Chicago Fire: Nobody Touches Anything (3X07) #crossoverweek

Published

on


Two weeks ago we saw Severide in Vegas with a girl at the craps table. Well guess what it resulted to. Severide got married! He shares the details to prove the marriage actually occurred, but everyone remains skeptical. Even Casey who offers to let the newlyweds stay at the apartment and the house places a bet on how long this impulsive marriage will last.

But when a worried Dawson confronts Severide, he defends his decision refuting her assertion that he’s hiding his unsettled emotions about Shay’s death behind the marriage. He points out that not only is he happy, but that Dawson and Casey are the ones hiding. This strikes a chord with Dawson and it’s not until she sees Severide with new wife Brittany Baker (Guest Star: Serinda Swan) that she feels at ease. Brittany manages to address the craziness of the situation head-on and impresses the whole gang with her personality (and donuts). At first angry with Casey for offering up their apartment to someone they hardly know, Dawson soon admits to liking Brittany and, indeed, that the newlyweds appear happy. That being said, in private Severide and Brittany express their uncertainty to each other. Are they doing the right thing? Is this happening too fast? In either case, they confess their love for each other and agree that meeting and marrying in Vegas saved their lives. They kiss, both emotional, both ready to take on the world together…till she goes back to Graceland. Just kidding. For those that don’t know Serinda is on a USA Network TV series called Graceland.

Meanwhile, Newhouse continues to take on the world in secret, avoiding Mills’ questions regarding fresh bruises and instead offering up another job opportunity. But even after another successful job with Newhouse, Mills discovers a death threat in his friend’s car at the station. Upset, Mills rips into Newhouse for bringing his problems into Firehouse 51. Newhouse finally reveals his motivation for all the outside gigs: his daughter’s academic decathlon team made the finals in Washington D.C. and he needs $2,000 to cover her expenses. This softens Mills who, with Casey’s help, raises cash at Molly’s for the cause. The money stuns Newhouse, but Mills assures him this is just part of being 51 family. They help each other out.

An even newer member of the firehouse family, Brett, signs up for a highly rated Zumba class in order to bring a little of her old Indiana routine into Chicago. But less than a minute into her first day she makes a shocking discovery Cruz is the teacher? Whoa now!!! Cruz pulls Brett aside and pleads with her to stay quiet about his second career. In exchange for her silence, she offers to teach him how to cook for Molly’s II, explaining that she loves to cook, but on her own schedule. Baffled by his good fortune, Cruz accepts and the next day she teaches Cruz a recipe for an impressive ravioli dish. Could this be the signature dish that sets Molly’s II apart from all the other food trucks? Mouch, Herrmann and Otis seem to think so. What’s for dinner?

Later, at a routine apartment fire rescue, Severide stumbles upon a box full of disturbing photos, each one involving young children. He calls in Chicago P.D.’s Lindsay and Voight to take the photos as evidence. When Lindsay pores over them she sees a familiar face among the photos. One of them is her brother Ted, about 10 years old in the photo. Voight consoles her as she tears up, but when they discover a link between the photos and a database of missing children in New York, Lindsay knows her next move.

Chicago Fire

She’s going to New York City’s Special Victims Unit where Crossover Week continues.

Chicago PD Review & Interview – Tracy Spiridakos on Big #Upstead Moment (8×11)

Published

on

Chicago PD Signs of Violence Review Season 8 Episode 11

Upton’s childhood trauma bubbled up to the surface on Chicago PD Season 8 Episode 11.

This isn’t the first time the series has touched upon Upton’s past, but audiences were able to get a better grasp at the hell she went through while growing up in a household of domestic abuse.

Up until now, she never fully confronted how it affected her into adulthood.

On Chicago PD Season 8 Episode 3, Upton couldn’t even bring herself to visit her father after he suffered a heart attack. 

The truth is, she’s been running from her past for her whole life, but the trauma has finally caught up with her and it’s significantly affecting every aspect of her life including her career and her promising, new relationship.

And she’s beginning to realize that if she lets this bruised part of herself continue to get in the way, it could jeopardize everything she’s ever cared about.

