Chicago Fire is ready for its two-hour end to Chicago Fire season 6, so what will happen? Here are our predictions for the Chicago Fire season finale.

The Chicago Fire season finale is so big, it has to be two episodes—so what’s going to happen at the end of this season?!

Things are certainly stirred up at Firehouse 51. While the team’s last call resulted in the death of a colleague, half our crew’s personal lives seem to be in varying degrees of disarray.

Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) is being propositioned by his ex-girlfriend for possibly more than just work, Joe Cruz (Joe Minoso) slept with his ex-girlfriend only to get decked by her husband, and Gabriela Dawson (Monica Raymund) is still hoping to start a family.

So how is this going to work out? We’ve put together three predictions for the season finale. Check them out below, then don’t miss the final two episodes of season 6 on May 10.

1) Boden will get what he deserves

We don’t know exactly what that will be, but the season finale will definitely have a big win for Chief Wallace Boden (Eamonn Walker).

The last few episodes have all laid hints toward a major move forward for our favorite battalion chief. He could win the fire commissioner’s job, although that seems unlikely just because we don’t know what that would mean for Eamonn Walker’s role in any possible season 7 (reminder that NBC has not renewed Chicago Fire yet).

Or he could just get a huge dose of satisfaction at making Chief Grissom (guest star Gary Cole) get the comeuppance he deserves, which absolutely has to happen given how much Grissom has messed with Severide and now Boden.

Or maybe he just buys that boat and gets to take a much-needed vacation. But somehow, in some way, we’re expecting good news for Boden. It would be cruel and a letdown to see anything else.

2) Dawson will be pregnant

We’ve posited this a time or two, but we’re gonna put it out there definitively: we’re convinced that the Chicago Fire season finale will include Dawson telling Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) that she is pregnant again.

The show has played with the idea of a Dawsey family for seasons now, and again posited the whole Dawson-as-mom idea by introducing Bria (recurring guest star Quinn Cooke). There’s really not much longer the series can put this off; we don’t need another season of Dawson taking in a third random child. Plus, where else does Fire take this relationship? After six seasons, Dawsey has crossed off every line on the TV relationship checklist except family.

Not to mention, the announcement of another pregnancy would be the kind of big, exciting moment that would make fans talk all throughout hiatus and counter-balance any emotional sucker punch that the finale wants to throw. There’s no good reason not to have this happen.

3) The fire department will go through a big change

Tangential to the first point, the show is clearly setting the table for a shift in the big picture of the Chicago Fire Department. Whether Boden gets the top job or not, the CFD is going to have a new fire commissioner, which means there’s going to be changes that roll down to Firehouse 51. We don’t think it’ll be as drastic as last season’s “Purgatory” but the finale will probably have some kind of significant change above our heroes’ heads that will have effects into season 7.

By the way, if you’re keeping score, that means Chicago Fire‘s department is getting upended at the same time Chicago PD‘s unit may be without a boss and Chicago Med‘s hospital board wants to fire their administrator. It’s not a good time to be working in One Chicago!
