Chicago Fire: Sparticus (3X23)

Published

on

If this episode didn’t have your heart beating in every minute of the run time…there’s something very wrong with you.

When we last left Casey, he was being searched by Nesbitt’s team when they checked his phone for any wire tap. Turns out Casey was clean. It was revealed that he tossed the wire in the bathroom before the men frisked him. Either way, when he meets up with Voight and Dawson in the surveillance van, he informs them that Nesbitt and his associates didn’t discuss anything of value.

Back at 51, Rice apologizes for how he reacted to Severide’s question on ducking the call. Yet things between the Squad and Truck have not died down especially during a call to a gas leak. It was the decisions from both sides that divided the team even further. Chief Boden even asked if the entire firehouse can function properly. Severide gets to the bottom of this by asking the equipment specialist if Rice ever brought his equipment. Turns out he never took any equipment to the shop. In Boden’s office, Severide calls in Rice and removes his friend from Squad. Rice finally confesses to ducking calls in an effort to remain safe for his family, but the excuse fails to impress Boden or Severide. With Rice now off the team Boden announces that Cruz will assume his spot on Squad and Otis will drive the truck…Finally.

Just as thing got a bit confusing with the change in sides, a call sends them out to a fire in progress with a handful of fellow firefighters and civilians trapped inside. Severide and Dawson both rush to save the victims, but soon find themselves trapped and with only one working oxygen mask. Boden demands that the rest of the team remain outside while he goes in for Dawson and Severide. Chief orders a fall back on the search. Cruz, certain that they should wait longer, threatens the chief with physical harm unless he stands down the order. Other firefighters pull him away, and the squads spray water onto the building, ending any hope for those inside. But moments later Cruz is vindicated when Boden, Severide and Dawson get out alive and unharmed. 

Chief Tiberg awaits 51’s return from the fire and asks to know the name of the culprit who threatened the other station chief with violence. But before Cruz can confess, Otis steps forward. And then Severide. And Mouch. Soon the whole team, both Squad and Truck, confesses to threatening the chief. Tiberg exits without a name and Boden suggests he stop asking. Regardless, this moment reunites the firehouse, and the whole gang heads to Molly’s to celebrate. They’re joined by Roman from P.D. who takes a liking to Brett… and at the end of the night the two wind up at Roman’s apartment.

Still concerned about the situation at Stilletos, Casey comes clean to Boden about his undercover assignment with Chicago P.D.’s Intelligence unit and requests to take off his next shift. Voight and Antonio provide support for his cause, explaining how Stilletos acts as a criminal front… but the discussion occurs in plain sight, where a spying Nesbitt sees the whole thing. The next time Casey visits the club, Nesbitt suggests Casey’s collusion with the police, and the lieutenant denies any association. Nesbitt plays dumb despite the lies and asks Casey to meet him later that night.

Meanwhile, Chili receives the prototype for Chileeze and it sparks a great idea from Herrmann – they need a celebrity spokesperson. This leads them to a hotel lobby, and with a great assist from Otis, they trap Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen in the elevator. Chili gives him the Chileeze pitch and Pippen agrees to participate. Everything appears to line up for an awesome business venture, until Herrmann and Chili make a devastating discovery that another competitor beat them to the punch. Well, it’s back to the drawing board. 

The end of Dawson’s night takes a different spin. Feeling sick to her stomach all day, Dawson leaves her shift at Molly’s early and winds up in the bathroom with a pregnancy test in her hand. She stares at the results and rushes to Casey’s apartment… where she finds the door already open. Dawson enters and calls out his name, but no one responds. As she walks through the apartment, she notices signs of some kind of struggle, and soon finds the likely result – a woman on the floor, unmoving, next to a rug soaked in her blood. It’s Katya from Stilletos found dead at his apartment. Now the dying question we have this summer…where’s Casey?

What happened to him and what will become of Dawson now that she’s carrying his baby? What will happen to the new Firehouse 51 with switch ups and changes all over? All these questions when Chicago Fire returns for Season 4 this fall!

‘Chicago Fire,’ ‘Chicago P.D’ and ‘Chicago Med’ Renewed, ‘Chicago Justice’ On the Fence

Chicago PD renewed

NBC said yes to Chicago, specifically three major Chicago shows.

Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D and Chicago Med will all be returning for the 2017-18 season.

No decision has been made about the fourth and most recent addition to the franchise, Chicago Justice.

It isn’t surprising considering that out of the shows, Justice seems to have the lowest draw, starting out slow when it premiered in March during a three-show crossover.

Also not yet renewed is Wolf’s Law & Order: SVU, despite being the second-highest-rated drama on the network with over 10 million viewers weekly.

P.D is another top performer while Med’s ratings are solid, even after a move to Thursday night.

If Justice and SVU get the boot, Wolf won’t be too concerned as he’s adding yet another drama this year – Law & Order: True Crime — The Menendez Murders.

Dick Wolf. Unstoppable.

Chicago Fire – Deathtrap (5×15)

Published

Chicago Fire Deathtrap

Welcome to part one of the #OneChicago 3 hour, 4 show crossover event. There was a lot of Chicago on television tonight!

Things kicked off with Dick Wolf’s first series, Chicago Fire. The firefighters were responding to a fire at a warehouse in the city with multiple teens inside. Despite their best efforts, Chief Bowden had to pull his men from the fire because it was too big of a risk.

That’s when Olinsky from Chicago PD’s Intelligence Unit ran up frantically exclaiming that his daughter Lexi was inside. Last we saw Lexi, Olinsky called her into the precinct not to ask her to move back in, but to tell her he loved her after dealing with a case where parents lost their young girl. Now he was being faced with that same fate.

Bowden did his friend the favor and went back inside to try to find Lexi. When they brought her to Med, Halstead declared more than 60% of her body had been burned. Her chances of making it were slim but he promised to do everything in his power to save her life.

As the death toll kept rising – we left off at 38 – Bowden and his team were determined to find out the cause of the fire. That’s when they brought in Intelligence and a special unit, who found that it wasn’t an accident, it was actually caused by a lightbulb and some cat litter. Seriously – something so simple you can find online killed so many innocent children.

They initially looked at the owner of the warehouse – a man who claimed to offer kids with little to no money a safe place to stay. When he was further questioned, he shot himself in the bathroom stall at the fire house. Not the best way to end a horrible day.

At that point, the investigation is turned over to Intelligence and knowing that Lexi was a victim propels them to work even harder to find the suspect.

It’s a devastating blow and the whole city comes together to get some justice…. the perfect lead in to Chicago Justice’s very first episode. (But that’s for later.)

Other Important Moments

  • Severide calls Anna to tell her misses her after a brutal night. She shows up at the firehouse to tell him she accepted a job as a pediatric at Med and he couldn’t be happier. Looks like we’ll be seeing a lot more of her in future episodes.
  • Mouch is injured in the fire when a balcony falls on him when he’s trying to save the victims. His heroism shines through as he tells the staff at Med to let him be and focus efforts on those who need help. He then helps a woman cope with the trauma of the fire and knowing she may have hurt someone in order to save herself. Deep.
