Chicago Fire has plenty of romances brewing in season 10, but the one that’s most fresh is between Matt Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer). The couple went back-and-forth for several seasons before taking the plunge in season 9, and now they are going to see whether they can make a proper relationship work.
Given the drama that Casey and Brett have already had to contend with, fans might be hoping for a painless and easygoing relationship. According to showrunner Derek Haas, the exact opposite is true. He told TV Line that there’s going to be plenty of obstacles for the new couple in season 10, and they will have to grow together in order to overcome them.
Do Casey and Brett get together in Chicago Fire season 10?
Haas revealed that the decision to bring Casey and Brett together was an organic one that came from their chemistry as friends. It was picked up by writers as a means of capturing the way that real-life friendships can blossom into romance.
That being said, the showrunner was quick to remind fans that Chicago Fire is known for its slow burns, and the couple still have plenty of ground to cover before they can comfortably be one. “It’s not going to be all roses from here”, he added. “This is Chicago Fire. Nothing is ever easy.”
The decision to saddle Casey and Brett (or Brettsey) with all this baggage makes sense given the tumultuous personal lives both have led on the show. Casey lost his fiancé to a devastating fire in season 1, before embarking on a failed marriage with Gabby Dawson. The latter left at the end of season 7, ultimately deciding that she wanted different things.

Brett has had similar bad luck in the romance department. She claimed that she had left her fiancé at the altar after joining the show in season 3, though it was later revealed that he left her. She’s also had relationships with Joe Cruz (Joe Minoso) and Chicago PD‘s Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda), though neither panned out in the long run.
Haas may promise “major changes” and “heartbreak” for Casey and Brett as they embark on their relationship, but given the special bond these two have had over the course of the show, there’s a good chance they’ll be able to overcome these changes and live a happily ever after. They both deserve it.
