Chicago Fire - S7E22

In the latest episode of Chicago Fire, titled "I'm Not Leaving You," Severide and Kidd find themselves diving deeper into a puzzling arson case from Benny's past. As they uncover unexpected news, Brett is faced with a major decision that leaves her contemplating her future. But just when you think things can't get any more intense, all hell breaks loose.

Now, let's address some of the comments from fans. While the show has certainly had its fair share of dramatic moments, we have to agree that praising a 10-year-old for driving a car is not the way to go. Safety should always be a priority, and it's essential for parents to plan better in order to avoid potentially dangerous situations.

Another recurring theme that has caught the attention of viewers is the on-again, off-again relationship between Severide and Stella. Will they finally break the pattern of their will-they-won't-they dynamic in the next season? Only time will tell.

And lastly, it seems that not everyone is a fan of Ritter, a relatively new character on the show. Some viewers long for the return of Mills from the earlier seasons. Let us know in the comments who your favorite character is and why!

The episode was rated 8.12 from 853 votes.
