Chicago Fire Season 6 Episode 6 Review: Down Is Better

Ding dong, the witch is dead. Okay, so Hope's not dead, but she was banished on Chicago Fire Season 6 Episode 6 . And not a moment too soon. It was past time for that harpy to go. Not that her departure solves all of 51's problems. No, that would far too easy.

Chicago Fire Review: Casey’s Promotion Comes With Some Hits

People do not like being told what to do. That is not likely to change, but in a situation where rank butts heads with expertise, things get much more complicated. Casey and Severide have been through this type of situation before. Their initial animosity was the catalyst for their trajectory on Chicago Fire, and sometimes it does affect their friendship. Two alpha leaders in one house is bound to be trouble on occasion, but now Casey has a title that indisputably entitles him to push orders on Severide. That doesn’t necessarily mean it is the right thing to do. Heavy is the head that wears the crown, and if the man wearing the crown expected his relationships to remain the same, he was sorely mistaken. READ MORE...

Chicago Fire Season 6 Episode 5 Review: Devil's Bargain

Hope is a sociopath. Or has antisocial personality disorder. Whatever. Bottom line, we found out on Chicago Fire Season 6 Episode 5 that there is something seriously wrong with Sylvie's childhood friend. Now if we could only sort out what crawled up Casey's ass and died. I'm starting to think 51 needs to go on some kind of team building retreat or something. Maybe some trust falls would sort Matt and Kelly out.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/10/chicago-fire-season-6-episode-5-review-devils-bargain/

Chicago Fire Review: Gabby Takes The Lead

Gabby Dawson is tough as nails, something she proves everyday on the job. Going the extra mile means not walking away from a dangerous situation before it turns into a disaster. Gabby does that and more when she sees an unstable construction site. She walks right into danger, not knowing that her swift actions would save lives, or potentially cost her her own. Gabby ends up trapped, and she has to use all of the skills Chicago Fire has trained her for to save everyone who is trapped. On the day of her husband’s promotion, Gabby has no reason to stop and intervene in anyone else’s business. When she sees too much weight put on a freshly paved garage, there is no way that Gabby can not say something. She gets trapped in the ensuing collapse for her trouble. She gets stuck with a social worker trying to ignore an ignorant woman, an Army sergeant who has never seen combat a day in his life, a bank teller with anxiety issues, and a Chinese-American electrician who spends a good portion of the episode trying to convey that his daughter is stuck in the elevator. From that point on it is crisis after crisis with no way out. No cell signal, jammed emergency phone lines, no stairwell or elevator access, carbon monoxide poisoning, and a general distrust of strangers. READ MORE...

Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) calls out for Kelly, saying it’s time to go to work when Hope comes out in just his shirt. He tells Stella to go ahead, he will meet her at the firehouse. Lt. Matt Casey (Jesse Spencer), Gabi Dawson (Monica Raymund) and Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg) walk towards the firehouse, learning Chief Boden (Wallace Eammon) won’t be in for the first part of the shift and the chief taking over is apparently a real bear. He berates the crews saying if they are not 15 minutes early for their shift, they are considered 15 minutes late.
