Chicago Fire s07e22 Episode Script

I'm Not Leaving You

1 Olivia said Casey and I were meant for each other.
How do you feel about Casey? That's the thing.
I-I don't know.
When I told you to leave Hubble alone, that wasn't a suggestion.
That was an order.
And you went over there anyway? I was supposed to sit on my hands when I have knowledge that could help? He's not letting this thing go, is he? Maybe you should reach out to him.
I have a feeling you're the one he needs right now.
I'm Lieutenant Kelly Severide with the CFD.
Are you related to Benny Severide? Carol Spears is the arsonist.
She's in it for the chaos.
Someone's gonna get killed.
So whatever we do, we better move fast.
[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] [FOOTSTEPS APPROACH] You're still working on the arsonist case? Carol Spears.
She's in the wind.
No sign of her.
CPD is involved? Intelligence unit is in the middle of something.
Voight said to sit tight and trust the process.
This is the last thing I thought would come out of my mouth, but I wish Benny were here.
He'd chew up some ass over at CPD to have half the department in the streets looking for this lady.
Well, I am not half the department, but I'm in.
What are we looking for? No, you don't have to do that, please.
I'm helping you.
End of story.
Fine.
You better watch out, Herrmann.
Once I get good rolling these hoses, I might join Engine 51.
Start putting out some fires.
Anytime you want to take Clarence's spot, you let me know.
He doesn't mean that.
Hey, Capp.
Your shirt's on backwards.
Thanks.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Ritter! What? You just had an absolutely perfect ball busting opportunity and you kicked it all the way to Wisconsin.
Are you telling me that Capp did something so stupid as to put his shirt on backwards, and you don't light him up? Is there something wrong with you? - [CHUCKLES] - Mouch, help me out here.
Yeah, the situation demands insults.
You can't let Capp off the hook just because you're friends.
Yeah, but you got mad when I was Whoa! [DRAMATIC MUSIC] [WHIRRING] My my mom's about to have a baby! [MOANING] She said drive to the fire station.
You did good.
You did good.
- What's your name? - Cory.
You hurt, Cory? Mmm! My head! - Jump bag.
- Yeah.
This baby's coming.
Turn toward me, honey.
Let me see.
[GROANING] Yeah, it is.
Uh, Foster, grab me the OB kit.
On it! - [SCREAMING] - Mom! Uh, she's good, Cory.
It hurts to have a baby.
Listen, we're gonna put a bandage on that cut, okay? You did good.
You did so good, baby.
[SCREAMING] All right, your contractions are right on top of each other.
What's your name, mama? - Daria.
- Okay, Daria.
Next time I'm gonna need you to push, okay? - [SCREAMING] - Push, push.
How we looking? Hey, how's it going? Uh, you can see its head.
[CRYING] Jump out.
I've seen a lot of grown men and women do a lot of great things, Cory.
You driving this car up here so your mom can deliver your baby brother? It's top of the list.
Baby sister.
Baby sister.
Just wait here.
All right.
Push, push, push.
[MOANING] Keep going.
- Okay.
Okay.
- She's doing good.
[BABY CRYING] Look at you! You did it, Daria.
Oh, it's my baby! Oh! There's my baby.
[BABY COOING] [TENDER MUSIC] See your sister there? You're a big reason she's here.
Mommy and baby are looking good.
Let's get her to Lakeshore, guys.
- Yeah.
- Copy that.
Hey, have you ever ridden in a fire truck, Cory? No.
Well, let's say we follow the ambulance over to the hospital and you ride up front with me, huh? We'll get your mom and baby sister to the hospital safe, okay? - All aboard, 81.
- Let's go.
I'll go grab Kidd.
All right, jump up.
[SIREN WAILS] Got your belt on? Who needs coffee? That was the best morning pick me up ever.
I'll go give Boden a heads up.
See about getting a tow truck out here for the station wagon.
Yo, Ritter, I've been thinking.
- Here we go.
- Yeah.
Hey, Ritter.
You know, as we were watching that beautiful baby take her first breath this morning, it dawned on me that it is part of my job to teach you, like that baby, the ways of the world.
And by that, I mean how to properly bust somebody's balls.
- Mm-mm.
- No, no, no.
Don't shake your head, all right? It is as important to a firefighter as learning how to use an axe or spray a hose.
It is an art form that requires a deft touch.
And we? We're gonna have our first lesson in earnest as soon as Truck 81 gets back here.
[GROANS] Yay! [SIGHS] Feeling okay? Hey, you don't have to stay with him.
We can hang out with Cory until his dad gets here.
Cory, what happened? Where's your mom? - How are you? - Are you mad? What? No.
