'Chicago Fire': Severide Must Decide Between Renee And Experimental Back Surgery (VIDEO)

Oh no, it was just false hope. Things were looking good for Severide and Renee (Sarah Shahi) on "Chicago Fire." He was sidelined from the job for a while and had decided to move to Madrid with her. But instead, he made the call this week to stay in Chicago and get an experimental surgery for his back.

One of television's hottest firefighters can't be off the job for too long, right?

Perhaps it was inevitable, but it was fun to speculate how "Chicago Fire" would handle its star being in Spain. TV Fanatic said the decision wasn't shocking for that very reason. The star of the show needs to be in Chicago.

"If you would've come with me to Madrid," Renee said to him, "The sky would’ve been the limit for us."

Alas, it didn't happen. That doesn't mean Renee couldn't drop by the firehouse the next time she's stateside, though.

"Chicago Fire" continues on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. EST on NBC.
