‘Chicago Fire’ season 3, episode 3 review: A truck accident; Mills, Casey, Dawson face dilemmas

Tonight, there were many problems to sift through when it comes to “Chicago Fire,” and we begin here with the accident that was a starting-off point for everything.

This truck accident was one that cause rifts between multiple firehouses, and it was also a waiting game to prove that the driver was in the right. In a way, this was one of the show’s most realistic cases, but also one of the most frustrating. It may just be us, but we don’t find stories regarding truck crashes to be altogether interesting. The good news is that everyone was alive at the end of it, and there was a fundraiser held at Molly’s to make things a little easier.

What was fascinating, though, was seeing Mills continue to struggle with the possible reality that he may not be a firefighter anymore.

On the relationship front, the good news for Casey and Dawson is that they are preparing for the future … at least in their own bizarre way. They basically decided that they would try to figure out how to fake their relationship is over, mostly so that she could join truck 81 and really move forward professionally. Unfortunately, this step forward could mean a step back personally.

Was there emotion tonight? Definitely, and especially in the closing moments. Still, we found ourselves wanting a little bit more from the entire episode. The story was fairly predictable, and after some of the psychology of last week, we found the story to be somewhat lacking emotionally. Grade: C+.
