Chicago PD Season 9: New Set Of Photos Reveal Characters’ Fate
Kim Burgess Returns On Work
Recently, Assistant Director Tarin Squillante shared a new photo of Marina Squerciati from the set, along with her fellow cast members LaRoyce Hawkins and Amy Morton. Surprisingly, Burgess appears in good shape and doesn’t show any signs of injury from her near-fatal attack. Even the image teased that she has already recovered from the attack and return to the job. Although the picture teased her full physical recovery, her mental recovery would take more time than expected.
In the closing moments of the last season, Burgess had a tough time adopting her daughter Makayla and making her ex-boyfriend and Dt. Adam Ruzek as her custodian. However, it seems like Burgress would spend more time with her daughter while dealing with the emotional trauma. Further, Adam and Burgress’ relationship would take a new turn that might help her deal with her trauma and cope with being a mother.
