Now in its eleventh season, NBC’s Chicago Fire has given us so many relationships to root for over the years. From friendships to romances, it’s easy to get invested in the characters and the bonds they form. And though we can all agree that the drama series is one of our favorite weekly staples, fans are always on different pages in terms of which couple they’re rooting for.

Whether you’re all in on Stella Kidd and Kelly Severide (a.k.a. Stellaride) or wish Sylvie Brett and Matt Casey (a.k.a. Brettsey) were still together, we all have our ships we’re willing to defend.

There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to which romance on Chicago Fire is the greatest of all time, but it sure is fun to debate about. We decided to take the conversation a step further and ask the AI tool ChatGPT who the best couple is, and the answer might surprise you. Especially if you’re a Stellaride fan!

Dawsey is the best Chicago Fire couple, according to AI

When asking ChatGPT to use the voice of a Chicago Fire fan, here’s what it told me:

"In my opinion, the best couple on the show is Casey and Dawson, hands down. These two have been through so much together and their love story is just so beautiful to watch.First of all, their chemistry is off the charts. You can tell that they have a deep connection and truly care about each other. They are always there for each other, no matter what, and they have each other’s backs through thick and thin.But what really sets them apart is the way they handle adversity. They have been through so much together, from Casey’s near-death experience to Dawson’s struggles with PTSD, and they always come out stronger on the other side. They are a true team and they support each other in every way possible."

Are you surprised by the AI tool’s answer? To be transparent, the tool says it has limited data from 2021 onwards, so that might be a reason it didn’t choose Stellaride. But still, Dawsey was a major fan-favorite and we understand why. The two characters got together in the second season and certainly seemed like they would be endgame.

Matthew Casey and Gabriela Dawson first met when they were working at Firehouse 51. Although they had a bit of a rocky start, we could tell there was something romantic brewing right off the bat. Eventually, they became close friends and started to develop feelings for each other. Unfortunately for Dawsey shippers, the pair later called it quits and divorced. Actress Monica Raymund decided to leave Chicago Fire at the end of season 6 to explore different roles.

Though Raymund has returned to Chicago Fire on one-off occasions, Dawsey is still no more.
