'Chicago Med' Season 7 Episode 14 Preview: What secret is Dr Hammer's mother hiding?
The return of her mother Terri will see Dr Stevie Hammer confronted with a secret her unreliable mother has been keeping hidden
Spoilers for 'Chicago Med' Season 7 Episode 14 'All the Things That Could Have Been'
NBC's long-running medical drama 'Chicago Med' continues to reign as one of the best ones out there and made its return last week after a long break which left fans very happy. Making a solid comeback, Episode 13 featured many shocking events.
The biggest shock came in the form of Nurse Maggie Lockwood (Marlyne Barrett) receiving the grave news of having an unknown tumor instead of being pregnant so that is a story that will unfold as well. The official synopsis for Episode 14 reads: 'Goodwin assigns Med's new compliance officer to a patient with a long-hauler COVID condition; Maggie helps Halstead treat a patient who's been in an iron lung for 60 years; Hammer learns hard truths about her mother.'
The promo begins as we see Dr Stevie Hammer (Kristen Hager.) question, Dr Daniel Charles (Oliver Platt), about not telling her that her mother was at the hospital. But the psychiatrist does so with good reason as he informs her that he was expressly ordered not to inform her by her mother herself. The short clip ends with Dr Charles speaking to Stevie's mother as he asks her, "What would you like me to tell her"?
From what we know from previous episodes, Stevie's mother is a sore subject for her due to her rocky past with her. Stevie's mother Terri was unable to provide a stable home life for her daughter, which frequently saw them being homeless and having to move around constantly. Despite her hard life, Stevie worked hard and was somehow able to put herself through medical school and become a doctor. An episode in Season 7 saw the mother-daughter reunited as Stevie visited her at the homeless shelter where her mother resided after her van broke apart. Although her mother reluctantly lets her examine her sharing that she has run out of pills, she refuses Stevie's help despite her daughter begging her to get off the streets and saying that she can take care of herself.
Episode 14 hints at plenty of family drama for Stevie with the unexpected turning up of her mother. The promo also poses the ominous question, "Will a mother's secret finally be exposed", so we can expect Stevie to be in for a rough time as she will be seen handling her mother as well as giving her failed marriage another try.
'Chicago Med' airs at 8 pm ET on NBC.
