‘Chicago PD’ Episode Guide (Feb. 22): Olinsky Goes Undercover as a Hitman

“Favor, Affection, Malice or Ill-Will” (02/22/17) – When Lindsay (Sophia Bush) is tipped off about a grieving father looking to avenge his daughter’s death, Olinsky (Elias Koteas) goes undercover as a hitman-for-hire.

With Gang Intelligence lacking enough evidence to arrest the original gangbanger in question, the team works to reinvestigate the case. Meanwhile, Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger) comes back after finishing his undercover assignment only to have Voight (Jason Beghe) knock him down to patrol duty.

Guest starring in this episode are Carl Weathers, Yuri Sardarov and Nick Wechsler.

From multiple Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf and the team behind the hit series “Chicago Fire,” ‘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.

Hand-picked as the head of the Unit is Voight, who has assembled a team of diverse detectives who share his passion, and commitment to keep the city safe. They include: Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) who is more level-headed and “by the book” than his counterpart; Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer), a brash young detective who previously saw active military duty in the Middle East; Halstead’s partner Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush), a former “bad girl” who turned her life around with Voight’s help; Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas), an experienced undercover detective and confidante for Voight; and Adam Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger), a quick-witted cadet plucked from the police academy as Olinsky’s partner.

The Unit includes a new member in the form of Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins), a charismatic patrolman who recently was brought upstairs. Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Sean Roman (Brian Geraghty) assist with the unit but on a daily basis they work the streets as uniform patrol officers often working with intelligence whenever necessary. Desk Sgt. Trudy Platt (Amy Morton) runs a tight precinct with tough love although she lets her softer more vulnerable side shine through from time to time.

In addition to Wolf, executive producers include Matt Olmstead (“Chicago Fire,” “Breakout Kings,” “Prison Break”), Peter Jankowski (“Law & Order” branded series, “Chicago Fire,”), Michael Brandt and Derek Haas (“Chicago Fire,” “3:10 to Yuma”), Danielle Gelber (“Chicago Fire”), Mark Tinker (“NYPD Blue”) and Arthur Forney (“Law& Order: SVU,” “Chicago Fire).

“Chicago P.D.” is produced by Wolf Films in association with Universal Television.
