Dawson stresses about her upcoming firefighter’s exam, and with good reason – if she passes, Boden cannot keep her at 51. She learns about an opening at a firehouse in a neighborhood outside town, headed by the unflappable Tommy Welch. When Dawson and Shay drive over for an introduction, they receive a cold reception and Welch makes it clear that no one on the squad wants a female firefighter.
Another unwanted female makes a surprise appearance at 51 looking for Shay – her ex-girlfriend Devon who stole from her as well as Severide and Otis earlier in the season. Shay demands Devon return everything she stole, but softens just enough to agree to a meeting. Her ex hands over Otis’ “Battlestar Galactica” helmet and a small sum of money, all accompanied by a story involving her father’s spat in jail. Shay relays the story and the money to Severide – and he rejects both, accusing Shay of letting Devon walk all over her.
The rest of the station welcomes Clarke’s replacement, Rick Newhouse, a likeable fireman who seamlessly integrates himself into both the big calls that day – a wood chipper debacle and a scary dock rescue that requires him to assist Severide underwater. But it’s not Newhouse’s rescuing skills that pique the squad’s interest – it’s his side job as a “skip tracer,” aka a guy who finds people.
Meanwhile, Casey wants to find the best time and location to propose to Dawson, but Shay keeps shutting down his suggestions. More importantly, however, Casey needs to ask Dawson’s family for their approval and they’re all out of town – except Antonio. He tracks down the detective and requests his blessing. Antonio agrees – and the two hug, now potential brothers.
Boden and Donna meet up to discuss their potential next moves now that she’s pregnant. Their conversation remains awkward and, after some time to think, Boden corners her after school and blurts out a marriage proposal as their most sensible course of action. To Boden’s surprise, Donna turns him down. Still reeling, Boden confides in Mills over a cigar at the station and Mills advises him to take a new approach – be more vulnerable. Boden takes the advice to heart and, in his dress blues, blindsides Donna at the schoolhouse. This time he proposes on bended knee – in front of all her students – and Donna reconsiders. They kiss and twirl to the delight of her class – the chief’s getting married!
Back at the station, a call sends Dawson and Shay to a pregnant woman suffering though an awful labor – the baby is not waiting for anyone. The EMTs keep the woman calm and ready for a delivery on the apartment stairs, but as they proceed, it becomes clear – Dawson might not make it to her exam. Seconds after the baby arrives, Mills rushes over to relieve her. The squad races her to the exam – and the instructor wastes no time in starting his stopwatch as Dawson starts the test, focused and ready…
NBC Gives Three Season Renewal to One Chicago Shows ‘Chicago PD,’ ‘Chicago Fire,’ and ‘Chicago Med’
And that’s what we call a triple sweep!
Your favorite ER docs, firefighters, and detectives aren’t going anywhere anytime soon because NBC just gave the #OneChicago universe a massive pick-up.
All three series in Dick Wolf’s “Chicago” franchise will be returning for an additional three more seasons.
According to Deadline, the renewals are part of a new deal between Wolf and Universal Studios.
“Dick Wolf has proven time and time again that he makes shows audiences love,” said Paul Telegdy, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “We are delighted, excited and proud that as part of this epic deal with Wolf Entertainment, NBC’s loyal audience will know that their favorite shows have a certain future for the next three years.”
His other highly-rated and highly-performing drama, Law & Order SVU, also snagged three more seasons.
While nabbing three seasons at one time is surely a feat to be proud of, it isn’t unheard of at NBC, a network that loves to reward shows that simultaneously perform well live, in DVR viewing, and can also be syndicated. And if they have large, dedicated followings — which all 4 Wolf shows do — it only works in their favor.
The shows join the previously renewed medical drama New Amsterdam and the emotional family drama This Is Us, which was scored a three-season renewal.
Following the exciting news, the shows will have to renegotiate contracts with talent. Since three-years is a pretty massive chunk of time, it’s possible that not all of your favorites will stick around for the full-term.
Wolf has found success in both keeping his lead around for the entire duration of a series like Mariska Hargitay on Law & Order: SVU or swapping out the full cast entirely to offer a different perspective and reinvent the wheel. Either way, it’s bound to be successful and lucrative.
Are you excited about the renewals?

The First ‘Chicago Fire’ and ‘Chicago PD’ Crossover of 2020 Is Coming – Watch the Promo
Fans of Chicago PD, Chicago Med, and Chicago Fire will have to wait an additional week for new episodes.
The One Chicago universe is taking a break this Wednesday (February 19) as it gears up for the first crossover of 2020.
The two-part crossover excludes Chicago Med, though the series will kick off the hour with an intense episode of its own, and instead, finds PD and Fire teaming up to respond to a national epidemic.
It even brings back a beloved PD character, although, it’s not in a way that you’d expect and might not be all that great for Roman (guest star Brian Geraghty).
Here’s what to expect from the crossover airing Wednesday, February 26!
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.
But aside from dosing out justice and catching bad guys, Upton’s had a pretty tough season; she’s dealt with personal childhood trauma, falling hard for a co-worker, and getting abducted.
When we spoke to Spiridakos, she not only dished about the upcoming crossover, but also elaborated more about the brewing love triangle, the state of her relationship with Burgess, and even gave us some insight about Upton’s unique relationship with Halstead.
She also addressed the #Burzek fandom who have shown a bit of animosity towards her character.
And most importantly, she told us about her love for deep dish pizza.
Check out the interview below — you won’t regret it.
We have to address Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 14. Upton and Burgess were abducted, and it was one of a few times where the two ladies shared a really powerful scene together. Tell me about that. How did that feel?
It was great. We got to do some stuff in Season 5, the one where we’re PIs both of us approached, but this one was especially intense due to not only being abducted but also Burgess finding out about Ruzek at the beginning of the episode and the tension that came with that.
But I really like how at the end, they’re bonded beyond anything they’ve ever been and they’re stronger together which is really cool!
Yeah, I love how Burgess and Upton handled their “guy drama.” Rarely do shows allow two grown women to handle something in such a mature fashion. Why was that so important for Chicago PD and specifically, for these two characters?
I think it’s important to just show exactly what you just said that two women can have a conversation about something that’s going on like that and can walk away from that and just be like “things happen, and I understand where you’re coming from and thanks for talking to me about it and we’re good.”
After what they went through as characters in being abducted and not knowing when Burgess walks in and sees Upton tied up and bleeding and not knowing what happened to her and if she was going to survive or what was going on, I think you get sort of stronger bonded going through something like that.
