Chicago Fire 10×17 “Keep You Safe” is the kind of episode that makes you feel just that — safe. Chicago Fire has had its ups and downs this season, but it’s always good to watch the show and feel like they understand what viewers want, what they are still watching this show for, ten seasons in.
For me, it’s the family dynamics in Firehouse 51, the women, and — yes — my ships. But above all, it’s the reason I came back to this show, the reason I stayed, and the character that made me fall in love with everything else about the show: Stella Kidd. And in this hour, Stella Kidd gets to shine by being just Stella Kidd. Kind. Empathetic. Brilliant.
Everything else being subpar, I would still enjoy the show for her. But in this episode, the things around her also really, really work, so there’s that. And that’s a good thing.
Here are some teases for Chicago Fire 10×17 “Keep You Safe”:
- The storyline with Joe and Chloe and Javi is one of my favorite things in this episode, and one of my favorite things the show has done this season. I got emotional basically every time they were on screen.
- Sylvie might not be around, but this show hasn’t forgotten about the fact that women talk to each other.
- A theory I’ve seen around the fandom this week gets debunked in this episode, and thank God. I didn’t really think it could be true, but I was glad to get confirmation.
- Just …never tell a woman not to panic, okay? Never.
- Violet is the most awkward sometimes, and maybe it’s Hanako Greensmith, or maybe it’s the writing, or both, but she’s always so adorable about it.
- We get a Casey mention this episode, and not from the most obvious person.
- You know what love is? Feeling safe enough to share the ugly parts of your past.
- Kelly Severide wants to kill a man. I will help. Or, at least, I will provide an alibi.
- Disappointed face kills me. Disappointed face from this particular character? I can’t deal.
- The new paramedic is …a lot. Still trying to decide if that’s good or bad.
- Chicago Fire episodes always start with a bang. This one ends on emotion after emotion after EMOTION.
- I have a lot of feelings about Evan Hawkins this episode, and most of them are even PG-13.
- Trust Herrmann to find a way to give the best advice, and the worst advice, all in one episode.
