Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago P.D. have all lost characters in the early Fall 2022 episodes, presenting some pretty shocking storylines for the fans.

On Wednesday night, Detective Jay Halstead turned in his badge on Chicago P.D., bringing to an end the time that actor Jesse Lee Soffer has starred on the show.

The storyline was left wide open, though, keeping the possibility available that Halstead could pop up in another episode later this season or that the character could return during a future season.

Returning to One Chicago is something that several characters have done before, including Jessy Schram coming back as Dr. Hannah Asher when the Chicago Med cast lost actress Kristen Hager (she played Dr. Stephanie Hammer.)

Losing Halstead has been a tough event for Chicago P.D. fans, as it adds another character to the growing list that Intelligence has lost over the years.

At the same time, there are a lot of stories that can now evolve in Chicago P.D. Season 10 as the writers bring in some fresh faces and the team looks to someone else for leadership.

Who left Chicago Med in Fall 2022?

After the season premiere, it was officially announced that the Chicago Med cast had lost two people. Within the show, Sarah Rafferty is done playing Dr. Pamela Blake, and Guy Lockard is out as Dr. Dylan Scott.

We will likely hear more about Dr. Blake’s recovery from surgery taking place off screen, but it’s possible that we don’t hear anything else from Dr. Scott as he leaves Chicago.

Both characters are alive, though, so the door is open for returns.

Chicago Fire character death in Fall 2022

A shocking event took place on Wednesday night when Chicago Fire killed off a main character.

Looking back, there was definitely a lot of foreshadowing that Jimmy Nicholas was playing Chief Hawkins on Chicago Fire for the last time, and there is no coming back from how the character left the show.

Upcoming episodes will likely focus on how Violet Mikami (played by Hanako Greensmith) deals with the death of the man she was in love with. It’s possible that her character doesn’t appear for a while now, as well.

The episodes where these primary characters last appeared in Fall 2022 were Chicago Med Season 8, Episode 1, Chicago Fire Season 11, Episode 3, and Chicago P.D. Season 10, Episode 3. Those installments are all available for streaming on Peacock for any One Chicago fans who missed them or simply want to go back and re-watch the big nights.

Chicago Med airs at 8/7c, Chicago Fire airs at 9/8c, and Chicago P.D. airs at 10/9c Wednesdays on NBC.

Missed Halstead before he left! Just wanted to shout to Casting & whoever was involved in securing Levy Aguilar as Torres. This show still carries through with outstanding actors and a ton of credit to the writers. PD proves that it’s not just another cop show. Far from it. From the 1st episode on, there is no bkground music combined with the names & faces of the actors doing whatever possible to not look phony. I haven’t seen another show follow this intro sty!e which btw continues without commercials during first scenes. I’ve been studying fi!m production to make documentaries. I hope to meet like-minded film crew and writers with the same integrity never settling for less than better. Perhaps Intelligence will get involved with a Cartel who is mainlining their guys to travel north to Santa Fe… You guys are looking damn cold.. Apologies for this long msg. Best-
