Showrunner Gwen Sigan uncovers to TVLine that Episode 2 of Season 10 will be revolved around #Burzek and address whether or not they will move in together, what that would resemble and what it will mean for their relational peculiarity with Makayla.
“We’ll find a few solutions,” Sigan tells TVLine. “They’re starting off and getting somewhat more steady and surefooted in that second episode of this season.”
Marina Squerciati, who plays Burgess, takes note of that the Knowledge official will “get to a place where she’ll choose whether to make it happen or not, regardless of whether to push ahead involved with Ruzek. There’s something else to chip away at, however it’s a thrilling move for the two of them.”
Squerciati addressed Sigan about why Kim had been hesitant to incline toward a relationship with Ruzek, and the Chicago P.D. manager made sense of that Kim being taken shots toward the finish of Season 8 impacted her in a manner she had not yet perceived.
“She’ll come to comprehend that it has truly broken her and harmed her, and that has impacted her relationship with Ruzek,” Squerciati portions of Sigan’s clarification. “She really wants to address herself before she pushes ahead with him.”
The exit of Jay Halstead
Season 10 will see Jesse Lee Soffer depart the series as Det. Jay Halstead. According to Sigan, his impending exit won’t be a sudden thing.
“Hopefully, it all makes sense when everyone sees the episode that he’s departing in, and we did build to it, and we did have a chance to do that,” she says. “We tried to keep it as grounded [as possible] and do justice to Jesse and how great he is. He puts in a very good performance in all of it. It’s going to be really impactful.”
Halstead’s departure will have a big impact on Upton, who will have to deal with not having her husband around. “It’s going to be really interesting, something new for her character to have to combat,” Sigan teases. “It’s a challenge and she’s going to have to get through it. We’ll see her go in some interesting places and how it sort of manifests itself.”
