This week’s Chicago PD put Kim Burgess through the wringer in more ways than one. Find out what happened in our Chicago PD season 7, episode 13 recap.
Chicago PD took Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) on one hell of a ride this week, both emotionally and physically. Not only did she have a new detail to contend with at a first responder call center, but when a caller led Intelligence to a sex-trafficking ring, she found herself in the thick of things.
The episode had all hands on deck, as Kim worked with both of her sergeants—Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) and Trudy Platt (Amy Morton)—to try and track down the mystery 911 caller, ultimately realizing more than one person was in danger.
Despite all the twists and turns, the one thing Burgess (and One Chicago fans) did not expect was for her personal life to become part of the case. While Intelligence cracked the investigation wide open, Kim was in for a rude awakening.

Taking the call
This Chicago PD episode started off with a very in-sync Burgess and Adam Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger), as they discussed Ruzek making a “glacial” move into Burgess’s place ahead of their baby’s arrival. But the two parted company, as they were no longer working together, at least for now.
We next saw Burgess during her new job at a 911 call center. She answered routine calls for a moment, until a young woman in obvious distress called in. Burgess tried to get the woman to speak more, but the call was disconnected. She tracked down the location, and kept tabs on the call, not happy when her screen said they’d taken no action.
Burgess headed back to the 21st District to talk to Trudy Platt, as she wanted to ask patrolmen O’Malley and Jeffries what had happened when they visited the apartment the call had been from. They explained to Burgess that the woman claimed it was a false 911 call, and they didn’t suspect any wrongdoing or domestic violence at the scene, so they left.
Despite Platt’s warning, Burgesswanted to do a follow-up herself. This meant Platt had to come with her, and Chicago PD‘s dynamic duo were reunited to head to apartment 3B, which allegedly belonged to George and Anne Weller. But why was the door open?
Platt and Burgess entered the apartment, where they found blood inside, particularly in the bathroom. There was clearly some kind of a struggle. While Platt called for a mobile crime lab, Burgess spoke to one of the neighbors, who told her “that couple fights all the time.” Kim’s first thought was perhaps Anne had killed her abusive husband in self-defense.
But George was found dead downstairs in the elevator. The two patrol officers returned, shocked at what they were being told, but they also provided one crucial piece of information. The woman they spoke to, who had claimed to be Anne Weller, was not actually Anne. Anne was a blonde; the woman the patrolmen talked with was a brunette.
Detectives Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) and Hailey Upton (Tracy Spiridakos) were back at the District interviewing the real Anne Weller. Her husband? He liked prostitutes, and their brunette, was one. George Weller paid for that girl, but who was running them? That’s what Intelligence was going to find out.