The case was solid with or without an anchor to Upton’s personal life as the outcome wasn’t obvious. Also, how gruesome was that scene of the mother with her teeth pulled out and her fingertips burnt off?

Upton responded to a call that involved a young child who has endured a lifetime of emotional and physical abuse. 

She immediately felt drawn to the little girl, Becca, as she saw herself in her pained yet hopeful face.

And Upton went to great lengths to help her. On one hand, her determination played a key role in solving the case, but on the other hand, it was dangerous because she was willing to break the rules and go against Voight’s orders. 

Since she was fueled by emotion, she wasn’t thinking clearly, which made it easy for her to misstep and cross a line.

Throughout the episode, I wanted to shake Upton and tell her to snap out of it, but she was so focused. It almost felt like she thought she could save herself by saving Becca.

Coming from a dysfunctional family gives Upton good instincts. Her personal involvement in the case is largely the reason Intelligence found Becca in time.

However, it also forced her to reassess her approach. 

After her heart-to-heart with Voight, Upton realized that she couldn’t go on like this and pretend that her past wasn’t seeping into her present. 

A childhood fueled by control, manipulation, betrayal, and abuse also made it hard for Upton to form a real connection with another person.

Even before she took on the case, Upton bolted right after Halstead said the L-word.

While it’s a huge moment in their relationship, for Upton, it was a trigger because she’s only ever known a dysfunctional level of love.

Whenever someone would say “I love you,” there was always a catch. So, when Halstead said it, she was waiting for the other foot to drop.

Instead of allowing herself to get hurt, she wanted to beat him to the punch and run the other way.

That’s why her eventual decision to open up to Halstead and be vulnerable and transparent about her fears and insecurities was a huge step. 

I love that Halstead didn’t try to “fix” Upton; He simply listened to what she needed while promising to be patient and stay by her side. 

I wasn’t completely sold on #TeamUpstead prior to this episode because I’m used to the relationships on this series crumbling for one reason or another, but I’m digging the direction that this is going in. 

Not every relationship starts in the honeymoon phase, and it’s clear Halstead cares enough about her to support her and help her get to a good point. 

Hopefully, the series continues with the storyline and doesn’t drop Upton’s emotional turmoil.

We don’t need a whole episode dedicated to her working through her issues, but it would be nice to see some continuity whenever #Upstead’s relationship gets future screen time.

We got to chat with Tracy Spiridakos, who plays Hailey Upton, about the game-changing episode!

Chicago PD Review – The Radical Truth (8×10)

Chicago PD Review The Radical Truth Season 8 Episode 10

Disco Bob made quite a mess for himself on Chicago PD Season 8 Episode 10.

The Ruzek-focused episode was a nice welcome back following a brief hiatus. And it let our boy Patrick Flueger shine. But that’s not really surprising, is it?

Bob Ruzek’s 30-year career with the CPD has been a bit strained, as has his relationship with his son, Adam.

 

The two haven’t always seen eye-to-eye, but that’s the thing about parents and kids — there’s always a level of love there no matter what happens.

Here’s When Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD Will Air Season Finales in 2021

Published

One Chicago promo ahead of November 11 premiere

It’s hard to believe that it’s almost finale time for the #OneChicago shows on NBC.

Due to production delays brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, Chicago Med, Chicago PD, and Chicago Fire got off to a late start in mid-November (instead of the usual mid-September premiere), but that pandemic hasn’t made a huge impact on the quality of the episodes. 

In fact, the shows have been delivering some of their strongest episodes to date! (You can check out Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD reviews now!)

However, with shorter seasons on tap, the schedule has been pretty wonky and consisted of several breaks in between, so we don’t blame you if you’re having trouble keeping up. That’s why we’re here to clue you in. 

New episodes of the trio of shows return on March 31, 2021. 

As for the finales, NBC hasn’t announced any official finale dates.

However, according to TVLine, the current seasons will wrap up on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, which would align with their pre-COVID finales even if the episode count is a bit shorter than in the year’s prior. 

Once NBC confirms to official finale date, we’ll update this post, but at least you can find comfort in knowing that we still have a solid several weeks with Chicago’s bravest and boldest!
