TVGuide.com – In front of the camera, Marina Squerciati and LaRoyce Hawkins protect the tough streets of Chicago as cops on NBC’s Chicago P.D.. But behind the scenes, these two actors have a whole host of other skills up their sleeves — including rapping!
Although their characters Kim Burgess and Kevin Atwater no longer work together on the sophomore drama (Wednesdays, 10/9c), the duo’s off-screen partnership seems just as close as ever — as evidenced by their very memorable duet as performed especially for TVGuide.com.
In the exclusive TVGuide.com video below, the team behind “Burgewater” reunite to give viewers a very special, and very informative, tour of the Chicago P.D. set. Want to get the behind-the-scenes story about the Intelligence Unit’s “wall of danger”? Ever wondered what’s really in those evidence bags? And why does Hawkins have a photo of co-star Patrick John Flueger’s family on his character’s desk? Find out all that and more and in the hilarious video below:
Windycitymediagroup.com – Actress Sophia Bush really puts her money where her mouth is. Originally starring in the hit TV series One Tree Hill brought Bush in the spotlight for almost a decade. She followed up the role with several movies, including John Tucker Must Die, which stars Jesse Metcalfe as the title hunk. She was in the short-lived Partners, from the creators of Will & Grace, before landing her latest small-screen hit.
NBC’s spin-off from Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., has her playing Officer Erin Lindsay for a second season.
Nunn went on set to chat a bit with the talented activist during a long day of fighting crime.
Windy City Times: Hi, Sophia. You are shooting all day today?
Sophia Bush: Yeah, I am on a little break so we can chat.
WCT: First off, did you study with local police a lot for this role?
Sophia Bush: We did a ton of work. We came into Chicago and did a full week of boot camp with the CPD [Chicago Police Department] Intelligence Unit. We worked with really cool undercover officers that I can’t talk to you about! [Laughs]
We did a very immersive training course and we have consultants that are set with us every day. We have police that are constantly breaking things down with us, working through motions, and talking about situations such as if they went into a warehouse where they would be looking and checking? It is really important and invaluable to us.
All of our stories come from real police. Some of this stuff is just so crazy. All of it comes from the police that we work with.
WCT: How do you feel this second season has grown from the first?
Sophia Bush: We all have been talking about how this season feels. It has taken a step up. Last season was great, but this season is fucking awesome! It is on a whole other level. I think it is because everyone has been marinating in it for long enough that it that so many things don’t come with a question. You are starting to know these characters that are just in you and becomes second nature to you. You can respond in a way that you would respond.
We have such an amazing writing staff who has been so smart in the way that they’ve slow-drifted all of the information about who these people are. This season we are really getting into the meat of where our characters come from, why they are the way they are, and what sort of fires they were forged in, if you will. The audience is really loving it. We are really loving it because it feels juicy. We are getting a lot of liberties that were previously reserved for cable TV on a big network show that is capable of doing big network action. I think we are doing something really special.
It’s breakfast at the Voight household and he and Justin’s girlfriend Olive continue to bond. She admits to needing financial help with the baby on the way and Voight offers to help, once again hitting up the safe in his basement for cash. But before he opens the safe, two thugs appear right behind him – and they want all his money. Voight refuses and a fight breaks out – despite a valiant effort, they beat him unconscious.
Back at District 21, Halstead and Lindsay wonder about the whereabouts of their leader – Voight’s never late and never sick. They decide to check up on him at his house and instead of finding Voight in bed, they discover traces of blood in the basement and a missing safe. It all points to a kidnapping and when Atwater pulls secret surveillance footage from a hidden camera, their concern is confirmed. The footage returns a one solid I.D. on a known criminal named Marks and quick ping on his cellphone gives them a destination. Before they leave, Olinsky demands the hunt for Voight and his captors stay in-house to minimize any blowback if a direct link exists between the criminals and Voight.
Meanwhile, Voight wakes up cuffed to a radiator with Marks and the other thug demanding the code for his safe. He sustains more beating, but only yields the code when they roll in Olive and start to suffocate her with a plastic bag. Seconds after the thieves open the safe and exit with Voight’s money, Intelligence breaks in and saves Olive from certain death. She confesses to giving up Voight’s address under duress from Marks days earlier after he threatened to kill her baby… and slashed her across the stomach to show his seriousness. Voight takes a look at the scar on her stomach and requests that the hunt for these men remain unofficial.
Olive gives Voight the name of another possible lead, a friend of hers named Josie. Armed with a baseball bat and a wrench, Voight and Olinsky pay a visit to Josie and her boyfriend. She stays mum until Voight breaks a couple of her boyfriend’s fingers – then she gives up the other thug’s name, Gregorie. Unfortunately, the investigation stops there – without seeking outside help, Intelligence has no way to locate Marks and Gregorie.
