How many episodes will 'Chicago Med' Season 7 have? No more long breaks for medical drama

The promo for the thirteenth episode begins with Dr Dylan Scott (Guy Lockard) high-fiving a young girl and assuring his patient that everything will be fine and that they got this, setting a positive vibe in the ever hectic emergency room. Like any other episode, the show features quick action on part of the doctors, and this time it's Dr Will Halstead(Nick Gelhfuss) who is at the helm, jumping into action as the rest of the medics pull up with a bed for an on-site emergency.

As the synopsis tells us about Nurse Maggie Lockwood (Marlyne Barrett) getting shocking news, we see her being hugged by a fellow nurse with Maggie seemingly sad about the development. Looks like there's some big change coming Maggie's way, and we wonder if she's ready for it. We also know that case that the episode will revolve around is an elderly patient's Alzheimer's diagnosis. But like all humans, doctors too, make mistakes with Dr Halstead and the psychiatrist Dr Daniel Charles (Oliver Platt) doubting the accuracy of this conclusion. Also, part and parcel of being a doctor involves taking risks and this time Dr Crockett Marcel (Dominic Rains) in an attempt to help out a patient will be seen taking a gamble.

The upcoming episode of 'Chicago Med' will also see doctors Dylan Scott and Dean Archer treat a pregnant woman and this will mark the second time in a row that the medical team is dealing with a carrying woman. The promo ends with Dr Sharon Goodwin (S Epatha Merkerson) saying she knew he was the right man for the job as a confident, smiling Dr Halstead enters the room for work. This raises the question of whether Dr Halstead is being offered a new role as he continues to prove his reliability. 

'Chicago Med' airs Thursdays at 8 pm ET on NBC
