Chicago P.D. spoilers about the future of Detective Hailey Upton on the show have been revealed by a source very close to the program.
At the end of the show’s last episode, a cartel truck was blown up as Upton and Jay Halstead were trying to take down a suspect. The blast caught the two members of Intelligence, tossing them across the parking lot as the truck went up in flames.
While Chicago P.D. fans watched as Halstead got up, Upton was shown on the ground, motionless. It has led to many questions about what might happen in the next episode.
Does Hailey Upton die? Is Tracy Spiridakos leaving Chicago P.D.? Patrick John Flueger (he plays Officer Adam Ruzek) and LaRoyce Hawkins (Officer Kevin Atwater) provided the answers to those important questions.
Is Tracy Spiridakos leaving Chicago P.D.?
“Who gets rid of Tracy Spiridakos from a show? You just don’t do it. Also, we’d all be very sad on set because she brings the light,” Chicago P.D. star Patrick John Flueger told TV Insider.
“Historically, we’ve seen this unit take so much abuse whether it’s explosions, nine-millimeter bullets to the gut, car crashes, and accidents. And I’m not sure if our audience has figured this out yet, but we’re Intelligence. One of us is worth at least six regular cops,” LaRoyce Hawkins stated.
So, it sounds like Detective Hailey Upton will be fine, even though she is certainly banged up from the explosion.
