In Chicago Med Season 7, Dr. Crockett Marcel first met Avery Quinn (Johanna Braddy) after being admitted to Gaffney Chicago Medical Center. She was a patient who was suffering from liver issues. Also, the patient happens to be Dr. Blake’s daughter. 

Dr. Blake and Marcel had a heated debate about the best treatment for her daughter. In turn, Blake insisted that she operate on Avery, but it would be a “breach of ethics.” In the end, Avery made a full recovery and even asked Marcel on a date, to which he accepted. But, the fall finale proved that Avery isn’t the only woman Marcel is fawning over.

In the Chicago Med Season 7 fall finale, Marcel and Blake shared a kiss at the Christmas party. However, Marcel is still dating Avery. In addition, Blake just became his mentor, so the kiss further complicates their professional relationship. So, will Marcel and Blake pursue a romantic relationship? Or, will he stay with Avery? It seems the Chicago Med showrunners have some thoughts regarding the complicated situation. 

In an interview with TV Guide, showrunners Andrew Schneider and Diane Frolov teased the show will further explore Marcel and Blake’s dynamic in the second half of Season 7. 

“It’s a bit of a triangle for him [Crockett] there with Avery, and it’s awkward, right?” said Frolov. “Dr. Blake does not know anything about him having gone out with Avery. So that’s awkward. We’re going to continue playing that.”

Who will Marcel choose, Avery or Blake?

At the moment, it’s too early to tell who Marcel will choose. But, he sure does have some decision-making to do. While talking to TV Guide, the showrunner shared that Avery and Blake would be “not too pleased” when they learned about Marcel’s actions. 

Although it’s hard to tell who Marcel would choose, he has to decide fast. Marcel has a strong connection to Avery and Blake. So, the decision will undoubtedly be challenging. But, it’s necessary because if both women find out what Marcel is doing, he may lose them. In turn, he will end up alone. So, will Marcel choose Avery or Blake? For now, fans will have to wait and see what happens in the second half of Season 7. 

Chicago Med Season 7 returns to NBC on Jan. 5, 2022.
