Chicago Fire (2012–…): Season 1, Episode 15 - Nazdarovya! - full transcript

In order to help her brother, Gabriela contacts an old enemy, even though this could ruin her friendship with Casey. Herrmann retaliates when Arthur, the silent partner from the bar, ...

- Let's go!
- What'd you take?

Dawson, track marks.

- Previously on Chicago Fire...

- Last few weeks have seen
a spike in fatal overdoses.

We are now approaching each overdose

as a potential homicide.

[baby fussing]

- Clarice Carthage and Leslie Shay?

- Yes.
- You've been served.

- What is it?
- Petition for full custody.

- You two know each other?

- I was engaged to Eric's sister.

- The number you have reached
is no longer in service.

- You were a coward then,
and you're a coward now.

- Before this goes any further south,

why don't you walk away?

- You're to be in this house
from 9:00 P.M.

to 9:00 A.M. every day.

You are not to associate
with any known criminals.

- What are you doing?
- I'll be back before my curfew.

- don't worry about it.
- I'm worried, mom--

- I am not going out to sell crack!

- I've never seen you like this before.

- there's this new crew out of New York.

Those who don't pay, their girls
are getting hit with bad dope.

That's who I'm trying to bring down.

[tires screech, gunshots]

- Antonio!

Somebody help!

Try not to move.

You're gonna be all right.

You're gonna be fine.
[honk Honk]

Hey! Hey! Stop!

[tires screech]

Gunshot wounds
to the abdomen and left chest.

Exit under the arm
caught the axillary artery.

- I'll take over on pressure.
- He's my brother.

I'm going into the O.R.
with you.

- Can't do it.

Got it.
Somebody grab the monitor.

Let's get him down the hall into four.

Go, go, go!

- He's all cleaned up, daddy.

- Oh, no, I'm not the--
I'm not the--I'm--


Hey, guy.
Hey, buds.

- Daddy.

- Hey, bud.

[electronic chime]


- Dawson.

What happened?

Oh, baby.
- [crying] I don't know.

- I'm not happy
about our fight last night.

It's important to me
that we communicate.

- I agree.

- I get the sense you weren't too happy

about me going out
with my friend Gary last night.

- It had nothing to do
with... Gary.

I was worried about my mother
violating her parole.

- Fine.

Can we...
agree to trust

each other?

To discuss things like two adults?

- Yeah.

- I'm happy to hear it.

Eat while they're still warm.

- You know something?

You're right.

If we're gonna live together,

we need to get things out in the open.

So I'm gonna ask.

Why'd you do it?

- Now you're just being hurtful.

- No, I'm asking a question
I need the answer to.

In 15 years, you've never told me why.

What made you go over to dad's?

- You always do this!

- He was really cagey.

We were talking
right before it happened.

- Listen, he's--

he's lucky that you were there.


- Pete, it's fine.
She knows.

- [chuckles]

- Is he out of icu?

- No, not yet.

I'm gonna go to the hospital
after shift.

- All right.
I'll go with you.

- Hey.

I just heard.

How is he?

- Uh, he lost a lot of blood,

so they're still doing transfusions.

- [sighs] I'm so sorry.

Your brother went

so above and beyond for me
with the Voight thing.

If there's anything I can do,

just let me know.

- Thank you.

- Uh, chief wanted me to tell you

there's a police detective
here to see you

in his office
for some follow-up questions.

- Okay.

- Dawson, come on in.

This is detective Dan Vikan
from narcotics.

- Very sorry to hear about Antonio.

We got damn near every cop
in this city out looking

for who shot him.
- Good to know.

- Antonio was looking
for the Leader of the crew

that's been putting out the bad drugs.

He talk to you about that?

'cause I know you had
a conversation with him

right before he was shot.

- He said that guys

from narcotics were being territorial

and didn't want a guy
from vice taking his collars,

so he was doing twice the work.

- [chuckles]

Let's have an honest conversation.

- Let's.

- Your brother went way
off the reservation on this one.

- You told me you were here
to investigate

the shooter, not investigate Antonio.

- It's all related, chief,

and unfortunately, the first step

is to try to sift
through eight layers of lies

he told his superiors and colleagues,

myself included.

- I'd trust my brother with my life.

I don't know you from a load of wood.

- Your boss has my card

if you decide to change
your mind and help.

- I honestly don't know anything

about what's going on with Antonio.

- Okay.

- Morning.
- Morning.

- You still work on boats?

- Yeah.

Boater's key.

