Chicago P.D. (2014–…): Season 1, Episode 10 - At Least It's Justice - full transcript

Voight pulls Halstead's badge when Lonnie Rodiger is found dead. After a car accident, Kelly Severide and Peter Mills discover the torso of Dr. Elliot, who has been instrumental in putting away high profile criminals. With Intelligence down one, Sumner is given an opportunity to prove herself. Meanwhile, Lindsay and Severide share a moment.

How's Detective Sumner
fitting into your unit?

I'm not Internal Affairs.

If I find out different,

you'll wish you never
set foot in the 21st.
Ripped By mstoll

Oh this is complete horse...

Gotta get your hips
into it, like this.

This will only take a minute.


You scope out
your next victim yet?

I don't know what
you're talking about.

Your son is a pedophile
and a killer.



You're my partner.
Talk to me.

You don't want to know.

Halstead, my office.

I told you to let
the Rodiger thing go.

HALSTEAD: I think Lonnie
is gonna kill another kid.

VOIGHT: You got eyes on you.

I've warned you all I can.


Did you guys catch
the game last night?

Eighteen seconds into
overtime, Kane scores
with a back-hander.

The guy's on
fire this season.

What's with you two?

VOIGHT: Halstead.


Have a seat.

I'll stand.

All right, after shift
last night, where were you?

Home. Why?

So you're telling
us you didn't go
out at all last night?

I'm telling you that
I watched the Hawks game
and I was in bed by midnight.

This was taken last night
near Broadview and Cicero.

Car's registered
to Lonnie Rodiger.

And that's you,

two cars behind.

Okay, so I happened to be

driving home
behind a pedophile.

Well, your
alleged pedophile

was found dead this morning,

La Follette Park.


Someone tied a cord
around his neck.

So I hope you
have a better alibi

than watching
a hockey game.


Until this is straightened out
you're officially stripped.

So expect a call
from Internal Affairs.

They're gonna want
to interview you
as soon as possible.

What, you mean
an interrogation?

You know how this works, son.


I'm the one who
tried to stop that freak.

Now I'm
the target?
I know.

Take this. It's the
number for Dan Hanes.

He's the best Police Union
rep there is. You call him.

And then you tell me
how you wanna handle this.

This is unbelievable.

Hey, Jin?

I need the Rodiger
homicide file.

As a suspect in his murder,
that's highly unauthorized.

Come on, man!
We're done.

Voight said if I help
you one more time

I'm back to manning
traffic patterns for
Streets and San.

I told you to be
careful, didn't I?

I just got suspended.

You're shocked?

I'm the one who
brought you into this unit.

Tony. This wasn't me.

I gotta clock in.
Go get yourself a lawyer

right now and
keep your mouth shut.

He... He came out of nowhere.

I swear. I didn't see him!

We understand, ma'am. But we
need you to get out of the way

so these men can
do their jobs, okay?


Old lady plows her boat
through an intersection

and she's the only
one without a scratch.

Hey, sit tight, we're
gonna get you out of there.



Hold it.


Hey, sit tight.

Hey! Driver of this car,
he decked my guy!

You ungrateful prick!

You all right?

It wasn't his fault,
why'd he run?

Check the car.


what you got for this?


(SIGHS) Damn.

No wonder he was
in such a hurry.

So when do I get my car back?

Well, it's evidence
in a murder case. So,

it'll be impounded
for a while.

Well, my insurance
isn't gonna cover a loaner.

Will the CPD
provide me with one?

You know what, go ahead, and
pick one out from the lot.

Go, uh, talk to
Sergeant Platt, front desk.

She'll give you
the keys, okay?

Owner of the car is clean.

That car was reported stolen
from a parking garage
a week ago.

Hey. The torso
recovered from the
trunk had an artificial hip.

So I asked Jin to
trace the serial number

and match it to
the patient's name.

Doing it that way is actually
faster than a DNA test.

Only takes me a couple hours
instead of a couple weeks.

It's a good thing you're
back to doing your day job
instead of personal favors.

Keep hitting the bushes.

Hey, so you think
Halstead did it or what?

Lindsay, come on.
It's a question. You never
know around here sometimes.

What's that supposed to mean?


To be honest, I don't
feel any sympathy.

Do the police have
any idea who did it?

We're still trying to
piece that together.

Gail, do you have
any milk for this?

Oh, yeah.
Thank you.



They suspended me.

They think I did it.

So if you did something,

then tell me now

and we'll figure
this out together.

Jay, I have been
fantasizing about
it for years.

