Justice is the twenty-first episode of the third season and the 59th overall episode of Chicago P.D.


After a hooded man open fires on their patrol car, Roman is left wounded and Burgess takes off after the shooter and shoots when she finds him turning in her direction with a glimmer of silver in his hand. No gun has been found at the crime scene and the shooter is identified as a 17-year-old African American teenager. Assistant State Attorney Peter Stone, who sent Voight to prison, and his team need to collect enough evidence to indict the teen and clear Burgess, but must tread with caution on this high profile case as tensions run high.

Ruzek: Kim, I know you and I ended pretty rough, but hey, I still care about you, a lot, and if you need anything, at all, I'm here. I got your back

Stone: Come on, we all know what happened that night. The other guy Ellis said was shooting, he's not on any cameras. And the building he said he supposedly ran into? One door, triple locked from the inside. Houdini couldn't have gotten in.

Stone: When you shot Michael Ellis were you thinking with your head or your crotch?

Roman: We're all sleeping in our own beds tonight. Let the city sleep too.

Jefferies: If Michael Ellis is acquitted, you come into work the next morning, start a new case, while I, an elected official, am voted out of office come November.