No, son.
Your son drove his mom right up to the firehouse where he knew there were a lot of men and women ready to help.
I've never seen anything like it.
You did that? Where'd you learn to drive a car? Xbox.
[CHUCKLES] Thank you.
Of course.
- Mr.
Crowell? - Yes? Would you like to go meet your baby daughter? More than anything.
Well, I'm gonna take the truck back to the firehouse before there's any more excitement.
You were really good with that boy.
Just doing my job.
- What? - Jump him already.
Look at your face.
Oh, my God, you're as easy to read as "The Hunger Games.
" Just jump him already and get it over with.
What if he doesn't want me to jump him? Have you seen yourself? You're a freaking 11.
Who wouldn't want you to jump them? Hell, I want you to jump me.
- Hey, I'm back.
- Hey.
- Take a look.
- All right.
Hubble said that while Carol Spears was married to this guy, uh, Doug Denton, he must've helped her control her compulsion, even if he didn't know anything about her starting fires.
OFI ran into this place yesterday to talk to Denton, but he wasn't very helpful.
I mean, he was cooperative, but he's still bitter about the divorce.
Hasn't seen her since she left.
Wants nothing to do with her.
I'll bet you a box of Cracker Jacks this guy knows more than he's letting on.
I mean, he knew her best.
He'd know where she would hole up or what her most likely targets are.
Yeah, but OFI said they were stalemated.
I don't know what Hubble's personal situation is, but, you know, maybe I'd be better qualified to talk to somebody about a rough relationship with an ex-spouse.
Capp said you were looking for me, Chief? Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Come on in.
Do I need to shut the door? Oh, no, no, no.
It's nothing like that.
Um, my lovely wife thought it'd be a good idea to outbid the Hildebrants at Terrence's school auction.
Uh-oh.
What'd you win? Dinner for four at the Palm next Friday.
- Ooh, swanky.
- Tell me about it.
Anyway, Donna says I have to invite someone besides Mouch and Herrmann to come join us.
So grab yourself a plus-one.
Join us for dinner.
Sounds like I need to find a date.
Sounds like you do.
All right, Chief.
Let's see what I can do.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] T-O-P-I-C-S.
Okay.
It would behooves us to start with the basics, right? What you can and cannot attack somebody for.
So, here in the acceptable column, we have what are these people wearing? What are they eating? What are they saying? What kind of hair do they have? Uh, maybe they got a new blemish or a mole.
I could go on and on.
But this is important.
What is not acceptable to attack? [MARKER THUDS ON BOARD] There's only one.
Age.
[CHUCKLES] What? Hey, no.
And race.
And sexual preference.
And, uh, gender.
And disabilities and religion.
Some of those sure, but Age is the key one.
[SCOFFS] No, it is not.
All right, you know what? We're gonna have to do a practice case.
It's like when we drill with those rescue dummies? Okay? [UPBEAT MUSIC] Hey, my brother! Wanna listen to some bitching Van Halen? Okay.
So how many opportunities do you see here? [ALARM BLARES] Squad 3, Engine 51, car fire, 422 W.
California.
Okay.
To be continued.
[SIRENS WAILING] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] Herrmann, someone's in there! [WOMAN SCREAMING] [THUDDING] [CLANGING] [GROANS] Herrmann, hit it! - Send water! - Copy that.
[WATER HISSING] Back me up! [CLANG, SQUEAK] God damn it.
Whoa, Severide.
Look at that.
Gas can.
This girl or guy turned their car into an oven.
What's up, boss? The arsonist we've been after? That's the donut shop where she told Benny she was a victim.
And this is her car.
- Captain Hubble, please? - Hey.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] Hey, listen.
It's Severide.
There's a victim from a car fire headed to the morgue at Cook County.
It was a car found in front of Donut Heaven where Carol Spears first claimed to be a victim.
The car is just like the one she owned.
But, listen, I don't think it's her body inside.
I'm telling you check the dental records.
It doesn't fit for her to go out like this.
Not after 15 years, not after toying with my father for so long.
I will.
Wanna keep working? Yeah.
Brett.
Yeah.
So, uh, I It's not that you're bad at, you know, coming up with clever things to say.
Although that might be part of it.
It's just that I think you just don't want to hurt anybody's feelings.
Exactly.
You didn't become a firefighter to worry about feelings.
Oh.
Perfect! - What? - Insult Brett.
No, I'm not gonna insult Brett.
Oh, sure you are.
Listen, nobody is safe in a firehouse, all right? Even someone as sweet as Sylvie.
What would I even insult her about? I don't know.
Let's think about it.
Uh, it's her turn to make lunch.
It's not me.
We're all hungry.