But I didn't do it.

After all you've done
for this family...

If you need me to confess,

I will.

Hey! He's dead

because of you!
Too bad.

None of this would've happened
if you had just left us alone.

Lonnie brought this on
himself and you know it.

You're a man short.

Halstead's under
investigation for murder.

You wanna cash in on that?

I deserve to be in

An opportunity is
an opportunity.


I got a match on
the artificial hip.

Dr. Richard Elliot.

The DNA consultant
who testified for
the State's Attorney.

Yeah, I knew him. He helped
put away some major hitters.

Well, his wife filed
a missing persons
report on him yesterday.

Nice work.

Let's take a ride.

He left his office two nights
ago and he never came home.

He called me when
he got on Lakeshore Drive,

but then he never answered
his phone after that.

As a consultant

for the prosecution,
I assume he's gotten
death threats?

He's testified in
hundreds of DNA cases.

I told him I wanted
him to retire,

to go back to teaching but,

he loved his work.

Was he about to testify
in any upcoming trials?

The trial was supposed
to start tomorrow.

This clown. Nicholas Djurovic.

AKA Nick the DJ.

Ma'am, we're
gonna need you to

go downtown with
a patrolman to

deal with the remains.


The remains, huh?

Alvin, I want you
to do a drive-by.

Yeah, just shoot me
the name and we'll suit up.

So, will you let me know
what's going on with Halstead?

I told him not to pursue his

vendetta, maybe
he didn't listen.

So we just
gonna let this kid
twist in the wind?

He created this problem.

He can't figure his
way out of it,
he doesn't belong in

our unit anyways.

All right.

I know this one cop,

he got jammed up on an
aggravated assault charge.

I want your opinion, I'll ask.


Djurovic! This is CPD!

Chicago PD!






Ah! Oh.

ANTONIO: Where you going?
LINDSAY: Back up.

(GRUNTS) Don't.
You can't just...

(CHOKING) You can't just

break in on me. (GASPS)

You wanna run, Nicky?

(GASPS) Help me!


you kind of find yourself
into an erotic asphyxiation
situation here, boss.

I'll take a seat.
Just strike that one.

Okay, boys. That's not fun.

What, do we
pull him up?

ANTONIO: Nah, let
him hang there.

DJUROVIC: Get a warrant.

Do you have an idea, Al?

I think I might.


ANTONIO: What do
you think, Nicky?

Help me up.

Oh, you got no right.

OLINSKY: Put it underneath.

LINDSAY: Yeah. Right there.

ANTONIO: Pretty high up here.

Let 'er rip.


No. No. No.



Well, that didn't work.

I'm gonna sue you,
I'm gonna sue the city,

I'm gonna sue your
mother for having you.

I'm gonna sue your father
for even thinking about do...

Shut up.

You're facing
20 years for murder.

And it all hinged
on Dr. Elliot's


That sounds like motive
to hack him up to me.

Am I shedding tears
for that doctor? Nah.

Do you think I'd be
throwing a going away party,

if I wasn't actually

going away?

So you're saying you're guilty
of the murder they got you on.

Got to admit,

now that the doc's dead

I'm suddenly
feeling not guilty.

If you didn't kill Elliot,
you're the luckiest defendant

in Illinois criminal history.

Recognize him?

That's not the guy who ran.

You sure?

Yeah. Positive.

(SIGHS) Well,

time of death on
the torso was determined
to be 48 hours ago.

The same time Djurovic
was visiting his mother

in a nursing home
in Milwaukee.

They got him signed
in and on camera.

Maybe he farmed out the hit.

VOIGHT: No, it
doesn't make sense.

Now he's the one
criminals farm this
sort of thing out to.

You mind coming to take a
look at a couple a mug shots?


Good to see
you again.
You, too.

I wish it was under
better circumstances.

How's your sister?

She's doing better, thanks.

SUMNER: Recently paroled

ex-cons Dr. Elliot
testified against.

You recognize anybody?

That guy.

That's the guy that we
pulled out of the car.

Tony Jonston. Member
of the Northsiders.

I take it you know 'em.

They're a hardcore
white supremacist gang that
formed in Stateville prison.

Yeah. Jonston did
time for multiple rapes.

He was released on
appeal two weeks ago.

Owns a salvage yard
over on West Lake.

Chicago PD!

VOIGHT: Antonio.
Get the gauge.

SUMNER: Got it.

(SIGHS) That didn't work.

He's gotta gate bolt.

Hey. Come here.

Hey, careful, that's
hydrochloric acid.



