What should One Chicago fans learn from this week’s Chicago Fire? Look closer at the latest episode with our Chicago Fire season 7, episode 12 takeaways.

What did One Chicago fans learn from the latest Chicago Fire episode? Here’s what we took away from this week’s installment, “Make This Right.”

“Make This Right” featured Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) as they searched for the truth behind a freakish motorcycle accident. Meanwhile, Emily Foster (Annie Ilonzeh) had a fling that she will likely regret, if that overly dramatic music sting was an indication.

If you missed any of this week’s episode or just want a refresher on the events that we’re about to discuss, you can catch up with our Chicago Fire recap.

Below are our takeaways from this week’s episode:

1) Cops are incompetent

It’s starting to feel like outside of the Intelligence Unit on Chicago PD, the other police in Chicago are either corrupt or incompetent. This episode’s main plotline featured a uniformed officer who struck and killed a motorcycle rider, then tried to cover it up by blaming the dead man!

While he didn’t do it maliciously, it was just some ridiculous behavior. Add that to the at least half a dozen cops or ex-cops who’ve been corrupt or otherwise done something wrong on Chicago PD, and this isn’t a flattering look for the department in the One Chicago universe.

2) Is Foster about to have a stalker?

Annie Ilonzeh mentioned that Foster would get a new love interest in our interview with her, but the fling with Dr. Shaw took a very odd turn in this episode.

It’s one thing if Shaw wanted to ask Foster for a second chance, but him turning up at Molly’s with another woman—clearly using her so Foster could see them there—was creepy and gross.

And then him talking to Foster took on an even creepier quality when the show placed dramatic music underneath it, the kind that only gets played when something bad is about to happen. It definitely sounds like Foster is going to be in some kind of obsessive ex storyline, and that hasn’t gone well on the show before (see: Stella’s ex-husband).

3) Don’t stick your head into things

We’re just going to throw that out there, in case anyone was thinking about seeing if their head fit into any sculptures this weekend. As evidenced by the rescue scene above, it’s never a good idea to put your head into anything that is clearly not designed for it. Sometimes, the rescues that our heroes have to go on look more like something out of Ridiculousness.
