So check out all about the episode right below by reading our full recap!
Chicago Fire 10×11: Pelham is questioned after rescue
The episode begins when Severide and Stella are having breakfast. Meanwhile, Violet (Hanako Greensmith) and Gallo (Alberto Rosende) wanted to know about a visit from Brett (Kara Killmer) Casey (Jesse Spencer). She comments that she wished she had stayed longer, but that everything went well. Herrmann (David Eigenberg) and Cruz (Joe Minoso) were having fun with a radio contest and were hampered by Ritter (Daniel Kyri) when the firefighters were called in for an emergency.
At the scene, Pelham (Brett Dalton) worries about the power lines and is left unresponsive to the team. Despite this, Severide is emphatic that they need to act quickly. The team then prepares for the rescue.
As Severide tries to deal with the driver of one of the cars trapped in the accident, the power transformer ends up collapsing and catches fire, generating an unexpected explosion. Mouch (Christian Stolte) also faces a big challenge, involving one of his firefighters who was also in an accident. A woman tries to help him, but ends up not being able to deal with the impasse and the scenario becomes even worse.
The rescue remains a very impactful point within the episode’s narrative, mainly due to the efforts that everyone needs to make to be able to rescue everyone involved, including the team itself. Later, Pelham and Severide talk about the causes of the accident, investigating the transformer, considering that there was no reason for the fire to be caused.
In the team report delivered to Boden (Eamonn Walker), there are some significant disagreements that have him on his toes. In this way, the Chief calls a meeting with everyone who was on site. The problem is directly linked to what Pelham allegedly did to one of the victims named Sarah McBride (Molly Kunz). That way, most of those present are by his side when he is asked about the occurrences.
Stella even assures Severide that she knows the victim and that she will ask her about her view of the facts. The character then meets with Sarah during physical therapy and confronts her about what actually happened during the accident. Parallel to this meeting, Pelham and Severide return to the fire site for further investigation and both are allowed to check the transformer.
Later, the duo along with Stella meet with Boden for new notes, with the latter admitting to having met with Sarah, who, by all indications, can confirm Pelham’s view on the case. Thus, firefighters believe that the accident may have been criminal.
The episode continues with Pelham trying to prove his point, digging deeper into the criminal hypothesis, but without great prospects. It all ends when, that night, Boden visits him at his house and the two drink a beer together, somewhat frustrated with the carriage’s progress.
