What should One Chicago fans learn from this week’s Chicago Fire? Look closer at the latest episode with our Chicago Fire season 7, episode 11 takeaways.

What did One Chicago fans learn from this week’s Chicago Fire episode? Here’s what we took away from the latest installment, “You Choose.”

“You Choose” featured Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) being accused of arson by the guy who had just hired him last week to repair his boat, when it was really the man’s neglected son who did the deed. Plus, everyone discovered Tuesday’s not-so-secret love for peanut butter.

If you missed any of this week’s episode or just want a refresher on the events that we’re about to discuss, you can catch up with our Chicago Fire recap.

Below are our takeaways from this week’s episode:

More from One Chicago Center

1) Brettonio is dead

Sorry, Brettonio fans, but that ship is clearly sunk because Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer) spent this week being all lovey with Kyle Sheffield (recurring guest star Teddy Sears).

They were adorable together, and that’s no surprise—it’s a new relationship, so of course the show is going to give them cute moments that get the fans on board with the pairing.

But the more you think about it, it’s also probably for the best. Could you imagine Brett’s reaction to all of the drama Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) is being put through right now? It would have been tough to see them face that, especially since Antonio hasn’t been the most pleasant person to be around. So maybe a fresh start is what they both need.

2) But bromance is not

Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) went apartment hunting this week, via Brett, but ultimately he did not get a new place—because he wanted to stay with Severide and be there for him. Was that not the cutest moment of the whole episode?

Their respective romances aside, the friendship between Casey and Severide is also an important relationship in Chicago Fire history. It’s the core relationship that helped set up the show, that has that compare and contrast dynamic that keeps it interesting. So it’s fantastic that the show will be putting at least a little more focus on that relationship.

But here’s the thing: will Severide open up to Casey? And if he does, will Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) be jealous of Severide talking to Casey, the same way she was jealous of him speaking with Emily Foster (Annie Ilonzeh)? How this goes could also reveal more issues in the Stellaride ‘ship, too.

3) We need more Trudy (and Cindy)

When Chicago Fire brought in the dog trainer who was friends with Trudy Platt (Amy Morton), did anyone else wish we actually saw Trudy? That whole scene just prompted questions like how did this woman and Trudy become friends? How would Trudy have trained Tuesday? (She’d probably have been able to do it with just a look.)

In general, more Trudy is always a good thing—particularly this season, when she’s also been not used so much on Chicago PD. But the relationship between her and Mouch (Christian Stolte) is so awesome, that it would have been fantastic if she popped up. And while we’re on the subject, the reappearance of Cindy Herrmann (Robyn Coffin) last week reminded us how great she is, too. We need more of both of these ladies.
