Is Sylvie Brett really leaving the show? Here is everything we know so far.
If you are a fan of the hit show Chicago Fire, then we are certain that you have been awaiting the premiere of the finale episode like others for months. There is no question that the anticipation for its release is at an all-time high, and the fandom is more active than before to get their hands on every new detail that has been popping up all over social media. If you too have been surfing the fan pages for new developments about Chicago Fire Season 11 finale.
Then we are certain that you too might have come across rumours circulating stating that Sylvie Brett may be leaving the show in the finale episode.
This update has caused a bit of distress among the fans by spreading like wildfire, causing more chaos and heated debates among the die-hard fans of Sylvie Brett and One Chicago fans in general. So, to reduce some tension, we’re here to clear up the rumors and get straight to the point. Right now, there has been no official confirmation from the show’s producers, but some clues have hinted at a possible departure for this beloved character.
The recently released official synopsis of the finale was the one to begin all the departure talks, as it stated, “Brett waits for life-changing news; Herrmann encounters a psychic with a grave warning on a call; Kidd finds a new lead on the Homeland Security case.” Can you guess from the synopsis what started these rumors? …. Yes, you are right! The short sentence, “Brett waits for life-changing news,” was enough to create such major speculation, raising brows from the fans, which led them to wonder if she would be leaving the show.
For context, if you have streamed the ongoing season, then you might have noticed too that her character has taken a step back compared to others on the show, so with the release of such a synopsis, the curiosity of the fans got the best of them, and their queries aren’t invalid, which holds a strong point that the chances of Sylvie Brett will have been portrayed by Kara Killmer leaving the show after the finale might not be completely off the table!
The time might be right to get our farewells ready for her departure; however, it’s important to note that these rumors should be taken with a grain of salt until an official announcement is made. As for the first question that has kind of been answered, Brett might not leave the show in the finale, as we now know that she will be receiving life-changing news at some point during the course of the episode. But every story has two sides. Even though she will be present, there is a chance that the finale might be building towards her exit from the show, like Taylor Kinney’s.
She might be moving back to Oregon, as Casey lives there too, and they might once again try to build a relationship, which can be a good plot device for her absence. In conclusion, if Sylvie does leave the show, it will undoubtedly be a sad moment for fans who have grown attached to her character over the years. However, Chicago Fire Season 11 has proven time and time again that it can continue to deliver compelling storylines and characters even after the major cast has parted ways from the show, as seen in the prior season too.
Whether Sylvie stays or goes, one thing is for sure: The outpouring of love that the fans have shown towards her character for so many years is commendable for the One Chicago fandom, which continues to flourish each year! For now, we’ll just have to wait and see what the final episode has in store for her character and hope for the best that she will stay on the show for a long run and have a good character arc, which she truly deserves to have and benefit from her experience, which makes her different and unique from other Chicago Fire characters we have seen over the last eleven seasons.
