What happened

Chicago Fire season 7 was pretty eventful for Sylvie Brett! She first had to deal with the departure of her partner and best friend Gabriela Dawson (Monica Raymund), then spent a while adjusting to Dawson’s replacement Emily Foster (Annie Ilonzeh). But by the end of the season, Brett had a new BFF in Foster.

Her personal life was where things got a little bit awkward. With Brettonio having broken up, the series introduced a new love interest for Brett: Foster’s old friend Kyle Sheffield (recurring guest star Teddy Sears), who became the department’s new chaplain. Brett and Kyle made a cute couple for a few months, before Kyle dumped her thinking that their relationship would keep him from being able to do his job.

Brett started to question whether or not she had feelings for Dawson’s now ex-husband Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer), and everyone else seemed to think they belonged together. But just as the show seemed headed that way, the writers had one of the most WTF moments of the season: a marriage proposal!

Despite not being together at the time and only having dated for a few months, Kyle returned and proposed to Brett, wanting him to come with her when he took a job in Indiana. And even more surprising, she said yes—with her justification being that Casey told her she was good with Kyle, so why not? It didn’t make a lot of sense, but now Brett’s engaged and possibly leaving Chicago. Or is she?
