Yes, Chicago Med‘s Ethan and April are held up in the fall finals this Wednesday, but the build-up to the big day isn’t without its hiccups.
The episode (airing 8/7c on NBC) is the final episode of Brian Tee from the long-running series as Dr. Ethan Choi, and the seeds of his exit were planted in the season 8 premiere when Yaya DaCosta reprized her role as Ethan’s ex April. The two then resumed their romantic relationship, and by the November 16 episode, her friends and co-workers had received surprise invitations to her wedding. Ethan explained to Dr. Charles that his father’s death crystallized things for him, and that’s probably why things were easier this time around with April. And yet, the couple will have some complicated feelings about the idea of getting married in Wednesday’s episode.
“It’s a big step for these two characters. Both have never been married. It’s a big step, both emotionally and professionally,” Executive Producer Andrew Schneider told TVLine.
In addition to April and Ethan’s personal worries about the marriage, “April’s dad may throw a wrench at work because he has a health issue the day before the wedding,” says Schneider.
As for the wedding itself, it’s very different from Ben and Maggie’s bowling alley wedding and Will and Natalie’s ill-fated ceremony, which took place in the same church as April and Ethan’s wedding.
“It’s a very traditional wedding,” says EP Diane Frolov. Schneider adds, “April’s character is Catholic, so getting married in a church was important. Your family is attentive. So we wanted it to be a traditional wedding in a Catholic church with a priest.”
And it’s not just April and Ethan feeling the love in the fall finale. “Romance is in the air for Charles,” teases Schneider.
Elsewhere in the episode, “Crockett faces tremendous new challenges as a surgeon with new technology,” while “Goodwin faces major changes in hospital administration,” previews Schneider.
