If you thought the Season 3 premiere of “Chicago Fire” was intense just wait until episode 3, “Just Drive the Truck,” airs on Tuesday, Oct. 7. According to the synopsis for next week’s episode, things are about to get seriously heated (and bloody) for our friends at Firehouse 51 when they have a deadly collision with the folks from Austin.
During episode 3, the gang from 51 will get a call regarding a fire. But on their way to put out the flames they’ll notice they aren’t the only ones racing to the scene. They spot the crew from Austin firehouse a street over, also en route to save the day. But Cruz (Joe Minoso) is determined to get to the fire first when he learns that Casey’s (Jesse Spencer) old pal Welch (Kenny Johnson) is on the next truck over.
“Don’t worry, Casey. I’ve got this,” he says in the promo video, reassuring his friend. But Casey reveals he’s “not interested in a pissing contest.”
“If Welch wants this fire he can have it,” he replies. But Cruz has no plans on letting up. Instead, he drives even faster. “Cruz, forget it. Just drive the truck,” Casey warns.
That’s when another firefighter interjected that they’d be taking orders from Welch if they arrived second. But from the episode 3 sneak peek video it looks like no one will make it to the fire after the two trucks collide in a crippling accident. Many firefighters are left with broken bones, unable to see and unconscious. Check out the cringe-worthy promo videos below:
And that’s not all “Chicago Fire” fans can expect from episode 3. According to the summary, fans will get relief from all the heart-stopping drama when Boden (Eamonn Walker) reveals his plan on getting Dawson (Monica Raymund) a badge. Meanwhile Mills (Charlie Barnett) will face his past and future as the Molly’s group “hits a speed bump starting the food truck.”
