Chicago P.D. fans, the stars of the show are just as upset as you are over the shocking season 5 finale.


Fans of NBC’s “Chicago P.D.” were on the case after May 9, Wednesday’s season finale made a bold move on the fate of Alvin Olinsky, the detective played by Elias Koteas for the past five seasons.

Following a stabbing in prison, Olinskly died in the hospital, leaving all of Intelligence shocked. Following the episode, Jesse Lee Soffer, who portrays Jay Halstead in the NBC drama, took to Instagram to share a photo with Koteas, as Pop Culture reported.

Olinsky’s future was already looking precarious in the previous episode. After landing behind bars on an unjust murder charge, his death gave viewers plenty of time to sound off on social media.

Within the first moments of Wednesday night’s episode, the Intelligence Unit finds out that Olinsky has died while in the hospital. So, many fans complained that it was an unceremonious off-screen death, but the bottom line is that he is no longer with us.


Even though it was expected, putting Olinsky’s death at the beginning of the episode is still a bit of a shocker. Perhaps it was a way to raise the stakes of the season five finale.

Koteas has starred as Detective Alvin Olinsky since season one of Chicago P.D. Lovingly referred to as “Al,” he was partners with Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger) and later with Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati).

The team uncovers that Olinsky worked in a federal task force trying to catch De Leon for laundering cartel money by arresting and trying to turn his little brother, but before they were successful De Leon's brother was killed in jail.

Voight suspects the man could have targeted Olinsky in prison for revenge. Beyond his own self-preservation, though, Voight definitely owed Olinsky for knowingly taking the fall there.
