Previously on Chicago Fire Season 10 Episode 8, Violet had been ignoring the pain in her side thinking they were love pains for Gallo… yet her appendix burst! Chief Boden set out on a mission to find out who Lt. Pelham really was and why had he been floating firehouses so long. Turns out, he was keeping a secret of his former superior and took the consequences of them. After finding out, Boden had a change of mind about keeping the man in charge.

Warning… Spoilers below! Including the rumor of a cast member returning to Chicago Fire.

On Chicago Fire Season 10 Episode 9, the fire crew got a call to the park plaza in downtown Chicago. The giant Christmas tree had fallen onto the crowd and a few people were trapped!

They started cutting branches away to free trapped people. They found an elderly man who had been impaled by one of the branches! They freed him and transported him to the hospital.

When Mouch returned to the station, he confided in Herrmann that he’s struggling with the victims they save- not knowing what happens to them after dropping them off at the hospital. So Mouch went to the hospital to check on the Kris Kringle-like man. He was stable and spoke with the man’s wife who told of his heroism, pushing two boys out of the way before the tree collapsed onto him.

Later on, his wife informed him that she was going to make a full recovery but he’ll miss the upcoming school program he attends annually. She thanked the firefighters.

Where’s Stella Kidd?

Chief Boden pulled Severide to ask about Stella Kidd’s (Miranda Rae Mayo) absence. She was next in line for the position that was temporarily given to Pelham but she had been out on extended leaves. He gave an ultimatum to convey to her that if he doesn’t hear from her by the end of the next shift… he’s going to have to make a difficult decision! Will Stella Kidd return to Chicago Fire?!?

Lt. Seager came to visit Severide to try and convince him to return to the arson unit- knowing he misses it.

Severide never got a response from Kidd and had to inform Boden. The Chief called Pelham into his office to offer him the full-time lieutenant’s position on Truck 81.

Made By Firefighters… Drunk by Firefighters!

If you’re ever in Chicago in the winter, you have to visit Winter Fest. Gallo, Violet, and Ritter got a  booth to serve their Fire Goat Pale Ale- even placing top 10! Gallo had confided in Ritter that he’s starting to have feelings for Violet (though he was dating Kara.)

While at the fest, he came out and dumped Kara to clear his path for Violet. Gallo was going to tell Violet his feelings and suddenly they hear their IPA beer had won the competition! It was “Made by firefighters… drunk by firefighters!”

The next day, Gallo tried to talk with Violet but she got a call. When Brett and Violet arrived, they dealt with a man who had a glass ornament orb stuck in his mouth! Brett performed the Heimlich maneuver and got the object out.

Ritter was holding a secret that finally came out… he didn’t write down the recipe and the next batch was disgusting! The brewery owner ejected them from his place and they wondered was it because Gallo was no longer dating Kara.

  1. Myrna Zapantis says:

    They threw Stella under the bus so they can rid of her and make her look bad in everyone’s eyes. The writers on this show have successfully made it possible for the engagement between Stella and Kelly is over. I believe that they have killed the series completely. So sad to see the engagement between Stella and Kelly after all this time be killed of and Stella gone from the show. Good luck in know a lot of people will not be watching the show anymore.

    1. Sir Anthony says:

      I agree! But there could be room for redemption down the line. What do you think?

  2. Denise says:

    I was glad for a respite from the Stella/Severide story. I think the writers went too far with her never doing wrong and being perfect (same they did with Gabby). I would like to see her back but hope the story line changes.
