Chicago Med Season 8, Episode 5 debuts on Wednesday night, and the new episode is packing a huge surprise for viewers.

In the last episode of Chicago Med, Dr. Crockett Marcel played the hero after he ran toward a derailed underground train to help with the casualties.

The night also turned into a mini-crossover with Chicago Fire, as Kelly Severide and Christopher Herrmann from Firehouse 51 showed up to help with an intense rescue.

A Crockett-central episode also allowed the writers to close the doors on Dr. Pamela Blake. She has taken a job in Boston rather than return following her recovery.

It was recently announced that Sarah Rafferty had left the Chicago Med cast after playing Dr. Blake for a short while.

The door has now been opened for someone to join the show, and here are some Chicago Med cast rumors for anyone who wants to jump ahead.

It has been revealed that actress Yaya DaCosta will appear as April Sexton in the new episode called Yup, This is The World We Live In. We haven’t seen her since her brief appearance in the Chicago Med Season 8 premiere, but it always seemed like a foreshadowing that she would pop up again.

These particular Chicago Med spoilers weren’t revealed in any TV promos for the show. Still, she has appeared in many promotional images that NBC has available for the October 19 episode.

Chicago Med airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on NBC.
