Bad news Brettsey fans - it seems that things aren't going to be "all roses" for our favorite Chicago Fire couple.

After a few seasons of will-they-won't-they fans finally saw Captain Matt Casey and paramedic-in-charge Sylvie Brett admit their love for each other and embark on a romance.

As season 10 opens, Firehouse 51 remains unaware of their new status and it's unclear how they plan on spilling the beans to their colleagues.
