3. The obvious signs

As Matt and Sylvie continued to lean on each other, they also turned to one another for advice in their personal lives. In “You Choose“, Brett helped Casey look for a new apartment; in “Fault in Him” she urged him to get help for his post-traumatic stress after a near-death experience.

During “Until the Weather Breaks” the duo came together again to help care for a stowaway kid at the firehouse; while in “Try Like Hell” Matt tried to help Sylvie with her fractured relationship with Chaplain Kyle Sheffield (recurring guest star Teddy Sears).

Another obvious scene comes from the aforementioned episode, where Brett and Casey were so in sync that they could guess each other’s next moves in order to win at charades. This doesn’t go unnoticed, especially by Matt’s date Olivia (which Sylvie thought she was doing a favor by setting up), who later tells Brett that “she’s the one who should be with Matt Casey.”

She vehemently denies it, but when her nerves get the best of her in “The White Whale” even Kidd and Foster notice her change in demeanor around Matt. This makes Sylvie stop and consider her feelings for him. Their closeness is further emphasized when Matt is injured, and Sylvie has to tend to his wound. They talk, and share yet another longing look and meaningful thought with one another.

All of these minuscule moments don’t help Sylvie in her contemplation over her feelings for Matt, and she’s blindsided further when the Chaplain surprised her in the Season 7 finale by proposing. Despite being broken up, she does accept his proposal, which leads to the a short, albeit intense conversation between Brett and Casey.

It turns out that Casey unintentionally pushed the couple back together when he told Sylvie that she and the Chaplain were great together. Well, Sylvie heeded his advice and now the both of them are left confused thanks to their uncertain feelings.

When Season 8 comes back on September 25, we bet Matt and Sylvie will have a lot of explaining to do. The two will hopefully talk to each other about everything that’s transpired, but whether or not it will lead to a heartfelt confession is up to the writers.

Regardless of their relationship status, it has been very cool to see Killmer and Spencer interact more. We know these two will continue to shine onscreen, and we cannot wait to see what’s in store for Sylvie Brett and Matt Casey in Chicago Fire‘s new season.
