Kim Burgess has an enormous resolution to make on Chicago P.D. This Wednesday’s episode (NBC, 10/9c) will see the Intelligence cop assume severely about who will develop into Makayla’s custodial guardian within the occasion that one thing occurs to her.
It’s a heavy option to make, and one that’s exacerbated by the truth that she has such a high-risk job. As Burgess contemplates a call which will have an effect on Makayla’s future, we’re additionally going to see her attempt to determine the work-life stability. At least she has a fantastic help system, which incorporates her mentor Platt and, sure, even Ruzek.
Despite the pair being out of types in current weeks — Burgess questioned Ruzek’s character, and he did not take kindly to that — Marina Squerciati, who performs Burgess, says they nonetheless have one another’s again.
“He’s pushing me off as a result of he is indignant with me, so there’s an iceberg between us proper now,” she tells TVLine. “But I wish to assume that regardless of who’s mad at who in our relationship, there’s this epic basis that you would be able to’t crack. We’re endgame.” (They actually must get it collectively, although!)
Expect a minimum of one main “Burzek” second throughout the hour. For these hoping to see Burgess and Halstead actually work together, nonetheless, you are out of luck. As you may recall, each characters have hardly ever shared vital display screen time and seem like digital strangers, regardless of working collectively for years.
Squerciati notes that there is not any unhealthy blood between the 2, and that their lives are simply targeted on various things (like Burgess’ adoption of Makayla, and Halstead taking an enormous leap ahead with Upton).
“I believe they’ve an excellent working relationship,” she explains. “But I additionally assume that, a minimum of proper now, Jay and Kim are simply not a appropriate duo… When you cut up the road of who’s Team [Police] Reform, it is extra Jay, Kevin and Kim, after which Upton and Ruzek and Voight are capable of go rogue. So I do assume [Halstead and Burgess] have that in frequent.”
