Gabby’s new role as a foster mother causes her to question her hard worked career choice to become a firefighter in “Chicago Fire”. Gabby and Casey’s relationship faces a huge milestone as the two learn to raise a child, which proves to be a life changing experience.
According to TV Line, an exclusive video of “Chicago Fire” season 5 shows Gabby revealing her fears to Herrmann, about Casey and her dangerous career which could again make little Louie become an orphan. “Casey and I are running into the same burning building,” she says in tears, and adds, “And sometimes, things go wrong, and if they do, then Louie’s… alone again.”
Whereas, Herrmann reassures her by saying, “You are a great firefighter, and you are a great mother. You got this.” And makes her understand that there’s nothing to worry about. To make his point clearer and evident, he says,“You just discovered the hardest part of this job for any of us mothers and fathers,” .
What occupies our mind is that whether Gabby is actually right in being worried. Jesse Spencer ,the “Chicago Fire” star, spoke to TV Guide and said, “Now they’ve got a kid in the midst of everything else that’s going on,”, and adds, “I think it’s definitely made them stronger. Casey was not initially down with the idea of adopting a child, but not because he didn’t want kids.
It was sort of this back and forth of, ‘Are we ready? Are we not ready? What are we doing?’ But I think they’re pretty tight now. … It’s just an adjustment period. I think it’s trying to adjust to having someone that you really must love unconditionally and look after and think about the future. It’s something Casey’s always wanted; it just sort of came in a way that he didn’t expect. But sometimes things like that are good”
“Chicago Fire” season 5 premieres on NBC at 9/8c on 11th October.