So Tony Jonston
didn't accidentally
slip into that tub.

ME found strangulation
marks on his neck,
or what was left of it.

What about his phone?

Two dozen calls to his
lawyer in the last 24 hours.

She's gotta know something.

All right, take Sumner.
Go see Jonston's mouthpiece,

see what you can dig up.

No, wait. Hold on.


you go with her.

What's wrong with
me and Sumner?

Say it.

I think it's better
partners are male-female.

Let's go.

Kiss my ass.

Your attorney-client
privileges are over.

We just found Tony Jonston
in an acid bath.

Why would he want
Dr. Elliot dead?

Well, he believed Elliot
misread the DNA evidence
in favor of the prosecution.

In his mind, he
spent seven years

inside for a crime
he didn't commit.

What do you think?

I led Tony's appeal and

got him an early
release from prison. So,

obviously Dr. Elliot's
research has some holes in it.

Sounds like you get pretty
close to your clients.

I believe in
justice being done.

You spend years helping people
get through a corrupt system,

you begin caring how
it affects their lives.

He called you two
dozen times in 24 hours.

What was so

Tony feared for his life.

Who was he afraid of?

A man by the name
of Jacob Sims.

He's the head of
the Northsiders.

While Tony was in
prison, Sims

took over his salvage
yard, and used it to
traffic in stolen cars.

After his release the two had
a falling out over business.

And what did Jonston think you
could do to protect him?

I was merely
offering legal advice.

Legal advice for
an illegal business?

Come on. Humor me.

Working with a man like Sims?

Cut your losses and you run.

Stalking the Rodigers.
The multiple complaints
on record against you.

I've seen cops
flushed down the
toilet for less than this.

I'm gonna go now.

I'd hoped that
you'd be smarter.

Give IAD a formal statement

and we could all avoid a
very messy hearing tomorrow.

All you have on me is a few
pictures of me driving.


Halstead. You think he did it?

If I knew you
think I'd tell you?


Second reason I called
you in here, you should've
kept better eyes on him.

You're saying
this is my fault?

He's your guy.
You brought him in.

You're judging me? After
everything you've done?

IAD put you in
cuffs a week ago.


Cuffs I got out of.

I told you day one,
you want to bring
this kid in our unit, fine.

But I hold you
for his actions.


That hasn't
changed, Antonio.


Northsiders chop shop,

I made a list of all the
license plates connected
to the cars we found.

Put an alert out just in case.

Half an hour ago Rosemont
police spotted a Mustang

with one of the stolen
plates in the parking
lot of the convention center.

COP: Rosemont PD in position
and ready to move in.

VOIGHT: Rosemont PD
stand down.

Stand down. We will wait for

the suspect to be identified.

I want all these exits covered
and setup for takeaways.

Maintain eyes
on the vehicle.


talk about the worst
place in the world

to take down a
suspect, right?

Olinsky, you ID Sims?

Yeah, on his way out.

And he's got a
brand new shiny AKM.

All right, nobody pops off

until Sims gets the
artillery into his vehicle,

he's out of this parking lot.

Then we'll just box him in.


position to the front.

10-4, moving in.

POLICEMAN: Suspect unarmed,
moving in.

They're jumping the gun!

Rosemont PD,

pull back! Pull back,

Stop! Police.


VOIGHT: Everybody,
watch your aim,

we got civilians all over!




Police! Guns down.

Where is he?

Everybody spread out!

Find this guy!

ATWATER: Everybody
stay where you are.

Calm down.

The Rosemont police
officer who was shot

died on the way
to the hospital.

Wife. Two kids.

We lost that guy.

So we go down
whatever dark hole we
have to, to find him.



You doin' all right?



Is this your first time
firing your weapon?


All right, well, when
you finish up, let's
get out of here, yeah?

I appreciate you meeting me.


What the hell?
Did you do it?

I already told...

Did you do it?

If I was gonna kill
Lonnie Rodiger

I would've done it the
night he raped and he
killed Ben Corson.

I was this close!

Lonnie Rodiger's
homicide file.

No one knows
where you got that.

Did Tony Jonston mention

anything about Jacob Sims?

Nothing specific I can recall.

No stash house or, you know,

you know, hangout?
Someplace off the

radar we might find him?

You have to understand,
I was merely Jonston's lawyer.

We didn't discuss much
else other than his case.

Dad wanted me to
tell you dinner's ready.

Okay, you two start
eating. I'll be right in.

Is everything okay?

Yeah. It's fine, honey.
It's just work.



Look, I don't have to
tell you Sims is unhinged.

