There is a call, a man fell down an elevator shaft and is trapped underneath. Casey slides right under before they secure the elevator and it could crush the two of them. Otis cuts the power on the elevator but Herrmann tells him it is not stopping. The elevator is going down and is going to crush the two of them.
Casey and the man are saved just in time. Once, everyone, is safe Severide says to Casey that he doesn’t mean to step on his captainness, but how about not throwing himself into harm’s way next time before they get a clear.
Foster and Brett are getting to know each other. Gerry walks up to Boden who congratulates him on his promotion to Assistant Deputy Commission.

Foster asks Brett if she would like to go out with her for a fun night, she says no.
Boden is fishing with Severide and Casey. Boden shares how he knows Gerry from way back, they never liked each other. Severide says that it is just like Grissom to find Boden’s Achilles heal and turn it against him. Casey catches a fish and they all cheer.
Otis bumps into Ramirez at the bar and tells him that he got him on the chess game. Ramirez says he transferred out, he is not playing chess, Otis wonders who is playing with. Boden walks in, Otis gives him the report on Grissom.

Foster wants to perform a procedure to help save the eye, Brett tells her that she is not trained for that, she does it anyway and it is successful. At the hospital, the man is going to be fine.
