- Chicago P.D. and Chicago Fire aired a crossover event titled "Burden of Truth."
- Brian Garaghty came back as a guest star to play Sean Roman.
- Fans were shocked by the way Roman's storyline ended up.
Chicago P.D. fans knew that Sean Roman's return would be dramatic—but no one expected it to end with murder.
The highly-anticipated, two-hour crossover event with Chicago Fire saw the former officer come back to town in search of his younger sister Sarah, who'd gone missing amid a series of teen drug overdoses. Roman eventually tracked her down with the help of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) and Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati), but he was too late. Sarah had been killed by her drug-dealer boyfriend, Logan, and was found buried in the snow.

After discovering his younger sister's frozen body, Roman tracked down the man responsible for her death and shocked everyone when he took justice into his own hands.
Although Burgess knew what Roman did was wrong, she felt conflicted because of their complicated history. Ultimately, she chose to arrest him for killing Logan—but Sergeant Voight (Jason Beghe) intervened at the last minute.
"Logan Peters deserved what he got," Voight said before letting Roman go free. "As for the person responsible, we’re going to continue our investigation, but it’s no longer a top priority."
Some fans couldn't believe that Roman got away with killing someone.
But others were glad he didn't end up in jail for avenging his sister's death.
Probably the last time we see Roman and he did not deserve that but atleast he’s not going to jail #ChicagoPD— Rachel (@dorkgirl009) February 27, 2020
After the episode aired, Brian Geraghty weighed in on his character's actions and tried to offer some clarity about what happened.
"I think it’s like any good movie: There’s a vigilante. They’re actually doing, by the law, the wrong thing, but I think you’re kind of rooting for them," Brian told TV Line. "I hope that the audience, in that case, would realize that [Roman killed Logan] out of love."
The actor admitted it was a "risky" ending—but it wouldn't be Chicago P.D. any other way!
