Tonight, “Chicago Med” is airing its last episode for the month of January in “Graveyard Shift,” otherwise known as an episode that featured Dr. Rhodes operating on a panda. It certainly was one of the stranger episodes that the show’s given us over the past season and a half, but at the same time it was very entertaining. Also, the panda ended up being okay. We have a feeling that if there was a different result, we probably would not be anywhere near as high on it.
So what’s coming up next for the show? Well, you’re going to be waiting a tad longer than usual. The next new episode is entitled “Mirror Mirror,” and this one is going to air come Thursday, February 2. There’s going to be a lot that is uncovered in the hour, and not just when it comes to the patients — the doctors themselves are going to be learning a good bit about each other in the process of what they go through, as well.
Synopsis – “Dr. Manning (Torrey DeVitto) and Dr. Charles (Oliver Platt) treat a teenage girl with a rapidly changing set of symptoms that has everyone perplexed. Dr. Choi (Brian Tee) and medical student Jeff Clarke (guest star Jeff Hephner) encounter a 19 year-old tough guy who is brought into the hospital in severe distress. Once they establish the cause of the pain, the situation quickly turns dangerous and a resolved Dr. Reese (Rachel DiPillo) does her best to help. Elsewhere, Dr. Latham (guest star Ato Essandoh) makes a big admission to Dr. Rhodes (Colin Donnell) while Dr. Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) must deal with a difficult case that is further complicated by Dr. Stohl (guest star Eddie Jemison), who has a camera crew following him around to shoot a promotional video spotlighting the hospital.”
In some ways, it’s interesting that we are getting another story soon about a documentary crew — after all, it was a mere matter of days ago when “Chicago Fire” had a story about Otis trying to make a PSA for the Fire Department.
