Tracy Spiridakos on how Upton feels about Halstead's departure on P.D.

In a January interview with Variety, the actress opened up about how her P.D. character is coping with the departure of her on-screen partner, Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer), after his character left for Bolivia at the end of Season 10. 

“I think she’s going through the motions and she’s getting up, going to work and getting up, going to work, but there’s a lot of inner turmoil happening,” she told the outlet. “This ultimately will change her in some way, which I’m interested to see how. We’re still in the change. She finds out that he’s extended his stay and has that breakdown moment of having this hope and then all of a sudden, that’s gone. It’s the first time we see her break down since he’s left, since their goodbye. I think there’s gonna be some changes for her over the next little while.”

She continued, “She still considers herself still married. I think her taking [her engagement ring] off, I’m sure there will be a moment that will come. I assume that’s coming. I’m interested to see what that will be like. Is that a goodbye? Is that self preservation? … I’d like to explore what that feels like to have been in such a raw place and she’s not overly open anyway. I feel that she probably will just shut that door for a long time.”

"On a personal level," she added, "I can imagine that there’s gonna be a part of her that shuts down emotionally. As far as a relationship and even getting close to people, I can see her being somebody that will keep people at a distance while she’s going through what she’s going through."