- You probably already got one, right?

- Always use another.

- I was out of line last shift.

So, uh, that is half a peace offering.

- Accepted.
The other half?

- A bribe.

- [chuckles]

these things cost 7 bucks, man.

- Fair enough.


Now that I know what really
happened between you and Renee,

I'm thinking she's probably
been letting the guilt

beat her up this whole time.

I got no right to ask this,

but I think if you reached out to her,

it could go a long way
towards turning things around.

'cause like I said, man,
we don't hear from her.

Look, this is her cell number.

At least I think it is.
It's a computerized voice.

I've left messages--

- Eric, I don't even
really know what I would say.

So maybe it's just best
to leave the past in the past.

- Maybe even just hearing your voice

might make a difference.

- [sighs]

- Hey, Chow's up.

[dog whines]

Hey, hey, don't you even think about it.

[dog whimpers]

- Shay, this is that baby book
I was telling you about.

Lots of good stuff, swaddling, soothing.

- Thanks, Herrmann.

Hey, do you know if it says
anything about sleep schedules?

- I didn't read it.

- Hmm.

- All right, you're our guy
for construction

on the new bar, right?

- I believe the offer
was free consultation.

- Okay. All right. Fine.
- Yeah.

- the inspection is tomorrow,

and then our new silent partner
is coming over here later

for a meet and greet.

We just gotta make sure that this guy

knows that we're driving this car.

- Go easy.

Extra partner means lower cost
for the rest of us.

- I'm with Herrmann.
There's an old japanese proverb.

Don't let your daughter-in-law
eat your autumn eggplants.

- What the hell does that mean?

- Don't let yourself
be taken advantage of.

[station alert]

- Engine 51, truck 81,

ambulance 61, possible drowning.

[sirens blaring, horns honking]

- There.

- We were playing

and all of a sudden, Patrick fell in!

- Please, help my son.

- How long's he been under?
- Three minutes, maybe more.

- Let's get
that straight-frame

to the edge of the lake right now.

- Exactly where did he fall in?
- Right here.

He came up for a second.

Then he went right back down again.

- Keep feeding me line
until I hit bottom.

Then allow 6 more feet every
time I tug twice, all right?

When I tug three times,
I've got the kid.

- Please, god, please...

find my boy!

[Indistinct radio chatter]

- All right, he's at the bottom.

Three tugs!
He's got him.

- Medics, get ready.

Mills, go with the ambulance as backup.

- Right.

- Oh, my god.

Is he alive?


- Let's put him in the rig now.

Pushing epinephrine.

Shay, check for lung sounds.

- Yeah.

- Come on, Patrick.

- You're in.

- Let's do a pulse check.

Come on, Patrick.
Come on.

Wait, Wait, Wait, Wait, wait, wait.

Wait a second.
- What?

- I have a pulse.

- Wait, are you sure?

- Yeah.

Yeah, pulse, it's--

- Bp's 60 over 40.

- Hey.

- Hey.
How's the kid?

- Good.
- Yeah?

- Yeah. Got him warmed up.
His bp is stabilized.

- Lieutenant?

- Hey, I just heard the news.
That's great.

- Yes.
Thanks to you guys.

I just want you to know, uh...

I didn't--

my son was in that water,

and I froze.

I-I did nothing.
- Sir--

- I don't know why I just stood there.

I wanted to move,
But my feet wouldn't--

- Listen to me.

I've been to thousands
of accident scenes,

and you never know any given day

how someone's going to react.

- Yeah, but I did nothing.

He's my son, and I did nothing.

- That's cold, dangerous water.

You went in there,
we'd have been rescuing two.

- If you hadn't shown up--

- But we did.

And now your boy's gonna be fine.

And you're gonna be here
to take him home.


- Okay.

- Let me handle this.
- All right.

- All right.

- Hey, Arthur.

Sorry for the wait.

- Ah, not a problem.
I appreciate what you guys do.

- All right, we wanted to open
up the lines of communication

and let you know our perspective
on the whole partnership thing.

- So, uh, with the latino girl,
we're four, right?

- I think
that's actually "Latina."

- Oh, yeah, sorry.

Look, I'm no math major,

but partnership-wise,
that's 25% stake each, no?

- Whoa, whoa, whoa.
No, no, no.

The old man definitely did not
say equal partnership.

He said take care of you

based upon what you brought
to the table.

So construction, hauling,
initial investment.

- I don't have a lot
of out-of-Pocket money

to do any investing.

- We're not talking 25% then.

