Chicago Fire Season 3 Episode 7 “Nobody Touches Anything” aired last Tuesday, Nov. 11, 2014, at 10:00 p.m. on NBC. In this episode, Lieutenant Kelley Severide (Taylor Kinney) returned home from Las Vegas and surprised everyone with some very exciting and unexpected news, which left the entire house in shock. Meanwhile, in a bid to generate more money for his daughter’s trip to Washington DC, Rick Newhouse (Edwin Hodge) took on a side project that caused Peter Mills (Charlie Barnett) to worry. Meanwhile, Sylvie Brett (Kara Kilmer) accidentally stumbled upon Joe Cruz’s secret (Joe Minoso), which led to an interesting development for Molly’s 2. The entire fire house also responded to a house fire call, which exposed a case which was brought to the attention of the Chicago Police Department. Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode began with Rick Newhouse (Edwin Hodge) asking for some help from Peter Mills (Charlie Barnett) to unload two whole boxes of chocolates he was planning to sell at the firehouse in order to raise $1,500 for his daughter’s travel expenses as her school’s academic decathlon team was going to go to Washington DC for the finals of the competition. Peter became concerned as Newhouse’s nose had been injured. However, he told Peter that it was nothing and that it had had a “misunderstanding” with someone.

Meanwhile, inside the firehouse, Joe Cruz (Joe Minoso) once again did not succeed in creating a signature dish for Molly’s 2. Lieutenant Kelley Severide (Taylor Kinney) then arrived and went straight to Chief Boden (Eamonn Walker) who was talking to Mouch (Christian Stolte). Severide then informed them that he got married in Las Vegas and needed Mouch’s help for all the insurance paperwork.  In the mess hall, the entire house thought that Severide was joking until they realized that he was serious and congratulated him. He married a woman named Brittany Baker (Serinda Swan), a graphic designer from Florida, whom he had met at the craps table at Las Vegas. One thing led to another and after 24 hours, they tied the knot. Lieutenant Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) went to Severide in the bathroom and realized that he was genuinely happy with what happened. As Severide said that he and Brittany would be staying at a hotel while they looked for houses, Casey told him that Brittany could also stay at their place. Before they could continue their conversation, they got their first call of the day.

Their first call was a team effort, as they had to retrieve a woman from her car which had gone upside down into a ditch by cracking open the frame. Afterwards, Severide shocked everyone by giving the entire house high fives.

Back at the station, Mouch pulled Severide aside to tell him to make sure that his marriage with Brittany was final before putting her name down on all of the documents. However, Severide insisted that was decided. Outside, Otis (Yuri Sardarov) started taking bets on how long Severide’s marriage would last. Joe then asked Severide when Brittany would be coming over, as Severide had said that she was coming. Casey was happy that his friend was finally happy, but his fiancé, Gabriella Dawson (Monica Raymund), was not so sure about it as she believed that Brittany was a stripper.

Inside Boden’s office, he asked Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg) to find out if Severide was truly okay, but Herrmann told Boden that at the present moment, Severide would not be able to listen to reason. They then realized that the only person who could have talked some sense into Severide at that moment was Leslie Shay, his best friend who had recently just died.

Meanwhile, Sylvie made the mistake of asking Peter if there were any Zumba classes in Chicago, as he had no idea what that was. She then confided in him that all she had done in the previous months was wedding planning, working out and making sure that dinner was ready for her fiancée when he got home. However, their conversation was interrupted as they received a call. When they got there, they realized that a woman had been bumped by a man who was high on drugs and that she had reported it as a major injury so that the police would come. However, she was abruptly interrupted as the man who had been high on crack suddenly started seizing. When the seizures finally stopped, he then threw up what he had eaten prior to swallowing the crack, causing the woman and Sylvie to be covered in vomit.

