Curious to learn more about what’s coming on Chicago Fire season 8 episode 2? Admittedly, it’s going to be hard to move forward, and understandably so (spoilers ahead!). We’ve lost someone beloved in Otis, and we do hope that the emotional scene at the end of tonight’s premiere “Sacred Ground” isn’t the last time the character is addressed. We are going to have a very hard time getting over this – we really loved this character.
Yet, the show must go on and in this upcoming episode “A Real Shot in the Arm,” we’ll see how that happens — especially for Sylvie Brett. We do hope we see Brett wrestle with Otis’ death more given how close they were, but she also has some other things on her plate. She’s separated from firehouse 51 thanks to her moving back to her old hometown of Fowlerton. She’s got a new potential gig there but also some frustrations — think in terms of her frenemy Hope, who is going to try and cause more chaos in her life. Hope claims that she’s there for happiness and friendship and so much more, but we imagine that for Sylvie, she knows better. She knows that Hope causes trouble, but that’s far from the only thing on her mind. Remember her engagement and also the question of whether or not she’s truly happy. That’s without even getting into whether or not she and Casey have feelings for each other still.

Below, CarterMatt has the full Chicago Fire season 8 episode 2 synopsis — it gives you more of a sense of what’s going on with Brett, but also how Foster is faring without Brett at 51 and also the arrival of a newcomer — played by Shadowhunters alum Alberto Rosende.
10/02/2019 (09:00PM – 10:00PM) (Wednesday) : Lt. Casey struggles to get Chief Boden to sign off on an energetic new recruit. Against her better judgment, Foster extends an olive branch to her irritating new medic. Otis inspires Herrmann to seek new partners at Molly’s. Brett realizes life in Fowlerton will take some getting used to. TV-14 L, V
Show executive producer Derek Haas told CarterMatt in a recent interview that Rosende’s character is the perfect microcosm for the episode’s title — while so many characters mourn, he is the new arrival who can come in and work to shake things up a little bit. He can offer a different sort of energy than what the firehouse has at the moment and make them look and see the world a little bit differently.
