The episode begins with Rice and Severide at a diner before shift starts and talk old times with an unlikely guest – mutual friend April from Chicago Med. Severide requests some one-on-one time and reconnects with April later at the botanical garden. She reveals why she felt betrayed by him in high school despite staying at her house for a summer while his family sorted out issues. It turns out the reason he ignored her in school was because his dad cheated on his mom with a teacher from their school. Severide assures her that he’s a different guy now, and they solidify their reunion by meeting at her parents’ house for a potluck.
Back at 51, a call to an apartment fire sends the squad to Herrmann’s old neighborhood where he grew up. The fire rages and Herrmann risks his life to save a baby inside, defying an order from Boden in the process. Once the baby boy gets to the ambulance, Herrmann calms Slater, the frantic father, connecting with the man’s understandable sense of dread. But the rescue gets complicated when Officer Burgess and Roman stop by 51 and reveals that a friend of Slater’s videotaped him blowing meth smoke into his baby’s face earlier that day. The negligence may have caused the fire, and now Slater’s gone. This news hits Herrmann hard, and the squad returns to the neighborhood for a little investigating of their own.
Herrmann approaches an old neighbor and discovers everyone knows Slater’s an addict and points Herrmann to a bar. After sitting on the information for a little while, Herrmann heads over to the bar, finds Slater and beats him without mercy, irate that he would jeopardize his son for an addiction. Luckily Casey shows up in time to separate the two men and help subside Herrmann’s rage. Burgess and Roman toss Slater into jail and announce that the fire is officially considered arson. Casey keeps this moment under wraps.
Meanwhile, Dawson notices Brett avoiding Cruz, and the roommates discuss the faltering relationship at home. Brett confesses that she plans to break up with Cruz over dinner, but feels awful about dumping such a nice guy. With Dawson’s support, Brett heads to the dinner ready to end the relationship… except Cruz beats her to it and dumps Brett. Are you freaking kidding me? Does anyone ever stay together for long? Rhetorical question of course.
Another imperfect scenario comes to fruition when Mills’ sister flies into town with big news that their grandfather’s estate left them a restaurant in North Carolina. She presses Mills to move out there and open up the restaurant together, excited for a new start. But when Mills hears from his doctor that he’s cleared for the squad again, his decision appears clear. He wants to fight fires again, and Elise relents.
At Chicago Med, all of 51 gathers when news breaks that the baby Herrmann rescued developed a blood clot. While they wait on word from the doctors, Chaplain Orlovsky stops by to chat with Herrmann. Surprisingly, Herrmann reveals a deep guilt for rescuing the baby. Orlovsky urges him to focus on the righteousness of his action rather than the unfortunate state of the present. However, when the doctor announces that the baby did not survive the surgery, Herrmann struggles to hide his emotions. It’s not until he attends church with his family and listens to Orlovsky speak about loss and faith that Herrmann finally feels at peace. Such a powerful episode that had all a Twitter a buzz plus the fact this was David’s finest performance on this show. Well, the show will take a break for a few weeks and will return April 7.
NBC Gives Three Season Renewal to One Chicago Shows ‘Chicago PD,’ ‘Chicago Fire,’ and ‘Chicago Med’
And that’s what we call a triple sweep!
Your favorite ER docs, firefighters, and detectives aren’t going anywhere anytime soon because NBC just gave the #OneChicago universe a massive pick-up.
All three series in Dick Wolf’s “Chicago” franchise will be returning for an additional three more seasons.
According to Deadline, the renewals are part of a new deal between Wolf and Universal Studios.
“Dick Wolf has proven time and time again that he makes shows audiences love,” said Paul Telegdy, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “We are delighted, excited and proud that as part of this epic deal with Wolf Entertainment, NBC’s loyal audience will know that their favorite shows have a certain future for the next three years.”
His other highly-rated and highly-performing drama, Law & Order SVU, also snagged three more seasons.
While nabbing three seasons at one time is surely a feat to be proud of, it isn’t unheard of at NBC, a network that loves to reward shows that simultaneously perform well live, in DVR viewing, and can also be syndicated. And if they have large, dedicated followings — which all 4 Wolf shows do — it only works in their favor.
The shows join the previously renewed medical drama New Amsterdam and the emotional family drama This Is Us, which was scored a three-season renewal.
Following the exciting news, the shows will have to renegotiate contracts with talent. Since three-years is a pretty massive chunk of time, it’s possible that not all of your favorites will stick around for the full-term.
Wolf has found success in both keeping his lead around for the entire duration of a series like Mariska Hargitay on Law & Order: SVU or swapping out the full cast entirely to offer a different perspective and reinvent the wheel. Either way, it’s bound to be successful and lucrative.
Are you excited about the renewals?

The First ‘Chicago Fire’ and ‘Chicago PD’ Crossover of 2020 Is Coming – Watch the Promo
Fans of Chicago PD, Chicago Med, and Chicago Fire will have to wait an additional week for new episodes.
The One Chicago universe is taking a break this Wednesday (February 19) as it gears up for the first crossover of 2020.
The two-part crossover excludes Chicago Med, though the series will kick off the hour with an intense episode of its own, and instead, finds PD and Fire teaming up to respond to a national epidemic.
It even brings back a beloved PD character, although, it’s not in a way that you’d expect and might not be all that great for Roman (guest star Brian Geraghty).
Here’s what to expect from the crossover airing Wednesday, February 26!
