Chicago Fire Review: Who Lives and Who Dies…And Who Never Stops Hurting

I’d like to tell you that all the heartache felt in last week’s Chicago Fire wouldn’t be as pronounced with the passing of a few days, but unfortunately pain has a way of lingering. It’s been nearly a week since Severide painfully donated bone marrow to save Anna’s life, and since Dawson and Casey said goodbye to their son Louie. All in all there is a lot of heartbreak to be had on this week’s Chicago Fire, leading up to a strong catalyst which will threaten Firehouse 51 for some time to come. Though Dawson was the one who was seen breaking down at the end of last week’s tearful goodbye to Louie, this week Casey is the one to avoid. He had to be strong for both he and Dawson as they said goodbye to Louie. Now he’s decided to cope with his grief through anger. As a result Casey slave drives the entire truck into cleaning the firehouse from top to bottom when they suspect a rat is in their midst. I wish I was speaking metaphorically. No such luck, as Casey choose to bark at everyone to be on their hands and knees cleaning in deep corners. Everyone understands where all of this anger is coming from, so no one is going to say anything. Casey’s week only gets worse when he has to choose between two victims in a building fire. To be fair, pointing a gun at Casey probably wasn’t the best motivation for Casey to choose the man over a mother and child. The strange thing is that there is no body in the wreckage of the fire.

Chicago Fire Season 5 Episode 11 Review: Who Lives and Who Dies

Chicago Fire has been a roller coaster for the last few weeks, up and down and stomping on our heartstrings. Chicago Fire Season 5 Episode 11 starts out as a way for both the characters and audience to decompress from that - and then promptly goes nuts again because it can. The major thrust of the episode is Casey and Dawson trying to resume their lives after losing Louie to his biological father Andre. Both of them take it badly but they express their grief in two totally different ways. Casey gets the anger side of the equation, snapping at everyone else around him and turning into the world's biggest neat freak when Herrmann thinks there's a rat in Firehouse 51. Seriously, Niecy Nash would be proud of how much cleaning he makes everyone else do. After she gave him a talking-to about his attitude. ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/01/chicago-fire-season-5-episode-11-review-who-lives-and-who-dies/

Chicago Fire Review: To Protect Our Children

Parents do what they have to do to protect their children, or at least they should most of the time. Sometimes they falter, as we saw on this week’s Chicago Fire. It doesn’t matter how old or young you are, a parent can disappoint their children. Gabby and Antonio have to deal with a huge blow from their parents this week while Chief Boden has to protect his son from a danger he didn’t know was there. What we do to protect our kids. It doesn’t always work out the way you plan. Boden’s suspicions are raised when James asks if he can stay with his dad for the remainder of the school year. It’s not that Boden minds. On the contrary, he and Donna love the idea of having James stay with them. It’s just that Boden knows his son. He knows there’s something else James isn’t telling him. When Cruz notices James’s body is covered in bruises, Severide discreetly keeps an eye on James. His reaction to being near people and witnessing a fight on a call tells Severide the Chief needs to know that his son is in trouble. Initially James tries to cover by saying he is being worked over by bullies at school. The real reason James wants to move in with his father is because his mother’s boyfriend has been beating him, so James no longer feels safe in his own home. It’s also why he’s felt more comfortable in the firehouse. He sees a group of men who would do anything to keep someone safe, and he can actually sleep soundly. Boden isn’t quite as calm about the whole situation. He goes ballistic on the guy and is suspended for one shift as a result. In the house’s eyes it was completely worth it, so they throw Chief a suspension party. James’s compassionate nature wins out. He decides to go back to live with his mom and grandma. It seems like the kid’s protective nature has all the makings of a firefighter. READ MORE...
