Severide walks into the apartment and the only signs of Shay are a broken vase and an empty bottle of liquor. Back at the house McAuley is giving Dawson the good news that he has asked to be her partner. She looks thrilled. Dawson, the writing it literally on the wall. Even your locker knows Shay belongs on top of you.
On her way out Severide stops Dawson. He needs her help finding Shay. She says, “I made my overture, she chose Devon.” Oh, there’s that jealousy. Monica Raymund’s face does this incredible, and brief, wave of hurt as she says it and then she’s back to tough, I don’t give a crap Dawson. Kelly is pissed that Dawson is happy while turning her back on Shay. He doesn’t give a shit who was wrong, he just wants Dawson to fix it. This is what we’ve been screaming at our TVs for weeks. You broke it, now fucking fix it, Dawson. Dawson tries all of Shay’s usual spots but no one has seen her. Casey agrees to help by driving Dawson around. He says, “Nobody knows her like you do.” For once, you’re right, buddy.
