Kim Burgess has a huge decision to make Chicago PD This Wednesday’s episode (NBC, 10 / 9c) will see the intelligence officer thinking seriously who will become Makayla’s guardian in case something happens to him.
It’s a difficult choice to make, and one that is exacerbated by the fact that she has such a risky job. As Burgess contemplates a move that could affect Makayla’s future, we’ll also see her try to find work-life balance. At least she has a great support system, which includes her mentor Platt and, yes, even Ruzek.
While the pair haven’t been in order in recent weeks – Burgess has questioned Ruzek’s character, and he hasn’t appreciated that – Marina Squerciati, who plays Burgess, says they still support each other.
“He’s pushing me because he’s mad at me, so there’s an iceberg between us right now,” she told TVLine. “But I like to think that no matter who’s mad at whom in our relationship, there’s this epic foundation that you can’t crack. We are at the end of the game. “(They really need to bring it together, though!)
Expect at least one major ‘Burzek’ moment within the hour. For those hoping to see Burgess and Halstead really interact, however, you’re out of luck. As you will recall, the two characters rarely shared meaningful screen time and appear to be virtual strangers, despite working together for years.
Squerciati notes that there is no bad blood between the two and that their lives are simply focused on different things (like the adoption of Makayla by Burgess and Halstead making a huge leap forward with Upton).
“I think they have a good working relationship,” she explains. “But I also think that, at least right now, Jay and Kim just aren’t a compatible duo… When you split the line of who’s the team [Police] Reform is more Jay, Kevin and Kim, then Upton and Ruzek and Voight are capable of going thugs. So i think [Halstead and Burgess] have this in common.
