Things are getting intense once again on ‘Chicago Med.’ In an exclusive sneak peek of this week’s episode, Dr. Charles heads into the office to find a man who claims his heart is pounding so loud, he had to stab himself.
This show’s definitely not for the weak stomach. After a man tried to cut his arm off on a recent episode of Chicago Med, we know that nothing is off limits for Dick Wolf‘s third installment. In a first look exclusive to HollywoodLife.com, we see Dr. Charles (Oliver Platt) come face-to-face with a patient who claims he doesn’t need psychiatric help; but his condition is misleading.
Dr. Charles walks into the patient’s room where he’s being treated by April (Yaya DaCosta) and Dr. Choi (Brian Tee) in after a patient is admitted when he walks in with a pencil sticking out of his head. Quickly, Dr. Charles realizes he’s wearing six shirts but only one pair of pants — duh, it’s “to muffle the sound of his heart.”
Here’s teh full description of the episode, titled “Hearts.”
An erratic patient comes to the emergency department claiming that his heart is pounding inside his head and takes drastic measures to stop it, leaving Dr. Choi (and Dr. Charles to figure out the best course of action. Dr. Manning (Torrey DeVitto) works on a young boy with a broken wrist, but her suspicions abound when the facts don’t add up, prompting her to report the situation to Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) and Dr. Charles, who must make a serious decision. Dr. Rhodes (Colin Donnell) impresses Dr. Downey (guest star Gregg Henry) with his skills inside the operating room, but the pressure takes a toll. Elsewhere, Will (Nick Gehlfuss) receives news about the pending lawsuit, April (Yaya DaCosta) feels a spark in her social life and Sarah (Rachel DiPillo) tries to determine the cause of her recent anxiety.
