Chicago Fire Season 9 Episode 3 Spoilers
There is no official synopsis provided yet by NBC for the next episode of ‘Chicago Fire’. But as far as we can guess, the show might see Stella Kidd take the lieutenant’s exam while newbie Mackey adjusts to life at the Firehouse 51. We can also expect to see Casey and Brett trying to figure out where they stand with each other.
Chicago Fire Season 9 Episode 2 Recap
After Brett and Mackey survive their ambulance crash, Brett and Casey share an awkward moment where Brett almost confesses her feelings to him. Later in the episode, Casey goes over to Brett’s house and they kiss. Just as we think these two are finally going to be a couple, Brett asks Casey if he is completely over Gabby (his ex-wife and her BFF). Casey is unable to answer this question favorably and so Brett hits the break on the Casey-Brett romance train.
Elsewhere, Mackey doubts if she is the right fit for Firehouse 51 but Joe Cruz convinces her otherwise. Chief Wallace Boden is impressed with how well Stella’s Girls on Fire program is going and advises her to take the lieutenant’s exam. Ritter gets his moment in the sun and is hailed a hero when he puts his life in danger while rescuing a woman from the train tracks.
