‘Chicago Med’ Producers Hint at ‘Major Emergency’ & ‘Big Ending’ to Winter Finale

by Anna Dunn

The Chicago Med producers are hinting at a “major emergency” and a “big ending” for the upcoming mid-season finale. The 12th episode of the season sounds like one you won’t want to miss if you’ve been keeping up so far.

In a recent interview with TV Insider, Chicago Med bosses Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider teased that this episode is going to have massive consequences. The two came on to talk about the holiday-themed episode, but we wouldn’t expect anything too cheerful.

When asked if there were any major emergencies coming up soon, Schneider didn’t hold back.

“Oh my God, Episode 12 has a major emergency, but we can’t tell you what it is,” he said. Oh boy.

Additionally, when they were asked about how the current investigation is going to affect Will, the bosses got honest.

“It’s going to have a very big ending [and] come to a real head in the [winter] finale,” Frolov said. “After we come back from the break, there’s going to be repercussions from what happens in the finale.”

Mid-season finales tend to end on huge cliffhangers, and by the sound of this, Chicago Med will be no exception to that rule this year.

Schneider said that the events of the upcoming mid-season finale will have a big impact “particularly for Will and Goodwin,” so fans should keep an eye on those two while watching the episode.

Chicago Med airs on Wednesdays at 8/7 Central on NBC. But after the mid-season finale, it won’t come back until 2022.

One Character is Dealing With the Trauma From Last Year’s ‘Chicago Med’ Finale

With a mid-season finale on the horizon, some are reflecting on how last season’s finale left Dr. Ethan Choi with some serious trauma. During an argument, a patient pulled a gun on Choi and shot him in the chest. He was miraculously able to survive, but a traumatic event like that can leave some serious mental wounds.

Now, Choi is dealing with the trauma of getting shot like that.

“He’s been changed,” Frolov said. “It’s been a very traumatic event for him to be shot like this. And he’s been reevaluating himself because of it.”

He also has to take the time to recover physically, with some serious back problems.

Since he had to recover from such a serious attack, Choi has only been in a few episodes this season. Fans seriously miss him. We thought he’d be back for good when he returned in episodes seven and eight, but he hurt his back working on a patient and had to leave again.

Hopefully, Choi will get better soon, and heading into this midseason finale, we’ll learn more about the investigation, Goodwin, and Will.
