The witchy number crunching actress sure plays her part well. I can't stand that character!
I agree. I don't think he's "doing this to his son", but I do think having his son there is part of his 'cover'.
There have been many unexpected things come up. Go back one week . . . . would you expect the widow of a fireman to drink and drive right after the man she has feelings for tells her to BE CAREFUL?
Maybe it is the guy who was terminated because of the racial slurs/pranks, but I'm not putting all of my eggs into that basket. If it's the 'new guy' then the writers are definitely running out of ideas. Surely they can be more creative than that.
Or maybe it's the guy that his girl slept with in Spain?
It could also be the girl who accused him of sexual misconduct. We were to believe she ran off with her tail tucked between her legs when Severide found the other guy who she also accused. Maybe she's come slinking back into town . . . . . .
echo, the snitch's name is Clarke. I am so used to hearing their last names being used, that I did a double take when Benny Severide called Shay/Shea? Leslie.
Had no idea that was her first name. I was distracted when the coming attractions aired. What happened with Shay and Dawson?
Enjoyed this epi a lot. Had to sniffle a bit when Matt took the boys to see their mom in jail. How awful for all of them! Normally, I can't feel any sympathy for someone who knowingly gets behind the wheel after having a few too many and drives, let alone kills someone, but it being Heather, and knowing the loss she and her boys suffered, I still feel terrible that she is in jail. Ooh, never saw that coming with the spy in the bar. Guess that is the last we will be seeing of him. Felt bad for Cruz seeing foreign accent blondie drive off with Severide. At that moment I knew he would not take the 3rd bedroom in Severide and Shay's apartment. No way he could compete with Severide in the house for women. I felt badly for him as he seemed to really like blondie.
I'm awful with names of the newbies too. I still don't know the name of number cruncher, and "The Bitchy Woman In Charge Of The Budget" is a little wordy, so I've just taken to calling her Snitchette. I'm hoping - now that Herrmann threw down the gauntlet - that the guys start a rumor just for the sake of having Snitch take the info back to Snitchette. Hopefully that will signal an end to both of them.
"Foreign Accent Blondie" is - I believe - a cousin to Otis' (or Brian if you prefer!) I'd like to think Severide was just taking her home and not taking her back to his place. She's been there ever since Molly's opened. I'm guessing that if she wanted to see what all the fuss was about, she'd have offered him a peek under her babushka while Renee was in Spain. And speaking of taking her home, there was no mention whatsoever of Severide's new ride. He just gets into another classic muscle car and drives off, apparently done grieving over the one the pyro torched. Most men who owns cars like that keep pics of the automobile in their wallets.
I'm hoping the scene with the ice cream means that the Darden boys are gonna give Casey a break now and start behaving in a more civilized manner towards him.
Still not really convinced it's Hadley starting the fires, although he sure is making himself look like a suspect. Might just be that he enjoys getting inside Severide's head. The scene where Severide Senior was describing an arsonists personality has me suspicious. Glad the Chief said what I was thinking!
Number cruncher's name is Gail McLeod. The actress who portrays her is Michelle Forbes. Some of you might recognize her if you watched The Killing. She played (excellently I might add) the grieving mother on the first two seasons of the show.
I am not sure Hadley is behind the fires either. It all seems a bit too convenient.
