Read on only to learn more about this episode.
The episode began with Chief Wallace Boden (Eamonn Walker) noticing that Captain Dallas Patterson (Brian White) was having the squad do drills while he wasn’t around. In fact, at that moment, he was with Chief Ray Riddle (Fredric Lehne). He managed to get Patterson as an ally in his fight against Firehouse 51, and in particular, against Boden, Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney), Lieutenant Matthew “Matt” Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Gabriela “Gabby” Dawson (Monica Raymund). Because of this, he arrived late to a call, a house fire, where the rest of the house already at.
There, they managed to rescue a baby and his mother, and in gratitude, the mother’s brother, Bob (Darin Heames), gave them free tickets with backstage passes to a concert for Rush. It was the band that he worked for, much to the delight of the firehouse, and especially Mouch.
Later, he held an air drum competition to see who else would go with him and Casey to the concert, and as Boden declined the offer, Otis (Yuri Sardarov) was chosen to go along with them and Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg).
Meanwhile, Otis tried to give Jimmy Borrelli (Steven R. McQueen) some advice in his in-house relationship with Jessica “Chili” Chilton (Dora Madison). It was even though he had never been in an in-house relationship before.
However, both Casey and Gabby seemed to be doing well, as it seemed like their recent ordeals have brought them closer together.
Casey also told Patterson that it might not be a good idea to keep on targeting Severide all the time, as Severide is quite good at his job.
Meanwhile, Boden was told to give Riddle hard copies of a year’s worth of incident reports, which he got at home, where he and Donna Robbins (Melissa Ponzio) were interrupted by a knock on the door by Serena Holmes (Ilfenesh Hadera), their new Airbnb next door neighbor for the week.
They then all got another call for an accident involving two cars and a biker gang.
There, Severide quickly realized that they had to get the SUV driver out right away. He knew that the bike gang members were going to do something to the driver, but Patterson didn’t listen until the bikers began to mob the SUV.
Back at the firehouse, Severide was reprimanded by Patterson, who didn’t understand why he warranted it. He was just doing his job, and didn’t understand why Patterson felt that he was being insubordinate.
Meanwhile, Boden swung by his house as Serena had asked for help. She claimed to have locked herself out with the stove still on inside.
Boden kicked the door open and immediately found it strange that the oven wasn’t on, and that Serena was trying to flirt with him- something that he told his wife later on.
Patterson then asked Boden to transfer Severide out of the house, but Boden refused to do so, as he had the final say in the firehouse.
Later, after confronting Joe Cruz (Joe Minoso) about his visitor, a family friend turned gangster who wanted Joe’s help to get out of the gang. Joe asked him point blank about what he was truly doing to the house.
After the shift, Casey, Otis, Herrmann, and Mouch were able to get a picture with Rush but left after discovering that they were given tickets behind the stage. However, right after they left, Bob apologized to Mouch and gave him his real seat- right in front of the stage.
Meanwhile, at Molly’s, Patterson confronted Severide, who was just trying to enjoy a beer. Severide, after he realized that Patterson was questioning his commitment, got annoyed, which caused Patterson to unjustly suspend him for one shift.
At the Boden household, Boden was taken in for questioning by a police detective as Serena had claimed that Boden had attacked him earlier that day.
