The following is some Chicago Fire season 8 news we didn’t expect to hear — but some, nonetheless, that we’re very happy with. Monica Raymund will be coming back for another episode as Gabby Dawson!
According to Entertainment Weekly, Monica will be returning for the upcoming November 20 midseason finale, on in which the character will be returning to pay respects to Otis, help her cause down in Puerto Rico, and also reconnect with her Firehouse 51 family. We have to think that Matt Casey is one of the people who is high on that list, but what that reunion looks like remains very much to be seen.
One thing that is clear at the moment is that Raymund is more than happy to make it back into the Chicago Fire world. Speaking to the aforementioned publication, the actress had the following to say:
“Coming back to the show was a homecoming for me … The cast of Chicago Fire will always be my family, and it was so wonderful to work with them again. It was such a positive experience returning to the family, and I’m so happy and grateful for a chance to work with all of them again!
“Fans can expect sparks to fly from the Dawson and Casey reunion. Dawson and Casey will always have an unbreakable bond, and their love is a special love that I think will forever stay alive. The fans don’t want to miss this episode — we get to seep Dawson and Casey’s love in a new light.”
Given what we often see on Chicago Fire midseason finales, we are absolutely expecting something that is jam-packed full of drama and action. There’s also a good chance for a cliffhanger-of-sorts moving into the second part of the season in the new year.
Does Dawson’s return open the door for a reunion between her and Casey — or, is this something that better allows for Casey to move forward in his love life? We think that all options are on the table, and it really comes down to the mechanics that the NBC series uses in order to tell its story.
