Chicago Fire’s Matthew Casey and Gabriela Dawson called it quits in the Chicago Fire season 7 premiere, but we’ll always have Dawsey’s 5 best moments.
Wednesday’s Chicago Fire season premiere officially closed the book on Dawsey. Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Gabriela Dawson (Monica Raymund) said goodbye in the first episode of the new season, but they left One Chicago fans with plenty of memories—and in their honor we’re looking back at our favorite Dawsey moments.
Dawsey was the first relationship in One Chicago history and will always be one of its most memorable. Dawson and Casey went through so many different challenges, from just getting together as a couple in the first place, to professional difficulties and personal tribulations. But they shared just as many happy moments, whether it was in the line of duty or finally tying the knot during Chicago Fire‘s milestone 100th episode.
Each season brought something else for Dawson and Casey, as Chicago Fire always kept them at the forefront of its storytelling. Over more than 100 episodes, fans had the chance to watch them grow from two good friends into a couple who couldn’t live without each other. We saw them get together, be pulled apart, get married, try to start a family more than once—if a TV couple could do it, they’ve done it.
But with Dawson permanently moving to Puerto Rico (as we found out with that surprise Monica Raymund cameo), this is the end of the road for Dawsey. And given all they’ve been through, and all that fans have invested in them, One Chicago can’t let go of its first ship without paying tribute to its history.
