In the last episode, Linstead declared their love for each other and decided to move in together, Mouse told Halstead he was heading back to Afghanistan and Platt stood up for Tay to her domineering former boss.
The episode opens with a dinner between Platt and her father. She heads out shortly thereafter and gets assaulted on the way to her car! She gets hit in the head a few times and the perpetrator steals her gun before she can hit the panic button on her keys, forcing him to run off.
She is rushed to Chicago Med where Dr. Rhodes (Colin Donnell) starts work right away. Halstead stays with her at the hospital while the rest of the team looks for leads.
Voight takes point on the investigation. He seems to feel it personally because he has known Platt for 20 years and vows to track down who did this. While Olinsky (Elias Koteas) who also has a history working with Platt monitored the neighborhood and discovered that someone has installed a camera in one of the electric boxes.
Burgess is told to take care of other city business because enough officers are helping Intelligence canvas the area but she talks to Ruzek (John Patrick Flueger) and Atwater about checking security footage in the district. This leads them to a disgruntled employee at a local convenience store who knows that Platt was having dinner with her father.
Olinsky, Ruzek and Atwater go to Mr. Platt’s house and find that he has been shot to death after possibly being tortured.
Lindsay and Halstead have to break the news to Platt and when she acts unusual, they realize she is hiding something. They find out that she ran records on her father’s new girlfriend Natalie (Lilia Vasileva) and her ex-boyfriend Wade McGregor (Gideon Emory).
Olinsky and Burgess track them down but McGregor ends up getting away. After Burgess spills some investigative details to Platt, the latter breaks out of the hospital and tracks down McGregor herself.
She wants to get justice for her father herself but Voight shows up before she can cross the line. Platt breaks down over the death of her father and Voight takes McGregor into custody.
I really expected this to be about Tay’s former commanding officer when I first saw the previews and I have to admit I was a little disappointed when it wasn’t. The episode wasn’t bad but didn’t really impress me all that much. I’m a fan of Platt and Amy Morton was terrific but otherwise it sort of just seemed like a filler episode.
There is a new episode next Wednesday at 10 p.m.
