"No Such Thing As Bad Luck"
Boden meets a blast from his past during a rescue; while Cruz gets an award for his service with the CPD. Here's a recap!
During a house fire call, Boden meets a high school friend; but Casey and Severide think that she might have set it up. Well, Boden got to the bottom of it and later on learned that her son was the one that set the fire as he's addicted to drugs. Boden gets in the middle between him and her and makes him drop the gun and offers him help at a drug rehab center.
After his heroic duty with Chicago PD, Cruz was awarded a commendation for his work. But after he learns about the award, he ignored Severide's orders during that house fire call. Later when he was about to get his commendation; he learns that Severide will be the one to give it to him placing it on his jacket.
Kidd and Otis thought they made a huge mistake when they learn that the dog statue was Molly's good luck charm and given it away has caused bad luck. Herrmann gets word of the IRS auditing the bar. Kidd and Otis try to get the statue back; but when they brought up at the firehouse the statue was broken and later that night Herrmann tells them that things are good to leave the statue broke.
Severide and Kidd's relationship takes an awkward turn as some think that Severide has been staying at the bar till Kidd leaves. Foster is in it and tells Severide that maybe give her space.
The episode was very good. I really thought that Boden's high school friend was going to go after him in a fatal attraction meets fire type; but it wasn't and well written. I couldn't get enough of the humor storyline of the hunt for the dog statue. And I think that Severide is learning not to be so protective as he could win Kidd by not being there all the time. Overall, I give this episode an 8/10.
"Until The Weather Breaks"
Chicago Fire is back with an exciting new episode that will not only play with your heart; but leave you on the edge of your seat.
I very much enjoyed the episode "Until The Weather Breaks" as it's probably one of my favorite episodes of the season; could reach up there in bottle episodes on this show. Firehouse 51 gets a surprise visitor, a kid, hiding in the firehouse. Everyone tries to comfort the kid from Brett, Casey and even Tuesday; but the reason why is the real thriller as the kid was a witness in a murder and one of the shooters happens to find him and looks for him. But that got stopped when Otis called out on his game and everyone tries to get him out and away from the kid, but thanks to Severide and Brett the guy was caught.
Also in the episode, more Severide and Kidd drama; leading to Kidd learning that Foster helped Severide dealing with his feelings for Kidd. And Casey wants to take an adventurous trip around the world, while Severide doesn't like the idea, Brett thinks it's awesome and cute. She even asked Casey if he was down for a group trip. Why not?
"Until The Weather Breaks" is probably one of my top ten episodes of this season. It had a great balance of dramatic moments and humorist moments that I can't get enough. We get some good character development with Casey and Brett (not a lot), but Otis being affected by the gunman coming in the firehouse. Overall, I give this episode a 9/10.
