Last week’s Chicago Fire was so sad! After beating cancer because of Severide’s bone marrow donation, Anna moved to Chicago to be closer to him. Their relationship was going well until a few episodes ago, when bam! We were hit with the news that her cancer was back and in her bones. Although she tried to push him away, Severide wouldn’t give up. Unfortunately, last week, after they said “I love you” for the first time to one another, Anna opted to go for a DNR order, and when she passed away, there was nothing Severide could do but grieve. It was heartbreaking to watch. Also heartbreaking was the widow (Severide helped save from a burning house) who wouldn’t leave her house because of the memories there. In the end, he went back and helped her save some of the memories so she could take them with her but stay safe. It was very touching but so sad when he told her his girlfriend had passed away.

On a good note, Casey and Boden worked it out so Kannell didn’t have to take the fall for his lieutenant’s error but his lieutenant’s memory wasn’t tarnished either. Then Casey set about convincing him to come back to work, even offering a spot at 51 when Kannell said he couldn’t go back to his house with the rest of his team gone. And finally, Brett had an interesting week… First, she and Dawson helped save a girl who fell while going up a climbing wall after she and her boyfriend broke into a gym-type place. They figured out she had an internal decapitation and got her safely secured on a weird backboard-type thing. Aside from that, when Brett learned Otis and Cruz were looking for a roommate, she convinced them to give her a shot. It was a rocky start, but they eventually seemed to make it work. Fun! LOL

On tonight’s episode, “Sixty Days,” Cruz finds himself in a bad spot when an off-duty incident begins to unravel, prompting Mouch to step in and offer help in hopes of avoiding serious consequences from the CFD. Casey goes head to head with a big politician to get his measure for first responders passed. Lt. Severide makes life difficult for newest team member Jason Kannell (guest star Kamal Angelo Bolden), and Dawson (Monica Raymund) gets an unexpected visit from her father (guest star Daniel Zacapa).

Find out what happens with Cruz tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chopped Junior, NCIS, American Housewife, Great News, Prison Break, Imaginary Mary, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

Tonight, FOX is giving us a double dose of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Last week, in a slightly more dramatic turn for the series, Terry was walking through his neighborhood looking for his daughter’s misplaced toy when he was racially profiled by a fellow police officer. Captain Holt tried to dissuade Terry from filing a complaint and being labeled a whistle-blower, but he ultimately realized it was his duty to help him. However, after filing the report, Terry didn’t get the promotion he had applied for. Was that just a coincidence or as payback for his actions? Meanwhile, Jake and Amy agreed to watch Terry’s kids, but they were unprepared for the questions raised by the youngsters and did their best to avoid them.

While it’s nice to see a comedy tackle a more serious topic once in a while, I mainly watch this show for the humor, and there was still lots of that with Amy and Jake dealing with Terry’s twins. It was fun to get a glimpse of what Amy and Jake’s future could be like if they have kids of their own. I’m looking forward to tonight’s double-dose of episodes as the season gets closer to the end. Fingers-crossed that the series will be picked up for a fifth season soon!

On tonight’s first episode, “Cop-Con,” the precinct head to the Tri-State Police Officers’ annual Cop-Con, which is usually the Nine-Nine’s excuse for a big annual party, but the squad’s fun is threatened this year when Holt asks them to be on their best behavior. Then, in “Chasing Amy,” Jake and Rosa search for Amy, who suddenly vanished hours before taking the Sergeant Exam.

To see where Amy disappears to, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, Imaginary Mary, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Great News, Prison Break, The Flash, iZombie, and The Americans.
