The reverend who wasn’t

Jay Halstead and Hailey Upton (Jesse Lee Soffer and Tracy Spiridakos) visit the church, but find the reverend shot twice in a back room. Ballistics confirm that he was killed by the same gun that murdered Blair. Oh, and he’s got a past with drugs, too, which just lends more credence to Voight’s theory.

Burgess and Dawson run into Blair’s sister Maya in the lobby, which is all kinds of awkward for Burgess as she pulls the other woman into a room and asks point-blank if Blair had a drug problem. Maya says the drugs actually belonged to their father, and Blair was just covering for his dad. So who does Burgess believe?

She goes with Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) to Blair’s hotel room and for the first time, Chicago PD gives us a glimpse of who this guy actually was beyond politics. Of course, there’s the angst of Kim seeing a photo of the two of them together…and it only gets worse when Antonio finds a necklace that Blair was planning to give her.

But more relevant to the case are the binders upon binders of opposition research Blair had on Ray Price (recurring guest star Wendell Pierce), his associates and his family. Ruzek has also found an associate of Reverend Dennis, who says she saw him being dropped off by “some kind of official car.” It also had a bumper sticker for Price’s Future Chicago campaign. So at the halfway point, Chicago PD has Voight on Price’s doorstep asking why his car was involved in a crime.

Price is no fool, and knows Voight isn’t there for a drink. He calls Dennis “a cold, coke-slinging punk” and says he told the other man to find somewhere else to do business. He also points Voight toward the area shot-caller, Nate Lewis, so the team pays Nate a home visit. Antonio tries to be diplomatic, but Burgess turns it up to eleven and muscles her way into his house. She and Upton find the murder weapon in his garage.
