Chicago Fire: Three Bells (3X13) #ONECHICAGO Pt. 1



This has been an event in the making with the death of Leslie Shay. The episode begins with Severide and Dawson taking their evidence from the fire scene to Captain Cunningham in Arson, but the really big break comes when Severide receives a surprise call from Hadley, the arsonist he helped throw in jail. The severely burned inmate offers information on Shay’s murder in exchange for a new mattress better suited for someone in his condition with chronic pain. Severide only agrees after Hadley provides him with an anonymous letter he received that trumpets the Shay tragedy as purposeful.

The letter’s return address points to a vacant lot, which seems like a dead end until Boden reveals that the address is the location of the fire that killed Mills’ dad 20 years ago. It seems the cases are connected and span almost a few decades. With this new evidence Severide informs Cunningham and comes to the conclusion that they are dealing with a serial arsonist.

At Firehouse 51, Shay’s sister, Megan, arrives to seek closure for Shay’s death. She gets a first hand account of life inside 51 and the impact Shay made on the firehouse thanks to Dawson and Brett They even let her stay with them while she is in town and shared some great memories of Shay along the way. But it wasn’t till Brett invites Megan to shadow her during a call and she witnesses a typically intense encounter with a knife-wielding guy in an apartment courtyard and later tears up thinking of Shay and her line of work.

But a heartwarming moment came in the form of a dedication ceremony in honor of Shay. All the firefighters and paramedics choke back tears during speeches by Boden and Dawson, and few dry eyes remain after the unveiling of Shay’s name permanently engraved on the ambulance.

Later, Cunningham brings in the owner of the storage unit business and shows him mug shots of possible arson suspects. One person seemed familiar to him: Adrian Gish, a suspect with a history of being accused of arson but cleared every time due to lack of evidence. Severide joins Cunningham to ambush Gish at his work, except he ambushes them first and leaves a creepy impression that nearly goads Severide into fisticuffs. This scene was so creepy I was hiding under the blanket.

Meanwhile for Cruz and Otis they get the surprise of a lifetime when Otis allowed his Russian mother, Baba, to move into their apartment without any discussion. The timing conflicts with Cruz and Brett’s three month dating anniversary and, sure enough, when he invites Brett over for a little private time, Baba interrupts and ruins the romance. Party foul there Otis, major party foul.

For another couple Dawson and Casey, after a structure fire and intense rescue by Casey spurs a chat between the two of them. After talking honestly about the awkwardness of working together while still harboring feelings, they resolve to put their relationship on pause as opposed to ending it altogether.

At Molly’s, Cunningham interrupts the celebration to announce that the Arson Department will not pursue Gish – no direct evidence links him to either fire. She stresses that the case will stay open, but no official action will be taken. Livid, Dawson marches out of the bar and speed dials her brother Antonio. If Cunningham can’t handle the case, Chicago P.D. will.

Part 2 of #ONECHICAGO continues tonight with Chicago P.D.

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.
