Chicago Fire: Madmen And Fools (3X06)



Last week we saw Casey having it against his brother-in-law for the pain he caused against his sister and the hardships she had to ensue. Casey barges into Jim’s office ready to rumble, only Jim sends him back with surprising news it turns out that Christie co-signed every document authorizing the asset transfers. So with Newhouse’s help, Christie secures a solid lawyer, but he warns that a battle like this often ends poorly and without full compensation. Christie takes this to heart and shocks Casey by deciding to accept the settlement rather than fight it out with her soon-to-be ex. But his niece’s fear and undeserved guilt pushes Casey to continue, and he requests Newhouse to dig deeper – and finds that Jim’s mistress has a warrant out for her arrest in Alabama. Casey takes this evidence to Jim and pressures him to do right by his daughter… or risk losing his mistress and his money.

Chicago Fire

Money’s on Newhouse’s mind when he enlists a reluctant Mills to help him with a recovery side job involving a stolen dog. Mills stands guard and suspects the worst when gunshots fire while Newhouse sprints from a house with the dog in his arms. The true dog’s owner pays Newhouse handsomely for the risk and Mills feels uncomfortable with the whole deal… until Newhouse hands over his cut from the job. It’s not all glory, though – Newhouse later takes a blindside beating from a hooded man that leaves him bleeding and reeling from the man’s threat: he knows where to find Newhouse.

Chicago Fire

Back on the job, Severide and Herrmann perform a balancing act to save a woman’s son from a balcony railing disaster, but at the hospital police take him away from her, pointing to a past case of child abuse. When she begs Brett for assistance at 51, Severide denies the mother any slack and warns Brett about getting too close to victims. Brett advocates the opposite, intent that the mother deserves a second chance. She rallies Severide and they visit the mom and discover everything in order with zero evidence of an abusive household. But even a good word with the overworked Child Protective Services lands them in a bureaucratic stalemate… until Brett demands they take action. In a huge win for Brett’s morale, CPS rules in the mother’s favor and reunites the child with his mom. The good vibes continue for Brett when Severide asks her on an impromptu trip to Vegas. She turns him down… did she just miss an opportunity? I say nice job Brett you deserve better. His name is Mills…just saying.

Chicago Fire

Opportunity knocks for Dawson, too as Herrmann pushes her to the limit, forcing her to train on frustrating drills she already learned at the academy. After a succession of exhausting activities, Dawson snaps and pleads with Herrmann to allow her to do her job a chance she receives during a joint effort with a police matter that requires her to help break down a door. Herrmann calls on her to bust it down and, despite her earlier frustration, all the training pays off. She nails it.

Chicago Fire

Casey receives a payoff too when all his pressure on Jim results in a major about-face – not only does Jim double the child support payments, he also covers his daughter’s tuition and takes their house off the market. Despite all the good news, Casey elects to keep his methods a secret from Christie and Violet.

Meanwhile, in Vegas (or if you didn’t pay attention to the table it said Horseshoe in Hammond, IN) Severide’s down to his last $75 at the craps table when he discovers a good luck charm in the form of guest star Serinda Swan of Graceland. With his incessant urging, she scores assists him at the table and scores big on two rolls of the dice. The crowd erupts and Severide kisses her impulsively and she kisses back…dang man. He’s still got it. Damn you Severide!!!

Well we are off next week because of the election but in two weeks its the ultimate crossover beginning with our show and continuing Wednesday with Law And Order SVU and Chicago PD. Here’s a sneak peak and we’ll see you in two weeks.

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.
