‘Chicago Med’ Attempts to Perform a ‘Christmas Miracle’ for One Patient in Winter Finale

by Joe Rutland

It’s that time of year where TV shows make an attempt to add a holiday touch. For Chicago Med, it’s a “Christmas miracle.”

The NBC drama, which is part of Dick Wolf’s One Chicago franchise, does its part to add a special twist in its plots.

Outsiders, we get some help in looking at this episode with Cinema Blend.

So, the show puts the final bow on Season 7 in a winter finale titled Secret Santa Has A Gift For You.

What is the Chicago Med winter finale about? Let’s take a look below at the episode synopsis.

Dr. Will Halstead, played by Nick Gehlfuss, awaits the outcome of an investigation. He works closely with Dylan Scott, played by Guy Lockard, to save the life of a 4-month-old patient. Stevie Hammer, played by Kristen Hager, and Vanessa Taylor, played by Asjha Cooper, are looking to keep their secrets. Crockett Marcel, played by Dominic Rains, and Pamela Blake, played by Sarah Rafferty, work with Sam Abrams, played by Bennett Brown, to save a patient in need of a liver transplant.

This episode is going to be must-see TV if you have been following Chicago Med this season. Even if you have not, Outsiders, a Dick Wolf-created show always strives to provide solid drama and excitement.

Chicago Med will be on Wednesday at 8 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. Central, on NBC.

‘Chicago Med’ Fans Want To Know If Yaya DaCosta Might Return To Show

A lot of fans of the NBC medical drama remember Yaya DaCosta being part of the cast.

She played April Sexton in the show’s first six seasons.

What do the plans on Chicago Med have aligned for a return?

Not much. DaCosta is currently starring in a FOX series titled Our Kind of People. 

There has not been any word about the show’s renewal for another season. Still, fan website One Chicago Center believes that should the show get canceled, it’s not going to lead to a return by DaCosta to the show.

She did tell TV Line in October that she’d gladly return as a guest star.

“My experience on Chicago Med was absolutely lovely,” she said. “I loved the cast and crew. And it was difficult to leave on a personal level. But not on a professional level.”

What do the showrunners say about it all? They never viewed April as gone. As in never coming back.

As for a goodbye turn, they say “we didn’t really discuss [a goodbye] because we don’t see that April is gone in the same way. In the sense that we know April’s OK.”

Also, they said April is studying to be a nurse. It could lead to a return at some point.
