Oh, please, say it ain’t so!
NBC has just dropped the eagerly-anticipated promo for Chicago Fire Season 6 last night, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, and things do not bode well for our beloved Lieutenant Matt Casey (Jesse Spencer).
As we all remember, the last time we saw the Firehouse 51 team, they had responded to a call at a burning warehouse. Most of the team went in, things went south really fast, and they left us hanging for months without knowing who would survive that horrible inferno.
That final sequence still makes my heart ache, with Mouch having a heart attack in the middle of the fire, and Casey trapped in a room with absolutely no way out, saying goodbye to Dawson. Now, after a long wait this summer, NBC has finally released the promo and a poster — which you can see at the top of the page — and it looks like The Powers That Be just love to torture us when it comes to the fate of our beloved characters.
In the promo, it looks like Casey is found, but we also get what it looks like a funeral scene, with a very prominent shot of Casey’s photo. Even though Jesse Spencer is still front and center in the Chicago Fire season 6 poster, things do not look good for Casey.
See for yourself:
I doubt Jesse Spencer is actually leaving, but then again, you never know with these shows, right?
But if they kill Matt Casey, so help me God, we will riot!
Chicago Fire returns with its sixth season on Thursday, September 28, at 10pm on NBC.
