NBC‘s “One Chicago” franchise has been on a long hiatus for several weeks now, however, we’re slowly approaching the midseason finales as they debut on December 8th. Ahead of the midseason finales, the network finally let “Chicago Med” fans in on upcoming plots within the new episode.

Entitled “Secret Santa Has a Gift For You,” the holiday episode of “Chicago Med” promises some secrets between staff members. And of course, the usual lifesaving efforts which debut every Wednesday.

As CarterMatt states, “Chicago Med’s” midseason finale debuts on its own little island. That is, there will be no additional episodes premiering following this one until the new year. In this way, writers could dedicate a little more time and creativity in putting together the special holiday episode.

As to the new episode’s plot, we can finally provide Outsiders the official synopsis ahead of the December 8th debut:

“The outcome of Will’s investigation weighs heavily on his mind as he works with Dylan to save a four-month old patient. Stevie and Vanessa both struggle to keep their secrets. Crockett and Blake work with Abrams to save a patient in need of a liver transplant.”

So, as we can tell, obviously our “Chicago Med” doctors will be performing their usual heroic deeds. However, in the midst we’ll follow two of our health professionals as they navigate their own secrets. Therefore, it will be interesting to see how the upcoming holiday season factors into the new episode. However, based on the title, it might be safe to assume “Chicago Med’s” doctors will host some sort of festive Secret Santa event.

‘Chicago Med’ Fans Relieved to See Departure of One Character

While we anxiously await “Chicago Med’s” upcoming holiday episode, fans simultaneously took to Reddit to share their thoughts on one “One Chicago” character.

Prior to actress Torrey DeVitto’s departure from “Chicago Med,” fans were frustrated at her character, Dr. Manning’s, lack of development and overall personality traits.

In a post simply entitled “Dr. Manning,” “Med” fans let loose their broad spectrum of reactions regarding the character.

Interestingly, while Dr. Manning has remained a constant prior to her departure this season since “Chicago Med’s” beginnings, many fans were not entirely upset to see her leave.

In the Reddit thread, one fan wrote, “[Manning’s] an emotional wreck every single episode. [Freaking out] on people when things aren’t how she likes it.”

Another fan contributed to the discussion, “I don’t like this character. I mean, she’s supposed to be a strong woman, which she is, [given] that she’s a single mom whose husband died in the army.” However, they continued, “But her medical decisions are questionable to a lot of fans, and nobody’s really liking her relationship.”

Still, other Dr. Manning fans lamented the character’s departure; after all, Outsiders are entitled to their opinions. However, it appears this particular “Chicago Med” regular previously drew a lot of controversy.
