When CHICAGO FIRE ended its 2020 run, Brett (Kara Killmer) and Casey (Jesse Spencer) finally took a step forward in their relationship, sharing a kiss—until Brett brought up the figurative elephant in the room (AKA Casey’s former wife/Brett’s long-time friend, Gabby).

Brett asked her potential-beau whether he’d go if Gabby (Monica Raymund) asked him to leave Chicago with her; while he initially tried to dodge the question, he ultimately admitted he didn’t know…prompting Brett to put the brakes on their fledgling romance.

As the show returns with the Wednesday, January 6 hour, “Smash Therapy,” “they do have to navigate what came out of the conversation that ended episode 2,” CHICAGO FIRE executive producer Derek Haas says. “Which was to me was a really honest conversation about the ‘Big G’ that was hanging over these two for years. And one thing I like about the writing staff on our show is they always honor the history—we don’t just sweep under the rug relationships and events and life circumstances that have happened over nine years.”

“I thought her question was very real that she would ask,” he continues. “And I don’t think Casey gave the best response. And now they have to talk. And they will in this [return] episode—and continuing in episodes coming up. But, of course, there’s going to be more obstacles and new characters that come in to disrupt things. That’s how we do it!”

In the immediate aftermath, the duo will having varying levels of success from keeping the newfound tension away from their friends and colleagues. “Kidd has just been funny, because she’s kind of just interested in the story, almost like she’s watching a reality show herself,” Haas says with a laugh. “She professed her love of THE BACHELOR this year. So she just wants the details. She’s not very judgy at all with the situation.”

“Severide is always going to be there for Casey; Severide is a man of few words—that doesn’t change—but he’s there for a cigar chat when needed,” he continues. “And, of course, Severide’s going to soon find himself having problems of his own, so he’s the last one to judge somebody else’s relationships.”
