Chicago P.D. spoilers about the first new episode of Season 9 have been revealed in the form of synopsis details. This gives us more information about what Intelligence is going to be dealing with during the season premiere.

Recently, we shared some great Chicago P.D. images from the season premiere. It showcases some important moments from the episode and also revealed a few details of what the team would be up against.

Chicago P.D. Season 9, Episode 1 is called Closure and that is a heavy-handed hint that we are going to see a continuation of the story that took place during the two-part Season 8 finale. Officer Kim Burgess found herself in several precarious situations and barely escaped with her life.

It was on those final two episodes of Chicago P.D. Season 8 where Burgess was abducted, shot, and left to die. She was rescued by Halstead and Atwater before the finale came to a close, but she was still in really bad shape. It led to a lot of questions from fans about the future of Burgess on the Chicago P.D. cast.

Chicago P.D. synopsis details for Closure (spoilers)

According to the Closure episode synopsis, Burgess will “continue fighting for her life as the team scrambles to find her kidnapper.”

The villain from last season’s finale is still on the loose and he was also responsible for the death of Deputy Superintendant Samantha Miller’s son. We will see much more of Miller in the season premiere as she begins working hand-in-hand with Intelligence to bring this criminal to justice.

While all of this is going on Ruzek “struggles with the pressure of the situation.”

It’s understandable that Ruzek would feel this way, especially after he told Burgess that he would be the caretaker of her newly adopted daughter if something happened to her.

Another important plot point from the Chicago P.D. season premiere synopsis is that Voight and Upton are going to have to “deal with the aftermath of their deadly decision” from the Season 8 finale.

As a reminder of what happened there, Upton and Voight were able to track down one of the suspects, but Upton ended up shooting that suspect when he wrestled away Voight’s gun. Voight then disposed of the body by burning it and burying it in a very dark ending to that episode.
