Chicago Fire Season 4 Episode 23 Review: Superhero

at .  Updated at .

It was Grant in the living room with a knife on Chicago Fire Season 4 Episode 23.

Except this isn't a game, and Grant is a crazy drug addict. Not a good combination.

From the second Kidd walked into Molly's, I knew Grant was going to be trouble, except I expected him to show up at the firehouse with a gun.

This way is a little more subtle. It does beg the question, which one is he after, Kidd or Severide?

I was actually starting to wonder if there was even going to be a cliffhanger. There always is, but they were wrapping everything else up so nicely. This cliffhanger wasn't a huge one, at least. I'm not going to be on the edge of my seat all summer wondering if Grant is going to kill one of them.

I'm pretty sure Severide could knock that knife out of his hands and take him down in about two seconds flat. He may be a little distracted, but I'm still giving him the edge.

Boden: He made a choice to go back in. I as chief made a choice to let him.
Jimmy: A choice?
Boden: Yeah, just like I made the choice to come in and get you.

Thank goodness the whole Jimmy/Boden situation didn't turn into something major. I was concerned Jimmy would take it too far, but luckily he came to his senses and realized his brother made a choice. I'm glad he stood up for him with his sister-in-law and helped put her mind at ease. 

Blaming Boden isn't going to help anyone. 

Dawson's officially a foster parent guys!

If it means we get to see more of that adorable baby, I'm all for it. He is seriously one of the cutest kids I've ever seen (not including my own nephews of course). 

Dawson's insistence that she do it alone was hard to watch, but I get it. She doesn't want to put Casey in a position he doesn't want to be in. She made this decision pretty spontaneously, and if she had moved back in with Casey with Louie, there would have been no turning back. Casey would be in it for the long haul.

Be honest with yourself Matt I want something that you don't. I'm ready, and you're not. It's not a crime, and it doesn't make you any less of a man.


While she may not have handled it in the best way possible, I actually appreciate that she understands Casey would be doing this for her, and he hasn't had the time to bond with Louie like she has. 

Of course, it's only a matter of time before that all changes, right?

Now that she has Louie, and she and Casey appear to have made up, he'll fall in love with the little tyke, and they'll be one, big, happy family. It's no coincidence that she read the line "we make an incredible family" from her letter right as Casey arrived.

I admit, I wondered for a split second if Casey would go up to Susan's room. I was relieved and very happy when Dawson opened that door. 

Will Casey keep Susan around as his political consultant? She doesn't seem like the type to be embarrassed by his rejection, but Dawson would probably prefer he stop working with her. That offer to run for state senate is still on the table, but that would mean giving up his job as a firefighter. 

This may be the last we'll see of Susan. 

Some final thoughts:

  • Why is Kidd still on the same phone plan as Grant? 
  • Was anyone else worried when Mouch didn't wake up right away?
  • Otis is back already. That was fast, right? 

Well, it's been fun guys. Chicago Fire will be back next fall. Same time. Same place. 

Until then, you can watch Chicago Fire online to get you through the summer. Hit the comments, and let me know what you thought of the season finale!
