A third viewer commented: "#ChicagoFire kill Stella I dare you. For legal reasons this is a joke. Does anyone else groan at the dramatics, they're not going to do anything to her so... tease something else maybe?" while another added: "No because I guarantee the cliffhanger for the Fall Finale is about to be Stella-related. Like the grenade goes off while she’s inside or something and Kelly is panicked and inconsolable outside."
