Keep reading to find out what happened tonight on Chicago Fire 2017 and if you missed the last episode of Chicago Fire season 5, check out my recap right here! Tonight’s episode of Chicago Fire season 5 started off with Clarke coming to see Severide with some news, they started Anna on chemo again and think that she will be strong enough for her bone marrow transplant the next day. Severide and the team then get a call. The call is for an apartment fire where a girl is stuck inside and Severide goes in for her, but shortly after getting the girl out, they get a rush of air that forces the fire into the room that Severide is in. He sees it and makes an attempt to get out by jumping through a second story window.
He is unresponsive when Dawson and Brett rush him to the hospital. Clarke takes him and tells them that he will keep them posted and moments later when the rest of the team gets to the hospital, they find out that he is moving his hands and feet so he isn’t paralyzed. Kidd volunteers to stay behind for when he wakes up. When he wakes up we find out that he has some bruising on his spine and a concussion, but nothing he won’t fully recover from.
When the team gets back to the firehouse, Andre shows up and Dawson and Casey are pissed that he is showing up after blowing off their visit. He tells them to hear him out and he tells them that he is getting deployed again and it’s going to be a long deployment. He also tells them that he signed over his parental rights and reassures them that he thinks they are good to Louie and tells them to make sure they take care of his son.
Otis goes to Boden to ask him if he would be ok with a PSA trying to get people to go through firefighter training, he gives him the ok. Meanwhile, Severide faces another setback when it comes to the bone marrow donation. The bruising on his pelvis is too extensive for then to do the procedure and they aren’t sure for how long. Later, Severide makes a visit to see Anna and apologize about the transplant not working out because he really wanted to help. He then asks how long it took for her to find him as a match and she told him 14 months, which makes him feel bad about going to work after Clarke told him he was going to book the procedure. She tells him that he shouldn’t feel bad because he saved that other girls life.
Dawson is feeling really bad about the fact that Andre is going to be deployed without meeting his son, especially because there is a chance that he might not make it back from Afghanistan. Dawson and Casey go to see Severide and he tells them about the procedure being cancelled and Dawson mentions that it’s probably because they can’t give him the epidural, due to the trauma, but he doesn’t care about the pain. He goes to see Goodwin and tells her he would like to do the procedure anyways, without the epidural if need be. She tells him that she can’t allow that no matter how much he insists he can tolerate the pain.
Casey and Dawson bring Louie to meet Andre and his parents refers to them as some of their friends. Andre’s mother goes up to the counter with Dawson to thank her for taking such good care of Louie. Meanwhile, Goodwin tells Severide that he can stop calling every hospital to find one that would do the procedure. Goodwin gives him the go ahead to go through with the procedure, without the anesthesia.
Back at the firehouse, Andre shows up to talk to Dawson and Casey and tells them that he has changed his mind about Louie and has asked for a transfer to a closer base and is going to fight for custody after all. They get a call and tell him that he needs to leave right now. The calls is for a single vehicle accident involving a father and his three kids. Two of them are sitting on the side of the road and the father is sitting by the car where the third child is stuck inside.
Meanwhile, at the hospital, Severide is having his procedure done and he is in a ton of pain, but he manages to get through it. He is excruciating pain. Meanwhile, Dawson and Casey are going through some excruciating pain of their own as they walk into a hearing regarding Louie. When they walk into the hearing Andre and his entire family. Dawson steps outside and tells Casey that she doesn’t want to go through a long court process if in the end he ends up taken out of their house. She also doesn’t want to be the person to deny Louie the family that is sitting in the other room.
We end the episode off with Anna being told that it is time for her to be prepped for her transplant and after she leaves Severide’s room, Clarke tells him that what he did for Anna was the bravest thing he has ever seen anyone do. Dawson is packing Louie’s stuff and saying good-bye to him. She tells him that she is always going to be there for him and that she loves him and always will. Casey is standing outside the room and looking in. Dawson gets up and goes to Casey and breaks down.
Back at the house, Boden tells them that he gets it that there are people that aren’t there. Some are hurt physically or emotionally, but they are all the bravest people he has ever known. Back at Dawson and Casey’s, Andre comes to pick up Louie and Dawson and Casey say bye to him one more time. As Louie is walking away with his suitcase rolling behind him, he keeps looking back at them.
