Recap: Chicago P.D. Season 8
The seventh episode of Chicago P.D. Season 8 titled, “Instinct”, opens up with Atwater and Burgess inside the back of a truck. An undercover operation is underway with Ruzek and Halstead making a deal with two drug peddlers. As the deal goes on, suddenly, a silver pickup comes driving and shoots down the two drug peddlers. The officers run out of the truck to save them from finding out the cops are okay, but the drug peddlers are all finished. The peddlers were well-known meth dealers; thus, Voight orders to find out if they had some rivalry with anyone.
Halstead recovers the phones of peddlers at the precinct. He reads a message the peddler received before dying, which read that if he sells, he will die. On the other side, Ruzek, who has contact with a former meth dealer along with Tommy and Halstead, pays him a visit. They ask him to help them by getting back in the game. The dealers put up demand in front of them. He wants all his records cleared and five thousand dollars. The dealer tells them that if they want to know more, they need Logan he is the new player in the game.
Logan leads the officers to Monohan, who is the prime suspect now as he is the king after the Postera brothers. Halstead gives the team an update. Monohan has a link to 10 different murders before. Halstead orders to keep searching for more. Meanwhile, there is a struggle between Tommy, Ruzek, and Burgress, who are unable to keep up with Tommy.
On the other side, Roman Santiago and his girlfriend are shot by an automatic rifle. Tommy is the suspect. Ruzek, on the other hand, tries to convince Voight that Tommy is a mess and they don’t have a choice right now. Next, we see Ruzek, Tommy, and Logan together. A stalemate takes place, and Ruzek is caught who says that his life was in jeopardy.
We are brought to an interrogation room with Ruzek. Voight reveals that there was a camera outside, and all they see is police brutality. They ask for a meeting with Monohan. Ruzek agrees to it but with Tommy around. Ruzek meets up with Tommy, who is still trying to hold himself off the drugs trying to clean up. They make a simple plan with meeting Monahan. The team is backing up both. They meet Monahan, and when Monahan realizes something is wrong, he pulls out a gun on Tommy. He shoots down Tommy and gets shot down by Ruzek simultaneously.
