‘Chicago Fire’ Episode Guide (Oct. 18): Casey and Dawson Find Themselves in a Political Mess

“A Real Wake-Up Call” (10/18/16) – Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Dawson (Monica Raymund) find themselves unexpectedly caught in the middle of a potential political mess. Stella (Miranda Rae Mayo) is left to make a serious decision about her ex-boyfriend.

While responding to an auto accident, members of truck and squad find themselves in the middle of a dangerous situation. Elsewhere, Severide (Taylor Kinney) befriends a famous socialite (guest star Scott Elrod) that might distract him from his duties at 51, while Brett (Kara Killmer) and Mouch (Christian Stolte) set aside their writing differences for the greater good.

Oliver Platt and Colin Donnell guest star in this episode.

From renown 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 five 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. The firefighters, rescue squad, and paramedics of Chicago Firehouse 51 risk their lives week in and week out to save and protect the citizens of their incredible city.

This is an extended family and everyone inside Firehouse 51 knows no other way than to lay it all on the line for each other. Lt. Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) leads the Truck Company and brash Lt. Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) runs the Rescue Squad.

The firehouse also includes Battalion Chief Wallace Boden (Eamonn Walker), a fireman’s fireman. As chief of 51, Boden keeps his house running smoothly and his firefighters prepared to overcome all adversity. Paramedic turned tough as nails firefighter Gabriela Dawson (Monica Raymund) returns alongside Paramedic Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer), seasoned veteran Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg) and resourceful firefighter Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo).

Also returning for the fifth season are Randy “Mouch” McHolland (Christian Stolte), Joe Cruz (Joe Minoso) and Brian “Otis” Zvonecek (Yuri Sardarov).

In addition to Wolf, Haas and Brandt, executive producers include Matt Olmstead, Joe Chappelle, Arthur Forney and Peter Jankowski.

“Chicago Fire” is produced by Universal Television and Wolf Entertainment.
