Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
Tonight is the beginning of the two-night crossover event between Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, and Chicago PD, and it is bound to be two incredible nights of television from one of the best franchises on right now. There’s something to be said for events like these, where we can see all of our favorite characters from all three of the Chicago shows interact throughout three hours, giving us more of everyone and deeper story lines. We start tonight with Chicago Fire and Chicago Med, with the story wrapping up tomorrow night on Chicago PD.
When we left the fire branch for winter hiatus, we saw Boden reinstated. Patterson chose to transfer out and give Boden back his house, proving he may be a decent guy after all. Severide got his bugles back, and Herrmann was stabbed by Freddie, then left to bleed out in the kitchen of Molly’s. It was such an intense episode for everyone, but the final moment, where Freddie stabbed Herrmann because of a joke he made, was shocking and heart-wrenching. I love Herrmann. Here’s hoping everyone in the bar finally realizes he’s missing before he bleeds to death.
Now for our favorite Chicago doctors, we left them with an emotional episode as well – with a suspected shooting at a movie theatre that turned out to be something different all together. It was a stupid teenage boy who thought it was a funny prank to barge into a theatre waving around a leaf blower to scare people, but one teacher, Miller, shot the boy in fear for his life. There were no other shooting injuries but many injured during the stampede of people fleeing from what they thought was a shooter, including a mother who was trampled to death while protecting her child. The teenager who was shot was on life support waiting for a kidney, and in a twist of fate, the woman who died was a match, and after being asked, her husband donated her kidney but for all the wrong reasons. The husband then confronted the boy and told him that he did it so he’d be reminded for the rest of his life of what he did, and he promised to be there to torture him with the memory of killing his wife as well. While I can see the husband being heartbroken, I felt like his actions were quite extreme and very harsh. As for Miller, who shot the boy, he couldn’t live with the guilt of the mistake he made and he killed himself. Another wasted life. It was a very sad episode, and I applaud the writers for not holding back any punches.
On tonight’s episode of Chicago Fire, “The Beating Heart,” members of Firehouse 51 band together and anxiously await word at Chicago Med after Hermann’s life-threatening stabbing. Cruz urgently works with members of Chicago PD to track down Freddie’s whereabouts when he goes missing. Dr. Choi and Dr. Halstead tend to an attempted suicide victim whose condition raises some eyebrows. Meanwhile, Mouch surprises Trudy, and Chili’s odd behavior has Brett and Jimmy worried.
Then on Chicago Med, “Malignant,” Hermann’s condition takes a sudden turn for the worse, leaving Connor and Toni scrambling to race against the clock. Word quickly spreads that some of Connor’s fellow doctors feel he should have operated sooner, causing tension at the hospital. Natalie makes preparations for her pregnancy, and Nurse April’s brother struggles through his first day at the hospital. Meanwhile, members of the Chicago PD Intelligence Unit help investigate whether the case of a women clinging to life is attempted suicide or murder. As the investigation deepens, a surprising parallel to other patients surfaces.
