With the mid-season finale still fresh in our minds, Chicago Fire‘s “Smash Therapy” didn’t quite go as we wanted it to. Between Brettsey and Stellaride, it was a very frustrating hour of television. Needless to say, I think we could all benefit from some smash therapy after this episode.
Brettsey and the Gabby Situation
I have never hated those alarm bells as much as I did this episode. Brett and Casey got interrupted by the bells. Because of course they did. I loved their moment last week and I want them together, but they really do need to talk things out first. Gabby was a part of both of their lives, and a big part at that. Things between them are complicated, that’s for sure, but they can’t move past it if they don’t talk about it first.
I’ve never been a huge Dawsey fan. I liked them, and I rooted for them when Gabby was on the show, but they were never my favorite couple. However, Gabby is gone now and Casey has every right to move forward, however he chooses to do so. I’m not hating on Dawson or Dawsey, I’m just saying that on other shows and in reality people move on once relationships are over, so why shouldn’t Casey do the same? I hope that over time Brett and Casey can work things out and really give their relationship a chance. Gabby chose to move on. It’s time for Matt to do the same.
Lieutenant Kidd in Training
Stella Kidd has been doing some incredible things, and I love that they’re paying off for her, and in a big way. From her incredible performance at the leadership conference, to starting Girl’s on Fire, and countless other things, Stella is a valuable asset to 51 and the CFD. I love that she’s finally going after a lieutenant position. She deserves it, and I can’t wait to see Lieutenant Kidd.
Stella Kidd is one hell of a firefighter. She got where she is all on her own. She doesn’t need to be ‘sleeping with a lieutenant’ in order to move up, because she has more talent than probably most of the firefighters in the CFD. It’s frustrating that there are still people out there that think there’s always a different way for a woman to move up. Stella Kidd is more than deserving of a lieutenant position, and she will prove all the haters wrong. You got this, Stella Kidd.
Stand Out Scene
Casey almost falling off the ladder of truck was definitely nerve-wracking. I’m gonna need the Chicago Fire writers to stop endangering our people. But of course, leave it to Gallo to save the day. So much love for Blake Gallo. I felt so bad for Mouch. I hated that he was taking that so hard. Can the writers also please stop shaking Mouch’s confidence? K thanks.
Also, dang you Gorsch! Just when I thought I was done hearing his name. Of course he was too busy kissing up to the commissioner to take Truck 81 in for some simple repairs. But I’m glad Herrmann believed in Mouch and found out the truth. Mouch is a dang good firefighter, and we all know it.
Casey: My feelings for you are real, Sylvie, regardless of Gabby
Brett: There is no regardless of Gabby. That’s the point
Mouch: What happened today can’t ever happen again
Brett: I don’t want things to be weird between us
Casey: I don’t regret it
