Chicago Fire may be NBC’s go-to hour for infernos, but it’s Chicago P.D.‘s Lindsay and Halstead who generated the heat when they finally gave in to their feelings on last week’s episode.
On Wednesday’s hour (10/9c), the long-awaited pair “picks up right where they left off” – which if you recall was in the throes of passion (photographic evidence below) – star Jesse Lee Soffer previews.
The twosome will keep the new development in their relationship a secret, “but they’re going to play with, ‘Alright, we’ve put our feet in the water now. Do we tell people? Do we not tell people?’” Soffer continues.
And there’s one person, in particular, whose potential reaction has them worried. “The big question is, do we tell Voight?” costar Sophia Bush says. Adds Soffer: “I’m sure he’s going to find out at some point and we’ll see the wrath of what that looks like afterwards.”
But thus far, the dilemma of whether or not to fill in Voight on their romantic status “has not been answered yet,” Bush reveals.
Meanwhile, the actress is happy to be “adding another layer to peel away of the onion of who these people are.”
“A relationship that starts out of a years-old friendship, obviously, is very different from one that starts because you meet someone at a bar and you go on a date,” she describes. “There is rapport. There is intimate knowledge. There’s a shorthand. I think that’s what the fans are excited about. That’s what we’re excited about exploring is how are all those things affected [or not] by this new dynamic.”
