Chicago Fire (2012–…): Season 10, Episode 17 - Keep You Safe - full transcript

Severide and Kidd work with CPD regarding a suspicious car wreck. Hawkins and Violet's relationship is in jeopardy. Chloe and Cruz adjust to a new family dynamic.


- And we said
no special treatment.

We have
to keep it professional.

- I saw one of your medics

making out with Chief Hawkins.

What's that about?

- CFD brass.

That was
the deputy chief paramedic.

He wants to see me
in his office

first thing tomorrow morning.

- His name's Javi.
He's only ten years old,

unaccompanied immigrant,

and he's kind of
latched on to me.

I know that we don't have
room here for a ten-year-old

but we have room
in our hearts.

Okay, I made PB&J again.

Javi says he likes it, so--
- Uh, yeah, that's fine.

I am taking Otis into daycare
a little early today.

- English.

- Do you know...fracciónes?

- Yeah, I do. Here.

I think I do.

You know, let--
let's look at this later, okay?

'Cause we're running late.

- Cuanto tiempo--

How long will you
take me to school?

- Well, uh, we have a meeting
with your case worker

in two days,
and, uh, then we'll find out

how long you'll be here.

- Miss Melissa said
maybe an aunt

is there for me?


- Uh, yeah, um,
that's one of the things

they'll tell us.
- Okay, you two.

I have to wake up Otis.

Okay, here we go, eh?

Okay, let's go,
let's go, let's go, let's go.

- Wait, what do you mean
the jury is still out?

Like, literally a jury?

- Basically, yeah.

It's an official complaint.

I gave
the deputy chief paramedic

my side of the story,
and now a whole bunch

of white shirts meet
and, uh, decide my fate.

- Ugh, Evan,
this sounds serious.

You said this was
just a frowning matter

not a firing matter.

- It turns out
it depends on the complaint.

Let's not panic just yet.

- No, I am panicking now.
When do they meet?

- I have no idea.

- I--I hope
that you don't get, uh--

can reschedule my appointment

with--with Dr. Baldwin.
- I'll wait for you.

- Um, I'm gonna need
the full work-up

or, you know, I--I freak out,
so that would be great.

- Violet!

Chief Boden is looking for you!

- Got it.
Um, so yeah, let me--

let me know if anything
opens up, okay?

I gotta run.

- I'll catch up
with you later.

- Okay.

- Hey, Cruz, wait up.

- Hey, what's this?

- Eh, Cindy, she put together
a bunch of clothes

that the boys had outgrown
for Javi.

I know--I know he lost
everything in that fire.

- Thank you, Herrmann.
Javi will love these.

- So how's
everything going with him?

He's a great kid.

Truth is, me and Chloe
are getting pretty attached.

But it's complicated
'cause, you know,

he's anxious
to find a relative,

and the case workers,
they're out there looking, so--

- Uh, good morning to you.
- Good morning.

- Violet.

Come on in.
Meet your new partner.

- Emma Jacobs.
Great to meet you, Violet.

- Same.
- Emma's been working

out in Glen Ellyn
for a few years.

She just transferred to CFD.

- Oh, well, you are gonna love
the action here.

- Ambulance 61, Squad 3,
Truck 81...

- And on cue.

- Motor vehicle accident,

of Kedzie and Ogden.

- Just one vehicle involved?
- Yeah, it was crazy.

They had to be going
100 miles an hour

when they hit that light pole.
- Give us some space.

Give us some sp--

Where's the rest of it?


Hey, hang tight, all right?
Help is on the way.

All right, squad,
extricate these two

while we figure out
what happened

to the rest of this car.
- Yeah, will do.

Hey, Cruz, grab the Hurst.
- Copy that.

- Okay, 61 to Main, give me
a three-ambulance response.

Get a C-collar on this guy.
- On it.

- Not entirely joking,

did the rest of it
just disintegrate?

- I think it went that way.

- Hey, whoa.

Gallo, Mason,
you go get the backboard

and the Hurst tool, all right?
- Copy that.

61, I got another victim.

- Copy, 61.

- She's alive.

- Just relax, okay?

You've been in an accident.

All right.

- Okay, let's get
this collar on you.

- Cruz, we're never
gonna get this door open.

- Maybe we can pull him out
through the back?

