The trailer for the upcoming Chicago PD episode reveals that Upton is being courted by the FBI offering a joint-level task force, and Halstead (who has some experience with losing FBI associates) doesn’t seem thrilled about it.
Upton closes the Chicago PD trailer saying he could tell her that he doesn’t want her to take it. Viewers will have to wait until 2021 to see what the FBI offer means (or doesn’t mean) to them.
Their relationship has never been short on complexities, but Rick Eid’s comments indicate that Halstead and Upton will give dating a shot. They both have experience with dating partners as well as those relationships that end badly in Chicago PD
Chicago PD’s breakthrough pointing to the FBI’s offer pushing them toward each other at least suggests that this time no one has to be shot for any emotional fulfillment, though it shouldn’t rule anything out.
Atwater found a way to handle Nolan that should eliminate him as a threat to Atwater and the rest of the team in Chicago PD, and he did so without reaching a deal or sacrificing his career, but Intelligence still faces challenges within Chicago PD.
Unfortunately, we will have to wait until next year to find out, as the third episode of Chicago PD season 8 will not be released until Wednesday. January 6, 2021.
