Chicago P.D.: Jesse Lee Soffer comments on Halstead, Lindsay relationship | kinenbicounter.info
Chicago P.D.'s Halstead and Lindsay are about to face their first major It's more that she stirs up feelings and issues that he hasn't dealt with from when they were together. It's not even so much about the past relationship. Detective Jay Halstead is a member of Sergeant Hank Voight's Intelligence Unit Erin Lindsay, whom he also was in a romantic relationship until their breakup he hasn't, and he needs time to sort his problems out, like his marriage to Abby. As the two continue to navigate the relationship waters of dating and living together, That moment Jay and Erin made out as a cover on a stakeout. Halstead and Lindsay have – from the start – been a dynamic partnership.
This was an event that shook the show to its core, especially Erin. Jay was there to be the comfort she needed during this horrific time. That moment Erin was there for Jay after he lost a friend. One of the beautiful things about their relationship is how they are able to lean on each other in times of need. This case — with losing a former military friend — shook him the entire episode. And Erin was by his side to help ease the pain in any way she could. When Jay had a bounty of his head, he asked Erin if he could crash with her after his apartment had been broken into.
She obliged but joked about Jay wanting to play Scrabble aka have sex with her. Scrabble will forever hold a new meaning for me. That moment Erin volunteered to tase Jay. The fun, flirtatious way that Erin and Jay are at work is one of my favorite things. That moment Jay brought his girl some fast food a combo. Get yourself a man who will bring you your favorite fast food a combo no doubt!
The domesticity was almost too much to bear.

That moment they first lingered on each other. OTPs are made of longing glances, sexual tension, and angst. This was the first moment. The one thing that was able to shake Erin from her spiral was hearing the news that Jay had been kidnapped. She immediately leaped into action and put herself in danger in order to save Jay. The man was going to hurt her. Jay was not going to let that happen.
That moment Jay and Erin went undercover at a sex club. Can we just acknowledge how attractive these two are as individuals and as a couple? This undercover mission allowed for a lot of innuendo and subtle flirting that boded us over until they officially hooked up several episodes later. That moment Jay and Erin got back together. Intelligence is then sent a CD containing a clip of Jay being tortured.
Voight is upset to see this and a subsequent phone call sees the men ask for all of CPD's CI files in exchange for Jay's life. Ruzek immediately accepts the demands when the phone call ends and says it isn't a matter of debate, but Antonio tells him that most of the CI's are his and that he can't have their blood on his hands. Ruzek accuses him of wanting Jay dead instead but Alvin breaks up the fight.
The team make fake files but the trade-off has to be by a female officer. Alvin calls Erin and tells her about it and she wants to do it. Erin comes to the station and demands she be the one who goes, but Voight refuses to let her but she's insistent so she ends up going.
She exchanges the files but first demands to see Jay, who has not been brought to the trade-off, so Erin goes with them to see him while the team watches. She goes to the house and Jay is brought in bruised and very injured. She stays with him but the fake CI files get caught and the men are about to kill Erin and Jay but they fight back and the leader ends up getting killed by Erin. Erin returns to Intelligence afterwards.
Later in the season, Lindsay and Halstead get back together. Voight, previously against relationships in Intelligence, states that he no longer cares for that policy, mainly concerned with Lindsay's well being, which he entrusts Halstead with.
Season 4 In season 4, Halstead tells Lindsay "Cases come and go, bosses come and go, jobs come and go, but I don't want you to come and go" and asks her to move in with him. They then decide to move into the apartment Lindsay already owns.
Later once Lindsay and Halstead started living together they admit their love for one another. Dawson tells him that knowing the cop Jay has became made the decision easier to leave the unit. He said that he wasn't proud of the person he was in the past, and that even though Erin may think that he's moved on, he hasn't, and he needs time to sort his problems out, like his marriage to Abby.
They both avoided each other in later episodes until Jay told her they shouldn't have to act like that around each other. They remained on friendly terms later, and Jay joked about a married couple that couldn't live together without fighting and so had to live across each other and how their marriage was perfect because of it, and suggested the idea to Erin, who laughed it off.
In Army of OneBunny got back in touch with Erin. Jay told her he was suspicious of Bunny, and Erin said she would sort it out herself. However, during a case, Erin lashed out at an offender when she threatened him with a gun.
Jay wasn't happy with the arrangement, and Olinsky told him Voight should've done it long ago. Jay then asked Voigjt how long the arrangement was going to last, and Voight told him not to ask him that again if he wanted to keep his job. Later on, Erin was called to a review board. Will told him they weren't even together, and Will said now was the only time he felt it was right because she was in trouble and he should be there for her.
Will gave him the ring. He couldn't propose when he met her, and planned on doing it at Molly's that night. However, Erin had taken the job in New York and didn't go. Jay called her, and she was on her way out - she held onto his Army Tag and rejected the call, implying she wouldn't meet him before she left. Season 5 In ReformJay has a hard time moving on with the fact that Erin has left. He is told by Voight to let it go and move on, because Erin has. During a case later on, Jay shoots a man and then finds a young girl bleeding out.
They take her to Med and Will tells them there is a chance she'll make it. However, investigation then showed that the bullet Jay shot the man with went clean through him and a door and then hit the young girl. Jay is devastated to hear this, and insists he hit a man.
This is proven difficult to prove, and Jay is branded a "racist" as a video of him punching a black man goes viral.

