When she came [to Firehouse 51], it was due to of a breakup with a man after which she moved with the chaplain out of Chicago. So she’s made a lot of choices in step with these relationships, and she or he’s modified into this stronger, more fair lady. So irrespective of how powerful she loves Casey, and it’s undeniable, she’s making choices now which are for her have future and for her lifestyles with this paramedicine motive, which is indubitably shut to and expensive to her.

TVLINE | You left the door open there, although, at bit. She says, “Perchance some day.” Carry out you hope to revisit the relationship, if the stars align with Jesse Spencer?
DEREK HAAS | Oh, certain! We’re regularly hoping these stars align.
TVLINE | You acknowledged Brett is going to be focusing on paramedicine. Carry out you would possibly perchance well perchance be feeling enjoy or now now not it is critical to abet her single for a actually long time, valid to more or less give folks time to mourn that relationship?

TVLINE | Even supposing Brett and Casey are no longer together, are we restful going to gain updates on Casey, per chance through Severide?
NEWMAN | Chase, we’ll retain listening to about him, and folks poke to Casey for advice. They’re all tight, they’re restful household. So you’ll positively hear his title.
TVLINE | Now that Violet and Hawkins are assist together and their relationship is public, what can we ask with them?

NEWMAN | He’s the most though-provoking man within the field due to he basically loves Violet, and so he basically wants the most though-provoking for her and needed to develop that. I non-public once he did that, he blocked it off. No topic his feelings, he locked that section off in his head for Violet, and he’s going to switch forward.
HAAS | He’s now now not precisely going to be by myself for too long.
