What happened to Adam Ruzek in Chicago PD season 7

If you thought Adam Ruzek had enough on his plate last season, that was nothing compared to what Chicago PD season 7 served up for him. Ruzek’s life got upended again, thanks to the show’s desire to shake things up for his former fiancee Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati).

Ruzek and Burgess hooked up again after the events of the “Infection” crossover event, and learned several episodes later that she was pregnant. After some discussion about what Kim wanted to do with the baby, the two settled into a good and supportive relationship. Adam proposed again, which Kim declined, and was prepared to move in with her so that they could be a family unit.

Unfortunately “I Was Here” saw Burgess lose the baby as a result of a fight with a suspect. After that, things began to fall apart between them; Burgess exploded on Adam in an emotional locker room moment, and we learned in the season finale “Buried Secrets” that Ruzek had been sleeping with someone else, despite still having feelings for Kim. At least they ended the season going out for dinner together, so hopefully that’s an encouraging sign?
