So much to get to this episode as this is the somewhat pilot episode for the new Chicago spin-off Chicago Med. 51 arrives at a dangerous industrial ammonia leak and rescues dozens of victims in need of urgent care, rushing the whole group to Chicago Med. The team’s greeted by an already overloaded ER with folks who have the flu. Dr. Hannah Tramble, Will Halstead (Brother of PD’s Jay Halstead) and Severide’s friend/nurse April Sexton are on site to help, until a man emerges with a grenade in his hand. He makes a strange statement about a virus being worse than Ebola and pulls the pin. Severide shoves him aside but the grenade exploded and Severide knocked unconscious and hit with shrapnel. Since he was ill with a grenade on hand they order a hospital lockdown with no one allowed in or out of the building. Will, April and Tramble tend to the injuries and confusion inside while Boden grapples with an angry man desperate to leave the scene of the terrorist attack.
Dr. Daniel Charles, Chicago Med’s chief psychologist, comes to Boden’s aid and talks to one of the victims down. This allows for Boden to usher the man and a few additional stragglers back into the hospital.
Inside an operating room, Mills and Brett help Tramble in an effort to save Severide from his wounds. They manage to stabilize him for a moment. Diane Claman arrives in a Hazmat suit from Infectious Disease. She starts to test the area while Casey and Otis make a scary discovery of an electrical fire in the ceiling. However they are out of extinguishers. They call for supplies from the outside. But Sharon Goodwin the head of Chicago Med forbids anyone from entering Chicago Med and risking exposure. Cruz, Mouch, Rice and the rest of the stranded team all volunteer to help find them despite Goodwin’s orders. They extinguish the fire but are still trapped inside.
Back outside the hospital, Halstead and Ruzek from Chicago P.D. arrive and Will informs them of the attack. They investigate as best they can without entering the scene itself and receive a major break when the parents of the attacker inform them that their son worked at a lab that studied infectious diseases. Turns out he had contact with a Soviet-era biological weapon, a specific strain of which concerns Claman. If this man passed the incubation period when he killed himself, Chicago Med may be the ground zero of an outbreak. Claman uses Herrmann’s blood to sample whether or not the hospital remains infected… and he clears the test. Signifying that no one inside is infected lifting the quarantine order.
During Severide’s various surgeries, visions of Shay slip into his mind. Tramble manages to remove all the shrapnel and he gets back to normal. He soon regains consciousness as April in his room and confesses his flirtation with death scared he. Severide remembers nothing from the entire day.
Later, everyone celebrates at Molly’s, where Boden delivers a thankful speech for Chicago Med’s incredible work today. Goodwin counters with a statement of her own and echoes his sentiment, reminding that firefighters and the hospital must always work together and that they rely on each other’s professionalism and skill. After the events of that day, Dawson and Casey end up making out with each other at his place. Well about time you two, but how long will this last? Guess we’ll find out next week. But a heads up, coming April 28 Chicago Fire, PD and Law & Order SVU join forces once again for another crossover event. Be sure to stay tuned.
Chicago PD: Tracy Spiridakos Teases Fire/PD Crossover, ‘Upzek’’s’ Future, and Relationship with Halstead
Chicago PD and Chicago Fire are teaming up for yet another exciting crossover!
On Wednesday, Feb. 20th, Intelligence and Firehouse 51 will work together after a string of robberies lead to a building fire.
However, Tracy Spiridakos, who plays Hailey Upton, revealed that the situation might get more personal when Voight suspects a firefighter may be involved.
‘Chicago Fire,’ ‘Chicago P.D’ and ‘Chicago Med’ Renewed, ‘Chicago Justice’ On the Fence
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)
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.
