NBC’s Chicago Franchise has kept their universe going strong as the universe and franchise struggles. All thanks to Marvel, who has influenced this entertainment mechanism. So, NBC came up with their own universe titled “One Chicago,” consisting of various shows. They include Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, and Chicago Med, all under the same universe. In all, the universe as of February 16, 2021 has completed 461 episodes. Speaking of Chicago PD, the series is currently going strong in its 8th season, spanning six episodes so far. While Chicago PD’s seventh episode is on its way, here we take a look at what happened before and what to expect from the next episode.
Chicago PD follows the fictional story of the 21st District. A place in the city that houses an elite team led by Detective Sergeant Hank Voight, played by Jason Beghe. The team consisted of some of the best patrol officers and members of the intelligence unit. Initially, the show focused a lot on patrolmen until season 4. The second half of the fourth season of Chicago PD focused heavily on intelligence units after the advancement of Officer Kevin Atwater, played by LaRoyce Hawkins and Officer Kim Burgess, played by Marina Squerciat. So without any more adieu, let’s see what happened earlier on the show.

Recap for Chicago PD Season 8
Previously In Chicago PD, Season 8, we saw officers trying to bring down a drug dealer named Dante. Officers waited almost six hours to follow up on information that came from one of Jay’s informants. A car’s information took them to a local garage. There, they caught a man holding a ton of heroin. Upon confronting him, the man reveals himself to be the father of murder victim Sean Wade, who is working to find out who killed his son. He was sure Dante was the person behind this.
Walde’s father, Latrell Wade was taken to the district and questioned about everything he knew about the case so far. Wade goes on to reveal all the information he has gathered about Dante so far and is discouraged when he talks about his son’s death. Hailey Upton, on the other hand, believes that Wade is telling the truth and convinces the team that they can use him to catch Dante. Hailey Upton and Halsted decide to open the file on the Sean Walde murder case. They also interviewed and took all the intel from the investigating officers of the case. Investigating officers reveal that they sympathize with the victim’s father, but the case leads to a dead end without a lead.
Halsted and Voight decide to tell Latrell Wade that one way or another, he will face charges for handling heroin. They also offer him the chance to redeem himself if he works as a defendant who cooperates against Dante in this case. Though unprepared at first, after hearing that officers might catch her son’s killer, Latrell agrees to work with the Detective even though there is little chance.

Preview For Chicago PD Season 8, Episode 7
The next and seventh episodes of Chicago PD Season 8, titled “Instinct”, will be released on February 17, 2021. The Official Synopsis of the episode states that the whole team will go undercover to bring down Dante. On the other hand, Dante is until recently considered one of the most violent drug dealers. He’s trying to suppress his competition as fast as he can. The synopsis also states that the information provided by Ruzek’s informant might have been released, making the operation a big risk. The question remains whether the informant is an asset or a liability. Check out the teaser below.
Suppose we look at it, apart from other drug cases the team has faced, this is probably the most violent one so far. Dante is one of those who does not give up easily and tear his violent ways, as seen in the promo above. We hope this episode will take us to a more personal level if we want to stand out. For the last fourth season since shifting focus to “Information Units”, this series is trying its level best to stand out. . The sixth episode definitely got us to the ground with Lateral Wade’s story. Continuing on Dante’s steps can give us a more emotional outlook. In any case, we’ll keep you updated on Chicago PD Season 8 until new episodes arrive. So keep an eye on Otakukart.
