On tonight’s explosive new episode of Chicago Fire, a pet food factory fire sets Casey and Severide on an investigation, Kidd takes the lieutenants test, and Firehouse 51 prepares for a garage sale.
While Kidd takes the test, the crew is sent out on a call of a pet food factory that’s on fire. Severide attempts to rescue the owner, Pete, first, but he insists he save his wife instead.
The wife is rescued in a valiant effort from Gallo, who climbs up the building by himself using a ladder and hoisting it up.
Upon their return to the firehouse, some of the burns on the equipment look like chemical burns, setting the team to investigate the case of the week: what chemicals are in that factory? Upon investigation from hazmat, there was nothing conclusive that said there were dangerous chemicals inside. With Pete’s help, they conclude that people have been dumping waste and trash near the factory because the city won’t work to clean up the area. As a result, a barrel of sulfuric acid is what caused the fire and the burns on the firehouse equipment.
Turns out, an organic food company was using sulfuric acid to make fertilizer, then illegally dumping it so they didn’t have to pay any fees. Naturally, the driver who dumped it fled. However, Severide and Casey found the barrels in the organic food company allowing them to make the arrest.
It’s Ritter and Gallo’s first CFD garage sale, and Mouch, Herrmann, and Capp show them the ropes of pricing things and appropriately selling them. As pointless as it was, I found it quite hilarious that Ritter was swindled by an old lady to lower the price of a speaker. The biggest mistake happened when Mouch accidentally sold Sylvie’s cat, but it left Sylvie incredibly happy since she never liked the cat but didn’t necessarily want to get rid of it.
On this week’s edition of “ew, that’s insanely gross,” Sylvie and Violet helped rescue a dentist’s patient whose teeth mold quite literally glued his mouth shut.
Boden informed Kidd that she passed the lieutenants test, and Severide confided in Casey that he was thinking of proposing to his now-lieutenant girlfriend! It would be great to see the two of them finally tie the knot after being together for so long.
My biggest problem with tonight’s episode? Not enough time spent on Kidd. This whole season has built up for a powerful woman of color to climb the ranks of the Chicago Fire Department, but the storyline was put to the side for the case of the week.
Casey and Severide have been solving cases like these for the past nine seasons, I think they could’ve taken a break so that we could see this moment happen for Kidd. Even the plot about Sylvie’s cat had more screen time than anything regarding Kidd and her test results.
I think it was a waste of a tease to barely have Kidd in the episode at all, and even when she was around, she was just sitting around waiting for the results until the end. What’s the point of having her study, prepare, and build her character if they weren’t going to even utilize her when it mattered the most? She’s a fantastic character, arguably one of the best in the show, and it just seemed that her talents weren’t properly used.

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.
