Chicago Fire Sneak Peek: Can Casey Solve Dawson's Foster-Kid Troubles?

Chicago Fire Video

It’s the phone call that Chicago Fire‘s Dawson has dreaded: The Department of Children and Family Services is going to take away her foster child… and Casey may be the one to blame for the loss.

“Some reporter’s been digging around, asking how I got approved so quickly, implying that you pulled strings,” an emotional Dawson explains to her boyfriend in this exclusive video from Tuesday’s episode (NBC, 10/9c).  To “avoid an appearance of impropriety,” DCFS plans to place Louie with another family, whom they’ve already started vetting.

It seems that when Casey dodged the blackmailing alderman’s calls, he made a bad situation worse. Dawson responds by threatening to “bring some hell down on DCFS,” but her beau warns, “You’re not going to solve anything by going to war with a government agency.”

“Politics got us into this mess; only politics can get us out,” the firefighter continues. “Gabby, I’ll fix this. I promise.”

And just how does he plan to do that? This teaser from the official description offers up a troubling hint: “Casey enlists Susan Weller to help with an urgent personal matter.”
