Haas’s Sunday morning Q&A…when he answered that Severide and Shay’s baby storyline has sailed and was ‘unlikely’ to ever happen…

Does he mean ‘unlikely’ because Shay is dead?

Or ‘unlikely’ because some people weren’t too happy with that storyline to begin with?

I am thinking it is the former…why did he put quotations around the word unlikely? It destroys all my hope.
