Chicago Fire: When Things Got Rough (2X17)

Published

on


If this episode doesn’t make you cry then my bad..I’ll admit it was a tear jerker. Here’s a breakdown of Tuesday’s episode.

A house fire sends the squad to a walk-up engulfed in flames and a family trapped inside. Once the firefighters work their way through, they make a startling discovery – a father lays over his wife and children, acting as a human shield from the fire. An impassioned rescue follows, but it’s too late for the father; Dawson declares him dead outside. The squad mourns his heroic sacrifice.

Back at the station, Mouch relays some tough news – his Japanese girlfriend officially dumped him. Casey encourages him to “rally,” which Mouch interprets as asking Shay for some dating advice. Shay returns to him with a dating site called Golden Oldeez. Mouch scoffs at the very suggestion, but later he admits some of the women on the site might be matches. Maybe he is ready to rally.

Ramsey, the guy from Main Dispatch who surprised Dawson at Molly’s last week, continues to creep her out by imposing a more personal attitude to their professional relationship, even calling her on her private cell phone. Dawson, fearful he’s stalking her, files a report against Ramsey; but he denies any wrongdoing, and soon enough Boden warns her – without proof of a threat, she should back off. But Ramsey loses his job anyway and later startles Dawson outside the station. He tells her the true reason behind his behavior – she reminds him of a friend who passed away. Ramsey produces a photo, and Dawson notices a real resemblance.

Another call places Severide at a car wreck involving a man who saved a woman from surefire injury. Severide manages to free the man’s arm from a car tire, and he learns the guy is a former firefighter (now on disability) named Bloom. Bloom’s heroics inspire Severide to visit him on multiple occasions and invite him to 51, but eventually Bloom grows tired of the repeated interruptions – he wants nothing to do with the lieutenant’s pet improvement project.

More shocking, however, is what Boden announces to the group near the end of shift – the widow of the man who died in the house fire has charged CFD with wrongful death. The squad reports to a hearing on the case, and with the widow present, Casey describes every detail, struggling to maintain his composure while recalling the courageous event. Once finished, the widow grieves openly and later drops the charges.

At Molly’s, Dawson’s guilt over costing Ramsey his job leads her to asks Jones – and, in turn, her father – for help. Jones agrees and comments on how nice her dad’s been lately… which leads Dawson to level with the candidate and tell her the truth about his intentions. Devastated, Jones storms away.

Chicago Fire

Unbeknownst to Jones or Dawson, Casey and Boden bond over the intense day and make a big decision – they will not seek to disqualify Jones. But now that she knows, was the damage already done? Well, you’ll have to find out tonight. Here’s a sneak peak!

NBC Gives Three Season Renewal to One Chicago Shows ‘Chicago PD,’ ‘Chicago Fire,’ and ‘Chicago Med’

Published

Chicago PD, Chicago Med, Chicago Fire renewed for three seasons

And that’s what we call a triple sweep!

Your favorite ER docs, firefighters, and detectives aren’t going anywhere anytime soon because NBC just gave the #OneChicago universe a massive pick-up.

All three series in Dick Wolf’s “Chicago” franchise will be returning for an additional three more seasons.

That brings Chicago Fire through season 11, Chicago PD through season 10, and Chicago Med through season 8.

According to Deadline, the renewals are part of a new deal between Wolf and Universal Studios.

“Dick Wolf has proven time and time again that he makes shows audiences love,” said Paul Telegdy, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “We are delighted, excited and proud that as part of this epic deal with Wolf Entertainment, NBC’s loyal audience will know that their favorite shows have a certain future for the next three years.”

His other highly-rated and highly-performing drama, Law & Order SVU, also snagged three more seasons.

While nabbing three seasons at one time is surely a feat to be proud of, it isn’t unheard of at NBC, a network that loves to reward shows that simultaneously perform well live, in DVR viewing, and can also be syndicated. And if they have large, dedicated followings — which all 4 Wolf shows do — it only works in their favor.

