The Chicago P.D. Season 9 Episode 6 Scene Fans Couldn't Help But Love

Before the ninth season of "Chicago P.D." started, the long-running series got a new showrunner in Gwen Sigan, who was previously a writer and executive producer on the cop drama that's part of NBC's One Chicago universe (via Deadline). Fans have been hopeful about the change since they have expressed a dislike of previous showrunner Rick Eid's focus on soap opera-style antics at the expense of procedural drama (via Reddit). However, that doesn't mean fans don't value the development of romantic relationships between characters on "Chicago P.D.", and they've been especially looking forward to seeing what happens between the couples known as Upstead (between Hailey Upton and Jay Halstead, played by Tracy Spiridakos and Jesse Lee Soffer) and Burzek (Kim Burgess and Adam Ruzek played by Marina Squerciati and Patrick John Flueger) this season. 

Well, Burzek shippers got a moment in the recent ninth episode of the sixth season that was totally designed to make them happy. It follows some upheaval in Burgess' life — she was kidnapped and shot at the end of last season, and the experience has her working through some major mental trauma at the start of Season 9. By this episode, though, she's the one helping Adam through something — and fans love this intimate look at their bond.

There was a cute Burzek moment at the end of this episode

The episode, called "End of Watch," focused on Ruzek and his development over the course of "Chicago P.D." He gets the chance to work with Sal Ortiz (Ricardo Chivera), a family friend, only for things to go south and drop yet another mentor/father figure from the lofty pedestal in Ruzek's mind. In the show's final scene, he gets drunk, only to have Burgess join him. She gives him an update on the case and comforts him when he makes a comparison between himself and Sal. "You're not him, Adam," she reminds him. "That is not you. And you have me and you have Makayla, and we won't let that be you." There's a lot of touching to go along with these words, and then she says, "Let's go home." She helps him pay and instructs him jokingly on how to walk.

Fans are hoping that this little exchange means the two are unambiguously together at this point. "I will be crying for a while I love them," said @ameliaburgesss on Twitter, alongside a clip of the scene. The user's sentiment was echoed by other fans. @fanCowboys1967 responded, "They are, together, what I love to see in a couple" and others also commented on the healthy dynamic of their relationship. And @MeetUsAtMollys said, "... that ... might've been the cutest #Burzek scene ever?" @upsteadmiracle noted, "i am never getting over this moment," using a crying emoji to convey the emotion.

It's safe to say that Burzek shippers are happy with the way the season is going so far and will be tuning in for future developments in "Chicago P.D."
