'Chicago Fire' continues to move steadily through its ninth season as we move closer to the end. This week's episode might have been paced slower than normal, but sets up a pretty dangerous situation for one of the main characters as we go into a two-week break before the next episode returns. 

Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) has mostly only been involved in plots related to his will-they-won't-they relationship with Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer), which has been in that situation for much too long. Casey confessed his feelings to Brett, but she was insecure regarding whether he still loved Gabby Dawson (Monica Raymund), who left Chicago a few seasons ago. Nevertheless, it would seem like Brett has moved on, but Casey does not seem to be happy about it.

'Chicago Fire' is known for not shying away from killing off main characters or putting them in really bad situations that they end up having to leave. Will the same happen to Casey? This remains to be seen. Let's take a look at what's happened previously and what to expect when the show returns.

What happened previously?

Right now, the main plot that is being carried forward is Casey's seemingly failing health. In Episode 9 of Season 9 of 'Chicago Fire', Casey was involved in a rescue mission where an impaired driver had caused an accident after his passenger had asked him to pull over. When Casey moves to the driver to ask him to remove his car keys, the driver refuses.


When Casey reaches out to grab the keys himself, the driver presses his foot on the accelerator, and the car moves quite some distance at a relatively high speed while Casey yells at him to stop, hanging off from the window of the driver's seat. The car then hits another car, and Casey is thrown off, hitting his head and rolling to a stop. 

Through the episode, Casey — though he says he is fine — is feeling the effects of his fall. He is dizzy and disoriented and grows more so as the episode goes on. When Eamonn Walker (Wallace Boden) asks Casey something, he is not able to answer as quickly. Things get complicated when he is asked to help clear out his uncle's bank locker, which could contain files regarding his mother. 


Casey continues to ignore his symptoms, but when he approaches Brett for help, she is called into an emergency. In the meantime, he deals with the Rolex watch he finds in his uncle's bank locker and learns that it is worth $80,000. 

Meanwhile, Firehouse 51 could see a change in its paramedic yet again. After Gianna Mackey (Adriyan Rae) completes her training, she is asked by the chief of another firehouse to transfer to his as there will be a vacancy and the firehouse could use her Spanish language skills. Mackey decides to take up the opportunity to transfer.


When will Episode 10 air?

'Chicago Fire' will be going on a short break after the ninth episode. The show will return with the tenth episode of its ninth season on Wednesday, March 31, at 9/8c on NBC.

What to expect from Episode 10?

The synopsis for the next episode states, "A series of suspicious fires send 51 on a search for the cause. Casey continues down a troubling path. Mouch is looking to make his long-awaited dream come true."


We suspect that it will be Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) who will be in charge of investigating the fires again. We hope he works with Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) for this one.

What worries us is that Casey's future seems to be uncertain. He has not had a good season and it seems like things will just get more difficult for him as he continues to deal with his injury and the trauma about his mother.
