#ChicagoFire 2.05: A power move

So we open with Gabby and Jay who are now clearly, um, together.  Jay says they need to tread carefully seeing as he’s undercover, or something like that.  I’m not really listening because it’s Jay!!!!!  And Gabby!!!!! Sexy times indeed. Shay wakes up in Dangerous Liaison’s apartment looking a little under the weather.  Oh dear, this […]

This week you’re stuck with me, Andrea_Briz, for the recap as Westy’s not been well.  So join me in sending her virtual hugs and cups of soup and get well soon wishes.

Chicago Fire 2.04: A nuisance call

First off, I loved this week’s episode.  There was so much going on – intense rescues, lots of character stuff and a few interesting surprises.  To avoid a recap as long as War and Peace, I’m just going to summarise the main developments. Chez Shayveride: Otis is as happy as a kid in a candy […]

Chicago Fire 2.01: A problem house

It’s sunny in Chicago again!  We’ve gone full circle with the weather.  It’s a bit windy though. (Sorry, actual weather fascinates me because where I live it’s hot and then it’s a bit less hot and then it’s hot again and that’s basically it.)  Anyway, Shay and HHF (Handsome Heroic Firefighter, our name for Severide) are having […]

H50 3.22 Ho’opio (to take captive) – Page 3

Moving forward with the case, Chin is looking at security camera footage from around Ella’s house and he notices that one particular car keeps coming back into view. I think that’s not so unusual as I get lost all the time but actually, it turns out to be Fake Police Officer Helen Cantera (again, this […]
