What should fans look for in this week’s episode of Chicago Fire? Get ready for “Where We End Up” with our Chicago Fire season 8, episode 11 preview.
Tonight’s episode of Chicago Fire will see tensions run high and patience run thin as Firehouse 51 is forced to bunk with Firehouse 20.
“Where We End Up” has our favorite firefighters contend with a major blaze; meanwhile Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer), Emily Foster (Annie Ilonzeh), and Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) fear a superior officer isn’t their biggest fan.
NBC’s official episode description reads: “A pest control problem forces the 51 team to temporarily bunk with Firehouse 20; all under the same roof, Casey clashes with Capt. Delaney, while Foster, Kidd and Brett fear Capt. Leone has it out for them; Boden mulls a procedural overhaul.”
It looks like this episode gives everyone a lot on their plates, especially Captain Matt Casey (Jesse Spencer), as he clashes with Firehouse 20’s Captain Delaney on a call. Considering that call needs both of their firehouses, the two leaders better call a truce before they lose all control of the fire, and their subordinates.
With the women of 51 feeling worried about how a different captain sees them, it’s easy to wonder if that fear will affect their performance on the job. Kidd, Foster, and Brett have – for the most part anyway – kept their cool on calls before, but could it be different this time?
The actual fire is the major focus of this week’s promotional photos, so all of 51’s energy needs to be directed there if they are going to be successful in taming it. Hopefully Firehouse 20 will actually assist them instead of stepping on their toes; but considering their captains are at odds, that might be harder than we think.
As for Chief Wallace Boden’s (Eamonn Walker) procedural overhaul? While Firehouse 51 has suffered through changes before, this specific one couldn’t come at a worse time. The house has really started to gel, especially with the new addition of Blake Gallo (Alberto Rosende). They don’t need to be broken apart when they’ve finally come together again.
At the end of the promo, viewers saw Boden call out for his men and women to evacuate, as well as someone yell “Mayday, mayday!” Considering the last major blast cost them one of their own, the chief has a right to worry. Could they be in real danger? Or will they make it out in the nick of time?
We’ll have to wait and see how it all shakes out when “Where We End Up” airs tonight on NBC.
