Oh come on, Stella. Violet? A jinx? There’s no way. I, for one, am glad that she’s at 51. She belongs at Firehouse 51 if you ask me. I can see why she came to that conclusion at first, though. That was one crazy shift! Which is appropriate, giving that that’s the title of the episode. That being said, I’m glad nothing too crazy happened in Chicago Fire‘ 9×10 “One Crazy Shift”.
Welcome to 51, Violet
Violet’s at 51, y’all! Brett personally requested Violet to be her partner, and I love that so much. I know we’ve seen Violet before, but I’m so glad she’s back and in a more permanent role in the show. I love how Violet was welcomed with open arms by everyone at 51. Well, everyone but Gallo, that is. It’s adorable how nervous he gets around her. I’m glad that Brett took Casey’s advice and went after the partner she wanted.
I really hope that now that Violet’s at 51, we get more Violet and Gallo scenes. More of their romance, in particular. I loved Violet and Gallo as a couple, or whatever it is they were. Their banter was just so funny, and their chemistry was undeniable. I’ve always preferred Gallo with Violet over Gianna, and I’m super exited to see what happens now that they’re both at the same firehouse.
Thank you, Will Halstead, for explaining to Casey that you don’t mess with head injuries. But YOU ALREADY KNEW THAT, Casey. Or at least you should have. Need I remind you of the last head injury you had in season two? Casey is stubborn as hell, but I love him anyway. I can’t help it. I’m just glad he’s finally seeking medical advice from someone.
I’m glad Casey is finally seeking some help, but maybe don’t refer to the person in question as “a friend”? I don’t understand why Casey won’t just admit that he needs help. Maybe he’s just worried about his career ending, but there’s more important things than that. Regardless, please tell me that Will talked some sense into Casey and he’s going to get the help he needs now and go sees a dang neurologist.
Mouch and The Audition
I just about died of laughter when I learned that Mouch’s dream was to play in a band called “Pipes and Drums.” That’s such a typical Mouch thing. And an even more Mouch thing is the fact that he stored his bagpipes in a locker called “Baggs.” “Dreams need lockers too, Joe”. I can’t. It’s too good. This entire storyline had me dying of laughter.
I love the comedic storylines in Chicago Fire. We don’t get much comedy in Med or PD, so I’m glad Fire gives us a little bit of comedic relief. And this comedic storyline might be one of my favorites. Maybe not my all-time favorite, but it was pretty good. The comedic storylines are usually some of my favorites, and this one did not disappoint.
Stand Out Scene
I loved the Brettsey scene we got this episode. It was so sweet and pure, and it reminded me why I love Brettsey so much. Brett really needed to hear those words, and I think they meant even more coming from Casey. Her partners do leave because she lifts them up. She’s a great leader, and it’s about time she realizes that.
However, I about rolled my eyes when Casey said that she deserves to be with whoever she wants to be with. She wants to be with YOU, you dumbass. You could tell by the look in her eyes. And maybe he was referring to her being with the partner she wants or maybe he was hoping she’d say that she wants to be with him, but come on man. I just…ugh. Regardless, I was dying that entire scene.
Gallo: I get weird when I’m around her.
Casey: They leave because you’ve lifted them up.
Mouch: Dreams need lockers too, Joe.
Will: You don’t mess with head injuries.
Casey: You deserve to be with whoever you want to be with.
Brett: That’s my fourth partner in four years.
Gallo: How can your firefighters look out for their captain if he’s withholding information from them about his own situation?
Boden: This isn’t a truck you’re driving. It’s a bomb.
