Jason Beghe Talks ‘Chicago P.D’ Finale
Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) is definitely not one to mess with, but if anyone can, it’s Det. Lindsay (Sophia Bush). So will she consult him in the finale when she gets into trouble with Charlie?
“[Det. Lindsay] kind of comes clean to Voight,” Jason tells HollywoodLife.com. “You get a lot more data disseminated about her past and Voight’s relationship.”
And, it’s no surprise that Voight’s feelings for her don’t change — he’s taken care of her from day one. “Voight is a guy who deals with things in the moment and he’s fiercely loyal, and that is his girl,” the actor tells us EXCLUSIVELY.

HollywoodLife.com: How do you get into character as Voight?
Jason: “I was like, ‘What would you do to protect your daughter, your son from harm? Serious harm?’ And I think he feels that way about everyone in Chicago. He really cares — it’s a powerful, dry love.”
Tell me about tonight’s confrontation between Lindsay and Charlie.
“Yeah, well it’s very big. To stay on the subject of Sophia [Bush] — she’s a wonderful person and a wonderful actress and a big personality just as a human being. The work she does in this episode…I personally think she brings it to a whole new level. And part of that is very intimate and difficult self disclosure when she kind of comes clean to Voight, and within that scene and certain other scenes she has with Charlie, you get a lot more data disseminated about her past and Voight’s relationship to it. So that I think people get a kick out of [it] and she plays it seamlessly.”
Do his feelings towards Lindsay change?
“Does it change? No. Voight is a guy who deals with things in the moment and he’s fiercely loyal and that is his girl. He has given his heart and his mind, his time, his home and just as he is with his son. When he sends him off to the army, it was out of love. It was the best way he felt he could care for him. So it’s not this soft warm fuzzy ‘honey lets work this out in therapy.’ He’s pretty cut and dry, but that’s how he loves. And Lindsay would probably do it differently and every character would handle things differently, and I think that’s what it’s about. Everybody has the intention is similar. It’s to love or to help or whatever, and there [are] as many way of doing it as there are people. And I think that’s what the show’s about.”
Is it safe to assume there’s a huge cliffhanger in the finale?
“I am not legally answered to answer that question! Yeah there’s a cliffhanger. I don’t even know the answer. I have my opinions, but it’s always a surprise to me too. Yeah, definitely…there’s room for conjecture.”
Do we see more with Burgess & Ruzek’s relationship?
“Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. That’s all I can say. Yes. You do see a little more of that relationship and I like it, frankly. And I’m kind of sweet on both those guys too. Yeah, I think there’s chemistry there.”
