So much happened in last night’s episode that
Dawson and Shay arrive at a remote cabin for a much-needed girls’ weekend away from the city… except two minutes into their stay Dawson breaks down, frustrated by her relationship with Casey. Between the never-ending apartment search and his recent injury, they’re both stressed and Dawson now doubts her commitment. Shay comes to the rescue with some alcohol and the two friends commiserate over the drama at 51 and even discuss Jones – until the husband-and-wife owners of the cabin interrupt with a feud so loud Dawson and Shay can hear them from next door. Their argument escalates outside and ends with the husband driving away, and immediately wrecking his car!
The vacationing EMTs rush over to the husband and discover him suffering from a possible spinal injury and a major loss of blood. They work fast to save his life, improvising with duct tape and dishrags to stop the bleeding while the couple makes amends (a fact not lost on Dawson). The ambulance arrives not a moment too soon and carts him away, with Dawson left pondering the grand meaning of the moment.
Back at the station, Boden assures Jones she won’t be transferred – not by him, at least. She expresses her doubts, disappointed by her father’s decision, but takes a personal day to sort out her next move. Casey notices her demeanor and, feeling for her situation, follows up with Chief Jones – but her father won’t even hear it. It’s not looking good for Candidate Jones.
The same can be said for Bloom. Severide receives a courtesy call from Desk Sergeant Platt at CPD informing him that Bloom came in on a DUI. Severide vouches for him with the understanding that Bloom will attend rehab and Bloom agrees, but shows up late – and drunk – to the first meeting. Upset, Severide senses Bloom’s personal secrecy drives him to drink and when Boden takes a call from Bloom’s old firehouse in Denver, it sounds like the answer to the mystery lies right around the corner. Mouch has an even bigger mystery to solve: women. After changing his profile pic on the dating site Golden Oldeez, he lands a blind date and, in turn, a room full of opinions on how to win her over. They coach him as best they can… and it all falls apart when the date actually happens. Lucky for him, once he stops trying to impress, he and his date appear to make a real connection.
At Molly’s, Jones stops by in search of Dawson – why isn’t she answering her phone? Herrmann informs her about the girls’ weekend and the shoddy cell service out in the boonies. Disappointed, Jones shares her big news – she will abandon her dream of firefighting and transfer to PR. An unexpected heart-to-heart occurs between the two as Jones reveals her dad’s motive – after losing her mom to a car accident, he feels the need to protect Jones at every turn. Herrmann offers up Molly’s as solace whenever she needs it; she thanks him, and before leaving, requests that he tell Dawson she dropped by.Jones makes it back to her apartment and, as tears stream down her face, she writes a note and seals it in an envelope. On the front she addresses it to Dawson who arrives home to Casey ready to forgive all the recent relationship strains. Her being away had the same effect on him, but before things can heat up an urgent call stops them cold. Dawson’s face drops as she relays the news they just found Jones’ body.
Don’t miss an all new episode next week also congrats to the series for another season set to go this Fall! Also our sister show Chicago P.D. has also gained another season so we have that to look forward to.

Chicago Med returns for season 9, Fire for season 12, and Med for season 11.

Law & Order franchises will have their moment on Thursday, Jan 18 with Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Organized Crime.
Part 1 of The Voice returns on Feb. 26, along with BC’s new Deal or No Deal spinoff, Deal or No Deal Island.

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.
And the good news is that Taylor Kinney’s Kelly Severide is making a comeback after a ten-month hiatus. Back in January, the actor announced a personal leave of absence from the series, but fans are surely eager to see him back on the firefighter drama once again!
One Chicago Shows Score a Massive Renewal at NBC
Don’t worry, your favorite One Chicago shows aren’t going anywhere anytime soon!
As the 2022-2023 TV season winds down, TV networks are already looking to the future, and the upcoming 2023-2024 broadcast season.
Per TVLine, Chicago Fire has been renewed for season 12, Chicago PD for season 11, and Chicago Med for season 9.
Fans will also be delighted to know that Dick Wolf’s other shows, Law & Order, Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Organized Crime have also been renewed.
“I’m pleased to continue my four-decade relationship with Universal Television and NBC,” Dick Wolf said in a statement. “All six shows being picked up again is the ultimate accolade to our incredible casts, producers and writers. I’d also like to thank our loyal fans who have kept our NBC shows on the air for what will be a cumulative 84 seasons.”
Renewals and cancelations are a big deal, with many audiences patiently awaiting verdicts for their favorite dramas.
