Could Chicago Fire be about to say goodbye to yet another member of its family? That’s the burning question on the minds of fans heading into Wednesday’s new episode which finds one member of 51 in quite a grave situation.

In episode 18, “What’s Inside You,” a routine trip to the store takes a dramatic turn for the worst when Chief Boden (Eamonn Walker) finds himself caught up in the middle of a hostage situation. It all seems to begin when a vehicle crashes into the store and an armed man exits leading to an intense hostage situation.

Rather than sitting idly by, Boden decides to put his training to use to help those around him which doesn’t seem to sit too well with the armed man. In an intense moment within the promo for the episode, the armed man turns the gun directly on Boden and seems ready to pull the trigger.

Things aren’t looking good for Boden, but exactly how worried should we be for our beloved Chief?

Does Boden die on Chicago Fire?

Although Boden finds himself in a dangerous situation in episode 18 when he’s among a group of civilians taken hostage, fans can rest at ease in knowing Boden does not die in the episode and is not leaving Chicago Fire.
