Picking up where we left off in the penultimate episode Chicago P.DIn the season 9 finale, the Secret Service attempted to bring down Escano, who fell by the wayside in his entire operation.
While Upton would be fine after that explosion that briefly knocked her unconscious, the same could not be said of the investigation. Escano was still on the run, and Anna feared he would find her and kill her like he did everyone else who betrayed him. Voight promised to place her in witness protection once she spoke to an assistant district attorney.
Meanwhile, he ordered the team to gather all the evidence to present to A.S.A. Chapman, who said they didn’t have enough for an arrest warrant. As Voight threatened to ruin her career if she didn’t help, Chapman instead issued a search warrant.
The team searched Escano’s bakery, where Voight and Halstead found him bleeding on the floor. With his last breath, he told them that Anna had stabbed him and called Voight into action to save them. He ordered the crime scene cordoned off – only Secret Service were allowed in – and said they would be off the books just in case.
Halstead confronted Voight and reminded the sergeant of their conversation from a few months ago, in which he said he would reach out before going into depth. Halstead wanted to call Anna in and claim it was self-defense, but Voight knew that wouldn’t work since she’d basically filleted Escano.
The rest of the Secret Service searched for evidence as usual, unaware that Anna was their prime suspect. Meanwhile, Voight tried his best to cover up Anna’s involvement, even purifying blood from her hearth. Upton then caught him throwing the blood-splattered parts of their car – which was on camera at the scene 20 minutes earlier – into the river and refused to cover up another murder.
Voight’s determination to save Anna led to a private conversation between Halstead and Upton about how to deal with it. Upton didn’t want a repeat of the Roy situation, and Halstead assured that he could help Voight get out of this situation the right way. But at what cost?
Ruzek, Burgess, and Atwater followed another lead while Halstead went after Voight. Upton decided to follow her husband, telling him, “Where you go, I’ll go.”
Voight followed Anna to a gas station and watched as she caused a car crash. Knowing she would go down for murder, Anna pointed her gun at Voight while he desperately tried to calm her down. But there was no getting through to her. Hearing the approaching sirens, Anna fired at Voight, forcing Upton and Halstead to open fire on Anna.
Elsewhere, the rest of the Secret Service were nearing what might be the biggest drug blast of their careers. They found tons of paraphernalia in the basement and celebrated the unexpected victory.
This was contrasted with frantic scenes in which Voight told Anna to stay with him while they were both taken to Chicago Med for treatment. Voight’s injuries were minor, however, and he was focused on her survival. But Anna died on the operating table, leaving Voight devastated, who held back tears as he stared at her body.
