Warning: Do not proceed if you have not watched Wednesday’s season finale of Chicago Med. You are entering spoiler territory.
With Chicago Med shutting down earlier than expected due to coronavirus, original plans for the remaining episodes of the season were scrapped. But Wednesday’s episode, which served as the de facto season five finale, ended up leaving enough questions for the upcoming season to answer.
The episode, titled “A Needle in the Heart,” shed light in a surprising way on Crockett’s (Dominic Rains) past that added an intriguing layer to his already complicated persona: Years ago, he lost a baby, Harper, to leukemia — a secret he requested Natalie (Torrey DeVitto) keep, out of fear he’ll be treated differently. Then, there was Ethan’s (Brian Tee) terrifying hostage situation, which only compounded the issues he and April (Yaya DaCosta) have been facing, even before she came clean about her kiss with Crockett. And there was the concerning reality that Hannah’s (Jessy Schram) recovery from addiction may not be going as smoothly as Will (Nick Gehlfuss) may have hoped.
With the season cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic, ET sent off our biggest finale questions to showrunners Diane Frolov and Andy Schneider over email to get answers on where Chicago Med goes from here, what their original plans were with the season’s unproduced episodes and if a certain someone could be returning in the near future.
