Chicago PD Season 3 Spoilers

Chicago P.D.'s Jesse Lee Soffer Says 'Linstead' Road-Trip Is Very Revealing

“Lindstead” fans, buckle up: Both members of the Chicago P.D. couple will spill their backstories to each other when a case sends them off on an emotionally revealing trek to Green Bay, Wis., in Episode 15.

While driving to pick up a witness, Lindsay and Halstead are “going to spend a lot of time in the car talking,” star Jesse Lee Soffer previews.

And once you open up those floodgates, it seems, they can’t be closed. “We’re going to learn a lot about Lindsay, her family and her meeting Voight, and a lot about Jay, his family and the military,” Soffer continues.

The actor warns that the installment is still in the process of being written, but “as far as I know, we’re going to start hearing some backstory into Jay and Mouse and being in Afghanistan together,” Soffer shares. Additionally, viewers will get insight into why the cop “was maybe troubled or turned around before and how he found himself getting out of that situation.”

The atypical hour was inspired by last season’s Burgess and Roman-centric, bottle-like episode, which was one of the most popular among viewers during end-of-year-testing, executive producer Derek Haas reveals.

“It was so fun doing it, and it was different,” Haas says. “This year when we looked at what episodes [executive producer] Michael [Brandt] and I were going to write, and we saw the 15th slot, which is the same slot as last time and Nick [Gomez] was going to direct it again, we thought, ‘OK, what can we do differently?’ At first, we had the idea that we were going to do maybe a stakeout… Then I think it was [Michael] who said, ‘What if we put Lindsay and Halstead on the road?’ So we got excited about that.”

Until that journey to Green Bay, the twosome, shockingly, enjoy a period of smooth sailing. When asked what the pair’s next challenge is, Soffer replies, “You know what? Right now, I don’t think there is [one].”

“For the time being, we’re going to see a little bit more freedom for them, and they’re going to be enjoying not having Voight breathing down their neck all time, ’cause he signed off on [the relationship],” he adds. “We’re going to see them enjoy being cops and having their flirtation on the side.”

    Finally! Backstory. Really excited about this episode, this is going to be a looooooong wait. I liked the bottle episode last season a lot, I think sometimes this show needs a slower pace.

  2. MFt says:

    Definitely looking forward to learning more about Halstead.

  3. Those bastards cut antonio’s storyline in the fall finale cause it was too much but these two annoying jerks get a whole episode? Screw you Chicago PD.

    • Anon says:

      Since you’re reading into this too much, you should know by now Antonio’s story is not entirely cut from the show altogether just delayed. There’s still 5 episodes before 315, who’s to say Anotnio wouldn’t get his own episode within the next 5? It’s not a competition, hun, if you put the Antonio’s storyline in the finale, it would just be completely out of focus and will not mesh well with the story on Voight. Stop hating other characters because yours didn’t get his limelight and get over it.

      Also, I may find Lindsay too much sometimes, but “annoying”? You have to qualify that statement otherwise you just sound exaggerated and whiny.

    Do you guys see what I see?

  5. I’ve been hoping for more backstory on Jay and Mouse and Afghanistan for a while, so I’m really looking forward to this. Doing “bottle episodes” to put characters in different situations where they have to dig deep and reveal more about themselves is a great idea.

  7. Danodebrew says:

    Did they actually go to Green Bay to film some scenes?

  8. Shelly says:

    Love the Jay and Mouse bromance and can’t wait to get their backstory. Caught the episode where Mouse was taken hostage and started watching the show. Mouse seems like he has so many layers to him. He’s different than the cops who sometimes seem interchangeable.
