“One Chicago” has been relentless this season when it comes to the drama. And now it appears showrunners are honing in on “Chicago Med” for the most emotional of conflicts.
One of “Chicago Med’s” newest faces, Dr. Stevie Hammer, has worked through an onslaught of conflicts in season seven. The fact is impressive as December 8th premieres only the ninth new episode of the season. One Chicago Center lists several of the doctor’s struggles, including a clash with longtime character Dr. Will Halstead as well as with patients themselves.
However, the last few episodes of “Chicago Med” have proven especially challenging for Dr. Hammer as she battles out and navigates her relationship with her mother Terri. Dr. Hammer has assumed primary care over the older woman. However, Hammer has faced nothing but emotional trouble and trauma as she’s tried to assist Terri. Now, as the character continues to deny medical treatment, we’re left wondering whether Terri will be leaving the show.
According to the outlet, Terri will in fact return to the set of “Chicago Med” this season. However, in what capacity and state we can’t be sure. One of the latest episodes saw Dr. Hammer hunting for her mother all over Chicago as she disappears following a stay at the hospital.
Now, we prepare for the midseason finale, with a special feature on the holidays. Ahead of the new episode, the latest synopsis lets us know a portion of it will focus on Dr. Hammer. The synopsis reads:
“The outcome of Will’s investigation weighs heavily on his mind as he works with Dylan to save the life of a four-month-old patient. Stevie and Vanessa both struggle to keep their secrets…”
Only the new episode, however, promises real insight as to any developments regarding the doctor and Terri’s relationship.
Upcoming ‘Chicago Med’ Episode Features a Highlight on Secrets
The holidays often signify an uptick in white lies and untruths surrounding the traditional practice of gift-giving. Now, as “Chicago Med” fans await the debut of the NBC show’s special holiday episode, we’ve come to learn that we can expect a focus on secrets on Wednesday, December 8th.
The new episode, entitled “Secret Santa Has a Gift For You,” clearly puts an important feature on secrets, although this time of year, those secrets tend to signify happy and meaningful outcomes.
However, as we can see from the above synopsis, not all the secrets being kept this time around point to positive outcomes.
As we know, the fact that Dr. Hammer’s mother is homeless remains a secret yet to be revealed to her coworkers. So, as the other hospital staff intend to celebrate the holidays while carrying out their usual lifesaving duties, Dr. Hammer continues to suffer through a disheartening secret of her own.
