Working the case

While Hailey’s at the hospital, the rest of the team followed up on those leads. They discovered that the owner of the blue Nissan was a woman named Christy. Voight sent Vanessa and Kevin undercover as a couple who were looking to buy Rolex watches, as that’s what she specialized in – pawning jewelry.

While at the club, they tried to get her to take the bait, but Christy wasn’t feeling it. She walked back over to the bar, where two men got into an argument over her. Kevin saw the fight break out, and put a stop to it.

The curveball? One of those boys fighting was Kevin’s younger brother, Jordan. Kevin hauled him out of the bar, to which Vanessa innocently asked who that was. Kevin told her it was his brother, who claimed he was in Chicago to visit friends.

Kevin didn’t believe him, and wanted nothing more than for Jordan to go back to Texas where he aunt was. He ended up sending Jordan on his way, telling him to lay low. In the meantime, they picked up Christy for a round of questioning.

Voight and Rojas went toe-to-toe with Christy, telling her that she’s looking at felony murder charges. Vanessa even baited her with the fact that gangs don’t care about their girls – she would get thrown under the bus. This got Christy to talk, and she told them that she loaned her blue Nissan out to her cousin, Mitchell Adams.

Outside the interrogation room, Kevin was still worried about his brother. Voight stopped him, reminding Kevin that Jordan was going to break away from him eventually to “make his own mark.” Even though Kevin knew his boss was right, that didn’t make him feel any better about Jordan’s involvement.

Christy’s car was tested for gunshot residue, but they ultimately ruled her out thanks to her alibi. That meant they could zero in on Mitchell Adams, so they went to work on finding his place of residence.

Ruzek, Burgess, Upton, and Atwater went to the house, but upon entry, they were fired at. Upton took the offender down with a single shot; but since the offender used a machine gun, the bullets flew everywhere – including the other side of the wall where Burgess was.

A worried Ruzek peered through the wall to check on Kim, who reassured him that she was alright. She literally dodged a bullet – thank goodness, as Intelligence cannot afford to have another member take a gunshot.

They grabbed Mitchell, and he quickly gave up who gave him the guns. A 22-year-old named Trey Woodsen, who was – get this – connected to Darius Walker (recurring guest star Michael Beach).

Darius was Trey’s landlord, and Voight deduced that he must have known that Trey was dealing guns. We then saw a brief appearance of Sergeant Trudy Platt (Amy Morton), who came up to tell Kevin that Jordan was downstairs.

Jordan was waiting for Christy to be released, to which Kevin realized it’s because she and Jordan are together. Despite his warning that she’d only bring trouble, Jordan walked out of the station with Christy.

Hank went to see Darius, asking him about his knowledge of Trey and the guns. Although he insisted he didn’t know anything, Darius told Hank that he would look into it.

Darius went to visit Trey at his clothing shop, where he confronted him about his arms dealings. Trey didn’t own up to it at first, but after Darius pressed him a little, he admitted to selling guns. The one piece of information Darius didn’t get from Trey? Where the guns were held.

Voight was furious with Darius over this missing piece of info, and told Darius that he still needed to set up the buy. Darius reluctantly agreed, but told Hank he didn’t want to be there when Trey went down.

Upton and Ruzek do the buy, but instead of Trey being the one sent in, a mystery man met them. The deal didn’t happen, as Trey didn’t answer the phone when the guy called. The mystery seller drove away from 50K, but didn’t get far before Intelligence took him down.

He revealed Trey’s last known location, which was a warehouse on Racine. The team hit up the house, only to find a very dead Trey Woodsen. Even worse? Jordan Atwater was the one caught on security camera leaving Woodsen’s residence, with a gun in his hand. But was he really the one that shot Trey?
