In this episode, tensions rose even more between Squad 3 and Truck 81 after Otis (Yuri Sardarov) continued to have a problem with Scott Rice (Warren Christie). Meanwhile, Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg) embraced his role more as a good mentor to Jessica “Chili” Chilton (Dora Madison); and Lieutenant Matthew “Matt” Casey (Jesse Spencer) cooperated with Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) and went undercover at Stilettos in under to unearth Jack Nesbitt’s (Eric Mabius) shady business dealings. Read on to learn more about this episode.

At the start of their shift, Lieutenant Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) asked his friend, Scott Rice (Warren Christie), if everything was alright with him and was assured that everything was indeed fine.


Inside, a gift basket with an expensive drink came for and Lieutenant Matthew “Matt” Casey (Jesse Spencer) from Jack Nesbitt (Eric Mabius) as an apology, but Casey said that he was done with Nesbitt.

Meanwhile, at the locker room, Sylvie Brett (Kara Kilmer) and Gabriella “Gabby” Dawson (Monica Raymund) discovered that Jessica “Chili” Chilton (Dora Madison) was running out of money. It was revealed that she was pouring all of her savings into “Chilleeze”.

Before Casey could answer Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) who had just called for him over the phone, they were called away. A young boy had fallen off of his bicycle and was bleeding out on the side of the cliff. However, as Truck 81 had gotten there before Squad 3. As they had to get the boy up as soon as they could, Chief Wallace Boden (Eamonn Walker) instructed Truck to do the rescue instead. On the way back, because Otis (Yuri Sardarov) being rude to Rice at the Squad table earlier, the members of Squad 3 began complaining about the fact that the members of Truck 81 currently didn’t have a good attitude towards them as of the moment.

Back at the station, Gabby and Sylvie became worried  as Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg) counseled Chili to hire a more professional artist to make her logo. Severide then came in and told Otis and Jose Cruz (Joe Minoso) about treating Rice with a little bit more respect. He told them that it went for the entire Truck as well. Casey then pulled Cruz and Otis out, who told him about Rice “ducking”. However, Casey told them not to say another word.

Casey then met up with Voight. He had come in person to ask Casey to help them out with an undercover operation against Nesbitt, but Casey refused to work with him.

Gabby and Sylvie then tried to talk to Herrmann about Chili’s financial situation, but he didn’t really listen to them. Gabby then got a phone call from her brother, Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda). He  asked Casey on Antonio’s behalf if he could work with them. They wanted to get Nesbitt as he was involved with trafficking girls out of Eastern Europe to be forced to work for him and the men he was involved with.

Meanwhile, the other members of Truck 81 mocked the drills being done by Squad. Herrmann decided to host a fundraising for Chili at Molly’s so that she could get more money for her product.

Before Sylvie and Chili were called out to help a pastor at a wedding who had suddenly collapsed, Sylvie let it slip to the Chief that something was wrong within the firehouse. Because of this, he called in Casey and Severide, who assured him that they would work things out. However, Casey decided to prioritize the case, and after reconciling with Nesbitt, learned from Katya (Izabella Miko), that some new girls were going to be tried out in an event that Friday, which he had been invited to.

At Molly’s, Chili’s pitch presentation went south after Severide, who had enough of Otis’ lip, decided to go at him. The next day, after Casey implied that he might be blinded by his friendship, Severide tried to talk to Rice. However, they were called to a car fire, where Severide saved Chili, Sylvie and the firefighters helping out the injured man, by stopping a burning car from crashing into them.


Later, Otis promised Boden that he wouldn’t say anything anymore. Herrmann, after suggesting that Chili put Chilleeze on hold for a while, learned that he had reminded Chili of her late father. Because of that, he and his wife decided to give her a no interest personal loan for her product.

Meanwhile, Rice told Severide that his mask had malfunctioned, regardless of what Otis said, and told Severide to just concentrate on being his lieutenant.

At the Chicago Police Department precinct, Craig “Mouse” Gurwitch (Samuel Hunt) gave Casey a phone that had a small listening device on it. At the club, Casey tried going near Katya, but Katya, who looked scared, shook her head and pointed towards the back of the club. There, before he sat down, Nesbitt’s business partners had him patted down. However, Casey became a little bit more nervous as they asked for his phone.
