Chicago P.D.'s Memory Episode Has Fans All Saying The Same Thing

Contains spoilers for "Chicago P.D." Season 9 episode 20, "Memory"

The "One Chicago" franchise shows are always ready to add neat little curveballs to their plots, be they guest star stints from other shows in the franchise, or simply plotlines that go way harder than you'd assume. Being a police procedural, "Chicago P.D." has plenty of opportunities for the latter, and the show uses them to maximum effect in the Season 9 Episode 20, "Memory." 

"Memory" involves a particularly strange case that involves a double homicide that comes with plenty of strange details, up to and very much including a bathtub filled with bleach. What's more, the crime seems to tie into an identical cold case from many years ago, the only likely suspect is a piece of work, and acquiring information from the son of the first crime's victims turns out to be ... problematic. 

In other words, Hailey Upton (Tracy Spiridakos) and Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) have their work cut out for them — and fans are all saying the same thing about their investigation.

Fans think Memory is one of the creepiest Chicago P.D. episodes in recent memory

Fans discussing the episode on Reddit enjoyed watching "Memory," but were quick to note that the unnerving episode goes to some surprisingly grim places. "This was a seriously dark episode. Definitely one of the creepiest," u/theghostwhorocks posted. "I liked this episode. It had a Criminal Minds feel to it, which I really liked," u/Escoutas wrote. Others, like u/raiderkelley and u/magneticfish heartfeltly agreed on the creepiness factor.

It wasn't just one Reddit thread, either. Fans on Twitter have also been announcing their appreciation for "Memory" and its dark plot. "This Chicago pd episode is giving me mayor criminal minds vibes ... It's got the creepy factor and I love it!!" @abbiefairclough1 wrote, seconding the "Criminal Minds" comparison from Reddit. Elsewhere, user @ChicagoCFPD highlighted the episode's unnerving use of a lullaby tune. "Bleach bath AND lullaby together as keyword are just creepy," they wrote.

Time will tell whether "Memory" will be able to join the pantheon of best "Chicago P.D." episodes. However, it's already pretty clear that it'll definitely hold its own on any list of creepiest "One Chicago" episodes.
