One of our favorite couples got married on Chicago Fire Season 4 Episode 18, but that's not all that happened!
Below, TV Fanatics Elizabeth Harlow and Stacy Glanzman are joined by super fan Amy Perrin to discuss the wedding, Casey's first vote, and what we would have done in Brett's scary situation.
What did you think of the wedding? Were you worried they might not go through with it?
Amy: I was surprised to see Mouch getting cold feet, and then Trudy, so I was concerned that they wouldn't go through with it. It was rather cute that they were both worried about the exact same thing though. I am happy that that they did get married, but I was disappointed that we didn't get to hear them exchange their vows.
Elizabeth: I wish we could have seen a little more of it, like their vows. But I thought that their respective freak outs were pretty adorable. Trudy was extra hilarious pulling out her falsies, and the burn(s) she delivered to Dawson and Burgess were great.
My only disappointment was with her hair -- I would have liked to have seen her a little more decked out after her years of planning the dream wedding. She looked like she just traded the uniform for the wedding dress.
Stacy: When Mouch started making excuses about his eye and talking about pushing the wedding a couple of months, I got a little nervous he might be pulling a Ruzek. Thankfully they did get married, and I also loved that they were both worried about the same thing.
I too wish we could have heard the vows, and it is funny Elizabeth mentioned Platt's hair -- I was not a fan of any of the girls' hair, except for Dawson's.
Which couple are you most interested in right now?
Amy: Casey and Dawson, but based on the ending I am not sure that they will be a couple much longer. Casey looked devastated when Dawson basically said that she has no interest in marrying him. Well, Dawson, if you don't want Casey, I will happily take him! ;)
Elizabeth: I'm most invested in Casey and Dawson, but I'm intrigued by Otis' new girl. Here's hoping that she thinks he's a piece of prime rib!
Stacy: I am curious to see if Casey and Dawson's relationship will withstand this new development, but I am also enjoying watching the flirtation between Jimmy and Brett. I think they will make a cute couple.
How many episodes do you give Severide and Kidd before they sleep together?
Amy: Probably in the next two episodes, but definitely before the season finale.
Elizabeth: Yeah, that's probably coming sooner rather than later. It should be interesting. We all know that Severide's quite the player, but he's always kept it out of the firehouse. The fact that Stella doesn't seem very interested in a serious relationship should make things extra interesting since Kelly also has a reputation for getting pretty serious pretty fast.
Stacy: I'm with Amy, I'm guessing within the next two episodes, maybe even the next one. There is obvious chemistry building between them.
Casey lost his first vote. Will the frustration get to him, or further motivate him?
Amy: It's hard to say. Politics is so corrupt, and it's pretty clear that Casey would have to compromise on his principles to get anywhere as an alderman. Personally, I hope that Casey decides that it's too much and resigns.
Elizabeth: I love politics, and that's why I find this story frustrating. I don't think the problem for Casey here was corruption so much as he has very little idea of how to go about getting people to vote the way he wants. I would actually find a spinoff that focuses on Casey's alderman position to be really fascinating, especially considering the recent battles between state and local governments in many states. Casey not having a clue would provide both an idealistic tone and a natural entry point for a story.
Stacy: He was definitely feeling dejected after the first vote didn't go his way. I think he was under the impression that he would get elected and start making a difference right away, but that's not realistic. I hope it motivates him to continue working towards change, because it will take some time.
What would you have done if you were Brett? Would you have gone to Boden? The police? Stayed quiet?
Amy: I would have been scared out of my mind, but I am a sharer by nature, so I would have told Boden. Boden is like a big strong Papa Bear, and I know that he would have found a way to protect me.
Elizabeth: I would have gone to the police (they'd be involved anyway what with the dead patient), but probably would've called Boden first. I mean, Boden would have gone directly to Voight anyway, so it would have saved time.
Stacy: Well, one thing I would not have done would be to walk through the front doors of a police station if I thought there might be a crazy person watching me. I would have gone straight back to the firehouse, told Boden, and asked Gabby for Antonio's number.
What was your favorite quote or scene?
Amy: I loved the scene with Trudy, Dawson, and Burgess in the kitchen. Trudy was adorable freaking out, and I laughed when she took out those bra inserts.
Elizabeth: That was a pretty great scene. I also really liked the girls keeping Brett company.They should've invited Burgess and Lindsay though!
Stacy: My favorite was Herrmann's pep talk to Mouch at Molly's, and especially Severide's reaction to it. Whenever Severide does find the right girl, she better be adventurous, because he obviously does not want to spend the rest of his life on the couch eating Rocky Road!