Meanwhile, back at the firehouse, Newhouse got Peter to commit to another job, in which he would once again be the look out as he had to straighten out a little “misunderstanding”. Outside, Dawson made fun of Sylvie, as she had vomit all over her. They were then interrupted as Brittany came with a box full of donuts. After Herrmann declared that they would celebrate the newlyweds at Molly’s that Friday, Severide thanked Gabby and Casey for allowing Brittany to move in with them. This shocked Gabby as Casey had forgotten to tell her about that.

As she was unfomfortable with the fact that Casey had married a virtual stranger, Gabby told him that she felt that he was hiding and was not sure that he was truly happy with marrying a girl he had barely known. However, he told her to check up on how she was feeling first before going around and judging others.

The next day, Peter found it strange that Newhouse had met someone to tell him that he was “done” and then proceeded to put a GPS tracker on the man’s Ford pickup truck.

Later that night, at a bar, Brittany had become pensive and preoccupied, as she had broken the news to her mother. Afterwards, both of them agreed that they were indeed crazy.

Meanwhile, Sylvie got the shock of her life when she learned that the best Yelp rated Zumba class in her area was instructed by Joe. She then struck a deal with him so that no one else would find out about it. She would become the Molly’s 2 cook and that she would teach Joe how to make her dishes. She told him that she wanted to cook for Molly’s 2 and not for the firehouse, as she never wanted to hear the question “when’s dinner ready?” ever again and wanted to cook when she wanted to cook.

Meanwhile, Casey and Gabby’s dinner was interrupted when Brittany and Severide walked to their room giggling and playing around. At the kitchen, Casey admitted that he was a little bit jealous of Severide, who could now go around freely with Brittany in public, while they could not. Gabby seemed to be feeling the same way as well and told him that she is also not fond of the situation that they were in.

The next day, Mouch agreed to fix Severide’s paperwork as a wedding present. Afterwards, Severide promised Boden that he would prove Boden wrong, as Boden had bet that he and Brittany would only last for three weeks.

Meanwhile, Peter confronted Newhouse, as he discovered that his car had been damaged while it had been parked in front of the firehouse. It turned out that the guy he had been tracking down was a fugitive in Wisconsin. If he was able to catch him across the border, he would be able to collect $2,000 worth of bounty money. However, as it was getting too dangerous, Peter stopped Newhouse. Later, Peter told Casey that they needed to help Newhouse out.

They then received a call for a house fire. They were able to rescue the man who had gone back into the cellar, Mr. Andrew Lewellen. When they got him out, he dropped a metal box he had been holding, whose contents spilled all over the floor. After Severide saw some of the pictures, he told Boden to call the police and told him that nobody could touch anything.

Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) and Detective Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush) of the Chicago Police Department then came over. Severide had realized that the pictures were pictures of young kids, who were all victims of a pedophile ring. Voight then made sure that a police officer would be on standby and be ready when Andrew, who was on his way to the hospital, arrives.

Back at the firehouses, the Molly’s team loved Sylvie’s “oven fried ravioli with crispy sage and pancetta” which would become the Molly’s 2 signature dish. Otis then started to raise up the call to make Sylvie their new firehouse chef, but Joe convinced him that Sylvie’s “genius” had to be reserved for Molly’s 2.

At the bar, the entire firehouse surprised Newhouse as they had donated enough for his daughter’s travel expenses.

Outside the bar, both Severide and Brittany looked pensive and thoughtful, as the fact that they were married had just sank in. However, Brittany insisted on going to the party that they had thrown in order for them, as she wanted to ;celebrate being married to Severide. Before they entered, they both admitted that they had “saved each other’s lives”.

At the Chicago Police Department Intelligence Unit, Erin, who had been sorting out pictures of the pedophile ring they had just found, discovered that her half-brother, Teddy Courtney (Lou Taylor Pucci), was one of the victims. In the picture, he had been around 15 years old. Because of this, Voight told Erin to send the pictures to the Manhattan Special Victims Unit. She then spoke to Detective Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) and informed her that she was the half-sister of Teddy Courtney and that she was going up to Manhattan in order to help out in the investigation.
