On the 100th episode, which airs Tuesday, Severide is starting to re-evaluate his priorities. And a surprising revelation from his former colleague (and now Chicago Med character) Jeff Clarke (Jeff Hephner) couldn't come at a better time.
"We've done four-and-a-half seasons where Severide has definitely been ... an emotionally free spirit, I would say," executive producer Derek Haas tells TVGuide.com. "He doesn't get too encumbered with the people who come in and out of his life. ... Now he's in his mid-30s and he's trying to figure out what he's going to do with the rest of his life."
As if in response, an interesting opportunity comes along that could change his life in countless ways, when Severide learns of an unexpected connection between him and someone he encounters on a call. How he responds to this new info will shock you.
