With Voight (Jason Beghe) still spiraling over Anna’s (Carmela Zumbado) death—and Upton (Tracy Spiridakos) worried about her boss, but also concerned that he blamed her for being the one to pull the trigger—things came to a head between the duo and Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) on the Wednesday, September 21 season premiere of CHICAGO P.D.

“I’m okay,” Voight insisted. “I’m fine. I am okay. I’m always going to be okay. Hailey, I can look you in the eye. Anna’s death was my fault, mine alone.”

“You don’t believe that,” she replied.

“You are not my keeper. And you’re not each other’s,” Voight said to Upton. “I’m making choices you don’t like? That is on me. [Halstead]’s making choice you don’t like, that is on him. Him alone. Now we gotta be done with all of this. Now. It ever shows up on the job again, the three of us, we’re not working together anymore, understood? It’s that simple.”

He left the couple alone, who had also been butting heads about how to handle Voight going rogue.

“We’re good, right?” Halstead asked his wife.

“Yeah, of course,” Upton replied. “Right?”

“Yeah, of course,” he answered.

But, despite the momentary peace, “the tension doesn’t dissipate,” CHICAGO P.D. showrunner Gwen Sigan previews to Give Me My Remote. “The tension continues to hold over, and it sort of fractures even more. They’re in a situation where there’s just been so much fallout and they’re each dealing with it so differently—they’re sort of forced to be this little trio that is having to deal with all this in close proximity. So we’ll see that in the next few episodes coming after that, as well, of how that tension kind of escalates and then falls out.”

As Voight continues to struggle, “the team understands that Voight needs a little extra rope and care,” Beghe explained to reporters in the video below. “And that’s a tricky thing, I think, for them, because he tends to be this kind of alpha leader-y guy…It’s hard to say, ‘Hey, Hank, have a seat, let’s talk.’ But that’s what he needs.”

What could change things for Voight is the introduction of the new chief, played by Michael Gaston. “There’s a history between his character and Voight,” Beghe said. “They kind of came up through the ranks and know each other well and have a mutual respect. And now that he’s the chief, he kind of calls Voight on the way that Voight’s been handling the emotional trauma—he hasn’t really been doing his job as well as he should be. And he kind of calls him on that and forces him to [realize], ‘Hey, you got to get back to work.'”

“Voight naturally starts to become more and more who he’s supposed to be, which is the leader of an elite unit in the Chicago Police Department,” Beghe continued. “Therefore, the whole unit starts to operate a little bit more effectively…he puts his cop shoes back on.”
