Given how many people on the East Coast right now are being slapped around thanks to a terrible winter storm, there is probably something very relatable that is going to come out of next week’s new episode of “Chicago Med.” After all, you’re going to be seeing the cast deal with some of the aftereffects of a winter storm. There are going to be some terrible crises that unfold as a result of that will leave some doctors on edge, and others making some decisions that will be incredibly difficult.
“Cold Front” is the title of the episode, and for those of you who love Natalie Manning and Will Halstead, you’ll be seeing them work together. However, at the same exact time, this is not exactly going to be the easiest case that they’ve been confronted with over the years.
Synopsis – “The doctors and nurses of Chicago Med brace for an influx of trauma patients when a pre-dawn pileup finds the hospital in full scramble mode. With Dr. Rhodes (Colin Donnell) and Dr. Latham (guest star Ato Essandoh) handling duties in triage, difficult decisions are made. As a result of the storm and emergencies, supplies become limited and Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson), Dr. Manning (Torrey DeVitto) and Dr. Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) must deal with making an impossible decision. Meanwhile, Dr. Choi (Brian Tee) handles a severely burned patient who has one final request. Dr. Charles (Oliver Platt) deals with an agitated patient who makes his presence known in the waiting room.”
Basically, we’re going to see once again an all-hands-on-deck situation at the hospital, and the biggest thing that we still wonder if why “Chicago Med” hasn’t yet promoted Essandoh to series regular given that Latham is one of the show’s most-interesting and complex characters.
Promo – “Unforgettable” is the word that NBC used to describe this one. Given the snow and the sheer number of patients that are going to be present, we have a pretty good understanding as to why that is the case.
