‘Chicago PD’ Episode Guide (Jan. 17): Atwater Goes Missing

“Captive” (01/17/18) – When Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins) disappears at the house of a convicted felon, the evidence doesn’t look promising – with his belongings and his blood left behind. Intelligence rallies to rescue him before it’s too late.

And Atwater struggles for survival faced with not only his captor but also a difficult connection to his past.

Guest starring in this episode are Mekhi Phifer, Jesse Garcia and Joshua Torrez.

“Chicago P.D.” is a riveting police drama about the men and women of the Chicago Police Department’s elite Intelligence Unit, combatting the city’s most heinous offenses – organized crime, drug trafficking, high-profile murders and beyond.

Det. Sgt. Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) and his intelligence team have always considered rules to be guidelines more than actual laws. Their goal has always been to protect their great city and they have used unique ways to help bring criminals to justice. Now it’s a new day and age in Chicago. Police are under siege and under a microscope – everyone from the federal government to politicians and citizens in their own city are watching. The intelligence team will feel the pressure, and their form of justice will be questioned and challenged.

Today, Chicago is a unique place to be part of the police department. Political and social agendas play key roles in how police function. Racial tensions, agendas of individual politicians, new federal regulations and other issues will be addressed this season. With police reform in full swing, the team is going to be forced to find new ways to achieve their ultimate goal: Justice.
