This week’s episode tackled more adversity and more drama but doesn’t shy away from the business at hand. This is your full recap.
Severide arrives at the police department for questioning about the mysterious disappearance of Keeler, only Det. Lindsay informs him that she won’t be in the room. Seconds later, he sits down with Sgt. Voight and tensions rise fast between the two of them. Voight makes his prediction clear that Severide’s he’s a suspect. Otis was brought in next and he told them he admited to driving by Keeler’s place the night he disappeared and to sitting by the lake afterwards. In short, his alibi leaves Lindsay less than enthusiastic. Voight insists she investigate him.
Back at Firehouse 51, Herrmann floats out the perfect surprise anniversary gift for his wife which was a vasectomy for him. Best part? He’s holding it at Molly’s on Saturday which is news to Dawson, who already booked Molly’s for a tapas night with her family. Herrmann suggests they combine the two parties, an idea Dawson shoots down with a vengeance. Although Herrmann’s persistence breaks her, she dreads the upcoming party combo.
The Jones transition continues to be a work in progress. Misinterpreting a recommendation from Mills, she attempts to lighten the mood by buying a custom-made cake in honor of Herrmann’s pending procedure. Reactions vary and Jones soon learns someone issued a formal complaint. Boden writes her up and this time Mills doles out clear advice saying that she should apologize and swear you’ll never do it again. After playing a key, fearless role in a rescue, Jones approaches Boden and apologizes.
Unfortunately for her, that gesture may not satisfy the one person she still needs to impress which include her father. He pulls in Boden and Casey for a meeting to explain his plans to send Rebecca to Headquarters in three weeks. In other words, he needs Boden and Casey to disqualify her from 51. Chief Jones doesn’t want his daughter to become a firefighter. Talk about downright terrible espesially the face she was hanging on for dear life in a call that suspended her on a rope saving someone. Death defying if I can say that.
Later, Dawson straps on some courage and demands another opportunity to pass the firefighter physical. Thankfully with some strings pulled by Casey she is able to join the next class. She was oblivious to the idea that she did it behind her back but hey it was for love…I think. That or something went right for once.
Severide’s father, Benny, joins his son and Shay for dinner and the conversation takes on a new tone once Severide mentions Otis’ interview with CPD. Benny’s eyes grow distant and Severide reads it loud and clear… but says nothing. The silence does the talking for them: Benny took care of Keeler. No doubt remains about the culprit when Benny meets up with Voight in private to confess. Voight instructs him to go home to Winnetka. And stay out of Chicago for a while.
That night at Molly’s, Herrmann surprises his wife with the big announcement, and to the shock of almost everyone in attendance, she loves it and makes her laugh. Which I will never understand. Otis talks with Severide to let him know CPD cleared his alibi. Otis worries about Keeler’s true location, but Severide cuts him off saying that he is never coming back (cue dramatic music). Well at this point the Keller saga continues but to what end? In the mean time here’s a sneak peak of next week’s all new episode.

Why Is Taylor Kinney Leaving ‘Chicago Fire’?
Shocking news Firehouse 51—Taylor Kinney is exiting Chicago Fire.
Deadline reported the news on Friday, Jan. 20, revealing that the actor, who anchors the show as Kelly Severide, will be taking a break from the series.
Kinney has been a staple on the Dick Wolf drama since its inception in 2012 and is a huge reason why the series has retained such a dedicated viewership.
While an official reason was not provided, and a rep for the show did not offer a comment, sources close to production told the outlet that Kinney is taking a “leave of absence” to deal with a personal matter. No word on what the situation is.
The cast and crew were reportedly informed of the leave right before the news broke, with the writer’s room likely having to rewrite scripts to accommodate the change.
It’s unclear whether this will be a permanent leave, nor is there any info about how he will be written out for now.
Kinney has not addressed the news himself as of writing.
This is the latest shocking exit in the #OneChicago world as Jesse Lee Soffer, who plays Jay Halstead on Chicago PD, exited earlier this season, while Brian Tee hung up his coat earlier this season on Chicago Med after portraying Ethan Choi since 2015.
