Chicago Fire Boss Teases Shay's Fresh Start, a "Powerful" Fall Finale and a Big Cliff-Hanger

Paramedic Leslie Shay (Lauren German) has never had the best timing on Chicago Fire. Last season, she jumped back into a relationship with her pregnant ex-girlfriend, Clarice, just before Clarice found out she had to move away. Then, she tried to have a baby with her best friend Severide (Taylor Kinney) just before his ex-girlfriend showed up at their doorstep pregnant and claiming that the baby was his.

However, nothing could beat the turn of events in last Tuesday's episode of the NBC sophomore drama, when Shay returned to Firehouse 51 after a serious battle with depression and suicidal thoughts only to find out that the house was being closed.

It's hard to keep track of a team as big and as busy as Firehouse 51.

Patty Duke Returns to TV in Hawaii Five-0

These days, a lot of TV actresses are taking on dual roles: The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev (Elena/Katherine), Ringer's Sarah Michelle Gellar (Bridget/Siobhan) and The Lying Game's Alexandra Chando (Emma/Sutton). But back in 1963, Patty Duke was all on her own as identical cousins Patty and Cathy Lane on The Patty Duke Show. "We didn't have digital anything," recalls Duke, 64. "We'd [shoot] the Patty side first, then everyone would stand in place while I sneaked off and came back dressed as Cathy. In postproduction, they would actually split the celluloid."

Tonight Duke is returning to TV for a guest appearance on Hawaii Five-0. It's a role she couldn't turn down. "I play a woman in the second stage of Alzheimer's whose son was involved in a nefarious deal with gold coins in the ocean," says Duke, who took home the best supporting actress Oscar for The Miracle Worker in 1962. "McGarrett [Alex O'Loughlin] and Lori [Lauren German] come to inform my character that her son is dead and find that I'm living 20 or 30 years in the past. In her head, [her] son is still a boy coming home from school any minute for a sandwich."