- Yeah, let's get
the driver out first.

We'll get a better look inside.
- Copy.

Hey, man, can you swing
your legs around

nice and slow?
- Yeah.

- Okay.
- Yeah.

- Here you go.

Easy, oh, whoa.

Easy, easy, whoa.
- No, no, I'm good.

- No, no, no.
Take a seat here.

- There you go.
Just relax, okay?

We'll do all the work.

- Good?
- Yeah.

- All right.

Guys, help me
peel back the windshield?

- Yeah.

- ETA on that backboard?

- Coming in, Lieutenant.

- Here we go.

- Lieutenant, this door?
- Yeah.

- All right. I got you.

What's your name?
- Adriana.

- Pretty name.
My name's Stella.

- W--where are the others?

- They're about 100 feet away.

Back at the intersection.

But hey, let's not worry
about them right now, okay?

Let's just focus on you.

All right?

- Breathe in through you nose.

- That's good, that's good.

- Okay, very good.

Gonna put a C-collar on you.

All right.

Mason, I need
your long webbing.

- Take a few deep breaths.
A few deep breaths.

- I got it, I got it.
- Okay.

- It's okay.
- All right.

- I know you feel
okay right now,

but that is because you have
a lot of epinephrine

through your blood stream,

which is also known
as adrenaline.

You could be hurt
and not even know it,

so I need you to stay put,

All right,
I'm gonna get a listen.

Can you breathe for me?

- Paramedic chief is here.

- Uh, yeah, can you
bring him up to speed?

- Uh, sure,
but you're the PIC.

- I'm just gonna check
on the passenger.

- Jacobs, where are we at?

- Uh, we got the driver out.

There's still one more victim
in the front seat

and another in the back
which is, like,

way the hell over there.

- Ready, Cruz?
- Yup.

- His injuries are
beyond the scope

of medical intervention.


- We got a broken arm,

and possible head trauma.

- Okay, 61, take her to Med.

I got two more ambos
on the way.

One will take the body
to the coroner,

the other will take the driver.

- Where's the driver?

- I don't know,
he was right there.

- We got a runner.

- The car is registered
to a Luke Weber.

It hasn't been reported stolen.

Is this our runner?

- No, that looks like the DOA
in the passenger seat.

- Really?
- Yeah, you can check

with the coroner,
but either way,

that's not the driver.

- You guys got, what,
half a dozen

firefighters on the scene
and nobody sees

this guy walking away?
- Hey.

We were a little busy.

- Look, I didn't smell booze
on his breath,

the medics didn't think
he was on anything.

He was a little rattled,
but we didn't think

he was gonna bolt.

- So what's the story here?

If not a DUI, they weren't
fleeing from the police,

not a street race,
why are they trying

to break the sound barrier
on south Kedzie?

- Run of the mill stupidity?

- Stupidity could
get him manslaughter,

no wonder he ran.

Where'd the other survivor
end up?

I'll see what she has to say.
- Chicago Med.

- Thanks.

That was pretty heavy.

- What was?

- The call we were just on?

Where the car was
ripped in half

and the front passenger
was DOA?

- Oh, yeah. Crazy.

So what was up with you
avoiding Chief Hawkins?

- I--I wasn't avoiding him.

- He seems okay to me.

I know some people think
he's kind of uptight.

You don't like him?

- I like him fine.

- It was like a giant
tore the car in half

and threw the pieces
in the opposite directions.

I've never seen
anything like it.

- I've seen a handful
of those in my day,

but not this bad
and never with survivors.

- What's wrong?

- That was Javi's school.
They want me to go

to a parent-teacher conference
after shift.

- Oh, that can't be good.
- Mouch.

- He's right.
When you get called in,

means the kid done wrong.
Trust me.

- I don't know how to handle
something like this.

Otis doesn't get in trouble.
- Because he can't talk yet.

into a whole new world now

with a kid Javi's age.

- Hey!
- Hey.

- Looks like the, uh,
woman from the crash

is gonna be okay.
- Yeah?

- Yeah, she just has
a concussion,

no internal injuries.

They're gonna keep her
for a few days,

but I think she should be fine.

- Oh, good news.

She could have had it
a lot worse.

- No kidding.

- Thanks, Vi.
- Uh-huh.