- Right, Captain? - Leave me out of this.
He's hungry.
We're all hungry.
So go ahead.
Insult her for the lunch.
Okay.
Um how about hey, Brett? My mom always told me never to trust a skinny cook.
So you should not be making lunch.
Aww, you think I look skinny? Excuse me.
You body shaming Brett? Oh, no.
No, no, no, no.
I-I-I-I wouldn't It kind of sounds like you were.
Uh All right, advanced lesson number one.
Don't attack the lamb when a shepherd's still around.
[CHUCKLES] Um, what did you want to ask me? Uh you know what? Let me get back to you.
[BOTH CHUCKLE] [YAWNS] Hey if you wanna call it a night and get some shut-eye I'm good.
You've been staring at that same page for an hour.
I just don't wanna miss some details.
But the last time you had that same look in your eye was after Benny died and we went to hell.
You were tired then.
Trying to do too much.
And I don't like it.
No one else is gonna catch this woman.
[CELL PHONE BUZZING] Hey, this is Kelly.
Are you gonna call CPD? This is an escalation.
Okay, yeah.
That's what I figured.
I will.
Body wasn't Carol's.
It was a homeless woman with a history of drug abuse and mental health issues.
Carol must've lured her to the car, let her shoot up, lit the fuse.
God.
You're right.
No one's moving fast enough on this.
As soon as shift is over, we go to see the ex.
[BIRD CHIRPING] Doug? I'm Kelly Severide.
This is Stella Kidd.
We're with the Chicago Fire Department.
- Fire? - Yes.
Can we ask you some questions? I just talked to the police department and some woman from the arson department or whatever it's called.
The Office of Fire Investigation, yeah.
I don't know what else I can tell you.
No, we completely understand.
But we were thinking we can maybe come inside and talk more casually.
I don't know what you want to know.
Carol and I were oil and water, and we never should've gotten married in the first place.
But my dad had just died and, uh I was in a dark place when she found me.
But you were married 15 years.
Well, it was fine at first.
And and we didn't fight.
It wasn't like that.
It was just like a-a gradual erosion.
You don't even realize your marriage is falling apart.
And then it's over.
Who ended it? I left.
Why? She said things.
I loved her, but she I just felt like I didn't know her anymore.
I I was married to a man named Grant.
He was bad news.
He wasn't able to help himself, and so I spent all of my energy trying to help him.
When I kicked him out, he kept coming back to me again and again.
And every time, worse than the time before.
And I thought about it a lot.
Why? Why wouldn't he just leave me alone? I realized that I was the only person in his entire life that ever tried to make him better.
And it drained me.
Drained me until I-I had nothing left to give.
So I know where you're at, Doug.
And that's why I know that Carol will come back to you just like Grant came back to me.
You are worth more than this woman deserves.
I can promise you that, Doug.
So when she comes back, we need you to contact us.
Because she's hurting other people, Doug.
She is.
We need to find Carol so that she doesn't hurt anyone else.
Doug.
Is she here? [FOOTSTEPS RUNNING] [SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] Carol? [SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] [GLASS SHATTERING] Carol! [GRUNTING] [GRUNTS] Hey! Get off me, you bastard! [CRYING] You good? Oh.
Hey! Okay.
I'm so sorry.
Help me, Doug.
- Help me! They're hurting me! - You need help.
Carol, they're gonna get you help.
Help me, Doug! Now! Doug, call 911.
Now.
Do it.
[GROANING] [SOMBER MUSIC] [INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER] It's just a scratch.
- Be honest.
- It's nothing.
If I'm gonna look like Frankenstein's monster, I wanna know.
Won't even need stitches.
What'd I tell ya? You were great in there.
Just trying to connect so he'd open up.
Severide.
Great work.
I'm just glad it's over.
You know, I'm not sure if anyone would've ever been able to solve this if it wasn't for you.
Ah.
Thanks goes to Benny.
Well, listen.
Someday when you least expect it, I'm gonna convince you to transfer over to OFI.
You have a nose for it, Kelly.
Just like your father.
- Hey! - Hey, Herrmann.
What are you drinking, Mayor? I'm gonna have a I'll have a shot of whiskey.
You got it.
So, hey, I don't know your secret but you look the same going out as you did coming in.
- Hey, Herrmann.
- Yeah.
I've got a phrase up on the fifth floor of City Hall.
Never does a man stand so tall as when he's on all fours kissing somebody else's butt.
- So here's to standing tall.
- [CHUCKLES] Hey.
And to Chicago's police and firefighters.
Their service on behalf of the most American of American cities.
- There you go.
- Thanks, Herrmann.
Absolutely.
