'Chicago Med' Season 5 Episode 11: Will a burned, injured Dr. Sam Abrams survive the plane crash?
It has been a tumultuous season for the 'Chihards' -- we lost Brian 'Otis' Zvonecek at the start of Season 8 on 'Chicago Fire'. The midseason finales for both 'Chicago P.D.' and 'Chicago Fire' ended in cliffhangers with Detective Jay Halstead and Lieutenant Kelly Severide in danger -- though we learned last week that they both made it out safe.
Now, it's 'Chicago Med's' turn as a major plane crash has the doctors working against time to save those who are injured. Patients keep coming in, but it gets a lot more personal when Dr. Marcel Crockett informs everyone that one of the victims -- who has been badly-burned -- is their own Dr. Sam Abrams.
Dr. Abrams is the head of neurosurgery at Gaffney Chicago Medical Center and has been a part of the show since Season 1. While the prognosis does not look good for Dr. Abrams, we hope he makes it through.
Meanwhile, Dr. Natalie Manning and administrator Sharon Goodwin become concerned for Gwen Garrett, the Chief Operating Officer of the hospital. While we don't know what the issue is, Gwen has not been a favorite among the viewers and many fans had previously requested to write off the character when she debuted last season because of her proclivity to prioritize the hospital's reputation over the patient's wellbeing.
We will also see Dr. Will Halstead going to the hospital board with his proposal for a safe injection site. After last week's events -- where Will lost a patient, a young mother, who got addicted to the medicine he had prescribed for her pain years ago, leaving her son at the mercy of Child Protective Services -- he could really use a win.
In the last episode, we also saw that Dr. Ethan Choi was going to propose to April Sexton. However, she chooses to come clean about the kiss she shared with Marcel in the fall finale. This week's episode could confirm whether the "Chexton" relationship will make it or not.
'Chicago Med' airs on NBC on Wednesday nights.
