Chicago Fire Review: An Officer With Grit (10×14)

Chicago Fire/ NBC



A cold Chicago winter affected our favorite firehouse this evening, as a daring rescue was made, Stella eyes a brand new job, and Violet began to reap the benefits of her new relationship.

A truck carrying massive metal poles (every driver’s nightmare) crashed on the highway, with the driver clinging over the side for dear life. Another firehouse, 72, had to help stabilize the truck, while Severide had to vertically rescue the driver. This inspired Gallo to want to take more classes at the academy and join Squad, which Severide highly endorsed. Gallo asked the academy, and the class was full, sending Gallo into sad boy mode. However, Severide sent him straight, saying “there’s a fine line between being driven, and being a pain in the ass.” In the end, there was an injury in the class, leaving a spot open, and Severide began to train Gallo on catching up on the coursework, by doing vertical drops over the side of a parking garage.

After the call, the lieutenant of 72, Boswell, told Kidd that he is transferring, giving Kidd the idea to want to put her name in the ring for a lieutenant position. Boden let Stella know that someone else is being considered for the position, but would look into it, which after doing so, gave him the idea to set up the paperwork to make Stella a lieutenant!

After Pelham found out about Stella’s transfer, he too fell into sad boy hours, because he knows how much truck 81 means to Stella. He ended up clearing with Boden so that he will take the spot on 72, and giving Stella his job on 81. Pelham knows everyone looks up to Stella, and admitted that the job never felt like it was his, and told her what a fantastic inspiration she is.

Violet and Chief Hawkins, having just begun a relationship, tried their best to keep the relationship secret. But that didn’t stop Hawkins from playing favorites. After Ambulance 61’s heating stabilizers broke, Hawkins bumped them to the front of the line to be fixed, inconveniencing several trucks that really needed the repair. Violet continued to lie about the relationship to Sylvie, and ended up going to his apartment after their shift.

Mouch was approached by a man, Spiro, who used to own Molly’s, who is crossing a revisit to his old stomping ground off his bucket list. Because of this guy’s shady past with the mob, and nearly burning Molly’s to the ground, Herrmann was hesitant to want to let him tend bar. Herrmann put him to the test, making him a Sazerac. Herrmann’s soft side allowed it, but Spiro’s loud former regulars made their grand entrance. They wrecked the place, smoked cigarettes everywhere, and left a very angry Herrmann. Spiro ended up giving all the money that was given to him, which was well over $4000 back to Herrmann, making him feel like a jerk.

I have to say, this was probably my favorite episode of this season. We saw a great end-line for Pelham on the show, and Brett Dalton gave a great performance as this troubled lieutenant. There was great growth for Gallo, Stella, and Violet, as they all are about to begin different phases both in their careers, and personal lives, and I can’t wait to see where it goes. As with most themes in this show, these three characters will also face a setback in this, which could easily affect that trajectory of where they want to go, and I can’t wait to see where it goes next.

    When Will ‘Chicago Fire’ Return? Here’s When Season 12 Kicks Off Filming



    Fans have been patiently waiting for the 12th season of Chicago Fire, which was announced back in April by NBC. 

    The network renewed all three of the One Chicago shows at the time, including Chicago PD for season 11 and Chicago Med for season 9. 

    Typically, new seasons of the dramas would’ve started in September as part of the network’s fall lineup, however, production on the shows was significantly delayed due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. The writers’ strike ended a bit before the actors’ strike, which meant that the writing staff was able to get back to work penning the scripts in October, however, things remained at a standstill until the SAG-AFTRA union negotiated a promising contract with the studios and allowed actors to get back to making shows and movies. 

    Thankfully, with the strikes officially over, the shows are back in business. 

    According to a Chicago Fire Extras post on Facebook, the drama set at Firehouse 51 will be kicking off filming on Monday, Nov. 27! 


    And that means that we’re on track to get new episodes of the 12th season in 2024 as a premiere date has been announced as Wednesday, January 17.

    With Chicago Fire back in business, it’s safe to say the sister shows are following suit—and we’ll have new episodes to watch sooner rather than later. 

    CBS already unveiled its lineup for regularly scheduled programming, beating out all the other networks to the announcement, but if theirs is anything to go by, new content will be landing as soon as February. Some of your favorite sitcoms and dramas on CBS, including the NCIS franchise, Ghosts, and the FBI shows, will all be kicking off after the Super Bowl.
