The Chicago P.D. Intelligence runs into some complications at a church in the Jan. 18 episode of Chicago P.D. titled, “Sanctuary.”
In the episode, Atwater and Rixton run into some trouble when they follow the primary suspects in a murder to a church, where the priest and parishioners prevent the police from following the suspects inside.
Also, the newest member of Intelligence, Rixton (filling in for Ruzek) gets caught in a lie with Voight, which sounds anything but reassuring for the guy.
Here’s the synopsis for “Sanctuary” (catch the promotional photos in the gallery above):
AN INVESTIGATION IS BLOCKED BY A CHURCH OFFERING SANCTUARY TO THE PRIMARY SUSPECTS. After a female jogger is brutally murdered in the park, Rixton (guest star Nick Wechsler) and Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins) arrive to see two suspects fleeing the scene.

While investigating the case, Rixton gets caught in a lie with Voight (Jason Beghe). Also starring Jesse Lee Soffer, Sophia Bush, Patrick John Flueger, Elias Koteas, Marina Squerciati and Amy Morton.
