How Kelly Severide’s Return Affects Stellaride’s Epic Love Story on Chicago Fire

Chicago Fire has given fans plenty of romantic storylines to keep them on the edge of their seats. From “Dawsey” to “Brettsey” and beyond, the couples at the helm of Firehouse 51 certainly go through their fair share of drama.
After nine seasons of heartbreak, toxic exes, breakups, makeups, and now marriage, Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) and Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) — also known as “Stellaride” — have new issues with which to contend in Season 12 of Chicago Fire.

Kelly Severide and Stella Kidd face trust issues in Season 12

Although Severide spent much of Season 11 M.I.A. After suddenly leaving to attend an arson investigation program in Alabama and then assisting a federal agency, the Season 12 premiere of Chicago Fire featured a newly-reunited Stellaride.
Picking up six months after Kidd left Chicago to find her husband, it’s clear she had been successful in her mission but their relationship had changed. Trust issues and communication problems have reared their ugly heads within the couple’s marriage and, while Kidd was happy to welcome Severide back, they are toughing it out through a rough patch.
Kidd expressed worry over Severide’s obsession with arson cases, while Severide wanted to keep investigating arson cases in some way. Kidd wasn’t having it, telling her husband that she felt she had been forced to drag him back to Chicago the last time he lost himself in such investigations. Kidd and Severide will both need to compromise to get through this latest hurdle, but Stellaride fans have their fingers crossed.
Look back on how their romance started, and how they got to this point in their marriage below.

When did Stella Kidd and Kelly Severide first hook up?

Kidd made her Firehouse 51 debut as the newest team member in Season 4, Episode 15 (“Bad for the Soul”), and viewers learned that she and Severide had actually met each other years back at the Fire Academy.
Flash-forward to Mouch’s wedding during Season 4, Episode 18 (“On the Warpath”), and Kidd reveals Severide had made a grand romantic gesture while they were trainees. According to her, he came to her home and was “rappelling down from a skylight” while singing Frank Sinatra’s “This Love of Mine.” The downside? Kidd was married at that time and her then-husband, Grant, was not happy.
During Episode 21′ (“Kind of a Crazy Idea”) the pair shared their first kiss at Molly’s Bar after weeks of clear chemistry. During the Season 4 finale, they took their connection to the next level and had sex for the first time. But the moment was ruined — for fans, at least — when it was revealed Kidd’s ex-husband Grant had escaped a psychiatric facility and broken into his former wife’s apartment.
Unbeknownst to Kidd and Severide, he was watching them in bed together while holding a knife.

Stella Kidd and Kelly Severide broke up in Season 5

At the end of the Season 5 premiere (“The Hose or the Animal”), an infuriated Grant attacked Kidd in the alleyway behind Molly’s, but Severide saved her and stabbed Grant — who it turned out was still fighting addiction.
However, Kidd still had sympathy for her ex and declined to press charges for his attack. Instead, she encouraged him to go to rehab. This decision strained her and Severide’s relationship, and the two put a stop to their budding romance before it ever really began. They remained friends throughout the season.

Despite both of them pursuing other relationships throughout the season, they officially began dating at the end of Episode 15 (“Deathtrap”). In order to make sure their relationship keeps moving on the right track, Kidd moves out of Severide’s apartment. In the season finale, Severide called Kidd his girlfriend.
