If you missed last week’s episode, you should check out my Chicago Fire 2017 recap right here to get caught up.
Tonight’s Chicago Fire season 5 finale started off with Casey taking fire for his first responders bill. When he tries to talk to the crowd about how the money would help them, they are screaming at him. They think that he is just a typical politician trying to take money from the tax payers. Casey gets home to find Dawson’s father sitting on his couch eating a bowl of cereal, he seems to have overstayed his welcome.
We then see as the crew respond to a motor vehicle accident and the car is on fire. They are able to get the man driving and his son out of it alive. Unfortunately, the boy had baseball cards signed by the Cubs world series winning team and they didn’t survive. Herrmann seems to really want to make it up to the kid. Meanwhile, Dawson is looking for Casey and Casey says something to her about her father and this upsets her.
A few minutes later, Dawson and Brett get a call about and when they get there, they find a man whipping himself. He is bleeding from his back and refuses to stop hitting himself with the whip. They are able to restrain him and cover the wounds. Back at the firehouse, Cruz is waiting to get final word on his suspension. Boden goes to Severide and tells him that headquarters reached out and needs one of the men on Squad 3 to be put as a floatable.
Severide goes to talk to Cruz, who has been moping around the house and attempts to talk to him. Cruz is shut down over this suspension and after Severide walks away, Cruz calls his brother, Leon. He calls him to talk to him about his next semester in school, which Cruz has been paying for.
Herrmann goes to see the boy from the car accident earlier that day. He tells him that he has a bunch of baseball cards of all the Cubs players and he wants to give them to him. After telling him that, the boy starts to seize and gives everyone a good scare. He ends up being ok, but Herrmann feels like giving him those cards isn’t enough. He has a look on his face like he wants to do more, but what can he do?
Herrmann heads home and starts ripping apart the house looking for the cards he promised the boy, but Cindy tells him that he sold those. Apparently they were sold at a garage sale that they had a few years ago. We then get a look at Cruz and the guys at Molly’s and Cruz is clearly holding a grudge against Mouch. Severide tells him that he needs to get himself together or find somewhere else, or something else!
Mouch got up and walked away. Later we see Herrmann talking to him and Mouch has been a little rough on himself. Moments later, Platt walks in to talk to Mouch and it sounds like Mouch is talking about leaving the CFD. The next day he goes to the firehouse and starts looking at his locker like he is going to clean it out. Dawson goes to talk to Casey, but it turns into a screaming match. Herrmann interrupts and asks if they can take a ride, Casey says yes, but then tells him to go ahead.
Herrmann, Mouch, Kidd and Otis go to the hospital to see the kid as he is being discharged from the hospital. They pick him up and bring him for a ride. They tell him that they are going to finish what he started. We then see that Casey decided that he is going to go to the Town Hall meeting that he was missing. He is trying one more time to try and get his bill passed, or at least that’s what I thought he was going to do.
He goes in there and talks about his bill. Then tells them that it is clear that they aren’t going to listen to him talk about it because of appearances. Casey then tells the crowd that he is stepping down as Alderman. He then nominates Tamara Jones to fill his seat. She gets a standing ovation while walking to the podium.
We then see where Herrmann and the crew brought the kid from earlier. They brought him to Wrigley to meet the last player he needed an autograph from, Kris Bryant and he signs his cast for him. He then asks Herrmann to sign it for him too. While there, they get a call about a factory fire. They rush off to the scene and when they get there, they rush in to start getting people out. Mouch tells Herrmann before going in that this is his last shift, he is retiring after this.
Dawson gives Casey a look when they get there, like she wants to say something, but Casey has to rush in to help rescue people. The whole crew is inside the building looking for people who might be trapped. The building seems to be really unstable and Boden calls for all firefighters to evacuate the building. Herrmann calls out to Mouch, telling him that they have to get out, but Mouch doesn’t look good. Herrmann calls out that he thinks that Mouch is having a heart attack!
Casey also found someone and is attempting to get them out, but while walking out with them, the ceiling above him starts to fall. He gets trapped and Severide can’t get to them because he is stuck too. Herrmann and Mouch are surrounded by fire too. Boden has Cruz begging to go back in. Boden and Cruz were about to run a hose line when the entrance ends up blocked and they can’t get in.
Cruz is pleading to Mouch to get out of there, Herrmann tells him he can’t talk. Cruz starts crying that he needs to get out, he can’t die in there. Casey can’t get out, there is no available exit. He asks if Dawson is there and he takes his mask off to tell her that she is the best thing that happened to him. She tells him to put his mask back on and get out, but he just continues to tell her how much he cares about her. Tells her that she is his miracle and that he loves her.
