For fans of NBC’s ‘Chicago Fire’ and ‘Chicago P.D.’ it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. The first episode of the highly anticipated crossover arc airs on Feb. 3– but some of the team is in serious danger.
We thought this day might never come! In a rare crossover, Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. will unite in a joint storyline and we have a sneak peek to get you pumped for the event! The episodes will focus on some of the shows’ couples (we’re looking at you, Lindstead!) However, it’s not all light and lovey. Check out the video to see Brett (Kara Killmer) come face to face with a knife-wielding pyscho, and whether or not Mills (Charlie Barnett) is able to help her.
‘Chicago Fire’ & ‘Chicago P.D.’ Crossover Sneak Peek
Along the way, we see Brett and Mills respond to a call in which we see a clearly ill man screaming for the police in a front yard. Brett, being the (sometimes to a fault) bold woman that she is, tells Mills to hold off on calling the cops until she has a moment to speak to him.
As she attempts to reason with the man, all he can keep saying is “I don’t want to hurt anyone” as well as “policeee!”
Mills does call the police, but it might be too late. The man charges full speed ahead at Brett and pulls out a knife and holds it to her neck.
And then the clip has the nerve to end!
The Future Of Lindstead
The storylines won’t be all life or death situations though.
The crossover arc will also feature further developments in the relationship of Lindsay (Sophia Bush) and Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) aka Lindstead.
In an interview with our sister site TV Line, Chicago Fire executive producer Matt Olmstead said, though he resisted putting the two together for a long time, he felt that it was true to reality that the two would get together.
“We just wanted to embrace the real-world aspects,” Matt said. “You’re both single, you sit across from each other. There’s that heat when he took her to her reunion and all of a sudden now she doesn’t work there anymore. I mean, come on, 99.9% of the American population would act on that. So we did, and then she realizes that the grass is always greener, so she comes back to Intelligence and they’ve got to shut it down. How long? Who knows.
