When ‘Chicago P.D.’ returns for season three, the emotions are definitely running high! HollywoodLife.com spoke to Sophia Bush ahead of the Sept. 30 premiere, and she told us why it is that Det. Lindsay makes her way back.
The last time we saw Det. Lindsay (Sophia Bush), she was choosing a beer with her mom over her badge — and she turned her back on her partner Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) and on her boss, Voight (Jason Beghe). We see in the trailer for the premiere that she’ll have to return to save Halstead’s life — but will she stay? And how will everyone react?
“She turned in her badge, she’s filled with guilt and can’t see a way out of it. People keep reaching out and try to get her to come back to work and she’s really just not having it. I think it’s a really accurate description of what can happen to people when they’re suffering,” Sophia told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “She’s not gonna do it for herself. When it comes to herself, she sort of closes the door on that — she knows that when someone else’s life is on the line, she’s not going to risk it happening again. She’s just not willing to lose another person.”
With that, Lindsay will head back to save Halstead — and realize something she wasn’t expecting.
“The things that happen, things they go through that day, actually remind her of who she is and what she’s good at — and kind of the way she can be useful and of service. That turns out to be the unexpected thing that helps her get out of this sort of hole that she;s dug herself into.”
So, will Halstead and Voight welcome her back with open arms? Well, not exactly. “Everyone has different reactions. Voight is very angry. Hank wears a very angry mask for pain. He’s very sad she’s gone. When she sees him, he’s screaming at her, because that’s easier than crying.”
Do you think that Lindsay and Voight will make up? Let us know. Tune in to Chicago P.D. onWednesdays at 10PM on NBC.