- Okay, sure.

Yeah, yeah.
No, I-I get your point.

- Listen, let's just see
what you bring to the table.

We'll see how it goes,

and we'll make sure that it's fair.

- Sounds great.

Uh, look, I gotta get back to work,

but I'll see you tomorrow
at the inspection, huh?

- Yeah.
- Okay.

- [laughs]

- Hi there, little guy.

- You know, Daniel's planning
on using the fact

that I was in therapy

and on antidepressants as proof

that I'm mentally unstable.

- Screw Daniel.
We're strong enough.

We'll handle whatever he throws our way.

- Well, the lawyer did say
there was another option.

- What?

- We could offer 50/50 custody.

- Clarice.

- I know Daniel will take it.

You know, and then we
can just end all of this

and focus on being a family.

- Hey, you.


[background chatter]

- Knock, knock.

- Hey.
- Hey.

- I'd be dead, you hadn't been there.

- No, you'd have crawled
your way to the front door.

- Has anybody come talk to you?

- Uh, some detective
from narcotics named Vikan.

- Yeah.
He's after my badge.

- He's saying you've gone off the rails.

- Look, this started out

as prostitutes getting
a hold of bad dope.

That's a vice case,
which is why I got involved.

Then it turned
into the bad dope being dealt.

That's when narcotics came in.

- Hey--

- Then it became about that new gang

that I was telling you about

trying to push their way in
and take over.

- [inhales]

Laura and the kids?

- Department's putting them
in Protective custody

until they catch who tried to kill me.

- Have they been threatened?

- There's been some hang ups
on our home phone line.

- If this was all about gangs,

there is one cop
who could have helped out.

- Don't even think about it.

[keys jingling]

[metal clanking]

[chains clinking]

- [clears throat]
Uh... my name's Gabr--

- I know who you are.

What the hell do you want?

- My brother, Antonio Dawson,

he works in vice--
- Yeah, yeah.

He's the guy who put the cuffs on me.

You tell him I said hi, okay?

- Okay, well, this involves him.

So if you've got your panties in a twist

over how he does his job

and that's a deal breaker for you,

you just say so, and I'll leave.

- Continue.

- [ahem] He's investigating
some bad dope

that's been dumped on prostitutes.

Uh, it's
about some new gang--

- I've heard all about that.

- He was shot a couple days ago.

But this is more than just him

and his family still having
a bull's-eye on their chest.

Girls are dying out there.

If my brother was willing to
risk his life trying to stop it,

I'm willing to risk mine
trying to help him.

- My ex-partner
had a thing he liked to say.

"What was the first thing Adam said

when the good lord
dropped him in Eden?"

"What's in it for me?"

- You know, I came here
on the off chance

that, despite what happened,
you might still care

about trying to prevent people
from dying.

I don't know
what your jail situation is.

As a former cop,
I'm assuming you're segregated.

So... maybe by helping out,
that would go a ways

to getting you some better...

uh, I don't know, accommodations?

- Then this conversation
becomes about favors.

- Okay.

- Okay what?

- Okay, you help me, I'll help you.

- You're gonna wanna talk
to a guy named T.T.

He operates

out of a two-story on the corner
of 27th and State.

And I wouldn't advise you come
knocking for him on your own.

- Well, I can take care of myself.

- Fine.

Just tell him Voight sent you.

You're looking for someone
to testify about the red hooks.

That's the gang your brother
was trying to take down.

T.T. owes me.

And he's motivated because the red hooks

are trying to move in on his action.

- Yeah, okay.
All right, got it.

Got it.

- I'll be seeing you around.

- Thanks for your help.

- I don't get this inspector, man.

This bar's been here for 30 years.

The old man said he never had a problem.

- Shut up.

So how's it looking?

- Unfortunately, we have issues.

Main one being the layout.

Your kitchen and bar area
are too close together.

- Mr. Stephanides said
that you've always approved it.

- Ah, Well, see,
that's a different situation.

Mr. Stephanides and I
had an understanding.

- Huh, okay.

Let me handle this.

[clears throat]

- [laughs]


- What are you, posing for a calendar?

- It's called a football hold.

- Oh...

Thank god he looks like Clarice.


was he crying?

- No.
Not too bad.

- I must have been out like a light.

I'm so sorry.

- No, it's fine.

I don't mind.
- [yawns]

- Hey, this attorney
you guys got--

- Mm-Hmm?

- Do you think he can locate people?

- Like?

- Like Renee...


- Really?
- No, it's not like that.

