Girl power

The beginning of Chicago Fire started off on a lighter note, as while in the common room, Foster stumbled across an article that detailed a Montecito firehouse’s women’s lounge. Brett and Kidd were all for that idea, as they thought the three of them could use a place to relax.

The trio decided to take it up with Chief Wallace Boden (Eamonn Walker) and, despite being initially reluctant, he gave in and allowed them to use the unoccupied blue office. The women got to work, and decorated the space like crazy: throw pillows, pottery, incense, etcetera.

While they were putting it together, Randall “Mouch” McHolland (Christian Stolte) and Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg) wondered whether or not the women were responsible for all the good missing snacks from 51’s pantry. Even though the women’s lounge ticked off the men, other women from different firehouses heard about 51’s female-only lounge. They flocked to it like crazy, and it was soon the most popular place to be.

Unfortunately, the fun stopped there, because when Brett, Foster, and Kidd returned from a call, they found their lounge to be messy, chaotic, and very un-zen. The other women who invaded their space obviously didn’t share their calm, cool vision for the lounge, which meant there was only one thing left to do: shut it down for good.

Stella took it upon herself to break the news to Boden, who was more than happy to help her relinquish the space.  Wallace offered words of wisdom to Kidd, and told her that the community she’d been looking for, she already had right here in 51. Herrmann echoed his sentiment, saying that the guys missed having her around in the common room, and that the ladies were all welcomed back at any time.
