Chicago Fire Review: Show of Force (10×12)

Chicago Fire/ NBC



The investigation into Pelham’s case continued in tonight’s new episode, and Stella got a shot at the spotlight in tonight’s latest episode of Chicago Fire.

With Pelham on temporary suspension while they investigate what happened at the electrical fire, Stella is the acting lieutenant on Truck 81. Her leadership was put to the test while rescuing people who were trapped in a mall escalator, and her natural leadership saved everyone involved. All the while, a proud Chief Boden watched from a distance.

Boden proceeded with the accusation that Deputy District Chief Killborn is behind the allegations against Pelham, which started off with little to no traction, due to the lack of respect of Pelham in the Department. Stella suggested getting Stafford, the firefighter who Pelham took the fall for, testify to clear Pelham. Boden spoke with Stafford, and pleaded with him to do something for Pelham, since he owes him.

Stella sat Mouch and Gallo down and gave quite the inspiration speech about storming the CFD headquarters and confronting Deputy Commissioner Hill about reinstating Pelham. It showcased her talents as a leader, and how she should be ready to take on any leadership thrown her way. The three went to the office and threw down their uniforms as a threat to talk to the Commissioner.

After speaking with Stella and Stafford, Hill and Stella went to see Sarah, the firefighter who accused Pelham, and encouraged her to show her strength in this department. At the Chicago Fire Department Gala, Hill revealed that Sarah recanted her statement, and that she was coerced by Killborn to make that accusation, and Killborn was put on administrative leave.

Due to COVID (because, you know, that’s still around), the annual Fire Department Gala was for officers only, causing the rest of Firehouse 51 to throw their own gala for those who can’t attend. However, Ritter, Gallo, and Violet tried to throw a second party for only the young firefighters so that they can have more freedom to go crazy. The first party was, well, surprisingly good. The band that Capp is a part of (with a bunch of teenagers, making him stick out like a sore thumb) rocked the house down in a weird turn of events.

Herrmann taught some classes at the Fire Academy, and met Todd, the brother of a firefighter who died in action who Herrmann knew. Todd is not a firefighter, but sits in the memorial hallway where his brother’s badge is hung, to spend some time with him. The emotions got the better of Herrmann, as he came home to see two of his sons fighting, and he yelled at them, wanting them to be grateful to have their siblings around. Herrmann’s kids went with him to the Fire Academy to go speak with Todd, where he showed them pictures and told them stories.

Severide re-proposed to Stella, declaring himself to be the luckiest man in Chicago, as they continued to rebuild their relationship. Stella even got to let Pelham know that he is back in the lieutenant’s chair, and it’s his time to come back.

We even got a small cliffhanger, as Violet and Chief Hawkins shared a kiss at the gala.

My complaint of this week remains the same as it was last week’s, which is the unnecessary C plot, which in this case, was with Herrmann. He has been such a great constant of morality in the whole series, but I just didn’t care enough about this whole thing with Todd, and his kids.

At first, I didn’t care for the gala plot, but it did end up being quite relevant to close the Killborn story, and begin the new one that is to come with Violet and Hawkins.

Law & Order franchises will have their moment on Thursday, Jan 18 with Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Organized Crime.

Part 1 of The Voice returns on Feb. 26, along with BC’s new Deal or No Deal spinoff, Deal or No Deal Island.

When Will ‘Chicago Fire’ Return? Here’s When Season 12 Kicks Off Filming



Fans have been patiently waiting for the 12th season of Chicago Fire, which was announced back in April by NBC. 

The network renewed all three of the One Chicago shows at the time, including Chicago PD for season 11 and Chicago Med for season 9. 

Typically, new seasons of the dramas would’ve started in September as part of the network’s fall lineup, however, production on the shows was significantly delayed due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. The writers’ strike ended a bit before the actors’ strike, which meant that the writing staff was able to get back to work penning the scripts in October, however, things remained at a standstill until the SAG-AFTRA union negotiated a promising contract with the studios and allowed actors to get back to making shows and movies. 

Thankfully, with the strikes officially over, the shows are back in business. 

According to a Chicago Fire Extras post on Facebook, the drama set at Firehouse 51 will be kicking off filming on Monday, Nov. 27! 


And that means that we’re on track to get new episodes of the 12th season in 2024 as a premiere date has been announced as Wednesday, January 17.

With Chicago Fire back in business, it’s safe to say the sister shows are following suit—and we’ll have new episodes to watch sooner rather than later. 

CBS already unveiled its lineup for regularly scheduled programming, beating out all the other networks to the announcement, but if theirs is anything to go by, new content will be landing as soon as February. Some of your favorite sitcoms and dramas on CBS, including the NCIS franchise, Ghosts, and the FBI shows, will all be kicking off after the Super Bowl.

And the good news is that Taylor Kinney’s Kelly Severide is making a comeback after a ten-month hiatus. Back in January, the actor announced a personal leave of absence from the series, but fans are surely eager to see him back on the firefighter drama once again!
