Casey meets his niece Violet at a café and discovers that she is experiencing trouble at school and at home. Shocked, Casey follows up with his sister Christie to see if he can help and she assures him that she can manage just fine, the family’s just going through a rough financial period. But her lack of specifics piques Casey’s curiosity and he visits Jim, Christie’s husband, at his firm downtown where Jim drops the big news – he and Christie are in the midst of a divorce. Except Casey suspects Jim of withholding more information when his secretary bounds in and acts a little too casual.
The lieutenant’s concern for his sister’s family boils over into 51 when he borrows Dawson for advice and leaves Herrmann with menial candidate duties. This causes resentment and an irate Herrmann mentions it to Boden – the two men clash in a difference of opinion and, as the chief, Boden wins out. Later, Herrmann’s frustration reaches a peak when he notices another mistake from Dawson – except she admits to making the mistake on purpose to test whether Herrmann and the squad would treat her like a normal candidate. After a big argument, Dawson requests to shadow Herrmann instead of Casey – and Herrmann agrees. It seems her true test is yet to come.
Meanwhile, Brett remains uncertain about whether she should rejoin Harrison and return to Indiana. After shift, she makes it back to her apartment only to find the door busted open… and her entire place in the midst of a robbery. Moreover, she discovers the thief is still there – her instincts kick in and she beats him out with a baseball bat. When Harrison hears about the break in, he offers to start packing for Indiana right away, assured that she lacks the ability to handle herself. But Brett sees it differently – she did handle it and she’s ready to stay in Chicago. With or without him.
Another person ready for a change is Joe Cruz, still serving his driving suspension. During an intense apartment fire, his quick thinking rescues a fire victim from a balcony and Boden commends his efforts. In fact, Boden asks Chief Tiberg to reinstate Cruz, but Tiberg rejects him without a second’s thought. But Boden believes Cruz deserves it and pushes the request up the chain of command. They eventually issue the reinstatement, yet it comes at a cost for the chief – he will not be considered for a promotion during the next round.
Unable to shake off the feeling that Jim might be hiding something, Casey approaches Officer Ruzek from Chicago P.D. and asks him to look into Jim. Ruzek comes back with troubling information not only is Jim seeing his secretary, he signed over the company’s assets to her as well, meaning that Christie won’t see a penny from his lucrative company in the divorce. Casey relays this to Christie, but rather than jump at the chance to even the score with Jim, Christie tells Casey she would rather settle the case and move on. Unsatisfied with Christie’s reaction, Casey surprises Jim and his secret girlfriend during dinner and demands that they look at his company’s books tomorrow morning. Jim attempts to cover, but Casey cuts him off this time, it’s Casey who means business. Well it gets very personal next week for Casey so don’t miss next week’s episode. Here’s a sneak peak.
Coffee Table News
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.

Check out the synopsis for Season 11 Episode 5: “Firehouse 51 hosts a Halloween open house; Kidd and Severide help a young girl after she gets kicked out of her home.”

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