If you thought that after five seasons that the flames of Chicago Fire would be deeming down, you thought wrong my friend. Season 6 of the hit NBC show has kept the fire burning with fresh and gripping.
Season 6 started off where we left off at the end of Season 5 with Casey, Severide, Herrmann, Mouch trapped in a factory fire. All summer we'd asked that question: who will survive? Well, apparently everyone survives the fire after Boden orders the water cannons on the fire. Casey gets rewarded a medal for saving a life while trapped in that fire, not to mention getting bumped up to Captain at House 51.
It does put a strain on the relationship between Gabby and Casey due to the fact of what she went through wondering if he was going to come back alive or not. But also Gabby's dad becomes a total pain for Casey. But when Gabby's dad tried to get a project going, all he needed was Casey's help at City Hall, but wouldn't do it. After a telling him no, Gabby gets a call about a stabbing at an L track, which happens to be her dad. He survives and takes well with the glory, but maybe, just maybe he's finally come to his senses.
Throughout the season, the folks ate firehouse 51 dealt with a whole lot of stuff from an arson fire at Dona's school to deal with the chain of common between Casey and Severide for which carries on throughout the first half of the season.
Gabby helps a kid out, who at first was at a clinic fire and stealing meds. Then tried to help her with her father being a pain addict due to a work injury. When the dad OD, Gabby, and Severide help out, but the kid runs off because she doesn't want to go through DCFS. Gabby spends her time searching for her as the father is recovering. When she finds her, she takes her to see her father but also tries to get DCFS to let the girl stay with her and Casey til dad gets well. Let's just say it went smooth thanks to Casey.
In the meantime, Kidd moves in with Severide after she got kicked out of her place due to the difference in paying rent. It seemed like these two might restart their relationship, but it doesn't and Kidd gets in a relationship with a member of the HAZMAT team. But there's something, and I think that these two will restart their relationship again.
Britt has had a good season so far with her on again relationship with Antonio and then calling it off again. But I think they'll get back together still; third time is the charm. She got a visit from her best friend from her hometown but didn't understand that her friend was trying to steer away Kidd from the firehouse due to her feelings with Severide. Trying to be a helping hand to all, she plays with Kidd's paycheck that doesn't show up. But when word that Kidd was being transferred without Kidd's knowing, Casey figured out that someone forged the signature which turns out was Britt's friend. And with the help of Miss. Connie, it's bye bye!
Throughout the season the relationship between Casey and Severide has been bouncing back and forth with Casey being named Captain and all. But when Severide gets a visit from his mentor, the tires to push Severide that he should be the Captain, not Casey. After one incident, Casey might be in trouble with his decision making during a car accident. Casey gets a misquoted from Severide's mentor; things get heated again for the two. But when Severide gets word about accommodation for his work, he turned it down. But it turns out that Casey was the one who filed the paperwork on that.
The last episode before the Winter Olympics, Casey and Severide were to turn off the gas pressure at the factory, but it wouldn't turn anymore. Casey and Severide decide to jump off the roof of the building like Thelma and Louis or Butch Cassidy and Sundance kid and well...all we know is they landed in the water and just have to turn in tonight's return at 10/9c on NBC.
So far Season 6 of Chicago Fire has been a blast with gripping storylines and so well developed in characters. The cast is on their feet when it comes to their performances through this season. With many dramatic moments, there's plenty of humorous moments as well and that what makes Fire one of the best shows on Thursday night. I can't wait to see what the rest of season six will bring with Severide's mother coming and not to mention his ex-girlfriend, who said was having his child at the end of season one and beginning of season two but turn out it wasn't.
Overall, I'm given Chicago Fire this season an 8.5/10,
You can catch Chicago Fire when they return tonight at 10/9c on NBC.
