Chicago Fire’s characters took the plunge, and the fall, this week. Find out what happened in our Chicago Fire season 7, episode 13 recap!

This week’s Chicago Fire episode saw characters run both hot and cold, and the end result of it all was disaster for just about everybody. Except for the charity they threw themselves into a lake for, of course!

Wednesday’s installment “The Plunge” saw Emily Foster (Annie Ilonzeh) face retribution from the doctor whose advances she continued to decline. When she wouldn’t have dinner with him, there was a complaint filed against her and her partner, and of course it was anonymous. Wonder who made it?

Meanwhile, reckless driving led to a car accident that almost turned one firefighter into a fireball, and while everything worked out okay, he certainly wasn’t—and took his work stress out in his home life.

Taking the plunge

Chicago Fire started “The Plunge” with Foster getting repeated calls from a blocked number, but that wasn’t her only problem. Turns out Foster hates the cold, and Joe Cruz (Joe Minoso) was signing Firehouse 51 up for the Polar Plunge—which meant jumping into a freezing Lake Michigan for charity.

Cue the comic relief where half the squad decided to have lunch outside to prove how tough they were, then tried to train themselves for the event in a variety of very strange ways. At least Dr. Connor Rhodes (Colin Donnell) stopped by from Chicago Med to set them straight.

Foster continued to be apprehensive about that, and more. When she went out to her car, she found Dr. Shaw waiting there, wanting her to have dinner with him. He denied being the mystery caller but told Foster she was “making a huge mistake” after she rebuffed his advances again.

Then Ambulance 61 got called to Lakeshore Hospital where an anonymous complaint had been filed against both Foster and Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer). Since that’s the same place that Foster’s ex worked, this wasn’t suspicious at all. Both were warned that they could lose their licenses. The development made Foster finally come forward about the harassment to Chief Boden (Eamonn Walker).

She decided to confront Shaw herself, with some encouragement from Brett. In the middle of Lakeshore Hospital and with a half-dozen other women watching, Foster told him to “come at me with all you got.” So Shaw did literally, following her out into the parking lot—where Brett had called in Boden and the rest of Firehouse 51. The not-so-good doctor wanted no part of that.
