Tonight, the Chicago PD season 7 premiere entered the picture with a number of big questions in need of being answered, but the big one was simply this: Who killed Kelton? The Mayor-elect was murdered at the end of season 6 and within this episode, the folks over at Intelligence did everything within their power to get answers.
The fear this time around was that Voight was the responsible party, and for good reason. He’s got a history of acting out vigilante justice, he was no fan of Kelton, and there were some circumstances that made him seem as though he was a likely candidate for the act.
Yet, in the end it was another notable character who pulled the trigger on the act: Brennan. She went from working with Kelton to killing him and after Voight learned the truth, he did everything within his power in order to ensure that she could dictate her own end to her story. He gave her the time to take her own life, but then Halstead did his part in order to ensure that justice was served the proper way. She’s under arrest and she doesn’t get that chance to remove herself completely.
This, as you would imagine, made Voight livid … and it sets the stage for what could be a central conflict for the show moving forward. There have long been ideological differences between Voight and members of his team, and we’re getting to the point now where the rubber meets the road.
Where is Antonio?
This was the other mystery at the heart of the episode and yet, in the end there are no clear answers. It seems as though he is off in the wind after spending time with his former sponsor. He may be using and his pain is overwhelming him. There may be answers coming, but the writers don’t seem intent on giving you immediate information about this.
We know that Jon Seda is no longer a regular on Chicago PD so in the event he does return at some point in the future, don’t be surprised if this is a far-from-permanent end to the story.
