The Feds keep a close eye on Firehouse 51 as the search for Vince proves fruitless.
The Feds keep a close eye on Firehouse 51 as the search for Vince proves fruitless.
Severide's understandable anger towards his sister's attacker means he's first to be hauled in for questioning, but Detective Lindsay's suspicions sway towards Otis when he fails to provide an alibi.
Meanwhile, Mills takes new girl Rebecca under his wing and advises her to make more effort with the team, with Herrmann's upcoming 20th wedding anniversary inspiring her to make a grand gesture.
Kelly is a law unto himself in the pursuit of justice for Katie.
If the police won't make Vince pay for abducting his sister, he will...
...and Clarke offers to help.
Sky Living HD's Emergency Wednesdays gets off to a stomach-knotting start with Katie's whereabouts still unknown. As hours turn into days and, with still no sign of his sister, Kelly decides to take matters into his own hands.
Any ice hockey fans in the house? Because while Kelly sticks on his detective hat, Shay moonlights as a barkeep at Molly's and her first two customers turn out to be Chicago Blackhawk stars Brent Seabrook and Duncan Keith (guest-starring as themselves).
Dawson's also getting sporty in preparation for a fitness test at the Fire Academy, but she's more anxious about Casey's impending check-up. What will the doctor's diagnosis reveal? Tune in next time to find out.
A drunk driver causes chaos by knocking a transformer on top of another car, cutting off the community's power supply.
Trouble is also on the cards for Clarke when a goodwill gesture at a nearby supermarket results in a confrontation with two armed robbers.
Will being a good samaritan prove more trouble than it's worth?
Chicago's firemen might brave raging flames on a regular basis, but, when it comes to love, they're far more cautious of getting burned.
Otis tries to pluck up the courage to ask Kelly for permission to date his sister, while Boden finds romance in the most unlikely of places.
Elsewhere, troubling times await Casey as the extent of his memory loss becomes apparent.
Readjustment proves to be an issue for Dawson, as she begins her training at the Fire Academy.
Luckily, Severide has taken up a teaching post, so at least there's a familiar face to help her settle in.
She won't be getting any special treatment, though, with Severide under strict instructions to cut anyone who can't hack it, even friends...
The threat of closure still hangs over Firehouse 51 as we head into the mid-season break, leaving our favourite rescuers engaged in what has the potential to be their last shift together. Sniff.
And what a shift it turns out to be! A scandal involving the Union President could have huge implications for Mouch...
... while there's also some news for Dawson too. All this plus the team embark on yet another daring rescue.
Plenty going on for the crew of Firehouse 51 this week. As the station remains under threat of closure, Boden fights to keep everyone together, Otis hunts for a new home and Cruz starts to get worried about his younger brother as Voight includes Leon in the gangland murder investigations.
However, if this picture is anything to go by, the crew are still managing to find time to enjoy themselves. Good on them!
Family matters are also close to Severide's heart as he and his previously unknown half-sister Katie attempt to catch up for lost time and forge a sibling relationship...
Other folk working at forging relationships include Dawson and Casey.
As the will-they-won't-they romance continues to keep us on the edge of our seats we can't help but scream at the screen "just get it together, please!!!" Could this be the episode where all our dreams come true? You'll have to tune-in to find out.
Dawson can concentrate on her day job now that she no longer has to help Casey out with his parental responsibilities. It's a shame because we rather liked Matt and Gabriella playing happy families together - and we suspect that Matt liked having her around too...
While Dawson and Casey continue their 'will they, won't they?' flirtation, one couple who aren't messing around are Isabella and Mills.
A gala event helps to speed their fledgling romance along at full throttle. Don't they look cute together? It's nice to see Mills looking happy again.
Elsewhere in the firehouse, Cruz is feeling the jitters after a drive-by shooting involving the gang who used to terrorise his brother, and Zoya is still determined to secure herself a US visa even after Severide politely turned down her marriage proposal.
Nice try, Zoya, but we're hoping Severide stays single for a little longer thank you!