- Lieutenant.
- Hi.

- Sorry I kept you waiting
on that webbing.

- It was two seconds.

I wouldn't call it
a fireable offense.

- I'm gonna work the kinks
out of my system.

It won't happen again.

- I'm gonna show you
a little trick

that I picked up
from Captain Casey.

You always put
your long webbing

in your left pocket.

All right?

- That's a great tip.
- Mm-hmm.

- I'm gonna set it up
that way right now.

- All right.

- Yeah.
Thanks for the update.

Hey, so that cop, Hedrick?

He says the woman
in the back seat

can't remember
how the accident happened

and that everything's a blur.

- Did she ID the driver?

- No, I guess she only
really knows the deceased.

The driver's just
a friend of his.

- Well, I found this
in my coat pocket.

- Not yours?
- Uh, good luck withdrawing

1,000 bucks
from my checking account.

- Looks like blood.
- Also not mine.

Look, the withdrawal was made
this morning,

15 minutes
before the high-speed crash.

- How'd it end up
in your coat pocket?

- I mean, it didn't fall in.

I think that woman
put it in there,

but why?


- Adriana?

Uh, you remember me? Stella?

- Yeah, um, hi.

- Hey.
- Hi.

- How you feeling?
- Okay.

- Ah.
- Yeah.

Thank you.

Well, f--for rescuing me.

- I was just--
just doing my job.

I, um...

I think this might be yours?

I found it in my coat pocket
after, um, the accident.

- It's not mine.

Did they catch the driver?

- No, not yet.
- Hmm.

- How did Luke know the guy?

- Luke?

Sorry, I--I thought
you told police

that you were friends
with the other passenger.

- Um, yeah. Yeah, right.

Um, but, like, I--I don't know

how they knew each other.

- Um...

Sorry to bother you.

Uh, yeah, you should
get some rest.

- How long were you
working the suburbs?

- Uh, couple years.

Just been waiting
for the chance

to dive in here.

- How'd you end up a paramedic
in the first place?

- Actually I started
by studying pre-med

at Johns Hopkins for undergrad.
Class of 2018.

- Wow, that's--
that's not a usual path.

- I was thinking
emergency doctor at first,

but ultimately decided
the adrenaline rush

of ambulance work was
better than the inside

of any hospital,
so I headed back to Chicago.

- You just gotta be ready.

Like, for example, all right?

Teacher says,
"Uh, your daughter glued

another girl's head
to the table."

So you get a shocked
look on your face

and you say,
"What kind of school

would use glue that strong
around children?"

See? You flip it.

- Glue?
- Yeah.

I use the same approach
with scissors too.

All right?
"How could you have

"real scissors
around teenagers?

You had to have
seen it coming."

- Huh.

- Hey, Violet?

How long does it take
for a bruise to fade

and get a purple color going?

- About two or three days
I guess.

But everybody's different. Why?

- Come on.

- It's nice to meet you,
Mr. Cruz.

- Oh, uh, Joe, please.

- Okay, then have a seat, Joe.

- Uh, you know, the thing is,
uh, Ms. Selig, um,

Javi is a--a really great kid.

- Oh, I agree with you.

- You do?

- Javi isn't in trouble, Joe.


- I called you in because
Javi's been acting differently

the past week or so.

Much happier, to be honest,

and more interactive
with the class.

And he's starting
to use his English too.

He's coming out of his shell.

- Um, that's re--
that's really great.

- Whatever you and your wife
are doing,

it's making a big difference.

He told me yesterday
you two can help him

with his homework?

- A--absolutely, yes.
- That's wonderful.

Here is a packet
of all of the upcoming

and past due assignments

so you can get started
right away.

- Oh, wow.

This seems like a lot
for a fourth grader.

Uh, but no problem.

Yes, we got this.

Thank you.
- Thank you.

- She insisted
that the receipt wasn't hers.

- Did you call her on it?
- I was about to,

but then I saw this bruise
on her neck.

And Violet confirmed
that she probably had it

prior to the accident.
- What does that mean?

- That--

this girl is being super cagey.

So I think that that bruise
is part of the reason why.

I mean, look, she was wearing
a high-necked top

when we came upon her,
but in a hospital gown

there's no hiding it.

- You sure this bruise
is relevant?

