The good news moving into Chicago Fire season 6 episode 3 is rather simple: Jesse Spencer’s Casey is okay! There may be some reasons to be concerned over the course of the episode, but they’re not going to be tied to whether or not there is some life-and-death trouble for the character.
Instead, this episode entitled “An Even Bigger Surprise” is going to touch on some familiar notes when it comes to firehouse structure — a new chief is going to come in (even if it’s a temporary one), and there will be some conflict almost immediately between this man and Casey. We wonder what the origin of this could ultimately be, but one of our prevailing theories at present is that this does have a thing or two at the moment to deal with other chiefs being threatened by Casey. While he may be technically lower on the occupational food chain, at the same time we’ve seen time and time again that Casey is more than capable of leading his own team. Therefore, there’s often trouble.
As it turns out in this case, Casey also is going to make matters harder on himself by causing some problems with the new temporary chief Sam Mullins. for more insight on that, take a look at the synopsis below.
Chicago Fire season 6 episode 3 synopsis – “Lt. Casey (Jesse Spencer) gets off on the wrong foot with Sam Mullins (guest star John Gatins), a temporary Chief who is filling in for Boden (Eamonn Walker) at House 51 for the morning. When Casey later makes a risky move in an attempt to save a distraught man from jumping off a building, Mullins has a surprise that Casey does not expect. Mouch (Christian Stolte) flies in Cruz’s (Joe Minoso) brother Leon (guest star Jeff Lima) as a birthday surprise, but the rest of the squad struggles to keep it a secret. Meanwhile, Brett (Kara Killmer) is caught off guard when she learns new information about her hometown friend Hope (guest start Eloise Mumford). Taylor Kinney, Monica Raymund, David Eigenberg, Miranda Rae Mayo and Yuri Sadarov also star. DuShon Brown and Randy Flagler also guest star.”
Ultimately, this episode should do a good job of balancing out comedy and drama — with Mouch, we see him bringing Cruz’s brother back as a way to say thanks for everything over the past several weeks. That may make things all that more awkward (and fun) when it does working out according to plan.
Judging from the promo, all we can say is that this temporary chief could go so far as to try and take Casey out of service.
