Chicago Fire: Forgive You Anything (3X17)

The episode begins with Severide on his way to work when his friend Scott Rice informs him that he is ready to come back to 51. He tells this news to Boden and he agrees to invite him for a trial run for an open postion thanks to Newhouse leaving. It seems however that Rice’s past was a tough one with rumors that  he has a temper. But with this new development Mills is not happy with the supposed position as he was slated to return to squad after he was cleared by the doctor.

He tries to prove himself worthy during a rescue call at the Chicago Theater. Rather than wait for backup Mills goes up himself and discovers a total lack of vertigo. After this he announces to Severide that he plans to pass a physical to rejoin squad. Yet Severide says that it’s Boden’s decision. So with that Mills makes a visit to the doctor who presents him with more bad news as he now has to pass a series of tests, not just one.

When Rice arrives at 51, he makes sure to express gratitude to Boden and manages to charm the squad in the process, yet Otis still wants to know about Rice’s shaky past. Casey mentions as much to Severide, who immediately dismisses the rumor with facts that paint Rice as far more understanding. It so happens he threw a guy out a window as a conniving, desperate criminal. Moreover, Otis learns from Boden that the event occurred one week after Rice’s wife passed away. We somewhat feel for the guy.

Later, Rice informs Severide that another old friend of theirs, April Sexton, works at the Chicago Med emergency room. Ecstatic, Severide stops by the hospital, eager to catch up, yet April surprises him with the cold shoulder, offended by a past mistake. He returns later with ticket stubs from a concert they attended in high school, and the reminder seems to thaw her just enough to rekindle their friendship.

Meanwhile, Dawson and Brett make plans for a night on the town, but when Brett asks Cruz to join them, he declines the invitation and makes it clear that his clubbing days are over. So Brett and Dawson go without him, and Dawson notices Brett enjoying herself just a little too much without her boyfriend in tow. They regroup later and Brett confesses that her relationship with Cruz feels a lot like her previous relationships, and no matter how much she adores Cruz, she doesn’t want that life.

Back at 51, Mouch receives a sudden visit from Emmett who reveals that he wanted to vet Mouch on behalf of his half-sister – Mouch’s actual child. Unimpressed by Mouch’s indecision, Emmett exits without giving Mouch a lick of information. The confrontation shocks Mouch, but it also motivates him to try to meet his daughter, and he comes clean to Platt about the entire situation. She understands his hesitation and offers to track down Emmett’s contact information, which Mouch uses to corner Emmett at his job and request a second chance. Emmett relents and Mouch soon meets his daughter Lizzy as they have dinner together and get to know one another. I’m sure we’ll see more of her in the coming weeks.

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.
