Chicago Fire has a plan for Dawsey after Monica Raymund’s exit, but here’s why we don’t think it will work for Dawson and Casey in Chicago Fire season 7.

One Chicago fans got a big answer last week, as Chicago Fire co-creator and showrunner Derek Haas revealed what’s going to happen to Dawsey in the wake of Monica Raymund‘s decision not to return for the upcoming season.

Here’s the thing: we’re not convinced that’s the best idea.

While having Gabriela Dawson (Raymund) and Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) remain together certainly sounds like great news for Chicago Fire‘s many Dawsey shippers, and indeed all of the One Chicago fans who’ve watched this relationship grow for the last six seasons, it’s not that simple.

There are more than enough concerns about a long-distance relationship, particularly with the most prominent couple in the show—and the franchise—that there are plenty of ways this might go wrong. Not only for Dawsey, but for Dawson and Casey as individual characters, and even for the show and its fans themselves.

Here are a couple of the kinks that need to be worked out before we can get on the Chicago Fire season 7 Dawsey train.
