‘Chicago Med’: Is Sharon’s Health in Jeopardy After Calling the FBI?

by Taylor Cunningham

When Chicago Med returns this week, Sharon’s career and health may be on the line.

The One Chicago drama left us with a major cliffhanger last month. As the Gaffney staff was enjoying their annual Christmas party, the FBI broke in and arrested Gaffney’s own Dr. Matt Cooper and Vasick Labs rep Jessa Rinaldi.

As it turns out, Sharon Goodwin had called the feds on the two after she and Halstead uncovered their fraudulent dealings. And while Sharon theoretically did the right thing, Chicago Med is teasing that a lot of trouble is ahead for the other doctors and nurses—especially Sharon.

But aside from her possible legal ramifications, it appears that the head of medical services may also be dealing with subsequent health problems.

TV Insider recently got its hands on an exclusive clip of the upcoming winter premiere. In it, Sharon, who is diabetic, checks her blood glucose levels with a smartphone app. And the reading shows that her levels are up from 223 to 240, which could put her potentially put her life at risk.

“How’s that 15 minutes [of fame] going for you?” Dr. Daniel Charles asks as Sharon discreetly puts her phone away. “I’m worried about the hospital,” she admits.

The episode, titled No Good Deed Goes Unpunished… in Chicago, airs this Wednesday at 8/7 CT on NBC.

Dr. Choi Will Return in Season 7 of ‘Chicago Med’

Last season on Chicago Med, Dr. Ethan Choi was the victim of a near-fatal shooting. And throughout the first half of this year’s drama, Choi has been recovering off-screen.

Choi has only appeared in two episodes of the current season so far, which has prompted rumors of the character’s exit. But don’t fear Outsiders, because Chicago Med‘s showrunners have confirmed that the doctor will soon return.

“Actually, we’re gonna see him again in Episode 12,” Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider told Cinemablend. “So, in three more episodes, we’ll see him again. He’s still in recovery, and then he will come back a little bit later in the season. He’s going to have a very moving story with Dr. Charles in Episode 12.”

Choi’s actor Brian Tee recently renewed his contract with the NBC drama, so it’s clear that Tee has no plans to leave Chicago Med in the near future. He only took a break from his Gaffney gig so he could film a new Amazon Prime project alongside Nicole Kidman.

When Ethan Choi returns to the screen, we’ll watch as he battles both the mental and physical wounds surrounding his attack. But aside from that, the showrunners were pretty tight-lipped about what’s in store for the ED’s head physician.

The only clue that Frolov and Schneider gave was that we’ll “learn more about his background, his past, his family.”