The alderman behind it admits he doesn't know the true story, but doesn't care. This is until they finally track down the offender. Voight spends a lot of time trying to convince Jay not to worry and to go home, which he refuses to do.
Jay then finds out that the young girl has died, and feels extremely guilty. Voight then takes part in a side deal with the Alderman to make sure Jay's bad image is erased, which no one else knows about. Jay then went to see the young girl's mother later that night with a necklace the girl left behind.
Later on in Season 5, Jay was shown having nightmares and impulsivity issues, which angered his partner, Hailey. However, things worsened when Jay went undercover and began dating the sister, Camila, of the man Intelligence was trying to capture. He kept using his alias until a woman died outside a nightclub that he and Camila were at. He lied and told Voight that he was just undercover trying to get more intel, but hadn't officially put it in the books.
Hailey wasn't convinced but went along.

This was until plans to arrest Camila came about. Convinced that she was innocent, Jay called her and told her to leave town, even telling her he would go with her. However, Hailey and Voight found him and convinced him to help bring her in. She was partially innocent, but her relationship with Jay would've ruined his career. Hailey convinced her to not say anything about their relationship in exchange for her freedom. Voight then told Jay he had to go therapy sessions and was on desk-duty until further notice.

He went back into the field in Captive when Kevin was kidnapped. In Chicago Fire Halstead worked undercover in a sting to take down a ruthless landlord who threatened to burn down Molly's and Game Day.
This resulted in his being shot in the shoulder, but a successful take-down. Background and Characterization Edit Halstead is characterized as a highly capable detective and focused and dependable team player with an occasional temper and brash streak.
In season 1, then a fairly recent transfer, he was the only member who dares to repeatedly question Voight and stop him during one of his "rampages".
He has a hard time drawing the line between his personal and professional lives whenever someone he cares about is involved in the case, as shown with the Lonnie Rodiger murder in At Least It's Justice and numerous times with his brother Will.
When Will is first introduced in season 2, Lindsay comments to Jay that she didn't know he had a brother. Besides Mouse, Will and Olinsky, only Lindsay knows anything more about Halstead's military background, having been the one who accompanied him the military funeral of a friend in the episode Forty-Caliber Bread Crumb.
Halstead appears to have issues with abandonment, noticeably shown with the departures of Erin, Antonio, and especially Mouse. This may stem from his belief that his brother Will abandoned him when their mother was dying and Jay came back from his deployment, saying that he was "out partying" instead of being there for Jay. Jay was very hurt by Will's actions and still harbored some resentment towards him as of "Say Her Real Name". Halstead is a veteran, having served in Afghanistan with the 75th Ranger Regiment.
Mouse mentioned that they were deployed there inindicating that Halstead only joined the police force after that. He and Mouse were deployed to the notoriously dangerous Korangal Valley; both his reaction to his physical torture and comments made by his kidnappers in Life Is Fluid that Halstead was tortured at some point during his service.
Mouse recieved a medical discharge and reveals in What Puts You On That Ledge that the incident happened when he and Jay were at the head of a convoy. It is unknown what, exactly, happened, but Mouse's comments imply that Jay was also released on medical discharge at the same time. His military service, although infrequently referred to, has undoubtedly had a major impact on him.
It has been mentioned that he had difficulty readjusting to civilian life when he first came home and likely suffered from PTSD, based on Mouse's vague allusions to specific incidents in their deployment and Will's brief statement about Mouse being the one who "dragged Jay home Halstead joins the Chicago Police Department after leaving the military and returning home to Chicago for good; it is implied that joining the police force was what helped him to work through his psychological trauma.
A deleted scene in Little Bit Of Light reveals that Jay has been attending a weekly support group for veterans and trying to get help for his issues. It is revealed in season 5 that despite being mostly functional he still exhibits symptoms of PTSD, specifically insomnia and nightmares. He is extremely recitent regarding his military past, even with Erin: In season 5 he is forced to see a therapist by Voight after getting romantically involved in his target while undercover.
He later admits to Upton that he found therapy helpful, though it is not until the season 6 episode Trigger that Halstead speaks at length about how his time overseas has affected him, telling Upton that he had learned to deal with his PTSD and not let the past trauma define him.
The Halsteads are from Chicago. They are from a blue-collar Irish Catholic background and both brothers attended Catholic school.
