‘Chicago Fire’ Boss on ‘Major Challenges’ for Brettsey, Boden’s Decision & More
Chicago Fire’ Boss on ‘Major Challenges’ for Brettsey, Boden’s Decision & More.
Is it possible that Firehouse 51 will lose all of Squad 3 on one call? In the Season 10 opener of Chicago Fire, we don’t have to wait long to find out.
Lieutenant Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney), Joe Cruz (Joe Minoso), Tony (Anthony Ferraris), and Capp (Randy Flagler) are all alive and well. Cruz, on the other hand, is about to drown, and Severide must rescue the soon-to-be father. Cruz returns to 51 and is on duty in the premiere after a brief time jump, but his past experiences remain with him. We observe him pause twice while staring at his facepiece — once while going through inventory at the home, and the other during a call — and he has no idea what his lieutenant has done for him until the others inform him. It was no great thing for Severide, he says.
Cruz, on the other hand, is unlikely to be ready to forget about what happened to him anytime soon. “Throughout the first half of the season, this will be a significant storyline,” showrunner Derek Haas tells TV Insider. “With a kid on the way, Cruz will have to overcome a lot!”
While 51 did not lose any members of Squad 3, they did lose their Battalion Chief, Wallace Boden (Eamonn Walker), who was promoted to Deputy District Chief.
The others, for the most part, are ecstatic for him. Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo), who is ready to leave 51 after passing the lieutenant’s exam (she’s simply looking for a home), is concerned about what his departure implies. She adds that he is the reason their home is a family. 51 will never be the same if he goes. Boden attempts to work out of 51, but it’s not going to work.
But, as Boden points out to Kidd, her departure will have an impact on 51 as well.
“With each adjustment, the basis shifts somewhat. “All we have to do now is trust that what we’ve created here will hold,” he adds.
Boden will be in charge of the district, as stated in the premiere. “Boden really cares about the firefighters of Firehouse 51, but he also recognizes that he can bring significant changes to the CFD,” Haas teases. “He’ll strike a balance between the two.”
In the premiere, there’s also some good news for Brettsey fans: Captain Matt Casey (Jesse Spencer) and paramedic Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer) are still together following their reunion in the finale. And it seems to be simple (for now): they’re leaving Molly’s together and dealing with the fact that everyone knows about them. However, as Haas points out, “this is Chicago Fire.” Nothing in life is simple.” As a result, the new couple can anticipate “serious difficulties” in the near future.
Brett also decides that it’s time to do something about the non-emergency calls that have been keeping paramedics busy recently in “Mayday.” Haas adds, “We adore this narrative from her because it tackles a real-world problem.” “She’s going to start this project with someone you don’t expect.”
And for those waiting for the Stellaride wedding after they were engaged in the midst of a fire last season, the showrunner says there’s “nothing to tease yet.” “Through the first half of the season, we’re simply trying to put on the greatest show possible.” Still, we have a hunch there will be some sparks — but hopefully, the arena won’t catch fire!
