On the personal side, Shay’s attempt to get pregnant doesn’t take, while Hermann’s wife goes into labor with a little one of her own. An emergency C-section is required and the baby isn’t getting enough oxygen, but it all works out in the end. Although Shay and Severide aren’t having a kid, they become godparents to Hermann’s son. Then Renée returns to reveal she’s preggers with Severide’s child! Poor Shay is left on the outs as the two embrace and appear to be starting their own family.

On the romance front, Mills asks Dawson to tell him she doesn’t have feelings for Casey.

“I can’t tell you what you need to hear,” she replies. “It wouldn’t be the truth.”

Bruising the young firefighter’s ego even more is the fact that he didn’t make the rescue squad. In response, he goes to the Chicago Police Department training center to pick up an application. Is Mills heading to the spin-off?!

Finally, Dawson checks in on Casey at home and finds him living in a pigsty, basically.

“Nothing makes sense,” says a grief-stricken Casey, breaking down in Dawson’s arms. So hold off on your ‘shipper squees because it looks like it’s going to be a long road for these two.
