Chicago Fire

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 22 NOVEMBER -

The Chicago Fire (2012-cur­rent) fire­fight­ing and para­medic teams are pick­ing up where sea­son 4 left off in May 2016. And that means an an­swer to the cliffhanger end­ing with Kidd’s (Mi­randa Rae Mayo) drug­gie ex Grant (Guy Bur­net) hid­ing in the dark with a knife, watch­ing Sev­eride (Taylor Kin­ney) and Kidd after he’d es­caped from a men­tal in­sti­tute. And there’s lots more head­ing our way in sea­son 5…

In episode 1 tonight, the crews are called out to an ac­ci­dent scene in­volv­ing a bus full of school kids. Plus, there is a cross­over from sis­ter-show Chicago Med (2015-cur­rent – see more on p9 and 36) when Oliver Platt’s char­ac­ter Dr Charles gives Kidd a warn­ing phonecall about Grant and his men­tal state.

When it comes to char­ac­ter in­ter­ac­tions, love could be on the cards for more than just new par­ents Casey and Daw­son (Jesse Spencer and Mon­ica Ray­mund), who exec pro­ducer Michael Brant teases “have a strong chem­istry and fans have been wait­ing for a wed­ding…” There’s also some flirt­ing be­tween para­medic Sylvie and fire­fighter Mouch (Kara Killmer and Chris­tian Stolte) after Sylvie of­fers to help Mouch with his erotic fic­tion writ­ing.

But there’s some bad news for fans of trou­bled fire­fighter Jimmy Bor­relli (Steven McQueen). His series-long feud with Chief Bo­den’s (Ea­monn Walker) is com­ing to an early end – in episode 2 (29 Novem­ber) to be ex­act – with Jimmy be­ing badly in­jured and forced to re­tire. “Jimmy needed to stand up for what he be­lieved in, but Bo­den also needed to stand up for what he be­lieved in too,” ex­plains Michael Brandt. “Those two char­ac­ters could not live to­gether. It [Steven leav­ing the show] was driven by the sto­ry­lines and by the char­ac­ter evo­lu­tion.”
