Warning: The following comprises spoilers for Wednesday’s Chicago Fire. Proceed at your individual danger!
Chicago Fire‘s return on Wednesday was a troublesome one for numerous ‘shipper factions, with not one however two pairings taking a success.
First, Casey and Brett had a much-needed speak concerning the abrupt ending to their make-out session. “My emotions for you, they’re actual, Sylvie, no matter Gabby,” Casey reassured the blonde, who shortly retorted, “There is not any ‘no matter Gabby.’ That’s the purpose.”
Then to make issues very clear, Brett added, “What occurred between us, it could possibly’t occur once more. Ever.” And though she does not wish to lose Casey’s friendship, Brett requested that he give her “a little bit area proper now,” as a result of she “cannot go proper again to the way in which issues have been” earlier than they locked lips.
Later, Casey confessed to Severide that he hasn’t had any contact with or actually thought of his ex-wife for months. “Sylvie’s been the one one on my thoughts,” he admitted. But she desires area, and the energy of his emotions is strictly why he must again off. “Maybe it is for one of the best,” Casey concluded.
Elsewhere, Severide found that individuals have been gossiping about Stella’s fast climb up the CFD ladder and the way sleeping with a linked firefighter in all probability is not hurting her. So like his pal, Severide determined to offer Stella her area as a substitute of serving to her examine for the lieutenant’s examination like he promised. When Severide provided his girlfriend a imprecise excuse somewhat than explaining the state of affairs, Stella famous his “bizarre” habits to Brett.
Below, showrunner Derek Haas previews the brand new characters who will probably be thwarting Brett and Casey’s potential romance, and divulges how fearful Severide and Stella followers must be.
TVLINE (*3*)| Casey says he’ll give Brett her area — or at the very least that is what he tells Severide. How steadfast will he be in that? Is he really going to comply with by with that, or is he going to possibly battle for Brett?
There are going to be some extra obstacles thrown at that relationship within the phrases of some new characters arriving within the subsequent episode. There’s a glance on Casey’s face that you’re going to know whenever you see it in Episode 4. I assumed Jesse Spencer did an excellent job of conveying loads with only a look… This is just not going to be easy crusing for some time for both of them.
TVLINE (*3*)| Are these new characters new love pursuits?
They’re, I might say, potential roadblocks to a Brett/Casey relationship.
TVLINE (*3*)| Brett is actually adamant about the truth that Gabby’s at all times going to be a difficulty, however Casey says he really hasn’t actually thought of her currently. So is that one thing that they will reconcile?
Well, I do not know. Honestly, I can inform you the genesis of that, and the place I felt prefer it was a really sincere dialog is that, on our show, we attempt our damnedest as writers to acknowledge and to honor the historical past of the show. That’s why we’ll deliver up characters that have not been round for seven seasons, like when Severide went and obtained the door off the ambulance to honor the reminiscence of Shay. And with Gabby, the viewers watched six years of this relationship between Casey and Gabby, after which she got here again final season — presently, really — and so they slept collectively once more. So this is not one thing you may simply shrug off, and Brett knew Gabby very well. So when Casey says, “Well, no matter Gabby,” and Brett says, “There is not any ‘no matter Gabby,'” that, to me, felt actually sincere and the way that may occur in actual life.
TVLINE (*3*)| But the truth that he says that he hasn’t actually been desirous about Gabby currently, does that signify that he is moved on? Has he gotten some closure within the relationship?
Well, he may assume so, however I’m undecided that is true.
TVLINE (*3*)| And it does not look like Brett would consider it. They don’t appear to be on the identical web page.
No. That’s an excellent description.
TVLINE (*3*)| Severide is maintaining his distance from Stella as a result of he learns what persons are saying about her and the potential job promotion. How a lot of a toll is that going to tackle their relationship?
It’s going to get unhealthy, as a result of Severide will be irritating as a result of he does not at all times categorical what’s on his thoughts. [Laughs] And typically, he will get these concepts of easy methods to deal with issues that he thinks are greatest and does not notice he is doing harm. But in his thoughts, he is doing the fitting factor, and he desires Stella to attain her desires on her phrases and does not need anybody to assume there was any form of favoritism or shortcut for her. So he thinks he is doing the fitting factor, however will that be interpreted appropriately? Probably not.
