We’re finally back after the long hiatus, it may be a really long time to us, but it’s only been almost 2 days since Katie got abducted in Chicago Fire land. Chicago PD’s detective Lindsay made a guest appearance with a small cameo of Dawson’s brother Antonio as Katie’s abduction storyline unfolds during the episode.
Chicago PD managed to arrest Keeler, only to be released. Keeler’s got a hook on somebody higher up the food chain. This obviously does not bode well with Severide. Looks like Keeler’s sticking around, so is detective Lindsay. I don’t mind, since I love seeing Sophia Bush on TV. I honestly don’t see a point of letting this storyline stretch out, but we’ll see how it goes.
Halfway through the episode, we learned that Katie is moving to Colorado. Severide looks bumped upon hearing this, but he understands. Poor Otis, I really liked the two of them together, even though it’s for a short while.
Dawson failed her firefighter test and she’ll be back at 51 as a paramedic. Although I’m thrilled because I love the dynamic duo that is Shawson, kicking ass and being paramedic rockstars alongside each other, it sucks to see Dawson fail her test as she worked really hard for it. Rafferty’s suspension for treating a man without his consent makes Dawson’s transition back to 51 a smooth one, but I’m going to miss her. I was starting to warm up to Rafferty, Shay and her make a great team. I wouldn’t mind if she comes back to the show in the future.
Boden broke things off with Donna because he’s convinced he’ll wreck their relationship in the future, because he always does in the past. That’s right, it’s the past. Just be happy, Chief! Also, Donna can decide for herself what she’s getting herself into. She’s a grown woman. I hope she’s sticking around.
Also, Hermann passed his lieutenant test! Can a firehouse have more than one lieutenant, or does he have to leave 51? I sure hope not!
I think it’s a great episode. There are several storylines to look out for, whether Jones will make it as a firefighter, will Dawson retake her test, will Keeler get what he deserves and the safety and wellbeing of Casey. Let me know what you guys think of the episode and what you’re excited to see in the remaining of the season!
