Chicago P.D. Season 9 spoilers note episode 1 begins with Jay Halstead and Hailey Upton right after the proposal. Halstead asks Upton if she really means to propose to him — and she says yes.

“I don’t want to be without you,” she tells him. ” … I want to start a new chapter, a better chapter, with you.”

Halstead initially doesn’t answer Upton’s proposal, as he wants to get to the hospital to see how Kim Burgess is doing. Upton then goes to shower, and she considers everything that’s led her to this point so far. She also scrubs her hands as if to clean the blood off.

Finally, by the end of the episode, viewers see Halstead give an answer to the proposal. But he first asks Upton if she’s “sure” it wasn’t just Kim’s injuries that made her want to propose.

“Maybe,” she stated, “but why does that matter? I love you. … Maybe it took Kim getting shot to give me the courage to tell you that.”

Halstead finally says “yes” to the proposal, and he gets down on one knee to do the proposal again.
