Tonight on Chicago Fire season 5, Severide has a huge decision to make about his personal life and professional life. Also on Chicago Fire 2017 Boden and House 51 get some heat after a split second decision undercuts a superior. If you missed last week’s episode of Chicago Fire season 5, check out my Chicago Fire 2017 recap right here to find out what happened! Tonight’s episode of Chicago Fire season 5 started off with Herrmann at Molly’s counting up the closing deposit when a guy walks in. Herrmann tells him that they are closed and the guy tells him that he knows. He gives him this story about having a job interview in the morning and he doesn’t have a suit. He tells Herrmann that he really needs this job so that he can afford to take care of his little one and spend more time with her. Explains that he has gone through an ugly divorce.
He was hoping that Herrmannn would lend him a couple hundred bucks to get a suit. Herrmann asks him what if he doesn’t give it to him and the guy apologizes and goes to walk out. Herrmann stops him and gives him some money and wishes him luck. The next day Dawson and the others are breaking his stones about never seeing the money again and how he got scammed, but Herrmann tells them that it would have been a scam if he actually believed the man’s story.
Severide tells Kidd about the job offer, but soon after their conversation is interrupted by Dawson who is concerned about Brett. She is currently working out in the bay and snaps at Dawson and Kidd for “gawking like a couple of bitches” and not motivating her to be better. They get a call.
The call is for a accident where there is another house already on scene trying to lift concrete pipes off a car. One of the pipes isn’t secure and Boden calls for 51 to secure the pipe and then 61 goes in to get the woman out of her vehicle. After they get her out, they let the pipes go and they fall off the top of the car.
Kidd goes to Severide’s office to continue their conversation from earlier and she asks him if Anna living there is part of the reason he is considering this. She obviously doesn’t want him to go, she has feelings for him that she won’t admit and he is too blind to see. She asks him why he told her and he tells her it’s because she is her friend and he cares what she thinks.
Brett and Dawson are finishing up at the hospital and Maggie comes over to ask them if they are ok because she heard that some big shot Chief almost got them all killed. Talking about the one from the other house that didn’t catch the pipe that wasn’t secure. Apparently gossip gets around.
Brett and Dawson get a call and when they get there they find a stripper or prostitute at a high end restaurant. Everyone there is kind of nervous about this getting out because they don’t “normally condone this sort of thing.” They think that she may have overdosed on something and push Narcan. They get her awake and she tells them that her chest hurts and then she starts seizing. They are able to get her to stop and get her heart rate stable and off to the hospital.
The Chief that Boden saved earlier in the day, Anderson, and he is attacking Boden for undercutting him at the last call. He then tells Boden that he doesn’t want to make an enemy out of him and Boden tells him that they are in agreement. After shift, Severide decides to take a trip up to Springfield to check out the fire house and meet some of the guys. He is also handed an official offer for the job and you can tell from the look on his face, it’s a tempting offer. After leaving the firehouse, he goes to talk to Anna and tell her about the offer he got in Springfield. She tells him not to do it for her, he tells her that if he does this, it will be for the right reasons.
Meanwhile, Dawson asks Casey about one of the aldermen that was at a breakfast last month, trying to fix him up with Brett. Later at a party for firefighters, when Anderson attacks Boden. Before leaving the party, Boden tells him that maybe he has to go on the record and describe detail by detail how firefighters on that call would have died if he didn’t step in.
Kidd goes to Severide and asks him about Springfield and she reminds him that he barely even knows this woman. He tells her that it isn’t all about her, he just doesn’t want to see himself go down the same road as his father. Later, Anderson does a surprise inspection as Herrmann and the crew from 81 are coming back from Herrmann’s son’s school. They were doing a career day demonstration and Anderson asks him if he filed the paperwork for that.
Moments later they get another call about a man down for Squad 3 and Ambo 61. Anderson and his inspector tags along to the call. When they get there, they find a young man who tried to pull down a fire escape ladder and ended up impaled by it. Anderson sticks his nose in when he tries to tell Squad 3 which type of saw to use to cut the ladder. Severide ignores the order and continues to use the saw they originally had out.
We end the episode off with the guy from earlier coming back to Molly’s to pay Herrmann back for the money he lent him. He got the job and was able to get the money back for the suit. He introduced himself as Greg and thanked Herrmann from the bottom of his heart for his gesture. Anderson shows up at the firehouse with new assignments for a handful of the firefighters and Brett. What will they do to get the crew back together? Come back next week to find out!
