OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS

CLUES AS TO WHERE SERENA MIGHT BE ARE UNCOVERED THAT COULD TURN BODEN’S CASE AROUND AND CAPTAIN PATTERSON HAS NEWS FOR EVERYONE

Members of Firehouse 51 are less than thrilled when Captain Patterson (guest star Brian White) steps in as replacement for Chief Boden (Eamonn Walker) while he deals with clearing his good name. When Severide (Taylor Kinney) learns of the potential whereabouts of Serena (guest star Ilfenesh Hadera), Chicago P.D’s Officer Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins) and Officer Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger) head to Lake Carlyle to try and uncover additional clues on Boden’s case. Meanwhile, Herrmann (David Eigenberg) and Otis (Yuri Sardarov) give Freddie (guest star Ralph Rodriguez) a job that keeps him close by and Jimmy (Steven R. McQueen) and Chili (Dora Madison) elicit more attention then either bargained for, causing some friction between them.

Jesse Spencer, Monica Raymund, Kara Killmer, Joe Minoso and Christian Stolte also star. John Seda, Rachel Nichols, Melissa Ponzio, Mark Hengst and Fredric Lehne also guest star.

 

In Chicago Fire, for the firefighters, Rescue Squad and paramedics of Chicago Firehouse 51, no occupation is more stressful or dangerous, yet so rewarding and exhilarating. These courageous men and women are among the elite who forge headfirst into danger when everyone else is running the other way and whose actions make the difference between life and death.

Chicago Fire is a production of Universal Television and Wolf Films for NBC.
