Spoilers from this week’s episode of Chicago Fireplace, “Down is Higher” may be discovered all through this text. If you have not watched the episode but, I counsel you try certainly one of our different wonderful articles.
NBC’s Chicago-based Dick Wolf exhibits are being interrupted a bit due to soccer and the Olympics this 12 months, which signifies that this week’s “Down is Higher” is formally being billed because the fall finale for the sequence. Which means that quite a bit occurred within the episode: the Hope-based arc labored itself out fairly nicely, a second Molly’s location seems to be imminent, and Stella Kidd had a reasonably intense interval of working public relations. Nevertheless, what we have actually come right here to speak about is that, after weeks of flirtatious conduct between Stella Kidd and her new roomie Kelly Severide, the 2 lastly shared a kiss. Nevertheless, it was a drunken kiss, and Kidd later claimed to not keep in mind it. However is she telling the reality?
At NBC‘s One Chicago Day earlier this week, we sat down with Taylor Kinney, who shared his ideas concerning the kiss. Based on the actor, whereas Stella Kidd might not be wanting to deal with the kiss at this second, it could have meant extra to her than she’s letting on. Per Kinney,
She remembers it!
Producer Derek Haas additionally seemingly confirmed to CinemaBlend that Stella Kidd’s response to the kiss could not have been precisely what it appeared, noting the look on Kelly Severide’s face when she acts like she would not keep in mind a lot after getting too drunk at Molly’s the evening earlier than. Per Haas, maybe Taylor Kinney is on to one thing.
Stella tries to sneak a kiss on Severide. The look on Taylor’s face when she says she would not is form of like [really]?
“Down is Higher” actually was a giant week for Stella Kidd. She’s had quite a bit to cope with these days, as newcomer Hope was mainly gunning to get her out of the best way, and almost succeeded. For a short time, the firehouse needed to cope with a goofy and inept new fireman as Stella Kidd was thrown into the politics of coping with the press in one other firehouse division. The one brilliant aspect to this entire Kidd departing-the-firehouse plotline is that actress Miranda Rae Mayo’s character bought to have a heart-to-heart with Mouch, performed by Christian Stolte, on the intense. That is a pairing we do not usually see, and one which Mayo says she actually appreciated, noting,
In these interviews, they have been asking me for some time, ‘In case you may do a scene with anyone that you have not completed a scene with but, who wouldn’t it be?’ It might be Christian Stolte. He is essentially the most unimaginable actor. He’s at all times the neatest particular person within the room. And I simply have been dying to attach with him. And I feel possibly like a pair seasons in the past, that scene would have been with Hermann. I’m so grateful that we bought to have some heart-to-heart time.
Because it seems, Hope truly cast a signature so as to push Kidd out, and a few sleuthing from Casey and others bought her again into the fold.
In the meantime, Kidd nonetheless bought drunk and kissed Severide, and since there was some romantic pressure between the characters because the season has unfolded, we doubt this plotline goes to chill as soon as Chicago Fireplace is again right into a groove within the schedule. Chicago Fireplace might be again on NBC’s primetime schedule quickly, and even has a giant crossover planned with Chicago P.D. for that present’s 100th episode. Within the meantime, what did you consider the massive second within the episode?
