Warning: General spoilers ahead
With there now being 4 series under the #OneChicago umbrella, it seems most episodes of Chicago Fire are now intertwined with P.D., Med, and most recently, Justice, more often than not. Now, don’t get me wrong, that’s not a bad thing because we love everyone in Dick Wolf’s Chicago family, but it’s just becoming increasingly more rare to have an episode that focuses solely on Firehouse 51. That all changes tomorrow, where we get the first Fire bottle episode in a long time, with the entire hour taking place at 51.
The episode centers around 2 rival gangs, and a childish game of tit-for-tat. One gang member’s young sister, Tiana, had been shot and killed, and this results in a big shoot-out, leaving 2 people shot, one from each side. Dawson (Monica Raymund) and Brett (Kara Killmer) are called to the scene for one of the victims, but the rival gang decides to take their guy and hole themselves up in the firehouse, which is just a couple of blocks away. So, now, Chief Boden (Eamonn Walker) is dealing with a hostage situation, and to make matters worse, the gang leader threatens to kill everyone if their gunshot victim dies.
Of course, Dawson and Brett aren’t there, and so, a revolving door of characters step up to try and save the guy’s life, beginning with Stella (Mirando Dae Mayo). Hell, even Otis (Yuri Sardarov) gets a stab at treating the man’s wounds (yes, our Otis! :-)) It’s an extremely volatile situation, which is escalated even further after Severide (Taylor Kinney) gets a 911 call out on the fire truck radio, prompting the SWAT team to show up. It all reaches a boiling point, with everyone’s lives hanging in the balance, and it’s up to Chief Boden to come up with a resolution before it’s too late and the bodies start piling up.
Episode 5.16 of Chicago Fire is titled “Telling Her Goodbye” and airs Tuesday at 10/9c on NBC.
