For those wondering, Chicago Fire season 6 is not going to waste much time stalling on the subject of who dies … if anyone does. The cliffhanger from Tuesday night’s finale featuring many different characters, including Casey, Severide, Kannell, Mouch, and Herrmann, in varying degrees of danger after getting trapped in a perilous location. It was the most dangerous crisis that they’ve been in for a good while, and you can easily see why this was intentional. This is a show about people stopping dangerous fires in the end. It makes sense that there would be another one soon.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Derek Haas did confirm one little slide of good news: You will learn who survived “immediately” in the opening minutes of season 6. Obviously, there were no further clues given away on that just yet, in part because the story hasn’t been broken just yet on season 6 and it may not be entirely clear just what will happen in the aftermath of the incident just yet.
The question that may be worth wondering the most now is simply this: Is it necessary for a major character to die on the Chicago Fire finale? Is this something that is actually needed? The answer to that is no, mostly because the show’s established enough goodwill at this point with some other deaths (Leslie Shay’s comes to mind first) that there isn’t a feeling that they have to kill someone in order for us as a viewer to believe in the story.
There will probably be a time next week that is best served to break down specifically the characters to worry about the most, but for now it feels clear that Mouch is the one in the most danger. He just had a heart attack in the middle of a fire, and even if he returns, the character was looking towards a career change. Going through this will probably confirm that he’s making the right decision further. Unless there is some dramatic shift in the story, it’s hard to know how Christian Stolte returns to the show.
