The fifth episode of NBC’s police procedural series ‘Chicago P.D.’ season 10 follows Hailey Upton’s attempts to distract herself from the pain caused by her husband Jay Halstead’s absence. She accidentally encounters Abby, a teenage girl involved in a human-trafficking ring. When Abby kills herself fearing someone or something, Hailey grows suspicious of her guardian Sean O’Neal, the son of Patrick O’Neal, Chief at the Bureau of Organized Crime. In the seventh episode of the season, Hailey and Hank Voight bring the rest of the team to investigate Sean. Since Sean is becoming an integral part of season 10, the viewers must be curious about the actor who plays him. Here’s what we can share about the same!
Who is Sean?
Sean, a former drug addict, runs a shelter in the city of Chicago for young people, who are mostly either homeless or banished from their homes. As a former addict, he tries to help young people who deal with the same. Under his care, several teenagers, without anyone to look after them, try to regain their life. When Hailey tries to rescue Abby, the former tells the latter that Sean is concerned about her, only for Abby to kill herself. Hailey realizes that mentioning Sean must have made Abby kill herself, which leads her to investigate several cases of missing girls.
It doesn’t take long for Hailey to realize Sean can be behind the group of girls’ disappearance. Hailey details her findings to Voight, who gives her permission to move forward with the case. In the seventh episode of season 10, Hailey witnesses Sean receiving possibly a stack of cash from a known human trafficker. When the latter dies, Hailey meets Sean and talks about the criminal, only for Sean to call the dead criminal using his burner phone, revealing his involvement in the human-trafficking cases Hailey has been investigating.
