Chicago Fire 3×06 ‘Madmen and Fools’: I’m an anaconda man myself

Chicago Fire - Season 3

I think this is one of the only episodes, if not the only one, that didn’t involve any fire at all but it’s rife with awesome quotes like the one in the title. I think Nicki Minaj needs to write an extra verse about a firefighter named Kelly. I’m more than a little upset and confused as to why they would leave us with such a strange ending right before the triple crossover with Chicago PD and SVU. I fully expected Sylvie to come to Vegas and surprise Severide while playing craps, but this new love interest could be important to a storyline involving Severide and Erin Lindsay in two weeks. However, that’s only if she turns out to be from Chicago or Kelly decides to bring her back to save her from an abusive pimp or something.

We were also left with another mystery involving Newhouse and the man that jumped him outside his home. I’m racking my brain as to how this could be relevant to the crossover and unless his assailant’s case involved a sexual crime it’ll most likely be swept under the rug until later this season. Last but not least, I felt like Dawson’s victory at the drug dealer’s house came a bit too soon but I suppose Herrmann isn’t done training her yet. He undoubtedly has a lot more hoops to make her jump through before he’ll let her off her leash.

The situation with Casey’s sister and her scumbag ex-husband did wrap up this week, just in time for the crossover. There’s not much to say about that or the CPS case, other than the latter brought Sylvie and Severide closer together. I know, you thought I was done talking about Severide’s love life, but I really would like to see him with a nice girl like Sylvie. That’s not to say that Erin Lindsay isn’t sweet, but she’s a Chicago detective and Sylvie is a small town girl from Indiana so she has that extra girl-next-door quality about her.

What did you think of this week’s episode? Will Severide bring the mystery woman back to Chicago? Why was Newhouse attacked? Let’s discuss in the comments below!

    I loved seeing Severide and Brett work together. I agree with you – I’d love to see him with a nice girl like her. With the exception of Lindsay, I have not been a fan of his past love interests.

      I know, right? I feel like she could be the kind of girl to bring him out of his funk!
