What’s happened so far

Crockett Marcel’s first season on Chicago Med has been an interesting one, as the show didn’t waste any time throwing him immediately into the fire.

The way he was brought into the show was different from most characters; instead of having him be a new arrival to the hospital, the writers made him a night shift doctor who was already there and ended up transferring to the day shift after the exits of Dr. Connor Rhodes (Colin Donnell) and Dr. Ava Bekker (Norma Kuhling).

Marcel took over the hybrid OR that Connor had created, and has already made a few waves. He butted heads with April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta) on one case, which somehow led to an attraction between them. Marcel almost kissed her at a staff party, then April did kiss him in the midseason finale.

We also saw Marcel spar with April’s boyfriend Dr. Ethan Choi (Brian Tee) when Marcel and his new right-hand man Noah Sexton (Roland Buck III) went snooping around the Emergency Department looking for surgical cases. It turned out Marcel was right and Choi’s patient did need surgery, but the way he went about the whole thing was just creepy and unprofessional.

Fans did get to see one vulnerable moment out of him, though, during the “Infection” crossover when he couldn’t save a patient affected by the bacteria. But when will we get to know the real Crockett Marcel?
