Sean and his dad were making every effort to forget what had happened. The chief made no effort to examine the evidence. The only path forward for him was denial since he was so terrified that his son would turn out to be a monster. Voight paid the chief’s house a visit after Sean was let out. He turned over the file containing all the information they had gathered against Sean. He insisted that the chief read it at the very least. Voight left the chief drinking a scotch while he and his squad followed a lead because he wanted the chief to understand that Sean was a monster. They tracked the van to several locations using street cameras. Upton is fortunate that Voight arrived in time to assist her after taking a dangerous gamble. They discovered the girls in the abandoned truck together. The girls were saved after being abandoned to perish, giving the team actual proof against Sean.

The following day, Voight and Upton went to Patrick’s house to capture Sean, but when they arrived, they found Patrick’s dead body on top of Sean, who was very close to passing out. It is clear that Patrick read the case file in accordance with Hank’s instructions because it is strewn all over the surface of his table. Sean’s father had fired a gun at him. When Chief O’Neal realized he had been mistaken in thinking he had killed his son, he also committed suicide. When Voight discovered Sean, he was still alive. Voight made an ambulance request. Sean received first assistance from him as well, which helped keep him alive until the ambulance arrived. Thus, Sean’s life was spared by him and Upton. Additionally, Upton and Voight were only aware of one another’s hidden desire to let him die.

Is Michael Gaston Leaving Chicago PD?

Patrick has spent his entire life attempting to protect Sean but has never been successful. Patrick’s knowledge that his son had endangered and ruined the lives of several young women must have led him to feel that the same things happened to him as a result of his own shortcomings as a parent. It is likely that he committed suicide as a result of the guilt associated with holding such a mindset. In the event that Sean is taken into custody, Patrick will have no one else to live for. It’s possible that he doesn’t want to live and lead the force while having the stigma of being the parent of a child.

The fact that Chief Patrick O’Neal passes away in the ninth episode of the tenth season brings an end to the plot arc of Michael Gaston‘s role, indicating that the actor has ostensibly left the show. NBC had previously disclosed that the storyline involving Patrick and Sean will come to a close with the ninth episode of the show, despite the fact that there is not yet any official confirmation regarding the same. We are under the impression that this will be the final time we see Gaston on the program because it is highly unlikely that Patrick will come up in any flashbacks or dream sequences. It is likely that the new Chief of Police will be introduced in one of the next episodes of the tenth season. This character is likely to play an important part in the storyline that unfolds during the remainder of the season.
