Chicago P.D. Season 3 Spoilers

Chicago P.D. Preview: Can Halstead Save a 'Checked Out' Lindsay?

The party’s still going for Lindsay when Chicago P.D. returns on Sept. 30 (NBC, 10/9c).

After heading down a dark spiral and turning in her badge following pal/colleague Nadia’s death, the detective is “checked out” during the Season 3 opener, executive producer Matt Olmstead tells TVLine.

“She’s at a club, drunk,” the EP says. While her mentor/father figure Voight is “heartbroken,” he has to move on and accept that Lindsay isn’t going to come back to the force. Her ex, however, has a different point of view on the matter.

Chicago P.D. Season 3 Spoilers“Halstead’s the one who doesn’t really want to believe it’s true,” Olmstead reveals, adding that he even goes as far as confronting Lindsay outside the club and telling her, “‘I want to hear it face-to-face: Tell me that you’re done.’ She tells him she’s done, and he walks away. Her last champion walks away.”

Needless to say, there won’t be any kind of romantic rekindling — at least, “initially” — between the former couple. “His only concern is, ‘I’m just trying to get her to live,'” Olmstead says.

Meanwhile, Lindsay’s drowning in “self-loathing” and dealing with her mother Bunny, “who’s more than happy to keep the party going because [she] finally got [her] daughter back. It’s very unhealthy.”

The debauchery is put on pause when one of the Intelligence team members gets in “dire straits” in the season premiere and Lindsay volunteers to help with the case. Lindsay’s return to work “creates a major triangle between Bunny, Lindsay and Voight, because Bunny now feels very spiteful towards Voight,” the EP previews. “He did it again. He pried [away her] daughter.”

But will Lindsay remain on the Intelligence Unit? “Offering [her] services to help out on this case is different than actually getting her job back,” Olmstead points out. “Getting her job back is a bigger journey. She has to prove [herself] to a lot of people. She walked away. She handed her badge in.”

    I’m so excited!!! Love chicago pd and I really can’t wait till season 3 starts. I love the father/daughter relationship with Erin and Voight. It’s gonna be intense!! Hurry!!!

  3. Ashley says:

    Love Erin and also her relationship with Voight. This SL is great for her as it allows us to peel away more layers and really get an insight of who she is.

  4. Nancy says:

    I agree that they spend way too much time on Erin, but people love her and that is PD’s bread and butter, so they will continue to do so.

  5. MK says:

    Love Lindsey and Chicago PD!

  6. Tara says:

    Love Erin too. Can’t wait to see what happens. Looking forward to season 3.

  7. Bwhit says:

    I like Erin and think this storyline has done justice to the backstory about her. I don’t think it’s Jay’s job to save her though, she has to pull herself up on her own to truly recover. Can’t wait for season three!!!

  8. Marybeth says:

    Wow Erin is a big part of the back story of the unit…voight basically took her under his wing as a father figure because her mother has issues…everything she does effects him because she is like a daughter to him so yeah maybe her storyline gets played out more than everyone elses but it makes for damn good TV…if y’all dont like it how about you dont watch the show…instead of talking crap and calling someone a hack! She is an amazing actress and its not her fault they play out her story line….get over it!