The shows join the previously renewed medical drama New Amsterdam and the emotional family drama This Is Us, which was scored a three-season renewal.

Following the exciting news, the shows will have to renegotiate contracts with talent. Since three-years is a pretty massive chunk of time, it’s possible that not all of your favorites will stick around for the full-term.

Wolf has found success in both keeping his lead around for the entire duration of a series like Mariska Hargitay on Law & Order: SVU or swapping out the full cast entirely to offer a different perspective and reinvent the wheel. Either way,  it’s bound to be successful and lucrative.

Are you excited about the renewals?

The First ‘Chicago Fire’ and ‘Chicago PD’ Crossover of 2020 Is Coming – Watch the Promo

Published

Chicago Fire and Chicago PD crossover Off the Grid 2020

Fans of Chicago PD, Chicago Med, and Chicago Fire will have to wait an additional week for new episodes.

The One Chicago universe is taking a break this Wednesday (February 19) as it gears up for the first crossover of 2020.

The two-part crossover excludes Chicago Med, though the series will kick off the hour with an intense episode of its own, and instead, finds PD and Fire teaming up to respond to a national epidemic.

It even brings back a beloved PD character, although, it’s not in a way that you’d expect and might not be all that great for Roman (guest star Brian Geraghty).

Here’s what to expect from the crossover airing Wednesday, February 26!

Chicago Fire

In a two-show crossover event with “Chicago P.D.,” a series of teen opioid overdoses sees Severide partner with Sean Roman (Brian Geraghty), but begins to suspect there’s more to the story than his old friend is telling him. Casey tries to be there for Brett as she considers her birth mother’s offer to meet.

Chicago PD: Tracy Spiridakos Teases Fire/PD Crossover, ‘Upzek’’s’ Future, and Relationship with Halstead

Published

Tracy Spiridakos Chicago PD Chicago Fire crossover

Chicago PD and Chicago Fire are teaming up for yet another exciting crossover!

On Wednesday, Feb. 20th, Intelligence and Firehouse 51 will work together after a string of robberies lead to a building fire.

However, Tracy Spiridakos, who plays Hailey Upton, revealed that the situation might get more personal when Voight suspects a firefighter may be involved.

But aside from dosing out justice and catching bad guys, Upton’s had a pretty tough season; she’s dealt with personal childhood trauma, falling hard for a co-worker, and getting abducted.

When we spoke to Spiridakos, she not only dished about the upcoming crossover, but also elaborated more about the brewing love triangle, the state of her relationship with Burgess, and even gave us some insight about Upton’s unique relationship with Halstead.

She also addressed the #Burzek fandom who have shown a bit of animosity towards her character.

And most importantly, she told us about her love for deep dish pizza.

Check out the interview below — you won’t regret it.

We have to address Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 14. Upton and Burgess were abducted, and it was one of a few times where the two ladies shared a really powerful scene together. Tell me about that. How did that feel?

It was great. We got to do some stuff in Season 5, the one where we’re PIs both of us approached, but this one was especially intense due to not only being abducted but also Burgess finding out about Ruzek at the beginning of the episode and the tension that came with that.

But I really like how at the end, they’re bonded beyond anything they’ve ever been and they’re stronger together which is really cool!

Save Yourself - Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 14

Yeah, I love how Burgess and Upton handled their “guy drama.” Rarely do shows allow two grown women to handle something in such a mature fashion. Why was that so important for Chicago PD and specifically, for these two characters?

I think it’s important to just show exactly what you just said that two women can have a conversation about something that’s going on like that and can walk away from that and just be like “things happen, and I understand where you’re coming from and thanks for talking to me about it and we’re good.”

After what they went through as characters in being abducted and not knowing when Burgess walks in and sees Upton tied up and bleeding and not knowing what happened to her and if she was going to survive or what was going on, I think you get sort of stronger bonded going through something like that.