Lucky for them, Marks turns himself in at the district, strategizing that prison would afford him protection against Voight’s wrath. However, he thought wrong – Voight pulls him out of 21 and drives Marks out to an abandoned industrial park. He puts a gun to Marks’ head with a simple demand: if Marks brings him Gregorie, Voight will save his life. No Gregorie, no other guarantee. A terrified Marks agrees to the deal and tips Intelligence off to a planned meeting with Gregorie at a pier where they plan to board a boat to Canada. They set up Marks with a wire and everyone in Intelligence accompanies him undercover to the pier, except when Gregorie arrives he sniffs out the team and kills Marks with a quick shot to the head. Chaos ensues and Gregorie takes a hostage, but Halstead and Lindsay surprise him from behind and strip him of his weapon.
Voight elects to drag the prisoner away on his own to the industrial park and, like before, places a gun to Gregorie’s head, with every intention of ending the man’s life… but instead, to the shock of Sergeant Platt, he brings Gregorie back to the station to spend his life in prison.
Later, at his house, Voight shares a moment with his son Justin who’s on leave from the Army. He hands Justin an item he recovered from the safe – his wife Camille’s engagement ring. He suggests Justin make an honest woman out of Olive. His mom would have loved her. She loved everyone.

Alderman Ron Becks stands in Voight’s office and pleads with Voight to help find his missing daughter Alison and her friend Hayden. Voight bristles at the politician, but Commander Fischer makes it an order. Intelligence starts with the only clue – Alison and Hayden ordered an Uber last night, and they track the location of the car to a field outside the city. Away from the vehicle, Olinsky and Voight follow a trail of blood to discover the driver beaten within an inch of his life, the victim of two masked men who kidnapped Alison and Hayden. After a series of dead ends – and a tough meeting between Voight and Becks where Voight warns the alderman to divulge any enemies or risk losing his daughter – Intelligence locates a signal for the Uber driver’s stolen phone. The entire team scours the residential street looking for the cell phone, but before they get too far, Hayden bursts through a second-story window. Intelligence scatters – Lindsay protects Hayden while Antonio rushes into the apartment and, in a close-quarters shootout, kills one of the masked kidnappers. The other one floors it in a getaway car – with Alison in tow.
Meanwhile, Antonio’s 14-year-old daughter Eva surprises him by showing up unannounced at the precinct. Although at first annoyed by the fact she rode the train over by herself, he later realizes she misses him and simply wishes to see her father. He assures Eva that no matter what occurs between him and her mom, he will always be there for both her and Diego.
Another surprise visit occurs when a woman named Olive blindsides Voight at District 21 looking for his son Justin. Turns out she and Justin used to date… and now she’s pregnant. Shocked, Voight verifies her story with Justin (who’s set for leave soon and plans to return to Chicago) and invites her to dinner. Over a home-cooked meal, Voight bonds with Olive and even gives her some cash from his secret safe.
At Chicago Med, Hayden details how she gathered the courage to leap through the window in order to save herself from the kidnappers, although she feels guilty for leaving Alison. Unfortunately, the men wore masks throughout her captivity, and she can’t identify any of them. Lindsay and Voight decide to take a photo of the kidnapper Antonio killed to her anyway, just in case – and the move pays off. Alison recognizes the man… because she’s seen him talk to her dad, Gordon. Turns out, 10 years ago, Gordon hired one of the men to rob an employee embezzling money from his company, and the thief got caught and spent those 10 years in prison. The motivation seems clear for the thief-turned-kidnapper – this is all about revenge.
Voight and Lindsay lean hard on Gordon, but it’s his wife and Hayden that trigger his confession and help lead Intelligence to Reid, the kidnapper in question. They track him to an abandoned school and interrupt a deal between him and Becks, seconds away from handing Reid cash to free his daughter. Voight finds Alison in a soundproof music room, tied to a chair, terrified, but alive. Antonio and Lindsay apprehend Reid and then reunite Alison with Alderman Becks.
A stranger kind of reunion occurs during a gun buyback event when Roman recognizes a gun from an unsolved triple homicide in his former district. He and Burgess report back to Platt, but she warns them not to follow up – accepting guns without asking questions lays at the very fabric of the gun buyback program. The officers disobey her and wind up snagging evidence with prints that match a known criminal. Despite the fact their work will likely secure a conviction, Platt chastises them for breaking the rules.
At the end of shift, Roman runs into Antonio and, noticing the detective’s anxiety over the impending divorce, offers him a job with his part-time security company to help ends meet. The gig pays $500 a night and Antonio eventually agrees – and shows up at an extravagant townhouse for his first foray into private security. The rich client explains that Antonio is tasked with watching his back, not asking too many questions and keeping an eye on his attractive wife. This gig’s not looking too bad after all…
