I’m so excited to have #OneChicago back tonight! Last season ended for all three shows on a tense note, but especially exciting and dangerous were Chicago Med and Chicago Fire, so those are my two picks tonight.

On Chicago Med, after a disagreement about a patient, Will & Hannah decided to start over, and knowing she was looking for an apartment, he offered to let her rent one in his new building. Little did they know that the building would be on fire only hours later. Which leads us to Dylan and undercover cop Jo. She knew her cover had been blown, so she was preparing to leave town, and when she gave Dylan the evidence she collected to give his father because she thinks there’s a dirty cop involved in her investigation, we learned she’d been staying in Will’s apartment building. That’s when Will interrupted them to tell them the building was on fire. Unfortunately, one of the bad guys from her case appeared, and after a struggle with his gun, Dylan ended up shooting him. Jo was hurt, and Dylan told her to run, but before he and Will could get the man Dylan shot out of the building to safety, they were trapped by the fire. The rest of the Med gang had big stories too. Crockett was given Pamela’s power of attorney, and when there was a complication during her surgery, he made the call he thought was right, against Pamela’s daughter’s wishes and what she thought her mother would want, and she had a stroke during the surgery. When she woke up, she was very, very angry and upset about Crockett’s decision. Also, Dr. Charles realized that dating his (former) therapist was a bad idea and broke up with her, Maggie finally set up a meeting between Vanessa and her birth father, Goodwin ended up delivering her grandbaby when her daughter went into labor during their lunch and there was no way to get her to the hospital, and Ethan and Dean attended a ceremony honoring his late-father’s military service. Ethan gave the flag he received to his father’s partner, and Dean got all up in his feels and decided to reach out to his own kid.

Then on the Chicago Fire finale, we got rid of that horrid witch Emma after she abandoned Violet on a dangerous call and was fired by Hawkins fired her. Later, Kidd & Severide FINALLY tied the knot, and it was absolutely lovely, between having to find a new venue (and the riverboat turned out to be perfect!) and having all their friends and (most of) their family there. We even got to see a sweet message from Severide’s mom, who was unable to make it, but not through any fault of hers. Unfortunately, Brett and Casey, who were super adorable, clearly weren’t as happy, each knowing that the relationship they currently had couldn’t be expected to last much longer, being so far apart and only seeing each other occasionally. I don’t know when they’ll officially pull the plug, but Brett’s not going anywhere and Casey isn’t coming back, so it’s likely happening sometime soon. Once the reception was over, Kidd & Severide went to his cabin for their honeymoon, but we saw a truck pull up outside, and every indication was that it was tied to the guys who Severide was up against. Eek!

So yes, both series had strong finales with huge cliff hangers, and I can’t wait to see how they play out tonight!

On tonight’s episode of Chicago Med, “How Do You Begin to Count the Losses,” i n the aftermath of Will’s apartment fire, Crockett, Ethan and Archer work together to try and save the survivors. Charles and Med’s new fellow, Nellie, helps a paranoid patient. Dylan makes a life-changing decision.

Then on Chicago Fire, “Hold On Tight,” Kidd and Severide’s honeymoon is interrupted by a dangerous person from their past. Kidd’s former academy classmate joins Firehouse 51. Brett and Violet reflect on their relationships.

See how the story lines are resolved tonight on NBC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Survivor, The Amazing Race, The Conners, The Goldbergs, Guy’s Ultimate Game Night, & No-Recipe Road Trip with The Try Guys.

I am unbelievably happy that Chicago PD returns tonight. While I enjoy all of the shows in this franchise, PD is definitely my favorite. It is unfortunate that Halstead is leaving this season though, because he has been one of the best characters from the beginning—his ability to walk the fine line between right and wrong while still doing his job is admirable. It doesn’t hurt that he’s so easy on the eyes as well!

When we left off last season, Voight had just lost Anna, and the team was reeling from the very intense case. I’m interested to see if the loss makes Voight even more reckless or if he’ll be more cautious. Time will tell.

On tonight’s episode, “Let It Bleed,” still dealing with the death of his informant, Anna, Voight faces a new threat as he tries to keep the neighborhood clean. New wrinkles develop in the Upton, Halstead, and Voight dynamic. The team gets a new chief.

Tune in to NBC at 10/9c to see if Voight can keep things safe in the neighborhood.

I’ll also be watching Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, The Amazing Race, The Masked Singer, Abbott Elementary, and The Conners.
