Lieutenant Wendy Seager from the Office of Fire Investigation has been a great addition to the show.
The character seemed to have eyes for Lieutenant Kelly Severide, but he was deeply involved with Stella Kidd.
Despite that relationship, the chemistry and tension between Seager and Severide worked very well.
And anytime Seager popped up in an episode, it was a heavy hint that Severide would get to investigate arson cases.
Severide was always at his best when he got to put on his detective hat. The show will sorely miss it if the character is permanently gone.
Taylor Kinney, the actor who plays Severide, has been on a leave of absence for a long while. But Chicago Fire fans hope he returns for Season 12.
Andy Allo as Wendy Seager on Chicago Fire
Actress Andy Allo has been a great addition to the Chicago Fire cast. She first surfaced in Season 8 and played an important part in several episodes.
She returned for Chicago Fire Season 10, working with Severide on intense cases.
And in Season 11, Andy popped up again to participate in some spicy storylines.
So far, Andy has appeared in 14 episodes, and with the chemistry she shared with Miranda Rae Mayo (Stella Kidd), the writers should explore that more in Season 12.
A fun scene is shared in the clip below, where Kidd and Seager teamed up to prank new the new firefighter. Not only was it funny, but it broke the tension between the ladies over Severide.
