Another week of getting tissues before you watch because this episode was heart pounding and beautiful. Just having a mix is not good. So let’s break down last night’s episode.
Severide officially moves in with Dawson and Casey and returns to Firehouse 51 but in true CFD fashion it never stops as the team helps a family in a rescue situation. But in private he continues to mourn the loss of Shay and he drinks alone at a bar, reaches out to Lindsay and double takes when he sees Brett, who bears a passing resemblance to the woman she replaced.
Dawson, too, still feels Shay’s absence even while she prepares for her new assignment at the rival firehouse led by Welch. Under the guise of helping Dawson to train, Casey surprises her on the roof of 51 with an engagement ring. This time she accepts his proposal without delay and that night they make love. Dawson’s high is short lived, though – Welch blindsides her by accepting a different candidate to his firehouse, in effect rejecting her transfer. His move devastates her – Dawson could wait months until another transfer opportunity arises.
Mills seizes an opportunity of his own and finally locates his father’s family in Joliet. He requests to meet his grandfather, Leonard, but the family member who answers the door remains skeptical and sends Mills away. It feels like a blow to Mills’ mission, until his mom confronts him at the station and reveals that his dad’s family disapproved of their marriage. The racist undercurrent angers Mills and when Leonard agrees to see him, Mills harshly declines.
At the same time, during a daring upside down rescue involving a pulley system and an oxygen mask, Mills suddenly passes out. The team scrambles to lift him out and Mills emerges unscathed, blaming an equipment malfunction except the equipment tests out fine. So what happened to Mills down there? A bit bizarre though the fact that you were upside down makes a lot of sense. You’re not Spider-Man Mills!
Back at the station, Herrmann invites Cruz and Mouch to join the Molly’s team, with one request that in order to expand Molly’s revenue and franchise that they make a food truck. Because nothing says expanding your business like making a food truck. I mean look what happened in the movie Chef (on Blu-Ray right NOW!). Luckily for them, Herrmann loves the idea. I need me some food truck food right about now.
Although Severide manages to appear normal during his shifts, he hits a low point at Molly’s when he drinks too much and invites Brett out to continue drinking at another bar. Herrmann cuts him off and offers to hail him a cab, but Severide declines and ends up sleeping at the station. Later, he misses a date with Lindsay and chases her down afterwards to apologize. Lindsay kindly says she will not wait for him again and Severide breaks down as Lindsay holds him and lets out crying. Damn I feel for you man. But things are about to get shaky as the rivaly between firehouses breaks loose. Here’s a sneak peek and don’t let your heart stop racing.
NBC Gives Three Season Renewal to One Chicago Shows ‘Chicago PD,’ ‘Chicago Fire,’ and ‘Chicago Med’
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.
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
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 PD: Tracy Spiridakos Teases Fire/PD Crossover, ‘Upzek’’s’ Future, and Relationship with Halstead
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!
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.
