Chicago Fire Review: Keep You Safe (10×17)

Chicago Fire/ NBC



Violet and Hawkins’ relationship is brought to the higher ups, Stella takes the charge to investigate a mysterious car crash, and Cruz began to adjust to a new atmosphere in tonight’s latest episode.

This week’s central case related to a car crash, where the car was split in half, injuring several in the car. The driver was okay, but he suspiciously ran away after Violet and her new partner Emma Jacobs went to look on other victims. Stella saved a woman, Adriana from the other half of the car, and left Stella a message. She dropped a receipt of a high value ATM withdrawal into Stella’s pocket.

Stella visited Adriana at the hospital, and her alibi changed from what she told police, and what she said to Stella. Stella suspected that Adriana is part of a very abusive relationship, since she noticed bruises on her neck that came from being strangled, not from the car crash. She hinted to Severide that she was also in a relationship like that, definitely triggering a horrible time from her past.

The police investigated the withdrawal, and it came from the account of the deceased car owner of the maximum amount from several different branches of the bank. The driver was a car-jacker, going to different banks with their victims and getting money.

After Stella gave an incredible speech to Adriana about standing up to her abuser, Adriana told her everything, and gave the name of the driver, Tiller Martel, who was arrested shortly thereafter.

After being spotted making out against an ambulance, an official complaint was filed about the two, which the Deputy Chief Paramedic has to bring to a council of higher ups in the department. Violet spent the episode hiding from Hawkins, and avoiding Gallo, who tried his darndest through most of the episode to approach her about the situation. The pair got off with a verbal warning, and Hawkins ended the relationship, so that they could both get their grounding back in the department. Despite this, the two reconciled and got back together at the end of the episode, because no one can stop true love.

Violet suspected Gallo of being the one who filed the complaint against her. Gallo denied the allegation, and told her it was the paramedic who spied them who filed the complaint, and Gallo was trying to warn her. He’s now questioning their friendship, as he would never do something like that to her.

In the last episode, Cruz took in an immigrant boy Javi, and is taking care of him while his case worker looked for any family members of the boy. Javi adjusted to the family day-to-days, and improved his English to communicate with both Cruz and Chloe. Cruz was called into Javi’s school in the middle of shift, giving him a near heart attack, being the big old softie that he is. However, Javi’s teacher informed him of Javi’s brightened mood, and more interaction with other kids. We got special bonding moments with this newly formed family, and it was so adorable to see Cruz being a family man and helping Javi with his homework.

The case worker told Cruz and Chloe that they can not find any relatives in the United States for Javi, and Cruz and Chloe began the process of being Javi’s full time caretakers.

This episode had a lot of heart, and a great central case. For once, no one was inspecting anything about arson! It gave us a great side of Stella connecting and sticking her neck out for victims.

Whether she’s a new permanent character or not, the introduction of Emma Jacobs was a great addition to this episode, as she serves as a great foil to Violet, and is also great in the field, which she demonstrated with ease helping out several injured hockey players.

Cruz has always been a strong core to this show, and it has been so exciting to see him become a father, and he’s so GOOD at it, but that shouldn’t surprise us at all.

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.

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



Chicago Fire The Magnificent City of Chicago Review 10x22

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.
