'Chicago Fire' Season 7 Finale Preview: Severide And Kidd Reconnect
WARNING: This article contains spoilers for Chicago Fire season 7 that may influence your enjoyment in discovering the plotlines. Read at your own risk.
For weeks, the relationship between Severide (played by Taylor Kinney) and Kidd (played by Miranda Rae Mayo) on Chicago Fire has been on and off. But things might change in the season finale when the two reconnect because of a case.
The preview teaser for the Chicago Fire season 7 finale shows Kidd catching Severide who is still obsessing about Benny's old arson case. Kidd sits him down in an attempt to put some sense into Severide, and it might look like they will reconnect.
The next scenes in the teaser, however, show that Severide's life may be on the line while trying to put out a fire. It's unlikely, however, for the character to die but will it still be possible for Severide severely hurt himself before he patches things up with Kidd?
It's pretty clear that Kinney's character won't be killed off in the Chicago Fire season 7 finale. The actor has recently inked a deal with NBC to continue with the show for season 8 and season 9, respectively, along with his co-star Jesse Spencer (as Matthew Casey), as per Deadline. He also received a cushy salary bump for signing on for the next two seasons.
NBC renewed Chicago Fire for season 8 last February along with the other shows in the Chicago franchise. According to TV Line, the show averages around eight million viewers every week, and it's the number two show on the network.
Meanwhile, the episode synopsis for the Chicago Fire season 7 finale hinted about Brett's (played by Kara Killmer) big decision. This has likely to do with her feelings for Casey, which has been brewing in the previous episodes.
Showrunner Derek Haas told TV Line in another interview that the hints about these two characters have been deliberate throughout Chicago Fire season 7. The potential pairing, however, won't likely see some conclusion just yet given that they both have been hurt in the past.
"You've got two characters who are hurt by the last relationships they had, and they're both essentially really strong, good people. So yeah, those hints have been deliberate, and we'll see where it goes," Haas said.
The Chicago Fire season 7 finale will air on Wednesday, May 22, on NBC. The show will be back for in the 2019-2020 TV season slate.
