Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) is in an interesting place on Chicago Fire. In one breath, she’s further along in her career than ever. She got promoted to lieutenant after a long and arduous process, and has proven herself to be a natural in the role.

Something that’s new for Kidd to deal with, however, is guilt. She revisited the Girls on Fire program she spearheaded in the recent episode “Angry Is Easier”, and started to question whether she was doing something that was positive for the women who join the program, or putting their lives in jeopardy.

Is Kidd’s internal conflict going to affect her career decisions moving forward? Could she decide to leave the 51? Learn more here.

Is Kidd going to transfer on Chicago Fire?

In “Angry Is Easier”, Kidd visits the Girls on Fire group as they run a drill. It just so happens that the woman running the drill is Macy, who was the first Girls on Fire student who graduated from the Fire Academy. Kidd is struck by this realization, and undoubtedly proud, but things take a turn for the worse when she’s approached by Macy’s mom.

Macy’s mom tells Kidd that she’s worried about her daughter’s life, and if she dies while risking her life on the job, it’s Kidd’s fault. This knocks the wind out of Kidd, and it’s clear that she’s then forced to reconsider what she does and whether she’s been a positive influence.

Fortunately, Severide (Taylor Kinney) is able to straighten Kidd out before she makes any rash calls like quitting or distancing herself from the Girls on Fire program. He tells Kidd that she’s not going to be responsible for what happens to her students, and that she needs to focus on being a good role model.

While it’s unclear if this point of contention will come back into play, Kidd does seem to have made peace with this difficult part of her job by the end of the episode. She will continue to stick around and inspire, as well as mentor, the next wave of firefighters.
