Chicago Fire Spoilers NCIS

Are things about to heat up for Chicago Fire‘s Sylvie? What’s the advanced buzz on the NCIS crossover? is Criminal Minds about to make you blush? Read on for answers to those questions plus scoop on many other shows. (You can and should email any brand-new Qs to InsideLine@tvline.com.)

Chicago Fire‘s Sylvie has been laying low the first half of Season 11. Will she have an exciting storyline coming back from the winter break? Maybe more focus on paramedicine, or her friendships with Cruz, Mouch or Stella, or visits from her family? (It’s been a while since we’ve seen Amelia.) –Bridget
Sylvie “has got a lot going on,” co-showrunner Andrea Newman says, adding that troublemaker Emma’s return “will end up impacting [Sylvie] as well.” Plus, the paramedic is “going to have a lot of fun with Dylan. But there’s always the lingering question of: Was Casey the love of her life? And will that make it impossible to move on?”

Is there anything interesting in store for Carlos when 9-1-1: Lone Star premieres in January? –Sarah
Well, for starters, early on in Season 4 Carlos will reveal a pretty big secret to TK. Oh, and Carlos’ life will be put in jeopardy when he investigates the disappearance of someone close to him.

Any Resident scoop on Bruce Greenwood’s character, Dr. Bell? — Marilyn
Fear not, Marilyn: Despite Bell’s recent MS flare-up and his suggestion of traveling back to Minnesota, there are no plans to write out either Bell or his new wife, Kit. “They’re not leaving, not at all. We’re not building to that,” series co-creator Amy Holden Jones confirms, adding with a laugh, “Unless one of them has a horrible surprise to spring on me!” Rather, as Bell continues to manage his fluctuating symptoms, Jones teases that “we’re also interested in him as a teacher. Teaching might be a good avenue for him, though I’m sure we’ll see him operate again.”
