What should fans look for in this week’s episode of Chicago Fire? Get ready for “Shut It Down” with our Chicago Fire season 8, episode 14 preview.

Tonight’s episode of Chicago Fire finds Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer) debating as to whether or not to let her birth mother in, while a series of mysterious calls leaves a confused Firehouse 51 in their wake.

Last week in “A Chicago Welcome,” fans were first introduced to the idea of Sylvie’s birth mother getting in contact with her. She mentioned it to Captain Matt Casey (Jesse Spencer) while they were spending their off-duty time looking for the lost cat of a fire victim.

She asked for his advice, to which he said that if anyone could deal with a bombshell, it would be Sylvie Brett. That seemed to resonate with Brett, as it’s not the first time she’s come out stronger after encountering issues on the job.

With this though, it’s slightly different, as Sylvie hasn’t mentioned her biological mother since her adoption was first brought up a few seasons ago. While she’s not shy about her adoptive past, she seems to grapple with major decisions in a very careful way. Will she make the right choice? Or will it end up affecting her both on duty and off?

Elsewhere at 51, Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney)will come up short when it comes to his duties as Joe Cruz’s (Joe Minoso) best man. Of course, it is Kelly Severide after all: if anyone can eventually make things right, it’s Kelly. Hopefully it doesn’t affect their friendship too much as it’s been nice to see the lieutenant grow closer to his squad member.

Finally, “Shut It Down” finds Randall “Mouch” McHolland (Christian Stolte) is in over his head. It seems like this week’s episode will dish out a lot of personal problems for our favorite firefighters, but we’ll have to see how things shake out when “Shut It Down” airs tonight on NBC.
