Fans Excited for “Chicago Med” Season 8 Following Fiery Season 7 Finale
The season 7 finale, titled “And Now We Come to the End,” left off with a huge bang. Dr. Dylan Scott, played by Guy Lockard, ended the season in an apartment building as it caught on fire. Fans could only assume the worst for the character. This worried fans about his character in particular, as Scott has only been on the show for one season.
However, Lockard has posted several photos and videos in-character, so fans of the show can mostly rest assured that he is still in the season. The official Twitter for One Chicago tweeted a photo of him, captioning it: “Lookin’ good, doc! #ChicagoMed @GuyLockardReal.”
Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss), was also trapped in the smokey, fiery apartment alongside Scott. Additionally, Dr. Pam Blake (Sarah Rafferty) suffered from a mini-stroke during her career-threatening surgery, leaving fans unsure of her fate. This event also had viewers wondering what was going to happen as a result with her and Dr. Crockett Marcel (Dominic Rains), who was the decision-maker while she was under the knife. There are so many questions that need answered, and viewers of the show couldn’t be more ready for the new season.
The show is easily addicting with the dramatic plotlines. One fan tweeted out: “Just discovered Chicago Med and I’ve gone through three series in two days.”
Season 8 of the popular show is back on September 21 on NBC.
