I'm crying.

Mikami Tries to Revive Hawkins | NBC’s Chicago Fire

Chicago Fire has supplied us with some gut-wrenching moments this season. Exhibit A: In the third episode of Season 11, the brave Evan Hawkins (Jimmy Nicholas) was tragically killed when a building collapsed on him, leaving behind his girlfriend, Violet Mikami.

How to Watch

Watch the Season 13 premiere of Chicago Fire Wednesday, September 25 at 9/8c on NBC

Violet was clearly devastated to say goodbye to Hawkins, and it looks like Hanako Greensmith, who plays Mikami, will miss him equally as much. In a sweet series of photos posted to Greensmith’s Instagram account, she paid homage to the time the two had on the series together.

The first photo showed a tense moment from the show of Hawkins on the job, and then Greensmith posted some stills of the couple eyeing each other from across the room at a dinner party. Then, we got an exclusive backstage look of her and Nicholas confidently posing and smiling together in front of a Chicago Fire Truck.

To make things even cuter and more intimate, she posted a hilarious mirror selfie of them slathered in shaving cream inside their trailer. She also included a bittersweet snapshot of Nicholas pointing at the camera playfully, and one of him smiling inside the fire truck. And to finish things off, we then see a photo of Nicholas peacefully standing in front of a tree on a sunny day.

“What a year. Scenes have been so quiet without you @jimmynicks. ️‍🩹 Love you.” Greensmith captioned in a heartfelt message.

Although Chicago Fire won’t be the same without Evan Hawkins, there will still be plenty of action-packed moments to tune into. Watch Chicago Fire on NBC Wednesdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock.
