Spoilers forward for Episode 4 of Chicago Med Season 7, known as “Standing Quo, aka The Mess We’re In,” and light-weight spoilers for subsequent week’s “Change Is A Robust Tablet To Swallow.”
Chicago Med raised the stakes with Will’s undercover mission for Goodwin in “Standing Quo, aka The Mess We’re In,” in addition to confirmed the primary indicators that Crockett goes to noticeably think about pursuing a specialty somewhat than stay a basic surgeon. Thankfully, nothing occurred between him and Vanessa, and viewers obtained some extra backstory from Dylan by way of his interactions with Dr. Charles. It was an intriguing episode, however the promo that aired afterward could also be what has lots of people speaking due to the reveal of Fits alum Sarah Rafferty.
Sarah Rafferty performed Donna Paulsen for all 9 seasons of Fits as a necessary member of the authorized group, although Donna wasn’t a lawyer herself. Primarily based on the promo, Chicago Med will likely be taking her in a really completely different route from who she performed on Fits. Actually, additionally in a really completely different route from who she performed on Gray’s Anatomy! Have a look:
Nicely, technically Sarah Rafferty has performed a personality who has toyed with breaching ethics earlier than due to some Fits storylines, however by no means on this manner! Primarily based on the promo, Rafferty will likely be enjoying a surgeon whose daughter has been in some type of accident that has her in tough sufficient form that she’ll want an operation. Crockett clearly doesn’t need to give her the case, and Goodwin at the very least has a lecture in retailer, however will Rafferty’s character nonetheless carry out the surgical procedure?
There are not any particulars out there simply but, however I discover myself questioning if Sarah Rafferty is enjoying a surgeon of upper rank than Crockett. That will clarify how she’s at the very least considerably getting away with pulling the case from him, and why Goodwin won’t go as far to cease her as she would anyone decrease on the ladder. However she might additionally simply be a very strong-willed and unflappable surgeon, who won’t be fairly as unflappable when she finds her daughter on the working desk.
Sarah Rafferty wasn’t introduced as a brand new common or recurring member of the Chicago Med forged, so followers might not need to rely on seeing extra of her past “Change Is A Robust Tablet To Swallow.” Nonetheless, we are able to solely wait and see what occurs subsequent. What we will be assured of is seeing Rafferty stretching her appearing muscle groups in several methods than she did on Fits, and bringing her skills again to community tv.
See Sarah Rafferty on Chicago Med with the subsequent new episode, airing on Wednesday, October 20 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Med is flourishing within the scores as a part of the One Chicago block additionally together with Chicago Hearth and Chicago P.D., so carry on tuning in.
