Chicago Fire-Tonight’s The Night (2X13)

Published

on


With Matt Casey still recovering from his accident (Not Like This-2X10) it was only a matter of time before his world starts breaking down. In the previous episodes prior to this one its proof enough that he couldn’t handle the pressure of working and being around people because of his condition and if I might point out a social anxiety. When Severide’s sister shows up at the firehouse she tells him that her boss is opening up a restaurant in NYC. This would also mean that she would have to move out there. However she wanted to stay and get to know her family and the guy she’s been dating Otis which happens to be his co-worker. When Dawson returns she talks with her co-workers and bar mates Otis and Herrmann about getting an upgrade on the bar they work on the side, Molly’s. Unfortunately there hasn’t been a clear decision made also they gained a new business partner their other co-worker Shay. When the firehouse gets a call to the far west side they found an electrical line destroyed by a hit and run driver. Before they could get the guy out of the car the line was cut leaving a fraction of the west side in the dark.

With the guy and the woman retrieved and recovered along with the section of the city now out of power, Chief Bowden allows the residence to stay at Firehouse 51 for shelter and a place to sleep. When they get back they try to adjust the furnace to make the place a little warmer. When Casey and Severide go to fix it Casey is having a bit of memory troubles with the tools and such. Severide is a little concerned and asks if he talked to anyone about his condition. But before they could get anywhere the furnace is up. Talk about hiding your troubles. Boden’s eyes perk up when his girlfriend Donna arrives. She said that the power’s out in her building too. Of course this gives him ample oportuninty to be with her during this time. Once people started settling in a fight breaks out between two civilians in the kitchen. One of which points a knife at Severide and tells him that he is after the brother of the victim who put his sister in a coma. The instigator, a punk named Vince Keeler, snags a knife and points it at Severide, a move he regrets after Severide easily disarms him and tosses him into the snow.

After things ease up, Detective Lindsay (Chicago PD) makes a visit to inform Boden, Casey and Severide on a Vince Keeler. He was the guy that Severide was fighting earlier. He happens to have a serious reputation and is making noise about killing a fireman tonight after his fight with Severide humiliated him. Meanwhile, Cruz taking over chef duties sends Clarke on an errand for more food at a local corner store, but while he’s gathering supplies in the stockroom, a couple of looters enter the store and stab the owner. Clarke scares them off with a bat and improvises a way to stop the bleeding. When the house gets a call to an CO2 incident, Dawson decides to help out Shay and Rafferty. However one decision made by Dawson ruffled some feathers with Rafferty and later calls her out on the fact that everyone talks about Dawson thinking she has big shoes to fill. Well her time to prove herself comes when someone inside the firehouse passes out.

Later, an older woman’s heart attack at the station leads to another collision between the ladies, only this time Dawson lets Rafferty run point. Once they revive the woman, Dawson gives Rafferty the credit and passes the EMT torch…or something along that line. Back at the corner store the owner appeared to be stable, that is until the thieves return with friends all armed and ready to fight off Clarke. Luckily, a couple of CPD officers came in time and took them down.

With the chaos somewhat contained, Detective Lindsay returns with another update – word is, Keeler’s got an inside man with sights on murdering Severide inside the station. She circulates a photo of the suspect and a thorough search turns up nothing that is until Casey notices the man walking away with one of his wrenches. Casey confronts him, but not before he takes a hard punch as Detective Lindsay draws her gun and detains him. When the power goes back up everyone heads for their homes. While Otis and Katie sneak off into the showers to make out, Boden and Shay stumble upon them…that sucks. Otis later seeks out Boden for an apology, except Otis finds the chief preoccupied in his office, ha revenge! At least Otis knows Boden won’t retaliate…I think.

The episode ends with Katie chats with Otis on the phone on her way to her apartment to meet up with him when she’s interrupted. Two guys put A sack over her head muffles her scream and before anyone can notice, she’s yanked off the sidewalk and tossed into a van.

Chicago Fire Review: A Malfunctioning Case (9×03)

Chicago Fire Smash Therapy Review

It’s been quite a while since we last saw our favorite firefighters take on the streets of Chicago, and they came back in full swing. Quick recap: Boden wants Kidd to be a lieutenant, Casey and Sylvie made out and then Casey let it slip that he’s still in love with his ex-wife. After nearly two months off, it’s time to get back into action.

The episode begins with Kidd and Severide arriving to work, with Severide assuring his girlfriend that he’s going to help her study for the lieutenant’s test that Boden recommended she take. As they arrive inside, Chief Boden is showing Kidd’s protégé, Kylie, arriving for her first day as Boden’s new assistant.

