‘Chicago Med’ Episode Guide (Nov. 21): The Shooting of Dr. Charles Moves to the Courtroom

“Speak Your Truth” Season 3 Premiere (11/21/17) – The doctors of Chicago Med take their opinions to the extreme as they try to bring justice to the perpetrator in the shooting of Dr. Charles (Oliver Platt). Dr. Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) and Dr. Manning (Torrey DeVitto) work on a heart-wrenching case that forces them to examine their own matters of the heart.

Though Robin’s (guest star Mekia Cox) brain tumor was removed and she is discharged from the rehabilitation center, Dr. Rhodes (Colin Donnell) remains on edge that her problems are not quite resolved.

Meanwhile, Rhodes gets blindsided by his colleague Dr. Bekker (Norma Kuhling), Maggie (Marlyne Barrett) sticks up for a patient and Dr. Choi (Brain Tee) and April (Yaya DaCosta) try to navigate their new working relationship.

Kara Killmer, Ato Essandoh, Eddie Jemison and Roland Buck III guest star in the season 3 premiere.

From Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf (the “Law & Order” and “Chicago” brands), “Chicago Med” is an emotional thrill ride through the day-to-day chaos of the city’s newest state-of-the-art trauma center and into the lives of the courageous doctors, nurses and staff who hold it all together.

Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) has to balance the stress as the ER’s supervising Attending Physician while exploring a budding romance with Dr. Natalie Manning (Torrey DeVitto), emergency pediatrics resident. Rising star heart surgeon Dr. Connor Rhodes’ (Colin Donnell) skills are put to the test with the arrival of a new, highly competitive Cardiothoracic Fellow, Dr. Ava Bekker (Norma Kuhling). Dr. Daniel Charles (Oliver Platt) recovers from both the physical and psychological injuries from being shot, but still remains the Sherlock Holmes of psychiatry. Dr. Sarah Reese (Rachel DiPillo) continues her psychiatry residency under Dr. Charles, despite new reservations in the wake of her mentor’s assault. Former Navy flight surgeon Dr. Ethan Choi (Brian Tee) brings his battlefield skills to the front lines of Chicago’s busiest ER, the go-to place for victim’s of the city’s gun violence. Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson), the venerable head of Chicago Med, balances the pressure of keeping the city’s largest hospital afloat while maintaining an atmosphere of quality care and compassion.

April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta) is a smart, bold and intuitive ER nurse navigating the hospital politics of dating a doctor and co-worker. Maggie Lockwood (Marlyne Barrett) is the confident charge nurse and the eyes, ears and brain of the emergency department. Joining the team this season is rival Dr. Ava Bekker, a perennial thorn in the side of Dr. Rhodes while his girlfriend and epidemiologist Robin Charles (guest star Mekia Cox) recovers from her rare illness. April’s ambitious brother Noah Sexton (guest star Roland Buck III) joins the ER as its newest physician.

Together, they will confront Chicago’s most critical medical cases and challenging ethical dilemmas with courage, compassion and state-of-the-art treatment. Inspired by ripped-from-the-headlines cases, “Chicago Med” will weave cutting-edge medicine with the personal drama that comes with working in such a high-intensity environment. Through it all, familiar faces from “Chicago Fire,” and “Chicago P.D” will intertwine with Chicago’s finest medical heroes.

Dick Wolf, Diane Frolov, Andrew Schneider, Derek Haas, Michael Waxman, Arthur Forney and Peter Jankowski are executive producers.

“Chicago Med” is produced by Universal Television and Wolf Entertainment.
