Chicago Fire Review: The Firehouse Starts to Crumble

Because this particular case was so personal, we’re left to wonder for next week’s finale if this week’s actions will be portrayed as an accident, or the most devastating choice a leader has.

Chicago Fire Review: Casey Makes a Dangerous Deal

When Lieutenant Matt Casey said he wanted to be an alderman for the people, he took that promise seriously. The way in which he has stood by his house for four seasons reflects in the way he stands by the people in his district. The latest episode of Chicago Fire, "I Will Be Walking", is no exception. It’s what you would expect from Casey, and it balances out the unexpected crisis another firefighter might soon be facing. Firehouse 51 gets a call where they find a teenager chained 50 feet in the air under the L tracks. The boy, Victor, is just a sweet high school senior about to graduate. Victor’s older brother was in a gang until he flipped and started working with the police. In retaliation, Victor’s safety is no longer in his hands. As Alderman, Casey feels it is his responsibility to intervene before the city is thrown into a full blown gang war. Boden reminds Casey he has an acquaintance who has pull with the gangs. The drawback is that there is always a price to be paid. Casey’s man arranges a sit-down with the gangs, but they refuse Casey’s deal. Victor refuses to let anyone scare him into missing his own graduation. Casey wracks his brain trying to think of a way to solve this as an alderman, but instead he does it as a man and a firefighter. All of Firehouse 51 stands tall as Casey walks Victor to his graduation. This act draws recognition not only to Victor, but to Casey as well. A political consultant approaches Casey about his future political career on the national stage. READ MORE...

There was an awful lot going on in that one, wasn't there? On Chicago Fire Season 4 Episode 18 , we got a wedding, threats on someone's life, all kinds of relationship drama, and Casey's first vote.

Chicago Fire Review: The Right and the Wrong Kind of Trouble

I can’t think of what the T’s in this week’s episode title could possibly stand for other than Trouble and Trouble. While the guys try to find the right kind of trouble to send Mouch off to marital bliss, Casey only finds the dangerous kind on every corner (literally). Let’s recap what happened this week on Chicago Fire. After last week’s awkward encounter, we finally get the story of how Severide and new firefighter Kidd know each other.

Nothing actually happened between them, and he had no idea that she was married at the time. Nothing may actually come of Kidd working closely with Severide now, but it is hilarious to watch Severide tip-toe around her. READ MORE...
