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

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.

    Why Is Taylor Kinney Leaving ‘Chicago Fire’?

    Published

    on

    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.

    Chicago Fire Finale Review: The Magnificent City of Chicago (10×22)

    Chicago Fire The Magnificent City of Chicago Review 10x22

    Wedding bells are ringing, and Casey makes his grand return for Chicago Fire’s epic season finale!

    After Severide got jumped by a gang last week, it was time to plan a wedding! Herrmann gathered the entire firehouse together, and gave everyone (except Emma) jobs that will secure the quickest wedding setup in history. Stella even asked Boden to give her away at the altar. Despite the writing saying that Casey might not show up, Casey showed up! It was great to see Jesse Spencer back in the role we’ve gone so used to seeing him play for the last ten years.

    With Sylvie back in the house, she threw Stella a surprise makeshift bachelorette party, which was freaking adorable. On the other hand, Casey and Severide had one of their old fashioned bro moments, since it is most likely going to be the last one we see of them.

    Disaster struck as the venue they thought they had booked, had to go back on their word, as a previously cancelled wedding decided to be back on. Casey came to the rescue once again, as he bought out a tour boat for all the guests, and the captain of the ship will be able to marry Severide and Stella.

    Severide started to meet with several officers who were looking to start a case against Thomas Campbell, who runs a narotic ring and organized the attack on Severide after the food truck case. While heading to talk to the investigators, Severide was attacked again, but shoved the henchman out a window in self-defense. Regardless, Severide still committed to testify to help the investigation.

    The showdown between Emma and Violet came to a head as well. Sylvie returned to Chicago, and Violet filled her in on all of the blackmailing schemes that Emma has started up against her and Hawkins. Hawkins went to his higher ups and wanted to find a way for Violet to somehow escape this situation, even if he had to take the biggest hit for it.

    A house fire brought some news to light about Emma. Violet, Stella, Gallo, and Emma were helping a pregnant woman next door neighbor who was hit with debris, when the fire started spreading to their location. Everyone else was calm, but Emma wanted to high-tail it out of the building without everyone. The fire stressed out Emma, and she bolted, abandoning the team inside. The team who had the guts to stay helped deliver the woman’s baby with flames all around them.

    Hawkins, who arrived at the fire, saw the whole thing unfold, and discarded the blackmail, and fired Emma for abandoning her crew.

    Casey gave Gallo his favorite axe, as he doesn’t use it a whole lot out in Oregon. This is quite literally the passing of the torch for the future of Firehouse 51, as Gallo is sure to grow as a firefighter in future seasons.

    At the end, the wedding began, with John Legend’s “All of Me” playing, and I rolled my eyes since that was one of the most cliche things possible. They both had adorable wedding vows which I’m sure actors will use for future audition monologues.

    Chief Boden danced during the party, and I think that’s the only important thing I’ll ever need to see on my screen the rest of the year. However, the door did close on Sylvie and Casey, as she decided to stay in Chicago, and he is going back to Oregon, where his life really is.

    It wouldn’t be a finale without a cliffhanger! As Stella and Severide begin their honeymoon in a cabin, a mysterious truck silently arrives, assuming it might be someone hunting Severide.

    This was a great finale! It tied up the loose ends of Emma’s situation (see, I told you there would be a loophole to get her out)! We also got Casey’s full conclusion, and even though it is the end of his time here, we at least get Sylvie back in Ambulance 61. Who knows, maybe they’ll continue to reference Casey in every episode like they did after he left. Season 11 is sure to be some great twists and stories, with Severide having to go against this narotics ring, and adjusting to married life. I think sparks are in the air for Violet and Gallo…again.
