The Chicago P.D. Season 11 finale can't come soon enough. After Season 11, Episode 12, "Inventory," Sgt. Hank Voight's (Jason Beghe) fate is unclear, and some fans are fearing the worst for the Intelligence Unit's beloved leader.

What happened to Voight on the latest Chicago P.D.?

For weeks, the Unit has been hunting a serial killer, and in "Inventory," Det. Hailey Upton (Tracy Spiridakos) got a break in the case: The murdererer is a man named Frank Matson (Dennis Flanagan), who works with the police department, not as a cop, but as their station's lock up time keeper. He actually made his first appearance in the season premiere. Hiding in plain sight? And just like with arrestees, Matson gives his victims one phone call.

But while Upton and the squad were searching for Matson at work and at home, Matson was drugging Voight's drink at the bar and kidnapping him. Now, it's a race against time to find Voight before Matson tortures him to death.

So, was Voight killed?

The episode was directed Chicago P.D. alum Jesse Lee Soffer, who played Det. Jay Halstead for 10 seasons before exiting the series in 2022. And while fans are happy to congratulate him on a fantastic episode... they're also very, very worried about Voight. On the One Chicago Instagram post celebrating Soffer's direction, one top comment says, "WHAT JUST HAPPENED TO VOIGHT THO??!" and another adds, "Voight better be okay or I’m never watching this show again is all I’ll say."

"Super worried about Voight," wrote a concerned viewer. And just after the episode aired, another commented, "And y’all expect me to sleep tonight with Hank missing. 🥺🥺" Can any of us sleep with Hank missing?

To ease the mind's of worried fans, we can say that Voight was still alive at the end of "Inventory". However, we'll have to tune-in to the May 22 finale to learn his ultimate fate.

"One of [Voight's] strengths is that more than the average humanoid, he is present, He's in this moment. You'll see that even in the beginning when he's drugged out of his mind, he's struggling to become present," Beghe told NBC Insider.

So the veteran officer won't be spiraling or panicking; next episode, he's going to fight back! And in a way, explains Beghe, this is what Voight wanted all along: A face-to-face with the serial killer. "He was single-mindedly looking for this guy. He's got him now. Most of what he's doing is figuring out how to get out of it."

Can't wait to see how he pulls it off. The last episode of the season airs next week on Wednesday, May 22 at 10/9c with the finale "More" (Season 11, Episode 13).
