Tonight’s episode of Chicago PD season 4 started off with Voight showing up to Med as Boden gets there and before going in to see Olinsky, Boden tells him this was an arson. Just then, Lexi starts to crash but they are able to get her stats back up by relieving the pressure on her chest.
After investigating this fire more, Severide finds that someone wedged the doors closed to keep people in the building. The team at Intelligence find a fire bug that hasn’t reported to his parole officer for the day. He was apparently arrested for setting fire to his own family. When they get to his house to bring him in on an active warrant, they are greeted with a shotgun blast to the door. Luckily no one was injured. Nathan Dellano is the man they are looking for, but the guy they find is Dellano’s old cellmate, Lenny Cromwell.
Voight asks him where Dellano is, but he knows Voight can’t offer him anything and he refuses to talk. That is until Voight brings up Cromwell’s baby brother who is serving time but in segregation because he is having issue with other inmates. Voight tells Cromwell that the warden is his old deputy chief and he can make one call and have his brother thrown back into Gen-Pop like a dog treat. Cromwell gives him a place he could be and a car he could be driving.
Meanwhile Lindsay finds that Kimball, the owner of the building, took out a bigger policy on the old factory and she and Halstead go to talk to Kimball’s girlfriend. She tells them that Kimball had been threatened about money, but she isn’t sure by who. Meanwhile, Burgess gets a hit on the plate of the car that Dellano is driving and they found it in a neighborhood near Kimball’s house.
When they get there, Dellano starts shooting out of the front entrance of a building there. A bystander gets hit and Lindsay stays with him as Halstead chases after him. Halstead is forced to shoot Dellano because Dellano was going to shoot him if he didn’t. Dellano dies moments later.
While looking through cellphone recordings, they find a new suspect in the video, but they don’t have an ID on him. Meanwhile, Atwater gets a call from one of his snitches, Rashad who gives him some information about Kimball and his issues with a guy named KD who was shaking him down.
At Med, Lexi crashes again and Manning and Halstead go in to work on her. Olinsky sees Dr. Halstead and he has a look on his face. Olinsky goes to talk to him and tells him that he has had to give notifications to a lot of people and he knows it isn’t easy. He adds that he doesn’t have to sugarcoat anything with him. He asks Dr. Halstead if Lexi is going to make it and Halstead tells him no. She is in multi-organ failiure and Olinsky tells Meredith the bad news about their daughter. They go in to see her and say their goodbyes and moments later, she dies.
Voight breaks the news to the team and tells them that they can mourn when the scumbag that is responsible is behind bars. They are all struggling to give updates, but they fight through the tears. They are looking to leads and find a woman who has made suspicious persons calls. She tells them about a guy she has seen shaking up Kimball and she was able to get a license plate off his car. When the run it, the car comes back registered to a Kaid Davis, who is found having dinner with a pretty woman at a restaurant. Ruzek and Atwater bring him in without incident, well other than Ruzek throwing him into a server station when he refused to get up.
Olinsky shows up at Intelligence, he wants to know where they are with the case and refuses to talk about anything but the case. He seems to be the type who needs to keep busy while grieving or it will eat him alive, plus, he wants justice for his daughter. When Davis is brought in, Olinsky starts walking towards the room like he is going to interrogate him, but Voight tells him that he can watch, but Voight’s got this.
Davis denies knowing Kimball, Voight doesn’t like being lied to though so he tells Davis how he thinks it really went down. Voight tells him that if the next thing out of his face is “I don’t know Barry Kimball, we’re gonna go for a ride.” He admits to knowing Kimball, but still denies setting the fire. Olinsky tells Halstead to thank his brother for him because Will was the one who operated on Lexi and did everything they could for her.
Meanwhile, Tamara Collins, one of the victims has woken up and wants to talk. Lindsay and Burgess go to talk to her and she tells them that she saw the man who set the fire. She saw that a man with a dark jacket and hat was holding a paper bag and she saw him drop it and step on it. Her description is a man who was about 5′ 8″, 20-25 years old, wearing a skull ring on his right hand and he had blue eyes. That doesn’t match Davis’ description, but they are going to charge him for the gun.
Everyone heads over to the candle light vigil to see if the arsonist shows up and sure enough, Lindsay spots him in the crowd and they start following him. He has the jacket and hat on and when Voight takes off the guys glove, he is wearing the ring as well. He tells Ruzek and Halstead to put him in the cage.
We end this episode off with them getting an ID on their suspect and his name is Dylan Oates and Voight tells Halstead to get a warrant to search his place. Ruzek finds metal wedges, like the ones used to jam the doors and they bring them to Voight. Voight tells Dylan that he has a really good friend of his who works with him and his daughter was killed in that fire. Voight tells him that he also knew Dylan would show up because this was personal to him, someone hurt him so he wanted to hurt someone else.
Dylan tells Voight that he has the right to remain silent and he doesn’t want to talk to him. Olinsky shows up and Voight locks the door. Olinsky is begging for the keys and for Voight to leave him alone with him, but Voight tells him he can’t do that. Right as Olinsky goes to fight Voight for the keys, Antonio walks in.
