A car accident at the Chicago Marathon leaves a victim in critical condition and tests the mettle of Dr. Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss), April (Yaya DaCosta) and her fourth-year medical resident brother Noah (guest star Roland Buck III), who must perform a difficult procedure in the field, despite being unqualified, in Chicago Med’s Oct. 20 episode “Extreme Measures.”
Meanwhile, a mother brings in her 8-year-old girl experiencing a sudden hearing loss and Dr. Manning (Torrey DeVitto) is left to tend to the case, which takes a complicated turn.
Dr. Choi (Brian Tee) deals with Olga (guest star Betty Buckley), a charming elderly woman who is malnourished but hiding signs of her inability to make ends meet, prompting him to bring in Dr. Charles (Oliver Platt) to help assess the case.
And Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) takes measures to get her personal life in order.
