What should fans look for in this week’s episode of Chicago Fire? Get ready for “Hold Our Ground” with our Chicago Fire season 8, episode 10 preview.

Tonight’s episode of Chicago Fire will bring drama within the walls of Firehouse 51, from co-worker spats, to some major work adjustments.

“Hold Our Ground” pits Ambulance 61’s Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer) and Emily Foster (Annie Ilonzeh) against each other; meanwhile Captain Matt Casey (Jesse Spencer) and newest recruit Blake Gallo (Alberto Rosende) work together to solve a problem.

NBC’s official episode description reads: “Members of Firehouse 51 are dismayed to learn their boundaries have been redrawn to overlap with an adjacent station, and problems quickly arise; Casey and Gallo hunt a missing piece of equipment; Brett and Foster find themselves at odds.”

It looks like Casey and Gallo continue to nurture their mentor/mentee relationship, but everyone’s favorite paramedic partners Brett and Foster are on the outs. Of course, it wouldn’t be Chicago Fire without a little bit of tension at 51 – but how bad will things get?

After all, Emily – along with Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) – was one of the ones to bring Sylvie back to 51 earlier this season; so why have an argument start now between them? It will be interesting to see how Brett handles the situation, being that she’s the Paramedic in Charge (PIC) and doesn’t like confrontation.

If their spat isn’t job-related, how will it affect both Brett and Foster’s personal lives? Sylvie was just getting used to being back at 51, and things with her and Casey were doing better in the friends department. Meanwhile, Emily’s been thriving at the firehouse ever since she arrived last year, so for either woman, this argument has the potential to derail their previous successes.

As far as Casey and Gallo are concerned, the two are featured pretty heavily within the promotional photos, so it appears that this missing piece of equipment is a major issue. Maybe it falls into the wrong hands, or they stumble upon a disaster while searching for the missing item.

Regardless of what’s going on with our favorite firefighters and paramedics, it looks like it’s all hands on deck as 51 deals with an overlap with another station. Oddly enough, there’s no mention of Kelly Severide’s (Taylor Kinney) fate in the episode description, and he’s not featured in the promotional photos either.

Could this mean trouble ahead for one of 51’s best men? We shouldn’t be too worried though, as Kelly has gotten himself out of sticky situations before. Plus he and Stella are in such a good place right now, it would be pretty terrible to break up one of Chicago Fire‘s most stable couples.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens when “Hold Our Ground” airs tonight on NBC.
