It’s Brett’s first day and coming back to 51 everyone gives her a nice welcome back surprise. Glad to be back, Brett and Foster get a call of an injured kid, Issac, at a correctional facility; but when they get there they get stopped by the high power guard. Both Brett and Foster get a bad fab from the kid and looks into what’s been going on.

After telling Boden about it; they see that the facility was quickly on the defense of what happened. They go to talk with the attorney that represented Issac, but got nothing from him. But instead talked with a social worker, who worked with Issac. The three worked together to confront the boss of the facility and the officer; but as Issac back off his statement, he started telling what the officer really does and gets everyone to talk too, which puts the officer in a bad position.

Firehouse 51 has gotten a new upgrade; but it’s not going so good. Of course, it pisses off Herrmann but soon gets all on everyone’s nerve. But yeah at least Casey got a hot date along with it so it’s not all that bad. But it really was and when the alarms go off for nothin, Boden breaks the machine while Casey’s hot date comes back mad and tells him to lose her number.

While Boden had a headache, he still has doubts about Gallos and after listening to his story and seeing how he and Casey saved a little girl at an amusement park. He learns the truth that he and another firehouse team saved Gallos a long time ago and ever since the kid has been coming around their firehouse. Wow, right?

“Badlands” was a very good episode and seeing Brett back at Firehouse 51 was awesome! The story was very good with character development with Boden and Gallos. Plus I ate the Casey and Severide scenes up. I loved it. Fun and awkwardly brilliant. Overall, I give this episode a 9/10.
