However, after the truth was revealed, several changes were made in Truck and in Squad. Meanwhile, Lieutenant Matthew “Matt” Casey (Jesse Spencer), who agreed to help out Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) and Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) in their case against Jack Nesbitt (Eric Mabius), found himself neck deep in trouble, which was discovered by Gabriela “Gabby” Dawson (Monica Raymund), who had gone to his place after she discovered something that would change their lives forever. Read on to learn more about this episode.
The episode picked up from the previous episode, with one of Jack Nesbitt’s (Eric Mabius) associates frisking Lieutenant Matthew “Matt” Casey (Jesse Spencer) for a wire, and checked his entire cell phone. Afterwards, he entered the van where Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) and Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) stayed. He told them that it was a good thing that he had flushed the wire down the toilet. He had gotten a bad feeling before going to the meeting. He then told them that they were worried about ATF.
At Firehouse 51, Scott Rice (Warren Christie) informed Lieutenant Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) that he wasn’t a “ducker.” Casey then confronted Severide and told him that the firehouse hadn’t been the same ever since Rice came.
Before the shift, Otis (Yuri Sardarov) noticed that his best friend, Joe Cruz (Joe Minoso) was a little bit quieter than usual.
They then got a call as a mailman had smelled a gas leak in one of the houses. Severide and his team then decided to check the back. Casey and his team checked the gas levels at the front. However, after learning that the owner of the house had gotten back earlier than expected, Severide ignored Casey’s warnings and decided to go in. Casey then sent Otis to close the gas meter. He decided to break the windows so that the house would be vented, and Severide got out just in time.
This caused Chief Wallace Boden (Eamonn Wallace) to stop Severide from telling Otis that he had no right to be inside. After they got back, the entire Truck team sat down on Squad 3’s table, who decided to put gas in the truck.
Meanwhile, Jessica “Chili” Chilton (Dora Madison Burge) and Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg) after discovering that Chileeze had just arrived for Chili, and that it worked. Later, they staged an elevator break down so that Chili could talk Scottie Pippen into being her celebrity endorser for Chileeze, which he agreed to.
Casey then met up with Boden, Voight, and Antonio. Casey told Boden that he was going to ask for a shift off to help them. However, unknown to him, Nesbitt saw him with Voight and Antonio.
As Casey walked off after the end of his shift, he told Severide again that he was becoming blind to the truth because of his friendship with Rice. Gabriela “Gabby” Dawson (Monica Raymund) then told Casey to be careful and revealed that she didn’t feel well.
At Stilettos, Nesbitt asked Casey if he had been approached by the police or ATF, which Casey denied. Nesbitt then told him that there would be another meeting at five in the afternoon the next day. He asked Katya (Izabella Miko), to come to him as he needed to talk to her about something.
Meanwhile, back at the firehouse, Boden asked Rice to come to his office. There, Severide revealed that he had discovered that Rice had lied to him and told him that he wasn’t ready to be a firefighter. His reason was that he was worried about making his son an orphan. Because of this, he was fired, and Cruz, who had passed his squad certification test was now on the squad. This meant that Otis was now the driver of Truck 81, and Boden would act as lieutenant of Truck 81 while Casey wasn’t there.
They were then called to a warehouse fire where Cruz rescued two firemen while Severide went back inside. Meanwhile, Gabby managed to save a civilian but decided to go out front as she couldn’t get back out. However, she suddenly ran out of air, and the building began to burn faster. Boden then ordered his house not to enter the building and ran inside.
Cruz then stood up against another Battalion Chief who had ordered that the main line, which Severide and Dawson, who had found each other inside, were using to get some air. However, that chief ordered the line to be shut, and just as they thought that their friends were lost, Boden came and got them both out.
That night, at Molly’s, Chili cried after learning that someone had beat her to the market, and Sylvie Brett (Kara Kilmer) ended up hooking up with Officer Sean Roman (Brian Geraghty). Otis then congratulated Cruz.
Gabby, who had realized something, ran back to her apartment, and after discovering that she was pregnant, went to Casey’s apartment, only to discover that it seemed like a fight had gone on inside and discovered Katya dead on the floor.
