Show: Chicago Fire
Episode Title: A Coffin That Small
This week in television, Greg a.k.a. Owen confronted Regina on Once Upon a Time, Peter offered Diane a position as judge while Alicia told Will they had to be over on The Good Wife, Carrie and Walt had a heart-to-heart about his sexuality on The Carrie Diaries, we got an awesome episode about Ryan on Castle, Nick’s father died and Jess was Elvis on New Girl, Anne and Ryan liked the same girl on Go On, Severide and Shay were adorable on Chicago Fire, and we all fell in love with the idea of Skye and Jeff together on Cult
There were four episodes of television that really stood out to me this week. Each episode brought with it strong character development and lots of heart but this week’s honor of episode of the week goes to the show that made me the most emotional – Chicago Fire.
Chicago Fire is easily my favorite new show of the season. I love the characters and I love that the show is really about the characters and their passion for their jobs, rather than the job itself. That was particularly evident in this week’s episode which gave us a little more insight into the station and the surrounding neighborhood.
Best moments: The ending. Seeing the neighborhood all come out to pay their respects to Taye was really moving, especially seeing everyone in their dress uniforms to honor the boy who wouldn’t get to grow up to be a firefighter.
Other stand-out moments in this episode: Shay and Severide’s friendship. I am so glad that her dad is paying for the insemination because I didn’t like plan B and obviously, Shay wasn’t wild about it either.
Dawson telling Mills that she was going to help him make squad and that she wasn’t going anywhere.
Hermann’s face when he realized that his dad really was proud of him.
What I didn’t love: Mouch and Otis’s bet. It didn’t really add anything to the episode and it was brought up too many times for my personal taste.
