Our firefighters went through an awful lot in the first half of Chicago Fire Season 4. Boden was arrested, Dawson lost a baby, and Severide lost his rank. Not to mention Herrmann was not left in the best of shape.
We are revisiting all the drama we've seen so far in our Chicago Fire Midseason Report Card including the best and worst episodes, the craziest conspiracy, the biggest mystery, and more!

It's hard to argue against the action-packed Chicago Fire Season 4 Episode 1 for best episode. Casey was rescued, new characters were introduced, Severide lost his rank, and Dawson told Casey her big news. On top of that, there were two big cases with the crack house fire and Brett and Chili delivering a baby in the ambulance. So much of what occurred in the premiere set us up for the rest of the fall episodes.
Okay, this one was really hard because we honestly liked them all. We didn't give any of the episodes less than a four star rating. Ultimately, we went with Chicago Fire Season 4 Episode 7 for worst episode because Riddle grew even more annoying and Boden continued to make things worse for himself by not letting Voight or his lawyers handle things. Also, we could have done without Otis pursuing Brett.
Our firefighters had some great saves so far this season, but the most intense goes to the family stuck in the elevator between floors. Watching Casey and the father carefully walk across the board to safety had us on the edge of our seats. Thankfully, everyone made it out okay!
Most Obnoxious Couple
Remember the annoying neighbors that moved in next to Molly's? Unfortunately, so do we. They went to great lengths to try and get Molly's shut down, even after Herrmann tried to make peace with pie. Luckily, thanks to some old limestone, Molly's survived, and we hope this couple moved back to Oregon.
Strangest House Guest
This one goes to Donatello the tortoise, heroically saved from a burning RV by Herrmann. While Pouch was not a huge fan of the new house guest, he made for some great comic relief. It took some effort on their part, but thankfully the guys were able to track down Donatello's family and return him safely.
It was heartbreaking when Dawson and Casey lost the baby, and we couldn't help but tear up at Herrmann's touching story. Telling them that he and Cindy miscarried before going on to have five kids was exactly what the grieving couple needed to hear.
