‘Chicago Fire’ Season 10 Finale: Who’s in Danger? Who May Be Breaking Up? (RECAP)

The Chicago Fire finale should be a happy event, with Matt Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer) back in the city for Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) and Stella Kidd’s (Miranda Rae Mayo) wedding.

But “Brettsey” has to figure out what to do about their long-distance relationship, with her still living in Chicago, and there’s always the question of whether or not a couple will say “I do.”

Plus, there’s the matter of Emma (Caitlin Carver) trying to take Violet’s (Hanako Greensmith) position at 51, to the point that she’s blackmailed Chief Hawkins (Jimmy Nicholas) and demands he make it happen ASAP. So where does the NBC drama leave those storylines in the finale? Read on.  

The Stellaride Wedding The bad news: Severide’s mother may not make it. But “this wedding is for us, not her,” he tells his bride. The (very) good news: Kidd finds them a wedding venue on short notice and they don’t even have to pay a deposit because the couple that canceled their ceremony, freeing up the day, already did.

Firehouse 51 does what 51 does best and works together to make this last-minute wedding happen, dividing up the responsibilities. The best part? Gallo (Alberto Rosende) telling Emma she doesn’t need to worry about helping because she won’t be around. Don’t mess with one of 51’s own. Kidd has her maid of honor in Brett (and a fun bachelorette party in her office, complete with questions like “What is the bride’s favorite position … in the CFD?”).

Plus, she asks Boden (Eamonn Walker) to walk her down the aisle in one of the episode’s best scenes. Most of her “real family is here in the firehouse,” she tells him. “Truth is, you’re the closest thing I’ve had to a father in my life and I was wondering, would you give me away?” Boden looks so touched.

“That would be my greatest honor,” he says. “The wedding would be yesterday and on the moon and I’d still find a way to walk you down that aisle.”

But will the groom make it down the aisle? He’s planning to testify in the drug case he’s in the middle of after the penultimate episode’s call, and one of Campbell’s men is keeping an eye on him … to the point their fight involves the guy pulling a knife and eventually going out a window.

It was clearly self-defense, Detective Pryma (Troy Winbush) assures Severide, insisting he have police protection until Campbell is handled. “This wedding is happening, I promise. I don’t want anything overshadowing it,” so only she and Boden need to know, Severide insists to Kidd. And things are looking up when it seems that Campbell is shutting down his Chicago operation and leaving town.

So, with Casey back after finding someone to cover his shifts — everyone’s happy to see him, and there’s even a “Cap” from Gallo when he first walks into 51 — everything’s in place for the wedding to go off without a hitch … right? Of course not. Sure, Severide and Kidd are “meant to be,” as Casey says when nothing how much his best friend has changed, but they run into a major problem at the venue: The other wedding is back on, and the deposit came from that couple. Herrmann (David Eigenberg) tries to pay the other groom to change his date (“they’ve got serious commitment issues,” he says of Stellaride), to no avail.
