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, the first season of FOX’s The Mick comes to a close. Last week, Sabrina decided she wanted to get implants, so Mickey asked the doctor to borrow some implants for a test run, in hopes of dissuading her, but the plan backfired, as Sabrina noticed that her enhanced bosom gave her more looks and influence. They headed to a restaurant, where Mickey assumed that Sabrina would pay, but she had left her credit card with the doctor as a deposit. As they tried to dine and dash, one of the implants fell out, and they tried to find a way to get it back. They called Alba for help, but she showed up high on mushrooms and just made things worse. Meanwhile, Jimmy decided to teach Chip and Ben how to be more masculine by taking them to a baseball game. As Chip headed off alone for a relaxing time in the deluxe suite, Jimmy taught Ben how to start a fight. And the guys he got kicked out were waiting for them outside after the game.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this first season of The Mick. The writers have come up with some pretty wacky situations for these characters, and no matter who gets paired up for the story lines, there’s always a lot of fun craziness that ensues. I’m looking forward to tonight’s finale – will they leave us with some kind of cliffhanger involving the parents returning? Or will it just be one final madcap episode before the series returns next season?

On tonight’s episode, “The Intruder,” in the Season 1 finale, the kids nab a pair of intruders trying to break into the mansion. Later, to protect the children, Mickey must deal with a case of mistaken identity.

Find out whose identity is mistaken and who tried to break in tonight on FOX at 8:31/7:31c.

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, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Prison Break, The Flash, iZombie, and The Americans.

I love when franchises/shows do crossovers. We’ve seen it a lot in the #OneChicago universe, but tonight, we’re not only getting the biggest crossover to date, but they’re introducing the new Chicago Justice, as well! The action will start off in Chicago Fire and move from there into Chicago PD, finishing off in the courtroom with Chicago Justice. But don’t think that just because Chicago Med isn’t on the list that we won’t see the docs and nurses there. There will be plenty of action taking place at the hospital, so as the exec producer said in a recent TV Line interview, it’s like four shows taking place in three hours. But be aware… Tonight’s case is based on the headlines…on the Bay Area warehouse fire from just a few months ago. I trust that the show will treat the memory of those affected with respect, but if it’s something that is sensitive for you, you might want to skip tonight’s crossover.

As for the newest in the strong Chicago lineup, Philip Winchester stars as prosecutor Peter Stone, the Assistant State’s Attorney and Deputy Chief of the Special Prosecutions Bureau. His character has a fantastic tie-in to a great Law & Order character: he’s the son of renowned New York City District Attorney Ben Stone (played in Law & Order by Michael Moriarty). Carl Weathers plays Mark Jefferies, the Cook County State’s Attorney who is more into politics than Stone is. The prosecution’s team also includes Assistant State’s Attorney Anna Valdez (Monica Barbaro), Laura Nagel (Joelle Carter), a tough-as-nails State’s Attorney Investigator, and Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda, who moved over from Chicago PD), a level-headed and by-the-book detective turned Chief Investigator.

On tonight’s episode of Chicago Fire, “Deathtrap,” fire and rescue are called when an old warehouse-turned-work space turns into a firestorm, trapping countless victims; the doctors and nurses of Chicago Med deal with a barrage of patients as victims of the disaster are brought through the doors.

Then on Chicago PD’s “Emotional Proximity,” Olinsky’s daughter is in critical condition following a massive warehouse fire; Voight investigates the fire’s potential origins; intelligence examines connections between the building owner, those who were inside, and potential arson suspects.

Finally, on Chicago Justice’s “Fake,” Peter Stone and his team, including investigator Antonio Dawson, try to bring a warehouse arsonist to justice, and the suspect’s high-powered attorney tries to get his client acquitted.

Catch all the action and drama tonight on NBC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, Criminal Minds, Major Crimes, Property Brothers, Bakers vs. Fakers, & Six.

chicagofire111smallLast week was a busy episode for Chicago Fire. Faced with the possibility of losing foster son Louie because Casey used his position as alderman to jump Gabby ahead in line for fostering, Casey called Susan Weller to help put out the political fire. It worked…but he also figured out that she was behind it all to begin with – she’d set the other alderman on Casey to get him to call her. He’s now threatened her to stay away from him and Gabby, but I don’t know how well that’ll work… Meanwhile, Severide was all about hanging out with rich, party guy Travis Brenner. He even got Travis to stop by Molly’s as a favor to the guys, in the hopes that he would drive more customers, which worked. Of course, not long before Severide was supposed to go off on a long trip across Europe with him, Brenner showed more of his true colors by leaving a woman (who’d nearly died of a drug overdose at his party) outside the hospital on the bench, rather than taking her inside. Severide realized the guy wasn’t good for him and decided not to go on the trip. And finally, Stella met a sick, homeless teenager during a tunnel fire, and she tracked him down – along with help from Chief Boden, the DA, and Ms. Goodwin from Chicago Med – to help get him treatment. It was nice to see that side of Stella after the whole Grant thing (which, by the way, ended in a way that let us see just why Stella had handled it all like she did).

On tonight’s episode, “Nobody Else is Dying Today,” while checking out a warehouse as part of his Alderman’s duties, Casey finds himself in a bad spot when a forklift accidentally pierces a tank storing acid causing an extremely hazardous spill. With a father and daughter in peril, Casey is forced to use extreme measures to remedy the situation. Dawson and Brett respond to an elderly woman who has a difficult senior advocate. Meanwhile, Mouch and Brett continue along with their secret project together, and Otis shares some exciting news as he prepares himself for an unusual expedition. Amy Morton (Chicago PD) guest stars.

Check out the excitement tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, NCIS, American Housewife, Bull, MasterChef Canada, No Tomorrow, Aftermath, Chopped, & NCIS: NOLA.

ncisnola1025smallLast week was a defining episode for Sebastian on NCIS: New Orleans. While his mom was in town, he was kidnapped by a small group of people who wanted his knowledge of virtual reality games (specifically ones where you break out of prisons and locked rooms, etc.) to help break a bad guy out of prison. Sebastian kind of rocked it… He reached out secretly via tablet to Pride when the bad guy left him alone in a room in the prison so Sebastian could start the process to break out the prisoner. After the bad guys nearly got away, Sebastian actually helped take them down after the left the prison. He felt so confident that he asked out the waitress he’d been sort of flirting with for a while.

I didn’t like that Percy wasn’t there last week, especially because Lasalle didn’t know why she wasn’t there. Stupid writers… Giving us shippers some hope and then yanking it away! LMAO Tonight looks like it should be a good episode…an emotional one. I can’t wait!

On tonight’s episode, “Course Correction,” NCIS and FBI investigate a private plane crash in the bayou that killed three sailors. Also, Sonja and Lasalle interview candidates for the team’s open agent position.

See if they can figure out what caused the plane crash tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, NCIS, American Housewife, Bull, MasterChef Canada, No Tomorrow, Aftermath, Chicago Fire, & Chopped.
