The tension is building as Chicago P.D. races toward its season finale. Last night’s episode (9.17, “Adrift”) was a rough one for Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger); they are both still reeling from Makayla’s abduction, and it’s anyone’s guess what will happen with this fan-favorite couple. Meanwhile, Voight (Jason Beghe) took a break from the Escano investigation to support Ruzek with a drug case. With only five episodes to go, you can be sure that Voight and Anna (Carmela Zumbado) will be back in the bakery soon. Voight has a lot of confidence in his informant, but if she’s found out, Escano will surely kill her.
SciFi Vision caught up with Jason Beghe last week at NBC’s One Chicago press day. We asked him about Voight’s obvious soft spot for Anna and what it is that draws him to her.
“I think that they're both lonely,” Beghe observed, “and so that's one thing. She has Rafa, her son, but that's about it. She's lost all her family, like Voight, and she is very, very single minded and focused and willing to do whatever at her own peril. She's an emotionally invested person, for sure; so is Voight.”
Beghe shared a few more thoughts about the professional partnership before offering a hint about Voight’s investment in the relationship. Watch the interview below and catch Chicago P.D. Wednesdays at 10/9c on NBC.
