Chicago Fire season 7 episode 21 preview: A retirement party

Chicago Fire season 7Next week on Chicago Fire season 7 episode 21, you’re going to see a story in “The White Whale” that could be about tying up a loose end. It could also be offering up something akin to a farewell for someone. After all, this episode is going to be offering up some sort of a retirement party. Who could be saying goodbye? There was no specific news released on that leading up to the episode airing, but we imagine that it’ll be the right combination of fun and nostalgia — basically, the sort of thing that we imagine any retirement party would be.

We should note that we haven’t heard about any major characters departing the NBC show this season — with that in mind, we’re inclined to think that whoever is retiring is either a minor character, or maybe someone we don’t know all that well at all. It is the end of the season, though, and almost anything can happen. It’s possible that someone’s just kept a really good secret.

Below, CarterMatt offers up the official Chicago Fire season 7 episode 21 synopsis with some more insight as to what’s coming up:

05/15/2019 (09:00PM – 10:00PM) (Wednesday) : A serial arsonist cold case is reopened when Lt. Severide finds a connection to a recent salon fire. Firehouse 51 celebrates a retirement party. TV-14 D, L, V

The title for this episode is really all about the cold case — it’s one that apparently, people have been trying to resolve for quite some time. It’s going to be a relief if there’s an answer in this episode, but you gotta recognize that there are no guarantees. There’s also a chance that this is something that will only meet an end when we get around to the finale. That’s when everything could change … and also when we could get the sort of face-melting cliffhanger that could alter the course of the series’ future in some shape or form. Even if there are no major cast departures, there’s also still a chance that we could see some enormous changes within the firehouse 51 world.

Of course, on a more character level we’re hoping that the final episodes offer more opportunities for Severide and Stella to grow close. It does feel like the show is going to continue to explore the idea of Brett and Casey, but we’re not at the point just yet where we’re willing to say if that will happen … or if that will even work. We’ve learned over the years with this show that the writers exploring an idea doesn’t necessarily mean that they will A) land on it or B) that it will stick, once and for all.