Eric came to me,
asking if I could reach out.

I guess they've all tried and failed.

He gave me a cell number.

I left a message, but...

maybe if I just showed up

I don't even know
why I'm talking about this.

- You're talking about it
'cause it might help.

- What would I even gain from this?



- I mean...

today at the hospital,

you reached out to some father
you've never met,

But, uh, you don't wanna try

and help out someone you almost married?

- Uh...

my name's Gabriela.
I'm looking for T.T.


- Why you asking around about me, bitch?

- [whimpers]

- Voight.
Detective Voight.

He told me to come see you.

- You a cop?

- I'm Gabriela Dawson, firehouse 51.

I need your help.

My brother's a cop,
and he was shot last night.

Girls are dying from bad dope.

You know this because they're
trying to move in on you.

Voight told me that you can get somebody

to testify against the red hooks.

- You come around here again,
I'ma blow your head

clean off.

Do you understand me?
- [whimpers]

[footsteps departing]

[door shuts]

[low chatter]

- Renee.

- I will be right back.

Kelly Severide.

- Good seeing you.

How you doing?

- What brings you?

Or is this just one hell
of an awkward coincidence?

- No, um...
I'm working with Eric

at the same house, 51.
- Oh?

- And he asked
if I'd come--

- I'm doing fine.

Is that what you came to find out?

- I guess so, yeah.

- Well, your question's
been answered then.

Thanks for your concern.

♪ ♪

- This is probably gonna come
as a surprise to you.

Jail visitation logs are monitored.

Certainly those concerning
dirty ex-cops.

I got a call.

Several, in fact.

What's my response gonna be, Gabby?

- [sighs]

I went there to see if Voight

would provide any help
with the Antonio thing.

- Gabby.

I can't do anything
about what you do off shift,

so I will save my breath.

I will give you a bit of advice.

The news on this is gonna travel fast.

Sure as hell got to me quick.

So you may wanna bring in

a certain someone from this house

before it gets on the grapevine

and he forms his own opinion.

- They tried to kill Antonio,

and for all I know, they may
still wanna finish the job.

Plus all those O.D.s--
- Voight tried to take me out.

He's a liar and a crook.
- I know.

But sometimes you gotta,
you know, dance with the devil.

- Really?
Is that the way it works?

- Casey, I didn't feel like
I had any other choice.

I'm sorry.

- Hey, just do
what you need to do, okay?

I hope it works out.

- Hey, Eric.
- Kelly.

- So, um, I saw Renee.

- You're kidding.
- No.

- that's great.

Or was it?

- Yeah. No, she's--
she's doing fine.

- Where'd you find her?
- This bar she works at.

- Cocktail waitress?

- Basically, yeah.

- She good?
She happy?

- Yeah, she seems happy.

- Thanks.
- Mm-hmm.

- Hopefully I'll hear from her.

- Hope so.

- Big day.

We just heard the news.
- Congratulations.

- I think a toast is in order here, huh?

This is

vodka my parents Brought back
straight from the homeland.

Now, Herrmann and I

are on duty, so we can't imbibe,

but don't let that

stop you.


- um...

I'll pass.

Here, you just, uh,
sign where the "x" s are,

and you'll be all set.

I want to apologize

for any misunderstanding.

I'll get these
into the system right away,

and you'll get
your fully executed copies

in the mail shortly.

- I was thinking

about our first conversation

about what it is I bring to the table.

I bring a lot of intangibles,
I think they call it.

In fact, I'd say

I bring 25% worth.


- You gotta stop this now.

You wanna get shot too?


let the investigation play itself out.

- I think I just ruined a friendship.

- with who?

[Station alert]

- Truck 81, squad 3, battalion 25,

ambulance 61, house collapse.

1600 block, North Poplar.

[sirens blare]

- The ceiling fell in!

It sounded like thunder.

- We're gonna take a look.
Stay back.

- Our upstairs neighbor,
he's a crazy hoarder.

Keeps all these magazines
and newspapers.

We could hear the floor
creaking for months.

- Have you seen him?

- Ma'am, will you move to the corner?

This building is compromised.
Everybody proceed with caution.

- Main level collapsed
into the basement.

Can't get in from here.

Where's the entrance to the basement?

- the door's open.

Oh, my god, my daughter Goes down there

with her boyfriend sometimes.

- Okay, we're going in.

Truck and squad, get all the
airbags and cribbing we have.

Get it out here now.

[wood creaking loudly]

- We need to create a tunnel
using airbags and cribbing.

