Blake Gallo, Violet Mikami, and Chief Evan Hawkins have a complicated love triangle thus far this season. Gallo and Violet dated in the past, and there could be some lingering feelings there — especially as newcomer Emma Jacobs flirts with Gallo. But Violet remains focused on her relationship with her superior, Hawkins.

Co-showrunner Derek Haas told TVLine that fans can anticipate a “hot scene in the sushi restaurant” between Violet and Chief Hawkins in Chicago Fire Season 10 Episode 20. But Gallo’s still very much in the picture.

“Gallo has been sidelined a bit in the friend role, and that’s going to get a little shaken up in the last couple of episodes because he’s really going to step up for Violet in unexpected ways, and that’ll kind of bring him back into this triangle and make the triangle even more complicated than it already was,” co-showrunner Andrea Newman also told the publication.

Executive producer Andrea Newman gave TVLine some insight into Gallo, Violet, and Chief Hawkins moving forward after Chicago Fire Season 10 Episode 20. She also told Deadline more intel about the love triangle “complications” to come.

“The Gallo, Hawkins, Violet love triangle is still alive,” she told Deadline. “There’s still a lot of complications between them. It’s not going to be as simple as off she goes with Hawkins. It’s still a tricky situation for all three of them and Gallo ends up very much in between those two.”

Adding Emma Jacobs into the mix also complicates the triangle. Violet remains convinced Emma’s gunning for her job. And Emma’s also made flirting attempts with Gallo, setting alarms off for Violet.

“She’s a very intriguing character who will surprise everybody at every turn,” Newman told Deadline about Emma. “She is driven, strong, and a tough woman with her own agenda that is yet to be revealed.”
