Our prognosis

Obviously, what happens to Choi when Chicago Med returns depends on what happens to April. If she is pregnant, that completely changes both of their lives—not only because of the baby, but we can’t lose sight of the fact April struggled with a miscarriage before. It’s a hugely emotional story to give them, and they just got back together, too. There are a lot of ways this could turn into more of a soap opera storyline, depending on how it’s written.

Putting his personal life aside, keep an eye on how the show utilizes Choi with all of the off-screen changes that have been made. All signs point to the writers refocusing the series more on the ED, which would mean a bigger role for Choi. He should be taking the lead on more cases and having a few more challenges, which he was missing this season (remember the panda?).

Especially with the chaos going on in Dr. Will Halstead’s (Nick Gehlfuss) life, the best use of Choi would be for him to be a more stable character, and balance out the craziness that Will is going to have to deal with. He may not get the most dramatic storylines, but that’s not what he needs in season 5, anyway. He had more than enough headaches this season!

Choi is underrated in the sense that he’s the dependable character, who may not be the most prominent or most quirky, but he always delivers. The same can be said for Brian Tee. That’s a stability that Chicago Med can use right now while it shuffles itself around.
