"Chicago Med" Episode 2 Spoilers: Teen mom abandons baby in alley; Doctors tested by hypochondria, dementia cases
The newest NBC series of Dick Wolf's Chicago franchise premiered this week in a pretty strong fashion in terms of ratings and reviews. The question now is whether its premiere audience will stick around for "Chicago Med" episode 2 where the medical team will once again cope up with a barrage of new patients.
In the second episode of "Chicago Med", Dr. Ethan Choi deals with a teen mother who left her newborn in an alley according to Christian Today. This causes alarm to the medical staffers when the teen came to them needing medical attention. Dr. Choi hopefully will be able to set things right for not only the very young mother who is obviously scared and confused but for her baby as well.
Meanwhile, the rest of the residents try to cope with a special case of a person suffering from hypochondria while complaining of chest pains at the same time. A lot of patience is required of everyone dealing with the very anxious patient so he can be assured that everything is okay with his health. Another newly admitted patient is feared by doctors to be suffering from dementia reports TV Guide.
The Chicago doctors' mettle was seriously tested during the show's premiere episode when the injured of a horrific train crash came pouring into the hospital. Dr. Will Halstead took care of a pregnant woman who had brain injury and later found out to be a surrogate. Dr. Halstead talked the real parents into letting the surrogate go through an operation which eventually brought the surrogate and the child to safety.
Dr. Connor Rhodes meanwhile, treated a young man with cystic fibrosis and who developed pneumonia. He had to be put in a ventilator which the patient refused since he wanted to die already. Dr. Rhodes had to convince the patient until he agreed. Elsewhere, another life was saved when a wife-to-be agreed to have her late fiancé's lung transplanted to a young girl.
E Online finds the first episode super engrossing and it didn't even have to rely on cameos from the Chicago Fire and PD people the viewers already know and love. Better still, the episode gave fans so many ER (the tv series) feels that a character from the old NBC series walking through the door would seem totally natural.
The article also says that viewers need to find time to add another excellent show to their TV watching schedule as "Chicago Med" is just as addictive as the other two Chicago series. The show airs Tuesdays on NBC.
