Chicago Fire Season 8 Recap
Season 8 starts with bad news for Cruz and the rest of 51 when Otis dies while working a fire at a mattress factory. Brett moves away but returns to 51 soon after only to get embroiled in a sour ordeal with her birth Julie. Julie eventually dies, leaving Brett in a troubled state. There is also good news for Cruz and Chloe, who get happily married while Brett and Casey continue their budding friendship. Foster contemplates joining the medical school and appears in an interview at Northwestern. The season witnessed each of Chicago’s bravest facing different challenges thrown their way and left a lot of questions that need answering.

About this show:
From renowned Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf (“Law & Order” brand) and creators Derek Haas and Michael Brandt, the writing team behind “3:10 to Yuma,” comes season four of the high-octane drama “Chicago Fire” — an edge-of-your-seat view into the lives of everyday heroes committed to one of America’s noblest professions. For the firefighters, rescue squad and paramedics of Chicago Firehouse 51, no occupation is more stressful or dangerous, yet so rewarding and exhilarating. These courageous men and women are among the elite who forge headfirst into danger when everyone else is running the other way and whose actions make the difference between life and death.
The pressure to perform on such a high level has a way of taking a personal toll, sometimes putting team members from the Truck and the specially trained Rescue Squad at odds with each other. Despite any differences, this is an extended family, and when it’s “go time,” everyone inside Firehouse 51 knows no other way than to lay it all on the line for each other. Lt. Matthew Casey leads the Truck Company, and brash Lt. Kelly Severide runs the Rescue Squad.