That could have been
from anything.

- No, it couldn't.
That's the kind of bruise

you get when you--somebody's
trying to choke you out.

Yeah, I--um...

My ex.

- It sounds like it's time

to get this receipt
to the police.

- Yeah, that's
what I was thinking.

- So a verbal warning.

That doesn't sound that bad.

- I wouldn't say
it was a lot of fun either.

- But...

The real issue is
from here on out

I'll be under a microscope.

And you too, maybe.

I can't believe
we kissed on shift.

- The kiss isn't
the real issue.

They seemed more concern
with how much time

and attention
I've been giving you.

Covering full shifts on ambo,

popping by the firehouse
as often as I do.

You know,
basically all the stuff

that annoys Gallo.

- Wait, was the kiss
even mentioned

in the complaint?

- I do not know.

I'm not allowed to see it.

- So is there a chance
that Righetti

isn't the one
who filed the complaint?

And maybe it was Gallo.

- You know him
better than I do.

But whoever it was...

This is obviously
becoming a problem.

Violet, I think we need
to take a step back from us.

Just some time apart.

I'm sorry.


- Hey, guys.
- Hey.

- What do you got for me?

- So this came from the scene
of that accident.

It's a high-value
ATM withdrawal

just prior to the crash.

Seems like it might be
worth looking into.

- Huh, interesting.

Where'd you find it?

- One of my guys picked it up.

- Was the cash in the car?

Or on any of the victims?

- No, not--
not that we saw.

- Be nice to catch a break
in this case.

Forensics couldn't pull
a single useable print

from the car.

I'll run this down,
see what we can find out.

Thanks for bringing it by.
- Yeah, you bet.


- Nothing.

- Okay, sure, I'll take
states and capitals.

Maps are fun, right?

- All right, then I guess
I will take...

colonial America.

Well, I don't remember
anything about that, but--

- Me neither.

- Okay, only two subjects left
to divvy up.

We're doing great.

English and math.

You're reading "Charlie
and the Chocolate Factory"?

- Oh! I'll take that.

And I have to take
dividing unit fractions?

No way.

- No way.

- Hey, careful, all right?

This is a battle you don't want
to get stuck in the middle of.

All right,
rock, paper, scissors.

- Bring it on.
- Uh-oh.

- One, two--

Oh, ho, ho!
- No!

- "Charlie and the Chocolate
Factory," here I come.

Oh! No fractions for me. Hey!

No! Oh, hey!

- Javi, hold me, hold me.
She's crazy, she's crazy!

- No! No!
- Oh, my God, oh, my God, no!

- Okay, okay!

- That ATM receipt
was a real find.

The account belongs
to Luke Weber,

the owner of the vehicle.

- Guy that died in the crash.

- He actually made
three withdrawals that morning.

All within an hour,
all at different branches,

and all for the maximum amount.

- Sounds like he was being
pressed into it.

- You got that right.

We pulled footage
from the bank security cameras.

Does, uh, this guy
look familiar?

- Yep. That's the driver.

- It's all starting
to make sense now.

- So your gunman here,
he kidnaps or carjacks

the other two
and then he drives around,

draining the victims'
bank accounts

1,000 bucks at a time?
- Simple as that.

- That woman you pulled
out of the wreck,

she's in a stable condition
now, right?

- Mm-hmm.

- She didn't explain
any of that to you?

- She took a real shot
to the head.

Can't recall anything
from that morning.

So we still don't have a name,
still can't find the guy,

but at least now we know
what happened.

- Stella.
- Hey there.

You look great.

How you feeling?

- A little better.

- I gave the cops that receipt,

and they took a look
at the security footage

from the ATM machine.

Look, Adriana,

I can't say for sure
what's going on here,

but I do have
a pretty good idea.

I think that you do know

the guy who was driving
that car.

I think you know him
really well.

I think that he is
the kind of guy

who likes to take people
by the neck.

And I get it.

You're scared.

And you want to do
the right thing.

But slipping that receipt
into my coat pocket,

it's not enough.

The cops, they want
to know his name.

But if you don't tell them
before they figure out

what your relationship
really is...

There's nothing anybody can do
to help you.

- You don't understand.

- Yeah, I do.

It's hard.

Turning in somebody
that you once cared about.

