Taylor Kinney is no stranger to iconic Chicago Fire moments. The actor has been at the center of most of them, and that includes the latest season. Fans rejoiced over/recoiled during highlights like the Stellaride wedding, or the fight that nearly broke them up beforehand.

We all have our favorite moments, and part of the fun of being part of the One Chicago fandom is getting to compare and contrast them with other people’s favorites. Of course, the notion of a top scene or favorite moment extends to the cast.

Kinney recently revealed his favorite Chicago Fire moment, and it may not be what you expected.

Is Taylor Kinney returning to Chicago Fire?

During an interview with NBC, the actor was asked to pick out the Chicago Fire scene that meant the most to him. Rather than pick a recent one, or an obvious crowd-pleaser, he went with a scene that ranks among the most action-packed in the entire show.

The scene in question happens during the season 6 premiere, when Severide (Kinney) and Casey (Jesse Spencer) are forced to close off the gas line of a burning building. They realize that once they let the gas line go, the rest of the building will up in flames with it…

The duo don’t have much time to consider alternatives, so they decide to hold the gas line until everyone is clear of the building, then let it go and make a run for it. They follow the plan, and leap off the building into the Chicago River below them. It’s a thrilling moment, and maybe one of the quintessential examples of Severide and Casey working as a team.

"“They both jump off, a big fireball explodes”, Kinney told the outlet. “It’s one of the best memories I’ve had in the last 10 years.”"

The selection is especially poignant, now that Casey has left the show and been reduced to an occasional cameo. It’s a reminder of how strong the dynamic was between them in the show’s early seasons, and how, no matter who comes in to replace Casey, nobody will replicate the same way he interacted with Severide.
