Chicago Fire season 6 episode 14, the first of two episodes airing back to back, started off on what was certainly an emotional note. We were reminded in the opening montage of Severide’s late love Anna, who died last season after her cancer returned and there wasn’t anything she can do to get better. He was devastated, and he’s since put in some time trying to move forward.
Yet, there was a part of this episode tonight when he didn’t seem altogether keen to actually go through with visiting her old town of Springfield to attend an event honoring her. It was clear that he was struggling with the idea of going through with this, unsure as to what he should do.
To go along with this, there was another massive crisis that Firehouse 51 had to deal with tonight: An incident of domestic violence that revolved around a woman doing everything that she could in order to try and get away from her abusive husband. Casey, knowing what happened with his mother, did everything that he could in order to care for her. Yet, it was difficult given that it proved very difficult to convince her to speak out. She kept acting out as a means to try to make something happen; unfortunately, nothing was altogether sticking.
It was Stella who eventually convinced him to go to Springfield to see the new Anna Turner Children’s Nursery. This was sweet, and beyond that a really great way for the show to honor this character and her memory. It was something the likes of which we hadn’t seen on the show in a while — at least in an emotional sense. Also, we’re rooting for Stellaride more than ever.
The state of the slamigan
One of the funnier subplots tonight was getting a chance to learn more about Cruz’s invention — and, to go along with that, the attempts to get it off of the ground. Herrmann and Mouch went into overdrive to make sure that it flew off the shelves to firehouses everywhere with some help; unfortunately, in the process there were only two slamigans that were actually sold.
Also, someone put Capp’s chair on the room.
Is Brett pregnant?
We write a little bit more about this over at the link here. Take a look! For now, let’s just say that the story hit all of the right notes and that Brett actually isn’t pregnant.
As powerful and entertaining a Chicago Fire as any one that you’ve seen so far this season. This was an installment that packed in a lot of content and we are pretty darn curious as to see where things are going to go from here.