The crew of Firehouse 51 are pushed to the limit in this week's episode as they attend the scene of a rail collision. The harrowing scenes that meet them will test our heroes both physically and emotionally in a day they will never forget.
As well as dealing with the trauma of the crash site, various members of the team must also dig deep to resolve their own personal issues. Severide's relationship with his father is once again put under strain and Shay and Dawson are forced to face up to the fact that even the strongest friendships can flounder. Yikes.
Boden also has some demons to deal with as he debates whether to save his own career at the expense of his crew. We're in a right quandary with this one. Obviously we don't want Boden to leave, but we'd be devastated if Firehouse 51 was closed. Can a solution be found? We hope so!
OK, so we know that exercise is generally good for us, but in the next episode of Chicago Fire a gentle jog ends up putting Severide's life in serious danger.
The fit fireman discovers a young boy trapped on a derelict building site and embarks on a one-man mission to save the youngster, but will they both get out unharmed?
It's not all plain sailing for the guys back at base either, as Mouch has plenty to say about Otis's latest podcasting project and Boden queries his replacement.
Gail's budget cuts are getting to Chief Boden, so much so that he considers early retirement. We wonder how she sleeps at night.
The rest of the firehouse are also doing some wondering. The subject on their mind is the identity of Gail's mole. We know where the finger of blame should lie, but do they?
Outside of work, Hermann is struggling to stand up to Arthur while Shay is blossoming into quite the social butterfly, and she's setting plenty of hearts-a-flutter along the way. That's our girl!
Kelly Severide is smouldering in this week's episode of Chicago Fire, and we're not just talking about his looks. The firefighter's blood has been left boiling by the recent series of arson attacks, but who is to blame?
Meanwhile Mena Suvari's guest star turn as Dawson's best mate Isabella continues as she helps Mouch to step up his Union Presidency campaign. Vote Mouch, people. You know it makes sense.
What doesn't make sense is the rather nasty surprise waiting for Shay and Dawson when they respond to a routine call. If this picture is anything to go by it looks pretty icky. Still, we're sure our girls can handle it.
The eagle-eyed among you will spot guest star Mena Suvari (American Beauty) who pops up in episode three as Dawson's pal Isabella.
More than just a pretty face, Isabella offers to give Mouch a hand with his campaign.
While Isabella helps Mouch, Dawson finds yourself on the receiving end of some attention from a regular at Molly's bar.
Could her love life be looking up when she accepts the sexy stranger's offer of a date? Or could trouble be lurking around the corner?
Speaking of trouble, Kelly still has the small matter of an arsonist to deal with. Convinced it must be the work of another firefighter, he sets out to investigate - with explosive results.
Remember how Severide met Renee? He rescued her, then she turned up at the firehouse and they went for a date.
We all know Kelly has a thing for the name Renee, but maybe he should have read the warning signs back then? After all, this is a girl who obviously goes after what she wants...
...and right now it seems Renee wants Kelly to be her baby-daddy. The question is, is he? As doubts over his paternity rise, Severide also has the small issue of an arsonist to worry about.
Poor chap, we think he needs a good night out - and we'd be happy to accompany His Royal Hotness. Swoon.
Severide's not the only one in need of some R'n'R...
Shay and Dawson both decide they need to get out more, while the rest of the crew have their own mix of personal and professional problems to get their head around. Not least Casey, who tries to help Heather out, and Mouch, who has his heart set on becoming union president.
The brand new second season started with the welcome return is Lt. Casey. He's back on duty at Firehouse 51 following the death of Hallie.
Casey isn't the only man with things on his mind. Kelly Severide is coming to terms with fatherhood, but we aren't talking about his agreement with Shay...
Plus, Severide has also earned the attention of an arsonist, putting him and the rest of the team in potential danger.
It's good to know that season two is going to be packed with all the heart-stopping rescues, adrenalin-fuelled action sequences, tense story lines and, frankly, hot firemen that we've come to expect from Chicago Fire. Don't miss it.
