Shay walks out to the ambulance and apologizes to Dawson for being late. Then she explains in graphic detail the precise move she was teaching Cruz and then she and Dawson hop in the back of the rig to practice. Fine. Dawson asks “Leslie Shay, did you get your blood drawn this morning.” It’s nice but Dawson’s face looks just like it used to when she’d ask Shay if she got laid the night before. Sigh, I miss the good old days. Shay is a day late and got a blood test to see if her eggo is preggo with the spawn of Severide. I’ll just be over here doing my best Juno MacGuff impression “please be negative, please be negative.”
While they are having this chat, Mills lurks in the background. Dawson says they aren’t talking and Shay says Mills is a tool for breaking up with Dawson. Dawson wants to agree but knows that things never work if you can’t trust the person you are with. It also never works when you are dating a guy who is a big baby.
Severide runs up to Mills and tells him that the results of Quidditch try-outs will be posted later that day and, if they’re lucky, Mills will be the new beater and can stop having to clean everyone’s broomsticks for them. Oh stop talking in code you two and just make out.
Herrmann runs up to Severide with a thing around his neck that makes him look like Britney Spears/Brittany S. Pierce. Thankfully it’s not a snake but a pregnancy pillow. Herrmann tells Severide if he gives it the Shay he’ll be her hero. It’s a pillow guys, not a superpower. As he walks away Herrmann says “having a kid, it’s the best thing you’ll ever do.” Which is nice since usually it’s women saying that shit because it makes us feel better about stopping our lives to have them.
The crew is called out to a fire at the prison. Mills is freaking out and Casey tries to calm him down a he did on Mills’ first day. The prison guy in charge has turned off the sprinklers because the inmates were using them to cause trouble. The Chief is having none of the bullshit and asks to have them turned on before he send Casey, Herrmann, Mills, Cruz in to check it out. Mills looks like he might vomit.
Otis is giving Mouch shit about his internet girlfriend from Japan. Mouch is hurt because Mari is coming to visit and he’s a bit nervous to meet her. The Chief gets a call that Herrmann’s wife is in labor and headed to the hospital. Herrmann declines the opportunity to leave the fire because “this will only take a minute.” Famous last words Herrmann.
