While the Chihards bunker down to practice the best social distancing measures, the 'Chicago' franchise is back this Wednesday, with 'Chicago Med' airing its 100th episode. It's a special occasion for sure, however, it may not end well for some of our favorite characters.

This week's episode of 'Chicago Med' titled 'The Ghosts of the Past' will deal with multiple cases as usual, but none will be more important to viewers than that of April Sexton's. Before we get into it, let's have a recap.

April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta) and Dr Ethan Choi (Brian Tee) became a couple a while ago on the show and the two have been going steady despite multiple complications, including Ethan's sister — and, of course, April's little transgression in the winter finale of Season 5 where she kissed newcomer Dr Crockett Marcel (Dominic Rains).

April then chooses to never think of it again and when Ethan comes back in the next episode, the two get engaged. Moreover, April and Ethan decide to try to get pregnant for real. With April's medical problems, this meant that she was taking fertility treatments.

However, it looks like things are about to go badly as the promo for this episode shows April clutching her stomach in pain before crying and collapsing. One of the shots in the promo suggests that April might come clean to Choi on what happened with Marcel.

Elsewhere in the episode, Dr Natalie Manning (Torrey DeVito) and Dr Daniel Charles (Oliver Platt) will be working on the case of a child who according to the synopsis is "no stranger to the ED."

A sneak peek for the episode shows Natalie examining the child and later being told that the mother abuses the child.

It will be interesting to see how 'Chicago Med' will be dealing with a potential case of Münchhausen by proxy syndrome, however, with Natalie on the case, we are worried she may once again prematurely take matters into her own hands.

Meanwhile, with all the relationship trauma surrounding Choi and Marcel, the two doctors will be working together to tend to a police officer with a mysterious gunshot. Things will surely get testy between them when April's secret comes out.

'Chicago Med' airs on Wednesday nights on NBC at 8/7c.
