Chicago PD completed its latest Chicago Fire crossover in Burden of Truth. Find out what happened in our Chicago PD season 7, episode 15 recap.

This week’s Chicago PD was the conclusion of a crossover with Chicago Fire, and another grim story coming out of the darkest show in the One Chicago universe,

Wednesday’s episode “Burden of Truth” saw Intelligence on the hunt for a drug dealer whose product was responsible for several overdoses in the city, some of them fatal. But would he also be short-lived?

Meanwhile, ex-partners and ex-lovers Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Sean Roman (special guest star Brian Geraghty) teamed up again, which was awkward and painful all around—in his case literally.

Aftermath of the fire

Picking up where the previous episode left off, Roman claims that drug dealer Logan was in the basement and had been shooting at him. Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) go in, where they find basketball player Travis with a gunshot wound. He’s the one who started the fire.

As paramedics treat Travis, Roman yells at Severide for letting Logan get away, and Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), Adam Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger) and Burgess roll up. Voight says Burgess will take Roman’s statement, which isn’t awkward at all.

As soon as they’re alone, Burgess demands to know why Roman didn’t come to Intelligence first. She points out that he could be considered a suspect if she wants him to. So Roman finally confesses: “She’s dealing for him,” he admits, referring to his missing sister. Which would make Sarah just as liable for the recent deaths as Logan is. Burgess asks Roman to trust her.

Chicago PD then cuts to Hailey Upton (Tracy Spiridakos) and Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) getting the latest update from Chicago Med. They walk right into a fight between Travis’s parents and an angry man, which is not really being broken up by the paramedics from Ambulance 61. Upton and Halstead finally put a stop to it.

Travis makes it out of surgery, though, and tells Halstead and Upton that he found out where Logan was and confronted him over the death of Travis’s girlfriend. “I was just trying to make it right,” he insists, and they don’t answer when he asks if he’s going to jail.

Meanwhile, Trudy Platt (Amy Morton) gives Roman a big hug and a patrol cop awkwardly tries to apologize to Burgess about her miscarriage. When Roman asks what that’s about, Burgess tells him only that she was injured on the job. He then gives a proper statement to Voight, who says that if Intelligence finds Sarah first, they’ll do what they can to protect her. He also makes Roman and Burgess temporary partners again.