As Casey and Sylvie begin to have a talk about their little hook-up at the end of the last episode, the bells ring, and Firehouse 51 jumps into action. As they arrive to a warehouse that’s on fire, Kidd notices that there are people on the roof that need help, and Mouch, being the great ladder operator, hops on and steers it up. As Casey begins to climb it up to the roof, Mouch notices that the ladder isn’t secure, and Casey is flung over the side. Firehouse candidate Gallo runs up, and safely pulls him up. Mouch, ashamed of a possible malfunction, watches on as they continue to help. Inside the warehouse, Severide saves a man, who demands that they go back in to save a car, which he refuses, and Casey berates Mouch for almost severely injuring him.

At the Firehouse, Kylie gets her new boss a standing desk, which will offer the C plot of the episode.

Stella attends her first meeting for the lieutenant’s test, and Kidd meets the people who are also involved with the test, who are all impressed that she’s there.

Mouch takes the rig out so that he can look at the mechanics of the ladder, and slowly starts to become obsessed with figuring out what went wrong during that warehouse fire.

While looking at the report for the fire, Casey doesn’t think that Mouch should get any extra punishment for the ladder mishap. Severide sees the man he saved in the warehouse, named Ken, and Ken tells him that he wants to get back into his warehouse as soon as possible, leading to the concerned looks from Severide. He brings it to the headquarters, who assign him to investigate the warehouse for any clues. As he leaves, Severide sees the chief who’s in charge of the lieutenant’s test, Conway, and he says a good little biased sentence about how Kidd’s ability doesn’t matter compared to how it would look for a woman to be a lieutenant. He also says that just because she’s dating Severide, that’ll be even easier to slide through the ranks, which infuriates Severide to no other.

Gianna and Sylvie talk boys, and Sylvie brushes off any possibility that her and Casey have any sorts of relationship, and inside the Firehouse, Mouch’s obsession with the ladder malfunction continues with him scanning the handbook. Herrmann, nervous about his friend, goes to a nearby firehouse, and asks one of their crew about a similar situation where a ladder operator messed up and almost hurt someone. The crew member replied that the person in question was so far into his career, he was “going through the motions,” and he was sent to a desk job.

With incredible enthusiasm, Kidd tells Severide that she’s excited to get studying for the test, and he can’t bring himself to tell his girlfriend the horrible remarks that Chief Conway said. Meanwhile Boden tries to break his new standing desk so he can go back to sitting, but Kylie sees through the ruse and fixes it.

Now the part we were all waiting for, Sylvie and Casey have their renewed talk about their feelings. Casey said that his feelings for her are real “regardless of Gabby,” which hurts Sylvie, because there “shouldn’t be a ‘regardless.'” She tells him that that can’t happen again, because she needs to be on her own. Thus breaks the hearts of all of us fans that were shipping them.

Sylvie and Gianna get sent out on a call of a woman who was hit in the face with a drone, and the blades of the drone cut a piece of her nose off (insert some gross and oddly impressive special effects makeup). Gianna finds the piece of the nose, and they assure her that it can be reattached. The person controlling the drone tries to take the drone away, but Gianna knocks it out of the sky with a rake, and they decide to completely destroy it for Sylvie’s smash therapy (hey, that’s the episode title!)

Severide and Ken head to his warehouse, where they find the car that Ken wanted saving still in pretty good condition, so there was nothing too suspicious going on.

Herrmann, Gallo, and Kylie find some of the paperwork involved with the previous incident like Mouch’s, and Herrmann tells Kylie that she needs to be tougher than Boden if she is to keep the job, since Boden goes through a lot of assistants (except for Connie, who was a series favorite before her departure).

While sharing cigars, Casey tells Severide about him and Sylvie, and he says he’s gonna pull back on his feelings for her, for the sake of her, which hits home for Severide, since he is in a sticky situation with Kidd.

Kylie catches Boden trying to sit at his standing desk, and Kylie tells him that he can be strict, because she wants to be tough, and she wants to learn from him.

Herrmann finds out through his searching and that the manufacturer of the ladder system was supposed to have product recalls, and it never went through, and informs Mouch and Casey that Mouch did nothing wrong.

At the usual end of episode Molly’s scene, Sylvie and Kidd discuss Casey and Severide. Kidd notices the weird behavior that she’s been seeing in her boyfriend and will most likely confront him about it. Severide is then shown helping his new buddy Ken fix up the car. Ken even gives him permission to take it on its first test drive. Severide purposely ignores a call from his girlfriend, and he drives off into the night.

The episode was a nice return to Fire‘s roots. Fighting fires, with a fair amount of share between all the side plots. It was also nice to see Chief Boden attempt to work at a standing desk when he clearly wanted to be sitting. The humanity of Casey being so forgiving to Mouch for the ladder mishap was great to see, especially when Casey can be so cold during the job.

Chicago Fire is taking a two week break before returning. What did you think of tonight’s return to the show? Leave a comment below.

Chicago Fire Review – Sparks Fly (9×02)

Chicago Fire That Kind of Heat Review

After last week’s horrific cliffhanger in the premiere, Chicago Fire’s second episode hit the ground running to resolve the action. Sylvie and new paramedic Gianna were run off the highway by an angry Halleck, who was after them after his brother overdosed.

