The first episode of the season

Fans got a bit of a teaser of the new season before going on a break that won’t end until after the new year begins! So, what were the episodes actually about? According to One Chicago Center, the first episode was everything that fans were anticipating. Titled “When Did We Begin To Change,” the show of course incorporates the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic into the storyline, although the episode put a lot of focus on the relationship between Dr. Will Halstead and his girlfriend, Dr. Hannah Asher, who have now moved in together.

We learn a bit about her addiction and the strain it is putting on those who care about her the most, and fans were also surprised to see Anita admit to some personal struggles as well. Dr. Charles is dealing with his complicated relationship with his daughter, as we also navigate the relationship between April Sexton and Dr. Ethan Choi as they figure out if working together is right for them. Most of all, fans saw Dr. Asher planning to leave while Dr. Halstead plans to stay, and they wonder what that could mean for his future. 

Moving on to the second episode

After watching the first episode of the season, Chicago Med fans tuned into the next one, “Those Hidden in Plain Sight.” Dr. Choi was promoted to Chief of the Emergency Department, while Dr. Manning took some backlash after siding with a patient. This episode explores how there are quite a few mixed feelings regarding Dr. Choi’s promotion, with almost everyone voicing their opinion.

According to TV Insider, Choi tells his ex-girlfriend April Sexton that she won’t be working in the coronavirus unit any longer, and she isn’t all that happy, and Dr. Charles’s drama with his daughter continues. So, what does this all mean for the characters as the season progresses? It appears that there are more than a few relationship issues to cover, both former couples and even promising new ones.
