In the last episode, we discover that Bronwyn (who helped Lewis escape) helped Yates and Rudnick escape. They are now on a warpath trying to hide from the police. Lindsey finally got her showdown with Yates as she got to see him in the final showdown. She could have taken the higher road and let him go and arrest him but instead she put him down so that he doesn’t risk hurting someone again. In this week’s episode titled, ‘A Night Owl’, find the unit looking for a drug dealer who may or may not have involved a professor.
A routine car search leads to the unit finding a trunk full of drugs in a professor’s car. He claims that he had nothing to do with it and doesn’t even know how they got there. Looking at this record, it’s easy to believe him. The unit is not sure to believe him because he has all these answers which means, a. he’s really planned this out or b. he really didn’t do it.
The unit begins to investigate the case and find that this goes so much deeper than just the car. The more that they investigate the more they start to see that there is more to the story than what is on the surface. Especially when they find a child who was killed because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. But they did find some dirt on the professor.
It’s time to try and find out where the drugs came from and how they got into the car. It all starts with the professor and the letters that he’s been writing to convicts. One of which he had a relationship with. Peter Walker. He fell in love with him and it looks like Walker may have set him up to take the fall for his deal.
Things take an interesting turn when the professor’s daughter gets kidnapped for ransom. Probably for that money that they lost out on. Well at least now when they save her (because we all know they are going to) they will find out who is behind all this. And bum…bum…bum. It is Peter and the professor and some weird-named guy named Gasper. Meanwhile, Roman tries to convince Platt that he can be a trainer for upcoming police officers. Of course, he is nervous because Platt is not an easy one to please. But if he does please her, then that means he really is ready. Ruzek keeps trying to get Burgess to talk to him, but she keeps brushing him off. She is trying to focus on her job while Ruzek continues to let his ego get bruised the more and more she rejects him. Mouse tries to get Halstead to join him on an investment with a marijuana farm that has a beautiful owner (Charisma Carpenter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Will she be competition for Lindsey?
In the next episode, there is a hate crime committed in Chicago and the unit will do anything that they can to do to solve it before the city goes crazy.