It feels like a betrayal.

But...God, he has
already betrayed you.

And he'll never stop

until you take a stand.

Adriana, if you come forward,

I will do everything
in my power

to keep you safe.

That's a promise.

- I need to draw
some blood, hon.


- Hey, I couldn't
help but notice

you walked right by me
in the locker room.

And again in the common room.

And right now in the tower.
Violet, what's going on?

- You're really gonna pretend
you don't know?

- Wha--I don't have to pretend,
'cause I don't know.

- Ambulance 61,
multiple victims down,

4730 north Broadway.

- Hey, you guys
better hurry up.

It's a war zone in there.

The EFC got chippy
with the other team again.

- EFC?

- Yeah, the Edgewater
Fight Club.

It's the beer league
hockey team over here.

Bunch of bench brawlers
that ruin every practice.

- Hey, over here.
- What happened?

- Classic stick duel,

he got caught
in the cross-check.

- I was trying
to stop these pinheads,

and somebody cracked me
right in the mouth.

Well, what's the damage?
- Let me have a look.

- Aw, jeez, it's bad.
Is it bad?

- Uh, no, no, I've--
I've seen worse.

Um, are you having
any trouble breathing?

- Not really.
Well, I mean,

vision's a little im--
a little fuzzy

in my right eye.
- Yeah, it's 'cause your nose

got knocked
completely sideways.

- Aw, really?
- Yeah.

- Really?
- Yeah.

- Emma, I'll take over here.

Why don't you check on
that gentleman, please.

- Okay. What happened to you?

I lost a tooth.

- Uh, no, you lost two teeth.

- Oh, that means I must
have swallowed the other one.

- Well, this one
still has its roots.

Just soak it in some milk,
keep it moist

until you can see your dentist.

As for the other one,
it'll pass

through the narrowest part
of your digestive tract

within 24 to 48 hours.
Put that on your mouth.

You okay? What happened to you?

- And let's reach out
to Hope Lutheran

in Indianapolis too.

Sounds good. Thanks, Ellen.

Sorry about that, guys.
- No problem.

- 34 new refugee minors
entered our system this week.

It's been a nightmare
trying to place them all.

We just don't have enough
sponsor homes available.

We're putting calls out

- Damn.

Well, thank you
for all that you do.

You have an amazing program.
- Appreciate that, Joe.

Now, let's talk about Javi.

As you guys know,
our first goal is

to reunify a child
with their family,

but in Javi's case,
the chances are slim

and narrowing as we speak.

- What about an aunt?

Javi was under the impression
that was a possibility?

- We've put leads out

but haven't found a trace.

Javi's gonna be
so disappointed.

He's brought it up
a couple of times.

- I'm sorry.

And we appreciate
all you two have done.

But if this situation with Javi
isn't going to work out

for you long-term,
I need to know that now

so we can start looking
for a new home for him ASAP.

- I think a total
of six teeth were lost

at that one scrimmage.

- Couple of those guys,
might be time

to hang up the skates.
- Yeah.

You're pretty unflappable
with the bloody stuff.

Have you always been that way?

- Yeah, it's never
really bothered me.

- Hmm.
- Hey, we make a great team.

Never been much
for the touchy-feely.

- Yeah, I noticed that.

- Uh, I'll be inside
in just a minute.

How could you do that?
- Do what?

Vi, what's going on with you?
- I know it was you

that outed my relationship
with Hawkins to the brass.

- Are you serious?
- You made it very clear

that you were not a big fan
of me and him.

Who else would it have been?
- Look, stop.

Righetti was at Molly's
the other night

and he was telling everyone
that he saw

you two kissing at Med.

- Wait, what?
Who did he tell?

- Anyone that would listen.

And I told him
if he kept spreading

rumors about you,
I'd lay him out.

But I was too late.

- That's what you were
trying to tell me.

- Mm, yeah.

I wanted you to know he'd
already filed the complaint.

- Blake, I'm--
I'm so, so sorry.

I just thought
'cause of the way

you acted before that it had--
- No, it--

no matter the way I've acted,
over-protective, jealous,

whatever you want to call it,

I would never do
anything to hurt you.

You're one
of my closest friends, Violet.

I mean, I thought you were.

- Adriana.

