Chicago PD returns next week, and there are questions that need answers. Here’s what Chicago PD season 6 has to answer in the second half.

It’s almost time for new Chicago PD episodes, and when the series returns for the second half of its season, there are quite a few questions left to answer.

While audiences wait to see what happens with the Chicago PD season 6 cliffhanger, the rest of the Intelligence Unit has plenty to figure out, too. There’s a lot on the line in these next 13 episodes.

Check out our three things to watch for below, and let us know what you’ll be watching out for in the comment section at the bottom of this article.

Then don’t miss the return of Chicago PD next Wednesday, Jan. 9 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC!

1. Will Antonio be able to salvage anything?

Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) is on the hot seat when Chicago PD starts up again, but make no mistake: it’s not as simple as covering up that death.

Even if Antonio gets away with that accidental death, he’s still got a host of problems. He still has that drug addiction, and he has issues with his family that must be repaired. How will his daughter recover from being abducted? How will she and his ex-wife treat him now since what happened was caused by his behavior?

Antonio has a lot of baggage that he needs to unpack, so hopefully the show won’t gloss over that and just focus on Intelligence’s cover-up of the guy who went out the window.

2. How far will politics go?

Politics is the theme of Chicago PD season 6, but it’s only reared its head in small places through the first nine episodes. It feels like there’s something much bigger coming, and with politics, the story always gets messy.

Producer Rick Eid has confirmed that Wendell Pierce will appear in the second half of the season, reprising his role as Alderman Ray Price. Price is pretty ruthless, so he’s not going to show up just to say hello. What will he do and will he lean on Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) again?

Deputy Superintendent Katherine Brennan (recurring guest star Anne Heche) already is, and it’s kind of obvious that she and Price will be on opposite sides. There wouldn’t be any drama if they had the same agenda. So there’s going to be fireworks over something, and Voight and the team will get caught in the middle.

3. Are Ruzek and Upton committed?

So Adam Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger) wants Hailey Upton (Tracy Spiridakos) to move in with him. Is she actually going to do it? What would that tell Chicago PD fans about their relationship?

It’s a big commitment, but remember that Ruzek is the same character who proposed marriage to Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) a few seasons ago, so this wouldn’t be the biggest move he’s ever made. It would say more about Upton and how seriously she’s taking her involvement with Ruzek; she’s been pretty cagey about her personal life so far.

And if they are going to make that kind of commitment, do they have to come out and finally tell the team that they’re dating? After all, wouldn’t everyone else notice if they’re coming in together and/or leaving together, unless they continue to sneak around? This could be one big can of ship drama about to open.

dark. Next. Where will Chicago PD take Upton next?
