Chicago Fire Season 8 Episode 17 Recap:
The 17th episode of Chicago Fire season 8 features multiple emergency cases and their successful resolutions by the heroic Firehouse 51 team. However, the focus of the week should be on the rescue mission headed by Captain Matthew Casey and Blake Gallo. What happens is, a fire breaks out in an apartment. Casey and Gallo rush inside and see a woman, Jenny, by the staircase with her wheelchair overturned. She says that her son Noah is trapped upstairs and she is unable to fetch him.
The duo rushes up the stairs and finds Noah hidden in a corner. They are able to convince him to come out, and finally, both mom and child are safe. But a neighbor informs the officers that Jenny is unfit to be a mother. She even later calls Child Services to take the child away from Jenny. A frustrated Casey seeks Gallo and Chief Wallace Boden’s help to reverse the case. However, DCFS does take Noah away.
Casey and Gallo, in order to get to the truth, visit the neighbor, who reveals that Jenny lets the roots of her trees grow into her boundary and hence, believes the mother is incapable of caring for her son. Casey then meets up with the DCFS officer and explains how it had affected him when his own child was separated from him years ago. Ultimately, the authorities are convinced and Noah is allowed to return to Jenny.
