In the Season 10 “Chicago P.D.” episode “Pink Mist,” Hailey Upton stumbles onto evidence that Sean O’Neal is part of an ongoing criminal enterprise that’s trafficking young girls into the sex trade. But since Sean’s the son of CPD chief Patty O’Neal (Michael Gaston), she and Voight have to ensure their evidence is totally bullet-proof before making their move. And the fact that Hailey is dangerously sleep-deprived and distracted during such a critical case has fans anxious about their fave detective.
In Season 10’s “Into the Deep” episode, Hailey reveals she hasn’t spent a night in bed for quite a while. Picking up on this, series fan @haileyhalstead theorized on Twitter, “This just makes me think she hasn’t slept in her own bed since Jay left and has been sleeping on the couch, because the bed feels too empty without him in it.” Meanwhile, on the show’s subreddit, user u/WereMadeOfStars said Upton’s erratic behavior led them to feel that “Hailey is a Zombie. Always awake and in three places at once.” The same “Chicago P.D.” buff expanded on their comment to joke that “Hailey is straight up doing Cold Brew through an IV right now…,” prompting Redditor u/Elsielilyy to agree that caffeine was the only thing keeping Hailey on her feet, saying, “She is literally. Sleep nah iv coffee is good.”
