Things are heating up for Violet (Hanako Greensmith) on NBC’s Chicago Fire whose love triangle with boss man Chief Evan Hawkins (Jimmy Nicholas) and ex-boyfriend Gallo (Alberto Rosende) is still very much in play. With only three episodes left to air in May for Season 10, fans can expect to see more on that front.
“The Gallo, Hawkins, Violet love triangle is still alive,” executive producer Andrea Newman tells Deadline. “There’s still a lot of complications between them. It’s not going to be as simple as off she goes with Hawkins. It’s still a tricky situation for all three of them and Gallo ends up very much in between those two.”
She continued, “[Gallo] has been a good friend and that can be very attractive. She’s got herself in between two really great guys who are very different. It’s very complicated.”
In last week’s episode titled “Finish What You Started,” Violet told her mostly secret beau Chief Hawkins that she’s in love with him. She panicked for a brief moment as she didn’t intend to drop the four-letter word just yet but Hawkins revealed the feeling is mutual. The relationship is complicated because Hawkins is in a position of power as her superior.
Unfortunately for them, they were caught sharing a kiss at the firehouse, and her ex Gallo—among others— heard the gossip. Even though he was jealous, he proved to be a loyal friend by keeping her secret and by not judging her. But the more she grows frustrated with keeping her relationship with Hawkins off the radar, her bond with Gallo strengthens.
And while Violet’s love life is thriving, she feels like her job is being threatened by newcomer Emma Jacobs (Caitlin Carver), the latter of whom is spreading rumors that Violet can’t do the job she was hired for.
“We’ve had so much fun with the Emma character and the actress is great,” Newman shares. “She’s a very intriguing character who will surprise everybody at every turn. She is driven, strong, and a tough woman with her own agenda that is yet to be revealed.”
Adds fellow EP Derek Haas,” Violet just called her a sociopath in the episode that just aired last week and she also says that [Emma] is trying to take her job. That storyline is continuing, I will say. There’s still more to be revealed in the coming episodes that are a lot of fun.”