He could put two and
two together, figure

out that you
said something.

There's a possibility
he might show up here.


I don't know,

maybe I was
hoping to be one of
those cops that go

their whole careers
without firing a single shot.

Well, you... You wanna
be upstairs, right?

Yeah. Of course.

Well, then, I think it's good
you popped your cherry now.

Because, I promise you, this
is not gonna be the last time

you fire your weapon.

What about you?
What's your trick?

No, I don't really
think about it.

Oh, so you just
bury your feelings
like a typical guy?

No, it's not
intentional or anything.

I just... Really it
doesn't bother me.

You don't ever think about
the suspect you killed?

My uncle used to
tell me this story

about two monks.

They find a wayward maiden
on the riverbank, right?

And one monk says
to the other monk,

this is the younger monk...

This is after they
cross the river...



The upshot is,

don't carry your
problems around with you.



Thanks for the...
Thanks for the beer.

Yeah. I'm around any
time you need to talk.

All right?


I'm so sorry.

No, I'm...

No, hey, it's okay.


Hey. I figured
you might be drinking.

A man shouldn't
be drinking alone.


What are you raised
in a trailer park?

Works the same, right?



You know I had my
piece and badge
taken away from me.

It's the worst
feeling in the world.

Was it the Browning thing?


No one expected us
to deliver him alive,

(SIGHS) so,

we just decided not
to deliver him at all.

Did Voight make you do it?

No one made anyone
do anything that night.

I didn't kill Lonnie.


it's no sweat.

Can I run something by you?

Yeah. Yeah.


Phil Rodiger,

gives his statement

and he says

that his son never
came home that night.

But I know he did.

Where the hell

is my grenade?

Your what?

Oh, it's a paperweight.

A gift that I got when I

graduated the Academy.

If it's not nailed
down around here...

Hey, Platt's taking
donations for the

Rosemont cop that was killed.

Dig deep.

Much appreciated.

Burgess better not cry poor.

Hey, I don't care what
Voight or anyone
else thinks about you.

As long as you honor
that chair you're sitting in,

you'll be right by me.


Hi. I see I'm not the only one
without a social life here.

So, investigators
searching the crime
scene at the salvage yard

found a couple
hundred grams of meth,

a cache of weapons, and this.

That lawyer you
interviewed earlier?

I think you're gonna
want to bring her in.


Turn it off.



I'm assuming the cameraman
isn't your husband.

Of course not.

Who is it?

Want me to bring your
husband down here to watch?

Tony Jonston.

I was forced into it.

Looks like you were
enjoying it to me.

I was working on Jonston's
appeal when I met Jacob Sims.

I needed his
testimony for the case.

Over the last year, he
began stalking me.

Why didn't you reach
out to the police?

You know their reputation.

He threatened me.

He said if I didn't he'd
charge a family tax.

Either I have sex
with him or he kills my
husband and my daughter.

He said he'd send that

video to everyone I know.

So, what do you think?

Maybe Jonston and Sims
had a falling out over her.


VOIGHT: That doesn't explain
why they hacked up Dr. Elliot.

I have a CI who
used to be a Northsider.

Maybe he knows
something about Sims.

You're tight with a
white supremacist?

Like this.


Can you?
Yeah, of course I can.

Thanks. (SIGHS)


I'm not a home-wrecker.

Are you kidding me?

You're like the most honest
cop in this building, huh.

Then we can agree
what happened
never happened?

Hey, Burgess, look...

Please. Let's
keep it as friends.

You're erased from my memory.

All right?

Ruzek was just letting me
know that I was double-parked.

So I'm gonna go move it.

Oh, right. Yeah.

I've been looking for
that. Let me see, um...

Let me see how much I have.

Oh, great. There you go.



In the statement you
gave the detectives,

you said that you didn't
see Lonnie after 10:00 p.m.

That he went for a drive
and he never came back.

I was following
Lonnie that night.

And not long after
these pictures were taken,

I watched him

walk into your house.

Lonnie got tired of hunting,

so he went home.

And according to the
time of death, he was killed

an hour

after I took this photo.

Your son wasn't
killed in La Follette Park,

was he?

You got no idea what
you're talking about.

Phil. Where you going?

You killed him.

He was sick.


All those years

I defended him.

Still smoking those Buglers?

Checked with your
parole officer,

supposedly you're
a model citizen.

Except for that
DUI you got last month.

Bears lost. I went
a little overboard.

So. What do you need?

I know you left the
Northsiders years ago,

but I need the
lowdown on their
shot-caller, Jacob Sims.

