Warning: Spoilers Ahead
The cliffhanger of the big warehouse fire that set the groundwork for Leslie Shay’s death in last season’s finale came out of the clear blue sky, with no warning at all. This, in turn, set the stage for the big 3-show crossover event mid-season that revolved around the serial arsonist who set the fire that killed Shay.
In contrast, the finale for this season appears to be revolving around existing arcs that have been building up since the mid-season finale. First, we have the entire Jack Nesbitt ordeal. I didn’t like how last week’s episode ended, with Casey on the verge of being outted because of that phone Voight had given him. I truly am worried for Casey, and while I certainly don’t think he will be killed, I do believe he is in grave danger. Then, we have Scott Rice. I honestly cannot get a read on this guy! One minute I think he’s trustworthy, and the next, I believe the things Otis are saying and see him as a danger to Firehouse 51. Will Rice end up doing something that will get someone hurt, or even worse, killed in tomorrow’s finale?
Here’s the official synopsis of the episode from NBC — “Lt. Casey (Jesse Spencer) puts his life on the line and digs deeper into the shady dealings of Jack Nesbitt (guest star Eric Mabius). With members of truck and squad at odds over Rice’s (guest star Warren Christie) actions in the field, Chief Boden (Eamonn Walker) is left to figure out how to create unity in a divided house, while Severide (Taylor Kinney) comes to question his own judgment. A dangerous warehouse blaze quickly gets out of control and threatens members of firehouse 51, prompting Boden and Cruz (Joe Minoso) to risk everything to save their own. Elsewhere, Dawson (Monica Raymund) gets some life-changing news.
The season 3 finale of Chicago Fire is titled “Spartacus” and airs Tuesday at 10/9c on NBC.
