What’s happened so far
This season of Chicago PD has been relatively quiet for Voight, when you compare it to how much trouble he has gotten into in past seasons.
He was briefly suspended in the season premiere by Deputy Superintendent Katherine Brennan (new recurring guest star Anne Heche), with whom Voight formed an unofficial alliance after she agreed to clear Alvin Olinsky’s (Elias Koteas) name. Though Voight was asked not to show up at his best friend’s memorial, he did make it possible for Meredith Olinsky to collect her husband’s pension.
Since then, most of Voight’s scenes in the first nine episodes have either been with Brennan as he tries to navigate the murky world between policing and politics, or his usual material where he has to keep the rest of the Intelligence Unit in line.
The first episode implied that Voight had serious emotional issues after losing Olinsky (showing a battered Voight who didn’t turn up for work until Platt went looking for him), but that hasn’t been factored into his character in the rest of the episodes. So how is he really doing now? Well, that’s anyone’s guess.
