Tonight’s new episode of Chicago Fire saw Cruz’s additional struggles with his near death experience, Boden’s first assignment as Deputy District Chief, a possible team change for one of 51’s firefighters, plus the arrival of a deceased firefighter leads the firehouse to reminisce.
Now that he has his new job, Boden had to deal with the not as great perks that come with it. This includes running drills and presentations with other squads that may not be as lively as Firehouse 51.
Before starting work for the day, Severide was impressed with Gallo’s analysis of the apartment building rescue from last week, suggesting he possibly try out for Squad.
Despite asking Cruz and Herrmann about going out for Squad, Gall said he still wants to stay on Truck 81, because he wants to keep learning under Casey before moving up.
Squad was sent out on rescue call to literally rescue a girl who fell in a well. Seriously, a girl playing soccer with her friends fell into a well. It was a pretty easy rescue for Squad 3, but even though Cruz volunteered to go in to rescue, he had another panic attack halfway down. This caused Squad to lift him up, while Severide quickly went in his place to rescue the girl. Afterwards, Severide told Cruz he was suspended, because he is clearly not okay.
Casey advised Severide about making sure that Cruz is okay, and that he is treated carefully, and not to let him deal with his problems alone.
Severide remedied this by taking Cruz out to run drills early in the morning, and provided him ways to keep calm during stressful situations.
Griffin, who is the son of Andy Darden, has arrived to Chicago, wanting answers on how his dad died. For the long-time fans, Andy was a firefighter who was killed in the very first episode of the series. Griffin was six years old at the time of his death, and has never been told how his father died. Casey showed him the house that caught on fire that killed his father, and explained the whole story. The editing even showed flashbacks from the pilot episode to show what a great guy Andy was.
Griffin revealed that his mother is in jail, with another DUI, and that his brother is spiraling as well. This is going to spike the hero complex in Casey’s mind, because now he wants to help Griffin, and his brother.
A determined Sylvie continued to prepare her extra Paramedical program, now called Paramedicine, to the new paramedic chief, who quickly rejected her proposal for “bad timing.” This greatly hurt her, but this will come back as the season progresses, as she wants to make sure that this program gets off the ground.
Surprisingly, Mouch knows the new paramedic chief, Hawkins, because he’s close with his dad, and he tried to get him to change his mind on Sylvie’s program, which he said he may reconsider.
Sylvie and Violet were sent to rescue a victim who was on the bad end of a stabbing. His friend that was with him abandoned the scene as they arrived, and the two paramedics sadly could not rescue him.
Violet, Gallo, and Ritter have begun their microbrewing business, and wanted to begin expanding their business, and Herrmann set him up with a friend who has invested in breweries in the past.
This episode was definitely jammed packed with emotion. With Griffin seeking answers about his father, and wanting to see where it was when his mom and brother started falling apart. On top of that, Cruz’s PTSD, and even Sylvie’s first setback with her program. It seems to me that all of the big plotlines surrounding this season will all come to a head at once, and we don’t know for sure where it will head to.
Casey is going to head to where Griffin is next week, and considering he always wants to do what’s best for others, he may likely try to see if he can end up being a foster parent to these kids. Last time he did this, he ended up in a major custody battle. This could lead to a lot of different possibilities for Casey, as well as Sylvie, considering their relationship is still in the early stages.

Coffee Table News
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.

Check out the synopsis for Season 11 Episode 5: “Firehouse 51 hosts a Halloween open house; Kidd and Severide help a young girl after she gets kicked out of her home.”

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