We’ve all been able to binge-watch all of our favorite TV shows while on lockdown, but leaving a feeling of emptiness when it’s over. On Wednesday, we were left with that same emptiness when Chicago Med aired its final episode for season 5. Chicago Med was added to the trilogy of Dick Wolf’s “Chicago” TV brainchild years ago. With each year we’ve come to learn and love each character. On Wednesday we were reminded why we love Dr. Choi and hate to love Dr. Halsted.
The episode titled “A Needle in the Heart” revealed Dr. Marcel getting a visit from two New Orleans detectives who have questions about his past. We also see that Dr. Choi put his life in danger to save a child and Will wondered if he could trust Hannah. The episode was definitely a fan favorite garnering an all-time high viewership. The “Chicago Med” finale scored 1.1 and 9.2 million viewers, its second-largest viewership tally of the season.
Before the episode aired, Brian Tee & Nick Gehlfuss jumped on IG Live with me to discuss the season finale and how they’re holding up during quarantine.
