Are we here already? The Chicago Med midseason finale is upon us, and it’s a grim affair as the hits keep coming for some of the docs. Meanwhile, the delayed Chicago P.D. episode takes us on an intriguing moral journey with one of the more silent members of the squad. Chicago Fire was on a bye week in consideration of the election [insert the obligatory dumpster-fire joke here].
Three cheers for the Cubbies! It took 108 years to break the curse, but the Chicago Cubs defeated the Cleveland Indians in a World Series Game 7 nail-biter that had all of the Windy City faithful in celebration mode. As a gesture of solidarity for Wednesday’s momentous event, Chicago P.D. was pushed back a week in anticipation of the series finisher — but Chicago Fire and Chicago Med continued on as planned. So, let’s talk about those, shall we?
This week, the Chicago shows had a running theme of “What happens when our characters get personally involved with the people they encounter on the job?” Sometimes, it works out and ends up one of the happiest “yay” moments the show’s ever had; sometimes, it’s about accepting your coworker isn’t you and needs to be set free from your judgment; and other times, it results in a punch right to the feelspot that’ll probably never heal. Here’s how One Chicago went down this week.
This week’s One Chicago saw two of its most controversial figures come face-to-face with their individual impulsivities on Chicago Fire and Chicago Med (Chicago P.D. had a bye week), and the results were vastly different for each of them. Here’s our breakdown of what happened to Chicago’s finest:
This week, One Chicago stepped into some new territory within the landscape of wild society, covering everything from maniacally jealous exes to cyber trolls who take things way too far to toeing the waters of patient consent and then some. Here’s what happened on all three Chicago shows this week.
The One Chicago shows are always at their most intense whenever it’s one of their own who needs his or her team to be, as the P.D. title for the week dubs, firing on all cylinders. This time, the stakes are just as high as when Matt Casey’s “girl” (for lack of a better descriptor for their on-off-on-off thing) Hallie was taken down in the early days of Chicago Fire … which means someone’s gonna bite it in a bad way and yes, Voight’s involved. Well, sorta.
This week’s Chicago series dug deep into some touchy territories, once again proving this show bubble is unafraid to go there and test its characters’, well, character. Continuing in our weekly series of One Chicago breakdowns, here’s what happened to our favorite police and hospital friends this time.
Since Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., and Chicago Med don’t exist in individual vacuums, we’re going to be delving into each week’s new slate with a combined ‘One Chicago’ recap series that breaks down what happened during the new episodes, why it matters, and how this series so nicely ripples and connects as we go. Hopping from House 51 to the station and onto Med (and, eventually, the courtroom for Chicago Justice) is gonna be a blast…just not the kind we need the truck squad to come out for.
Changes are ahead at the Gaffney Chicago Medical Center when Chicago Med returns.
After Reese (Rachel DiPillo) rejected her pathology match, Charles (Oliver Platt) offers her a new job as a psych resident, though he’ll have his hands full when his elder daughter (Mekia Cox) starts working at the hospital. “There’s some strains in the relationship, which will reveal a lot about his past,” EP Andrew Schneider tells EW.
Medical professionals are supposed to have the answers and heal their patients, but what happens when they are sick? That’s one of the stories in season 2 that the stars of Chicago Med tease in a new interview with EW.
In season 1, nurse April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta) was diagnosed with tuberculosis, something that will weigh heavily on the character, both personally and professionally.
