It’s the question that House‘s “Chameron” fans been asking ever since it was announced that Jennifer Morrison would return for the series finale airing May 21: Will Chase and ex-wife Cameron reunite?
Speaking with TVLine at the red carpet for NBC’s Upfront event, where he was representing his new drama Chicago Fire, Jesse Spencer revealed that, yes, he and Once Upon a Time‘s leading lady do share a scene — “briefly,” he emphasized. (Note: The photo accompanying this story is from Season 6.)
“A lot of people came back, actually,” the Aussie added, alluding to the previously announced encores by Olivia Wilde (who first shows up in tonight’s episode), Amber Tamblyn (as Martha Masters) and Kal Penn (Kutner, R.I.P.)
Spencer would not elaborate on the nature of the Chase/Cameron scene, only saying that the finale as a whole “is not going to be the happiest thing in the world” yet does serve up “an appropriately satisfying ending for longtime viewers.” And specific to his alter ego — who quit in last week’s episode and is not seen tonight — he enthused, “Chase has a final moment which I’m very, very happy that they approached.”
Turning to NBC’s Chicago Fire, Spencer describes his Lt. Matthew Casey as “a natural-born leader” and “good soldier” who reports to the characters played by Eamonn Walker (Oz) and Merle Dandridge (Sons of Anarchy). But good soldier or not, “You can’t get away from egos completely in those situations,” he notes. “These guys are called heroes, but at the end of the day people are people and egos abound.”
Chicago Fire will air Wednesdays at 10/9c, premiere date TBA.
