Fans are about to get a punch in the gut with this episode as a member of 51 is leaving the squad and show. The team rolls in for the morning shift and Boden corners Mills with big news informing him that he will rejoin squad. With Severide out on medical leave and Rice assuming his lieutenant position, a spot opened up for the current paramedic. Mills beams with excitement and snags his old uniform and gear, eager to jump back into the firefighting fray. He shines during a strange rescue involving an unconscious man impaled on top of a lamppost and later finds his sister and mother back at 51. They present him with a radical idea: what if they keep the restaurant in North Carolina? Mills bristles at the prospect of leaving 51 right after returning to squad, but his sister and mom declare that they’ve made their decision already. They’re leaving Chicago.
Later, Rice complains about hosting a dinner party for his family, and Mills offers to help cook. Thankful for the assistance, Rice insists Mills attend the dinner with his sister. At the party, Rice’s comments about not taking family for granted really land for Mills. He reassesses his desire to stay on squad and ultimately decides not to continue chasing his dad’s ghost. When Mills makes this announcement to the squad, they react with shock and sadness – and Casey pleads with Mills to wait until after this shift to make any final decisions.
A call sends the squad out to a serious car wreck and some quick thinking on Mills’ part revives the driver. Saving a life weighs heavy on his mind, coupled with personal appeals from Cruz and Herrmann to reconsider. The final trigger for Mills occurs when he hears that the impalement victim from earlier committed suicide after the death of a loved one. This solidifies Mills’ decision to move to North Carolina.
At Chicago Med, Severide shrugs off his doctor and insists he’s made a full recovery. He asks around for April at the hospital and discovers her name no longer exists on the schedule. She turns up at her apartment and reveals that she took a leave of absence from the hospital after the bomb incident and purchased an around-the-world plane ticket to refocus her life. This seems to place their rekindled friendship on a slow track – until April stops by Severide’s apartment, unannounced. Their simmering attraction quickly reaches a boiling point, and they lock lips while their clothes fall to the floor…
Meanwhile, Herrmann, Cruz, Otis and Orlovsky’s youth hockey team, the Wicker Park Wolverines, pulls off a huge win to send them into the league championship, but Orlovsky worries that Herrmann’s son, Luke, could jeopardize their chances at victory. Herrmann refuses to pull his son from the starting lineup at first, but reconsiders right before the game begins. When Herrmann tells Luke the bad news, his son celebrates, elated to sit on the bench. The move proves the key to victory and the Wolverines win the championship.
The Wolverines’ championship trophy arrives at Molly’s just in time for the beginning of the real celebration – the Peter Mills goodbye party. Before the man of honor arrives, Severide receives a message from April. She calls in a drink order for him and asks Herrmann to write “Wow!” on a napkin. Although he’s happy April enjoyed their night together, Severide fails to hide his disappointment that she decided to leave town. Moments later, Mills enters Molly’s to thunderous applause and gives an emotional speech that emphasizes how much his three years at 51 mean to him. He says all his goodbyes in between tears, but give a sorrowful kiss to his first love from 51…Dawson. Just like that the episode closes with Peter Mills packing his things and leaving the firehouse, bound for North Carolina. Farewell Mills, you will be missed at 51. Any chance he’ll come back? Next week prepare for another Crossover Week as Fire, PD, and SVU join together again. Here’s a sneak peak.

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