Chicago Fire, Med and P.D. take a break for two weeks. Here’s a recap

One Chicago fans will have to be content with reruns as the shows take a break from new episodes for the next two weeks. NBC Universal has shared that new episodes for Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD will air on Wednesday, April 6. 

Back in February Steve Kern, head of scheduling for NBC, shared programming plans with Variety and said, “So for the Chicago shows, we have 22 episodes. The season is 35 weeks. So that means there’s 12 or 13 weeks that we have to schedule either repeats or preemptions to get the shows to fit into the season. I’m more than happy to have a preemption that I know is going to do well, which is the Winter Olympics.”

On Wednesday, March 16, the shows each aired their 16th episodes for the season, but there are approximately 8 weeks left and only 6 episodes, which would bring us to 22 episodes total.

The timing of the break couldn’t be better since each show left us on the edge of our seats! Here’s a recap. (Spoiler alert!)

On March 9th’s Episode 15 of Chicago Med, Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) and Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) were astonished to each receive $1.2 million in settlement rewards for being whistleblowers in the VasComm situation. Sharon decided to donate her share to the clinic, but Will chose to pay off his debts. Then on last week’s Episode 16, May Your Choices Reflect Hope, Not Fear, as per the NBC synopsis, “Will helps a patient with long-haul Covid symptoms. Vanessa (Asjha Cooper) reflects on her dating life when she learns that a patient’s daughter is having an arranged marriage. A new family is born out of tragedy.  Marcel (Dominic Rains) was forced to deal with his emotions surrounding the death of his daughter as he worked tirelessly to save another infant. Dr. Hannah Asher (Jessy Schram) also made a surprise appearance at the end of the episode. 

On March 9th’s Episode 15 of Chicago Fire, we were utterly shocked to learn that Kara Killmer, who plays Sylvie Brett, would be leaving the show indefinitely once her character made the decision to move to Portland to be with her partner Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer). Then in last week’s Episode 16, Hot and Fast. “Cruz (Joe Minoso) forms a bond with a young immigrant boy he meets while fighting an apartment fire. The squad makes plans to prank the newest member of their team. Hawkins (Jimmy Nicholas) and Violet (Hanako Greensmith) struggle to keep their relationship a secret. Hawkins and Violet really couldn’t seem to keep their hands off each other throughout the episode, with several moments where they almost got caught, and Gallo (Alberto Rosende) then heard from another EMT that Hawkins was making out with another EMT. Cruz convinced his wife to take in one of the children our heroes rescued during the episode. 

On March 9th Episode 15, over on Chicago PD, Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Adam Ruzek (John Fluege) had to race to find their adopted daughter Makayla (Ramona Edith Williams) who had been kidnapped and held for ransom by two men. The kidnapping was orchestrated by Nia (Jade Radford), who helped Makayala’s biological father murder her family and who also had a major grudge against Burgess. Then last week on Closer “When a young man is shot outside the Cárabo Bakery, the team works to connect the shooting to bakery owner Javier Escano (José Zúñiga), who has been under surveillance; despite the increasing danger, Voight (Jason Beghe) helps informant Anna Avalos (Carmela Zumbado) get closer to their target. With Anna getting “closer” to her target, the lines of loyalty begin to be blurred as each step she makes seems to be increasingly dangerous for her. 

All is not lost, next Wednesday, March 23, Chicago Med, Fire and PD will air rerun episodes from October 2021. 

Chicago Med will air at 8pm on 3/23 with the episode When You’re a Hammer Everything’s a Nail, from Season 7, Episode 6 and originally aired on October 27, 2021. This was the episode when Hammer (Kristen Hager) had to treat her mom’s (Bonita Friedericy) infection on her arm, had her van towed, and manipulated her into staying with her.