We'll slide 'em in one by one,

and then we'll use
the cribbing as support.

Severide, you're in front.
Call out the line.

- All right, Casey, Herrmann,

Capp, Cruz, Hadley, Mills,
you guys are with me.

The rest of you guys,
up to feed the line.

Let's go.

[loud creaking, cracking]

More cribbing.
- Cribbing.

All right, up on yellow.

[motor humming, wood creaking, cracking]

[indistinct radio chatter]

- Send the Stokes basket
down the tunnel.

- Stokes basket.

- You guys okay?
- Yeah.

Yeah, I think so.

- Oh, baby.
Oh, my baby.

- There you go.
She's okay, mom.

Got banged around a little.

- There's a young woman
in the briefing room.

Says she wants to talk to you.

- You Gabriela?

- I am.

- T.T. told me
to come here.

- I'm glad you did.

- And I can trust you?

- You can.

- 'cause I'm not playing around.

All right, if I'm gonna help,
I need assurances.

I need to get out of town
for my testimony.

They'll kill me in a second
if they knew I was here.

- Whatever you need,
it'll be taken care of.

You have my word.

What do you know?

- Everything.

[low conversation]

- Hey, partner.

- Arthur...

I wanna come clean with you.

All right, the thing is,

I got a checkered history

in terms of business investments.

Some people,

they hoard broken junk.

Well, I hoard broken opportunities.

My point is

is that I'm really looking forward

to owning this bar.

It's an investment opportunity

that I truly believe is gonna work.

- So what's the problem?

- You're the problem.

You're a bully.

You use threats and violence
to intimidate people,

so if you wanna have at it

and smash up my legs

just like you did
that poor bastard inspector,

then have at it.

I mean it.

- Is that right?

- I'm a firefighter, Arthur.

I see a lot of things that, believe me,

you don't wanna see.
I don't get squeamish.

Instead of 25%, you get 1%.

1% of what I foresee
as being pretty solid profits.

All for doing nothing
But walking away from our bar

and staying away.

- I'll expect my 1% monthly.

- Any word back yet from Daniel
on the 50/50 offer?

- No, not yet.
- Oh, he'll take it.

It's the best deal
he's gonna get, and he knows it.

- Well, Wesley is gonna have

a good man in his life, regardless.

- that's nice of you to say.

All right, well, there you have it.

I can keep it in my room until
you're ready to swap it out.

[phone rings]

- You sure Renee seemed okay

when you talked to her?

- Yeah.

- I just got a call from a hospital.

She took a bunch of pills.

- I told you not to go Gabby on this.

- I know you did.

- Captain just told me
your girl gave a full statement,

including the identity of the shooter.

- This ends it, right?

- Well, it should.

But what did you promise Voight?

- Uh, I told him I'd return the favor.

Whatever that means.

- You're in bed
with this guy now, gabby.

- Hey.

Someone tried to kill my brother.

If you mess with my family,
you mess with me.

I don't regret what I did.

- I love you.

And I'm proud to be your brother.

[phone rings]

[phone beeps]

- I'm so sorry, Matt.

Ron and I just kinda lost track of time,

and something happened with his car.

I don't know, it had something
to do with the clutch.

And it broke down on us right
on the eisenhower, of course.

We had to call the tow truck,
go to the service center.

Do you want me to get
the driver's card and--

Or the receipt?

- Yeah.
Get 'em for me.

- I don't know why I even bother.

- You got two weeks to find a new place.

- What?

Where am I gonna live?
Where am I gonna go?

- I don't know.

You got two weeks to figure it out.

- He chipped away at me, you know?

[keys clatter] Every day.

Your father.

He convinced me that,

not only wasn't I a worthy mother,

I wasn't even a worthy person.

I believed him.

Then he started to do it to you.

Every day another sidelong comment,

another criticism.

You remember it.

I know you do.

You started to internalize it,

and my worst fear
was coming true--

that he was gonna do to you
what he did to me.

So that night he called,

we argued...

and he said something about you.


so cruel.

And I snapped.

And I went, and I got the gun

out of the box
that he kept in the closet.

And I took the house key
that you left out.

And I drove across town.

And I shot him.

Just to shut him up.

Just to never hear those words
coming out of his mouth again.

I know what you're thinking.

I know what you thought.

But I know you, Matthew.

You don't have that kind
of anger inside of you,

that ability to completely lose control.

You're not me.

And I think that's
what you really wanted to know.

[wolf howls]
