Background information and Notes

  • Crossover event that that begins with the Chicago Fire episode "Deathtrap", continues with the Chicago P.D. episode "Emotional Proximity" and concludes with the Chicago Justice episode "Fake".
  • Even though this is not a self standing episode, it is significant enough to be listed. It combines the last 30 minutes of the Chicago Fire episode with the first 20 minutes of the Chicago P.D. episode for a 50 minutes "Special" episode featuring almost the entire cast and the set of Chicago Med. It is also the only occasion where the Chicago Franchise had a four series crossover event.
