Chicago Fire sent Casey and Severide on a wild investigation this week. Find out what happened in our Chicago Fire season 7, episode 12 recap.

The latest episode of Chicago Fire got the show back to its central bromance, but it also proved that you can suffer for art (and other things).

Wednesday’s episode “Make This Right” involved Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) embarking on a new investigation, this time with Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney). Could they get to the bottom of a suspicious accident without getting into any more trouble of their own?

Meanwhile, Firehouse 51 attempted a very ambitious rescue at an art museum, and two of our funniest firefighters weren’t laughing when they ended up having a disagreement. So who had the most interesting week?

Casey and Severide

Severide and Casey’s new cohabitation experience started off a bit awkward, as Casey tried to get Severide to go out with a neighbor who was doing everything possible to get Kelly’s attention. But Casey’s attention was soon diverted to a motorcycle crash that didn’t make much sense.

Not believing that an experienced rider would just randomly lose control, Casey talked the details of the case over with Severide, who suggested the man could have wrecked his bike intentionally. They couldn’t ask him because it was reported only moments later that he died as a result of the crash. So how would they get to the truth?

They started by asking the police officer who had responded to the accident for his version of the events; he seemed to think it was just bad driving, and filed a police report stating that the cause was “rider error.” But the man’s adult son found Casey and Severide at Molly’s, insisting that his dad was an incredibly safe rider and wanting to know if they had any other information.

The son also mentioned that his father rode with a GoPro mobile camera, which hadn’t been found at the scene—so Casey was determined to know what happened to it and the footage on it that’d show exactly what happened in the crash.

Getting some help from their colleagues, they dug through bags of trash near the scene to look for the camera, which was severely damaged. But Otis was able to save the footage, which showed a surprising reality: the police officer had caused the accident.

They brought the video to Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda), who together with Casey and Severide had a stern talking-to with the cop. The two firefighters then broke the news to the man’s son, who said his father would’ve forgiven the officer, so he didn’t want to sue. Instead, he spoke about the lives his dad’s organs saved. We’re not crying, you’re crying.
