“Chicago PD” Season 1, Episode 5: “Thirty Balloons” airs Wednesday on NBC.
In this episode, Atwater and Burgess are given a new patrol car, but are challenged with keeping it brand new. A run in with a psychotic woman leads the Intelligence Unit to discover a drug smuggling operation which has put several girl’s lives in peril. Voight’s overprotective act with Lindsay leads her right where he doesn’t want as she also helps to keep Justin out of trouble. Meanwhile on stakeout, things get tense between Olinsky and Ruzek as Olinski tries to teach him the finer points of surveillance.
NBC describes the show as follows:
From Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf and the team behind “Chicago Fire” comes “Chicago PD”, a riveting police drama about the men and women of the Chicago Police Department’s District 21 who put it all on the line to serve and protect their community. District 21 is made up of two distinctly different groups: the uniformed cops who patrol the beat and go head-to-head with the city’s street crimes and the Intelligence Unit that combats the city’s major offenses – organized crime, drug trafficking, high profile murders and beyond. The vast responsibilities that these jobs entail extend far beyond the walls of the precinct, often taking an emotional toll on personal lives of these men and women.
“Chicago PD” season 1, episode 5 airs Feb. 5 at 10 p.m. EST on NBC.
