The Chicago Fire commercial implied that not everyone would survive a blaze and it wasn’t wrong. Someone is “completely shattered” at the end of this episode and so are we.
In episode 51, after Brett (Kara Killmer) invites Hawkins (Jimmy Nicholas) to lunch with her and Violet (Hanako Greensmith) realizing that the couple won’t have much time to spend together due to his impending transfer, the entire 51st is dispatched to a theater fire.
Several people are stuck beneath the screen and two more are down in the basement storage area. Boden (Eamonn Walker) orders Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) to do the primary search before dispatching Severide (Taylor Kinney) to the ones in the storage room. Boden is right in saying that the time limit is only two minutes, not ten.
Hawkins arrives and assumes control of triage as additional first responders arrive. Boden, dissatisfied with the scene gives the group one more minute to leave. The squad hasn’t even entered the storage area yet and there are more victims. Gallo (Alberto Rosende) always seems to get hurt whenever he tries to help someone else.
Violet, who is outside with Brett, treating victims is concerned when Kidd calls on a mayday. But nothing can compare to the shock she feels when, shortly after they rescue Gallo and find that he is okay, the situation takes a tragic and horrible turn.

Violet tells Boden that Hawkins saw a man collapse outside the back door and that her boyfriend was helping the victim. Before Boden can check on Hawkins and the victim, the building caves in on them.
Violet can only stand by and watch as the firefighters rush to dig them out and reach Hawkins. Immediately, she rushes to him and starts performing CPR. She screams as Boden pulls her back, “I can save him!” “Please, sir, let’s give it a shot. As he’s being swept away, she begs, “Please let me try.” It’s too late now, though. Hawkins has unfortunately passed away.
