‘Chicago Fire’: Sylvie and Matt Make a Decision and Severide and His Team Are in Trouble
The Chicago Fire Season 9 finale had plenty of memorable moments. Some of the top moments include Matt (Jesse Spencer) and Sylvie (Kara Killmer) finally deciding what they’re going to do. Also, Severide (Taylor Kinney) and his team get into a bit of a situation. Here’s what happened last time on Chicago Fire.
[Spoiler alert: this article contains spoilers for Chicago Fire Season 9 Episode 16]
Matt and Sylvie make a decision on ‘Chicago Fire’
Ever since Matt revealed he’s in love with Sylvie, things have been awkward. While Sylvie was at an accident scene, she started to clam up because Matt was kneeling next to her. He had to tell her to stop and focus so she could do her job properly.
Later, Violet (Hanako Greensmith) confronts Sylvie about the way she’s been acting. She notices Brett is stalling and looking for excuses not to go back to the firehouse. Violet says they’re both good people and hints that Sylvie should pursue a relationship with Matt.
Kelly visits Matt in his office and asks if he heard anything from Sylvie. Matt says Sylvie hasn’t said a word to him ever since he told her he loves her. Matt decides just to leave Sylvie alone and move on. He figures Sylvie doesn’t want to be bothered.
“I’m getting the message loud and clear,” says Matt. “It made things awkward—or more awkward if that’s possible. I’m done, I’m backing off completely.”
After what seems like an eternity of silence, Sylvie finds Matt and tells him she’s also in love with him. “We belong together,” says Sylvie. “We’re right for each other. When you know, you know.” Matt agrees and they kiss.
Gallo and Violet explore the possibilities—or not
Gallo (Alberto Rosende) approaches Violet about going on a date and seeing where things go. However, Violet declines his offer. She told him that she found out he used to date the paramedic who used to work there. She’s getting the sense that Gallo will date whoever is available at the moment, and she doesn’t want to get involved with a “player.”
Ritter (Daniel Kyri) pulls Violet aside and tells her she should consider giving Gallo a chance. He tells her that Gallo is far from being a player and she should think about hanging out with him.
Stella Kidd thanks Boden
Stella goes to Boden’s (Eamonn Walker) office and thanks him for believing in her. During Chicago Fire Season 9 Episode 15 (titled “A White-Knuckle Panic”), she learns that she passed the lieutenant’s exam. She thanked Boden for suggesting that she take the exam and for having confidence in her abilities.
“You signed me up for the leadership conference when I wasn’t even considering myself a leader,” says Stella. “You had that confidence in me. You think you know what that means to someone in my shoes, but you don’t. It meant everything.”
Boden says he saw Stella’s value from the start. “I just saw what was right in front of me,” says Boden. “A remarkable firefighter and even more remarkable person.”
Severide and his team are in trouble
Severide, Cruz, and Capp search for a man who got into a boat accident. One person made it out of the boat, but his brother-in-law was still underwater. They decide to leave the area after not locating a body, but then they hear a noise and find the brother-in-law alive. Unfortunately, the entire team runs out of air. Also, their only way out becomes blocked. They’re all trapped underwater and running out of time.
