Chicago Fire fans have been on a rollercoaster as Captain Matt Casey has fallen in love with Sylvie Brett, his ex-wife's best friend.

The two - known to fans as Brettsey - have become a fan favorite ship, and now showrunner Derek Haas has teased how the upcoming season nine finale will see things change for the pair.

In the recent episode, Casey (played by Jesse Spencer) had an "eye-opening" conversation with Greg Grainger over Brett, which Haas has now called an "epiphany moment" for the firefighter.

"It’s really an eye-opening conversation [for] Casey because, for so much of the time, he’s just thought that his feelings were obvious, and she was hard to read,” Haas told TV Line.

"And then you’ve got this guy [who Brett] obviously had a quick romance with, but who points out to Casey, ‘Man, I don’t care what you think. It’s her. She’s in love with you.'"

Where will these two go next?

"She tried to keep her emotions in check, but sometimes she doesn’t have a great poker face, and obviously, Grainger picked up on it. And where that will go from here is a big part of the last few episodes,” Haas shared.

Haas has also promised a dramatic season finale, and it seems like fans should perhaps prepare themselves for the worst.
