Chicago Fire Season 8, Episode 12 airs on Wednesday night, and actor Chris Henry Coffey plays Jim DeVoe in the all-new episode.
At the back end of Season 8, there have been a lot of guest-starring roles, especially with Chicago Firehouse 51 having to share space. That led to a lot of drama when the show returned from its winter hiatus.
During the January 22 episode, drama outside the house is going to reveal itself. The over-arching story is that a series of false alarms at a private school is affecting the ability of the house to respond to real emergencies.
But there might be something else going on here that will need to be addressed before the credits roll on the night.
Elsewhere in the episode — which is called Then Nick Porter Happened — Kidd will seek ideas to help celebrate Severide’s birthday. Additionally, Cruz and Brett are going to rent out their extra room, but the tenant they get isn’t what they had been hoping for.
Who plays Jim DeVoe on Chicago Fire cast?
