A new firefighter arrived, Jimmy got bumped to paramedic, and Casey learned his political run is going to be harder than he thought on Chicago Fire Season 4 Episode 15.
Below, TV Fanatics Elizabeth Harlow and Stacy Glanzman are joined by super fan Amy Perrin to discuss our thoughts on Stella Kidd, Brett's confession, and Casey's tough road ahead.
Elizabeth: I think she's kick ass. I'm looking forward to Gabby having another female friend too.
Amy: Stella seems nice and competent, but it's too soon for me to form an actual opinion on her.
Stacy: She made a good first impression. I like her dynamic with Dawson and it was great seeing her tackle that guy.
What do you think Severide and Kidd were talking about at Molly's?
Elizabeth: Their secret past as ice dancing partners. C'mon, obviously they banged once upon a time. The only women Severide hasn't slept with at this point are those at 51.
Amy: Severide is a real ladies' man, so I am pretty sure that they hooked up at some point.
Stacy: A hook up is the obvious answer and the first thing that came to mind, but I am hoping it's something else.
Will Casey be able to continue his campaign without sacrificing his morals?
Elizabeth: Not without there being a price to pay. He needs a crash course in the non-agreement agreement, stat. Of course, the lobbyist chatting him up would have been dirty enough to think that Casey's no was given with a wink and a nod.
He really needs a professional campaign manager, and to contact his local political party -- if political parties exist in #OneChicago. But this is about to turn into a rant about my biggest TV pet peeve.
Amy: As much as I want him to continue, and become an alderman, I do not see how he can with all the corruption involved. Everyone seems to want Casey to do them favors, and that is just wrong. I think he may need to drop out of the running.
Stacy: Nothing is ever easy on this show, but I would like to see Casey pull off a win by staying true to himself. He's already been approached by corruption, but hopefully there are enough people in Chicago who want to get away from the current corrupt politicians.
What are your thoughts on Jimmy and Brett working together after her confession?
Elizabeth: This is going to be so awkward for Brett. Also, she better hope Chili isn't coming back, because you know those two are gonna hook up. Poor Otis.
Amy: I think that it is going to be awkward at first, but I think they will work well together. They may even become a couple at some point, and I rather like that idea.
Stacy: I'm actually curious if Brett would follow through on her feelings if he reciprocates. She told him about her crush because she thought he was leaving, but she's already done the in-house relationship thing, so even if he feels the same way, I could see her being hesitant.
Should Severide and Cruz have handled their suspicions differently?
Elizabeth: As always, yes. Somebody needs to explain to these guys the "walk softly" part of the Teddy R's axiom.
Amy: No, they did the right thing. Often the right thing isn't always the easy thing, but honesty is always the right thing. The fact that they did handle it the right way led to the injured firefighter's life being saved.
Stacy: I think Severide should have gone to Boden before going to the other firehouse to confront Richter. I know he wanted to get the facts for his report, but he shouldn't have let his chief get blindsided like that.
