Chicago PD season 1, episode 14 rewatch: The Docks

Look back at where Chicago PD began this summer. Read our retrospective on the fourteenth episode as we rewatch Chicago PD season 1, episode 14.

Over the One Chicago summer break, we’re looking back at where it all began by rewatching the first seasons of our shows—and today we’re revisiting Chicago PD season 1, episode 14.

If you want to rewatch this episode along with us, you can find Chicago PD season 1 on iTunes and DVD.

This episode is called “The Docks” and it originally aired way back on May 14, 2014 as the season was heading toward its conclusion. It was also continuing a story from Chicago Fire.

With Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) having been shot in a cliffhanger at the end of the Fire episode “A Little Taste” this episode featured Intelligence looking to get justice on his behalf.

It’s no spoiler to say that Antonio’s fate is quickly revealed near the top of the episode—after all, he would remain a series regular for most of the next five seasons! But naturally, the team went into full-on vengeance mode on his behalf.

Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) wanted to see drug lord Pulpo drowned in Lake Michigan, but Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) preferred to play by the rules. This is the kind of ideological disagreement that the show doesn’t really have anymore, and on rewatch, it’s a bit more interesting.

Given that Halstead seems to be on the path to be Voight’s replacement, whenever that time comes, will he do things differently? Or has his attitude been changed after several years on the squad? That’s a question for season 7 when it premieres in September.

“The Docks” had a few other memorable notes as well.

This episode also featured Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) making her first attempt at getting into Intelligence, and in retrospect, the reason for her denial is laughable. Voight tells her that he doesn’t want interoffice romance—which nowadays is as much a part of the show as anything else.

And this is the last episode for Sydney Poitier Heartsong as Detective Mia Sumner, but if you’ve missed her at all, you can see her playing a completely different kind of cop in the WGN America series Carter.

This isn’t one of the best episodes, but the performances by Beghe, Soffer and Elias Koteas make it work. Their chemistry carries the storyline, and this one is another one that will likely have fans still regretting that the show got rid of Alvin Olinsky. Watch a highlight by playing the video below!
