In the episode titled "Carry Their Legacy," Severide raced Anna to the hospital for chemotherapy; however, Anna sadly died in the following episode. In the end, it's revealed she signed a do-not-resuscitate (DNR) order, which left Severide to mourn her death.

In the fourth episode of Season 11, Severide tells Violet that after losing Anna, he felt "like a boat cut loose from the dock. Just lost, nothing to hold on to." He added that he "saw Anna wherever [he] went, too, for the longest time," but noted that his crew at 51 always checked in on him, and he "knew if [he] started to drift, they'd hold on tight."

New episodes of Chicago Fire air Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on NBC.
