghe opened up about why he nearly passed on playing Voight.
The Post-Gazette asked this question: “Every decision we make has the potential to change our future. Would you share one you consider a most consequential choice?”
Beghe said, “When I got the script and the offer to do a recurring role on Chicago Fire, I was in the middle of a lot of personal stuff.”
What was it? Well, both of Beghe’s parents had just died. He was not sure that he was going to accept the job.
But he did and started playing Voight in 2012. It’s pretty understandable that Beghe likes that role so don’t look for him to go anywhere.
