How do you mend a broken heart? If you're Chicago Fire's Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) you spend no time listening to rumors about yourself.
In the exclusive sneak peek above, Kidd wastes no time shutting down gossip about her and Severide (Taylor Kinney) after their breakup.
"Severide's been in some mood, man," Cruz (Joe Minoso) says about Kinney's character.
"He has? Trying riding in the back of the truck next to her," Mouch (Christian Stotle) says within earshot of Kidd. Confronted, Mouch struggles to find an excuse.
"OK, you know what? Let's just get this out in the open: Yeah, Severide and I broke up. No, it will not affect our ability to work together. We're both adults, we're moving on, end of discussion," she says.
But you can see above that Kidd is looking for something to distract her—that's where Tuesday, the firehouse's Dalmatian comes factors in. Kidd's going to enter her into a competition.
The Wednesday, Jan. 16 episode also features Severide's side boat project turning awkward and Brett (Kara Killmer) helping Casey (Jesse Spencer) search for a new apartment.
Chicago Fire airs Wednesdays, 9 p.m. on NBC.
