‘Chicago Med’ season 2 spoilers: Jeff makes a confession to Dr. Manning

Chicago MedThe first week of January is going to prove itself to be a rather eventful time when it comes to the Chicago franchise on NBC. Not only will there be the crossover event for “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago PD” (we’ll have more on those episodes tomorrow), but you’re also going to have a chance to see a new episode of “Chicago Med” on January 5 that will pick off where the first half of the season left off — we’ll see April dealing with her new TB medication, while at the same time some potential feelings involving some of the characters in the hospital could rise to the surface.

This upcoming episode is entitled “Uncharted Territory,” and you have to think that there is a pretty clear reason for that: We’re venturing into some shaky ground for some people! Take a look at the just-released synopsis below for further insight:

“Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) tasks Dr. Charles (Oliver Platt) with evaluating a patient as a possible heart recipient, while Jeff (guest star Jeff Hephner) makes a confession to Dr. Manning (Torrey DeVitto). Dr. Choi (Brian Tee) deals with two MMA fighters who are brought into Chicago Med in bad shape. Elsewhere, Dr. Stohl (guest star Eddie Jemison) returns to the hospital from his sabbatical leave and immediately offers up different medical opinion regarding the treatment of a patient under the care of Dr. Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss). April (Yaya DaCosta) discovers her TB medication may lead to further complications.”

In looking at this particular episode as a whole, the Jeff / Natalie and April stories are obviously the ones that stand out the most, but one of the biggest reasons for that is simply because of the fact that these are the ones that we’ve been building up to; meanwhile, the rest of these seem more organically born within the hour, but could end up becoming a little more important in the episodes to come. A good example of that is story with Sarah Reese regarding Danny; when we first saw that character on the show, there was no indication that she would end up spending much of the first half of the season trying to get him a better life. We just wish that story had a happier ending.
