Chicago Med Season 7 returns with a new episode this week. In last week’s episode, Sharon Goodwin dealt with the fallout of the Vascom scandal, and Dr. Marcel and Dr. Blake dealt with a complicated dilemma with a patient who needed a transplant. Episode 12 proves to be even more shocking, with the promo showing a group of surgeons collapsing during a procedure. The promo also teased a Chicago Fire character will appear in episode 12, but some fans might have missed it.

What happens in ‘Chicago Med’ Season 7 Episode 12?

Although things haven’t been easy at Gaffney Chicago Medical Center, it looks like they are about to get even more complicated in Chicago Med Season 7 Episode 12. In the promo video, Dr. Crockett Marcel observes a surgery performed by Dr. Pamela Blake. However, before she can begin, she and her entire team collapse.

Episode 12 is titled “What You Don’t Know Can’t Hurt You.” The synopsis for the new episode on One Chicago Center reads, “Will and Stevie get stuck in the middle of a marital face-off. Dr. Blake’s entire surgical team mysteriously collapses during a liver transplant. Charles encourages Ethan to reconcile with his father.”

A ‘Chicago Fire’ character will make a special guest appearance

The promo video for Chicago Med Season 7 Episode 12 revealed that a Chicago Fire character will appear in the new episode. Crockett tries to help the collapsed surgeons, but a man bars his way saying, “Opening that door will put everyone out here at risk.” That man happens to be Harold Capp.

Capp is a firefighter with Rescue Squad 3 who has been on Chicago Fire since the beginning. There’s likely an important reason he will show up in episode 12. The One Chicago franchise has dealt with dangerous infectious diseases before and they may be dealing with one again.

In 2019, the One Chicago franchise aired a three-part crossover special titled “Infection Part I, II, and III.” The crew from Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago P.D. had to work together to save the city from a flesh-eating disease, and luckily they were successful.

It doesn’t appear that this week’s new One Chicago episodes will be crossover episodes. However, Capp appearing in Chicago Med Season 7 Episode 12 hints that there could be a dangerous disease unleashed on the surgeons in the room.
