In TVLine’s exclusive sneak peek from Wednesday’s episode (NBC, 10/9c), Burgess brings political consultant Blair (played by The Originals vet Davis) a morning-after pork chop sandwich — “It’s the true taste of Chicago,” she explains — which leads to some very cute banter. But then his work comes calling, prompting Burgess to wonder, “Why is the black man working so hard to make a white cop the next mayor?” For Blair, the answer is simple: Kelton (John C. McGinley) is paying him for his services.
“There’s still room on the bandwagon, if you want to join,” Blair adds. Burgess, however, firmly declines the offer, since Kelton is far from the Intelligence unit’s favorite person. Could this be the start of some underlying issues for the nascent romance?
Elsewhere in the episode, “a mayoral candidate is shot by an unidentified sniper, and CPD races to catch the shooter before he can take out his next target,” per the official synopsis.
