How will the fireman drama’s favorite EMT deal with the news that Severide (Taylor Kinney) had fathered a child with another woman?
Read on for the spoilers teased by showrunner Danielle Gebler:
“Shay is inherently a very strong person — the work she does every day and the things she has to see are not things the average person can handle,” she says. “So Shay can handle a lot of adversity, and she’s also a person who has a very strong sense of self. So we’re not going to see a huge tailspin either way.”
Gelber adds that the show “discussed every version of a pregnancy scenario between those three people that you could possibly imagine,” but ultimately the best drama would result from the scenario in which Renee (Sarah Shahi) ended up with a bun in the oven.
“We’ve covered it all internally, rejected a lot of ideas, embraced others, and I think when you see the results, people will be happy with what we’ve chosen.”
While Shay and Severide will likely remain close throughout this sticky ordeal, the same can’t be said about Shay’s friendship with one other fellow FD cohorts. Geller teases that “a shocking experience on the job that will threaten her close friendship with Dawson for a time” early in the season.
‘Chicago Fire’ season 2 premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 10/9c on NBC.