- I didn't know
what he was planning.

Look, I had no idea.
- It's okay.


come on, just sit down.

- Look, he just pulled a gun
on this guy

and told me to get in the car.

Like, I didn't want to, but--
- But you were scared.

- Right, and I--
and I told myself,

"Why make him mad?"

This will all be over
in ten minutes.

But then he saw how much money
this guy had

in his bank account,

and he just got this look
in his eye.

And then all the ATMs,
they just stopped paying out.

- They probably hit
their daily withdrawal limit.

- Yeah, but Tiller, he--
he wanted

to wait until the next day
and do it all over again.

- Tiller.

- Y--yeah. Yeah.

And he wanted to take this guy

and hold him prisoner

And I told him, like,
"Baby, we cannot do this."

But he wouldn't listen to me.

So I tried to get
out of the car,

but then he just hit the gas
and he went faster and faster,

and I couldn't get
out of the car,

and then we--

- And then you crashed.

- It's okay.


Can you help the police
find Tiller?

- I think so.


- Yeah, sounds good.

Okay, thanks.

Tiller Martell was
just picked up

at his cousin's house.

He's in custody.

Thanks for the tip.

You got a safe place to go?

- Um, my sister.
She lives in Oak Park.

- Grab your things,
I'll give you a ride.

- What kind of protection
can she expect

for coming forward?
- Protection from what?

This dirtbag is good
for aggravated kidnapping

and first-degree murder.

He's gonna be in adult diapers
by the time he gets out.

- You and I both know

that a lot has
to go right first.

So until then, you need
to keep her in the loop.

Where he's being held,
when he gets transferred,

if he makes bail, all of it.

- She has to hold up
her end too.

People always talk the talk
at this stage,

but when it comes
time to testify--

- She already stuck
her neck out for you.

Do not abandon her.

- We'll loop her in
every step of the way.

You got my word.

- Hey, you reach out
to any of those numbers

that I gave you,
they're great organizations.

And you need anything else,
just call me.


- Thank you, Stella.

- Good.

- I thought--

I thought Violet
was coming out tonight.

- So did I.

What are you gonna do?

- It's time
for another one of these.

- Maybe slow down there,

- This round's on me, guys.

Thanks for the warm welcome
at 51.

It is much appreciated.
- Ooh, what timing.

- What he means is "thank you."

- But the--
the timing was impeccable.

Well, I'm happy

it worked out for you, Gallo.

I'm gonna run to the restroom,
and then I'll be back

to join you.

- She's all right.
- I guess so.

- Hi.

- Hi.

- Uh, you know,
hovering around my apartment

isn't exactly
keeping a distance.

Well, that's subjective.

- Mm, no, it's really not.

- Fair.

Um, turns out, staying away?

That's not so easy.

- Seems impossible even.

- Violet...

Why do I miss you so much
when I'm not with you?

- Maybe because we're not
supposed to be apart.

- Okay, uh, show us
what you got.

- 84!
- Yes!

- An 84, that is a B!

- He got a B in fractions.

- Uh-huh, yeah, I saw.
- Oh, we did so good, Javi.

- Yes!

Una B en fracciónes.

Chloe is good helper.

- Yeah, I know.
- This is all you, Javi.

We're really proud.

- Uh, hey, Javi, um,

we gotta talk to you
about something.

Uh, so, um,

we--we--we saw Eddie,

your--your case worker.


- Sweetie, they can't
find your aunt

or any other family
in the U.S. for you.

I'm sorry.

- No--no aunt?

- Uh, no, no. I'm sorry.

- It's okay.

I--I don't want to live

with someone else I don't know.

Even if they are called
an aunt.


I can stay here?

- Yeah, of course, Javi,
that's what we want too.

- Sí, sí.

- Sí?
- Sí.

- Sí!
- Sí.

- Aww.


Thank you.

- First-degree alone
is 20 years, so...

knock on wood,

he will be locked up
for a long time.

- I gotta admit,
for a while there

I was worried
you were walking a fine line.

But you knew
exactly what you were doing.

- You should be happy.

This is the best
possible outcome.

- I mean, tell that
to Adriana.

She still has to live
with the scars,

the constant worry
of, you know,

something going wrong
and him walking free.

- Stella...

You did all you could do.

And you did good.