Hey, there she is! - Hey! - Hey.
[APPLAUSE] Hey, we heard about you and Severide bringing down that arsonist.
You get to drink free all night.
I drink free every night, Herrmann.
Well, Severide gets a drink half off.
[SIGHS] Where is Kelly? Uh, haven't seen him.
But if you wanna slide me one of them free drinks Herrmann was talking about, I'd be much obliged.
Oh, Chaplain, uh, we are going to the bar.
You want me to grab you something? - IPA.
- You got it.
[CHUCKLES] Are are you here to pat Stella on the back or No, I'm I'm here to see you.
- Oh.
- I wanted to, uh I have some important news to tell you.
Sure.
Of course.
[SIGHS] The National First Responder and Peer Support Initiative has asked me to be their director.
Really? That's a big deal.
[CHUCKLES] It is, it is.
Oh, Kyle, that's wonderful.
[BOTH CHUCKLE] You're a superstar.
Well, here's the bad news.
Um The headquarters are outside of Indianapolis.
They want me to move, like, yesterday.
Oh, really? Do you think that's a-a bad idea? No, no.
I mean selfishly, I'm not happy about it.
But I think they're really lucky to have you.
What is up, Chaplain? Kyle is moving to Indianapolis.
- Um, A-Anderson, actually.
- Really? That's like 30 minutes from where I grew up.
- Really? - You will love it.
Great people in Anderson.
The universe has really conspired to keep us apart, hasn't it? [CHUCKLES] You know, I-I'm gonna I'm gonna get going.
It was good to see you, everybody.
And thanks, this has this has been - Thank you.
- Yeah.
Uh, be right back.
[SOMBER MUSIC] - Hey.
- Hey.
It's, uh, good to see you back with the Chaplain.
What? Uh, no, we're I always liked him.
With you, I mean.
You guys are right for each other.
Both nice, good, selfless people.
You're good together.
Can I get an Old Fashioned? You got it, Captain.
Hey, you seen Kelly? - He came home.
- Mm-hmm? It's a little weird, actually.
You know that notebook of Benny's he's been carrying around? Uh-huh.
He just threw it on the couch and left.
I thought maybe he came here.
No.
[OMINOUS MUSIC] Herrmann, I'm gonna need the rest of the night off.
What? Your shift just started.
[PANTING] You deserve a better man than me.
So I decided I decided I'm gonna be the man you deserve.
[FIRE CRACKING] [SOMBER MUSIC] [DOOR CLANGS SHUT] Morning.
[CHUCKLES] How's it going? Mmm.
It's pretty perfect.
How are we doing on time? Uh, we should shower up, hit the road.
Okay.
[SIGHS] You decided to get this place ready to sell? I'm gonna keep it.
Fix it up.
Make it worthy.
[CHUCKLES] Um Which way is the shower? [CLICK TONGUE] Yeah, no.
I mean you should show me.
[CHUCKLES] Oh.
Morning, glories! Boden pushed the briefing back half an hour.
He's on a phone call.
- Perfect! - Yes! That means we are officially not late.
Sylvie! Sylvie, hey.
I'm glad I caught you.
I wanted to talk to you before shift.
Um, I drove to your apartment, but you were already on the road, I guess.
Um, yeah.
We're we're bells up at 8:00.
Yeah, look, uh, I was thinking about this all night.
I don't want to make a big scene, but, um I spent five months in that hospital bed and I swore I would make the most out of every second if I got through that alive.
- Oh, Kyle - And then you showed up and and I couldn't see what was right in front of me.
- I I don't - I love you, Sylvie.
Your smile changes the temperature in whatever room you walk into.
You have such a-a brightness.
Such a radiance, such a goodness that that I would be the biggest fool on Earth if I let you get away from me.
[ROMANTIC MUSIC] I'm leaving for Indiana tomorrow.
And I am begging you to come with me.
Sylvie Brett will you marry me? - Yes.
- Yes? Yes? - Yes.
- You said yes, right? - Yes.
- Oh, my gosh! [CHUCKLES] Oh, my God! [CHUCKLES] Um, care to share? What's up? I think the chaplain just asked Sylvie to marry him.
- Congratulations.
- Thank you very much.
My God! Hey.
Congratulations.
I just, um It's it's what you said to me, actually.
You said that Kyle and I are right for each other and I really thought about that all night.
And then he showed up here.
[CHUCKLES] Well, I'm I'm happy for you.
Thanks, Matt.
Excuse me.
Whoa, whoa, Chief! [CHUCKLES] I didn't mean to come between you and breakfast.
I mean, it looks like you need the jaws of life to help you fit into that white shirt these days, am I right? Ritter.
