Every action has its consequences, and now the characters on Chicago P.D. are dealing with theirs.
The NBC police drama's season nine finale left the Chicago officers in a dark place. Not only was Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) shot by his informant, Anna Avalos (Carmela Zumbado), after trying to protect her from the Los Temidos gang, but Anna herself was shot and killed by Hailey Upton (Tracy Spiridakos) immediately after.
Picking up two weeks after the finale chaos, Hailey contemplates her decision in E! News' exclusive sneak peek of the show's Sept. 21 season 10 premiere.
"We can't take another drug case from there," Hailey tells her fellow detective and husband, Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer). The station has been working extra hard to wipe the neighborhood of gang violence and drugs, a move Hailey isn't certain of.
"You saw the new chief," she adds. "He knows Voight's A.W.O.L."
But Jay has faith in their new leader's decision. "He just wants to keep the neighborhood clean of drugs so Anna's death means something," he responds. "I get that."
Hailey gets it, too, as she reminds him, "I'm the one who shot her."
Since the fatal incident, Hailey and Voight haven't been on good terms. Anna's death was a difficult one for the sergeant, as he formed a close bond with her last season.
"Voight won't even look at me," Hailey tells her husband. "I don't think he's okay."
Like all hard things, Jay assures Hailey that Voight just needs some time to process and regroup. "Why don't you and the team get started on whatever the chief sent," he says before begrudgingly taking the new drug case off her hands. "I'll go take care of this on my own."
It looks like Hailey's actions have not only jeopardized her relationship with Voight, but possibly her marriage, as well.
Check out the preview above to see the dark aftermath of Anna's death.
