On tonight’s episode of Chicago PD 2o17, the team investigates a string of murders that seem to be the work of a serial killer. Also on Chicago PD season 4, Ruzek goes undercover so Voight welcomes a new member to the team! Find out what happened tonight when Lindsay decides to meet with her biological father on Chicago PD 2017 with my Chicago PD season 4 recap below!
Tonight’s episode of Chicago PD season 4 started off with Lindsay meeting her biological father for the first time. He tells her that he has been out for 10 years, was married and has two sons. She puts two and two together and realizes that he was the one calling and hanging up and sending mysterious flowers.
Meanwhile, the intelligence team is looking into the rape and murder of a young black woman who was left in the middle of the high school football field completely naked. They find out that the victim, Grace, was raising her two younger siblings after their father was murdered. They also find out that Grace was dancing for a guy at a lingerie party and went to talk to the guy that throws the parties. He gives them a name, Ricky Barnes, who isn’t at home, but he was with Grace the night she was killed. They were really close friends and he had gotten into a fight with the guy running the parties because he found out what he was making her do.
Burgess noticed that there are a couple past cases that are very similar. Burgess realizes that one of those cases is of a girl who was murdered and her aunt was at the scene yelling about hoe the police don’t care about their daughters being killed. When they get to her house, she has a folder of other girls who were found dead. After looking into all the cases, they were all strangled, shot and raped after they were dead.
Problem is, there is years in between the murders in 2008 and the recent ones. They are looking for a connection between the old cases and the current ones. Burgess is talking to Platt about Ruzek’s undercover gig because she is worried that he took it to get away from her and while they are talking, Ricky Barnes’ mother walks into in to talk to Lindsay and Voight. Burgess puts cuffs on him and the mother is screaming about how he didn’t do anything and that they lied to her.
Voight and Atwater are talking to Ricky and he is denying having anything to do with Grace’s murder. Meanwhile, the DA is there to charge Ricky with not only Grace’s murder, but the other 12 murders as well. The 10 from 2008 and the three from current cases. They got a hit on his DNA, it was a 98% match. Meanwhile, they find a girl who was raped but managed to get away. She never pressed charges but they got her name from a guy who was a reporter back when the 2008 murders happened, Halstead had her looked up.
Atwater and the guy who is replacing Ruzek for the time being go to pay her a visit and ask her to look at some photos. She can’t pick Ricky out of a photo line up, but Ricky’s father’s picture was in the folder with them and she immediately pick him as the man who attacked her! Lindsay goes to pick up Ricky’s father but he isn’t home and his phone hasn’t moved in 12 hours. He’s running. They head back to the Barnes’ house to get a DNA sample of the father’s. Meanwhile, new guy realizes something doesn’t add up.
Grace was at the Barnes residence the night she was killed, but Ricky claims he didn’t see her. They go outside to look around and find a door to the basement. They go inside and find a wall that moves and behind it there are photos of one of the victims and blood. Meanwhile, Halstead and Lindsay are talking to Ricky about his father being the one who did this and then asks him where his father would hide. Ricky tells them that his father has a key to his uncle’s shop where they always go to drink and hang out.
When the team gets there they find Mr. Barnes burning the pictures of the girls in a barrel. They are able to arrest him without incident. They bring him in and talk to him about his murders, but he is denying that he had anything to do with them and claims that he got the pictures from some guy at a bar. This guy is clearly a sociopath. He then tells them that the guy told him he kill 100 girls and says something about it having to be a new record. Voight stop himself from beating his face in, but he does tell him that he will make sure that the rest of his life is hell.
Halstead ran Lindsay’s father in the system to make sure that he wasn’t popping in for a hand out. Jimmy, her father, Bunny, Halstead and Lindsay go out to dinner. While at dinner, Lindsay finds out that Jimmy held on to all her baby pictures that her mother sent to him over the years. He is also helping Bunny buy her salon that she has always wanted to have. I have a feeling that she is using him for money now that she knows he has it.
