This week’s Chicago Fire saw several characters get in trouble, but only a few managed to get out of it by the end of the episode.

Wednesday’s episode “Blow This Up Somehow” involved Blake Gallo (Alberto Rosende) ticking off Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) after another risky rescue, prompting Casey to send Gallo home. It ended up working out in Gallo’s favor, though.

Meanwhile, Casey had another fling and Stellaride finally had their long-overdue conversation after Stella contemplated walking away from the Chicago Fire Department lieutenant’s exam.

Chicago Fire season 9, episode 6 recap

Chicago Fire kicks off by revealing that Casey spent the night with Sydney the car wreck girl, and Stella Kidd’s (Miranda Rae Mayo) still not back in the loft. Cue Casey and Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer) having an awkward interaction at the firehouse coffee machine, where Brett tells him “It’s nice just to talk again.”

But more on everyone’s personal lives later, as a gas station’s pumps have collapsed, trapping a woman’s child in the wreckage. Casey warns everyone not to move until the gasoline can be wrangled, but it’s too late: a rogue spark from one of the pumps creates an explosion. Gallo nearly becomes extra crispy saving a second, previously unseen victim, while Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) rescues the baby.

After the fire is handled, Casey does not seem as impressed by Gallo’s actions as some of his colleagues, and Stella makes clear to Severide that she’s still not coming home. “Do what you’ve gotta do,” he tells her, stonefaced. Wrong answer, Kelly.

Gallo recounts the story to the rest of Firehouse 51 before Casey pulls him aside. Casey reminds him that no one was supposed to move in until he said so. “You’re lucky you’re not dead too,” he says, and when Gallo points out that he knew this was who he was when Casey hired him, Casey sends him packing with the parting comment that he “can’t be [his] babysitter.”
