CHICAGO P.D.’s Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger) faced one of their biggest relationship hurdles recently, as their daughter, Makayla (Ramona Edith Williams), was kidnapped.

Though the duo were equally determined to get their girl back, they had different approaches on how to handle it, swinging between being supportive and butting heads throughout the ordeal. And while Makayla was found safe, the fractures in the relationship remain.

They’re in a fragile place in the immediate aftermath,” CHICAGO P.D. showrunner Gwen Sigan previously teased. “Makayla, of course, is the priority, and both Burgess and Ruzek are trying their best; they love each other and work well as co-parents, but this situation has definitely cracked some of that foundation.”

“Things will come to a head,” she continued. “And they will need to hash out the emotional and logistical fall out for their family.”

In the Wednesday, April 6 episode, “Adrift,” the co-parents work on putting Makayla first—while trying to figure out where they stand with each other.

“I don’t know that would verbally [redefine their relationship], but I think that there are…they’ve both grown, right?” Squerciati said to reporters in the video below during One Chicago Day. “I think Burgess was waiting for a long time for Ruzek to sort of stop being such a hothead, and he is still that person—but it’s not as crazy.”

“I think they both adapted to each other, but I think that there’s still more [to go],” she continued. “It’s like they want to be together and their puzzle doesn’t fit perfectly. They need to adapt a little more, and maybe even go away from each other for a little bit, to sort of dull the edges or sharpen corners, in order to fit better.”

And while they may be struggling right now, Squerciati has hope for the off-on couple. “I do ultimately think that they belong together—just not quite yet.”

    To be honest Adam and Kim deserves better than each other they need to break up for good and date other people this back and forth between them wasn’t good and it’s getting old and tiresome either break them up for good and find other people to date them or have them keep their distance from each other and only be together unless it’s business purposes and nothing else.
    I don’t want them together romantically again and again and again and again anymore.
