Chicago Fire: Category 5 (3X22)

Published

on

Chili continues to spend a lot of her time and money on her recent invention, Chileeze. But it seems that she has been using money out of her own account to create the product and she’s broke. But any doubts disappear when Herrmann, enamored with the Chileeze idea, volunteers to mentor Chili through the launch of her product. Brett and Dawson’s pleas to exercise caution fall on deaf ears as Herrmann organizes a fundraiser at Molly’s.

Meanwhile, tensions rise at the station as concerns over Rice ducking during calls in last week’s episode (3X21: We Call Her Jellybean) as well as various other instances involving him as yet again the firehouse is divided both squad and truck. Resentment builds and Severide confronts Otis and Cruz, which in turn causes Casey to consult his prickly team. Otis and Cruz voice their concerns, pointing to Severide’s apparent blindness to Rice’s actions. Casey instructs they stand down, but catches an earful later from Boden who pulls both Casey and Severide into a private discussion and demands the two lieutenants settle the Rice issue on their own.

Casey struggles put aside what happened at Stilettos and leaving his former boss in the dust. Well, it’s about to get worse when P.D. Sergeant Voight contacts Casey with some news about his former business partner. Well it was tough for him to even talk to Voight despite their past. But Voight wants Casey to assist Intelligence in bringing in Nesbitt. Casey turned him down but not before Antonio Dawson gives him information. Intelligence suspects Nesbitt uses Stilettos to traffic women into prostitution. After fielding additional information from P.D., Casey agrees to regain his job at Stilettos and work undercover with Intelligence. Nesbitt soon welcomes him back with open arms and invites him to an event Friday that sounds promising.

At the fundraiser in Molly’s, Chili pitches Chileeze to the bar, but just as she starts to gain an interest from the crew of 51. Things get hairy when Otis and Capp fall into a disagreement over Capp’s right to set his stuff on the table Otis names as Truck-only. Severide takes offense to the move, but when Cruz and Dawson back their teammate Otis, who again accuses Rice of ducking during several rescue attempts, it takes several others to hold back Severide from starting a full-scale fight. Eventually Severide calms – and leads the rest of Squad to another bar. Needless to say, Chili decides to end her pitch and later struggles with the prospect of continuing to pursue Chileeze at all. Herrmann again comes to her aid and doubles down to show his support and offers her a no-interest loan to launch Chileeze the right way. Good move Herrmann taking care of the new kid.

The near-brawl that deepens the divide between the teams not only causes Boden to sit down with Otis in private, it spurs a roommate squabble between Casey and Severide at their apartment. Frustrated by the state of unrest, Severide seeks confirmation from Rice that he sent his malfunctioning equipment to the shop. Rice, annoyed that his friend would even ask him such a question, insists it did and then suggests he and Severide end their friendship.

Later, Intelligence sets Casey up with a hidden phone recorder in preparation for the party at the club. Voight and Mouse teach Casey how to work the device and instruct him to aim for a clear admission of the crimes. But when Casey shows at the event with the phone capturing every sound, Nesbitt’s sketchy associates pat him down for security purposes as they find the phone given to him by the Intelligence crew. From there we hit a cliffhanger ending that will continue next week for the finale of Season 3.

‘Chicago Fire,’ ‘Chicago P.D’ and ‘Chicago Med’ Renewed, ‘Chicago Justice’ On the Fence

Chicago PD renewed

NBC said yes to Chicago, specifically three major Chicago shows.

Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D and Chicago Med will all be returning for the 2017-18 season.

No decision has been made about the fourth and most recent addition to the franchise, Chicago Justice.

It isn’t surprising considering that out of the shows, Justice seems to have the lowest draw, starting out slow when it premiered in March during a three-show crossover.

Also not yet renewed is Wolf’s Law & Order: SVU, despite being the second-highest-rated drama on the network with over 10 million viewers weekly.

P.D is another top performer while Med’s ratings are solid, even after a move to Thursday night.

If Justice and SVU get the boot, Wolf won’t be too concerned as he’s adding yet another drama this year – Law & Order: True Crime — The Menendez Murders.

Dick Wolf. Unstoppable.

Chicago Fire – Deathtrap (5×15)

Published

Chicago Fire Deathtrap

Welcome to part one of the #OneChicago 3 hour, 4 show crossover event. There was a lot of Chicago on television tonight!

Things kicked off with Dick Wolf’s first series, Chicago Fire. The firefighters were responding to a fire at a warehouse in the city with multiple teens inside. Despite their best efforts, Chief Bowden had to pull his men from the fire because it was too big of a risk.

That’s when Olinsky from Chicago PD’s Intelligence Unit ran up frantically exclaiming that his daughter Lexi was inside. Last we saw Lexi, Olinsky called her into the precinct not to ask her to move back in, but to tell her he loved her after dealing with a case where parents lost their young girl. Now he was being faced with that same fate.

Bowden did his friend the favor and went back inside to try to find Lexi. When they brought her to Med, Halstead declared more than 60% of her body had been burned. Her chances of making it were slim but he promised to do everything in his power to save her life.

As the death toll kept rising – we left off at 38 – Bowden and his team were determined to find out the cause of the fire. That’s when they brought in Intelligence and a special unit, who found that it wasn’t an accident, it was actually caused by a lightbulb and some cat litter. Seriously – something so simple you can find online killed so many innocent children.

They initially looked at the owner of the warehouse – a man who claimed to offer kids with little to no money a safe place to stay. When he was further questioned, he shot himself in the bathroom stall at the fire house. Not the best way to end a horrible day.

At that point, the investigation is turned over to Intelligence and knowing that Lexi was a victim propels them to work even harder to find the suspect.

It’s a devastating blow and the whole city comes together to get some justice…. the perfect lead in to Chicago Justice’s very first episode. (But that’s for later.)

Other Important Moments

  • Severide calls Anna to tell her misses her after a brutal night. She shows up at the firehouse to tell him she accepted a job as a pediatric at Med and he couldn’t be happier. Looks like we’ll be seeing a lot more of her in future episodes.
  • Mouch is injured in the fire when a balcony falls on him when he’s trying to save the victims. His heroism shines through as he tells the staff at Med to let him be and focus efforts on those who need help. He then helps a woman cope with the trauma of the fire and knowing she may have hurt someone in order to save herself. Deep.
