What Chicago
Fire Fans See In
Mouch's Future
A certified fan-favorite on NBC's action-drama "Chicago Fire," longtime veteran firefighter Randall "Mouch" McHolland has been a rock-steady, almost fatherly presence on the show since it premiered in 2012. Mouch has suffered a heart attack, accidentally sold a colleague's pet cat, and even contemplated retirement, but here’s how fans of the show see his future on the show.
A Redditor posted a discussion titled "Now that Mouch gets older" in the show's subreddit, asking other fans for suggestions about the best way to ensure Mouch sticks around once he retires. They also proposed, "My idea was some kind of janitor/repairman role for him in the firehouse," then adding, "I can't imagine CF without him and I don't want them to kill him."
Another Redditor pitched another alternative for Mouch's retirement. They wrote, "Just make him the house mascot, unofficial cook, dog walker, uncle that doesn't ever leave," then adding that he could serve as a volunteer at the firehouse whose hobby would be sharing stories about his adventures as a firefighter.