Saw it on the news.
He killed a cop.

That was me?
I wouldn't stick around.

Yeah. We got
alerts out at O'Hare,
Midway, Union Station,

the works.

Figured you'd know if the

Northsiders had an
underground railroad.

You know what the
problem is with being legit?

I actually gotta
pay the bills.

There's a reward
for this guy.

You give me something
that checks out I'll
make sure you get it.

The Northsiders are the
only crew in Chicago

that get away with
making meth.

They use a big rig
with false walls that

leaves every day from
Chicago to Indianapolis.

You got a name for
this trucking company?

Nah, they change
it every few months.

But I do remember,
they used the trucking yard
on South Racine.

A little something for now.

Which one?

That's what we
have to figure out.

If Sims is in one
of them, we'll catch
his body heat on this.

All right, hang back
till we need you.

When's the next rig
to Indianapolis?

There's three of 'em.

Dock three,
12, and 16.


Antonio, scan docks

12 and 16. We
got number three.

You should wait
in the office, sir.

ANTONIO: I need an image.



Chicago PD! Jacob Sims?



Drop it!


I got him! Go!


Come on. Let me see.

All right. All right,
the vest stopped it.

You're okay. You're okay.

Take a deep breath.
You're all right.

Stay down.

Stay down.

Stay down!




That was good intel.


You can write the
report on this one.

Cuff him.

Should I include the
part where you

shot an unarmed suspect?

Nah, you can
leave that part out.




So Jacob Sims,

he had some
interesting things to say.

I'm just happy that you
finally caught that animal.

We got your case
files sent over from
the State's Attorney.

Dr. Elliot was the
reason you lost eight
of your last 10 cases.

And you were set to face
him in court next month.

I have multiple
cases next month.

We also spoke with
your law partners.

They said, with your
record of wins versus losses

lately, you're close to
being voted out of the firm.

I think Elliot was about to
cost you your partnership.

Your stake in the firm,

million-dollar town
house in Lincoln Park.

Are you insinuating
that I killed Dr. Elliot?


That little sex tape you made?

I'm thinking you
seduced Sims and Jonston

into doing it for you.

One screws up
disposing the body...

The other kills him
so he can't talk.

Then you sic us on Sims
to clean up your mess.

I am the victim.

Are you going to believe
the accusations of

a racist, sociopathic
ex-con, or me?

Personally? The first one.

Prove it.

We're just gonna kick her?

What do we got?

Evidence of her with
those two suspects.

What? Two ex-cons and
a sex tape? Nah, kick her.

File it with the State's
Attorney, see how far it goes.

I heard they brought
in Phil Rodiger.

I never wanted to
believe my son

was capable of such a thing.


I found some pictures
on his computer,


the same age
as the Corson kid.

I confronted him.

How did you kill Lonnie?

We fought.

I picked up a belt


and I kept choking him.


And then you dropped
his body in the park.


Hey. Good
to have you back.

These are yours.

You all
going for a drink?

No, I got some
place I gotta be.


I never doubted you
for a second, bro.


What's up with you and
Rebel Without a Cause?

Ruzek? (SIGHS)

Nothing. He's engaged.

I've been a cop
a long time, Burgess.

I know body language.
And yours said
you got felt up.

Sergeant, no way.

How old are you?
I'm 26.

I tell ya what, Burgess.


Why don't you have
fun while you're young?

God knows I've tasted
my share of forbidden

district house
fruit over the years.

Hey, Al, you ever get

cold feet before
you got married?

Getting second
thoughts there, kid?

No, I mean maybe, yeah.

Been doing a lot of thinking.

My life just flashed
before my eyes. So...


My daughter is
my greatest blessing.

You know, Wendy
seems like she'd
make a great mom. But...

Yeah. Yeah.

If your marriage
doesn't work out,

so be it, but,

your kids they
last a lifetime.

"Uh, and they knocked
down three blocks...

"...around the house
but no one was hurt. "



What are you doing here?

So that's where it went.

Yeah, I, uh...

I bumped into your
desk and it accidentally
fell into my pocket.

Then by the time I
got to the parking lot,

I didn't have time to...

To come back in so...


Here I am.

This might be one
of the worst excuses

a guy has ever used

to try to get into
my apartment.

And here I was
expecting a thank you.

Thank you.

I have to work so
early in the morning.

Yeah. Yeah. Sure.

I'll see you around.


But, um, I mean you did

come all this way.

And so maybe just one more.

Oh, damn.

Good night.
