Despite Severide being a bit of a jerk so far, I really want to see his friendship with Shay highlighted and developed. It’s been said already but is just so remarkable I’m going to say it again: the hot blonde chick is gay. She’s not going to be Severide or Mills or Casey’s romantic interest. And this friendship is already such a contrast to Dawson’s with Casey, because thatwill go down that route.

I know that Severide and Casey are the center of the show and when they patch up things, it’ll be a glorious friendship everything will be wonderful but I hope this here doesn’t slip through the cracks. Shay’s doing Severide a pretty big solid, passing him on some meds and keeping quiet about his condition, and for no motive other than friendship, and she’s obviously conflicted about it, and he knows and is grateful.