Gianna took most of the hit, and Sylvie seemed relatively unscathed. Casey and the rest of the team found their location and managed to get them both out. Knowing that Halleck also crashed (and with a gun), they did their best to navigate the car that’s on fire. Halleck, impaled with shrapnel, begged for help, and pulled himself out, causing him to bleed everywhere (with an extremely gross sound effect). The car is put out, and Halleck is taken to Med, while Gianna is treated with nothing more than a bandage on the head from a scrape. With a fall that nasty, it was pretty impeccable that it was really only a couple of scratches, but hey, gotta keep the main characters active, right?

Back at the Firehouse, Cruz gets oddly protective when he sees Gianna’s bandage, which seems odd, but given they’re lifelong friends, the writers probably wanted to establish that relationship better. Casey goes up to Sylvie and says how grateful he is that she’s okay, and Sylvie lets it slip saying, “it’s always been you!” She covers up her feelings for him by saying that she meant that by his friendship, which Casey turns a blind eye to. Casey is so dumb sometimes when it comes to relationships so this is nothing new. Sylvie reveals what happened to Kidd, and Kidd lets her know that maybe it isn’t so bad that she let her feelings out because it’s about time he knows.

An upset Chief Boden is struggling with some of the paperwork that he has to take care of since the secretary staff can’t work in the office because of COVID, so Ritter volunteers himself and Gallo to take care of the paperwork, much to the dismay of Gallo. Because of this, everyone has accepted that these two hooligans will be taking care of all logistic work in the firehouse.

After the shift is over, Casey awkwardly asks Herrmann and Mouch if they were going to Molly’s (you know, the bar that they own), but it was clear that he was figuring out if Sylvie was going. Herrmann and Mouch then try to give advice to Ritter about not always helping out the chief if he genuinely doesn’t want to do it.

At Kidd’s Girls on Fire program, they are running drills, and a happy Chief Boden watches on, acknowledging that she is inspiring the future of the CFD. Kidd then tells him that one of her top students, Kylie, hasn’t been at any of the sessions for weeks, and Boden thinks it might be best to investigate.

Cruz finds Gianna working out, and they discuss how Gianna’s adapting to being at Firehouse 51. Cruz encourages her to stick around at 51, but she has second thoughts because of the crash. Cruz lets her know that her brother would be proud of her.

Kidd finds her star pupil Kylie at her job and wants her to come back. However, she tells her that her parents need a lot of help and support since things have shut down (always have to have some sort of look into the real-life situation).

Severide heads to the car yard that has Ambulance 61, but the front gate doesn’t let him in because he doesn’t have proper authorization. Severide drives around the back and hops the fence anyway.

At Molly’s Cruz tells Sylvie that he gave the “hard sell” to Gianna, but isn’t sure if she’ll stick around. Sylvie joins Casey, Gallo, and Capp on the back patio, and Gallo is telling the story of how they rescued the ambulance from its destruction. All the while, Casey and Sylvie stare at each other flirtatiously, and a nervous Sylvie makes up an excuse to leave.

The next day, Sylvie and Cruz discover that Gianna decided to stay at 51 and work with her. Makes sense, why hire a new actress for two episodes? Severide arrives with the door to Ambulance 61, which has the name of the late Leslie Shay on it, and they replace the door on the new ambo. Gianna notices her name, and Severide and Casey share a moment of remembering her, and how soon more people who didn’t know her are soon going to outnumber the people who did.

While out on a ride, Ritter sees a group of kids on a subway track yelling for the truck to stop. He jumps out of the truck and runs to the subway, and the kids tell him that a woman fell onto the tracks and hit her head, and of course, a train is arriving at the station. As it always is, Ritter hands the woman off to Herrmann, and barely escapes himself as the train arrives.

Kidd, after seeing a frustrated Gallo working on paperwork, suggests to Boden that maybe Kylie take over the job and become Boden’s part-time assistant, which she accepts with a long hug.

At Molly’s, Mouch gives Ritter an inspirational talk that his hard work and dedication to wanting to take over a lot of the clerical work at the firehouse is a sign of a true and loyal firefighter, and he gives him back a pen Ritter’s father gave him when he joined the squad.

Casey shows up at Sylvie’s house unannounced, and she admits that she’s been avoiding him, and the next thing we know, she plants a large kiss right on him! Something that the show has been teasing for at least two seasons. The scene starts to get ~very steamy~ but Sylvie brings up the fact that if Casey’s ex-wife Gabby were to come back and want him back if he would go with her. Casey says he doesn’t know, since the relationship ended pretty poorly. Naturally, this breaks Sylvie apart and she kicks him out before anything else can happen. A teary Sylvie sits alone as the episode comes to a close.

After a pretty good episode all around, it brings the show to a close for now as Fire will return in January. Hopefully, there will be more great firefighting sequences, and drama that will continue to entertain.

What did you think of the show’s last episode of the year?
