Chicago Fire Recap: We Call Her Jellybean

“Chicago Fire” Season 3 Episode 21 “We Call Her Jellybean” aired last Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at 10:00 PM on NBC. In this episode, Firehouse 51 gained a new paramedic; and Lieutenant Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) confronted Firefighters Otis (Yuri Sardarov) and Joe Cruz (Joe Minoso), after hearing that the two felt that something was amiss with Firefighter Scott Rice (Warren Chrsitie).

Meanwhile, the firehouse got a call which turned out to be more than just a fire after Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) discovered that one of the fire victims had been raped, which led Sergeant Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) to realize that she had seen the same pattern on a case she worked on ten years ago. Read on to learn more about this episode.


The episode began with the new Paramedic in Charge, Jessica “Chili” Chilton (Dora Madison) introducing herself in front of the entire firehouse, who gave her a chilly welcome, as they weren’t still over the fact that Peter Mills (Charlie Barnett) had left them. After she left to get her paperwork sorted out, Chief Wallace Boden (Eamonn Walker) instructed them to get over it, and to welcome her warmly. They were then interrupted by an alert to a building fire.

Once there, they were told that it was believed that an overloaded power strip had caused the fire, but Billy Carson (Joel Marsh Garland), the guy who lived at the bottom apartment, whom Firefighter Candidate Gabriela :Gabby”  Dawson (Monica Raymund) pulled out of the fire, told them that that hadn’t been the cause.

Upstairs, Firefighter Scott Rice (Warren Christie) decided not to go into the second floor room as there was something wrong with his mask, leaving Lieutenant Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) to pull out the woman there alone. Lieutenant Matthew “Matt” Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Firefighter Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg) then saved Severide and the woman, as Severide had fallen through the floor. Herrmann then told Billy to be more careful, but he told Gabby that the fire hadn’t been his fault. Chili then made a good call with the upstairs victim, Victoria, who was badly burnt.

Gabby was then surprised to see her brother, Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) at the firehouse. He then asked her to check out the fire as he believed that it was an arson case, as Victoria had been raped and had been left for dead.

Meanwhile, Mouch (Christian Stolte) brought in a whole box of pies from Peter and his family. While they were there, Billy swung by and told Gabby that he felt that the police thought that he had started the fire, and left his number with her.

While this happened, Casey pulled Rice aside and asked about Jack Nesbitt (Eric Mabius), whom he used to work with, and discovered that he had a little bit of a temper.

While Rice was with Casey, Joe went to the locker rooms and discovered that there had been nothing wrong with Rice’s mask. He then brought this to Herrmann and Mouch, who told him that they would watch him carefully before doing anything.

Meanwhile, Chili and Paramedic Sylvie Brett (Kara Kilmer) responded to a call where a man had broken his leg trying to jump a fence. On a gut feel, Sylvie went inside the house and discovered that the man had robbed and stabbed a woman, whom they treated as well.

At the house where the fire had been that morning, Severide and Gabby discovered that it had been arson, as somebody had burnt a rubber tire upstairs. After the next door neighbor told them that there had been a man wearing scrubs behind the house two hours before, they alerted Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), who was called up by Sergeant Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) as the case was similar to a case she worked ten years ago.


Meanwhile, after Chili revealed that she had been working on something for champagne bottles, Herrmann praised her design, and told her that they could sell it at Molly’s, thus giving her a warmer welcome.

After Gabby couldn’t contact Billy, as she wanted to tell him that he wasn’t a suspect anymore, became worried after he left a voice message for her. Because of that, Boden told them to look for him, and found him ready to jump from a bridge. Thankfully, Gabby managed to save him without falling down with him herself.

Later, Sylvie and Chili bonded over the fact that they used the same lotion brand, and Severide told Otis to stop spreading rumors about Rice, as he didn’t believe Joe’s and Otis’ story.

At the club, Casey, who had annoyed Jack as he had been looking for him at the back office, decided not to put in his bid for the construction of the other joints that Jack had wanted Casey to build as well.

Meanwhile, back at the firehouse, Olivia arrived, and confirmed that her rapist from ten years ago was loose again as it had the same pattern as the victim was also a nurse, and had brown eyes and hair, and had been subdued by a hit to the head.

And that was all for the recap of “Chicago Fire” Season 3 Episode 21 “We Call Her Jellybean”. For more news, updates and recaps on “Chicago Fire” and other television shows, keep on following Movie News Guide (MNG).
