In their relationship, we have seen him spiral and she is the rock for him but we haven’t really seen too much in their relationship where she is spiraling and he is the sturdy foundation that is the constant. Like, even if you’re falling apart, I got you. We get to see that in a really beautiful way.”
Stella had been pursuing being a frontrunner within the CFD and that journey will proceed to unfold. “Bowden gives her the opportunity to teach at the fire academy, which is another foundational step towards being a leader in the CFD,” Miranda continued. “She’s so excited. Once she gets there she realizes that it is not just one class and that it is a little more physically involved then she thought it would be. Plus, she is managing Molly’s and is also in this wonderful relationship with Severide and that takes time, nurturing, and energy. She is still a firefighter and in one of the busiest houses in Chicago, so we see her really try to muscle through and validate the belief that Bowden has in her, and while she is doing that, we kind of see how she has bitten off maybe a little more than she can chew. So essentially we see all of that come to a head and in ways that she never would have thought that it would affect her. It’s dramatic, it’s heartbreaking, so we see everything come to a head and how she deals with that and how Bowden deals with that.”

“I feel the 2 characters which might be affected probably the most are Brett and Casey. We witness them doing this dance of managing their feelings and I feel they each are attempting to not get too excited, too connected, they usually’re additionally feeling slightly confused from the emotional journey that they’ve been dancing in with one another. I’m so excited to look at it on display as a result of they’re each phenomenal actors, so once we had been taking pictures it you might completely see all of it the place Casey is thrilled to see her [Dawson] and there’s part of him that’s like, ‘You broke my heart!’ We by no means actually noticed him course of it which I feel may be very true to lots of firefighters’ realities and the emotional stress they endure and undergo with the job. They simply file it away and don’t actually are likely to it and so I feel it was very masterful how Jesse [Spencer] performed with all of that, the place you might see this dance of feelings flurry throughout his eyes when she comes again.” Chicago Fire season eight airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
