‘Chicago Fire’ Episode Guide (April 26): Casey Receives a Surprise in the Mail

“The Last One for Mom” (04/26/16) – Detective Holloway (guest star Jenny Mollen) continues to entrust Lt. Severide (Taylor Kinney) to watch over her young son at the firehouse while she testifies in court as part of an undercover operation.

When the situation takes an unexpected turn, Severide is left to deal with the aftermath. The firehouse responds to a blaze at an art gallery that has a victim trapped inside and prompts Cruz (Joe Minoso) to make a rash decision amid the chaos.

Casey (Jesse Spencer) receives a suspicious package in the mail that casts suspicion on him from the Board of Ethics. Meanwhile, Brett (Kara Killmer) discovers Otis (Yuri Sardarov) isn’t taking care of his own important issues and confronts him, but finds he is stubborn and more interested in rallying the troops to organize a trip to Las Vegas for the annual firefighting conference.

Nick Gehlfuss and Miranda Rae Mayo also guest star in this episode.

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 (Jesse Spencer, “House”) leads the Truck Company, and brash Lt. Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney, “The Vampire Diaries”) runs the Rescue Squad.

The firehouse also includes Battalion Chief Wallace Boden (Eamonn Walker, “Oz”), a fireman’s fireman who recently welcomed a newborn son with his wife, Donna (Melissa Ponzio, “Teen Wolf”). As chief of the firehouse, it’s Boden’s job to keep everything in line and running smoothly between truck and squad. Paramedic turned tough-as-nails firefighter Gabriela Dawson (Monica Raymund, “The Good Wife”) returns alongside Paramedic Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer, “Beyond the Mask”) and seasoned veteran Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg, “Sex and the City”). Dora Madison also joins the cast as spunky, spirited paramedic Jessica “Chili” Chilton.

Also returning for the fourth season are Randy “Mouch” McHolland (Christian Stolte), Jose Cruz (Joe Minoso) and Brian “Otis” Zvonecek (Yuri Sardarov). Candidate Jimmy Borrelli (Steven R. McQueen) is the newest addition to Firehouse 51.

In addition to Wolf, Haas and Brandt, executive producers also include Matt Olmstead (“Breakout Kings”), Joe Chappelle (“The Wire”), Danielle Gelber (Chicago-branded series), Arthur Forney (“Law & Order” brand, Chicago-branded series) and Peter Jankowski (“Law & Order” brand, Chicago-branded series).

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