Next week’s episode of Chicago Med looks like it is going to have some important implications. The season hiatus will be here soon. So, fans will have just one more episode before the show takes a break. How long of a break is still up in the air.

There are always new and interesting characters coming into the hospital. However, this episode features a special character. There is also going to be an event happening that might put one doctor out of a job. Dylan and Ethan in particular are going to have a rough time it seems. Here is the official synopsis.

“Dylan’s loyalty to Med and the police department is challenged when an old family friend and veteran cop exhibits concerning behavior. The annual random drug testing puts a doctor’s career in jeopardy. Ethan tries a risky old-school method on a patient. Will helps Stevie search for her mother.”

It seems that Dylan is going to have to make a decision regarding his friend. As a veteran cop, it is going to be very delicate to traverse the situation. The former police officer is going to have to confront his loyalties, even if they are not in line with one another. If he hangs onto the past too long, the Chicago Med team could end up being compromised.

As one of the most beloved new characters in the One Chicago franchise, Dr. Dylan Scott has a lot of folks pulling for him. Already this season, fans have gone head over heels for Dr. Scott. His compassion and care have made him stand out from the rest. So, fans will be eager to see what happens next week and if he can overcome his conflicting interests.

‘Chicago Med’ Changed One Stars Life ‘Able to Lay Roots’

Next week’s episode also features Will Halstead. The character played by Nick Gehlfuss is going to be helping Stevie find her mother in the upcoming episode. Back in 2020, Gehlfuss spoke with Starry Mag and explained how Chicago Med has changed his life for the better.

It isn’t often that you get that breakthrough gig. However, for Gehlfuss that is what this show has been. Read his comments about the revelation he has had since joining the cast.

“This is the first time that I, as an actor, have been able to lay roots. This show changed my life, I’ll say that. It’s the first time in my career that I’ve had a consistent job on this level.” For the 36-year-old actor, this is a big deal. Very few get to experience the consistency that Chicago Med has brought stars like Gehlfuss.

Much like Chris Meloni landing his role as Elliot Stabler, the consistency and longevity of the role have been that first time for the Will Halstead actor. Gehlfuss has been working in random roles since 2010. Mostly one-off roles here and there across a variety of series. Now, with Chicago Med, the actor has career stability.
