'Chicago Med' Season 5: When will Episode 19 air and will Ethan Choi and Crockett Marcel come to blows?
Like the other shows in the 'Chicago' franchise, 'Chicago Med' will end its current season earlier than expected since production is halted due to the pandemic. While earlier, Season 5 was supposed to have 23 episodes, now it will end with the 20th.
However, there are still two episodes left to enjoy. The next chapter — Episode 19 — will unfortunately not air this week as the show goes on one of its scheduled breaks. But considering we don't know when our favorite TV Chicago medical professionals will be back, it might be good to stretch the remaining episodes out.
The next episode of 'Chicago Med' will be back on April 8 in the normal time slot. When the show comes back, viewers might have to gear up for things to get ugly between Dr Ethan Choi (Brian Tee) and Dr Crockett Marcel (Dominic Rains).
During the winter finale of 'Chicago Med', when Ethan left for deployment after a really bad fight with his girlfriend April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta), Crockett ended up sharing an illicit kiss with April. While the two of them stopped at the kiss, for the later episodes we saw Crockett and April share longing looks while April tried to keep the secret from Ethan.
During this, April was also trying to get pregnant — Ethan wanted a family and April wanted to put the past behind her. During her fertility treatments, she ended up taking too much hormone, leading to April being hospitalized. During this vulnerable moment, April came clean to Ethan, who nearly came to blows with Crockett in the middle of the Emergency Department (ED).
While they may have not exchanged punches then, the upcoming episode will certainly feature Crockett and Ethan going at each other. All the tension that had built up leads to this, as the promo shows, the April-Ethan-Crockett love triangle could come to a really messy end this week.
Meanwhile, when Dr Hannah Asher (Jessy Schram) chooses to opt for a risky treatment plan, she is met with opposition from other doctors. However, Dr Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) sides with her. Things between them are quite complicated. First, Will saved her from overdosing when he was working at an illegal safe injection site. Then he reported her to the authorities when he realized she was practicing as a doctor at the hospital while high.
Then, after she came back from rehab, Will and Hannah started dating. Then, when Will realized Hannah was getting addicted to romance instead of drugs, he broke off things with her. We can expect the situation to be a little messy with these two.
Elsewhere in the episode, Dr Daniel Charles (Oliver Platt) evaluates a 15-year-old who is brought into the ED after an apparent fall off an overpass. We know none of Daniel's cases are straightforward and it will be interesting to see how he moves forward in this episode.
'Chicago Med' airs on NBC on Wednesday nights at 8/7c. The next episode will air on April 8.
